Prometheus, Being a staff member maybe you should look more into fixing this game and getting it back to where it once was and when there required a slight bit of skill not 24/7 activity. This world has followed a set plan that turtle and Us laid out when our alliance was formed , long before anyone knew who was who are what tribes were "good". After 72 worlds this game always follows A pattern and players who have been around enuff are able to forsee alot of things and stay a few steps ahead. Blame TW for turning this game into the bore fest it is now. There is a reason All the former Vet players are long gone. The main goal of Cruel and Turtle's Alliance was and always has been to end this pay to win world as fast as possible. For a good reason. These pay to win worlds and all the "updates" that require money to be a top ranked player has ruined this game we all used to like to play. All these other tribes would have and tried to do the same thing we have with bartering for merges and such so don't act like we are the ones ruining this game. OUr tribes have always kept great communication and direction, but we have also both worked as two separate tribes working to a common goal. Until recent there has never been much of a joint effort to take out tribes like most claim. Turtle and Us have fought our own wars early on and not relied on the other unless it was a dire situation, that has only occurred a few times early on. Other than that we both have fought and won the wars we needed to alone and towards a common goal. Like any other world the major wars and fights need to happen early on ,as they were. We both removed potential threats before they became problems. You claim 800 was a hug fest? We fought long and hard and it got to the point that we would be stupid to not take in the guys who deserved to e here in the end. Sure we could have fought on and ended it but what is the benefit and gain? Good active players are a rare breed in TW and every one of the 800 guys we recruited have proven many times over that they deserve to be here and are not afraid to fight to the end if needed.
Most are correct tho , most players want to end this world and retire from TW , the game has changed way to much at least for the old school guys, the new players are clueless to the epic fights that once was. If our alliance is able to end this world I hope the one thing that stands out and is a lesson to other tribes and worlds is that Honor and Trust go along way. There isn't many worlds that I have played that didn't end in back stabbing and double crossing and Turtle and Us have proven that players and tribes who stay loyal to one another and stick to a set gameplan can overcome most anything.
These "fights" and "Wars" you speak of were fun at one time but TW has changed the game now and noone wants to sit in front of a pc 24/7 and burn them self's out fighting stalemate battles. Skills that once were useful have gone to having 3-4 co-players and money to burn to win these fights. You claim that being bored has made most quit.. I would argue that, as this is normally just a excuse people use when they come under massive attacks and can't sit online 24/7 or they realize that they have been outplayed and the fight is won before it starts so they use the "game is boring" excuse.
One of my favorite quotes ..
"Victorious warriors win first and then go to war, while defeated warriors go to war first and then seek to win." Sun Tzu
Cruel and Turtle have worked very close with each other from the first few days into this world and most everything that has happened has all been part of the strategy and plans we laid out early on. Our plans were to win this world and end it as fast as possible and to remain loyal and true to our alliance. Most seem to know more than the facts but our plans were always the same. We never had a set "merge" planned there were two outcomes to how we wanted to end it. Once all other threats were removed Turtle and us would decide how things ended by letting the members decide if we wanted to have a end game war between us or to merge and get things over with. So you may think what you want but this world will end the way the majority of our two tribes decide. So call it boring or what every you want this is how the game has changed and this is how you win worlds. Like I said before there isn't very many players that I know of you enjoy long drawn out time consuming fights that take up valuable time that could be spend doing more important things in life. After all this is a game we all used to play for fun. For most of the players left the "fun" part of the game comes with achieving the goals we all have worked so hard for.
Our goals have never changed we are here to win .
in case you never seen our tribe motto....here it is..."We play to win, not survive"
