  1. Agreed that the donation rules need to be updated. I think we have enough players in Age 9 and 10 with maxed cultural troops that we may be able to limit donations from players Age 8 and below. Even though defense is terribly broken, having max level troops in watch signals at least helps to move the needle to help turn potential 2-star losses into 1-stars. We also need to determine how we want to handle lordship. In the past, it's been similar to how LO3 handles it where players who are active in chat and play more are nominated by an existing Lord or the Emperor and then people can weigh in. There's also the argument for making all members Lords as it enables anyone to send invites if there's a player in their league that doesn't have an alliance. I feel like it would be best to discuss these things in chat so we get a better dialog going than spread out messages on a forum can provide. I know we've got players spread out all over the place so I'm not sure if/when there would be a good time to try and plan this.
  2. Looks like it's a two horse race now for 1st. We've got 500 crowns on Deutschland III as of writing this post. Just gotta pile on a few more crowns to make the lead more comfortable.
  3. Yeah, LPAD pulling both accounts and Sasuke going... sightseeing? dropped us around 3k crowns. We can still manage top 3 but getting to the #1 spot is going to be that much harder now. Hopefully I can find some good whales and get up over 6k before the season is over.
  4. Sure it does. It lets us know how many people have seen the poll and voted on it. If we didn't have that, someone could assume that the 36 members that didn't vote saw the poll and didn't feel strongly for either option but with it there, we just know that they didn't look at the poll.
  5. I don't care so much about crowns but having players that actively engage in chat is important for helping an alliance feel "alive". Chatting is my preferred way to pass the time between attacks while my troops train back up so having players who are more interactive is a bigger plus to me than crown counts.
  6. Looks like the current consensus by a 3-2 vote is to try to win this season of league before the merger. I'll do my best to pile on some crowns to help the effort. Hopefully I can get lucky and find some nice whales to gain some big chunks. Giz and I have already cleared a lot of space by kicking inactive players from LO4 but we still don't have quite enough room for all of LO3 to move there. I know a few players have already stated they'd like to remain in LO3 and keep it going but we may have some growing pains trying to get 50 into one alliance. There are currently 33 spots open in LO4 (after you factor out my alt) and 43 members in LO3. Figuring out what's going to happen with the 10 extra is going to be the hard part. There's already one player who is actively logging in at LO4 but hasn't attacked in 34 days that we may kick to free up a slot for someone who attacks. I'll keep everyone posted as I hope between the alliances to help coordinate.
  7. Putting together a poll to get a better feel for what the members of LO3 want to do for this season of league. Please cast your vote.
  8. LO4 just finished Poison the Well so the only things left to go are Kizhi level 2, Advanced Scouting, Sound the Alarm, and Expropriation (although I'm not sure why you'd even want to bother with that one).
  9. So I just did a little recon work and it looks like LO2 is at the following state with wonders: Complete: Brace the Walls Trade Envoy Advanced Scouting Raise the Colors Poison the Well Reserve Force In Progress: Sound the Alarm (57% complete. Still needs 57,550,000 food donated and 1,589 trebuchet emplacements destroyed) Basilica of San Vitale level 2 (appears to be about 70% complete. I can't see the task breakdown without it being the active wonder but I'm guessing the remaining effort is all in stone donations so I would approximate about 20,000,000 more stone needed to complete it) Not Started: Expansion Expropriation LO4 should be done with Poison the Well by the end of the month so the only difference in completed wonders will be that LO4 has Expansion and LO2 has Advanced Scouting. Having spent a couple seasons of league over in GOP who has all of the wonders unlocked, I played around with them and I think the best ones to have on constantly are Brace the Walls, Expansion, and Reserve Force. Expansion is nice as it seems to have had a significant boost to our donations on Poison the Well due to the additional resources being produced. It seems like Kaptain isn't very active anymore as his last attack was more than 17 days ago even though he's logged in since. He's also handed off the title of Emperor to DioptricHawk089 but Dioptric seems to be out for the week judging by what I saw in chat. We can try to iron out the details with him after he gets back from whatever it is that he's gone for.
  10. I guess I'll pick up where I left off in the branch of the thread on the leadership forum. One of the main considerations to make for consolidating is the progress made on wonders in the various branches. Here's a breakdown of the progress LO4 has made: Complete: Brace the Walls Trade Envoy Expansion Raise the Colors Reserve Force In Progress: Poison the Well (95% done, just needs an additional 10,800,000 in wood donations to be complete) Kizhi Pogost level 2 (has the stars requirement complete for attacking but still needs most of the 112,000,000 wood donations) Not Started: Advanced Scouting Sound the Alarm Expropriation Also, if we're trying to get The Leftovers back together into one more active group of players, I could try and pop over to Castle Guardian and see if Bert and Brag would be willing to come back but I'm not really clear on what prompted them to leave to begin with.
  11. I think if we're going to have a discussion on this, we need to have a centralized thread on the main forum page instead of 5 different ones in the sub-forums. Starbeast, could you create that thread and update all of the other ones you made to link to that one?

  13. Edited the original post with some info about LO5. Heading to bed now. I'll check back in later this week since people are actually using the forums again.
  14. What about LO5? Even though it didn't last long, it's still part of the history of the alliance and it helped serve as a lesson not to overextend our reach when branching out.
  15. Hey, Goofy. Long time, no see. I can't speak on behalf of the other LO branches but I know LO4 has still been chugging away working on wonders while the amount of chatting has died off. We're 9 food donations away from finishing Expansion and 122 wood donations away from wrapping up Poison the Well. As for leagues, we haven't really done much as an alliance after dropping crowns intentionally for one season below 45k and completely destroying the competition in a Champion league. There haven't really been any developments in the leadership team since attendance was so dismal for the meetings. Mike talked a few of us into heading over to GoP for a few seasons of league to help them push for the top of the leaderboard. It was fun but exhausting to try and keep my crowns over 7k for an extended period of time. I don't know how Gizmo/Bailey manages it on multiple accounts. Mike was still somewhat active for a while after his retirement but I think he's mostly just playing casually for now. As for me, I haven't actually been trying to gain crowns for a month or so now, just resources to help with wonder donations. The crowns I have are just a side-effect from those attacks.
