@Alfie congrats on getting as far as you did with your team. You played the game well, but if your intention was to teach your team maybe you should have done a 1v1 with us. Getting BfM and NICE to attack together with other alliances (I don't know if FiN and the other alliances attacking around the same tick as everyone else was a coincidence or also planned). Because of that you guys pretty much had an easy victory with a 7/8v1. It's true we failed at the diplomacy game but adding to the fire for an easy win only teaches diplomacy and nothing when it comes to war.
I also had my fair share of problems with my team due to inactivity when we were under attack, so I understand some of that frustration. We were getting attacked from all sides plus the 50+ tick jams can really make counterattacking effectively very hard.
@George congrats to you and your team.
