Interviews

Victorious Secret

What are your thoughts on the world?
Chocolate Franchise said:
It's starting to take its form. Now that the event is over we will start seeing who are the more active alliances and who was just golding heavy.
According to the Oracle, your alliance seems to change its targets to ReBooted.. Have you declared war on them?
Chocolate Franchise said:
We haven't declared war on anybody. All we see is targets in our immediate area, which we would like to keep clean and only have blue flags. But for now we're still playing farmville, and are not at war with anybody.
Also some of Men of Mayhem's players are joining your alliance. Is this a merge or are they just players jumping the ship?
Chocolate Franchise said:
We have friends over at Men of Mayhem and I believe a few players wanted to play with their friends here. I'm not the right person to talk to about that, I don't handle recruiting. Regardless of the players that come to us from MoM, MoM will survive and prosper due to having excellent leadership over there.
Why is Victorious Secret so successful in this world?
Chocolate Franchise said:
I wouldn't call us successful yet. The world is young and there is a lot still to happen. Our short term success can be accredited to us coming over with a solid group of players who have been playing the game for a while now. We all know what we are doing and are active/communicate very well.
Your alliance is currently 2nd place in O55. What do you think is going to happen in that ocean?
Chocolate Franchise said:
Well there's a lot that can happen still, like I said the world is still young. It is divided pretty well with PS in the North, MoM in the East and us in the South. There is also PID and Rebooted scattered through the ocean. I guess only time will tell what to make of o55.
What are your relations with the alliances you mentioned?
Chocolate Franchise said:
We have no relationship with any of the mentioned alliances, nor do we have a relationship with any alliance in this world. If anybody wants to play Farmville with us though, feel free to give us a shout.
To end the interview, what do you think will happen in the future?
Chocolate Franchise said:
That's a very vague question, so here is your vague response. There will be a winner and many losers.

James Excaliber
Agent Orange

[spr]
What are your thoughts on the world so far?
James Excalibur said:
sorry got busy at home...
I am enjoying this world so far...It is a little slow growing but it will fill out enough I think.
The wars have been interesting already for sure!
Your alliance has taken a lot of cities from HAVOC. Is your alliance at war with them?
James Excalibur said:
Yes we have been going at it with them for a little while now.
What is the score?
James Excalibur said:
I want to say somewhere around 20-2 ...but those 2 lost cities are now back in the alliance.
Was there a merge between your alliance and HAVOC or were the players that joined your alliance jumping ship?
James Excalibur said:
No merge. There were some very active players in havoc not very happy with there direction and choose to join us rather than fight against us.
Who came up with the name Agent Orange and is there any significance to that name?
James Excalibur said:
Socrates1981 came up with it after a team discussion about it...It is an inside joke related to fruit. Last world we were a banana ...this world an orange.
To end the interview, what do you think will happen in the future?
James Excalibur said:
I believe that my team will keep fighting the good fight. The cream of the world will rise to the top. There are several good teams out there so it will be any ones guess who will take it down.
We just look forward to having a good time, making some friends, and hopefully taking down a few cities!

The-Jester
Legion of Death

[spr]
What are your thoughts on the world so far?
The-Jester said:
Halloween event lead to alot of offense early on which has made it fun for me as I took advantage of the event. Their are lots of top level alliances and players here so I am excited to see what happens
Your alliance seems to be conquering cities from Invictus and INVICTUM. Are you at war with them?
The-Jester said:
We have multiple alliances marked red no true wars yet to test our steel. They have just served as a decent food supply for some of our members.
Is your alliance from another world or did you recruit the members in Edessa?
The-Jester said:
Legion of Death won Delphi and a good amount of those Delphi players are playing under LOD here.I know a lot of the players have played with each other on other worlds. It is a pre made that has picked up a few players in this server such as myself
Is this EN Delphi or US Delphi?
The-Jester said:
You are currently in 3rd place in O44. What is your relationship with the other alliances?
The-Jester said:
Neutral with PS as they are too far away right now for war or working together. We are also neutral with Usual Suspects as we are currently focusing on securing our core and moving our smaller players into some decently sized cities so we can start some actual fighting
On November 15, you and few other members decided to leave and 2 days later, rejoined the alliance. What happened?
The-Jester said:
Those players and I left because we had some disagreements with who we could attack. Instead of handling it like reasonable people and talking to the leaders we decided to be a bunch of jack asses and leave so we could attack who we wanted. We realized that we are a bunch of idiots and apologized for our stupid decision and returned.
To end the interview, what do you think is going to happen?
The-Jester said:
It is still very early in the server to make predictions but from what I have been watching I think Usual Suspects will fall to Parthian Shot and I think Havoc will get a second wind and start successfully fighting back against Agent Orange and Serial Killers but I expect within the next month or two they will also fall

