Good day TWites

It seems that this may be the world war issue (if Dartship is to believed); with tribes possibly banding together to try and stop Shadow’s domination of the world. Although this hasn’t been the first suggestion that this should happen, it seems that 2-3 months into the Nstlk/Shadow war other tribes have finally seen that Shadows domination is a bad thing. Although the exact tribes who are entering the war is yet to be officially confirmed.

This will come as good news to the leaders of Nstlk who have been taking a panning over the past few months as they try to weather the storm which is Shadow.

Recently in the General Forum there has been a running discussion about whether or not having an experienced leader (and experienced players) is the most important part of a tribe. And I would like to pen my own ideas on this topic.

My answer to this is no it isn’t the most important aspect to creating a successful tribe (although don’t get me wrong it certainly does improve the chances of success) or to even be a successful player. My suggestion would be that activity and continual willingness of the leaders/players to be active in the aid of the tribes goals is the most important attribute (as well as the ability not to get board over a long period of play). Experience is all well and good, and yes its undeniable that a player who is more experienced at the game will have an advantage when it comes to playing, you just need to look at the types of players who dominate early in almost every world, experience helps these players be more effective early in the game, and subsequently they are able to dominate, but ask yourself, how many of these players dominate in long term games? Many quit after a couple of months, as they don’t have the mentality to play long term often citing that they are bored (maybe at lack of competition) and subsequently quit. It’s often the case that the ‘best’ and ‘most experienced’ players aren’t the players who have an impact long term on the worlds its players who are willing to put the most time into the game.

To highlight this the Nstlk*/Shadow war is a perfect example, at the beginning of the war Nstlk were able to match Shadow blow for blow, however after a month or so they began to drop off, their players not willing to put in activity into the war, and subsequently having several leaders quit due to frustration that players wouldn’t fight for them; Shadow on the other hand have players who have continually put in the effort against Nstlk and have come out the stronger because of it. Although it could be suggested that many of the Dstlk/Nstlk players have been soft or easy targets, you can only ever beat what is put in front of you, and as long as the Shadow players are willing to put their activity into the tribes wars then they will continue to dominate until their opponents begin to match them.

Also I am running a little competition to try and create a banner for the w27 news (inspired by bl00dlust023’s w11 banner). All entries should be entered at the below link, good luck to anyone who enters.
