"Eventually [R] found INSO on their doorstep… knocking with a sledgehammer. When Paladin. opened the door to offer a greeting, he was swiftly kicked in the nether region and left to rot. [R] was simply out gunned by that point in time. Like a little poodle trying to attack a rabid wolverine."
You may not remember but my greeting was declaring war on INSO
a day after you guys declared on our allied tribe flux. INSO came to me for a NAP a few weeks earlier but i refused it... And the "little poodle" was ahead on stats until the flux guys that merged with us decided to jump ship :/
Now lets have a cuddle
But seriously isn't the blog meant to be about W13, not another
pnp thread dedicated to INSO?
Since [R] was disbanded, I am not able to pull stats. However, I do not believe that [R] maintained a noble count superiority from the start of the war to the recruitment of FLUX players. These blended stats are the best that I could find. They show that all enemy tribes listed captured 641 INSO/2 villages during the entire campaign. We probably
captured more [R] villages during that time. Honestly not sure. The great majority of INSO losses came against 1-2 dead players in INSO 2 (largely a graveyard tribe) and not INSO itself.
To the degree INSO 2 is counted against us in head-to-head matchups with R, MM8(or whatever tribe it was) should be counted on [R]'s side. Despite their persistent denials, the back-and-forth movement of players suggests that MM8(?) was an academy of [R], much in the same way INSO 2 was an academy of of INSO. Difference is, we made no effort to conceal or deny our relationship with INSO 2. Once you include in the MM8 stats or remove the INSO 2 stats, INSO will show to be the clearly dominant tribe. I think INSO (main tribe) lost about 150 villages to [R]. That's nothing.
Anybody know a way to dig up old stats?

Total conquers against opposite side:
None of this really matters, anyway. Our strategy was not
to take [R] villages. We were on defense and poorly positioned for that. Our strategy was to hold the line against [R], and improve our battlefront by filling in the gaps within the core. We filled in the gaps by taking anybody who was NOT in [R]. Once we had a sufficient border, we launched ONE mass attack against [R] itself. That was all it took to win the battle for the Core.
All the attacks against [R] up to that point were harassment.
After we assimilated our new members. We launched ONE mass attack against the historical members of [R]. This attack destroyed [R]. PR and ORION were created from the ashes.
Having said that, I do hold [R] in high regard for their early-world accomplishments. As a new leader of INSO, I PM'ed Paladin to ask for his advice on war management & running a tribe. Seriously. They were #1 overall & #1 in ODA, and had no obvious academy. Impressive.