Exclusive News
Recently, there have been many mergers occurring between alliances. But there’s one merge that caught my eye. The one I am talking about is the Shoot and Scoot and the Reboot. They have merged now here is what they said about the merge.
Cheater of Life
Reboot

[spr]
What are your thoughts on the world so far?
Cheater of Life said:
I like it so far. Because the world took long to grow a lot of top alliance are very close to each other. I think that will make for some very big wars.
Seems to me Shoot and Scoot has practically disappeared. What happened to it?
Cheater of Life said:
The active players are in Rebooted now.
Why did your alliance merge into their alliance? Were both leaderships discussing this for weeks or was it sudden? And now you've merged into the new alliance, what would happen to the remaining players still in Shoot and Scoot?
Cheater of Life said:
We shared a common enemy and they had a lot of good players close to us. It made sense to work as one. I guess you can say it was sudden. It was talked about for a few days and the talks went smoothly. The remaining players are inactive or simming in their own little world. So it shouldn't be long before they get rimmed.
Now, you've joined their alliance, what do you think of the alliance?
Cheater of Life said:
It looks like a nice experienced group. It has been a smooth transition. They welcomed us with open arms and they work well as a team.
Has your alliance declared war on anyone yet? If so, who?
Cheater of Life said:
Not to sure if I can say that. We are fighting some alliances and I would say we have fared ok so far.
To end the interview, what do you think will happen in the future?
Cheater of Life said:
Alliances will fall, others will rise, and in the end one alliance will have a nice tiara for their trophy room.

Hankins
Reboot

[spr]
What are your thoughts on the world so far?
Hankins said:
Things have changed a ton since the last time we spoke. Alot of alliances changing positions...plus im happy the Halloween event is over.
What do you think is going to change once Halloween's over?
Hankins said:
Alot is going to change. The days of people spending 200 gold and getting 30 Mani's is over. It takes no talent to do that. People were sending out mani nukes as soon as the protection was lifted...it was a joke. Now they don't have the means to do that, you have to be more calculating...you have to have talent to take cities not gold.
Recently, Shoot and Scoot merged into you. Why did it occur? Was it sudden or was the merge discussed for weeks?
Hankins said:
Strength in numbers my friend! I'dd love to discuss the diplomacy secrets...but you know....its a secret
How do you feel after the merge?
Hankins said:
Im very happy to have them. Alot of great players joining us. More things happen during a merge then most people think, not only do they bring the numbers with is always good...they also bring the diplomacy and contacts they have in other alliances...this can be priceless. Its always good to know others in both NAP alliances and also enemy alliances. We may be at war with PS but i still talk to a few of them....Grepolis is not only a war game......it's also politics.
What are your thoughts on the alliances in O55?
Hankins said:
The dynamic has changed over the last week. A majority of our alliance is cored in central 55 PS is pushing from the north and VS is pushing from the south. Like i said in the previous question I talk with alot of people from several alliances...rumor has it alot of big things are happening soon. But overall I get along with everyone and I enjoy the messages back and forth between not only ally's but also enemies.
To end the interview, what do you think is going to happen in the future?
Hankins said:
well sir, that all depends on if its Clinton or Trump
