    the best teams existed before gold became a major game factor, which means that most of you won't remember them at all. There was one on gamma, I forget which one but it wasn't hugs if you are talking about teamwork not success rate. Phoenix of Carthage were amazing on teamwork (who remembers them?). If you are talking success with dodgy game tactics then you have to hand it to Dark judgement's flawless endgame tactic of rotating VM on completed WW islands so that they are unattackable.

    Nope, they got sabotaged by hugs, they had about 20 players, let me look... grepostats no longer exists lol. Incidently, I think one of the reasons for Naji quitting was after he ran into DJ's dirty WW tricks.

    What remains of them is over on Achilles. They won everything then got bored and camped out on achilles. Most of them have left there now too. Crisfassu, Batalo, Edeken etc. Every world they joined they won.

    Perhaps a better question would be,, What was the most successful Alliance that played with honor?

    There seems to be precious little of it left in grepo now days. Skill replaced by gold, strategy replaced by all manner of sleazy plots, loyalty in hard times by ship jumping, huge Alliances attacking small ones. farm bots , gold bots, attack and defense bots... I could not say that I have seen a legitimate crown in years.

    I've noticed that a lot of this tends to be a problem on fast servers but if you go down to a 2 with morale, the drop off is huge. I'm not saying 100% solved but my experiences on Lato and Olous were two different things.

    People always jumped ship when times got hard. Huge alliances always attacked small ones too.

    The Huns on EN4 dominated the Speed 1 - never saw anything like it.

    The Dirty Dozen on EN9 were a fantastic crew.

    It’s a shame that so many old schoolers have moved on. The best worlds were around 2.0 before all the gold and events came in.

    As an old timer, I’ve never seen so many events. The Christmas event was the highlight of the Grepolis calendar.. Unless you count those awesome Speed worlds they did years back.

    more than the gold and events. athenas records and all the sites that followed changed what is considered "best" teams. once enemies only targeted your easy to look up sleep hours "spam them through their sleep for days" became the new offense. from that point on "best" is really defined by most resilient, little else.

    There were always ways of foiling the records and offline time hunters, the thing that really changed the game was the app alarm. Back in the days, you could spend as much as you wanted, but if you were not there it didn't help you, now if you have gold and the alarm, theoretically no-one should be able to take a city off you ever. Fortunately we have server lag to thank for the lack of people that can attain that. But point is that the facility has meteorically widened the gap between normal players (basic spenders) and gold whores.

    true. the online time websites and app both came about at approximately the same time. i just lump it all together mentally.
