Short Stories: Kingdom Mismanagement
Short Story: Kingdom Mismanagement
I am in a relatively young Kingdom that is ruled by an alliance that really, truly cares nothing about winning KvK KE. There is little to no preparation or coordination work done before any event and that is just the beginning of the problem…
While it’s a common theme to have a purge before a Kill Event our king, almost to spite other aspiring Alliances, will declare Free For All (FFA) battle one day prior to an event and run it right into the KvK KE. The king’s alliance will attack anyone and everyone except his allied alliances that will submit to doing the same… even attacking other strong players and alliances that could be quite integral to a victory in a kill event.
On our last KvK KE one week ago we’d had peace for longer than I’d known it in our kingdom and I believed things had begun to change. I was a 1.6B Power Rally Trap that scores fairly well in our KvKs so I wasn’t overly concerned with needing to be shielded… Suffice it to say I left the game for a time only to come back to find a kings allied Alliance that I had never once attacked and have had good dealings with had wasted around 17M T4 trying to zero my account… I have to say I was quite pissed off but I probably should have shielded… I was also a little proud as I carried an amount of meat shield that never allowed them to reach my T4, take my Hero and in fact took their Heroes several times on Rallies. At the very least I stayed in Colossus gear before leaving the game with no shield. I was heavily damaged and spent most of the event trying to do a quick thrown together rebuild to participate, and I did, but it didn’t go as well for me personally as I’m accustomed.
Overall I can’t be too mad at anyone but myself but still… FFA leading up to and running into KvK KE is absurd to me.
I would like to hear your absurd kingdom mismanagement stories in the comments section.
