Thanks all! I'll keep trying to improve even more :D
Alright, Sporting. What's your secret? You've skyrocketed 200+ points and 3 PR in just a week or two. How can you play Iroquois, but only Iroquois, like a god?
Iroquois are that ugly civ that no one likes but it has a lot of cute tricks ^^ But I'll try to expertise one or two other aggressive civs too :D

Well I believe that I had something to do with all this improvement, everyone is scared of me catching their rank, and therefore playing much better than they thought they could play to be being caught :-/
Anyway well done Sporting, onwards and upwards!!

The thing that gets me is that aenna can't hit and run. If it weren't for that, I'd seriously consider calling them one of the best civs. However, because of that to beat them all you need to do is play India and spam sepoys and sowars. How do you beat that?
Groovy.

[quote=""Blackadderthe4th""]Nice one sporting! The clan as a whole seems to be getting better and better. Must be the friendly and chilled atmosphere! :D[/quote]

I beg 2 disagree. LordandCount is still very much the same noob he was last year. Hes just gotten older like the rest of us.

Sporting rocks. As does Nav! but aint it funny/strange/curious/ to see both of them, separatly, playing a lot of QS and one reaching the rank of Colonel relativly quickly after the other ? (mayB its just me and all my conspiracy theories). Nonetheless I hope that Nav now feels "threatened" and goes all out crazy until he reaches Brigadier. Or will he. Will he stay a Colonel by not playing ranked games? Will he loose his rank due 2 decay or just by not being able 2 stay in that league?

Naturally the EXACT same thing must b said/asked about Sporting.

Congrats nonetheless. U both deserve it.

Out

PS nothing like addding a little spice into peoples ambitions :P

Second PS if the whole clan is improving, does that mean Al will soon be raiding even more with his horrid uhlans then he already is?

I find Japan harder than India. Iro is better than India (if you fast up, otherwise just type gg and leave) in the period of time from 5-10 minutes. In this period of time your aennas can snipe out the small numbers of sepoys AND, since you age way earlier, you must, must kill vills and keep him garrisioned and try to take him down. If the game goes longer than 15 mins it's impossible to counter sepoy/sowar and it's gg.
