Welcome to the Artemis Examiner. This week I bring interviews from forum legend Colpo and Anger? Family leader Sith Rage. Also included are updates into some of the lesser known wars including ~RAID~ vs ??? and NOB!! vs TBE. Whilst a normal newspaper is organized into sections containing news of decreasing importance from Headlines to Celebrity News to Comics to Sports, mine is a little different. It'll start out with the Sports Section (Stats), followed by the Comics (maps). Then it'll go into the Celebrity News (interviews), followed by the Headlines (war info). Without further ado, here is the Artemis Examiner.

[SPOIL]To start off this week's interviews, please welcome Colpo. Unfortunately, he will be unable to respond to any commentary, due to a small disagreement with the mods. Colpo also wanted it to be known that he too is fighting -V-, stats posted above.
[spoil][4/11/2010 7:45:36 PM] 2004 Artemis says: what account are you on again?
[4/11/2010 7:45:41 PM] colpotastic says: Homcgra
[4/11/2010 7:45:44 PM] 2004 Artemis says: k
[4/11/2010 7:46:08 PM] 2004 Artemis says: so you can represent NMS then?

[4/11/2010 7:46:36 PM] colpotastic says: To an extent
[4/11/2010 7:47:52 PM] 2004 Artemis says: so, you guys in NMS are pretty quiet on the forums, what's going on over there?
[4/11/2010 7:49:35 PM] colpotastic says: Well, I'm nobling off some naughty -V- vills myself, but the rest of NMS seems content to clean up their continents; I hear several of my tribemates recently launched on Drakincorin, since he was kicked from TDE
[4/11/2010 7:50:10 PM] colpotastic says: Kind of stuck in a hard place, with both of NMS' borders being entirely consisting of TDE and MASK
[4/11/2010 7:51:31 PM] 2004 Artemis says: You're fairly separated from the rest of your tribe. That must make it hard to work together.
[4/11/2010 7:52:46 PM] colpotastic says: In complete honesty, I have zero contact with anyone in my tribe when it comes to actual playing, beyond the odd sit if I or my co-player can't be around for whatever it is that needs to be done. I joined NMS more as a joke, as Herb and I always said that we wished we had started closer to each other so we could be in the same tribe.
[4/11/2010 7:53:15 PM] colpotastic says: The Homcgra account has not received a single troop of support from any player or tribe since I took over the account. ;)
[4/11/2010 7:53:26 PM] 2004 Artemis says: which was when?
[4/11/2010 7:53:42 PM] colpotastic says: Hmmm.... if memory serves correct, it was about the start of March
[4/11/2010 7:54:58 PM] 2004 Artemis says: you've been through a few different tribes, which was your favorite?
[4/11/2010 7:55:22 PM] colpotastic says: Without a doubt, NOB :)
[4/11/2010 7:55:32 PM] 2004 Artemis says: of course
:p
[4/11/2010 7:56:16 PM] 2004 Artemis says: nowhere else could you probably find such a multitude of... humor ...for lack of a better word

[4/11/2010 7:56:50 PM] colpotastic says: Humour is a good synonym, I think :D
[4/11/2010 7:57:22 PM] 2004 Artemis says: you also spent a bit of time in MASK, didn't you?
[4/11/2010 7:57:43 PM] colpotastic says: Yeah, I spent a few days there before they asked me to leave to avoid starting a war between MASK and -V-
[4/11/2010 7:58:37 PM] 2004 Artemis says: so what's your opinion of them as a tribe? are they the next "big thing" or will follow in the steps of many other "elite" tribes that have failed on w39?
[4/11/2010 8:00:29 PM] colpotastic says: Well, the day they were 'created', I was the first one to say that they were bound to fail for being the same ol' same ol' as SIKE and LOST before them. I'm glad to see my prediction came to pass. While there a few who are talented players, those who do know how to play the game are backed up by a number of less-than-stellar players. The community is nice, but I don't see them staying around on the world for much longer, looking at how the TDE/MASK war has progressed so far.
[4/11/2010 8:01:14 PM] colpotastic says: As for being an 'elite' tribe, I've been saying since day one that MASK aren't anything close to an elite tribe. It goes back to that line about being the same ol' same ol' for that part of the world, and I've yet to be proven wrong on that.
[4/11/2010 8:03:17 PM] 2004 Artemis says: no doubt they'll end up being recruited yet again once MASK fully dissolves
[4/11/2010 8:03:28 PM] colpotastic says: Almost assuredly
[4/11/2010 8:03:43 PM] 2004 Artemis says: anything else you'd like the world to know your opinion on?
[4/11/2010 8:05:10 PM] colpotastic says: Yeah; why can't -V- use pnp? Let's disregard that they're losing a war against ~RAID~ and Rx4U, as well as a proportionally large number of villages to myself.

It's not even a new thing either, I don't remember –V- EVER having a big presence on the public forum, or any outside of the very rare post by Sir 8myshorts. Is it not being promoted inside of –V-, or are the public forums discouraged, or are -V- members just embarrassed?

Actually, on that note; I can't even name a –V- player other than the ones I've been nobling off; can anyone else? I can't help but feel we should be starting some sort of community outreach program for these lost and alone individuals, and bring them into the warm embrace of PnP.

If only for the lol's, no?
[4/11/2010 8:06:18 PM] 2004 Artemis says: Perhaps a circular explaining how to access the forums and avoid being banned would be appropriate ;)
[4/11/2010 8:06:36 PM] colpotastic says: I'll have to ask them to forward me the part about how to avoid bans. :D
[4/11/2010 8:06:45 PM] 2004 Artemis says: :p
[4/11/2010 8:08:19 PM] 2004 Artemis says: But -V- in and of itself isn't the only tribe with no forum presence. The w39 forums have been bare of any decent PnP for quite a few months (Rx4U excepted of course ;) ). It makes for a fairly dead forum for those of who do enjoy a bit of good PnP.

[4/11/2010 8:08:26 PM] colpotastic says: Ugh, I hate how dead the world 39 forums are
[4/11/2010 8:08:32 PM] colpotastic says: Makes me miss world 7 even more :(
[4/11/2010 8:08:58 PM] 2004 Artemis says: About your war, or shall we say a personal vendetta, against -V-, it seems you've been drawing the hits from Rx4U
[4/11/2010 8:09:06 PM] 2004 Artemis says: mind telling us who the active members are? ;)

[4/11/2010 8:10:36 PM] colpotastic says: Haha, Sir 8myshorts, Ronuval, HairyDownUnda, Funny831, Tnlon, and DeadlyProDownUnda are the only people I can think of who've sent attacks at me, and only Sir 8myshorts, Ronuval, and Tnlon have sent anything recently.
[4/11/2010 8:11:10 PM] colpotastic says: Actually, Sir 8myshorts promised the other day to rim me when I sent him a sadface mail about a train I had sniped. Said that he was mad at me because I nobled one of his villages. :(
[4/11/2010 8:11:17 PM] colpotastic says: Hopefully he's not too scary!
[4/11/2010 8:11:21 PM] 2004 Artemis says: :(
[4/11/2010 8:11:45 PM] 2004 Artemis says: I don't think we've seen anything from him up north. I guess we just must be too scary ;)

