Yeh ok, first started the server by fighting En, then found myself surrounded by reds in the form of bloods, then went to En despite all my cities being in bloods territory. Ive been surrounded by red until about a month ago. I dont get attacked much it has to be said, mainly because im online a lot and that puts people off, and also my city groupings are so tight I can usually get D there quicker than the attacker can.Looking at your colonisation stats, well... well done, they look great! If it was a bumpy ride, I'm sure you'd have lost a city somewhere along the way and your DBP would show it. Your DBP must be most from supporting, i guess!?
Again, your ABP is great, well done! Did you even got attacked, or was just building for OFF for OP days? Alarm off, cause I doubt you even got attacked, other than a retaliation here and there!
So, since you joined EN it has been pretty much an easy ride. If you had stayed with bloods and fight EN beside them, you BP stats and colonisations would have, possibly, be completely the opposite. A bumpy ride, maybe?
Anyway, easy ride in my opinion is when the bulk of your city takes are internals and you can just sim and build your cities to 17,000 pts/
