    on world 4 what tribe where you on,,,i ask this because i made as high as rank 5 at one point with enough villages to take over 3 hours to cycle through them , and i dont recall your name being in the big tribes that are now in domination. I however do know sun tzu, he was beat into my brain in management training years ago and now i manage 300 plus employess over 4 states. Point being i see a lot of eager new tribe founders that are trying to use certain points of view or certain , must do rules (ops will be managed to further the tribes end game goals) , which i have found playing domination on 2 worlds in tw2 that a tribe that micro manages every op will end up alienating the more aggressive and experienced players , especially coiners who know how to fight, play strategically and grow quickly, making them slow down to take part in a tribe op instead of letting them join together and play and partake in ops with those of like mind, skill, growth and coin will again smother them and they will leave the first time you tell them no or try and dictate how the do their ops. not everyone grows at the same pace, can be available all the time or coin as much as others, so you will always have those the jump way out in front and dont want to be stifled. there dedication will still be to the tribe and domination if left only to play their game, and they will of course obey tribe rules like no barb munching, or no claim jumping or mandatory defense support, but aside from that, they will want to dominate and make a point that they are the best and race for the top spot. you may want to reconsider your approach on ops and making people work together, i for one do not want to sit around with 5 nobles waiting for my squad to catch up or for your managed op to be accomplished. just an fyi, we need more organized tribes that provide a good challenge to a dominate tribe like the one i am in currently or have been on every world ive played. so i say these things to help you not challenge you or tell you your wrong, just friendly advice so that you understand less is more when it comes to dominate aggressive players and coiners which your are looking for. yes having squads is great for larger targets or a province all red and especially for defensive support, but putting chains on a dog thats meant to run will always get you bit

    we only ask your tribe and name is because alot of players talk a big game but truly dont know the realities of tribe leadership and keeping things but letting people the aggressive players take off and dominate while being required to help out in missions or defense support.. its kind of a big deal reputation , you can post a nice post but when specifics on former game play rises questions and doubt which does not help with membership. being transparent along with a solid plan is always best. hide things and you will be found out and left to fend for yourself or even internally nobled. agian im just trying to help, you are on the right track.

    No tigers,

    First and foremost, I thank you for taking the time to write all of that and offer your advice. I am familiar with your name, I've seen it around on the server(s) and here on the forum; your reputation is commendable to say the least. With that said, I'll see if I cannot address some of your main concerns without picking apart your post unnecessarily or taking anything out of context.

    I stand by my decision to remain a new character/player with no history. I could see how some may think this is in an effort to hide something but I know differently and so I am comfortable standing by my decision knowing there is nothing to return to bite me in the ass later. If this decision costs me a few good players then that is certainly regretful but I remain hopeful that even those players would eventually see the quality tribe that we become and will eventually come around to joining us.

    I honestly have no intentions of micro-managing anyone directly or indirectly. Even with a lower member cap, I cannot imagine trying to orchestrate every action of 50+ players. This is the very reason one would opt to recruit quality over quantity after all, so that players can be allowed to grow and expand by their own means with guidance from their leadership and the support of their fellow tribesmen. I may have misspoken in the original post I'll have to review and edit that if that's the case; we will have defensive and offensive op's but these situations will be situational and only as needed to solidify our ownership of a province or move our front-lines to serve a specific purpose. Outside of that, we let the eagles soar and celebrate their victories.

    You are absolutely correct in saying that someone can write a nice post but have no idea of what it takes to lead a tribe. I have no foundation of TW2 leadership to stand on and I may fail, this is also true. However, I have in my professional life - much like yourself - served in a leadership position for many years and have had extensive formal leadership training through the military. I believe that this real world leadership experience, my in-game experience/studies, and a combination of my belief in transparency and can-do attitude will get us far.

    I am no dictator by any stretch, I am a very open person to constructive criticism and advice by anyone willing to lend it. I may not always agree and choose a different path, however, I will never be accused of at not hearing someone out and weighing the options regardless of their position of authority or life experience.

