There are so many people on the server with techs/multies, that reducing it on to one player or alliance is not fair. Feels like, just because he is above your guy on raiding, you feel the need to point him out while ignoring the rest. Such as how do many these people have such attack and defense points for last two weeks? Also, you mean to say that close2insane didnt have any tech accounts, push, oases cleared for him or any sort of boost?
There is a big difference between multis and teamwork. Close2Insane is the best player (and with player I mean his account and the group of players playing on it) on our domain. When we started this server, every non-raider used all cages for our farmers (mostly Close2Insane) in the first few days. So yes he got help, no, its wasn't through multis and cheating. No tech accounts, No push accounts (settled in protection). Just one of the best travian players right now.
