I told people in E1 prior to the era start that we were playing JW, ask anyone on that team. We had just played last E1 seriously and won, and I wanted to focus on M1, the only server I tend to play.
We never had a 50% power lead over Mr.Os team. At most it was 400 power, and that was towards the beginning of war. They were an active, and boosting team, and It was hard without active allies to defeat them. Allies Alfie are people who help you win wars, I know thats a foreign concept to you since no one wants to work with you and your poisonous attitude.
And as for the person I bribed, his team didnt even participate in the war, so your point it moot. They had a farm place to save their armies after we trapped them. That is actual cheating, but we kept playing anyways, we fought on.
I hope you find happiness one day Alfie. We lose some eras, and we win some. No need to be so negative.