    I hope this helps and again, I am sincere in my appreciation of your advice in the last two posts.

    If I had the time,this is genuinely the most interesting premade thread I've seen to date on TW2...If I had the time. I'll keep an eye out for you in the future whenever I get done with my world, I might be at a point I can join you if you ever run onto other worlds.

    As a player of ye olden days TW1 worlds 7,8,10, and 23 and a bit of TW2 as well I have to say I'm excited about starting on W10 and seeing how the tribe goes. Proioxis I you have a lot of good things to say and I'm confident you will lead the tribe in a solid direction. Not saying I'm some awesome dominant player but I've been around a while and this is definitely the right spirit and attitude. So definitely count me in and all the people I bring from W9 with me.

    i will say i do like your long posts, lol, i get made fun of all the time for explaining everything and giving the entire picture the entire time. even at work. what people dont understand is you cant understand certain decisions if you dont have the entire picture. you will be following someone or emotionally basing your decisions and responses on something your not familiar with , which only leads to a half job done. so thank you for making me not the only person to be long winded.
    while i still think it would benefit you if you explained more of your past that is your decsion. I do hope that you decide to have a council of leadership that will insight into decisions and allow for a majority decision of this small council so that a situation can be made by different eyes and brains seeing and procesessing information different to come up with the best approach. the worst tribes i have every been on is one ONE person is in control of everything. I imagine having a military background working with diferent groups of that combine to make the whole , you have to work with a group of people to insure the best possible outcome. in this game a dictator or one man leader who makes all decisions, again only hampers peoples growth, hurts morale and feelings as there will be stars on you team that want to help and their success will do nothing but benefit you.
    you sound like you have a great plan , so ill leave you with my last little tip above. Dont be the guy the puts himself as the found/leader/commander/dickhead :) you will loose. let other participate, plus the tribe as a whole will feel better knowing that there are 5 or 6 well versed and experienced players all working to make the best decisions for the team. above all else that is the best decision you can start off with. ask anyone what really strong tribe ruined themselves and then ask why,,,,and you will get the same answer.

    I would be interested in signing up if not for the formation of our tribe. I am sure we will one day meet each other in world as we both will have the exact same style of play, with the exception of recruitment style. We won't use the forums to try to start off large, but will use our core and expand outwards with strict recruiting along the way.

    What section of the world do you plan to start in?

    LAW will certainly have a small council of experienced players. The benefits of this are too many to list in it's entirety but most importantly are the different viewpoints in tribe leadership, networking through existing contacts, and the diversity in managing war time operations. Not to mention, it enhances the window in which someone from leadership will be online when immediate attention is required.

    We will start in the SW, best of luck to you and your tribe.

    I cannot entertain this discussion here because it is not the place for it, but I will say this: There are many great people in history that had brilliant outlooks, accomplishments, and tactics in life who were otherwise thought to have major flaws in other aspects. Respecting Sun Tzu's approach to war does not necessarily mean I agree with everything he did or the way in which he did it.

    I honestly do not have time to re-explain so here is what I posted in our internal forums. I wish everyone well and really hoped to have more time in-game and in battle. Until next time...

    That's a shame, but completely understandable. I was very excited to see what your leadership abilities were like and looked forward to meeting you on the battlefield in one way or another. Best of luck and I hope things turn around for you and yours.

    Sorry to hear that mate. Hope you and your family do well. A few months ago my grandma died which forced me into a similar situation over on E world. If you need anybody to talk with, feel free to drop a PM :O.

    Best wishes, Proio. I was looking forward to crossing swords with you, but I'll be sure to give your tribe hell in your place. ;)

    I never really had a chance before to say thank you for the kind words and support. My father did end up passing away and it's taken me longer than anticipated to get back in-game but I've restarted on US13 to get back in the swing of things. Who knows, maybe Martial Law will see fruition again on US14 or 15.

    Thanks again for the amount of support that LAW had seen on these forums and the members when the server went live, also for the support when I had to step down and out.

    See you all on the battlefield...