[4/11/2010 8:12:46 PM] colpotastic says: It seems that way, only actives left are the ones playing with me.
:(
[4/11/2010 8:16:22 PM] 2004 Artemis says: Just days before Rx4U declared on -V-, they (-V-) had a fairly solid reputation still. Yet their lack of forum presence and ingame failures has destroyed their reputation. How much of an effect do you think this has upon a tribe?
[4/11/2010 8:18:02 PM] colpotastic says: I think it's extremely important, I speak solely from experience, when I say that a solid forum presence, even one where all the members of a tribe do is troll and flame, is important. It encourages several things; activity, so you're there to back your mates up; a tight community, your tribe vs everyone else; and it encourages players to, well, play better. The better you play, the more you can brag about on the forums later. ;)
[4/11/2010 8:18:48 PM] colpotastic says: As for ingame failures, I like to think of tribes like a set of dominos. It may take more then one or two to start the reaction, but if a few gets knocked down, the rest are bound to go down with them.
[4/11/2010 8:19:29 PM] 2004 Artemis says: Very true. The first few weeks of a war often decide the course it will take.[/spoil]
Up next is Sith Rage of the Anger? Family. He had some interesting opinions on the survival of a smaller (pointwise) tribe in the core of the world
[spoil][4/14/2010 6:47:06 PM] 2004 Artemis says: Okay, who are you in game and what is your tribe?
[4/14/2010 6:47:20 PM] Tyler(Sith) says: In game i am Sith Rage
[4/14/2010 6:47:31 PM] Tyler(Sith) says: tribe is the oh so loved Anger?
[4/14/2010 6:47:46 PM] 2004 Artemis says: you are the leader?
[4/14/2010 6:47:58 PM] Tyler(Sith) says: yes
[4/14/2010 6:48:19 PM] 2004 Artemis says: Your tribe is scattered across a fairly large area. How do you deal with this?
[4/14/2010 6:49:11 PM] Tyler(Sith) says: We have the tribe set up into Squads, each has a squad leader that organises deffense and things like that
[4/14/2010 6:49:32 PM] Tyler(Sith) says: for bigger ops i will give these leaders plans and cords
[4/14/2010 6:50:27 PM] 2004 Artemis says: But it must be difficult to maintain cohesion in such vastly separate areas. Your behavior is more like several tribes than a single one.
[4/14/2010 6:51:43 PM] Tyler(Sith) says: No, not entirely. I can see how you would think that, but we work as any normal or great tribe would. Right now we are working on K44. After getting control of it. We plan to lock down main K's
[4/14/2010 6:52:15 PM] Tyler(Sith) says: I still lead the tribe and give orders but squads are used.
[4/14/2010 6:52:24 PM] 2004 Artemis says: So you're eliminating T.D.E F and IRON F?
[4/14/2010 6:52:37 PM] Tyler(Sith) says: Not T.D.E. but iron yes
[4/14/2010 6:53:22 PM] Tyler(Sith) says: Mask and T.D.E have asked for help in the war. I am still on the edge of choosing whos side to pick.
[4/14/2010 6:53:36 PM] Tyler(Sith) says: But.. I have a pretty good idea.
[4/14/2010 6:54:32 PM] 2004 Artemis says: That's assuming of course that the plan isn't to actually turn and destroy you. Now being in the core how do you plan to stay alive?
[4/14/2010 6:56:01 PM] Tyler(Sith) says: Well, I did worry at first of being turned against. However i have good friends in each tribe also some pretty powerful members (whom i will not say the names of) that want to join Anger?
[4/14/2010 6:57:18 PM] Tyler(Sith) says: My future movements im unsure of as of now. But in time, i think my choice of who i pick to fight along side in the T.D.E/Mask war will have a huge out come in our overall plans and survival
[4/14/2010 6:57:44 PM] 2004 Artemis says: In light of this, why did you feel the need to expand to a family tribe?
[4/14/2010 6:58:08 PM] Tyler(Sith) says: lol, i have had that question asked alot actully.
[4/14/2010 6:58:46 PM] Tyler(Sith) says: Its not a family, more of an acad tribe. I want my tribe to be full of the best players and the most loyal. I feel that no player is more loyal then a player that has to go through a Acad.
[4/14/2010 6:59:02 PM] Tyler(Sith) says: (I hate family tribes)
[4/14/2010 7:01:10 PM] 2004 Artemis says: There's little difference between an academy and a family apart from how the players are allocated. Be frank with me, this isn't Politics 101, this is your chance to reveal the truth to the world. Truthfully, why would you feel the need to have an Academy?

The players would be close to fitting within your own tribe. Did you feel the need to have the protection of more members? Or was it an attempt to pad your own stats?

[4/14/2010 7:02:44 PM] Tyler(Sith) says: To be honest. They are used as bashers in a sense.
[4/14/2010 7:03:21 PM] 2004 Artemis says: So is it an academy or bashers?
[4/14/2010 7:04:04 PM] Tyler(Sith) says: a little bit of both. I allow the Bashers to have a portion of the villages they bash. Once reaching about .5Mill points they are allowed to move to Anger?
[4/14/2010 7:04:52 PM] 2004 Artemis says: You ignored my question as to why they shouldn't be in your tribe.
[4/14/2010 7:06:29 PM] Tyler(Sith) says: Like I said a little bit of both. The members that are in Angry?, are used as bashers, like i said. Also it is a Acad like i said. The players in it Bash and learn from us at the same time. Once they reach .5Million and a point in witch i think they are good enough to join Anger? they do. I should have made that more clear.
[4/14/2010 7:06:48 PM] Tyler(Sith) says: my apologies
[4/14/2010 7:08:04 PM] 2004 Artemis says: So how about a bit of history on Anger?/Angry? How did you come about?
[4/14/2010 7:08:35 PM] Tyler(Sith) says: well this is going to be a long story. You sure you want to hear it lol?
[4/14/2010 7:08:57 PM] 2004 Artemis says: Of course, my readers love a good story.
[4/14/2010 7:09:30 PM] Tyler(Sith) says: ok. Well its really owed to Wally and Adian.
[4/14/2010 7:11:48 PM] Tyler(Sith) says: I started as a single player with a player named Lord Zulu as a tribe called -AGRO-

Wally offered me to be is basher insted of killing me. So i said yes. Once The basher tribe Wally and I had made (WALLY) had become kind of big, we found Aidan's basher (BASH) sense we shared the same K we figured hey why not merge and bash for all of SIKE. So we did
[4/14/2010 7:13:46 PM] Tyler(Sith) says: The bashing for sike went good, but i guess it somehow turned into a Family thing it never was meant to but it did.

We helped bring down Lost(kinda) But as all good things come to a end so did SIKE. Alot of my players got sick of bashing and really didnt want to, and were going to leave. When MASK showed up. I knew about this plan along time before it happened.
[4/14/2010 7:15:05 PM] Tyler(Sith) says: So to stay on topic. When sike disbanned i wasnt going to disband the basher tribe. TheSettler and I chanced the name to Anger? and decided to become our own tribe and try to create a land mark in the world.
[4/14/2010 7:15:31 PM] Tyler(Sith) says: Settler stepped down from leadership and now i am the only real leader of Anger?
[4/14/2010 7:17:01 PM] Tyler(Sith) says: As far as Angry?. I noticed we began to be getting full of members lower on the points and O/D side. So i had the Idea of a Family/Acad tribe, And so came Angry?
[4/14/2010 7:18:30 PM] 2004 Artemis says: So apart from your attempted publicity stunt promising support to MASK/T.D.E, what are your other tribal plans?
[4/14/2010 7:19:33 PM] Tyler(Sith) says: lol, We really are going to help one of them. But define tribal plans. Movement? or Future Alliance looks?
[4/14/2010 7:20:44 PM] 2004 Artemis says: Yes
[4/14/2010 7:21:57 PM] Tyler(Sith) says: ok both. Movement i cant really give that away with out telling who im going to help. What I can say is that as of now we are moving into K44 and then cleaning our main Ks.
[4/14/2010 7:22:35 PM] Tyler(Sith) says: Future Alliance I look to either Rx4U or T.D.E/MASK (cant say witch of the two with out giving it away)
[4/14/2010 7:24:44 PM] 2004 Artemis says: Anything else you'd like to add?
[4/14/2010 7:25:00 PM] Tyler(Sith) says: Nope that about does it.
[4/14/2010 7:25:50 PM] Tyler(Sith) says: Other then Thanks for the interview. I hope this help people to understand Anger? a little bit more.[/spoil][/spoil]




[SPOIL]This is the opinion portion of the newspaper, where my very biased opinion of the world discusses (for the most part) the various wars taking place. However, I may deign to touch on other subjects including mergers and disbandments.

