Excellent strategy. I hope all alliance leaders will take note Big smile



It's funny to me how the flags that everyone but H? holds are pretty bloody, and no one seems to be challenging them for the squares. I personally have no qualms about making it more challenging for them Wink I can see how many have already "given up' on slowing them down, but i rather enjoy seeing how many of their troops i can take out in one hit....lol. Let's not forget that attack is boss in this game (except when trying to take a mountain.....damn WoT!!...lol) It's not uncommon to kill 3/1 on plains and other open areas, so why not take a shot at them? That being said, H? should know to expect a visit from me on a flag, just so they know i still care, and haven't forgot about them Tongue

Some of our flags are quite bloody too-- Tallimar?

And so kind of you to come visit. We'll roll out the welcome mat. But to avoid being rude, we'll have to, of course, reciprocate the kindness!  ;)

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)

I have noticed a general "Oh, H? has it, lets go after another square" rule going around. Personally, I think all of illy should be ganging up on H? (at least until they stopped being first) but I kind of doubt we'd see that kind of organization across so many people. 

It's kind of unfortunate for everyone actually, for those who are not H?, they kind of see them as unbeatable, not because you actually are but because they them. And then on H?'s end, they see a lesser challenge because a lot of people avoid squares they hold.

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..

Honestly, I don't know what they did in order to defend so well against you but I have seen armies take out much more than they lost. I kind of suspect it has something to do with stacking defense from the jungle bonus building but who knows. None the less, I don't think letting them win time and time again is really the answer here. 

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.

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.
