Because that doesn't communicate your standards.

No one is arguing that there is a specific objective to "win" travian.

But repeating that objective over and over is not clarifying what it means to you, Java, to "want to win."

If you'd just come out and said, "we want an alliance that is only composed of people who are willing to log in at least once every 24 hours and take basic steps to prevent easy farming, such as building a badass cranny," then there would be no hurt feelings. People who didn't want to play that game THAT way would happily sign up with a CF wing that has different standards. But by framing your standards as "wanting to win," not only are you being vague, you are effectively calling people that don't meet your standards "losers."

Anyway, it's all moot now, but there it is.

For the people who are all pissed off...

Java July 05, 2008 09:17PM

I'll tell you what irritated me and frustrated me...

Same here. Exact same here. nt

I would prefer if people who don't have a dog in the race would STFU about it

If there's a problem, present a solution.

Java July 10, 2008 01:56PM

I presented the solution. The solution was for people who aren't involved to shut up about it. Since you're not involved, that means you

Rade July 12, 2008 09:53AM

Yeah, we get it, you don't want me talking about it.

Java July 13, 2008 11:09AM

First of all, stop saying we when it's really just you

Rade July 13, 2008 06:29PM

The only thing about this that annoys me...

Falstaff July 08, 2008 02:04AM

You really need to elaborate on what you think it means to "want to win."

I've said this so many times..

Java July 06, 2008 05:53AM
