Ah yes, a point i was trying to make on our own public forum.
The problem we meat is that there is no way of stopping alliances.
Even a maximum limit didn't stop it.
But the problem might solve itself...people don't seem to attack us less, but even more. Trying to bring the biggie down.
But if a team really works together, they can help eachother and maybe eventually own the world(would take a lot of time).
But the game is still in beta...a couple a hundred active players perhaps.
In the future you're talking about thousands of people i hope and then it would be difficult to hold down all those cities.
Also its no fun for a big alliance.
Before previous reset, there was a point where we saw people didn't play as much anymore because we owned most of the planet...so instead we started giving cities away to newbies. To make sure the game wouldn't become boring for us as well.
Eventually the problem always stops itself, though we haven't had the time to really put it to the test now.
Another solution for players would be to join several versions of the game. So you could actually choose an earth where the NAR doesn't exist . How about that?
