Obviously we can go back and forth, but everyone has different opinions/views on things. To me, you are simply reading too much into it, complicating a simple and straight forward post, in order to throw a little punch at the poster, could be that you like DiTM, obviously I reply because I am in Mavs corner :icon_wink:
I think we both are to be perfectly honest :lol:
anyways onto the over reading of each others comments :icon_razz:
Will use your way of counter posting here.
You are implying that he was implying that he nobles more than any player can, hence implying that he is making himself look like a 'great' player, when in fact he was obviously comparing himself to DiTM, and we all know standards aren't set high there .. But in fact his post was a comparison to DiTM, not world 33.
Ok...to be fair here I was using a bit of sarcasm...hence the ":icon_wink:" however I can see where it could be taken in a different context....tbh seems like your reaching for straws here to fit your argument.
He commented on DiTM's conquers, as it was a comparison in activity in war, or progress as you may prefer, reinforcing his point of what DiTM has done that is impacting on Detox/Hawks/TW so badly, not a comparison of Mav's conquers compared to any other world 33 player.
He adds the part of our 'smaller' players nobling more than DiTM, yet again, as a sign of progress/activity in the war compared to DiTM.
my only issue is if the statement above is true then why did he say this...
Oh 51 conquers in 3 months :L
I got more than that in a month .
sure sounds like comparison of conquers to me to me :icon_eek:
I understand your view on conquers, but even you have posted stats of conquers. Are you going to say that they don't count to anything? Stats of enemy conquers are useless, they don't show who the winning side is? Or even the 'better' side? In comparison to players, same thing can be applied - If I have 200 Legion conquers, and you have 100, yet we are both covering a front, doesn't that make me slightly, if not alot better than you? - Taking into account that both DiTM and Mav are similarly active, and do not have a greater difference in size.
I never said they don't count for anything...however like any information they can be slanted or even represented in such a way by the manipulation of stats that an accurate picture is all but impossible to find. Plus stats are just are like taking a few snapshot pictures to capture an entire movie. You can get a general idea with enough stats but even then you won't get even close to the whole picture.
for example to counter point your argument you simply state you have 200 legion counters and I have 100 and we are both in a front...what you don't take into account is what about how active the players are around you. for example if your hitting an inactive that really doesn't make you very skilled that just means you can clear a bvialleg and send 1 minute trains at it. however If I was next to a very active player that was staked and took 100 off and had timed nukes and nobles to land in the same second in order to keep my villages with support seconds after...I think that makes me a better player.
Then of course there are the factors such as who you have around you...how much help you have...what is the response levels to op planning. Then of course there is the time spent if said person is leadership and is busy running a tribe or even diplomacy. There are simply to many facts to take into account on whether or not a player is skilled or not that stats are woefully inadequate at providing an even remote representation of a players skill level. Are they a factor...absolutely...but they are in my eyes...only one of many factors.
