Alright, where do i start? At the beginning i guess Got no time to read this? Don't care about reading it? No problem, i am not forcing anyone to read. Don't hate it, don't read it. Move on. Simple as that.
It was 12.5.2019., a rainy and boring day in Croatia when i decided to play some Travian. Looked up the upcoming servers and there it was, Nordics speed, starting in just 2 days. Registered and waited about 10 hours until i start to play so that i am not close to the center as i rather like to be surrounded by players and not grey zone. Soon i started doing what i usually do, farm. Oasis were first to go down, obviously. I guess everyone has their own thing and farming is simply something i like to do. Very quickly i realized i had a great start as i was rank 1 in offense power ever since the day 2. Fully concentrated on continuing to build clubs 24/7 and neglected the need of a fast settle. Didn't need much time to realize it was a mistake as i settled my capital later than i would usually do and therefore no good options were left. Also, had to move pretty far away from my spawn, which i also don't prefer usually. That slight mistake in the beginning affected on everything what was to happen later on. My capital progression was delayed, my off village settling was delayed and lastly, my off hammer production was delayed.
Since i am playing here for the first time, i didn't know anyone. I continued to do what i was doing, farming. Raping through the top10 raiders list each week and being accused of botting rather regularly. What people don't know about me is that i am a sporty guy. Being the sporty guy that i am, i am also extremely competitive in everything i do. That, unfortunately for me, translates onto Travian as well. Those top10 raiding lists and overall stats of the offense power is something that got me so addicted to this round due to my competitivenessthat i simply couldn't get away from the PC. The competitive side in me simply didn't allow me to stop. I was farming nearly 24/7 and doing my thing.
It was boring without the ally, without people to talk to, so i started to talk with almost everyone on the server. After some time, i decided to send a message to 67% guys to see if they might want to accept me in their team. Someone from Pete account responded that they're a premade team but that they might take someone from 'outside'. Been few days since then, when Pete responded again and said that after a long discussion with his team, they decided not to take me in due to the fact that they were a premade team and simply playing for fun, which i respected. So, i continued to play, farm and build my hammers. I let the time pass until the situation on our coordinates were more clearer.
At about day 30, i sent a message to PasiKuikka account, checking if they're taking any new players and if they might want/need me. They accepted my application and i joined the PK ally. It was just a few days before artifact releases. That's day 30 guys. Roughly day 30 is when i joined the PK ally and started playing with them. I literally have 0 experience and knowledge on what was going on in PK ally during the 1-30 days. Both, as a player and especially as a leader. Anything that happened or did not happen during that time, has nothing to do with me personally as i wasn't even a part of the ally at that time.
Soon after i joined them, i realized they're a great group of people who i met for the first time. Cool people, funny and talkative but huge mess as an ally. No organization is what's been the main issue. Nothing was happening. No actions, no fighting. Pretty much nothing. We were doing solo actions and fighting our own battles but nothing as a team, as an ally. Nappo as a main leader was doing nothing to make things better so things and problems only pilled up as days went by. For future reference, could Nappo be a good player? Yes. In fact, i think he actually is, although i didn't get to know him that good. But, as a leader, he s*cks big time.
Artifact releases is when i first wanted to give up and leave the ally. As i have already said, great group of people but no organization and no leadership. With the amount of people we had at that time in PK and amount of hammers, we managed to take just a couple of artifacts (same amount as 67% guys who had only 11 players in their ally). Pretty much, none important. At that time, Kanto had about 20 artifacts, 2 small trainers (at some point even 3) and were the first ally to partner with anyone on the server. That was DCA. At that time, they had about 80-90 players combined. Soon after that, DCA recruited some players from M.P.P.P ally, so the total number was close to 100 at that time.
Days go by, problems kept pilling up but at the same time i started being more and more vocal about things, about our problems, about things we need to do. How many times have i said that we need to go in action, only players in our ally knows that... How many times have i said that we need to be proactive and run for some artifacts if we want to compete at the end game... At that time, Nappo made a deal with SA, we partnered with them.
That's the time when Nappo started to ease up a bit and listened to my advice so we did try to get some artifacts, especially a small trainer from DCA but it was nothing that was greatly organized so, obviously, didn't bring the success either. He also listened to my advice that we need to go in action, that we're way too passive so, we went in action against some DCA players. Took down Reek's capital for about 550 population. Again, nothing too serious and still not a lot action going on but hey, Nappo started listening and started doing something, at least. At that time, the only good thing we were doing were defense calls. Anyone attacking us or our artifacts would get walled. That's when i was 100% sure that this team has a potential but need a better leadership to take control of the group and to guide them through this round. I was talking to Lepakkoesa (Nappo's dual and actually the owner of PasiKuikka account) more and more about the ally and about the things that needed to be done asap. Slowly, i guess they realized i could help them with leading and guiding our ally so they promoted me to be a part of the leadership.
In the meantime, Nappo continued to do mistakes and bad calls for our ally so people in the leadership started to lose comprehension for him.
