Max has actually played a blinder here, WW should have took their opportunity to team up with trans when they were on top, instead they refused - it was always going to be a 2v1 whichever way you look at it

the sad thing is its the alliance with a green title being hammered straight in the ass

In the last couple of weeks Trans have done well to grab the win; admittedly by not necessarily honourable means.

As for the rest of the round- a blinder? Not in a million years.

On the 2v1 note- I can't really understand the vitriol in the sense that it's happened so many times before in virtually every round. It's not nice to be on the receiving end, but I expect most people have been on the other end at some point in their Bush lives!

Edit: Also, I agree with Cyrus. I think WW really missed their chance to win this.

I'm just deeply disappointed in Trans, and WW.

Disappointed in WW for attacking us, for what, to get second? Why not attack Trans with DW and go for first? LOGIC?! Obviously, they have none.

Disappointed in Trans for not being able to do their dirty work themselves. Instead they have to have another alliance with them. Pathetic.

Oh well. What a win for Trans, which had to come from another alliance help.

Great leading Max, especially after hitting sleep from 1 mass from us. Good role model for the alliance!

I don't get why people are declaring a win for Trans already tbh... with Ranks 2 and 3 so big and the score difference not being that much either. It could all change with a handful of successful and well planned attacks from any of them.

It's looking promising team! \o/

My current calcs are that even if Chris comes out of sleep this evening (no idea if he will or not) and gets more income over the last few days, he'll still finish on approx 75b, with me on approx 78b!
(And even if I lost every acre in those last 12 hours, I'd only lose 0.8b of score too!)

The only way he could do it now, is if he stole over 5,000 acres again in the last few days which would increase his acre score by around 3b.

because steve rank 3 would rather be rank 2 and is bashing us with rank 1. so unless ww stops now, trans has won.

it's not really ww and trans. it's trans and mada. ww has never had this organization and had they not sucked dachi's dick. they would not be attacking effectively.

everyone says DW for the win as long as DW isn't for the win. the moment DW stands up for itself 'i don't wanna see dw win, boohoo, we got butthurt'

<3 lol

I hate to be the pessimist that I am, but can you really see WW killing Trans? And can you see DW teaming up with WW?

It seems to me that this round is going to end disappointingly with the winners being an alliance who couldn't attack by themselves.

I'd rather have seen Mada win tbh.

Based on level of contactability and troop score difference, WW will have no chance taking Trans on 1v1 unless dachi can plan magic.

I will play no part in a planned 2v1. That's a pre-set objective for me this round to try and instill a different kind of mentality in this game.

I planned a hit on Chris yesterday to stir up some 1v1 banter.

Clearly my objective is not the same as the other two alliance leaders, but what baffles me is this:

Calamity - If you are going FTW your best position is to sit out and let Trans and us kill each other. I don't get your move what so ever so please do explain.

But as I have said many times yesterday in our channel, this round is irrational and nothing can really get explained.

Rank 1 H/F alliance so up yours haters!

Couldn't agree more Toby!

And there was me foolishly thinking Max was a decent leader...but instead, 'hey, rank 3, lets both mass rank 2'. Lol.

Wait ... So after all the flaming for 2v1's your now suggesting we should have infact worked with you to tag-team Trans?

Double standards much.

On a pedantic note, it can only be double standards if it has actually happened, surely?

On a normal note, yeah true

tiger speaks not as a member of DW. tiger was speaking from a logical position should WW actually go ftw or know what that even means.

however, he fails to realize that WW was nothing but a puppet alliance, played from the beginning. strings first pulled by mada, and now (mostly still by mada) trans.

From a pure logic point of view, yes.

But in reality, with all the flaming DW had given WW, working together wasn't an option.

So ... sit in 3rd or take 2nd?

Pretty simple to see what happened. Logic or not.
