oh real nice try, you mad bro, got your panties in a bunch....can't be original so had to steal from me and my arguments?"Sometimes a decision to help your allies without going to war is also a smart choice. All that I see here is that BoW is taking the sour end of the stick"
rather be a stupid warrior than smart P**SY
"Again I debate your so called sphere of influence. Looking at the Map it is clear that 3 of those oceans are sparcely populated and easy to infest by the enemy. The only ocean you have any real type of presence is in O45 and that was acquired from the RoaE fall. WWs, r u nuts, if you are preparing for that then you have seriously misguided your troops and have done a horrible job. You are looking at this all with blinders on. So basically no real growth to speak of through credible wars, okay, understood"
Just as much as you have... Like Alex mentioned allready, you picking off inactives may show on statistics, but is no feat of strenght. So basicly Swarm have no real growth to speak of in terms of taking cities from good active players? gotcha!
"I can see it in all the statistics and strategic placement on the map and BoW does not look good for the long haul. Again, your allies will be your only saving grace, but won't be enough. you can't build a strong core in those rim oceans, why you may ask? Because you will need to waste city slots to colonize like mad."
still a possibility
"An inside birdie has told me and much more, that is why I can speak with full honesty that BoW is failing...BIG TIME. You guys already gave up weeks ago."
You are so sadly mistaken it's unbelievable how you can twist words. The new world idea to get more good players in close proximity was way before the swarm war started. Swarm war put the idea on hold for a while, and ppl going inactive in numbers accelerated the reimplimentation. That doesn't meen you are gonna win no fight, just meens a some guys will sit back and play supporters for our allies effords against you.
You sir are definitely not either a SW or SP, you think you are and that is worse than both. Is that your only point to argue? Inactives? Every alliance has them and you must deal with them just as every alliance does. And have you even put any thought into why they went inactive?!?!?! Because they were getting their behinds thrashed on and could not handle the pressure, cause I'll tell you what, every player was active until they took a beat down from SWARM and the results will repeat itself. Some ran into VM, some decided just to hang up the towel. Just because you all handled it incorrectly and let your alliance mates get pummeled and only protect your "special" friends doesn't take anything away from what SWARM has done. What it does show is a lack of taking care of your alliance and above all a serious communication problem or non desire to really care for every member of your alliance. In the end you all are turning defensive and it shows in your BP stats...this means you will keep losing cities even at a faster rate as def troops diminish.
Please do colonize, your front line with diminish that much faster.
Sounds like you all coped out to me.