The day that changed everything was about day 50 of the server when Nappo, again, did few mistakes. That's also the day he made a deal with the T&P guys. We tried explaining him why those mistakes were actually mistakes. Trying to explain him and make sure he understands that when in fact, he just acted as a 15 year old immature child, while actually being over 40 years old. After some more explaining, he says something like „ok, i am sorry“ so we thought it's over. We thought he understood what we were trying to explain him so we closed that „case“ and moved forward. But Nappo being Nappo, only 3 hours after that, he made another, crucial mistake. That's when i said it's finally over. It's either him or me as it made no sense anymore to continue to play like that. That's when we kicked him out of our ally. That's when Lepakkoesa changed the password on his account and that's the time when players wanted me to take the lead and take control over the ally. Day 50 guys! Day 50 is when i finally step in as a leader and got the chance to actually help the ally, make calls, make decisions and guide us through. Remember, day 50. We were already allied with SA and T&P at that point, when i took the lead. Still, for some reason, you all keep talking shit about me and put so much hate towards me, for the times where i wasn't even a part of the PK ally, to times where i wasn't even leading them.
As soon as they gave me the permission to make calls and decisions, i got to work. There was shit ton of things that needed to be done as literally nothing has been done for the past 50 days. For example, we had players who didn't even know how to send a fake attack. Those are simple things and yet, all of that is something i had to deal with. I don't complain, don't get me wrong but hell, show some respect. It took me days just to get everything under control and fix things that needed to be fixed. Now, on top of that, add my account that still had to take care off. Only farming itself took about 80% of my daily time. On top of that, add the personal life and personal things i had to take care off. Just for example, my parents were renewing the roof on their house so i went to help them. All that happened in past 3-4 weeks. I was helping them from 7am in the morning up to 5-7pm, depends on a day. Every day for about 10 days. I wasn't even playing at that time. No farming, and, when you see me not farming, you know something is going on There was literally no room for ops at that time.
After all that mess was gone, roof being done and things in our ally finally cleared, that's when we got the opportunity and time to actually plan an action. That's when we went on some DCA players again. That's also when we went on Dragonite's capital etc etc. Why did Kanto decide to fight everyone in the beginning and making them all their enemies? I don't know and therefore i wont discuss about it. It's something they need to talk about between them in the ally. That made them not having partners in the end game as no one wanted to support them due to that. Why did DCA/Kanto fall apart, from 100 players to 50? That's also something i don't know about, at least not 100% and that's why i wont discuss about it. All i know is that it's obviously not our fault for their mistakes in the beginning and DCA/Kanto losing about 50 players, while in the meantime we didn't break and stood together. Could have been other way around. We could have fallen apart if we didn't kick Nappo and they could have stayed together. You never know.
Why did 67% decide to fight Kanto and not us, making it only easier for us to win the round, instead of making it tougher? I don't know, they do. They participated in making this round easier than it should be but yet, they blame us, which makes no sense to me. You either go against us to make things even, or you don't but then you don't talk sh*t about us. From my personal talks with some of their players, they came here to have an easy/no stress round as it's summer, activity is lower than usual and they don't take it seriously. Quote "we rather keep our enemies further away from us so we picked Kanto. Fighting with you would just make it stressful and we just want to lay back and have some fun this round". As i said, i respect everything that anyone does and decides but please, if you're the one who personally influenced the round to be the way it is, don't blame us. You could have chose the other route, fight us and have stressful round but at the same time, making it more even.
As you can see, there's a lot going on in the background that you don't even know of, yet, you kept talking shit to me and about me. You kept putting so much hate towards me for things that i didn't do and couldn't affect on as a player on PK. But hey, i am tough guy, i can handle it If that's what you want to do even after this comment, go for it, i don't mind really. I am not a 15 year old kid who doesn't have a well constructed opinions about everything in life or a kid who you could mess up with all the hate.
Don't forget that i am a solo player on my account and that i didn't have duals. Yet, i managed to do all that by myself. Be a rank 1 raider while raping others almost every week (failed 2 weeks cause of helping parents with the roof). I have put so much time and effort into my account and this ally, trying to do what's best for us but hey, there's not much i could do day 1-50. Actually, i couldn't do anything at that time. Having to put so much time into my account, farming and raping everyone in top10 raiders; taking everything in our ally on my back to make this work, from smallest and simplest things to bigger and more complicated ones; take WW on my back but yet being disrespectful by you guys, only talks about you as individuals and your characters.
This way, i also want to thank everyone in PK/SA/T&P for being so nice to me. I don't want to point out anyone personally as that would be very rude from me. Thank you for being great people who made my last 50 days a fun and great experience overall! Thank you for being so cooperative and making my job easier! Thanks to other players in the leadership for helping me out as well! Thank you for being great team players and lastly, thank you for teaching me the most important Finnish word. Perkele!!!
Last thing i want to say to everyone outside PK/SA/T&P is that you didn't get to know the real me. If you think you know the real me just by reading some forum comments, then you're wrong. Forum serves to troll and tease everyone, at least to me it does. Just because i wrote some cocky and douchy comment on here to tease you, doesn't mean that's the real me. Only people in our ally got the know the real me, my real personality. Feel free to ask them who i am as a player and as a person
You don't have to like me but you gotta respect me. If for nothing else, then for the time and effort i have put into this account and ally.
Love you all. Peace to everyone and, may we meet again!
