I was in LAN and I quit era around tick 550 coz STRK was dead, while FIRE and BAR were fighting and we were building up and collecting garrisons/relics.
My team apparently made era long deal with BAR and FIRE, which demotivated me from just logging in to build an army. That is more like a farming game where you log in daily to collect crops. I was hoping for someone to 'backstab' another, but with so much pride and honor at stake, I could not see that happening. I do not understand why people made era long deals with 2/3 other alliances. Especially my team (LAN) who agreed to sit and build for the next 500 ticks, they manipulated other teams.
This was a 1000 tick 'experiment' event... people treated it like a normal era where they get as much allies, but forgetting that there were only 4 teams and each had 100 players.
I care about having fun and this faction event helped me fight alongside my 'enemies' (in other eras) against my 'friends' (in other eras). I felt this was going to fix the issue of players always refusing to fight 'friends' but the latest actions seem to have proved me wrong.
