Time for an explaination of why DnD are dumping Alchs rv's.
Yes its against fair play rules and no we are not proud to be doing it. We are however PROUD that we are at least standing up to them.
A couple of weeks ago Stu smashed one of our players who had the audacity to ask why he did that. The answer was "cause I can" "if you don't get a better defense I will continual to hit you"
Am impossible task in one day but that didn't stop Stu who revisited the next day not once but 3 Op's and the main again. Our player was upset and sent him a nasty message which was personal but in the heat of the moment understandable.
There were then a total of 10 hits on our player before he could get a bird on to try to understand what was happening. Then the threats from Stu started he was going to hit everyone in our alliance because of it.
Fast forward a couple of days and we are told he wants an apology from Baz and Ram. Our guys weren't too keen to apologise after all its only words they don't really hurt but smashing defenceless players is another matter. The apology didn't happen so Stu started hitting again. So Baz and Ram thought if he wants some words to stop him then they will send them. Then both posted in our chat how much they hated doing it with Ram even saying it made him vomit. Surprise!!!!! Stu has a spy in our ranks and has been receiving our messages and chats. Thats right King Josh 1st was trying to save his bacon by passing on our info (he is all yours now Metal). Can't really understand why he needed a spy in our alliance as we are ranked 22 and they are 2, surely there are other alliances they should be concerned with.
But this was when Alchs declared WAR on us and it wasn't just Stu alone this time a few others joined in. They are all 5 or 6 wave players with many Legendary 800 and we might have 4 players with 5 waves, sounds a fair fight hey...
I will say that at this stage not all Alchs joined in and at the time I thought that was an honorable thing to do but on looking back they also did nothing to stop what was happening. We have no hope of defending against their comm's and troops so it wasn't long before we were burning everywhere. We were also told that from now on we will be their looting alliance. Alchs have stated to us they don't believe there is any difference between a level 70 legendary 800 and a level 70 legendary 1, they seem to think that's fair to hit someone hundreds of legendary levels below them??? At this stage Ram decided to send a full apology explaining exactly what was going on in his life at the time and was even prepared to prove it with documentation if need be. Here is a copy of the message Ram sent to Stu and its been re-posted here with his consent...
once last effort at peace pls
i truly am sorry for the words and tone i used -- i had reasons but no excuse - i really am 68yrs old and have terminal bone cancer, and had a stemcell transplant in Dec - within the following 100 days it is either recovery or death -- i passed the days then had a relapse, which meant a heap of chemo agn- which is when u hit me -- also during this time we had a restored headstone done for my dead stepson who lies with his biological father in Freo Cemetery -- quite traumatic and emotional times
they are the reasons -- i hit back with words and tone that was totally inappropriate and i realise now would be construed as hurtful to you
I am appealing to your sense of honour and strength as i believe u are a respected senior member of your alliance, to let me make peace with you please - without any sense of abuse or distrust
i am sur there are a multitude of powerful castles out there that you would get far more honour glory and resos from than from my small and weak sites -- and i can only play a couple of hours a night, dont go in any tournaments or excursions to other realms. i just potter around in my own quiet little patch with the bcs and FLs etc
really hoping this can be settled peacefully pls
One would think a heartfelt message like this would at least get some type of response, even just an acknowledgment of receiving it but no all we got was silence which we took to mean they intended to keep looting us.
So this weekend we did the only thing we could do in this game that is ruled by the big alliances and where alliances like us have very little options. We started to take their rv's and then dump them, what else can we do? we cant attack back even those of us with 5 waves have no hope against the amount of defense they can muster. We can't defend, they are way to strong for us so what can we do... (And please nobody reply with get stronger)
I admit our tactics are not based on fair play but neither is hitting small alliances hundreds of legendary levels below you. Alchs them used a dead account to take two of our ops. We know it was a dead account as the castle was in ruins and had been for some time as the player had given the game away and his ops. Again this is something we couldn't do anything about but we were fully aware what are actions could have led too. Once we started on this path our fates were sealed but I am PROUD to say that we haven't rolled over and won't roll over to the big bullies. As of tonight I hear they are now taking rv;s off other alliances too.
I do want to publically thank everyone who has sent us well wishes, its the far ranging support we have been receiving through these messages that is giving us the strength to keep going...
We did want to keep this out of the forums but its at the stage where too many players keep asking whats going on so easier to put this out there.
