The Game Mobile Strike:
I’ve been playing since nearly the beginning and had been in several different alliances on my way up, and because I spent money and time to get to strength and stayed there for a very long time, I started getting offered r4 and sometimes r5 to join lead alliances- but my choices were always in favor of alliances that helped the noobs progress in the game- I started my own alliance strictly for teaching noobs how to play to win. Now I feel the guilt of being complicit in getting people to spend money on the game/ simply because it was true- in order to win you HAD to spend money.
Someone suggested that letting the noobs grow before attacking them was a ploy to get them hooked first.
But you have to realize while playing the game we’re not thinking about getting people hooked for the sake of MS we’re thinking of letting the Nubes get to power so it’s more of a fair fight trying to be so called honorable in the way we play – along the lines of don’t hit the little guy while he’s down, wait till he stands up, you know?
“To make them think they stand a chance?”
Yeah some of the bigs were spending a grand a week to stay on top and pushing everyone else to stay capable- not to his level of course- just enough for filling rallies and to take over when needed.
And I actually was kinda proud of those who took my advice and exceeded my level and through my connections joined the biggest alliance/ spenders in the state and held their lead there until their real life was about to be zeroed.
We thought it was a joke when they told us they had to wait until they were at work or duck out to the rest room just to play the game. Or how the Mrs. / Mr. didn’t know about the credit cards opened just for the game.
They weren’t joking.
Their spouses started questioning missing money, work, and family time, to the point of actually talking divorce.
I told my alliance that I was single and had a decent job and that was how I could afford the time and money needed to stay relevant in the game. At the expense of real life social contact, $0 savings, thousands of real money gone.