Up first is the headline of the week, ~RAID~ vs ??? You may have seen the stats above and been confused. This article shall attempt to explain it. Note: This article is roughly two days old, however the stats are current. During the time between the two, ~RAID~ did land a successful op on ???
[spoil]
The Perplexing War- A riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma
Disclaimer: The following article contains no evidence other than that of TWstats. All information is the opinion of the editor, myself, and does not represent the views of my tribe or the opinions of the involved parties.

This is one of the least publicized wars taking place, with neither involved tribe having any significant forum presence. With their recent turn in tide against -V-, many would expect ~RAID~ to be doing similarly well against ???. However, the opposite is in fact true. You may have noticed the weekly stats listed above, but when shown with the monthly stats, it tells a more convincing story.

[spoil]Side 1:
Tribes: ~RAID~

Even more revealing, is a look at how some of the individual players of ~RAID~ have been fairing. The action begins on March 26, with an op on Winonly, an inactive (or soon to be inactive) member of ~RAID~. After the opening strike, ~RAID proceeds to quickly noble out the remaining villages. Days later, another questionably inactive player, Pleven, is hit by ???. After his loss of 19 villages, yet again ~RAID~ begins internalling him. Enter target number 3, Kravakin. He is assumedly active, since after losing 18 villages in just two days, ~RAID~ didn’t begin internalling him. The final heavy target hit was gazski, who after losing 22 villages found his relief in the delete button.

Now you may be saying to yourself, but Artemis, these aren’t the REAL players in ~RAID~, these were just the inactives nobled by ???. What about nightmare1 and -=I am the Joker=- ? With their high rank they must be annihilating ???. Yet again I am afraid I must reveal the sad truth to my reader. Nightmare1 appears to have been one of the initial targets. In a matter of days he lost 17 villages to ???, recapping only two which were taken back days later by ??? and keeping only one. -=I am the Joker=- did little better. He has lost 24 villages to the tribe that is ???, taking but a couple from ??? for himself.

Draw your own conclusions, but the facts are below, each set of stats a testament of the blow to ~RAID~. [spoil]

This article discusses the merger of three large players into the T.D.E family about one week ago.
[spoil]To merge or not to merge?
That is the question faced by T.D.E Family leadership after they merged three large players, stingrat123, nicky381, and ELordl from the *TA Family one week ago. It is interesting that this merge should come along. The *TA Family (composed of *TA, 911, TAK, and THEM) have been long known to be allies of the T.D.E Family (composed of T.D.E, T.D.E2, and T.D.E3). Does this mark the end of the alliance as the families prepare for war? Or is it a more overt sign that they are really one giant 7 tribe family?

With low conquers against each other over the last week (6-2, in T.D.E Family favor), it is unlikely that war has broken out yet. And the profiles remain unscathed from a 7 tribe listing. But it does leave those of us on the forums wondering why. Stay tuned for next week as I bring interviews from the involved tribes.

And last, but certainly not least is NOB!!
[spoil]The Birds and the Bee…Bunnies
Unfortunately for NOB!!, this isn’t the long awaited talk of the birds and the bees , instead this is about their war with TBE. Neither tribe has posted much on the subject with TBE lacking representatives and NOB!! feeling that it is beneath them. Anger has also since declared that TBE in their area will be left alone. It begs the question, is it that difficult to let a tribe war in peace? Not much else to say on the subject other than the fact that NOB!! has brought their usual best to the table and are mutilating TBE. If a NOB representative would like to contact me regarding an interview on the subject, that would be great.

The last sets of stats are lacking images because apparently there's a limit of 50 image per post. Who woulda thunk it?

And that's the way it is,

[4/20/2010 7:55:38 PM] Areyaen>>>ARE: not really just picking on them , only 3-4 of our guys are near them
[4/20/2010 7:56:36 PM] 2004 Artemis: Ah, so just a fun fight on the side.
[4/20/2010 7:56:42 PM] Areyaen>>>ARE: war involves actual thought
[4/20/2010 7:57:03 PM] 2004 Artemis: Good point, I'd like to come back to that in a bit
[4/20/2010 7:57:15 PM] 2004 Artemis: Now TBE have recently announced there surrender?

[4/20/2010 7:57:16 PM] Areyaen>>>ARE: OPS? are for wars, lol
[4/20/2010 7:58:05 PM] Areyaen>>>ARE: yes they surrendered all their K84 members, nothing we were not going to take anyway
[4/20/2010 7:58:28 PM] 2004 Artemis: So where do you see NOB!! going now?
[4/20/2010 7:59:32 PM] Areyaen>>>ARE: not entirely sure, NOB!! is far from your regular run of the mill tribe, things are a bit more relaxed? here
[4/20/2010 8:00:12 PM ] Areyaen>>>ARE: we play because it's fun
[4/20/2010 8:00:25 PM] 2004 Artemis: only reason worth playing
[4/20/2010 8:01:05 PM] Areyaen>>>ARE: true but we carryon more than anything, jokes and crap
[4/20/2010 8:01:33 PM] Areyaen>>>ARE: making fun of targets is a real art form over here
[4/20/2010 8:02:15 PM] 2004 Artemis: it's a pity the PnP on the world has become so poor
[4/20/2010 8:03:05 PM] Areyaen>>>ARE: that is true...our guys have been banned enough that I had to order them to slow it down a bit, now they rarly bother..
[4/20/2010 8:03:41 PM] Areyaen>>>ARE: and I rarely visit myself anymore
[4/20/2010 8:03:56 PM] Areyaen>>>ARE: hoping this paper of yours will liven up the dead
[4/20/2010 8:04:05 PM] 2004 Artemis: I hope so as well ;)
[4/20/2010 8:04:34 PM] 2004 Artemis: I'll see if I can get some other stats going as well, and if that fails, then I'll declare the world dead :p

[4/20/2010 8:05:01 PM] Areyaen>>>ARE: MMM more inactives I need to get that script, lol
[4/20/2010 8:05:10 PM] 2004 Artemis: :D
[4/20/2010 8:05:18 PM] 2004 Artemis: earlier, you said

[Tuesday, April 20, 2010 7:56 PM] Areyaen>>>ARE: war involves actual thought
[4/20/2010 8:06:06 PM] 2004 Artemis: It could be argued that most of the wars that have taken place on the world wouldn't be "real" wars. What's your stance on this? Have there been any "real" wars, especially of late?
[4/20/2010 8:08:39 PM] Areyaen>>>ARE: NOPE, nothing I've seen here so far could be really considered a war, every tribe attacked seems to just run to another tribe gain protection till we kill all the support they were willing to give... and then run to another tribe for more

or in the case of RX4U vs V they pretty much fold after a decent attack is sent?
[4/20/2010 8:09:09 PM] 2004 Artemis: yep
[4/20/2010 8:09:28 PM] 2004 Artemis: Anything else you'd like to add?

