i guess i am the lesser of two evils.
Gammlen: I've been reading your posts on VVVk/TNE versus Sci(RON). You are carrying on about a very dated war which I do understand is something everyone around here likes to do. (It kinda makes for dull and boring reading most of the time). Basically I just thought I might point out that 90% of all those players in that war returned or have now left and joined VVV.
I fail to see how you can claim any glory about that as the players involved found Sci to be a complete failure to them and hence bailed to better and brighter pastures. That cannot in anyway be considered a victory for Sci, only a pathetic failure from Sci to lose a whole branch of their tribes' family.
VVV has been a little slow with the current stats that can be seen, though Sci IS a very long way behind VVV if you choose to count these old battles as we swallowed a huge chunk back then.
The failure is not on SCI IMHO, the failure is on those players who changed sides for whatever reason to justify their actions. Bailing to a better and brighter pastures is one way of looking at it. Another way could be to have you wonder if they may again bail when the chips are down. As one of your top fighters has said over the summer the war is still early and a lot can happen over the next 2 to 4 years (not sure if my back of the envelope calculation is correct but given the magnitude of the number of villages involved I am likely close).
I am not sure that this is really the continuation of that war but if you believe it is then fine, maybe I can find a way to adjust my Db to account for those lost villages - actually there is a way but the question is do I really want to take the time to do that. So, if I adjust my Db do I include just the villages you took or do you insist that I also include the villages from players that jumped ship?
Gday Daft how are you today I see that you have replied to my post and I wonder what you mean by Db? is it Data base? Anyway I wouldn't have included it myself but was just pointing it out to Gammlen as he was boasting about it. He was using it as ammunition to try and win an argument and I wanted to point out to him how his whole idea on it was flawed.
Slowly but surely more and more of my VVV companions are waking from their slumber (myself included). This war will soon become more exciting and less one sided
i think this is a good quote i found on a players profile
"In Germany they first came for the Communists,
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Communist.
Then they came for the Jews,
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Jew.
Then they came for the trade unionists,
and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Catholics,
and I didn't speak up because I was a Protestant.
Then they came for me —
and by that time no one was left to speak up." ~~Pastor Martin Niemöller
maybe on-topic a bit?
