That rule is BS......Quoting forums rules like a good moderator
"Do not discuss in-game bans."
Anyway, I think it is a good lead that TT have, but the other alliances are not far off. In Athens, NmE ran away with ABP straight away, they then created a new alliance so that they could merge with another alliance, (creating Nordic Nightmares) but their original alliance, (with the inactives and players in VM) was still the number 2 attacker 2-3 weeks after all the active players had left.
What im saying is its not as bad here, the 2nd and 2rd ranked alliances have a bit of work to do, but if they get their A into G they could catch up.
