It's hard not to take the game seriously sometimes, especially when you'e the one leading an alliance.
It's pretty jacked up.
People spy on your members, you don't know who, you get all mad and be hatin (that's what they're saying these days right? "be hatin"?).
Or if you're in TE, someone declares war on your alliance, it seems like their whole AA is bigger than your AA, when in reality it's a pretty fair fight.
Alright, I'll rant about TE.
I decided to co-lead with Jarhead this round, with my goal of taking LE back into it's roots, which was simple 1v1 wars, well coordinated, with people we like to fight.
I wanted to fight RE, I like ADude and Stelios, and it's been a while since we've blitzed RE (hasn't it? I think it has, I know we fought last round, but I wanted to hit you guys this round).
Instead, what happens?
Duckroll comes in and hits us with a mid-day blitz on day 3.
The soonest I've ever seen someone fight (I think) was day 7. Day 3, I didn't even have a single plane on day 3, I was still buying improvements.
If you've ever played TE, you can imagine the little drop of sadness that sang through my heart when I saw 27/28 of our AA in anarchy. We couldn't even counter-blitz because we only had 1 nation able to go offensive.
ok ok. Yes. I agree people will play the game how they want, and yeah, I do agree we hit Anon early last round. Here's a difference for you!
Anon + SUN vs OP + LE was a fair fight, the numbers were fine, and we gave Anon enough time to actually be able to build.
LE vs DR.
Day 3. I had 2 members at 3NS, so I'll say our nation count was 26nations.
Duckroll... had, what was it? +35 nations? almost a 10 nation advantage, on an alliance that hadn't even gotten a chance to complete their nation build.
I see the resemblance, I really do!
It's one thing for the community to complain about LE being unfair, they're entitled to their opinions, like everyone else. However, what bothers me is the inconsistency of complaints and dislikes. If LE had pulled a move like this, no doubt RE, Syn, tW, TPC, and DR would have cried OUTRAGE and been bashing us on the OWF.
Who's doing that to DR?
Not even OP, what is happening..
Maybe it's because Confusion doesn't even try to hide the fact that he's a jerk (sorry man, just calling it like it is), I'd hate to believe the community is sitting back in their seats going "well that was a Dbag move but... it was funny.. soo.. I won't complain about it."
Also preempt on the "You guys declared on everyone while they were at war at the end of last round".
Yeah we did. What's it they say? "Deal with it" ?
LE wanted to make whoever wanted the flag really work for it, and we did that to the best of our ability, too bad those 3 Anon slipped through (Anon, who we supossedly hit with a Cheap-shot at the beginning of the round, maybe we should've been cheaper, eh? ).
If there's anything useful about CN I've ever learned, it's that "fair" doesn't exist, and yes, I'll have to deal with it.
but I don't get it when people say, "color me purple"
