ENEMIES (Name, Coordinates, Reason)
1) LordSiege (possible LordSiege1, LordSiege12) - attacking AC2000 and warheadwally123 despite negotiations. I have put up a 24/7 blockade on him. Let me know in advance if you plan on attacking him. He has no sulfur and with the blockade he won't have any, all he can build are slingers (to which they've killed a handful of my swordsmen =X)*******UPDATE******** He has been banned for multi-accounting :D First enemy down!
2) Spartan Force alliance (Tag: S-F) -War is over but keep an eye out for these baddies.

FRIENDLY (Name, Coordinates, Reason)
~~Basically anyone with the TWM tag is part of our alliance, so consider them a friendly.~~
edit: I've removed our members listings to prevent hostile alliances from stumbling here and finding all of our towns. Just join our alliance and you'll be able to find all of us easily.



This thread got borked really bad. Pherion has kicked Nubs from S-F and as such have come to our demands and thus ends the war.

How.... How.... do I get Marble?!

One of four ways. One, You get lucky like Muggs and land on an island with it... You buy with with a trade post, you learn expansion and build a new colony on a marble island (which is what I am doing in about 40 minutes) or you do what I did...find some random player that is inactive on a marble island close to you, check on high score if the player has any Generals (if they have 0 it means they have 0 military thus no resistance to your attacks) and to see what their total score is, then you send 2-3 slingers at them and steal marble from them :) thats How i amassed marble at first.

Klor gave me a tip. Goto a nearby island [have a boat] and look up an inactive player [someone with a ! next to their city] on the highscore generals listing, 0 means they have no army.

I've made a few hundred rare resources and a few thousand gold like that over the last few hours. :)

If you guys have questions just ask. I'll be expanding to marble myself soon. then probably upgrading and taking wine as my 2nd expo to keep my peoples happy =P

Oh and I can apparently already make the alliance, so think up a name, (something other than tankspot since i've got co-workers who will join) and i'll make it, then research foreign cultures to build your own embassy and then join it.

I'll probably make the alliance tomorrow morning.

a quick note. most likely your first town is landed randomly. but please have all your colonies next to 76, 72. the reason is we want to stick together and eventually all declared war on someone. also, if you don't have colony next to us, it is very difficult for us to help you in term of resource, attack or defend.

Well, to be fair, this is just an ideal of what we want, if we can all be around each other we are much stronger as a team, and we can fund each other without you having to worry about 14h travel times. The area around us hasn't proven very hostile, except for 1 or two that I've had to personally take care of with the help of Sarek and Zafo. Since myself, Sarek, Zafo, and Norrath are all on 1 island, and yaliu is already with us, it just made sense to try to forge our colonies together. This by no means states that you can't join our alliance and stay far away, that's fine too, we're all here to play the game and have fun, our own little way =]

Oh, and something to note, if the higher up people who are already well progressed (i don't want to ask too much of the newer players), can send me wood/marble to upgrade my embassy. Screwy system but in order for me to accept applications to the Alliance, you guys have to have at least 1 diplomat point, but the ALLIANCE needs to have alliance diplomat points which are converted from players diplomat points which I've been upgrading my embassies to achieve. So if you can try to either donate your own diplomat points (not sure if it lets you) or send me wood/marble to keep on upgrading, that'd be great.

Kazeyonoma
09-17-2008, 02:43 AM
your best bet since you're not near any of us is to build a trading post and buying it for gold for now until you can expand to a marble island.

Well, SCT turned out to be venta, and well... we kinda played chicken with each other until he asked for a truce, so lift the attacks on venta and sct, now i'm gonna be sitting around with a HUGE gold sink in my towns, 13 phalanxes and 14 ballista ships...

i posted this for all the guys who have joined the alliance already. If you need sulfur, I have a large over abundance of it. I will be willing to trade 1:1 ratio for either wine or glass (soon to not be wine once my colony gets on its feet and starts collecting full time ...stupid corruption >.>) Just hit me up with a message or something. I am at 59,37 and we can talk out an agreement. As it is right now, it may be a few days before I can get it to you seeing as how me and Muggsy seem to be eons away from everyone else in the world and my ships are continuously moving between my colonies >.> (again blaming Muggsy for making me colonize on a backwater island with a terribad quarry and lumber mill level!) but I will let you know when the soonest I can get the mats to you so we can set up the arrangement. :)

LOL Squeegie..klor I think I confused the terms..I have an hour left on expansion, so I am going to hold off building anything else until it is done and I see if I can build a palace or not. Is there a reason at this stage if I have minimum 10 slingers in my town at all times that I could not upgrade my port to lvl 2-3? I remember kaz saying something about being able to defend it...do I need to get professional army first?

