1.) Hello FruitFilledEvil, Thank You for Spending the Time To Do this, Do You Feel Clear! Will be a Tribe to be Feared With?
Hello NML! Of course Clear! will be feared – we’ve got war lust!
2.) What is the History behind Clear!, I would add a ? mark, but it be a tad contradictory.
There was a deadlock between the 3 NorthEast tribes: Storm, WAB, and Visine. We all had either a NAP or Alliance with each other, and we knew that a war between any two would bring one of the others into the war. i.e. if Visine fought Storm, both tribes were worried about WAB interfering. AND there was a huge threat from Moogle – all 3 tribes had good frontage on Moogle but it would have taken at least 2 of the tribes to be involved in order to bring Moogle down – and getting 2 of the tribes, let alone 3 of them to war Moogle at the same time would have been impossible. It was almost never brought up as a topic because we knew WAB had alliance with Moogle and Storm had a NAP. So there was a whole lot of boredom as nobody could commit to any single plan and get moving.
*Rampage* and I both said screw it and decided to force action. We were hellbent on either getting rimmed or making something work. I left Visine and founded Clear! Rampage soon joined, followed 24 hours later by a mix of Storm and Visine people. About half of WAB joined up a few days later. We quickly set about warring Moogle and the rest is history.
3.) FruitFilledEvil is an Interesting Name, Where did you come up with it?
It popped into my head seconds before creating the account. I know a guy named EvilErnie and a friend named HateFilled. Maybe that’s why.
4.) What happened with The War between [H]?
It was missing something for one. We wanted to pick a fight on the biggest baddest target we could find, and [H] needed to be tested on defense. Their ODD was terribly low, but their reputation as an elite tribe was really high. So we knew it would be a huge fight, but wasn’t sure how they’d do on defense.
It turned out that [H] had just undergone a massive loss in leadership and there was basically a civil war going on in the tribe as more and more players were quitting and there was a small power struggle to see how H should be run going forward.
As a result, the H counteroffensive was puny. As the duke of Clear! I should have had thousands of incoming attacks (fakes at least!) and our frontline should have been under massive assault. I think the highest number of incomings I had during the whole campaign was 24. There were only 2 or 3 of our players that recieved any serious attack, and the planning by H was clearly slapped together rather than being created by a functioning elite tribe.
Before the war started, all of the H frontline with Clear! appeared inactive. We thought the majority were just saving packets and preparing to war us, but it turned out that a lot of them were just inactive. This didn’t make a lot of our players happy. We really were itching for a long hard fought war.
Raging Thunder declared on [H] a few weeks into our war. This was pretty much sealing the deal – this war was NOT going to be tough. We granted cease-fire and walked away with the respect of [H] members and a few new friends. Focusing our efforts elsewhere sounded more fun that being involved in a gangbang.
I’ll try to make the rest of my answers shorter so we don’t break WordPress.
5.) Your Tribe doesnt seem like huggers, Are you in it to Thrash it, In It To Win it? or Lets just Have fun, Screw Everyone else?
My philosophy is this: Keep busy, and keep friends. If you do these two things you WILL win it. In response to your question: We hug, we thrash, we win, we have fun, and we screw with everyone. Finding balance between all these things is the real challenge.
6.) What Do You Think about World 26?
I LOVE world 26. I’ll be here until they close the doors.
7.) What Would you Change about World 26?
I’d like to have Moogle back. That war was too short. The only real problem with World 26 is World 27 through World 40. Too many new worlds have caused a lot of people to leave. When things start to get the least bit difficult people just pull up stakes and join a new world. That’s no fun.
8.) What do You do Outside of Tribalwars?
A lot. Full time job and I’m a full time Dad. I’ve recently started rollerblading again so I can cut down on the tribal wars fat I’ve gained in the past 6 months. I like to play chess, build furniture, remodel my kitchen, and get drunk with friends when I have time.
9.) Who are you going to Fight with next?
What was your name again? We’ll take on anyone who wants a piece of the action. But until somebody declares on us we’re turning over some stones to see what pops out. We liked the idea of fighting something bigger than us – that’s why we picked Moogle and why we picked [H]. We wanted a shot at fighting RT, but that never came to pass! For now we’ll keep turning over stones until the world is ready for the next great series of wars!
10.) Thanks For taking the time on this, if you would like to add anything, it be great.
Yeah – Remember, if you don’t look forward to logging in, figure out why that is and fix it. This game is exactly what you make of it. Thanks to my great team at Clear! for making me excited to log in every single day. Thanks for the interview.
