Well Tord must be a far seeing player because this particular strategy is beginning to gather pace.  I do so admire visionaries Wink

and one thing finally if you feel that i wanna see H? suffer heavy losses than you are right i do and everybody does coz no body wanna see the winner having an easy ride (ALI wouldn't ve been remembered so much if he won all his matches in first round) but sadly that isn't happening.i am quite a small player but i am gonna definitely attack some H? squares 


Well, I think you should do some more homework, because H? is actually just a few thousands away from top casualties (Peace is the leader), and there are SEVERAL squares where other alliances are holding from the start without big attrition, so may be this is not a specific H? thing, but a common behavior in this kind of tourney. Also remember some squares are not at hand for most of the very localized alliances.  

That said, you are very welcome attacking our squares, it is a tourney after all ;-)

tallimar was bloody,really than what will you say about arran and western realms and more than anything else the tallimar battle served as a propaganda of H?'s smartness and it has actually worked...no body dares to attack H?....congo for your smart tactics H? you 've already won the tourney i guess while all other alliances fight it out for 2nd and 3rd spot




NOTE casualties in arran ~500k

         casualties in farra isle ~5k


i haven't done the calculation yet but  the combined casualties of H? dominated flag is around 500k i guess

H? are really smart they deserve to win


You profess to not be anti-H?, but you are clearly following an agenda here... Azura, for example, has 111k casualties. There are lots of non-H? squares with less than that. Selective fact picking is the sign of a propagandist.

(which is sad because this thread is supposed to be about the tourney and not yet another anti-H? platform)

Population wise, it would only take two or three alliances to match or better their population. I kind of wish the Crowlitions would form together and do something but again, I noticed there's a general "they're too strong we're not going to bother" opinion going on so it's hard to even talk about taking squares from H? without being met with extreme pessimism. 
hehehe
 it's not just that they have the top pop...
from what i see they are also the most heavily militarized ally of them all.

It's still fun no matter which way you want to paint it, congrats to all of those who are having a crack, and for those who aint, join in folks, this is one of the few times that the whole community accepts that anything goes.

And seeing H? def ratios on any kind of terrain, it would be a big waste of units to do so... it would require the full top 5 or even more top alliances acting simultaneously to perform that kind of aim imo..