Rabidwombat
09-18-2008, 02:15 PM
There isnt really a point in upgrading it beyond 1...

In fact, there is a good reason to not upgrade it. The speed at which items are loaded is proportional to your port level. So if someone comes to pillage you and you have an upgraded port, then they get more stuffs.

Pfft...Tell Blizzard to make the dummies down to level 70 again so i can test more things. Otherwise any tests I do with TG is moot. And now that they added that new tier 1 fury talent, it might make more dps...but right now I'm remaining kinda annoyed with the whole thing.

Tatt
09-18-2008, 02:35 PM
Without hyjacking this thread I think the new talent is just to make a prot/dps build even more attractive. I guess fury warriors should have lobbied as hard and as well as tanks for improvements.

So is anyone near 26:54 who needs wood or marble and is willing to trade or sell crystal? Need like 200 for academy 6 :(

Krenian
09-18-2008, 02:41 PM
The problem is that we have lobbied hard for it. But without going against the posting scheme, I'll be quiet about it and just state that sometimes Blizzard does what Blizzard wants.

How about you actually donate wood to it before you ask me to donate more. Kthx

You've not donated a single thing to either the lumber mill nor the quarry.
As of right now, my second colony getting built is more important than me feeding all my spare building material to the quarry to help you progress faster.

09-18-2008, 05:50 PM
OK, would I be correct in assuming that building on a wine island as my first expansion would make the most sense, so that I can continue growing my population as rapidly as possible? I currently have lumber and marble on my own island, and I found an island nearby that only has 2 developments on it with wine and forest. Thinking it would be the quickest expansion. Or are we still all trying to get near each other, in which case someone (klor/muggs) find me an island nearby that would work for my immigration, and tell me how much wood/marble I should save up in preparation for the move.

If this guy messes with me again today, the gloves are coming off and my spies are going in to see what's up with him. His last three attacks have netted him a total of 10 gold, so I think he got the idea. I've got 8 phalanx units on standby in my town. He's been hitting me with ~378 attack power though.

Well due to no response I chose to expand to a wine/wood island very close by. Expansion should be finished in teh next 3 hours. What is necessary to create a 3rd colony? I am guessing stage 2 palace? I would like to get a colony on a sulfur Island also nearby. If I had to buy nothing but crystal I would be a very happy mammal.

klor
09-19-2008, 10:49 AM
Size 2 palace, and to remove corruption, you also need size 2 governors mansions in both colonies...which results in about 20,000wood and about 2000 marble...not to mention level 4 warehouses in each to handle the wood....AND the extra 12000g and 1250wood to start PLUS the 500+ wood/100+marble it takes to build the governors mansion in the first place...

Needless to say, its expensive... i am JUST getting mine up to date in the next hour... you can make the colony without upgrading the govenors mansions, but you have about 33% corruption in each. I updated the one in my established colony to 2, then made my new colony and upgraded it to 1 asap..then i left all my citizens idle to get gold in that colony since it is not affected by corruption and sent wood from my other cities to build everything up.

Hope that makes sense and I am not rambling too much :)

Am I immediately at square 1 and racing to get everything built a 2nd time?

klor
09-19-2008, 11:29 AM
You get 40 people and 1 townhall. Welcome to square one, with a feeder town to send material to yourself :) The first thing I recommend doing is sending 500wood and however much marble it takes to build a govenors mansion...and send that to yourself first and get it built asap...dont send any of your citizens in the new colony to collect whatever "wealth" resource you have on the island or to gather building materials..they will be working at half efficiency..aka 2 citizens per 1 wood per hour and 4 citizens per 1 "wealth resource" per hour. Same with research points for that colony. Corruption is the devil.... :D

AUGH!!!!!

Due to my stupidity aka not validating my email, my account never was created at all and as soon as I closed my window, thinking that would be the reason people could not see me, it turns out that my little town was not even in the system anymore. Therefore I just had to recreate my account again anew. /sigh

Well, here we go again.

