This is going to be my only post on this thread:
Borys: The pillow thing is silly. No one is going to follow that. In which case.. a Pillow? Should've been like "pass the rock or something more manly/game related.
Charl: WDTFS ended because of your poor leadership. I have only met THREE People with GOOD Leadership. That's AD, The Berglemonster, and Admiralreynolds (this is throughout my time In Grepolis). All three have shown great diplomacy skills, mechanic knowledge, support and guiding of players new and old, and is always thinking ahead and has other qualities of a true leader.
In which case I don't see how you're calling Borys and Noob because out of you two that title definitely belongs to you...
AD: The thread about your alliance's end is somewhat true imo with this: you have too large a group to control effectively. I say that because although you do have a couple of good players from Tau, many of the people in your alliance aren't known well if not at all. And that's a weakness you'll have to deal with.
Exit Strategy: You're right about at the same problem with AD but at a lesser degree.
Now if you two merged, you all will win the crown for sure. But why take the fun out of the game? You both have gold users galore and you both have well known players and tactics.
I was brought here by ES' team but was booted because I "didn't grow fast enough". Okay cool. I never planned on making this a real world as it was. Just a learning world. Just like I did with Tau and Beta. So I understand that point, along with I never use gold because IMO, if you're a gold user it just tells me you're not a real player and have to rely on help and aids to become an effective player.
Players whom are sharp, effective, and strong IMO are those whom do good amongst adversity, and thrive while also using little (less than 200) to no gold at all.
But anyways, good luck to everyone. I'll be watching.
MOD and OP: I tired to keep that as "friendly" as I could for you guys. Sorry if my post isn't "up to par" on it..
