Newspaper Week One: Gossip

ill tell you why hydra fell... for starters you had 3 founders, thats a recipe for disaster to begin with. secondly you didnt have any diplomacy, diplomacy is often overlooked but if you play your cards right, it can give you a huge advantage. many times accomplishing unexpected things. In your case you guys needed friends. Those are the two main reasons Hydra fell.
Pretty sure I can name a few teams that have done very well without using diplomacy. But that's just me, can anyone else think of any?

im sure there is, but for that to work, you have to work like a machine, no weak links, no internal problems. which im sure hydra had. with 3 founders theres bound to be some internal problems

But one founder who's never there and a back up leader who doesn't know how to lead is better ? Yeah, good luck with your internal problems.

Who's the back up leader who doesn't know how to lead?

Wait why would you bother having two absent minded founders, when I am sure there are two other people in the alliance who have the characteristics needed to be a good leader :heh: Either that or I misunderstood completely :D

There was three, at the beginning I practically did everything, no not practically, literally. After a while once the other two founders didn't like how I sent out an update stating a few things that were going to be changed and one of them said that we need to slow down on our conquering since everybody was conquering cities but nobody was helping others conquer cities and just wanting help on their own and I said that we may even have to take a break for a day from conquering. A player sent out a mm saying a few things about it and that's when the other founders stepped up finally and then said I was being a dictator and removed my rights. This isn't the time and place for an entire story though. Maybe later when its story time :)

haha you have no one to blame for yourself. first off if their not doing their jobs, get rid of em. second off, if you we're conquering cities who cares. you tried to stop conquers when in reality all you had to do was tell your players to start supporting one another
 
Its not gonna last long due to the fact i'm not trying very hard here. But how am I still in the top 100? Oh and top 20 ABP