I'll try to keep up with the applications but it takes longer and harder for me to come up with Alliance Diplomacy points to accept each of you.

Right now pending is Dygrav and Galushi who have app'd and waiting on my embassies to upgrade to give me more points to accept members.

If anyone has spare wine to send me who wants to have some crystal or marble (not currently but in the future i can send more, saving up for next expansion) let me know, I really need wine, i'm at th epoint where if i don't give them 8 wine an hour, they are unhappy O_o.

I've recently expanded to my second island, a marble one. I upgraded my town hall to 3 and built an acadamy which I upped to level 2. My problem is that it won't let me mien any marble or wood on the island. It's incredibly frustrating as I can't do anything until I figure out the problem. Whenever I go into the quarry or woodsite it just shows me how many workers the players on the island have in the quarry/woodsite, and how much they've donated.

Anyone who isn't in the alliance and would like to, please send your apps again, for whatever reason, it only lets me store a few days worth of messages, so those who app'd a while ago, I can no longer accept. I'll be building my 3rd embassy and upgrading it soon so that's a good 4-5 more apps hopefully.

just sending me wood and marble cuz that's what it takes to upgrade them.

It just sucks because that's wood and marble i could be using to build other stuff, or better yet, the time spent on upgrading could be spent building/upgrading other buildings.. my embassies currently take over 2.5 hours to upgrade. That's 2.5 hours and 500 wood 100 marble to invite 1 person.

Optimoos
09-23-2008, 03:29 PM
New rule to join the alliance - provide Kaz the wood and marble for your spot!

As soon as I stomp out the corruption from my latest expansion I will send you some materials. As for the time lost... sorry, can't help you. Maybe it's time to found a town strictly to house the embassy? I will assist with supplies for that if you like, although transport time will likely be ~24 hours.

If anyone has some wood they can spare at the moment I am trying to expand but will need a ridiculous amount....2000 more for palace lvl 2....then like 6k to get the governor's mansion to lvl 2 on the crystal or sulfur island I choose next. I have marble/wine I am willing to trade for it.

wood and marble and time, don't worry about it galushi, it's just a mater of time now, my recent pillages have brought in over 8k wood and 1k marble, i just need to spend the 3+ hours upgrading my embassies to invite you and warheadwally123, then we're set for a while I hope.

Wow, I just looked at what it's going to take to upgrade my palace and governor's residences to expand to my 4th town... um yay for stockpiling assloads of crystal and marble!

So, what's the best way of rapidly upgrading a governor's residence in a new town? All I can come up with is having all the materials on hand and having a massive fleet of transport ships ready to go into action once the colony is planted.

Tatt

Marble's available either via pillaging or via expansion.

Requires the third tech in the Seafaring tree to make a palace and then you can expand to one island per level of palace.

optimoos, make sure your new colony has a high enough warehouse as well!

Well that's basically what I'm trying to determine - launch a colony and deliver everything needed to expand it ASAP. Presently this means:

1) Have your other colony/colonies expanded with palace/governor's residence to the level you need to support the new colony BEFORE planting it.
2) Calculate required supplies necessary for new colony, including:
- Planting the colony
- Building and expanding a warehouse to accept incoming supplies
- Building and expanding a governors residence to stomp out corruption
3) Ensure you have an appropriate transport fleet in place to move supplies in as the warehouse expands. You will not ship everything at once, and timing depends on how far away your new colony is from where the supplies are coming. Likely you would want to time shipment arrivals with each warehouse expansion until everything has been completed.
4) Build up your supplies and when everything is ready, plant the colony and gogogo!

Does this sound right?

I've got 2 more embassies upgrading for 2 more invites, i'm currently reserving 1 for Galushi, but if he doesn't respond by tonight I'll have to push him back 1 slot each time someone applies. Saving slots currently in order of application:

some new guy my co worker sent me form work,
Meeks/Temig/Turelliax,

I'll need to upgrade A BILLION more times to cover all of you guys. So just give me time.

Unfortunately, i think after Sangi, I have to cut this alliance full, it is really really dauntingly long to try to get diplomacy points now that my Embassies are all level 6 or higher. 5+hours of build time is really the strain, the materials don't hurt me as much because those 5 hours provide me back the materials anyways, it's just a matter of slowing down my own personal progression to do this.

