Title: Lethality War Recap


Golden arm42 - April 11, 2009 09:10 PM (GMT)
As you know, we fought Lethality today. It was a nailbiter, intense down to the very last few kills, and we managed to triumph by a slim margin. I'd like to thank our allies from TPL for showing up with levels for this one; as allies, they came through when we needed them most, and we combined to pull 32 people, a very strong number. :D:

That being said...the war should not have been close AT ALL. Instead of finishing with 7, we should have finished with at least 15+. Lethality really dominated us this war, and our numbers managed to save us. This is getting to be an old refrain: but we NEED to get our act together and get serious about warring. Showing up once or twice a week to screw around and get wrecked is not only a waste of time but also a blight on AL's character. We need to get it together now, and over the next few days, the warlords and I will work out something. First, the synopsis of this war.

1. Piling This was, by far, our biggest weakness. Our piles were inconsistent (switching from person to person) and not well documented (warlords need to call more; I had no idea what was going on for a good chunk of the time). Warlords, you need to make a call and stick with it; call with authority and get those in line who aren't piling! Members, LISTEN to the warlord; he's in charge for a reason! Later this week, we're going to have a practice that focuses on nothing but piling: it was THAT BAD today.

2. Tanking I'll state right up front that I did a pathetic job tanking today. Of course, I can blame it on the ridiculously laggy laptop I was on (while Lamb hogged the good computer I might add :lol:), but just the same, my tanking performance was embarrasing to the clan. A lot of us got killed really fast in the beginning, so I doubt I was alone in this regard, but we all need to do a better job tanking. On a positive note, I saw three people who tanked like machines today: Mastaofmelee, Sword User, and Readtodd. These three tanked forever and should serve as examples of how tanking should be done.

3. Binding. Especially with TPL, but even just ourselves, we should have had at least 10-15 binders. I know Leth will snipe hard, but still, they tanked us forever because we didn't get in a bind. After I died, I went downstairs and watched Lamb tank and he couldn't move -- literally not move -- before a bind would fly in. We need mass binding if we're going to succeed and move quickly through their ranks.

The above three issues are the main facets of warring, and to be honest, we completely failed on piling, and did mediocre jobs tanking and binding. As a clan, I think a lot of recent success has gone to our head. For the next few weeks, we're going to go back to the basics and get those down. It might not be fun or sexy, but it WILL pay off if we improve on these areas.

My thoughts, feel free to comment. :)

Yup our piling failed
i didn't have a clue who to attk, and when i was in charge and put as leader, no one would listen to me
it really made me mad that i would call piles and half the people would attk another person

Leth snipes hard, when it was my turn to tank i had 3 food left lol..

our piling would be fine if ppl would just LISTEN TO THE CALLER.

I'd like to nominate Mastaofmelee for MVP for th war. When he tanked, it was the turning point. It was 9-9 when LTH selected him as target, he tanked so long, we got it down to 9-7! That's what won this war for us!

Readtodd and Sword User both did a great job tanking! Even though I ended earlier then I wanted to, bout 2/3rds of way through, it ended the way I wanted to! :D

LTH was much harder this time, they made it a requirement to get ventrillo before this war because they knew it was going to be tough, and it showed. They basically whooped us in the beginning, but we got back into it when we unified. Great job guys. Lets have another one!

Thanks Wolfe! :D

I think they were callin me outta bounds at one point, but I wasn't out long and went half the distance I know that we chased one of theirs out. I didn't really know what center bounds meant after we chased that guy, this was my first time in this arena. :blink:

THANK YOU :). We need help on this. Some people werent even trying to attempt to pile.

Eh, i sucked tanking today too, more or less becuase i'm level 77...

Ill start bringing binds too. We should designate a decent 5-15 binders, rather than making it optional and have 1 or 2 people bring them. Ill start bringing some too.

My thoughts too :P

I agree with most of what you said.

And I lagged out marching to the clan wars arena, this comp is fail :(

Redeyes2496 - April 11, 2009 10:35 PM (GMT)
Yeah, the piling definitely needs work on. I'll admit my tanking was pretty bad too; didn't even have time to tank lol. But the piling needs to be worked on, it's really not hard to listen to orders. Also, can we get it so that calls are more clear? Whenever I'm in wars the warlord will make a call, however golden or lamb may make other calls, in which I don't know which to follow?

+1 on that
I made a pile and out of no where lamb made another one while i was in charge.

L i was lost since the first second and never knew who to bind..

damon - April 12, 2009 01:01 AM (GMT)
my bad... i had to do some work and i couldnt make it to the war... next time it will be alot better calling wise whether its me calling or dark.. i already talkd to him

Mudball99 - April 12, 2009 01:45 AM (GMT)
Oh, forgot, can i add something?

We only need the warlords deciding who the pile, and the warlord should be paying very good attention. I think that cause a bit of confusion with the piling.

More piling practice ftw?

Dude12dragon - April 12, 2009 03:05 AM (GMT)
I was one of those 7 to survive lol i own at hugging :D well the bad side was DARK barely called a pile I know dark its your first time being a warlord but try what kid does you did awesome anyways :)

Kerkennah - April 12, 2009 03:17 AM (GMT)
We can practice on random mass clans in w141

Donovan Kays - April 12, 2009 01:01 PM (GMT)

I doubt it; if TPL wants to they can but I'm not going to post because it won't reflect well on us, as they killed more of us despite being down 10 people. <_<

Beserker864 - April 12, 2009 03:32 PM (GMT)
Lol, I'm glad a leader is finally saying what I've been saying for months, piling and binding are our biggest weaknesses. I think a couple war practices just on those two things would go a long way.

Dude12dragon - April 12, 2009 05:40 PM (GMT)
I have an idea for the war practice. the clan splits up into two different teams and we practice piling and hugging on each other by the warlords and leaders can tell us what to do so then we learn to listen to the calling and those two thinks :)
