Osa has 4 wars now (not counting RL3 & CL5) and 2 coming up , no way to add one more now..

This is true. We have CL5, RL3, Empire, VVV, TSM, and CC4, plus negotiations with another clan. Our guys don't want anything else right now.

Want to go to war then?


I like playing a lot vs anyone, but my clan doesn't do too many challenges at one time like OSA and I dont mind being in only 2-3 challenges at a time because I can just play random stuff. It would be up to mudpuppy and everyone else ;)

Suppose someone were to offer you a challenge if the 1v1s were taken away and each player were only allowed to play X number of times so that everyone got to play almost equal amount of games?

Well if you truly want truly random perhaps you should make a list of clans and randomly select your opponent. By excluding so many clans and only targeting a top elitist clan you are removing an element of random as well.

Because 1v1s would make it too random. You might as well just draw straws to determine who wins in a 1v1. Then again maybe you should do that for the whole challenge if you don't mind 25 of the games being based on dice ;)

So you actually believe that there is no skill in winning a 1v1 game?

If both players know what they are doing it is 100% skill. I'd say on the whole a 1v1 match is gonna be 80% luck and 20% skill.

DBC will hold their own against any clan with this. We are all great players, just we suck at playing scripted maps that the other clan picks out.


this made me laugh, fair play! "we are all great players", we just suck at what being a clan is all about :lol: :lol: :lol:

Are you willing to decrease the 1 v 1 to 20% so that this will be medal eligible?
WIll the 1 v 1 games be a set of 5 games for 1 point like normal or is it just 1, 1 v 1?

TNC will do this