[4/20/2010 8:10:29 PM] Areyaen>>>ARE: NOB!! needs more accounts? we have too many players to fit in
[4/20/2010 8:10:32 PM] Areyaen>>>ARE: ???/
[4/20/2010 8:10:45 PM] 2004 Artemis: :D
[4/20/2010 8:11:23 PM] 2004 Artemis: You must be the only tribe not losing the war to inactivity

[4/20/2010 8:12:08 PM] Areyaen>>>ARE: accepting account donations, nah we've had a few (sort of inactives)
[4/20/2010 8:13:29 PM] 2004 Artemis: What do you think of the MASK/T.D.E F war?
[4/20/2010 8:14:50 PM] Areyaen>>>ARE: TDE may get some uneeded and unsolicicted help if certain people don't stop trying to poach our members
[4/20/2010 8:14:56 PM] Areyaen>>>ARE: ;)
[4/20/2010 8:15:10 PM] 2004 Artemis: :D
[4/20/2010 8:15:20 PM] 2004 Artemis: Any opinions on the outcome of the war?

[4/20/2010 8:15:29 PM] Areyaen>>>ARE: every conversation costs 2 villages they owe us a player by now
[4/20/2010 8:16:22 PM] 2004 Artemis: :D
[4/20/2010 8:16:43 PM] Areyaen>>>ARE: honestly couldn't care less, just another tribe to either deal with in time or ignore til they get in our path[/spoil]
[spoil][4/20/2010 10:08:27 PM] 2004 Artemis: Okay, introduce yourself. What account are you on and what tribe are you in?
[4/20/2010 10:08:38 PM] Ahmen.Terminator: MASK
[4/20/2010 10:08:40 PM] Ahmen.Terminator: AHMEN
[4/20/2010 10:09:18 PM] 2004 Artemis: I was told by some people on the forums that you have a habit of talking in the third person
[4/20/2010 10:09:31 PM] Ahmen.Terminator: Agreed
[4/20/2010 10:09:43 PM] 2004 Artemis: Care to comment on it?
[4/20/2010 10:09:55 PM] Ahmen.Terminator: Ahmen plays as Ahmen
[4/20/2010 10:10:13 PM] Ahmen.Terminator: Others play as clowns , some , jokers
[4/20/2010 10:10:26 PM] Ahmen.Terminator: some bashers , some just plain noobs
[4/20/2010 10:11:14 PM] Ahmen.Terminator: Ahmen get's his point accross to others simply in the "3rd" person
[4/20/2010 10:11:26 PM] Ahmen.Terminator: Very effective
[4/20/2010 10:12:03 PM] Ahmen.Terminator: to be short
[4/20/2010 10:12:08 PM] Ahmen.Terminator: Ahmen is more than 1 player
[4/20/2010 10:12:23 PM] 2004 Artemis: how many players is Ahmen?
[4/20/2010 10:12:31 PM] Ahmen.Terminator: 4
[4/20/2010 10:13:05 PM] 2004 Artemis: shouldn't that be talking in the 4th person then?
[4/20/2010 10:13:13 PM] Ahmen.Terminator: lol
[4/20/2010 10:13:22 PM] Ahmen.Terminator: collective
[4/20/2010 10:13:23 PM] 2004 Artemis: ;)
[4/20/2010 10:14:25 PM] 2004 Artemis: we had heard that you are a leader in MASK?
[4/20/2010 10:14:53 PM] Ahmen.Terminator: yes
[4/20/2010 10:14:57 PM] Ahmen.Terminator: council member
[4/20/2010 10:15:01 PM] 2004 Artemis: oh good
[4/20/2010 10:15:15 PM] 2004 Artemis: we like to interview people who know what they're talking about
[4/20/2010 10:15:16 PM] Ahmen.Terminator: Ahmen tends to be Ahmenipresent
[4/20/2010 10:15:21 PM] 2004 Artemis: (chuckle)
[4/20/2010 10:15:29 PM] Ahmen.Terminator: Available
[4/20/2010 10:17:33 PM] 2004 Artemis: so, you guys have been warring T.D.E F for a several weeks now. you initially how fairly significant losses, but have managed to turn the tide over the past month. what's made the difference?
[4/20/2010 10:18:00 PM] Ahmen.Terminator: 2 B completely Honest
[4/20/2010 10:18:19 PM] 2004 Artemis: oh good, a bit of truth ;)
[4/20/2010 10:19:13 PM] Ahmen.Terminator: An honest effort of the leaders to become active in times of rl issues
[4/20/2010 10:19:38 PM] Ahmen.Terminator: Concerted
[4/20/2010 10:21:33 PM] Ahmen.Terminator: A meticulous attention to detail , in the planning/choosing of targets . And a properly , realistically setting of accomplishments
[4/20/2010 10:23:36 PM] 2004 Artemis: So basically, you've been able to improve as leaders? (y) You've also lost several of your initial members, some to T.D.E, others elsewhere. How has this changed the war?
[4/20/2010 10:23:51 PM] Ahmen.Terminator: Hasn't
[4/20/2010 10:23:58 PM] Ahmen.Terminator: Our goal remains the same
[4/20/2010 10:24:24 PM] Ahmen.Terminator: This war will not be won in a month or two .
[4/20/2010 10:24:34 PM] Ahmen.Terminator: Patience , and activity
[4/20/2010 10:24:46 PM] Ahmen.Terminator: We have fewer players
[4/20/2010 10:25:06 PM] Ahmen.Terminator: But our players have the skill and due diligence
[4/20/2010 10:25:51 PM] Ahmen.Terminator: Besides Mask and tde family
[4/20/2010 10:26:00 PM] Ahmen.Terminator: w39 has your tribe
[4/20/2010 10:26:20 PM] Ahmen.Terminator: a force to be reckoned with and Nob
[4/20/2010 10:26:38 PM] Ahmen.Terminator: This war will take time
[4/20/2010 10:26:52 PM] Ahmen.Terminator: Respect to both your tribes
[4/20/2010 10:29:07 PM] 2004 Artemis: This brings up another good point. Across several threads, though decreasing over time, there have been many mentions of "top tribes", that leave MASK out, often including insults to MASK. How does the lack of a decent forum presence effect your tribe?
[4/20/2010 10:30:34 PM] Ahmen.Terminator: The externls fail to deter our members , or lower their moral . If anything the externals remind us , that words are easy to come by. Territory is not .
[4/20/2010 10:32:01 PM] 2004 Artemis: Although with the recent disputes over Anger, that may not be completely true. MASK merged several Anger members, although I've noticed some have since left.
[4/20/2010 10:34:04 PM] Ahmen.Terminator: Mask , prides itself on not having a large amount of members
[4/20/2010 10:36:12 PM] Ahmen.Terminator: In a tribe that is democratically run , sometimes members may be recruited , that have not been properly measured and weighed. We are in a state of war . In angers case , an obvious tug of war was happening .
[4/20/2010 10:36:43 PM] Ahmen.Terminator: TDE has nap ed or allied every tribe around us
[4/20/2010 10:37:02 PM] Ahmen.Terminator: Attempted to ally anger
[4/20/2010 10:37:09 PM] Ahmen.Terminator: Problem
[4/20/2010 10:37:57 PM] Ahmen.Terminator: Some @ anger are Terminators
[4/20/2010 10:38:28 PM] Ahmen.Terminator: Ahmen , maintained the relationships
[4/20/2010 10:38:35 PM] Ahmen.Terminator: since disbanding
[4/20/2010 10:38:55 PM] Ahmen.Terminator: TDE failed to realize as many do n Tribal wars
[4/20/2010 10:40:17 PM] Ahmen.Terminator: Relationships/Bonds born in a players first tribe are hard to sever . Angers disbanding is clearly a result of that , and the relationships made from former sike members
[4/20/2010 10:40:50 PM] Ahmen.Terminator: Ahmen , maintains contact with all his former Tribe mates
[4/20/2010 10:41:12 PM] Ahmen.Terminator: Ahmenipotent
[4/20/2010 10:41:48 PM] 2004 Artemis: there you go again with the bad pun
[4/20/2010 10:41:58 PM] Ahmen.Terminator: ;)
[4/20/2010 10:42:34 PM] 2004 Artemis: it is interesting that even after all this time, the bonds do remain. i noticed that sith rage failed to bond
[4/20/2010 10:42:48 PM] Ahmen.Terminator: not original
[4/20/2010 10:44:04 PM] 2004 Artemis: But from his (excessive) attention whoring, one would have thought that he'd surely be invited to the tribe of his choice. I guess he must've just pissed off Karma...
[4/20/2010 10:44:36 PM] Ahmen.Terminator: Perhaps
[4/20/2010 10:44:53 PM] Ahmen.Terminator: surely if he chooses to stay , he'll find a home
[4/20/2010 10:46:04 PM] 2004 Artemis: i've noticed that he has found a termporary home. Will MASK be pursuing his destruction?
[4/20/2010 10:47:13 PM] Ahmen.Terminator: At this time , current and future plans are off limits dear friend .
[4/20/2010 10:47:20 PM] 2004 Artemis: Ahh....
[4/20/2010 10:47:31 PM] Ahmen.Terminator: The war is against T D E
[4/20/2010 10:47:38 PM] 2004 Artemis: of course
[4/20/2010 10:48:35 PM] 2004 Artemis: What does this mean? Is every major issue voted on by the whole tribe?

