June 14, 2010 in World 050 News
Hey W50! Timed bomb. here with the weekly blog post. Since this world is still fresh there are numerous rank changes–players and tribes. I had to interview Social Suicide(Leader of CBears) since they are now at war with a 12 tribe coalition–which was said by BRATSTER. I will be going with the same layout that Klouwe did mostly, except some weeks other then the player interview I will have a leader to interview on views of a tribe, any wars they are participating in, and things of that nature. The winner of the LOLCAT Challenge went to Ghosttoy(Picture at the end of the blog).

Leader of the Week: Social Suicide(CBears)
Timed bomb.: Hello SS I hope you are doing well today would you like to be in an interview for the W50 blog?
Social Suicide ٩๏̯͡๏)۶: Sure
Timed bomb.: Great! So I will get straight into the questions. Why did you decide to war so early?
Social Suicide ٩๏̯͡๏)۶: I didn’t want to go to war with so many tribes, but being rank 2 and spread over 4 continents, held by continent tribes. It’s in their nature to form some sort of coalition against the big bad wolf.
Timed bomb.: I see. You changed accounts? Why?
Social Suicide ٩๏̯͡๏)۶: My original account lacked serious growth due to me putting most effort into forming the tribe in the early stages, my area was also the most crowded with members in north K35. There was another account opening and I suicided my troops against a Dbauch member, the change benefitted both me, and the tribe in general.
Timed bomb.: Well anyone could of easily assumed you meant top 3 or top 5. ‘One of the best’ you wouldn’t of said that for only top 10 worthy. Now what tribes do you think will be here in about 1 month still in the top 10?
Social Suicide ٩๏̯͡๏)۶: The same top 10 we have now, excluding ~DD~ and SeVeN.
Reason for this is DD are extremely close to DIY for any form of comfort in their future, I don’t see them lasting more than 2-3 weeks. SeVeN on the other hand are a little further out, however still they are in DIY territory, they might last a little more than a month, but they won’t be here forever.
Timed bomb.: Cool. Do you think DYI will last long in this world? Before getting bored?
Social Suicide ٩๏̯͡๏)۶: I can see DIY sticking around for quite some time, whether they get bored or not is not for me to say, I’m not acquainted with the majority of them. It’s known that experienced players quit sooner and that’s all I can say.
Timed bomb.: Do you have any diplomacy already in place? Other then enemies?
Social Suicide ٩๏̯͡๏)۶: 1 or 2 naps due to our spread, but not going into detail on that.
Timed bomb.: What do you think of the PnP present in the W50 forums?
Social Suicide ٩๏̯͡๏)۶: I think it’s weak. Majority of people cannot tell the difference between a flame war and a friendly discussion, or they circular their tribes to come back them up; that is not healthy propaganda.
Timed bomb.: Why did you tribe decide to change your tribe name?
Social Suicide ٩๏̯͡๏)۶: Some one asked me to.
Timed bomb.: Was it a tribe vote or did you just decide to change it by yourself?
Social Suicide ٩๏̯͡๏)۶: I notified the tribe for ideas, some were happy with Unkwn and others were happy with a change. Care bears was actually the tribe name I used when making a tribe on my previous worlds. Usually under the tag -=CB=-
Social Suicide ٩๏̯͡๏)۶: I have a fixation with bears.
Timed bomb.: Sounds awesome. Is your recruitment open?
Social Suicide ٩๏̯͡๏)۶: Other than the players already awaiting invites within the next week, no.
Timed bomb.: Ok last question. IS there anything you would like to tell W50?
Social Suicide ٩๏̯͡๏)۶: Settings > Delete account
Timed bomb.: Ok. Also recently you made a post that your tribe is one of the best one in the worlds… do you not think that’s a biased answer?
Social Suicide ٩๏̯͡๏)۶: I don’t think it’s biased at all, I personally meant at least top 10 calibre, although I’d probably say top 5 too.
Timed bomb.: Does your tribe think the coalition consisting of 12 tribes(said by bratster) will be a difficult feat?
Social Suicide ٩๏̯͡๏)۶: Not particularly. Bratster himself has been nobled and his remaining villages are currently being catapulted, he’s all talk as well as the rest of his tribe. As for the other tribes involved, the majority are recruiting on points and are not unified in the way we are. I think we have the upper hand, whether our spread is against us or not.
Timed bomb.: When do you suspect them to stop this stupid early war that won’t benefit anyone?
Social Suicide ٩๏̯͡๏)۶: Other than the players already asking for invites, I expect them to take it to their grave as many already have.
Social Suicide ٩๏̯͡๏)۶: I think once Bratster has been eliminated, their morale will weaken and their presence will cease to exist on the publics.
Timed bomb.: What led up to them forming a coalition? Was it fear or did y’all start nobling there members?
Social Suicide ٩๏̯͡๏)۶: Well as you know, experienced and skilled players farm their 15x15s early on, as Unkwn was a great premade filled of these types of players, a couple Dbauch players just happned to land in our territory.
We offered them diplomacy, if they dismissed 2-3 of our current farms whom served no use to their tribe. Their tribe respectfully refused and accused us of being bullies and it all kicked off from there.
Timed bomb.: I see. So what are all the known tribes participating in this caolition?
Social Suicide ٩๏̯͡๏)۶: Well as far as I can tell, currently only 3, a few have already forwarded me Bratsters mail:
Timed bomb.: Hmm, so you do you believe it’s 12 tribes?
Social Suicide ٩๏̯͡๏)۶: Definitely not, there isn’t even 1 tribe who can take CBears on in the North-East, nevermind 12.
Timed bomb.: Thanks for doing this interview SS. Good luck in the wars ahead of you. Better yet good luck in W50.
