Hey all, Thank goodness this world is finally coming to a close. Just has the number of rune villages to win this world, unless any of them get recapped. I’m writing this to give some insight into how everything went down on DOTT and my own opinion on things. This will include a brief history of DOTT, a history of myself on this world, how the war went from the DOTT side of things, and some of my own opinions on the war and the world. I have a lot to say and more that I’ll add if anyone has questions. I’ll try to cover most of it, so I’ll ramble and miss stuff at the same time. To whoever got the Ragnar/ODIN letter a couple days ago, it is a load of bullshit. For those of you who haven’t, here it is: Spoiler: Ragnar Message DOTT's History Spoiler: DOTT History Ever since DOTT’s beginning, they have recruited themselves to the top of the world based on points rather than skill. Always recruiting the top players from enemy tribes. They did this with players from OBP, Rising, Dope, Yin Yang, OPEN, S~N, and more. It was not long until the entire world hated them for their techniques of not fighting wars. Eventually DM declared war on DOTT and, in short time, fell and merged their top members into DOTT. DOTT then pulled the same infamous technique on DM’s top members. The war with China was expected to be a different story. But not long into the war several China members left and China crumbled. Those members ended up joining DOTT too. Wow. Now at the point when Just joined the war, DOTT/GRRR was made up of 70 some members from over 10 different tribes. These members didn’t know each other well, trust each other fully, and their points didn’t reflect their true skill, or lack of skill. Worst of all, the one thing that could’ve united the tribe wasn’t very good, the leadership. Ragnar in particular. Ragnar is a fan of mailing players. He loves to mail everyone, especially his enemies. It was always Ragnar’s tactic to recruit the top members. Almost every single day during the China war, Ragnar would message players offering them a merge into DOTT. Ragnar was the one who carried out mass internals on active players like Mafakkar. If the public image of DOTT already seemed to have hit rock bottom, Ragnar managed to drag DOTT down further. Ragnar put the DeadMax account into $500 worth of PP debt, and when InnoGames came to collect that debt, blamed it on Phil and Max. A generous DOTT player covered that debt. For various reasons Ragnar was removed from the DeadMax account and played on the Your Daddy account before being kicked from that too. Side bar: Ironically, Ragnar mocked DOTT players for spending lots of money on PP. now look at Ragnar on W99. He has PPed himself into first place by far. He spends so much on this game that InnoGames won’t ban him. Two players got permabanned for using an illegal farming script while Ragnar only got six hours. There is screenshot proof provided by Ragnar himself of using illegal tools yet he won’t get banned cause he spends so much. Because of the shit Ragnar does, all the other tribes in the world have declared war on his tribe. He continually mails the enemy tribes trying to convince them to switch sides. But they’re all fighting ODIN because of Ragnar himself. A similar fate will probably await Ragnar on W102. My History Spoiler: My History On The World Now onto myself. I started this world as Scorpianhead. I had no desire to be a leader. Yet within 48 hours of joining I mutinied with a couple other members in the four family tribe of Fame and created the Yin Yang Dynasty. China later wrecked us. The best and biggest members of Yin Yang left to DOTT - what a surprise. I joined the anurag2009 account. After surviving for three weeks, tribeless and surrounded by the rank 1, 3, and 4 tribes, we joined Squeal. As every knows, Squeal was a large disappointment. The coordination, the operation, and the cooperation were pretty much nonexistent. Squeal gave K54 domination to Just without a fight. Once Squeal fell, I joined DOTT. I was excited at this opportunity. I thought I’d be able to play with my previous members in a tribe with solid leadership. I was vastly mistaken, and in under three weeks of joining I found myself leader of a crumbling tribe. pH Front I always wanted to ally pH and Namu. With Namu pushing one rim and pH pushing the other rim, DOTT could focus on pushing the core. Unfortunately, the DOTT leadership screwed over relations with pH. DOTT had the mentality that they didn’t need allies, but were always willing to scrap their own active smaller members for members from other tribes. While attempting to negotiate a merger with pH, DOTT stole some pH members. I don’t follow the logic on DOTT’s side there, and I understand why pH joined Just’s side. When asked mid-war if pH would like to switch sides to join DOTT, it was a unanimous no. Summing up the pH-DOTT relations, a pH member said, "I would rather crap in my hands and then clap in front of my face than do any sort of a deal with DOTT.”