[Tuesday, April 20, 2010 10:36 PM] Ahmen.Terminator:

<<< In a tribe that is democratically run
[4/20/2010 10:48:47 PM] Ahmen.Terminator: No
[4/20/2010 10:50:10 PM] Ahmen.Terminator: No decision is made by 1
[4/20/2010 10:50:36 PM | Edited 10:50:40 PM] 2004 Artemis: So a council runs your tribe and agrees upon issues?
[4/20/2010 10:50:49 PM] Ahmen.Terminator: Agreed
[4/20/2010 10:52:22 PM] 2004 Artemis: Are you guys related to BASH?
[4/20/2010 10:52:54 PM] Ahmen.Terminator: yes
[4/20/2010 10:53:12 PM] 2004 Artemis: Academy or Family?
[4/20/2010 10:54:02 PM] Ahmen.Terminator: Basher tribe
[4/20/2010 10:54:24 PM] Ahmen.Terminator: as we have attacks from tde cohorts that morale kills us
[4/20/2010 10:54:32 PM] 2004 Artemis: ah of course
[4/20/2010 10:54:34 PM] Ahmen.Terminator: like TA
[4/20/2010 10:54:42 PM] Ahmen.Terminator: and TAK
[4/20/2010 10:54:50 PM] 2004 Artemis: they attack along with TDE?
[4/20/2010 10:54:59 PM] Ahmen.Terminator: yes
[4/20/2010 10:55:14 PM] 2004 Artemis: and after they've tried to claim they're just allies...
[4/20/2010 10:55:18 PM] 2004 Artemis: thanks for mentioning that

[4/20/2010 10:55:34 PM] Ahmen.Terminator: Ahmen has reports
[4/20/2010 10:55:56 PM] Ahmen.Terminator: odd is odd no matter where it comes from
[4/20/2010 10:56:01 PM] 2004 Artemis: :D
[4/20/2010 10:56:05 PM] Ahmen.Terminator: :p
[4/20/2010 10:56:14 PM] 2004 Artemis: is BASH2 also connected to you?
[4/20/2010 10:56:19 PM] Ahmen.Terminator: no
[4/20/2010 10:56:31 PM] Ahmen.Terminator: Again
[4/20/2010 10:57:18 PM] Ahmen.Terminator: MASK was born in the hate of , or response to the fact that recruiting targets , don't make for good warring .[/spoil][/spoil]



[spoil]Facepalm of the Week
by Undead Billy Mays



Three blind tribes ... three blind tribes
See how they're run ... see how they're run
They all believed in the three headed dog
Who seems to be veiled within a fog
Did you ever see such a thing on 39
As three blind tribes


For those of you not familiar with the Facepalm thread, from time to time I like to point out some observations made by myself or those close to me. The facepalm thread is not meant to hurt poor wittle feewings but rather just to bring to light these topics for discussion.

The World's largest family tribe with the world's largest player sharing a massive front with the warring tribe in Mask. With all the commotion that left Cer-berus out of the Sike disbandment and formation of Mask this was going to build up to a great battle. Right now this is the kind of thing we should be witnessing



wait for it...

Well Mr. Undead Billy Mays... The ODD stats have been rising a bit.. And that certainly can't tell the whole story. Obviously Cerb is being attacked if the ODD is rising at all. Your just looking for a conspiracy here. Cer-berus is the top ranked player on the world. It would be suicide to just attack attack attack right? I mean it's not like Cerb is holding off on Mask villages too...

Your right other voice in my head - I wish there was a different set of statistics I could use to more clearly paint this picture...

Analysis:
[spoil]Yet another quiet week rolls by. Forum posts begin [url=http://forum.tribalwars.net/showthread.php?p=5022910#post5022910]here
. The new family tribes have been added to the stats this week, but you can see even with the addition it made very little difference. Embraze was hit fairly hard this week with 18 conquers by MASK. In their usual style T.D.E began eating him just days later. It’s good to know your tribe supports you. :icon_wink:[/spoil][/spoil]
[/spoil]
Part II: It’s a boy!
[spoil]
Since my last newspaper, both MASK and the T.D.E F have welcomed home new family members. The majority of the players in these new tribes came from Anger?, perhaps no one trusts them enough to let them near their main tribe?

For MASK, BASH is their first born child. Today marks the 12th day of its life, so be sure to congratulate the parents, er parent. It’s odd that a tribe claiming 1337ness would allow such a paltry tribe the gift of family. For example, out of their 46 conquers, 17 have been 1.5 barbs. Not a village has been from T.D.E F their supposed enemies.

Maybe it’s just me, but why does a 29 member tribe even need a 16 member family tribe? They would easily fit within the main tribe. Unless of course, MASK is embarrassed by the poor performance they can expect from BASH. After all, these members are former Anger?, not exactly a good track record there...

The mixed family of T.D.E is used to the addition of another tribe to their family. After all they’ve been experimenting with the adoption of *TA, 911, THEM, and TAK for months. The new family tribe here has changed around the tag, but has settled upon “Anger?” for now, with a full name of Lord Fierro’s Bashers, shorthand for T.D.E 4.

I find it fairly interesting that even though Anger? is the newest tribe to the family it’s bigger than T.D.E3. The last time I remember this happening was when IRON3 was bigger than IRON. And we all know how that ended...(downfall of the tribe in case you didn’t know :icon_wink: )

Glad we could get together,

Welcome to the Artemis Examiner! This week continues the series The 1337 v the N00B starring the TDE F and MASK. Included in this is an interview with The Beast of Burden. Also in the news this week is the newly announced NOB!! v ??? war. The declaration wasn't announced to a certain editor ahead of time, forcing a delay of the newspaper as an article and interview were collected.

