LOW was 11 when we beat them. We knocked them back to 19. No respect for that? That's ok. We'll do our best to get your respect. It's our number 1 priority.
I do respect the fact that you guys are playing top 10 competition and your war against Empire looks promising. I didnt mean to sound full of myself but as one who votes in the coaches poll, I was just saying that the loss to TNC was just a head scratching loss in my mind. I'm playing some of your mates in a tourney and you guys are definitely tough to beat to say the least.
TNC was a head scratching loss indeed!!
Actually, I'd like to take this opportunity to throw a little respect at TNC that I don't think they get from some in the top-ranked clans. TNC is actually a very good clan. If they focused on their rank in F400 instead of playing as many wars as possible, they would easily be top 10. I've played with and against many of them and they are just as good of competition as others. The reason they are ranked so low is because of the clans they face. Think about individual score on CC. If you're going to win 60% no matter who you face, then facing lower ranked competition isn't a good way to build your score. It's the same with them. They face clans that are ranked lower and win 24-17 (or whatever the score is) and end up losing points in F400 because of it. Take our current war against VVV as an example, we need to finish about 30-13 to gain points in the war. If we win 29-14 (still a blowout) we actually end up losing points. So, I don't think anyone should look down their noses at TNC or other clans who do not pay attention to F400 rank as much. Just because they don't play to increase their rank, doesn't mean they don't deserve a higher rank...
Anyway, we only lost because of dice and luck and random things.
