I agree, and for that I apologize. I do not allow anything that would call into question the integrity of my team. I can assure you I will handle this swiftly and in the harshest manner possible.
Wow, talk about a major derail. Went from talking about top alliances to raking people over the coals.
The group being picked on now, (Knock Knock) the crown winners of Nu...they only have a handful of those NU players here in Nax. They did have competition from US Army and their allies. I was with them til my computer crashed. While the player base and skill levels here in the US servers is smaller than the EN servers it is getting better. People leaving speed 1 and 2 worlds to play a speed 3 world isn't anything new. It's a very noticeable change.
I'm not sure what happened that got everyone upset but 5 of the big alliances jumping on 1 for a personal vendetta doesn't seem like something to brag about to me. Could the outcome be anything different? It's a game people!
Might as well delete this whole thread and start over.

I took back the comment on the big 5 because I don't know the details. All I know is this is a game and if a new player sees the way people get treated when they lose...why would they want to put themselves through that? The most important part of this game is the people who play it. I wasn't trying to offend anyone. I've had my butt handed to me several times when I first started. It happens. But I didn't get crushed on the externals when it happened. I don't know if they left because of the rimming or the speed world. I'm not trying to single anyone out. This game counts on word of mouth to grow somewhat. While I agree with freedom of speech the harsh treatment of people reflects on all of us.
Joshua: You knew what he meant
Zennor: WOW you sound like a noob. Question, have you ever looked at the externals before? Between here and the en server, I would guess that there's been a very large quantity of posts about alliances losing. I can't say that number for sure obviously, but very, very easily 5k-30k (broad range since I don't feel like counting that many posts lol), maybe more.
People LOVE to insult the alliance they just beat-up on. The only time it doesn't happen is when neither side of a war uses the externals. Otherwise, there's always some trash talking.
The argument that DA 'left for a faster world', seems like a rather shallow one to me. First of all, the unit speed is the same, which means everything moves just as fast as it does on Naxos: if you're in trouble, you'd have just as much time to react here in Naxos as over there on Olympia.
Well, secondly, indeed, Olympia is a speed 3 world, Naxos a speed 2 world. This means everything is SO much faster. Like, 1.5 times. Wow. Your timber camp takes 2 hours instead of 3!
Now, as I payed a little attention to the growth pattern of most DA players, I think it's safe to state (some of) you use gold in large quantities. I use gold myself as well, so I know damn well how to use it: to cut down the construction time of buildings, units, etc.
So, let's hold up here for a second. That timber camp that took us 3 hours here on Naxos; I don't feel like waiting that long, let me cut it 7 times. Would build in roughly 1 minute and 24 seconds - not too shabby
Now, on the much faster Olympia, it would only take 2 hours. But still, that's so damn slow, I'll chop it in half 7 times. Damn, I'm amazed, the difference is astounding: 56 seconds instead of 1 minute and 24 seconds! Those 28 seconds you saved by hopping to the next server... Damn right that's worth it!
Now, for real, if you guys are telling yourself this, that's rubbish. You know how to play with gold, you're not shy to use it either. 'waiting time' is a mere concept that's subject to change, as much as you feel like spending on having it changed. And don't get me started on producing 1.5 times more resources: a few months into the server you're sitting on so much resources you'd rather cut down a few building levels to slow your production, because your warehouse overflows otherwise. You chose to forfeit after the dead weight you had tied to your feet dragged you down. You tried to teach a couple new players the ropes, tried to help them get somewhere and they didn't bat an eye. You got your ass handed to you, but rather than admitting it, saying you got screwed by a couple of members, you come up with excuses, excuses and more excuses - and the best of it all, is the fact that the guy defending DA's ass here didn't even play the server.
Like mflip stated, to be the best, you have to beat the best. You got beaten, that's fact, not fiction. Maybe in future encounters, you'll hand our ass to us. And I hope we'll bow our head and salute you, rather than throwing crap at your faces for 'not having your facts right'.
You say you would rather spend your time fighting than building up cities. If that's true why would you restart on an entirely new world (that will require the beginning build up phase again) that has the EXACT same unit speed? The only different thing about this new world is the building speed. Kind of contradicts your entire statement.You may not care about it and everyone else on this server may not, but I would rather spend my time fighting than building up my cities.
long before you get to 50 citys you should be taking citys that dont need so much attention, your excuses are rediculous, you should be more worried about building troops with 50 citys and getting things done then the 2 or 3 buildings a city that need attention here and there that are easily remedied while tending to other citys and troops. sound more like your worried about simming and the time that takes then fighting,which is probably wwhy you guys are running for the next server.