If in the future there are more members or if spots open up I'll post them, but for now Sangi will probably be the last member allowed into the alliance, i'll update the main post for those who will be getting invites, and I'll contact you guys once I get the points to invite you.

Can alliance lead be transferred? I haven't looked at the TOS in depth, but would it be allowed to have an account dedicated to alliance control? I know you can't send goods from a low level town to a high level town ("pushing") but what about a high level town to a low level town (would this be "pulling")? If it's allowed I don't have a problem starting a second account and maintaining a defended town(s) simply for alliance maintenance.

Probably not allowed, but just throwing it out there.

Galushi
09-26-2008, 03:48 PM
Even if it was allowed to transfer resources in some way, operating multiple accounts is against game rules. Unless someone was playing the game JUST to operate the alliance, we wouldnt be able to run another account to do this.

I'm wondering if another alternative would be to have another alliance started up and have it be completely allied with the Watchmen?

this is fine, I don't want us to fraction off into our own alliances, this was the very reason why we made this alliance, to stick together, help each other when we can, and be able to contact each other easier. Creating a second alliance will just strain this. I can handle the invites up to Sangi, just give me time, but I don't think it'd be wise for us to invite anymore until I can catch up to all of my other needs. I'm not trying to complain about it, I'm just being realistic. Part of being in TWM is that it says something about us, and that's what I want. If someone sees that Tatt all by himself is in TWM, and they look up TWM and see that were in the top 85 alliances, that in and of itself will probably stop people from attacking him (smarter people anyways), any trouble I can save our members is what I strive for. Especially once the game starts to get to a point where building/upgrading takes 5+ hours i'll have nothing to do with my resources anyways other than shipping them off to my alliancemates anyways.

And I dabbled with the 2nd alliance galushi, it just isn't what I'd like to see, it's like having a guild split on you and saying it's the same, it's not.

and transferring of leadership is impossible unless the person I am passing it to has as many diplomacy points as I have. Anyone out there have 25 diplomacy points? I doubt it.

all great, but we have lots more apps than we can realistically expect to have the capacity to include in the alliance in the near future, I'd love to have a TWM tag to deter would-be invaders but if you don't have room for me I've gotta do something else to survive :(

I don't have much crystal for trade Klor, is there any other good you need that I can trade for sulfur? My current crystal mill is really low level so I can't pump it out yet, will be able to soon though, 2dXh till helping hands!

If it matters Stardust has set up a blockade for my port i dont know if it is constant but as an update

@sas, i'll send 900 for now, let me know if you need more, guys, use the Alliance messaging system that way you can get help from people who aren't on tankspot as well.

@DrK, let us know your location and possibly stardust's location and we'll bust you out and blockade him instead.

Sascaroth

Thank you so much Kaze, 900 will do it because in about 12 hours or so 7 ships will arrive from my capital carrying wood.

I'm going to abandon my original colony (Ex Capital) today and start a new wine colony, so my overall score will probably drop to around 1-2k this is going to be tough but i hate the 26H trips and waste of ships for that period when i'm sending huge amounts of material...

so yeah don't get in to any war while i'm rebuilding ;-)

I'm not sure if i can afford my troops after thius happens so i might have to fire some untill i get my population back up....

Sadly, it looks like I'm absolutely locked down with Marble. Both islands that I'm near have 16 people on it which means I'm out of luck when it comes to building more. =/ Guess I may have to look around and see what's closest. will post updates, am working on embassies now.

He sent me a message to convince me to spend more on upgrading the wood/marble or that he would keep looting me to do it himself. I dont think i'm in any serious trouble except that I don't have access to sulfur to build up more than slingers.

minrog
10-16-2008, 08:25 PM
Hey effiy they seem to do that on all the islands, though I got a message before the pillaging began:

one warning only.."

Lol yeah, I feel like i'm getting muscled by the mob. Insurance anyone? What sucks is that I was working up materials for my 2nd expansion and he threw a wrench in that as I had to start and build up my non-existant defenses.

Officially at war with Spartan Force, 12 hours from now, bashing rule no longer applies against that alliance.

minrog
10-17-2008, 12:00 AM
oh boy! war! Maybe I will wait a day or so to get into the alliance so I don't get perma camped into my level 3 base. heh. Maybe we could create an intel thread on S-F so we know who they are and where their towns are? I can't seem to find any near the island I moved to.

