Sadly although I love insulting all of the other alliances in this world and their noobish players there aren't many of you that are good at trash talking. I join the forums for a single day and bash you not so upstanding not so gentlemanly individuals and the forums die. There needs to be a place where we can insult each other freely. In this thread feel free to call out any and every one of your enemies. If there are not tirades in this forum in less than three days I will be forced to insult you in PM's... no one wants that.

It is only fair that I start the banter...

High Lord Ross,

I would like to invite you to a tutorial session on how to play this game well, as I can see that as a fellow trash talker you are yet to figure out how to back it up. First and foremost sending unescorted troops is a bad idea. I understand this unescorted term may be unfamiliar to you so let me explain when sending your troops in transport ships you should always escort them with LS... in your case biremes would also be acceptable... anything would be a step up.


...AND BEFORE YOU ASK Transport ships are not considered escorts when you send them with FAST transport ships

TUNE IN TOMORROW FOR ROSS' COACHING SESSION PART II

P.S. Check out the forum rules before you seriously go off there are actual rules to trash talking on the forums make sure you know them so you don't get banned

:mad: HOW DARE YOU INSULT MY GREPOLIS PROWESS I WILL SMASH YOU TOO SMITHEREENS AND DANCE ON YOUR GRAVE!!!!
Is this what you were looking for hahahaha
My advice for a noob like you is let your alliance do all the work for you because I don't think you are capable of taking a 175pt city by yourself. After that I feel like I need to tell you that Swords and Archers are for defense not offense.
Gruntie this is all harmless

My good man,

When it is imperative that I must inform you that transport ships are not escorts for fast transports I must commend you on the fact that you know that there is a difference between offensive units and defensive units. Everyone applaud we are making progress...

Apparently we must now skip to lesson three because that was indeed lesson two... you must have gotten your hands on a guide since we last said hello.

Lesson 3:
You said your alliance was amazing in another post that I happened to glance at. Then I look at the majestic statistics that you characters have and I have noticed but one simple fact. We beat you in everything. I must ask how does it feel to be good, but not good enough? I am curious. I mean your number two player, a Mr. Xx Jiang Yi xX's only claim to fame was that he disbanded an alliance with a single mass mail. Although this might seem ferocious, when your alliance is so small that my points during bp beat the entire alliance's points the argument could be made that you aim to low my good man. Disbanding the 7th alliance in the world geeze might as well be 10,000.

Lesson 3's Moral: Be the best dont try to be

Hey buddy you all have 49 members we have 40 all your lovely stats aren't quite accurate though you are leading us in avg abp by 3k we fly past you in both avg points and avg bp.
Lesson for you why merge with another alliance, shouldn't you just take their cities you guys were much scarier with 19 members then you are with 49... i mean come on it just screams MRA :D

What did you kick someone an 8k avg points boost in 10 min in pretty good for a 40 person alliance? Did you kick someone because you didnt want to be second in everything? MUAHAHHAHAHAHAHAH ;)

Do I need to explain basic principles of managing an alliance to you? You don't want the members of your alliance who don't participate or are aggressive, I mean look at you, looks like you are struggling poor guy. You must need a mentor, sorry but my plate is too full leading a fantastic alliance to teach you the fundamentals. But I will tell you one thing, having defense is a good idea even if you all are the number one attackers relying on your sisters to defend you isn't a good idea... especially when I heard rumors that they were angry at you guys and might end up getting in a sibling fight :eek:

Lesson 4: Be aggressive

Thank you for yet again informing me that you need my help.

You don't want the members of your alliance who... are aggressive
Ladies and gentlemen please pay no mind to this amature above me. Even after reading all of my other posts in other tabs he still misses the fundamental concepts that dictate who wins this world. Being aggressive is probably the best single characteristic for any one in your alliance to possess, next is team work but this is just ROSS' COACHING SESSION I will teach his alliance later. ABP is literally ALL that matters. If you are attacking enough who could attack you... you killed their entire offense. Then people turtle (Ross that is build a substantial percentage of your cities to be defensive) and because they no longer have enough offense to take a city from your alliance they are forced to rely on worthless tactics and/or the game giving them treats in the form of ghosts (again for you Ross... dont be scared the ghosts are not demons coming to get you in the night... they are those little grey cities you see popping up all over when we rim the founder of an alliance and the rest of them quit). I hope this provided some clarification for you my good man. My alliance is rooting for you and we hope that you are able to catch up in tactics before we run through you guys too. We are looking for a good fight and sadly from the stats you may be our last chance.

