I write this message at a loss. My friends and I have recently started playing this game, very late to the party it would seem. We formed a small alliance, and kept to ourselves. We've busied ourselves with learning the mechanics and with building up our resources.
We've had some minor skirmishes, which I'm proud to say we came out on top of more often than not. When attacked, we would strike back once and let that be the end of it.
Recently, we find ourselves at the mercy of a group calling itself 'The Dread Network'. Within the past 24 hours, we have been attacked over 9 times by three different alliances belonging to this Dread Network. Their goal seems to be to capture our two shiny Outposts.
We have done nothing to provoke them, simply defended ourselves in the past when their members attacked us. But today, 'Dreaded Knights' declared war upon us, and when I inquired as to why, I was simply told "You've been targeted by the Dread Network."
I inquired with the then-leader of AoD Dread, Lord Npherno, and was told that if we surrendered our Outpost, that would be the end of hostilities.
These people are all level 31+ (a lot of them in the higher numbers), our highest member is level 21.
We cannot stand against their aggression, but to let them just simply take our Outposts we've worked on for weeks seems like utter failure.
So what options do we have? It seems like the best course of action would be to quit this game and never look back. Is this really how this game treats new players? Jumped on by multiple players all with a massive level advantage? This is 'fun'?
I know that a war game is by its very nature 'war'. But this is also a game, and a game is only fun if the war is balanced. Right now, it doesn't seem very balanced at all.
If anyone would have any suggestions to save Four Lights from the cold night of apathy, I'd be welcome to hear them.

Sorry if I was unclear, we've been attacked 9 times today. Most of the attacks have been from 'AoD Dread', though two or three attacks came from one of their affiliates, Ikon. Finally, one of their member alliances, Dreaded Knights, declared war on us after I refused to hand over one of our Outposts when 'asked' by Lord Npherno. (Asking involved him saying "Give it to us or we'll take it.")
I asked Lady1Nonly, the person who declared war, why we were suddenly at war, and was told that she was directed to declare war by Lord Npherno, who had 'targeted' us.
Our Alliance has three members, levels 16-21.
Dreaded Knights (1 Attack) has 12 members, levels 21-29.
AoD Dread has (5 attacks) has 22-23 members, levels 29-55.
Ikon. (3 attacks) has 10 members, levels 17-30.
maybe as a bargaining tool ask for help to build a new one
when i was ur level and got mass attacked i seeked help and was told "if u cant beat them, join them" here is always an opportunity option that mite play as ur best card
Alliance: Army Of Darkness
Location: USA 1
I'm pretty much making them look bad, because by the time i've been mass attacked, their support is still hours away.
I've being attacked just before i can build a defense, and rebuild, by three lower players at a time,
and (at least) once a week by a high player, to make sure i'm on my knees....

A few have messaged me indicating that I should take it up to the head of their mega-alliance. I've questioned a few people in AoD Dread and Dreaded Knights, and everyone I've talked to has referred me back to Lord Npherno as the one in charge.
Thus far we've managed to repel the attempts to capture our outposts, at the sacrifice of our main castles taking a drumming.
I've had a few people indicate they were speaking up on our behalf, and I can only hope that has a calming effect.
Leader AoD Dread
Branch of Army of Darkness
Let's go over the timeline, NPherno:
We awake Sunday morning to multiple attacks inbound on our castles and outposts. Some from Ikon., some from AoD Dread. In your defense, the Ikon. ones may have been coincidence, one of their members claimed as such.
So there were approximately 2 or 3 attacks from Ikon. on our castles, and if I'm recalling correctly, one large attack at our Outpost from AoD Dread. After that attack launched, a capture attack was sent.
At *that* point I asked you what was going on in an attempt to broker peace.
You gave me the aforementioned 'ultimatum', "Give me your outpost or we'll take it."
When I pointed out to you that this was a bullying tactic, you responded it wasn't bullying, bullying would be having us targeted by the 'dread network'. "Now will you give it to us, or will we take it?"
When I refused to hand over an Outpost that *we started* from the ground up, you *then* had Dreaded Knights declare war upon us.
Even now, after we've repelled multiple attempts at capturing now *two* of our outposts, you're now sending a 300+ attack force at one of our Outposts because 'You need it for our war strat'.
TL;DR? You attacked. We repelled. You offered a bribe, we refused, and you've launched relentless assaults on us.
You're level 55, and you're trying to claim you're 'playing fair' by sending a large force at one of our Outposts? You should be ashamed of yourself.
Cold Fury, contact this guy. It generally works better going to the top instead of posting on the forums. Often times that causes retalitation attacks which might be what you are talking about now.

LOL!! That's just dirty. The OP is apparently not built up and has no ruby buildings. I'm guessing Dread wants it for being a shiny food or it's location. Razing it would not deter them I'm guessing.
Npherno is in charge of AoD Dread, a branch of the Army of Darkness. Confuzzion is the overall leader of AoD. Perhaps he can broker some sort of peace agreement.

You are correct this is a war game and unfortunately
like the real world there are bullies. So my advice to you is to seek assistance from the bigger alliances. I dunno about USA1 but in EN1 most of the leaders of the big alliances ie The Dark Union, BSK, ect are quite honourable guys and bullying is frowned upon by these guys. So write to some of the big boyz and explain your predicament and you may find they are willing to help.
