Well to be fair, the reason SIM (Mr. Gecko) won last round was cos the only serious competition came from Hegemony.
SIM was a pretty bad alliance, lost the 5x at a crucial moment, lost 3 sets of plans, poor rotation of trainer artefacts e.t.c.
If Hegemony had kept back even a couple of hammers instead of suicidicing them on random capitals, they would have walked it for once. But then again that might be expecting a little much from Hegemony.
No worries mate, Hege has hired me to plan the endgame this time. They always win when im around.
