Figured it’s best to get the full story from the guy on the inside, rather than having a bunch of conflicting posts here.
I, and many others, have just been kicked from BAR by Psi just as our attacks on LAN were landing. Our alliance was officially lead by Psi, but I believe you can ask anyone in the alliance who our leader was, and their answer will not be Psi. We planned to attack LAN tick 740, since we did not want to spend the rest of what should be an era that teaches everyone how to play to be about sitting, building, and constantly nuking those we had beaten. We preferred fighting over battlehugs.
By we, I mean pretty much every single active member in our alliance. Psi apparently did not agree, and rather than leaving his alliance to make it clear he did not, he kicked our active members who did want to play this era and then left himself.
It’s messed up BAR completely, the ones who haven’t been kicked are leaving at the moment. I really really believe this is very sad. To me, this event was about teaching newbies how to play, making intermediate players better, and meeting new people. A leader’s task in this would be to make sure those newbies are taught, that attacks are coordinated so that people learn you need to work as a team to win eras, and to just be there for your team. Psi did not exactly do that, which is honestly fine. It didn’t matter, because we had other players who stepped up. Matt, Trajic, Redwurm, Youssef, LolGF, Zealot, Feitan, Hitmo, Carter, Aaryan, Muha… We had a lot of people that were both very active and that would coordinate people. On top of that we had a really really good group of people I had never played with before but that did extremely well. That’s the part I’m most sad about, our guys deserved the win. Yes, LAN had the big boosters meaning they had way more power (since it was hard to get income on this event) but our guys played better. That is why we wanted to go for the win, to show that just boosting, taking the easy war and sitting and building does not get you a win. Battledawn is a war game, not farmville. And I am extremely sad that Psi has decided to ruin all that by disbanding our alliance.
Anyway, shout out to Aaryan, Babykong, Ownage, Carter, Redwurm, Feitan, Hitmo, Humza, LolGF, Marco, Matt, Michael, Muha, Abbasi, Ricco, Grust, TheBest, Vesper, Whatismyname, Yoz, Zealot, Muha, Conhor, Braveheart, Deox, dragon Lord, Skizzy, Linas, MP, Decimus, Grust, Puneeth, Prime, Sander, and all those I’m forgetting. We honestly had an amazing team,
