I’ve found recently that different types of alliances are more-effective against one another. Like a Rock-Paper-Scissors game. For example, let’s say that we have 3 alliances:
Alliance A has many members, but most of them are low-level
Alliance B has few members, but they’re all mid-level.
Alliance C has medium members, but most of them are high level, with one or two members being low-level.
See the match ups here?
- A vs. B
Most of A’s members cannot attack B, so B wins.
- A vs. C
All of A’s members can rack up skulls, and C cannot withstand the member-count difference. A wins.
- B vs. C
C has a larger member count, so C wins.
All of them win a certain type of matchup. Ergo, when A & B but heads, B wins, and this a problem for A. So what can beat B? C. I predict, that once this strategy is widely realized, alliances will start hiring each other to take their opponents out. For example, a member from A may go to C, and pay them 4mil gold to devour B, whilst A devours C, effectively allowing A to defeat B.
Thoughts? I know this is kind of hard to understand, but it’s just like Rock-Paper-Scissors. Do you think that these strategy will come to light? If so, when? And did I just set a terrible chain of events in motion by posting this? You decide!
