We don't expect you to agree as a whole, every clan is going to have a mixed camp on the issue.
But there should be a prevailing consensus from your group that you as a clan play by. Right?
...maybe that's where we're wrong.

For the record AoC does not intentionally miss turns. Any sort of tactics would be dealt with internally by us.
We have our code of conduct.


I am also interested in IA's stand on taking advantage of this loop hole. From this post in the CLA, it would appear that the leadership, at least, is against it in theory. I think the right thing for IA to do is to admit that this was the wrong way to play the game, and offer to make it right by redoing the game(s) in question. How refreshing would that be? No C&A report, no locked thread, just clans working out a disagreement like adults. It might even convince a few great players who are on their way out to stay a while.

Though Dako brings up a good point about just not allowing unlimited reinforcements.. i just dont like the option of abusing the system, i personally dont want to be put in a situlation where i feel i can gain an advantage by intentional not ending my turn..

I kind of like the playoffs of the league, i can see the merit to take it out to have two different competitions but i would of liked to see an expansion in the playoff games.. instead of 18 games maybe 41,

just my two cents


Well spotted Denise.

So that is 100% of IA leadership that thinks this tactic is wrong, they have both expressed this opinion in the CLA. Since the CLA reps are there as the voice of their clan, it is only natural for the rest of us to assume that the whole clan would be against it.

It is understandable, that one or even two of their members forgot what game they were playing at the time and played the tactic without thinking, but they have had three members use it. Since we then offered them the chance to redeem themselves and both leaders (after consulting the players in question), decided to decline our offer and keep the advantage they'd gained, we can only assume that the whole clan have changed their stance on it and now consider it to be fair... Poor show :(

Our participation in future events is likely to be dependent on it. We want to play this game the way it's meant to be played, we hope that most people would see it that way.


That's a very reasonable condition. Yet, it's very sad that this must now be included with the likes of other conditions. Am I wrong in thinking that exploiting this loophole is a rarity among clan games, or does it occur more often than I thought?

Has anyone mentioned the counter that timing out loses a forting opportunity? That may be IA's new perspective. Of course, the counter's counter is that a person in danger of being eliminated need not be making forts anyway and that effectively stealing a card from the opposing team is much more detrimental.

The game setting is called "spoils" for a reason. . .when you conquer a territory, you collect the bounty from whatever you just pillaged.

Circumvention of this setting by "timing out" is no different than circumventing the setting of fog of war by hacking into an account of an opposing player to see into the fog. Both are methods to get around the design of the chosen game.

When the settings are agreed upon by the teams, the teams should honor the spirit of those settings, even when a loophole exists to manipulate the outcome in your favour. At best it is a crafty scheme, and at worst, it is outright cheating. Either way, it is dishonorable and violates the integrity of the clan world. This is not some random public game against some pack of noobs. When you enter the clan domain, there are rivalries, relationships, community, honor, etc.

I hope that there can be a happy and satisfactory resolve to this. I do not blame anyone for choosing this route initially, but when ethical issues are raised and brought to the attention of everyone, I would expect it to be fixed and resolved. There is no reason to hold onto a dishonorable tactic when it can all be worked out.