. The pH War was incredibly pathetic to say the least. I never realized how shitty of a tribe Phalos was. Members from Phalos didn’t have watchtowers, didn’t know how to use scripts or dynamic groups, and didn’t know how to tag incomings. We merged Phalos into DOTT/GRRR, leaving no active members behind. Ironically, it would’ve been better to follow DOTT’s strategy with inviting the top members. Almost every single Phalos member quit after having more than 0 incomings. pH sliced through us like melted butter, ate through us like a four-year-old with a cookie jar, and beat us to a pulp. It was easier for pH than it is for Ragnar to get off a ban. A somewhat ordered list of the members pH went through: FluffyButDangerous Sebyyy23 Teenagerbvs Rawnblade22 Gevalia Lord Rossi Lateralus1942 CELever ShootToKill104 Legionnaire JJ aep16 Kale2009 Lord Tempest Lord Pracore D3thDealer HobbesIV - Defended poorly and quit shortly after the landing time Freakman08 Lord Galerand banu14078323 Bosqz89 Socialmisfit88 Bearded Noobs United Cab1229 Xbl@de Looking back on it, they might not have known how to use the tribal forum either. MBright told me, “We attacked Hobbes with hopes of having an actual fight, but were once again disappointed. So we push onwards to your larger players who will hopefully be more of a challenge.”. Ironically, hechihero666 left to join pH. I know he didn’t like it in DOTT, but part of me wonders if pH wanted to avoid that fight. What I've heard from a Just player is that pH was scared of Sriram s, so Just. opped him because pH couldn't do it or needed the help. What can I say about pH as an enemy? Not much. I cannot really comment on pH’s skill. They did have some nice coordination moments: Mountainbetweenus’ trains were very nicely timed and mbright and trelawnys army did some nice nuke timing too. Yet no one put up a fight against pH so I can’t really say how skilled they were. I do know blackdeja walled pH a week ago. But did pH actually try? Or did they expect it to be like all the other times? Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying pH is lacking in skill, I’m saying that they did not need to use skill to get where they are today. It was that easy for them. Side bar: I apologize to MBright for my consistent - and probably annoying - begging to switch sides. I enjoyed our conversations, not sure if you can say the same. JUST Front Some parts are omitted to go with the SYUA section DOTT’s front with Just? That never existed. Well kind of, but we never had an active front with Just. In the early days of the war, Kiriyami made up the core of DOTT’s frontline. DOTT had stacked Kiriyami to the max and Just nukes were bouncing off. After massacring Squeal out of K54, Just piled the nukes on Kiriyami. But Kiriyami left without a word. I don’t really know why because he had sitters almost all the time. Just nobled several villages and finished off the rest shortly after. The other former-VIK players left soon after, but this time they gave us sits. Sidebar: The VIK players went off to W100 but when they realized they couldn’t PP themselves they went to W101. At the same time Psychedelic Moose was opped and all four coplayers quit. Noobs United had quit, the new player we put on that account quit too. Vasto and dsfef were holding their ground pretty well. Jonezee slowly crumbled under the sheer amount of nukes thrown at him. Next black phantom and in the fog were opped (both had quit and we had sits). Neither player sitting that account that day defended and we lost 70 some villages. After cleaning up the remains of the above players, invisible, and dannyrules there was a lull. The next op hit the first active players we had yet. I was pretty pumped for having a front line. I admit that we could’ve stacked Dsfef and Vasto better, but neither of them tried. There were no support requests. Of the 111 villages dsfef lost, he recapped 2. ( of those villages were lost after the two recaps). I assume dsfef quit shortly before the op landed. Vasto lost everything without a word. Throughout the month before this several players backline players quit, porgchamp, got screwed by merchants, soulofsteel8, Orion Rising, sleep deprived, Fullcontact, AceZSpades, and xbc1x. We got sits from some, Not from others. DeadMax really fucked us over though. We never sleep had been using the account for holding the front but then after about a month DeadMax pulled the sit and hit delete as an op was coming. That day was a bad day in the world of DOTT, losing the most villages in any day of the war. After cleaning up remaining frontal villages, JUST turned to focus on the Rank 1 player, We Never Sleep. Throwing probably