Me lol's at seth89 failing to remember how DA recruited their way to nr 1.
Me lol's at seth89 who don't seem to remember DA couldn't win against the "old" AXE who only had a handful active members.
There isn't a Tribe here that hasn't mad it this far without merging. But unlike most Tribes DA haven't merged due to being on the ropes. I remember my first love 'GODLY' I always said since day one DA needed to be a targeted, slow dense growth worried me. I thought it would be impossible to break them down, nothing seems to have changed. So TBH, whatever people think, never moan about Tribe ethos that was set out from day one and stuck to.
How you define being on the ropes is another matter. I always salute the players that have honestly made it this far and merging is part of the game even you guys have done it, AXE has tried to be the new TATS, badged as an aggresive Tribe with DAD at the helm. Now the way I see it was DAD had three mergers on the cards, the main two were tH and AXE. AXE hold the center and DAD council could take them over. After this the movement was towards tH was always on the cards and a great master stroke TBH, DAD got both tribe to merge with them We all knew the tapping rumours of Exile active players and the rumors of !WAR! running down so you could also get those active players, so never talk to me about merging back to the top. I have seen AXE do that in every form.
Come Ali, I wait your reply Sil
