Without having any insight into the rest of this era and the way it’s being played; Can we just all stop doing the “helping friends win” thing? It’s honestly ruining Battledawn so much and is such an incredibly pathetic way to win. Bring a team to an era, play your best, do diplo ingame and have fun playing against friends. Not this pathetic “gotta help friends win so they’ll help me out in turn”. Seriously, what is the value in even winning like this? All it proves is that you’re not able to win by yourself and with your own team but that you need to resort to not even diplo but calling in favors to win an era.
Sure, it might win you the era, but it’s a hollow victory. Congratulations on not being a good enough player to win on your own merit, yay right? If you’re playing an era, go for the win. If your being friends with someone depends on you helping them in eras and them helping you in turn you’re not friends.
