There is a great difference between getting a tribe to a high rank and actually maintaining that rank.
If i wanted to i could boost !UN! into 2nd maybe even 1st right now with some recruits i have lined up,
But due to their position it would not be beneficial thus i choose life span over one achievement,
whereas good dukes settle for deferred gratification, fail dukes live by carpe diem and wish for immediate gratification
P.S : in the times i played on world 8-13 my tribes managed to hold their position for longer than 6-7 months (after i leaved due to real life problems tribes failed as well .) , in world 40 lost to world rank 2 tribe and merged into them tho . not a apporpiate place to speak about anywayz .
Oh yay lets talk about past worlds,
well from worlds 1-7 i didn't lead tribes but sat in a diplomacy seat each tribe i was in was top 5ish.
the later worlds
i stepped up and lead my first tribe on w23 which failed but i came back on w34 and stepped up my game decided to learn how to be a good leader and now this is my most successful world in which i have used all my experience to keep UN where it is.
No matter what rank your tribe is do not get cocky and do not get intimidated by others.
You can fake some swagger in order to make yourselves look better but deep down know you are not untouchable.
Even know you seem to think flame is untouchable which i will be the first to say i highly doubt
It's funny how the leaders of the top tribes are always the Failminator. :lol:
