Rhino-x, not just a member of SL but a Duke, left nearly 6,000 troops out of his 12,355 point village. Even though he was able to dodge all but 1 of my clearing attacks, he still got pwned due to the fact that the other clearing attacks had lowered his Wall so much.
I wanted to take that village! But i'm happy that you took it then at least
1. "Few" alright, go ahead, you have 500+ members, lets see this list of the few that are successful against T:V. Start naming names...
2. It isn't something that can be disagreed on. It wasn't an opinion. I stated that by all independantly verifiable measures SL players play simcity. Given your tribe's woeful attacker rating, I don't think that is disputable. As for being useless, I think that it is up to SL players to judge how helpful their teamates are. I've seen how helpful SL are to their players. I've seen the support requests. I've also seen dozens of players simply fall apart.
3. Hey look the old "T:V only wins because it recruits" arguement. We've already shown that SL systematically recruits more than TW or T:V ever did. We've already been over all of that. Further, people don't get let into T:V just because they want to and they don't want to lose villages. While SL practices this (see all of th players that ended up running to T.I.S), T:V does not. Isn't it strange that once players end up in T:V they end up excelling and doing really well? Or hey look, the number of original TW players still at the top of T:V's roster is still very high.
Look at me: When i joined T:V, i had to approved first (account sit) by a experienced T:V player, who said my villages were good, but that i needed more offensive. I joined, and my points are about doubled in 4 months (playing a year now)
