I'm not much for thrashing muggles, but those opposition guys sound exciting to fight. Wake me up when they assemble their grand armada.

I believe there needs to be a counterweight to the SINdicate, but coming from an appeal to the status quo might not be the answer.  Illy is a game and one that is, and should, continue to build on a positive community environment.  Attacking players who are of no threat isn't going to win the favor of the community and may force those to stand with an oppositional force with which they are uncomfortable.

I do call upon the developers of the game to reconsider the sitting policies of the game to require earning "sitter" time with limits and perhaps the use of prestige.  The practice of holding sieges also needs to change.  And lastly, enforce the multi-account policies already on the books.

Keep the active and productive farmers happy, they will make the markets you need, where you need them, to allow the military game to thrive!

I've been giving these issues some thought recently and I've come up with two suggestions:

The first requires a change to the game mechanics - get rid of siege and raze. Siege and capture - no problem, but siege and raze is too destructive. Instead of siege and raze have a 'lock city' option which would put the city into cooldown for 30 days and would remove all the cities sov squares. Set the threshold for this at about 2k pop. This would not destroy the persons research and work but would disable the city from the current hostilities.

The second would be a sandbox rule that not only allows but encourages land claims. Alliance members would live within alliance land claims. The military aspect would be satisfied by 'border incidents' as alliances expand or collapse and trade would be enhanced as alliance would have to trade for resources outside their claim.

I think these would work but I know they'll be shot down within hours.

Sokapopis, 
Let me give you a little history lesson, I was one of the main protagonists for the kick off of the great war, I collaborated with the crows to get it started. I was the no 1 troop maker for the GA, my troops were everywhere in that war. From obliterating H? in the north with Mano, to crushing the DSD and finally finishing off H?  Where were yours? You want to bring that war up, you should state what you did in that war. I smashed everything, looks like the only thing you are smashing is the kool aid.  

Maybe you should try and run some troops instead of running your mouth. 

Also, this whole crusade you clowns are progressing with these days is the actions that I have done, Stukahh had no real role in how the current events have unfolded. 

I welcome the opportunity for when you try and "rim" my alliance as you put it. I doubt any of you have the stones, ability or troops to pull that off.

and , off course im not expecting at all to see any SIN coallition member admiting the real truth .
It s very predicable that they ll come here to call me a liar .
They will say how great they are and how nice they always been . They never aggressed anyone and never abuse playing over aggressive style against peacefull alliances .
that s very predicable indeed .
