  • Can everyone also remember the contexts behind each post? And stop cherry picking sentences that you want to answer?


    We are not complaining about the broken NAP. Jeez, its nothing new. All we are mad about is we didnt prepare for it and the betrayal was unexpected.


    We are not running away. Tired of saying this over and over again.


    Anyone who keeps talking about us having more members than IKEA, Yeah thats why we are still where we are and we still have accounts close to the IKEA front. Because our players are going hard for making sure we are capable of handling this situation. We are handling this situation.


    When I said GOATs have no techs, I also said I know of only 2 players who have been vocal about using them. To anyone saying "BuT YeAAH Your Mother MaKEs UP foR eveRyOne wItH hiS TECHS" .... NO. You peon. If one guy in your alliance is using techs to make his hammer doesnt mean you magically get the resources he is raiding. Unfortunately this game is not socialist. Otherwise your argument would have been valid. Want proof, just check how much Your Mother is raiding and how much the entire GOATZ is raiding. Check how much GOATS is raiding. And dont tell me we dont know how to farm. Everyone here will agree raiding on this server is sh*t.


    To AFK, I am not even 30 years old damn. I agree with your reasoning that life changes and bla bla bla.. knew that without being as old as you are. But comparing real life with travian just shows where your priorities lie. When I said, I dont want to learn techs, it was because I dont want to waste any more time and money on a "game" than I already do and damn do I need to cut that down. Post graduation is hard ffs. There is a reason why we havent launched on you yet. Like I said, after scouting all of you and looking at how you are placed on the map and which villages you attack, I can infer a few things and one of them is, we dont have to attack you right now. Also, I am CWL :) I remember a few things about how CWL operated. This is not CWL. This is GOATS.


    I never complained about this being unfair. I said it is pointless to go up against this new way of playing of travian if I am myself not willing to adopt it in my game play. I am not stopping anyone from using techs. If anything, before this server started I had tried to get as much info as I can gather about using techs and try to get GOATs to use them. No one wants to, and clearly I couldnt come close to understanding how much techs can be abused. This level of teching however has disillusioned me and convinced me that this is not for me.


    Anze, better if you keep spending money on your account and stop using your.. whatever it is you call is your logic.


    GUNNERS has literally 200+ players who havent done anything but SIM. Are you telling me it is not an advantage? Are you so incompetent that you dont realize how much that helps your case? I dont get why you talk about everyone else not having a NAP like NE does as if its something calculated? Dude, why dont you NAP with IKEA then? XD

    When I say, GUNNERS have the best chances of winning in the current situation, you conveniently ignore the last words, or sometimes the context behind when I say that, and that is, if status quo is maintained. When you are forecasting based on some new changes, you compare it with the baseline projection. Baseline projection here is GUNNERS have a small advantage that is hard for others to match at this instant. So when some members of GOATS went end game is useless in their initial shock, it was based on how the situation looked at that instant.


    No one knows what the future holds. We shall see.

  • Doesn't count as you did it on TEN. duh !

  • I am not stopping anyone from using techs. If anything, before this server started I had tried to get as much info as I can gather about using techs and try to get GOATs to use them.


    I was in a similar boat and realised this server was going to be a bit of different then last when I did some early research.


    You probably don’t realise this or would believe me if I told you but I was actually one of the strongest advocates against tech use, however as my attempts to highlight the exploits to tg fell on deaf ears and I could see how the development of techs was moving from tourney to .com I began to understand how the game has changed and like you I stopped discouraging it realising it’s use had even become a necessity. So I began pitching to tg requesting a tech guide.


    It’s no secret every alliance uses them, you say Goats don’t use them when we both know it was condoned and encouraged by it’s leader Brezzok, then it became one of the only two that you mentioned of techs you know of.


    I wouldn’t be surprised if there were quite a number of tech using goats you aren’t aware of.. Did you know chocolate was an alliance that Peter brought over to tech for the goat alliance too?


    You don’t have to answer that, Wether it’s one two or twenty two, point is no team is without them trying to hide or downplay it’s use doesn’t change that, it’s been very much incoperated in the game for awhile now and is only becoming more prevalent.


    I’ll leave it here for now, there is a lot in your post to respond too, that I’ll address in time still very early on in the piece and don’t have time atm for too much of a word wall.


    No one knows what the future holds. We shall see.


    Agreed and I wouldn’t write the goats off for a second, goats are pretty well equipped to adapt just look at this guy almost defying gravity, I’ve seen goats do this before many times ;)

  • N00b post alert!!

    Well I can see that things havn't changed much over the past X years...

