Pretty sure we are on world #4280 and fryn just lost the 0 of the end.Aren't we past world #428 now?
You may have a point though. Personally I am not a fan of the WW. Been through it twice already. It kills activity, and the reward for going into the Hero World really isn't worth the effort - though I do agree it shouldn't be a big reward, as it would just tip the balance even more between players.
I guess as an alliance that means we'll lose a few people when the WW starts, and they want to be part of it. I suspect we'll gain more than enough players in return who want to just keep doing what a war game should be about. Also, part of the fun will be trying to break into a Wonder Island to mess someone's plans up!
I reckon Pella will struggle to get to WW at this rate, but eventually it will come and then alot of alliances will lose alot of players. Its not a test of skill, just a test of resilience to boredom I guess.