[/spoil]



[spoil]This week your two interview are from The Beast of Burden, former leader of NMS, and Areyaen, leader of NOB!!.
[spoil][3:53:23 PM] The Artemis: So introduce yourself, who are you, what tribe are you in, and why should I care who you are?
[3:56:14 PM] James: I am free up da herb the beast of burden, I am now in MASK, "and why should I care who you are?" ... I dunno I'm to high to think of a reason...
[3:56:55 PM] The Artemis: Note to self: lack self-respect
[3:57:05 PM] James: :p
[3:57:12 PM] The Artemis: So to continue, you were the former leader of NMS?
[3:57:49 PM] James: Yes
[3:58:44 PM] The Artemis: You guys were a close-knit tribe, with a small amount of members sitting on the eastern rim, correct?
[3:58:59 PM] James: Yep, that was us.
[3:59:29 PM] The Artemis: How did you guys originally form?
[4:02:07 PM] James: *side note* are you talking about how NMS formed?
[4:02:21 PM] The Artemis: yes
[4:02:28 PM] The Artemis: (chuckle)

[4:07:19 PM] James: We pretty much where in the same tribe all the way up untill i was kicked from LosT for "spying for Nob!!." Then I joined SIKE, which of course got disban. Shortly after, MASK reformed and I was like.. mmm ok... yay its SIKE with a new name and they dont have cerb, and a fey other of the original sike members... *face palm*
[4:07:41 PM] James: We had been talking about it anyways, so brighteyes formed the tribe and we all joined.
[4:08:34 PM] The Artemis: Yet you've now rejoined MASK? The tribe that wasn't good enough for you before? What prompted this?
[4:08:53 PM] James: well, was not good enough is the wrong way to put it..
[4:09:29 PM] James: morelike i just did not want to join the exact same tribe that just disbanded
[4:09:43 PM] James: and things where rough in lost
[4:09:55 PM] James: which all of lost was recruited
[4:10:35 PM] The Artemis: So why have you decided to now rejoin MASK?
[4:12:29 PM] James: KD started sending fakes at me
[4:13:35 PM] James: kinda pathetic but over 12 hours t.d.e sent 1000 fakes...
[4:14:02 PM] James: so figured we are fighting the same fight now soo...
[4:14:27 PM] James: also
[4:14:29 PM] James: I fliped a coin
[4:14:32 PM] James: ;)
[4:15:40 PM] The Artemis: Don't pass the responsibility to me ;)
[4:15:52 PM] James: What can I say
[4:16:13 PM] James: lol artemis
[4:16:18 PM] The Artemis: But just sending attacks would only merit NMS attacking TDE, why would decide to go all the way and join MASK?
[4:16:37 PM] James: I am not even joking.. I fliped a coin 20 times in a row and got mask 20 times in a row
[4:17:20 PM] The Artemis: Wow, I guess it just must be your fate to join MASK
[4:17:39 PM] James: lol
[4:17:53 PM] James: i hope :)
[4:18:12 PM] The Artemis: So now that you've joined MASK, what do you think of it?
[4:19:00 PM] James: too early to pass judgment
[4:19:46 PM] The Artemis: Surely you can get something from its forums, the way its leaders act, the way its members treat you?
[4:20:52 PM] James: it was really intense seeing a sea of blue everywhere xD
[4:21:22 PM] James: the members are really chill like it was at nms
[4:21:40 PM] James: but the tribe is run compleatly different then NMS ofc
[4:23:10 PM] The Artemis: Of course. I'm sure NMS was run a bit looser than most bigger tribes
[4:23:29 PM] The Artemis: Now, you guys have taken a bit of flak for "merging to the top". What do you have to say about this?

[4:26:42 PM] James: instend of sitting on the fence watching t.d.e and mask battle it out we figured why not join.. nothing else to do on w39
[4:27:31 PM] The Artemis: Not much of a battle thought is it? I mean there's probably more posts a day arguing about the war then there are caps
[4:33:08 PM] James: lol
[4:33:20 PM] James: sorry was afk for a sec there
[4:33:23 PM] James: umm..
[4:33:56 PM] James: KD and QD nobled in k68.. then they stacked there barbs with 100000/100000+
[4:34:55 PM] James: t.d.e is really doing nothing i can see other then nobling our barbs and stacking them
[4:34:56 PM] James: -.-
[4:36:48 PM] James: and they convinced all the noob tribes to work with them
[4:36:51 PM] James: well..
[4:37:02 PM] James: they got aagpr to stack them
[4:37:22 PM] James: well still are getting them to stack them
[4:46:20 PM] The Artemis: So, UBM posted a new thread yesterday about 5 players who you wouldn't want to face. Name a couple of yours and why.
[4:47:35 PM] James: NO ONE!
[4:52:52 PM] The Artemis: So is there anything else you'd like to add to the interview?
[4:56:02 PM] James: Happy Hunting ;)
[4:56:18 PM] The Artemis: okay, that's done[/spoil]
[spoil]The Artemis: So this is the first "real" war for NOB since you guys went after the Cialis guys, correct?
Areyaen>>>ARE: yes...
The Artemis: You guys mention the main reason for war with ??? was "because you could", then defined all of their members as refugees. Why did you actually choose ??? specifically out of your many neighbors as a target for war? Both MASK or -V- would also have been viable war targets.
Areyaen>>>ARE: well there were many factors involved...

our ally getting their butts handed to them while we watched (too many non-active members holding back the better players)

the invitaion of Falles would have to have been the closer, we told them not to invite him as we were wrapping up our TBE fun so we could do him and bluenose on tour(they were buddy's), we helped Raid war with POP way back when, lol, and they ran off to OMEN and Cialis as spy contacts for the Omen leadership, so we've been patiently waiting for the right time to take him
The Artemis: So there was a rational reason ;) How do you think you'll do in your war?
Areyaen>>>ARE: Well to be an arrogant NOB!!?....can't get any closer to the rim now can I, lol
The Artemis: :D
The Artemis: Anything else you'd like to add?

Areyaen>>>ARE: I just hope this one is more fun... but chances are they will jump ship and merge with Mask or TDE and like Cialis we will just keep coming until they run out of people that are willing to support them stack after stack only to see them torn to the ground and nobled anyway
Areyaen>>>ARE: NOB are patient folks, we like to make sure to hit that sweet spot just right, lol[/spoil]
[/spoil]



[spoil]I have a ???

Who on this world didn't know that Nob!! and ~Raid~ were buddies???




Maybe I take for granted being part of a well run leadership team, one that makes an effort of collecting as much solid intel as possible. One that waits for the right time to act and choses sometimes to not act until every detail has been addressed.

I have not found myself in a situation like this on world 39 because proper planning, diplomacy and preparation have always been implemented.



Not that Nob!! needed a reason but you gave them one[/spoil]



[spoil]
The 1337 v The N00B- Part III: Where's the War Gone?
[spoil]Before I delve into this next article, I'd like to stress that unlike some of my tribemates, I am unbiased in the TDE F v MASK war. That said, I do have a standing bet that the war will end in under two months with at least one of the involved tribes disbanding and its members merging and reforming and little to know change having happened due to actual war (low ennoblements, etc). Bet was made about two weeks ago, so you guys have six more weeks to endure. :icon_wink:

It's quite easy to see how I would get this opinion. MASK (and a few members of TDE now) came from the ruins of several failed tribes. Those Cobra/82nd/SIKE/MASK/etc members (forgive me if I missed some of the other tribes in the sequence) have been tribe hopping for months. Little to no headway was ever made in their wars before they popped into a new tribe, leaving the previous one in ruins. After the collapse of SIKE, these members yet again went to find themselves new homes, but this time the enemy swallowed several, as TDE recruited themselves to first from a much lower ranking. MASK, as a new tribe, obviously did the same.