MORE TO COME...

P.S. I am glad my comments about how terrible it was being second allowed you to re-evaluate your team's position and step up their game. You are learning so much. I am so proud. Without formally educating you, you were able to read between the lines and trim the fat out of your alliance... KUDOS !!!

How I hate spelling mistakes haha figures it would be something important like that....
Jeb I feel like your basic grasp of this game is lacking so while you tell me all the things you have recently learned, it is okay we were all noob once, let me teach you an important lesson.
Your comment about attacking enough you kill your enemy's offense, well there is this technique called dodging where You move out your offense before an attack lands.
Okay I'm not sure if your game is ready for a complex strategy, after all you didn't know dodging. You ready? When someone attacks your offense city(don't worry I'll explain offensive cities when I think your ready, time your retaliation so that your attack lands when theirs returns.
That is complex I know, it will be okay your rudimentary game may not be ready.
Can a mod change the title of this thread to Ross' Lessons to Jeb?

Yet again your turtle status fails you sir. You assume that you have 1 city and that is all I will attack you in. I see that you have 9. So lets say you are a good turtle, which it seems you may have some skills in this area, and you like to dodge just to defend revolts. First and foremost thank you for allowing my troops to live while also making my kill/death ratio on my city take over improve. What will happen when you dodge me as I hit each and every city you have is I will simply revolt all 9 as well as taking the walls to 0. This in turn will require you spend tons of resources and gold to maintain your title as the SUPREME RULER OF THE TURTLES (that is right that name will stick). While you are attempting to restructure and climb the ladder back to your former title we will smash each and every city and send colonies. We will all time our attacks to land at the same times (see the next lesson for timing like a champ... you will like that one) so if you would like to keep some of your cities you can try and snipe, but as I said we time like champs so good luck, however you will be forced to split your defense 9 ways. Thus I keep my kill death ratio high and you loose all of your cities... enjoy the rim with that tactic.

Of course you also assume that you will be skilled enough to pull off a dodge and counter, but we all know that this is just not the case because our team is actually good and you cant do it to everyone. Again I must inform you of another small detail you missed. We dont have 1 city anymore... the game has changed and new tactics are needed so kudos to getting your noob star you have learned enough to make it past week 1... too bad we are in week 8. Dodging is not nearly effective go get the intermediate guide they will teach you some stuff I dont have time to teach everything when I am posting once a day here.

I should be getting paid for this,
The One and Only

You guys are hilarious, but I technically have to be on Ross's side for the sake of the friendship

Oh Jeb, Jeb, Jeb looks like we will have to go back to square one with you.

this technique called dodging where You move out your offense before an attack lands.
Offense units are not for defending you defend with Swordsmen Archers and Hoplites, there are others but I don't want to give you too much info and confuse you. So while you may defend with slingers you K/D ratio won't be so swell when I come knock knocking on your doors. I mean feel free it will make my job more rewarding. But while you are doing that I will defend every city and tromp your army, after all if you defend with OLUs you must attack with DLUs.
Oh and
Lesson 5: Dont be a turtle
I hit each and every city you have is I will simply revolt all 9 as well as taking the walls to 0.
JEB
Well amigo I'm going to guess even with a real army you couldn't break my walls in any city... I see you have 2 cities, and being surrounded by your allies I doubt you have even built more than one level on your wall actually knowing how confident in your abilities you are you probably have less than 120 dlus in your cities. Furthermore I'll guess you have 40 ls and 7-900 Olus in one city and 60 ls in the other. That will be an easy clear.
Calling me "SUPREME RULER OF THE TURTLES" is quite the compliment but not accurate, of course you will run into a turtle city if you attack it will be because my friends. Oh yes eat your heart out, my allies will defend some and I will defend some. As for sniping Cs's well i can time it to the second, though I know with as many friends as you have there will be multiple attacks in that second, but when you guys attack with 600 slingers and 200 hops that isn't hard to defend against at all.
To be honest right now if any of you tried taking any of my cities I would just have to laugh, taking a city 20 hours away by cs is not a very smart move. But then again Nooby MRA's don't know much better :p
Quick question, weren't you bragging on leading us in every stat? You aren't now :)

Hah whoops CoD bleeding through I guess I should explain this for Jeb as well. Grepolis is about resources every last thing in this game is about how much resources you can muster and how effectively you use them.
so when i say k/d ratio i mean the resource value of the offensive units vs. the resource value of the defensive units lost
