Re: As a player in the 'big league' I'm considering dropping out because of this also (long rant)

Somewhere along the line we went from "Hey, CF is down... let's all go check out the Travian game and see what's up." to "Play constantly and don't be in an area which has an enemy Brahk-like player in it or you're getting the boot." If you go back and read some of the forum posts here you'll see quite a few people suggesting that we not even allow non-QHCFers into the alliance at all.

On one hand, if someone is being inactive (red dot) or is consistently a farm we should do something about it (kick them and/or help them). On the other hand, I don't see what the big deal is about everyone chipping in and bumping the embassy a notch or two in order to bring in more players and still keep our allegiances to the QHCF crowd.

What I find particularly disturbing is that the leaders of the Alliance are being actively recruited by other alliances and aren't responding with raids and/or catapults. How could anyone expect us peons to strive to work harder when the leadership is ready to drop us like a hot rock because a prettier girl batted her eyelashes at you? I also wonder how many of them sent out IGMs, actively recruiting other alliance leaders. I'm betting very few.

What's particularly retarded about this whole concept of winning is that these servers generally come down to two confederations duking it out at the end. "Winning" in this sense just means the coin toss landed you on the Eastern side of the map rather than the Western side... or vice-versa. It's ridiculous to assume that we would be the leading alliance at the end. That'd be like expecting your first character in CF to be the next Cabdru. It's absurd really.

Either way, this whole nonsense of people having unrealistic expectations of getting immediate reactions to a forum post, or assuming that a person is growing slow because they suck (rather than they were stuck in an unlucky map location) is preposterous. In the last week or so the fun factor of Travian has been cut in half for me. I hope it gets better soon.

Kicking CFers down to the scrub league is lame.

Probably long-winded, but my statement...

Rhuean July 06, 2008 01:22AM

Why can't we all be in the same big alliance? txt

Isildur(VIP) July 06, 2008 04:24PM

It's all about apperance.

Java July 06, 2008 05:01PM

This is really a legitmate argument

Let's cut through the hyperbole.

Competition is fun for some people.

Rade July 05, 2008 08:23PM

Umm.. no one said you can't play "just for fun".

Java July 05, 2008 08:29PM

You seriously need to stay in the Air Force for life, because you'll never make it out here in the real world

Rade July 05, 2008 08:55PM

Dude, are yo serious?

Java July 05, 2008 09:01PM

No seriously stay in the Airforce cause you are the most dense motherfucker on the planet.

ORB July 05, 2008 11:46PM

You guys are just getting personal and ridiculous

Lokain July 07, 2008 09:42PM

Good post. Nail on the head. ~

ORB July 05, 2008 07:27PM

Who got the boot? CF-E looks like it always has, at least. nt

The Forsaken(VIP) July 05, 2008 03:56PM

People in the main CF alliance. nt

Java July 05, 2008 04:18PM

It's not about being elitist. It's about trying to win.

Java July 05, 2008 02:56PM

What are you talking about?

ORB July 05, 2008 07:22PM

I didn't think it as that unclear.

Java July 05, 2008 07:32PM

I disagree

mblackthorne July 05, 2008 03:25PM

You're of course welcome to decide what is right for you.

ExPaladin(VIP) July 05, 2008 04:26PM

You DO drag them down.

Java July 05, 2008 04:18PM

I will step out here

mblackthorne July 05, 2008 04:44PM

I was speaking generally..

Java July 05, 2008 04:50PM

Dude, I respect your moxy and all

Jib July 05, 2008 04:29PM

Well, the CF group can be divided roughly into two groups.

Java July 05, 2008 04:39PM

Here I thought the whole purpose of a game was to have fun, silly me. ~

ORB July 05, 2008 07:26PM

You're fucking retarded. Some people have fun by playing. Others, by winning. nt

Java July 05, 2008 07:48PM

mblackthorne July 05, 2008 06:12PM

You're taking it too personally.

Java July 05, 2008 06:20PM

Yep...too much trouble to send out a message

mblackthorne July 05, 2008 06:30PM

Dude, whatever..

Java July 05, 2008 06:47PM

Don't be defensive

mblackthorne July 05, 2008 07:21PM

Ok, that's just funny.

Jib July 05, 2008 04:43PM

My bad.. my previous post was painfully unfocused.

Java July 05, 2008 05:01PM

It's not an issue

mblackthorne July 05, 2008 05:14PM

You're not the one dragging people down, per se.

Java July 05, 2008 05:28PM

"...ultimately better for everyone." - Phooey nt

mblackthorne July 05, 2008 06:17PM

You're acting like a jackass now.
