big thumbs up to steve_god for putting everything together.. and thanks to the people that participated, was fun for the 2 attacks it lasted! longer than some resistances
i have to agree with u lucky, it did last longer than most resistances, how ever the way the attacks were planned it seems like u all were going for land, u should of been trying to kill us, as it was u all "had" a troops adv over us. BL and better luck next time
LOL!
None of the attacks this weekend were for land, they were ALL planned for kills.

If you thought we were going for land and that pulled the defence (which in the main it looked like it did) then our plan worked, and you were fooled
(There were a few that sent wrong mobs to wrong targets in the first wave, but it's bound to happen when we gave minimal notice to reduce leaks)

Unfortunately, our calculated troop advantage only works if we can actually get all Members from all those alliances involved.
Even though we went for kills, pulling defence elsewhere so that our real had less lethal defence than it could have, we still lost. Dealing plenty of damage in the process, but we lost.


I want to give a big thumbs up to the Leaders and representatives from Bribemania II, A Nag Ram, The Dude Abides, Pee-wee's Playhouse and Empire. While it may have been a standing joke that anything we get from PW and Emp was a bonus, you still showed willing and helped out where you could. To BM2, ANR, TDA, it was a shame that combined we are all a bit 'too' FTF, and could never quite gather enough of our players online collectively to do enough damage to tip the balance.

The Resistance isn't dead by any means... but any future co-ordination will be mainly around rushes, and probably bounty hunting () - we just don't have the involvement from 'enough' players to make it happen properly.

Indeed, the Resistance is pretty much over as an organisation that aims to bring down rank 1 - That isn't possible: They're the only 100% active and contactable alliance in the game, vs even 4 FTF alliances with little motivation and little contactability, it has always been a case of pissing in the wind.

My ideal scenario would be for kiwi to disband, and to allow the FTF alliances to fight it out - You guys are like olympic swimmers taking part in the paralympics at the moment - Your win isn't going to go down in anyone's memory. I'd personally enjoy the round a lot more being able to fight it out with ranks 2-8 without having to worry about our success (or the success of Ana/TDA/BM) as an alliance putting us in range of Kiwi.

That isn't going to happen, the win is all that matters to them (even when that win is meaningless this round), but if Kiwi accepted they're a third wheel this round that'd be a good thing for the rest of the round imo.

Controversial, but that's how I feel - I have disliked there being 4-5 decent FTF alliances, of similar size, contactability and activity, and a single FTW in the mix. Its not a combination I think works well in the slightest. If the FTF alliances now war, which I'm sure they will - the winning alliance is just going to find themselves gifting land to rank 1. I know for me, in Combo, we'll definitely be limiting our score to starve kiwi of any action, but that in turn means we see less action.

Every round theres always 1 alliance more contactable, more active and attacks like crazy, they end up winning the round, we just done it when everyone else decided not too.

and DA about ur comment "Your win isn't going to go down in anyone's memory." well i dont care what others do/think/put down in there memory, it will go down in my memory and thats all that matters.

Godsend, I'm not slating kiwi, in fact I sympathise that you guys have played FTW in a round when nobody else has.

You can't say "every round there's one alliance more contactable, more active" - Because usually there's an alliance even semi-FTW. This round there are no other FTW alliances, you guys are literally the only people who care about winning.

I'm just voicing my opinion here, I think the rest of this round would be better with 4-8 FTF alliances of similar calibre fighting things out between themselves, than a bunch of FTF alliances and an over-bearing FTW alliance putting a downer on things. That's just my feeling.

I'd feel similar seeing Michael Phelps being put in a race with a bunch of people who don't like water.

Tbh, you could easily split Kiwifruit into two allies of 10 (Yellow Kiwifruit & Green Kiwifruit), and would still win.

We won't be disbanding and we won't be allowing a FTF alliance to win. We were the only ones to bother going FTW and for that i'm not gonna just let other alliances have the win to be different. I am sure my alliance feels the same!

Well done SG for organising something. It is never easy, even with FTW alliances. So to give it ago with FTF alliances was brilliant. Well done.

tbh, now they have won, they can play FTF, without the super activity/contactability, and so now every1 can have a fun relaxing round

"two allies of 10" - and how would that happen while maintaining only players 10 in each ally?

If you're going to try and troll, at least do it properly mate

My biggest problem with Kiwi is that they're a whole, kiwi, at present, but their alliance pic clearly shows a split kiwi. This is misleading.

That was really witty DA, I think you should take that kind of material on the road.