And Effiy that's exactly how I felt. I paid off the racketeer by putting 1k wood into the marble pile but before the next one comes by with his thugs I should be vacated out of there. lol

also is there a way to jump straight to it ?

I've calmed the waters by donating and built up a small defensive force. Now I am back to stockpiling materials to upgrade my palace for the 2nd expansion. And this is where I need some advice. Should I expand nearby or move towards the "core" of the TankSpot group? Also, do I go for sulfur or crystal as my 3rd resource(already have marble/wine) ?

minrog
10-17-2008, 09:12 AM
hey darksend, if you look at the top of your screen, just to the right of the ship icon is the name of the currently selected colony. If you click the arrow to the right of that name it drops down a list of all your colonies. Select the one you want to look at and then click the "towns" button and it will take you there.

Effiy I think crystal should be your next island. Sulfur seems to mostly be used for the advanced-ish units but you cannot build them without getting the higher level research. I don't think a level 3 or 4 Academy in each town is going to be enough research ability unless you like waiting months between discoveries. :P

I moved to the Tankspot area but I'm seeing quite a few people spread out so it's probably a question of whether you can go it alone where you are. Would suck to get hit by 5+ size alliance without your fellow gangsters backing you up with the Tommy gun. :P

Effinaymon

SO.... it would appear that I bit off more than I can chew with this guy that has been nibbling at me. Last night he threw 24 phalanx at my main town and made off with a lot of materials. I'm at a bit of a disadvantage with no steady supply of sulfur, while he does. Would anyone be able to lend some assistance? I can offer marble, wine or crystals in return.

Kazeyonoma
10-22-2008, 02:34 PM
what's your location effin, if you're close to one of us bigger guys maybe we can help

Effinaymon
10-22-2008, 04:18 PM
It was a tough decision but I decided to pull out of that particular island. The predominant alliance on the island has targeted my town for "Hostal Take Over" and I just dont have the materials to defend.

Tatt
10-22-2008, 04:22 PM
Effin - I am rather bored and looking to pick a fight, give me your previous location so I can write something hurtful and nasty to the guy who attacked you :) Hopefully he takes the bait and I can give Kaze something to do again :)

that guy is so far away it's retarded for him to even try to attack.

Is there anyone near you with a similar name, might be a multi account and he just found you and wanted to try to hit you with his "stronger" account.

Kyoki
10-23-2008, 01:17 PM
Whats with everybody getting attacked lately. Effin is ditching his island because of attacks, meeks it getting lol 200 guys sent at him. Some 26k rating guy is trying to invane gal from like 7 hours away

Effinaymon
10-23-2008, 07:55 PM
Eh, its probably normal. It just depends on who gets randomly targeted. My initial attacker actually messaged me to ask why I removed my town. I prefer to avoid conflict until i'm ready, and I was nowhere near ready with no sulfur supply and trying to stabilize 3 towns. For myself, I've been plundering inactive towns with no defense. Sure its pretty cowardly but it is an easy source of materials and can be done overnight while i'm sleeping.

Apparently he is the brother of some guy i pillaged a few days ago and took 6k gold and 0 mats from. I think he spent a lot more then 6k gold trying to attack, with no blockade. But he told me the name of the guy so I might just pillage the crap out of his brother...6k gold is enough to make it worth it.

we will see, what's the name of his "brother". As a GM of many games where multi-accounting is prohibited, the old "my brother" excuse is a really old one.

I am leaning towards this kid having multiple accounts and he's using his "brother" as an excuse to not get banned.

Meeks
10-24-2008, 10:56 AM
This guy does not seem smart enough to do that. Here are my communications with him so far.

Q: Why are you attacking me?
A: "b coz ur atacking my brothers town!!"

Q: Who is your brother?
A: "heroes town!!"

I spied out Mount Olympus and saw his garrison now that the troops have returned. 200 swordsmen, 40 phalanx and a doctor. He has 0 ships which would explain the loack of blockade.

I think I am going to blockade him with my left over ram ships and see if I can't get lucky and intercept a trade fleet.

Tatt
10-24-2008, 10:58 AM
Interesting fact I just noticed...gunsman provide more defense than phalanxes do....now that gunpowder has been learned I will be slowly replacing all my swordsman and phalanxes with a smaller band of gunsman to cut down upkeep but still have a nice amount of offense AND defense.



Oh...and 18 days for robotics is frigging ridiculous....