over a thousand nukes at him, Just broke through. We Never Sleep could’ve recapped most of the villages but he quit 36 hours before the op. Sidebar: We Never Sleep had been running that account solo for two months prior to quitting. He was on at any hour of the day. He burnt out completely and unlike any other member who quit, I do not blame him for not sticking around. Sometime in this entire mess, Namu finally joined the war. But kinda late. They held a referendum and unanimously agreed to fighting alongside DOTT, but took another couple weeks to do so. Overall, it was the same as mentioned about the pH front. No careful coordination was required to win this. I know several of JUST’s members are very skilled, but it didn’t show much through this war. Some members were precise and coordinated, but the vast majority of JUST just bulldozed through with enough nukes to finally take the villages. The ops were well done, but as per the individual timing for players, not so much. SYUA Front SYUA had it easy. Starting off as BGO, I wanted to ally them as I knew how badly Squeal sucked. But whether they were always friends with Just or DOTT just didn’t want them like they didn’t want anybody, I don’t know. SYUA lived in the land of nice hunting ground, AKA inactive heaven. First with Wastelandprince and Yorgolb, then BigMist, king of Persia1, and more recently Your Daddy, Fullcontact, and northern inactive villages. I have never been impressed with any SYUA member. Noever, vbrother, gotsteam, hesy, s489, Baconi, and the rest were always terrible with snipes, recaps, and attacking. I do give Sneeke credit though. Successfully walling DOTT twice, with on-the-second recaps, that was nice to see. Whether they are noobs on the right side of the war, or didn't need to demonstrate any effort, I don't know. Why didn't DOTT go on the offensive or ever push back? If you are asking that then you must have missed the ops. I don’t blame you though, they weren’t very noticeable. The first op was on Sneeke and livedragon: we got walled on Sneeke and recapped on livedragon. Second op we tried was at Diamond.Blade when he left. That failed. We did another one on Sneeke and from the nuke reports we would’ve broken through but only half the nukes were launched (players were quitting and not launching). I kept trying to organize ops on pH but the continual players quitting and the ground continually being lost made it almost pointless. Not to mention every single K35 player only had three nukes. Over on the Namu front we tried twice but the participation was lacking both times. Any conquers we made were recapped because of the lack of support. This is not to say we never had any success. When bane nobled four deathstars, we nuked it till they were gone. When Team Player nobles a cluster in AceZSpades, we nukes that till it was gone. But the sheer number of inactives and quits left it hard to run an op, and impossible for a successful one. The War of Internals I personally like to believe that we beat JUST at their own war. Since the beginning of the war, JUST, SYUA, and pH have conquered less DOTT villages than DOTT has themselves. Side 1: Tribes: JUST., JUST2., SYUA, pH Side 2: Tribes: DOTT, GRRR, Namu Timeframe: March 25 to Present Total conquers: Total conquers against opposite side: Side 1: 3,373 Side 2: 731 Difference: 2,642 Side 1: Tribes: DOTT, GRRR, Namu Side 2: Tribes: DOTT, GRRR, Namu Timeframe: March 25 to Present Total conquers against opposite side: Side 1: 3,493 Side 2: 3,493 Difference: 0 Was the war over for DOTT when it began? A question I keep asking myself is, did I lose the war for DOTT or did I prolong the loss? I am not a great leader. I took way to long on most internals. I couldn't get prestacks done or organize successful ops. Is that on me, or on my members? Was the war at the end of April, or under my leadership? I no longer have the mail from Stunz, but I recall him saying back in April that the world was over and it would be about two months until Just finally one. He was pretty much dead on with that prediction. Conclusion I am saying W98 was a joke and I think most of you would agree with me. a. The majority of the tribes and leaders were pathetic, and all the wars were pathetic. b. There was no talent or skill required to beat DOTT. Just a couple nukes and you've taken the village. c. This was a world of internals. Most of the accounts in the top 100 are mostly fed from internals. I have been eagerly awaiting the end of this world for a couple months now, but I never go down without a fight. I will continue fighting until the 14 days of holding the runes are over. I hope this post gave a bit of insight into the war from the DOTT side of things. Now I’m done. You can all proceed to ripping DOTT, my members, and myself apart, because that’s what people on the externals do.
