    Sure would be nice to have as many spies as SIM does. Always seemed a bit underhanded and . . . dishonest . . . wouldn't u say so, Heart . . . err . . . Dumbow?

    It sure would be nice if citadel had fewer players attacking the real target with phalanx as well (<-- at least that you can control; every alliance has spies)

    We don't need Spys to tell us you were hitting 4 villages from 2 accounts, the defence at those villages were all arranged by cows that can see the future...

    Spies and propaganda are part of the game. It keeps things interesting. If I was in CITADEL I'd really question leadership when they tell me to send my troops to splat like that. Based on the battle reports you can probably tell who isn't spying.

    Does take some of the skill out of the game, though. Cheapens it. Especially for an alliance that claims they are so strong they don't need allies.

    It's not that SIM have spies, it's that Citadel has leaks. Let's look at the real problem.

    Citadel clearly has no security, and lets just about ANYONE into their alliance.

    As evidenced by them letting YOU in before you turned traitor.

    Please stop your whining - every alliance has spies. It is part of the game, and may not be used as a legitimate excuse for poor game play. You fail again by demonstrating that you do not understand this aspect of the game.

    I'm not sure how you can say I was a "traitor".

    I was in the alliance for 2 weeks and decided that I didn't want to be with the alliance, as have MANY others.

    There is nothing traitor about that. I can see, maybe, if i spent 1/2 a server there? Or maybe, like, a few months even, then you MAY have SOME ground to throw names like that, but you can check getter. I was with Citadel 14 days before I realized that it wasn't what I wanted.

    Did not SIM evolve from "traitors" like me? Who were part of Citadel, but decided that they wanted something else out of the game? The same "traitors" who just smacked down like 50k in Citadel offense?

    I guess. . . maybe. . . your definition of Traitor. . . might be synonymous with. . . logical? Experienced? Free-minded?

    What is your IGN anyhow? I don't see it in your signature. I could have hid mine too ya know

    And the truth of the matter is, that we DID NOT NEED SPIES to defend against this POORLY PLANNED Citadel operation. I mean, 5 alliance attacking two accounts? And more specifically (so far) two villages on 1 account?

    For everyone outside of CIT and SIM that haven't received all the facts. CIT sent fakes at 2 accounts, not even all villas. Decently far apart. Nothing in between. 1 of these accounts was the real. Some of us still ate up decent amounts of D in preparation that something else might happen.... And in the event of a counter? I don't even know how many defensive troops we ate in bad clears and fakes. Half of the fakes were blatantly obvious. You don't NEED spies for garbage like this.

    Step 1. Check the player defense board.
    Step 2. Check the alliance offense board.
    Step 3.

    Do you know why we're patting our own backs on this one? Because we deserve it. In all honesty, I don't know what you're trying to do anymore. It's like you exist, so I can laugh.
    No matter what you say, or do, you will not, can not, win an argument on the internet. Not with me, not with anyone.

    yeah. . . I couldn't imagine being a Citadel right now. They lost their "flame" today. . .

    I honestly feel very sorry for all the misguided hammers that went splat today following a half-wit leadership plan...

    Those really could have gone to better use under different circumstances. . .

    The whole time we were getting incoming, I was saying to myself, "We gotta hold back a lot of defense. They are throwing all these fakes to two account to draw in reinforcements. They are going to put the reals somewhere else, because I know they have to be smarter than that!"

    ...sad to say... i was proven wrong.

    Wow. Thanks for pointing that out. I did not realize you could achieve round a 0.4-0.45 kill to 1 wheat per hour offense used ratio with phalanx. That is fairly impressive. I mean, they must have been fully upgraded in the Smithy. That would give them, what, 20 attack power each? Otherwise, the kill ratio would have been much lower. BR's like those seriously make me want to consider a huge phalanx hammer. Another 50,000 of them or so and they might have broken through...

    Seaweed, seeing as you have stopped your war with CITADEL, if you put me as your sitter I'll start another war for you.
