    A small ditty on the subject of a recent skirmish in Selymbria, inspired by/vaguely plagiarised from Scottish 'poet' William McGonagall, Scotland's revenge upon the English language. Anyone who Googles him and attempts to read any of his poetry does so at their own risk!


    'The Tomb Bust Disaster'

    Patrons of the externals this day!
    Alas, I am not at all sorry to say
    The Magicians' units have all gone away
    In Selymbria (EN 99)
    Now they have to rebuild for a very long time.

    Twas about quarter of nine on a Monday night,
    Griffins arrived with both fury and might,
    The defensive troops went tumbling down
    Faces in True Fear wore many a frown,
    And the demons in the sky seemed to say,
    "Will this World Wonder last through the next day?"

    The attacks were launched the very same night,
    Triremes and flyers and ships that were light,
    The wonder city was plain in sight
    And to ring in a brand new year,
    Would the city fall, that of True Fear?

    The attacks rumbled over the ocean that day,
    The colony ship was about midway,
    The attacks hit bireme walls, such dismay!
    The OLU was sunk in the bay!
    (The flyers at least made it, anyway)
    The defending side loudly cried 'Hooray!'
    So many troops, now taken away
    They had a revolt at about a quarter to nine,
    But TM now rebuild for a very long time.

    As soon as the catastrophe came to be known,
    The attackers let out a mighty groan,
    The chances of busting, perhaps they had blown,
    In Selymbria server (EN99)
    Now TM must rebuild for a very long time.

    Patrons of the externals this day!
    I must now conclude my lay
    By telling you all without dismay,
    That although it may have seemed a farce
    Busting wonders is a pain in the... erm
    ... neck
    TM went for it, though some would have said 'Nay'
    Though wonder cities we all must build,
    Seldom are they wrested from the strong-willed.

    Well you left a wonder city inactive for 20 hrs and it had nothing in it so we had to give it a shot. Afterall we had an event coming and us massive golders at TM can easily replace losses from the event, which we have already. We have killed bigger attacks from TF in the past without blinking. Glad we could bring a little joy to your day.

    My new name for your alliance is PAT which is short for ....

    I think it is so sad that you and your little friends are so obsessed with True Fear. You guys need to move on.

    How about this: Play your own games for your own selves. Stand on your own feet, don't "cycle thru" some other teams victory.

    And also, don't screw your friends over. It makes you look really bad.

    Jimmy boy ... the only one obsessed is you and the only one with a record of screwing over friends over multiple servers is you. Personally all you were good for was feeding us BP to grow. You thought this time you got us with that merge in 56 and somehow you screwed that up with your top attacker/defender leaving due to your leaderships actions.

    And who says we aren't going to win? ... you? .... then I like our chances because you are wrong more often than you are right. Now move along and lets see if you get more than 1 wonder without cheating.
