I'm not one for statistics because like someone said earlier they can be manipulated to mean something else......but I've got to say I am really surprised by the lack of support some of the conquests on AoA are getting especially when there a soo many setts from AoA nearby!!
I'm not a great player I'll admit that but sending counter attacks with biremes and land troops and then following it up with a second ls wave attack strikes me a slightly daft! This isn't the first time either!
As for AoA being such a great alliance time will tell but from chatting to some of your players quite a few seemed unprepared for war and even said they were not warned it was coming. So yes you may well push back but not until the unprepared have time to get prepared and that may be too late for them....just a thought!!
yeah now its to see which players have switched to which alliances and what their new gameplans are.. for example a switch from aoa to uae will hardly change that players presence as a threat.. theyll still be around making the same plays..
