Indeed.

To be fair there is a few factors one needs to consider when looking at this round as a one alliance round;

1) Players: Simply put max/elderveld, Lukeyy/No-Dachi and I all seemed to be fighting over the same core, and none of us ended up with exactly what we wanted.

2) Elitism: As last round got closer and closer to ending, It became more and more apparent that n0c0ntr0ls team was going to be The real threat, to put it simply players who had been confirmed for months suddenly jumped up and told me they were playing elsewhere.

3) Me: I feel that with such a strong team in HW, they did stand the best chance of winning, However a strong coordinated resistance between the other 3 allies could have stopped them, My alliance stalled day one when I Injured my knee and have since been so drugged up I am actually playing with positive h/f :O.

4) Boobs: Because boobs are always relevant.

To be honest, Attitude at round start had a lineup that any FTW leader would be pleased with. It was just unfortunate that more than a few members, myself among them, were unable to properly commit during the crucial stage of the round due to easter, exams etc etc

Agreed 110%

Although with our route set up and HW general awesomeness, we prob still would have lost.

But i cant understand the confusion in this thread?? We did got FTW, we got beat quite convincingly (to put it nicely) and now we are just having fun.

PS Congratz HW, you were pretty awesome

That's exactly what I've done - Though I will make whatever arguments I like, with or without the knowledge of whats happening. You're mistaken if you perceive that as willful ignorance I simply weren't here. In any case I've lost interest in this thread and indeed this round, even as an observer - there's not enough happening for things to be even remotely interesting and as ever I can't comment without hostility from a select few very rude, very arrogant individuals.

You would have to sit on irc and play for rounds and rounds before you could be trusted.
Er, pardon?

Last round, you may want to check who was in rank 1.

I think he meant "Whoever said the FTW big allys DON'T give other people chances ect.."

Otherwise, that sentence makes no sense.. And would be incredibly false anyway.

The whole lot does make sense - He is implying that only people that can be trusted are let into high ranking alliances.

I meant "ignorant" in the context of it being used as a derogatory, which generally implies a rejection of what isn't know, or a laziness in not knowing.

Edited initial post to be more clear

Again to be clear this thread wasn't created with the intention of trolling rank 1 or inviting insults that my knowledge of events during rank 1 is lacking, but to prompt some debate on FTW/FTF alliances, which I'm pleased it has.

Quite frankly I can't see this as an empty victory, more than once Attitude had a land lead (and more importantly Lukey called me a n00b, that makes every acre of land, every dead troop that much sweeter). They had a troop lead for a great amount of time too. They certainly were better stealers than us in the flak wars. If they hadn't started a flak war on us they would have most likely had a decent land lead on us by saturday. They didn't play badly at all and in another round I think they would have won, Dachi is an excellent leader.

As for all this business of FTW and FTF does it really matter? Play how you want to play, I don't see why it should leave labels. And frankly, if you are refreshing over 6 hours a day and are contactable, you are playing in a FTW manner no matter what you say.

n0c0 has made his daily contribution of idiocy, so we can all breath a sigh of relief.

I called you a noob last round for not understanding your route - I felt that a pretty valid reason to do so. Lukey is a nutcase as well, so I wouldn't listen to anything he says.

I'd have to strongly disagree with this..

You spend around 8.63 hour(s) a day playing Bushtarion.

This is my incredibly inactive round.. and solo..

Though, if anyone else remembers, there's an entire troll thread with folks debating the meaning of "FTW" or "FTF"

Either you want to win, or you don't, but in the end, almost any alliance will say "lets give it a go" if you give them enough of a chance to take it.

1 5420 The Bloody Nine Evil Heart Collectors dachi

That was rank one,im 99.9% sure hes not an unkown Dax?

Only people that have a name for themselfs are let into big ftw allys,this is 100% true.

Shields are very simple. They don't die and they soak up the damage (depending on your ratio). Simple as.
