Actually, qoos, hrgos' answers make perfect sense. Either you are too thick to understand them, or you don't want to.
1. In reference to the TW - E=MC2 war... well you have to remember that E=MC2 were fighting not only TW, but also HAWKS at the same time. And perhaps, had you taken the time to look for some background knowledge, you would have noticed that E=MC2 has also been flamed for being a poor tribe many times in the past. Comparing a bad tribe to a bad tribe doesn't show that one of them is good.
Let's look at the reasons TW has been called a bad tribe: early on in the world, their players were humiliated by Monsignor
. This is a big reason they are still seen as noobs to this day. They reformed their tribe as The Wraith Family, and took in a lot of players in the region. Cricman helped to further diminish the respect TWF. was given due to his ridiculously unintelligent posts on the external forums. TW merged with SWAG F., and allied HAWKS F. (which was, in my opinion, their best route to expansion). That left them with only one way to noble - North, into E=MC2 territory. They have been flamed, not for nobling barbs, but for the regularity with which they noble them, and their seemingly unwillingness to war other tribes. The only war I can actually remember them being a part of is the war with E=MC2. The rest has been cleaning their continents of smaller tribes, and merging. TW has cut their players off from expansion (barring long-range nobling) with the diplomacy they chose. In my opinion, this reflects poorly on the leadership - and what reflects poorly on the leadership reflects poorly on the tribe in general.
2. @ hrgos
our tribes have around the same average points per village, this means that we have around the same number of 1-3k villages.
Your conclusion cannot be reached from those facts alone. It could just mean that the East have less people that max out villages. I hope this is clear enough for you, because I have a tendency to ramble on and repeat the same thing many times if I have to explain points I see as obvious. I'm not alluding to either side having more/less 1-3k point villages, simply stating that your conclusion is inaccurate given your evidence. If you would like to look through long lists of villages, go ahead. Otherwise, everyone should stop arguing a point that has no real value.
and tell me what are you going to do with a 1-3K barb. attack me LOL with what inside. so yes they are useless.
This is also inaccurate in my opinion. A small village located in the middle of your enemies' territory can be very valuable indeed. Naturally, your enemies will not want you to have a village so close to them, where they will not be able to easily react to your attacks. So they will attack it. If you stack it, your enemy will waste lots of offense, while you suffer relatively few defensive casualties. It kills lots of their troops, making it rather useful.
EDIT: No one can attack you with a barb. If they are attacking you, it is no longer a barb.
3. I still cannot understand what you are trying to ask qoos. :icon_redface:
4. Reputation means a lot in this game. And LEGION has a good reputation, as do a lot of their players. I can't see any tribe currently better than them, and as they are ranked #1 (with a fairly sizable lead I might add...) it is up to you to prove that they are not great, not up to them to prove their greatness.