    I have a suggestions to all you Big Boss leaders... If your players are using Tech, kick em... (if you as leader use them, shame on you, you absolute moron .. You are showing new/smallers player that you condole the use of them)
    End of story.. the past 10 years Y'll been complaining about the same thing.. first it was the introduction of T4, with Hero inventory, then it was sending ress to farms, now it's the use of Tech accounts...

    If YOU leaders, show that you wont accept that your players are using Tech account's then you have nothing to worry about.. We all know that WE only use them cuz THEY do... Grow up ppl...

    And tbh... I know that ALL of you guy's at some point have bended the rules just a wee bit, so stop crying, and prove you can play this game...

    My grandmom also cheats when se is doing her solitary with a deck of cards... she makes the cabal work EVERY time, she dosn't cheat, she just looks through the deck of cards, and sometimes rearrange them a wee bit... :rofl:
    Like her a 95 year old woman, tell your self your a winner ;o)

  • Too good not to share, credit to Saravan :)


    Gow/wow launched an op against Duet, targeting some feeders, the cap JackSparrow went after was walled, around 60k or top 26 hammer lost well played Duet,

    I know it.

    I had to manage the techs stuff for GOATS in recent times as we didnt know how to play alongside techers and some techs were being targeted for catting and clearing as no one knew they were someone's techs.

    So yeah, I know exactly how many are using techs and what those techs are. :)


    While taking this decision to integrate techs into GOATS, I also ended up alienating a couple of friends who were staunchly against the use of techs. As I said, I dont use techs and I wont, not because "its unfair" or "morally incorrect", I wont because I simply am not interested.

    We had few dropouts before server started, older players that just could not live with the idea of not being able to achieve top ranks without teching. I understand how they felt, but like some others I was also really tempted of the idea of bringing techs in. For us techs are not just some private farms or 2nd class players. They are on the same line with the rest, but with different kind of goals and a bit looser requirements from the management. Personally, I enjoy a lot that I could bring old friends of mine that would not have had the time nor interested to play proper main to tech for me. Planning the techs and how to use them together, how they fit into mains plans, but also into bigger picture of our alliance. Having techs can offer you a lot. And playing without techs does not make me think any lesser of you, I respect your stand and decisions. But just wanted to give a bit more context for this conversation. Techs are here to stay most likely so why not embrace it and find aspects you can Personally enjoy. It takes time for sure and it is something completely New for majority of the playerbase, but I don't see it only as a bad thing. People talk so much about the negative sides and effects and seem to completely forget that there is something good In this aswell.


    And to avoid this turning into teching conversation. We create an image, an opinion of you (GOATS) from what you write In here, discord, via angry igm's and reactions to certain events. We read between lines and feel the tone. That is why People behave like they do towards you. And because I believe you have a lot to offer I really hope to see the tone change. I believe part of you have moved on and you are already looking into future, but at the same time part of you is holding back not letting go of what happened. You need some strong leading during these times. Motivate your People and change the image that People have right now. And I truly believe you can do it! :)

    No matter what anyone said or says, I think you know that we have moved on. You know we are involved in this fight. I believe the numbers and our actions on the server are enough to let anyone know we arent done and we love this fight. We havent attacked you because.. reasons. Cant start talking our strategy here, now can I?

    And a little of bit of bitching to blow off steam never hurt anyone. But some trolls on the discord chat only want to.. well.. troll. The bitching provides good material for them. It is to those trolls I insult and ask not to talk here on the forum.

    Some very good points Brother Bulldozer, and tech support of course is not against the rules anymore, interestingly it’s only behind public eyes where it’s widely encouraged and supported by alliance leaders, publicly it has to be addressed very differently and it’s very baaad.


    Most teams use the same or similar methods then complain when other teams are able to do it a lot better, it can be hard for ill equipped alliances, but to become the best you need to be prepared to face off against all odds even ultimate champions.


    becoming the number one and number two alliance didn’t happen over night, consider the unprecedented coordination of duat or the fierceness of Ikea, as well as the colossal hammers of dnd. It takes all the ingredients and the right combination of dedication and leadership on such a scale that can only be answered by expert specialists that have spent years under extraordinarily strenuous tutelage from the legendary masters of Travian.


    So often it’s the same old story of Players that think they are good enough but are often blinded by ego letting it get in the way of reaching their full potential, actually 99% of the time It’s never been a case of players not playing by the rules, rather a case of coming up against teams much better prepared with more skill ;)

    Don't forget the immaculate simming of Gunners, the silver loaded coffers of GoW (what are those animal farms, Orwell would be proud), the Viet Cong like style of 2.01 or Goats for their ability to bully Drömsäck! We're all equals here :peepolove:

  • Good morning, ladies and gentlemen! Today a new concept will be revealed, when IKEA expands their brand to the side of entertainment, focusing especially on music and poetry.


