Many of the current 100 FTW members HAVE been on the opposite side of the fence in an almost identical situation on Delta server and in the end we prevailed.
Doubtful although I can't 100% verify as I only play Epsilon but I am aware that we are the only ones to make it to this type of end game so I believe that shoots that comment out of the water.
FTW now has less than half the total members that they used to have. 150 less players than we had with ftw/red combined, 250 less than we had with flood/ark combined.
And you were going where with this? You have less members and - 1 Billion fleet which again I point out was just trimming off the fodder so again for FTW nothing has really changed your still holding all the cards.
Except that they aren't already "defeated." The 150 former FTW players have been on the winning side for the past year or more and still have prod queues filled for a long time with derbs from the last crash. But regardless, yes, that is how the game is played.
If You, Godlike, Soso, Salsa split into separate guilds I'd agree but you didn't which is another reason I say BS to the helping the server you helped your self's other wise the servers "Leaders" wouldn't still be in the same guild refusing to kill each other but willing to kill others that have been guild mates for years. It still boils down to you wanted to keep the server interesting for you play, you set free game for the continued hunt that is all lol
On the contrary, zerg FTW had superb activity during the last blob crash against swag. I was shocked at how much fleet launched on time when they were supposed to.
During 1 launch which really in the end didn't count for much because SWAG was already a beaten target that knew that they stood no chance. Please tell me you were as pleased with all the other launches....not from you but I remember the announcements posted at the time and they were not ones of happiness.
