What is this rumor I hear that TEA is having difficulty against a 13 man pssst! tribe.

Wow it's almost like nobody expected that a 13 man tribe would lose against the Rank 1!
Thanks for the insightful commentary.

My trustworthy sources from TEA, told me that they've lost more than 70% of their noble trains against PSSST!
Which is pretty damn good for a tribe of 13 players. I guess we can say something positive about PSSST!'s leadership. They know what they are doing. Then I look at who's running the tribe, happens to be Atmos... who I already have respect for :D

TEA planned all of this really good, I respect them very much. Their leader is smart and knows how to break something, but they underestimated PSST! a bit. They were quite lucky with some factors in their strategy and intel they had, made it quite easy. What so ever, they lost quite a lot of nobles and some nuke so now we will see if they keep it going and if PSST! is capable to do something

Tea is doing well and against jagers too...its intersting to see how this will end..it seem they have a very good teamable group of players

Look at PSSST!'s roster its stacked and having Atmos is a bonus. And by the looks of it Jager is getting destroyed by TEA as well.

What's funny is how pssst is doing better vs tea than jager is.. lols.

I will speak on behalf of PSSST!,

My members have fought hard and will continue to do so. TEA has done a great job with coordinating antisnipes/pre nukes, which made it difficult for us to defend. There were major losses from both sides, but at the end of the day we had great enjoyment of playing this TW game. We will continue to play, defend, and attack.

Maelyss who provided intel to TEA with regards to our defenses, stacking, and coordination was quite a hindrance to our game plan. Even though we had that set back, we strive to work hard and to continue to play our best. Yes there is only 12 or 13 of us, and going against the #1 tribe with 40 members.. doesn't scare us :)

7 caps between 5:00 and 9:50 is a nice achievement, but there are few factors heavily benefiting TEA in this encounter

1. Intel

Player Maelyss (previously in PSSST!) has been granted membership in TEA in exchange for information and help in attacking his fellow tribe mates. TEA knew exactly where and who to attack.




2. Element of surprise

TEA have had a huge benefit of the surprise attack. Even if has PSSST! anticipated that TEA would finally cross the border they could not have guessed when exactly would that happen.

3. Front advantage

After PSSST! recruited in K53 they have increased their front line in huge favour of TEA.
soCivil has become an obvious target basically surrounded by TEA members and it has been wrecked.
Also TEA had more villages situated on the front line between K44 and K54. It meant a lot of semi short range nukes that could be sent against BumbleBee.

4. Size

Lets have a look at this table:



TEA is 4 times larger dominating PSSST! in ever possible statistic.


Conclusion:

It appeaser TEA has planned this attack for some time. They have recruited a spy that has been promised membership in exchange for backstabbing his old tribe. The strategy might be effective short term giving TEA great advantage in this op but it may back fire in coming months.
TEA and PSSST! had a border agreement or NAP of some sort. TEA has violated that nap by recruiting a spy with intent to use him in direct attack. After that shady move other tribes will have really hard time trusting TEA.
We might be having a ranked 1 tribe that is starting to be disliked by W90 and portrayed as the public enemy no 1.
But i guess that is the fate of most leading tribes.

Wishing PSSST! all the best in coming days, you did well and those 7 caps against you are definitely not a measure of great success by TEA, it is rather a minimum they should have capped.

That's pretty disappointing if true (and it's hard to see how it's not).

If there's one thing that diminishes an otherwise excellent strategy game more than anything else, it's the petty advantage some folk seek to gain by avoiding strategy and intelligent play: By spying rather than deducing rivals' goals, by backstabbing rather than fighting head to head, by lying and deceiving - playing the people instead of playing the game.

It's inevitable of course, and those who do so will say that it's a "smart" way to play, but it's still disappointing.

We didn't plan all that much. You guys recruited into continent 53. Of course we were going to be PSSST! off. Then BumbleBee came to us looking to be recruited. Maelyss team are nice and we've been chatting for some time. After they saw multiple (yes, that's plural) people wanting to leave the Atmos ship they said they would give TEA a shot and that was that. They only did what BumbleBee said would do to them in the first place. Size, front etc etc were all controllable factors that you had at your disposal. It looks like you're blaming us for being a better equipped and a better prepared tribe. A few weeks ago you would have ruled out the size advantage also. 'TEA and PSSST! had a border agreement or NAP of some sort.' What was it? It's completely made up and besides, you violated that non-existent border agreement when you recruited on our rim. Pathetic accusations. The PSSST!, Jager, WET new formed coalition is larger than TEA too. We have no diplomacy. I disagree with just about everything you said. So many inaccuracies.

lmao. Tribes don't generally end a NAP if they aren't planning to attack. There's obviously no attacks yet, because the agreed 24hour period isn't up. You know even less than I thought :D

Fun times ahead.

Yes, it just shows that I am completely correct in what I'm saying. What's your point? This just enhances my argument. I quite like how everything I mentioned last week has been addressed since and worked out quite well :) Too bad you're missing out out this weeks edition, it's a real treat.

Pathetic.....of course good for TEA, but not a player I would liked to have in the tribe, when will he turn again?

Completely and utterly false. He was not granted membership into TEA just because information was exchanged. As Al already said, we have been talking to the Maelyss guys for a while now. It is not our fault that Atmospherefc1 (Oh here he goes again, talking about Ronnie) created a fragmented tribe as a result of his decisions.

2. Element of surprise

TEA have had a huge benefit of the surprise attack. Even if has PSSST! anticipated that TEA would finally cross the border they could not have guessed when exactly would that happen.
How on earth was this a surprise attack? PSSST! recruited literally inside our members in K53. What did they expect to happen? We would greet them with a freshly baked pie and a welcome basket? You just don't recruit inside another tribe, especially without any communication.


TEA and PSSST! had a border agreement or NAP of some sort. TEA has violated that nap by recruiting a spy with intent to use him in direct attack.
And this border agreement/NAP was signed by Atmsopherefc1, Al, Santa Claus and The Tooth Fairy. Correct?