    Without further ado, the pick of the day is Billy Joel's timeless classic Piano Man, which most if not all of you surely recognize as a melancholic melody from the shadows of midtown bars. For sing-along enthusiasts, the actual song is provided below the rewritten lyrics.


    It's 3 AM on a Saturday

    the IKEA ops landing in

    TEN's def coords sitting at PCs

    slamming their desks and crying


    They say, "AFK, can you give us a reasoning

    we don't wanna be your foes

    but yet, there you are,

    bringing in the war,

    when did we step on your toes?"


    (Chorus)

    Leave us alone, filthy furniture

    we have done you no harm

    we just wanted to sim peacefully

    and now you are making us farms


    Now Tonzo at the chat is a friend of none

    he calls everyone with names

    and he's quick to part, or to make a brainfart,

    but there's no place that he'd rather be


    He says, "vilhou, gypsies are masterrace"

    as his fingers flew on the keys

    "Well, I'm sure that I could be an EXPEDIT

    if I had been born in Västervik"


    Now Mist4 is TEN's voice of clarity

    who never had time for a wife

    alongside with Heverton, another one that's point-on,

    they make TEN seem alright


    And the Indians are discussing politics

    like what should be done with Kashmir?

    Yes, they're fighting with China and armchairs

    when will the zerging begin?


    Leave us alone, filthy furniture

    we have done you no harm

    we just wanted to sim peacefully

    and now you are making us farms


    It's a pretty chill morning in South-East

    And Anze gives drawers a smile

    'cause he knows that it's cushion dealing destruction

    to hinder the Empire for a while


    And the stuffed toys ram in like predators

    and the meatballs come in with sauce

    and TEN is watching the wreck, thinking "why the heck"

    and ask "AFK, you're doing this because?"


    Leave us alone, filthy furniture

    we have done you no harm

    we just wanted to sim peacefully

    and now you are making us farms

    We missed his entire hammer. The troop numbers were a lot different too. Need to find where he is parking his rams and catas.. Clubs were probably out raiding?

  • Ultimate Warriors First strike!


    Operation: Modus operandi Elitus


    First off congratulations to Gunners on a most successful operation, we salute our brave generals and leaders. This operation was forged by hands of steel, unwavering , unmatched and undefeated.


    Many thought that Gunners were just super simmers, a one trick pony one that would lay in wait to be attacked first. Instead this team of glorious warriors has stood steadfast, with guns unholstered aimed directly at Gow heads!


    In an epic showdown of historical proportions, our old rivals Gow were left gobsmacked, Gunners launched in to the night reaching the far depths of the NW quadrant, resulting in a total of 8 capitals that were left decimated, 7 of which left without crop fields, one remains partially recovered, as gow did manage to wall one of the Gunners hammers sent.

  • THE ULTIMATE WARRIORS!!!!!!!4!4!4!4!!4!4!4!

  • Yo Bat Man you forgot to mention the 30k druids Hera killed, absolute win for Gunners, just opening the way for your brothers in arms Duat.

  • THE ULTIMATE WARRIORS!


    You said it Sheldon! tackling the gods of war from such a distance was never going to be an easy task, Gunners may have made it look simple but it was only with so much planning that went beyond the scenes that made this such a successful attack.


    Under immense pressure gow we’re still able catch a hammer, Gunners will need to be more careful next time, especially if there to avoid Gow’s innovative defense moves.

    Realising Gow may not be in a position to defend every target. Gow instead decided to implement a new kind of strategy pioneering their very own operation vacation mode.


    It was a resounding success, some of the ultimate warriors targets then found themselves with temporary immunity from receiving any attack at all!


    Hammers were held back, Gow may have only caught one hammer, but it’s possible the damage they also prevented was far greater by using, the vacation mode manoeuvre.


    Gunners will need to be ready for such a manoeuvre in their next operation, perhaps a multi tiered, more layered approach will be needed to counter such a vacai mode tactic ?


    Needless to say the warrior elites will need to stay on there toes and be prepared pull out all the stops, if they are to continue to overcome Gow’s defense technicians!

  • So


    2.01 -> TEN

    DnD -> Ignores Gunners, IKEA and Duat to hit TEN boonies

    GUNNERS -> Ignores Duat in grey, DnD next to them and hits GoW boonies

    IKEA -> Only finds GOATS and TEN to balance the server. Ignores Duat practically in their territory and ignores DnD and Gunners in grey.


    But, 2.01, DnD, GUNNERS and IKEA dont attack each other and no one even talks about Duat.


    Very interesting. Very very interesting.


    GoW -> Two metas falling on them

    TEN -> Fighting three at once!


    Okay so I can see where this is going..
