As far as JFA running the world goes - this happens everywhere nowadays. Why should E1 be any different. The team that snags the most resource OPs and can adequately defend them wins the round almost every time. Its not their fault that they expanded faster than everyone else.
The problem wasn't JFA's skill. It was everyone allowing JFA to expand at that rate without realizing that letting them do so = game over. They haven't needed to "adequately defend" anything.
You say "everyone". Except you, BH, WLI and us, who was on the world to stop anyone from expanding? Mm?
Don't say CoLD - They weren't active whatsoever. They would have been a meat shield for you, not an opponent. Though recently theyve been improving.
I have no problem identifying JFA's ability to win era's, but we have had their claims of winning E1 without any form of help or allies shoved down our throat since tick 1.
I would have no issue with this if it were true. Giving alliances the option to place with certain conditions doesn't = winning without help to me. Just win the era guys, why all the bragging about a situation that clearly hasn't been true?
This makes no sense. What do you expect us to do? Bully off and kill everyone who can not defend themselves? Or do you expect us to war everyone at once so that we have the enjoyment of fighting multiple teams plus their subs with about 4 members carrying?
@Alexanderkitty The only claim we ever made about how we were playing this world is to try and stop the JFA steamroll. Our sub or any alliances we have tried to make was done so without claiming that we were acting alone. So pointing that out means nothing.
Yet, early on, you tried to get peace. Then figured you'd screw us and peace us after. If I am not mistaken original talk you weren't planning to war us at any point. A bit hypocritical I guess?
As far as our retreat...I'd say it was pretty damn slow considering you conquered your first WEAK player on tick 564.
I took 2/5th of Africa with 6 squads. We had it pretty much as fast as you can move down, we didn't see a reason to rush Antartica as the income advantage would make it easier over time.
Fighting pure explosive vehs isn't desirable unless you have a considerably larger army.
Your income advantage came well before you pushed us out of Africa.
Africa and EUrope are the most profitable continents in the game.
Does this look like not defending to you?
Not really, you sat on an OP and let us enter AA, then we were ordered to attack, one guy didn't make the attack, we all assumed someone else was scanning and watching. Was a silly mistake, cost us a few squads. Was the result of assuming everyone else amongst us was perfect and would take care of everything - resulting in no one doing so.
I'm sorry we didn't suicide our armies into 8 of yours to make things faster and easier for you. Trust me...we tried many times to catch one of you offline but JFA are experienced and weren't leaving offline armies in a position that they couldn't be defended.
We didn't even move sleeping armies back. Not once. Not one time this era. The only time we ever moved an army back was when Red was quitting. That and when Kodak lost internet at home.
