  1. For anyone sees this anytime in the future... LO1 is probably the best alliance in terms of generous donations towards the Watch Signal. Anyone who plays the game for a considerable time knows how important it is to have maxed-out troops in the WS. So, in this regard, the current emperor @Byzantiquitus and the lords, for ex, @titoqan are doing excellent job. Of course, there are others who donate regularly. But, @Byzantiquitus tops the list. I am one of the players in LO1 (as of this writing). I am bit unhappy with some recent developments in LO1. So, I might move away at any time in the future. However, IMO, LO1 could easily become a better alliance, if they followed certain principles. Lordship should have been given only to those who deserve it. No active involvement means no lordship. Chat is almost always dead. I had to bring in the conversations multiple times. None of you have no idea how much I tried to make the chat a bit more active. Currently, only @titoqan and Prashant are active. I remember lordship was given away to multiple players at once. It actually happened around the time when a guy donated low-level troops and no lord was online to kick him out. Or it happened around the time when a high-crown player left without a reason. However, the lordships could have been given one or two at a time, probably per season, after evaluating the activeness of the players. Among the deserving lords, the emperorship should have been rotated. Shackler, Player272, mumthinks, @titoqan, Prashant, sleezly, to name a few. At one point, Shackler was about become an emperor. (even though, he would be just as good as StarBeast; a hyperactive guy with little understanding of the leadership; he just kicks out people out of frustration). Anyway, after several weeks, when he understood that he can't become an emperor, he became silent in the chats and there has been zero contribution towards WS donations from him these days. He was an active donor in the past. There is always going to change. Change is the only thing that doesn't change. When I was actively recruiting, I proposed a solution to decrease the inactive days before someone kicked out (of inactivity) to 7 days and proposed another solution to have a minimum crown of 100 crowns. Even though, this idea was accepted by a couple of players, the emperor @Byzantiquitus, never implemented it by actually posting the rules in the "alliance description". We can't tell each newbie that the actual rules are different from what is published in the "alliance description". We could have updated the description depending on how frequently we get the new players. When we get a lot of new players, we can toughen the requirements. When we don't get any players for a couple of seasons, we can lessen the requirements. It takes less time to update the description than finding a suitable battle! I still remember the day when @titoqan asked what is meant "inactivity". I said "just logging in (irrespective of the attacks)". Because, we hardly had any new players joining at that time! Recently when someone contacted me via the official AOE:CS forum, I told him to attack at least 4 times per week. Or be ready to be in line to be kicked out. He said it is fair enough. Basically, flexibility in updating the rules depending on activity level of the players could have improved LO1 to be a better alliance! Running out of time! Will update it later if / when I get time!
  2. Yep. I noticed it too. Happy with your current position (at the top of the league). Congrats, BBQ and everyone involved! It's true of every alliance. So, LO1 is no different. We always have players becoming inactive by the end of the season. I simply bring in newbies at that time using one of my alt accounts and using the recruitment thread in the official forum. However, I have been unhappy lately with some latest developments in LO1. So, I am slowing things down with respect to my involvement in there. Also, I am spending more time at work. So, can't do recruitment as earlier. So, basically, anyone is welcome to join. As of this writing, there is a vacant spot in LO1. There are two persons who are in line to be kicked out. So, actually three. The season ends in a couple of days. So, we could easily make up another couple of vacancies in it. Please always consult with the emperor ( @Byzantiquitus ) of LO1. I am not the emperor. I was just handling the recruitment actively. Now, my castle is moved to age 9. Soon, I will be in a position to help with troop donations for WS for most players. Generous troop donations is what I liked the most in LO1. Btw, my castle is up for grab by any alliance. Any other LOs interested? About me: Gamer tag: TinyWP Attack style: Casual. Tries out different attack styles. Attack frequency: Average of 1 battle a day (not including defensive battles ) A talkative player. Tries to help others. I learn all the time. Just learned a lesson on how to do a ram rush with minimal troops and why it is an important skill. I love to share what I learned. Good luck to all!
  3. Sorry, but we don't need any low crown (and generally inactive) members. We have been almost full for several weeks. As we get new active member, we kick out the least inactive member. That's how things are in LO1 so far. @Byzantiquitus As the emperor of LO1, I'd go with your decision on this.
  4. @Byzantiquitus When we make an aggressive player (or a player with the highest crowns) as emperor, it gives a false sense of feeling that anyone can become emperor just using crowns. It can also lead to bad leadership. As a person who has multiple alt accounts, I have seen a lot of emperors losing their (die-hard) lords due to their attitude towards other players and lords. In one alliance, the other lords (and nobles) formed a similar alliance (with the same name) and then went on to overcome the original alliance in terms of overall crown count. I think it is "Indian Emperors 5" or "United India 5". You deserve the emperorship. You have done some unique things (such as switching tasks regularly) that helped to speed up the overall progress of our alliance. But, if you think you need a break, consider @titoqan for emperorship. Please never make that short-tempered lord as emperor.
  5. I joined LO2 around June too (now in LO1). @kaptainkronic93 was (and still is) one of my inspirations to join LO in general. How are the things in LO2 now?
  6. Now, @titoqan is one of the active donors in LO1. How much he has progressed! Wow!
  7. Combination of both. Earlier, I was active recruiting in AOE:CS forum. Then PinkCube has taken over. As mentioned in another thread here, we created a sense of urgency to join us. Once, we had over 30 inactive players. Our active donors, ex: @Byzantiquitus, were bit frustrated with inactive players, because they even spent gold to donate to WS. One of our lords even kicked out players at random (out of frustration). Then, we agreed that all inactives should go. Then, we had a long term plan. We recruited the lower age players who were filled in just to replace the inactive players. They are happy with high level troops in WS, even though, they are hardly attacked in low ages. They also enjoyed the (completed) wonder tasks. Then, we slowly removed the inactives among the new players. We always kept our head count to 48+ all the time to make the plan a bit more effectively. Next step in the plan is to kick out anyone less than 100 crown count, unless they are super-active (and can get past 100 crowns in a few days). Our obvious next step is to kick out anyone less than 300 crowns. However, we are yet to go there. Then 500 crowns, then 1k crowns. We may not achieve this in a month or in a year. Just sharing what we planned. We can never predict the future. Thanks @starbeast007. Yes, as mentioned already, most of our players are new to AOE:CS and some can't even learn from their attacks (or from their defensive loses). I can help reviving LO2, if it is dead. I was originally destined for LO2!

    Sorry for going off-topic. Every alliance (even those in the leaderboard) is going to suffer from inactives at some point. That's why it is important to give space for new players (even those who start from Age 1). We have been recruiting new players for the past couple of months or so and it's been working well so far. Some of them became good attackers and are in age 7+ now, with a reasonable crown count. Having such players isn't going to cost anything for an alliance (such as troop donations towards the Watch Signal, because they don't get attacked as often as age 8+ players). We always maintain 48+ players in the alliance so that it gives a sense of urgency for new players to join. Every league, we do see a lot of players going out voluntarily and then some joining in their place. It's been fun brining up new players. We learn a bit from them too.
  9. @Byzantiquitus Seems we will be active again here, especially after Age X shows up in less than a week!
  10. I am one of the previous emperors of LO1 (taken over by accident from @starbeast007). Initially, I was with LO2. StarBeast requested a few people to help LO1. So, went to where I am now. I do wish to see the old guys (and girls) back in action. We do have a bunch of inactive players who have been with us for long that makes us hard to kick them out considering the crowns they have. Fortunately, we are full at the moment with a lot of age 3/4/5/6 players joined lately.
