World Wonders

I don't know Achilles, unless Ascension can take one of those cities back from DS then it is definitely in our own hands. A bit of vigilance and we should make it but it is ours to lose now.

That's the main problem with these Wonders thing, isn't it? Reduces the entire game play down to a city or two. We've been hurt by it a couple of times (once I think it was by you, Valerio!). Now it looks like that Ascension is hurting, and so on. Might be a good idea to petition to the admins to just demolish those wonders or at least detach the wonders from the winning conditions of the game.

Yeh, sorry for that, but these things happen when people go to sleep at the wheel, as we all know (ps. my boys are getting somewhat bored sat around doing nothing so feel free to attack).

In fairness though, the wonders don't really have any link to the winners of the world. Yes if anyone gets 4 they get a bit of kudos, 7 even more so, but it doesn't bring the world to an end. We will probably get 4 but Ascension will still be the no.1 alliance, so who's the winner? What I do think is that it shows the alliances who are co-ordinated and work well together. It's easy to spot the members of an alliance who aren't active and therefore contingencies should always be in place. That is part of the strategy to the game. However, Its not always easy to sustain continual assaults on individual targets, so you guys have done well in holding on to two such strategic cities.

Personally, I'll be proud if we do take the 4 wonders first up against an alliance 3 times our size. It will also be a bit strange in having to thank an enemy for making it possible but I will always find it easy to salute warriors than those who see recruitment as a viable success strategy.

And now we have Ascension trying something a bit clever.

Not going to be easy catching us from scratch but they obviously have the numbers to give it a go.

Nay, it ain't. But it ain't easy killing 12k biremes and lord knows how many land troops either.

ah... remember the good old days...12k biremes would be eaten for breakfast by warring alliances before all this wonder poop.

The good old days when the sea burned red with fireships...and the sky darkened under the wings of harpies and manticores...*used to be all green fields round here*

I hope Ascension do something soon, all I've got is attacks to a distant city, I didn't fair too well but still sank some unescorted attacks with a bireme. A full on blast between PoC and Ascension is what I'm really looking forward too.

Sorry Jtin, but as long as I'm among the leadership here at Ascension, that's not going to happen cause of us.

As long as any of us in Leadership are still here. None of us want to turn on PoC.

And nor will PoC. For all intensive purposes the alliance between PoC an DJ/AS is the longest standing and most prominant pact in beta.

Not for long Jtin, not for long. City reclaimed and building recommenced.

While we appreciate this is the attitude of the leadership it seems it is not the stance of your alliance as a whole. We had heard rumblings from Sceeth that this was the case but I'm surprised one of your members was daft enough to get caught trying to support his hold on our wonder island once we got back in and thereby give us proof.