Because of this, I was beginning to think quite early on that TDE would quickly gain the upperhand in the war, cause many MASK members to leave, and the tribe would disband within a month of its formation. This may not have been the scenario I favored, but it seemed likely given the high weekly stats TDE was pulling early in the war. This was followed by claims from MASK of "inactivity", "I just got a life", etc, which lead to them being thoroughly mocked. Yet as the war has continued, it is becoming increasingly obvious that those claims might in fact have been quite true.

This brings to mind the question hat happened to TDE? Where did the killer offense go? I must say that I was a bit disappointed to realize that TDE were exactly what they appeared to be, a mass recruiting family, not a top tribe. Especially with the fallacy involving the annihilation of their troops with ill-timed, improperly stacked villages, the belief was firm in mind that they had not matured as a tribe.

As a whole, MASK was regaining forum popularity with their better stats against TDE. This worked well with their posts cricizing TDE's mass recruitment and lack of offensive in the war. That was until they recruited NMS in a merge pushing them to rank 1. The claims for this merge include "an extension of their border with the T.D.E F" and "we were fighting a common enemy, so why not?". (Anyone notice a NOB!! and ~RAID~ merge yet?)

So since the merge is purely for war, we should be seeing some significant war stats then, right? Wrong again. In the last week, MASK has had just thirteen conquers against the T.D.E F. The T.D.E F has had just three in return.

Where has this taken us? To be quite honest, it's gone full circle back to my original belief. The whole war is a facade for the internal hugging that is taking place. Every couple months it collapses, realigns itself, and begins anew. How long will this continue? Riddle me this.[/spoil]

Nob!! v ???
[spoil]This week, NOB!! stepped back into the realm of warfare with their declaration upon ???. They cited reasons of war including the recruitment of targets and the attack of an ally, ~RAID~.

Now for a bit of background on the ~RAID~ and ??? war. The war was first announced to the world four weeks ago in my first newspaper. It came as a bit of shock given that ~RAID~ had been doing decent against -V-. Stats now totale 252 - 56 in the favor of ???.

This thus becomes a bit of an embarrassment for NOB!! seeing their ally being pummelled. Coupled with their desire for a new war, NOB!! prepares for action. Preparations were completed, and NOB!! opened a second front, slamming ??? from the rear.

Now we should consider how "good" this war could be. NOB!! is 2.5 times bigger than ???. ~RAID~ is close to the same. Together, ??? is outnumbered almost 5:1. This is certainly possible odds, although it is interesting that NOB!! would intentionally choose to war a tribe so much smaller than they are. Certainly one would think a tribe who plays the game "for fun" would seek their greatest challenge, not an easy victory.

Yet the greatest question plaguing the minds of readers is "Who's gonna win?". It is safe to say that ??? would be hard pressed to resist the power of NOB!!, particularly when they are also being hit by ~RAID~. Perhaps other tribes may choose the moment to join in the fun, but with just two days into the war, it will be weeks before we get a glimpse of the bigger picture.[/spoil]

Welcome to the Artemis Examiner! This week my office was Nobbed!! and the paper was deleted and replaced with a version Nob!! preferred. This includes a commentary from Areyaen, another from Anabolic, and some stats from Colpo. Also in this weeks paper is an interview from the mysterious side of town and a look at the past three weeks of the Southwestern war.

There's also a different set of stats below that Colpo was kind enough to compile. These stats mark the number of internals and barb nobles out of the total nobles for the top 20 plus a certain attention whore. The bigger the number, the more internal/barb nobles the player has.

[spoil]With the convoluted paper this week comes an interview from the losing side of the NOB!!/~RAID~ vs ??? war. Please welcome The Dragyness
[spoil][7:39:37 PM] The Artemis: Okay, so who are you and what tribe are you in?
[7:40:01 PM] The Dragyness: The Dragyness - Mystery (???)
[7:42:03 PM] The Artemis: Now fairly little was known about you guys before your war with ~RAID~ was highlighted in the first issue of The Artemis Examiner. Tell me a bit about how that war began.
[7:46:12 PM] The Dragyness: Most of ??? were formerly Raid members who just got tired of the way things were being run and wanted to try something new. After a brief stint in -V-, we decided to try doing things our own way, and ??? was formed. However, there was some bad blood between us and our former tribemates, which ended with us deciding to remove them from our territory.
[7:47:18 PM] The Artemis: After you guys began to cause significant damage to ~RAID~, NOB!! jumped in to save their "ally". What was the ??? feeling toward this?
[7:50:55 PM] The Dragyness: Irritating but expected. They were kind of obligated by the "rules of an alliance" to step-in, but there was a tiny part of us that hoped they would behold our quasi-awesomeness and stay neutral.
[7:51:18 PM] The Dragyness: Alas, it wasn't to be.
[7:52:24 PM] The Artemis: Since NOB!! has stepped in, ~RAID~ is attempting to argue (amid many flames) that they never even bothered to fight back against ??? until after NOB!! joined in. Is this the truth? Have you seen a difference in ~RAID~?
[7:55:40 PM] The Dragyness: Of course they are going to argue that to save face. There were a couple of players like Rooki who put up a good fight and gave our western players a run for their money, and there was certainly some stacking done on the K74 villas by Joker and Nightmare.
[7:56:13 PM] The Artemis: So then you would say in general that ~RAID~ (for the most part) was not fighting back before NOB~~ joined in, but they are now?
[8:00:26 PM] The Dragyness: On the eastern side of the tribe, maybe, minus the stacking... as I said, the western players were taking heavy hits from a few players like Rooki, closer to the Raid border. After NOB declared, I suddenly had a ton of incomings from Raid players...
[8:01:25 PM] The Artemis: NOB!! loosely uses their alliance with ~RAID~ to justify attacking you guys, but do you think it was more a thirst for expansion on easy targets?
[8:04:48 PM] The Dragyness: I don't know... I'm sure it was numerous things, including us taking in a player they claimed as a refugee (tho' I don't necessarily buy that 5 mos. later, but oh well), but this is TW, and you have to keep warring to progress... and we were the closest.
[8:06:50 PM] The Artemis: You guys have been fighting this war as an underdog, and regardless of any difference in skill, the attrition rate alone would likely bring your demise. What has been your solution to dealing with the numbers stacked against you?
[8:12:24 PM] The Dragyness: There really isn't a solution... we fight 'til the end, but I think the stats are answering for us...
[8:16:15 PM] The Artemis: So what's your opinion on other events in the world? MASK or TDE?
[8:19:23 PM] The Dragyness: Well, we've been a little distracted by our own problems, lol... being surrounded by NOB wasn't quite as pleasant as previously thought. :x There are pros and cons to both sides, and I don't think anything is going to be decided anytime soon...
[8:19:50 PM] The Artemis: So who's your favorite tribe in the world (??? doesn't count)?
[8:21:07 PM] The Dragyness: Hmmmm... do I get suck-up points for naming RX4U? :p
[8:21:24 PM] The Artemis: Hmmm....only if you give it a good reason ;)
[8:23:55 PM] The Dragyness: Um... well, I have a lot of respect for Focalor, that Artemis guy writes a great paper, and UBM creates some spectacular sigs!
[8:24:13 PM] The Dragyness: That's all I've got, lol.
[8:24:51 PM] The Artemis: Who's your least favorite tribe (excluding those you're at war with, unless you have a particularly good reason)?
[8:27:27 PM] The Dragyness: Eh, I'm a creature of habit, so I am sticking to disliking Raid and NOB. Watching one's empire crumble is a bit disconcerting...
[8:28:00 PM] The Artemis: Anything else you'd like to add to the interview?
[8:32:11 PM] The Dragyness: Sadly I have nothing witty to add, unlike certain phallic attention whores... :x[/spoil]

[spoil]This week offers two commentaries supplied by the folks at Nob!! As always, that attention whore Areyaen felt forced to submit an article followed by one of his lackey's Anabolic.
[spoil]WHAT IS NOB!!?- A Personal Opinion Disclosure

In a few years I have met hundreds of different TW players, each with their own strategies and conducts, and many of those have lead me to create my own set of edicts for this game, that I and many others love to play

There are "The Known Gods" of the game, and their unknown counterparts;), there are those with the potential to learn,,, and then there are the Nubs or N00bs, who come out for the show but forgot to buy their tickets

TW is becoming an overly simple game with the creation of so many available scripts, strategy alone seems the only separation between a "Great Tribe" and just another tribe anymore.

