    I did the same thing when you killed all my raiders. My own fault for not having standing defense, but with a little gold, I only lost ~6 hours raiding.

    Which is it? If you "watched" the army transfers (following battle reports) in Carthago then you must be in CARTEL. Did you make the cut for the big team or did they put you on the JV squad?

    Hi, Hulk here.. Pretty sure you're not on my account as the ability to build and recycle hammers seems to be lost to you. I would however be interested in knowing where you are located so my next batch of recyclables can be shipped directly to your doorstep.. Or are you too much of a coward to reveal your in game name in fear of being blown into smithereens by a clearly more talented group which is H&V?

    Last time I checked we had 3 or 4 leaders. But we have not met or done anything but point out goals for most of the round.
    We did find/make/convince others to make some tools early on, but we have not really even needed that for at least two months now.

    Here is an average convo between me and a member who wants to run an idea past leadership

    Them: It would be great if we did "A".
    me: That sounds like a decent idea. How would you go about it?
    them: step "X", step "Y", step "Z"
    me: Some of the players you want to use are currently doing "B". Maybe if you did "V" instead of "X", lit would work better.
    them: ok
    me: Go ahead and set up a skype room and see who else you can interest in your idea.

    There have also been 2 or 3 disputes. Those go rather differently.

    them: "A" did "X" and I don't like it.
    me: Our rules are (insert rule here). Common Travian courtesy is (insert common Travian courtesy here).
    me: Please contact them and work this out peacefully. Send them to me if you can not work it out.

    If needed, I then repeat the rules and courtesy thing. Problem over.

    ^^ This is how an alliance is supposed to work.. When you have as many vets as we have in H&V then it makes a leaders' job smoother to coordinate the team.. A true vet knows how to put past servers behind them, and get along with other vets.. We also all know how to build accounts and attack/defend efficiently enough to the point that we appear to all be gold whoore's to everyone else of lesser travian skill..

    Ah, classic thread degeneration into a foot-stamping, poo-flinging tempest. It would make me proud if I wasn't so humble.

    But hey, we got us a horse race! What there is, is what we know, and what's left is what we're going to find out.

    Here's what we know.

    1. H&V is really good. Those of us that aren't really good and dedicated (ahem) may spend some gold to keep up, but hey, that's Travian. Live it or live with it.

    2. H&V, knowing they are pretty good, have taken the high road of limiting their numbers. We win, we get to brag louder; we lose, well, we lose.

    3. The Meta has emerged from the well-worn Travian saga of early failed alliances, failed midgame aliances, demagogues, ideologues and pecan logs to mash together a - wait for it - A Winning Possibility! Well done. So far. Not without some drama, to be sure, but that's par. Let us remember the meta mantra: Victory Points, Victory Points, Victory Points. Ya done it, good on ya, that's all that matters.

    So here we are, and that's what we know. What's left to find out?

    1. Can H&V keep those plates spinning with 45 accounts?
    2. Has Meta paid more attention to arithmetic than Panzer Greift, and assembled a VP-generating alliance of daffodils?
    3. Will Travian run out of gold, creating a global financial crisis and the end of the world as we know it?

    Time will tell.

    This is something I said in the first few days of the server, that this particular set up would benefit the huggler mentality better..
    In reality, those type of players really needed a server designed around the blob style..

    How interesting it will be if H&V can pull out a win with our limited numbers.. That, I think would be the nail in the coffin of the quality vs. quantity argument once and for all..

    No, they will move on to green back promissory notes printed by the Roman FED, to which end the Gauls and Teutons will cry out to audit the FED..

    Decent summary, can't disagree with much other than point 3, I don't believe OCD was an example of an early failed alliance, they were much more organised than Cartel, they just lacked the top players to execute.

    Mozart, you have come around a little

    I am not sure though what is a top player. This game is as much about war as is about diplomacy. Is a top player one whose strength lies in strategy? Is the top player one that can make things happen? Is the top player the one that is smacked all over the top 10 lists?

    Not necessarily quality versus quantity. More like professionals against amateurs as you have often portrait the rest.

    You must remember that H&V came with a plan and strategy to win. They came with the "select" team. The remaining players don't even belong on the server, as you have mostly hinted they don't even compare. That's absurd, they belong on the server and they decided to do something about it. They had no plan and brought themselves together with a strategy! The question is how, who did it? That SOB or SOBs perhaps is(are) to be given credit.

    Even the pompous "select" team must give them all credit.

    I did recently talk to one of the Metas on skype after a few IGMs: ".our numbers are of no importance, but would you leave a family member behind?" I would say that is integrity and deserves respect.

    This is how we selected the team: In nearly defunct chat rooms from the last couple of servers, someone said, hey, anyone want to play on SE? Anyone who said 'yeah, sure, what the heck,' was selected.

    Strategy to win: get the most VP.

    It seems obvious that with the SE set-up, the way to win was to get enough population to control an area and then move on to the next, rather than the traditional build-up of a single stronghold per player. It's not a big seekrit.
