We were hoping for the first little war of the server. War meaning both sides taking cities, not a general beatdown of an alliance.
It is odd that the leaders of the second biggest alliance fled their alliance because they felt "fragile". Sounds like a self esteem issue. The war with DW was going well as far as I knew from the forums. We had taken at least as many cities as they did (to read the running count we had). War is a good way to weed out the weak. Once they are identified they can be cut or brought up to speed. It was the leaders fault for not weeding out the inactives or barely actives or tutoring the noobs on how to defend themselves. I've led an alliance before so I know how difficult and time consuming it can be but for an entire leadership team to conspire to bail on their TWO alliances because of internal problems well...they should only blame themselves. This was not a merge, it was a handful of people who felt too big for their britches and thought they could do better.
You were able to take like 15 cities from them...congrats I guess. What a huge accomplishment lol