I like to think NOB!! is more than just another tribe, we are friends, family, soundboards for those fights with your spouses over TW time, stopping you just before you noble them!!. NOB!! was created as a group of buddy's that said "hey, lets see how fast we can get rimmed" but how? be arrogant be rude and hate everyone... that usually works if your looking for a long enemy list?

I'm the 3rd leader of NOB? but far from the best, I'm the tribes overseer? more than a leader, NOB!! has a 90% council goal, meaning I want every member to be NOB!!'s eyes and ears and voice, much less for me to do... and I'm good at compiling information from each to make sound decisions for NOB!! to grow by, but still I enforce my personal game edicts upon the tribe... with friction!! arguing is healthy, because everyone has an opinion here, or they are not worth my time,(I WANT to know them), sometimes I just start and argument to see what the tribal reaction is, not that I actually believe in the arguement I pose, helps me to decide things sometimes, I suppose every leader has their own ways?

NOB!! "ACCOUNTS" get 1 shot to be here, there is no second try at it, you pull your weight or we noble you?, if you leave we noble you?, and if you betray us we noble you...? and if you stay and the majority doesn't like you... we replace the ownership, simple way of dealing with things?, NOB!! "PLAYERS", are for life no matter the time or place NOB! will watch for you, on another world we'll ghost you so you can sleep, even sit your inactives members during a war, It's FOR the fight not because of it, NOB!! is unbiased, though we do pretend differently at times, lol

I believe though this game is built on WAR it does have a bit too much of the tribalhugs mentality in regards to friendships, don't assume that because your a friend that you are safe... EVERYONE is a target, and if NOB!! comes at your tribe... you will be tested and weighed same as any other... and I expect the same from my friends outside of NOB!!, in fact will be quite pissed off with you, should you not give me your best game and insult our TW friendship, I play darts and snooker, I play against friends, and I play to kick some "DONKEY", same as that old game "Mortal Combat", just a bunch of buddy's plugged into a game trying to kick the others "MULE", over and over again, and having a blast doing it, TribalWars IS NO DIFFERENT? at least not to me?

If your tribe is worthy of a respectable war you will know we are coming and have time to prepare, WHY? because I will tell you when your pushing my limits and your luck, (no need to beat around the bush, I go for the sweet spot), I'm not a backstabber type, I believe you should look your enemy in the eyes before you tear them out of his head, straight forward honest approach?

Diplomacy is not my strong suit, I don't like kissing people on the cheeks (my tongue enjoys the action too), an ally is a tribe that doesn't NEED your help, but doesn't mind if you do, or if you do not, I don't like feeling compelled to help anyone not even my tribemates, if they help themselves I'm more than willing to put my nose in it for a good sniff, having terms to make it acceptable, NAP's are generally the same principle for me, we only choose not to attack while we stay out of your business, sometimes I find Naps have a tendency to make tribes believe they can move into areas they would not enter without one, so NAP's need terms as well, as for enemies, well if your not under the other 2 (which most are not), you would fall under this(my favorite) heading, whether we've marked you there or not, we call it snacking, we just take a few villages here and there and if you make a stink we will put your tribe back in it's place on the food chain

just a little NOB!! for you............. I hope you enjoy the tip:icon_razz:,

Areyaen...call me Are(R....EEE)

I encourage the rest of the Tribal Leaders to give us the same courtesy of their edicts/perspectives on the game

[spoil]This article, as you may have guessed will be on the three-way war between ???, ~RAID~, and NOB!!. But before a proper analysis can be made, a recap is needed on the war.

The beginning of this war was several months ago, to a date I traced (through twstats) to approximately March 26. It was first revealed to the forum audience on April 16 in the first issue of The Artemis Examiner, found here. At the time, ~RAID~ had been riding on a forum high following their apparent success against -V-. The article had a profound impact upon their reputation, reducing their image yet again to little better than any other group of inactive players.

However, this all changed on May 14 when Nob!! made the fateful decision to declare upon ???, which can be found here. The decision to declare spoked controversy as NOB!! was joining in against a tribe which already had the odds stacked against them. As NOB!! has been known as an "elite" tribe the declaration upon a much smaller tribe came as a slight disappointment.

Now, after that dramatic change, ??? is losing badly to the combined hammer and anvil of NOB!! and ~RAID~, although it is NOB!! that is doing the majority of the pounding. Yet in spite of the massive losses ??? are taking, should it not be expected given such a difference in their sizes?

NOB!!:
As of now, ??? has conquered 8 NOB!! villages, however just one of those has been kept by ???. Govnar Smrti lost and was unable to retake a village from The Dragyness.
On the other side, NOB!! have had 433 conquers against ???. Unfortunately, I haven't found someone willing to count how many individual villages were taken and kept. There were several players hit hard by NOB!!.The first was falles from whom NOB!! had 201 conquers. NOB!! has 114 conquers against The Dragyness. Nob!! had 97 conquers against Malthus.

~RAID~:
Note: ~RAID~ had only 12 conquers against ??? from the time of my last article until May 22 when their offensive resumed (presumably after NOB!! had softened the targets). Thus, I will not be discussing ~RAID~ conquers from before this point, however I will discuss ??? conquers from April 16 to now.

~RAID~ has managed somewhat impressive stats against ???, with a total of 215 conquers. They have accrued 126 conquers against jebby69 and 45 conquers against Solar Maliv.

Since we last visited them, ??? has focused on a variety of players, so I won't be going in depth there.

Here are the official stats since the Nob!! declaration.
[spoil]Side 1:
Tribes: ~RAID~ NOB!!
Players:

Side 2:
Tribes: ???
Players:

Timeframe: 12/05/2010 00:00:00 to 09/06/2010 05:10:12

Total conquers against opposite side:

Side 1: 650
Side 2: 45
Difference: 605



Points value of total conquers against opposite side:

Side 1: 5,871,528
Side 2: 425,781
Difference: 5,445,747

[/spoil]

NOB!! and ~RAID~ are leading by a massive margin, but they also are considerably larger than ???. Four days after the NOB!! declaration, NOB!! had 29,972,952 points, ~RAID~ had 25,639,086 points, and ??? had 11,450,817 points. Given that they were outnumbered 5:1 it would be reasonable to expect them to be severely losing, assuming that the tribes were of equal skill. Yet we all know that NOB!! possess some of the greatest talent on the world, unbalancing it even more. Thus I would consider the war results to be quite expected.
[/spoil]

Now I've got an announcement of my own. This will the be the last issue of The Artemis Examiner, at least in this form. I've recently been selected as a blogger, so The Artemis Examiner will have some slight changes. Instead of being (about) every two weeks, it will shift to being weekly. That said, it will shrink in size, running about one interview, one article, one commentary (with maps and other fun stuff thrown in :icon_wink:).

That's All Folks,
The Artemis
