Title: TPL War Recap


Golden arm42 - April 10, 2009 09:59 PM (GMT)
As most of you know (or at least should :lol:), we had a war this afternoon with our allies TPL. I'd like to thank everyone who came, as we managed another strong turnout with an initial pull of 22 members. The fight was a historic first for AL; as we rallied from a defecit (stretching to 10 or 11 kills at one point) to tie TPL. Good job on the comeback, everyone; it's good to see we didn't give up and put our heads down but instead kept fighting back. :)

With that being said, today's fight shouldn't have been close. We doubled their pull, and although they brought high levels and outleveled us, there's really no reason it should have been so close. Several things we need to address.

1. Piling. Too often, we were spread out and attacking three or four targets at once, and it showed, as we weren't getting quick kills and they were using their high defense and prayer to tank us out. When we DID pile, after regrouping at the portal, we were much more successful, and managed to close the kills gap from eight to two. I'm sure the warlords will think of some ways to improve the piling; perhaps falling back to our portal constantly at turrets, but either way, it's our job to listen to their calls and get on the pile.

2. No-showing. Although work is a valid excuse, and therefore Imso and Yam are excused (although I don't know where Imso would be working at 11 PM his time... :blink:), I was disappointed that several people deliberately chose not to come; two 100+ that probably would have won the war for us. I'm not going to call you out, because you know who you are, but this attitude of laziness and personal gratification has to stop. I know for a fact that at least one member turned private and clan to off in order to avoid fighting. Since I apparently haven't made this clear before, I'll do so now. Anyone who deliberately avoids going to a war by lying about excuses or turning private/clan chat off will receive a one-week suspension from the CC and forum. Anyone who does it multiple times will be banned. We are a clan and a team, and we owe it to each other to at least show up and get your clanmate's back.

These are the two issues I personally see that need most addressing; everyone else, please chime in with your thoughts.

One of those members, in which I recruited so you know which one, was having problems with lag. Lag is terrible for him during this time so cut him some slack. When I have lag, I do my best to come, but I'm normally knocked out because of it. *remembers me getting piled in STAB event* yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeah

+1 on the no-shows, we really need to start cracking down on that. a valid excuse is fine, but blatant avoiding of the wars needs to stop.

Was it fun? :lol:

You were missing your #1 ranger and binder but i see you still did fine :ph43r:

that certain some1 needs to start doing stuff in clan... that person needs to come to events... that person shoulda came anyways to the war seeing it was a pkri... lag is not a good excuse to me cuz that person was clearly on the whole time of the war and like an hour after... i dont see how any1 can play lagging for 2 straight hours and to me.. if u can lag doing whatever ur doing and b able to still play, u can lag at cw

Piling was tough, it was hard to tell who to attack, but going near our portal was a great strategy by damon, it helped alot. Binding and sniping was good today but there were some people 1v1 when the the person on tpl totally out leveled them.

Imso Hot - April 10, 2009 11:23 PM (GMT)
Lagging in cw has mroe negative than positive things (i think?) so dont blame him if his computer is piece of [BEEP] (like my old one)

Donovan Kays - April 10, 2009 11:32 PM (GMT)
we did a great job coming back to tie

people need to be more commited to the clan and start showing up for wars and not making excuses next time though

weeyin2 - April 10, 2009 11:33 PM (GMT)
dont think there will be a next time for me ha

Redeyes2496 - April 10, 2009 11:45 PM (GMT)
I had some lag problems, they were annoying...until I remembered I was running limewire lol.

Um yeah, I wasn't like, too happy about everything. I'm getting tired of all of the single piles and stuff like that. I don't see why people can't just listen to the orders that the leaders call. This needs to change.

Weeyin, I'm really sorry if you had lag. It's just that recently we've had a lot of people claiming various causes for not coming to wars, and given you managed to stay on and such, I thought you could have at least tried to come. :(

Awesome comeback however guys, despite the no-shows!
1 of the problems with the pileing for me at least was someone would be called, and i'd try to find them on my screen but couldn't click them until they were dead. I think we should have 2, maybe even 3 groups according to our numbers for pileing to make things more efficient!

yeah, i kinda like that. we kinda have that now since people don't listen to piles to begin with lol

so maybe if we had some warlords or leaders lead other groups, that would be kinda cool.

That wouldn't work that well, maybe only two piles, but for clan wars classic map, we only need one pile because it will be easy to find.

I'm sorry I could not come to this war, I should be able to make it to the one tomorrow but for whatever reason I can't seem to load RuneScape on this computer the last couple of times that I have tried to do so. If you want a reason as to why I wasn't there (and I hadn't logged in all day) I was out with a real estate agent looking at houses cause I'll be moving, I really had no choice.

Redeyes2496 - April 11, 2009 01:15 AM (GMT)
lucky you, grab a house while they're cheap ;)


try clearin' all your stuff like, cookies, history, all that stuff...

starwolf_ftw - April 11, 2009 02:26 AM (GMT)
The size of the map was our disadvantage, we couldn't swarm like we could on clan wars classic.. Once again we need calling of piles AND location of the pile, we can't flail about looking for the pile.

Also, some TPL members, mainly Funnisam and Readtodd and some other top levels were chilling at the portal. I'm glad Damon made the call after a few of us, like me, said they were chlling there. Not only did we kill those off or scare them away, it gave us a huge defensive boost.

A side note, I think it was funny that where I'd see a few of us looking for the pile and I start to attack someone, they follow suit, and after the death, they followed me to the main pile :D Ice, we make one hell of a team, the Wolf Unit is the bomb! :wub:

Dude12dragon - April 11, 2009 03:57 AM (GMT)
The war was manditory so means you should be there and even know it was a draw we should of one and golden was right we were all over and people like star has said before don't call your own piles i think thats why we where all over the place well seems that will we do good tommorrow! :)

I know I was doing a terrible job of piling, it was my first war and I couldn't ever find the guy that Damon was callin. I know me and Wolfe koed one guy big time tho. :lol: I was basically lookin for health bars of people under attack and seeing if they were enemies.

I also know that I haven't made it to many wars, and I barely made it to this one. I always have stuff going on and I'm sorry, but I get to all of them that I can. I will definitely be at the one tomorrow tho.

i think that any more than two groups would start getting confusing

Lamb Bug - April 11, 2009 12:02 PM (GMT)
Weeyin and others, stop it.

Good war. Did anyone know I was there for the last three minutes? (I like to think I made the difference :P It was also a record time from turoths to clan wars :P)

101laxkid2 - April 11, 2009 01:35 PM (GMT)
Woot! my first war! and I only died like 4 times :(

it was a great comeback, down to like the last second :o

I agree with star tho, the piles location ahs to be called as well. I was kinda floating around because I had no idea where the pile was, then Id just try and follow damon wherever he went and whoever he attacked lol

It was definitely fun to, and we tied tpl who I think outleveled us by alot (from what I saw)

animal magik - April 11, 2009 09:01 PM (GMT)
-hopes I'm not one of the people Golden is talking about in first post-
Sorry I didn't show, was 7 am for me and my parents got me up at 6:20 and we left home before 7 for a 3 hour drive to a place called Kingarooy to visit my grandparents camping there. -.-
We drove over a place called Boobir Creek :o just outside a place called Blackbutt. <_<
