A good read, thanks for making.
I think it can be hard to make judgements on alliances from the outside, but think you have done a good job.
I would addfrom personal experience that our interactions with Creed have been embarrassing. Terrible failing CS attempts , they have been losing players due to “apparent” poor organisation and support, andto me seem like sitting ducks waiting to be eaten.
FRANK seem to be the toast of the town, and they may be the best team, but excessive gold spending and using spies to gain an upper hand just taint the pot for me. If you are that brilliant, don’t look to get weasels to feed intel to you and buy your way to victory
