[Record Post] A discreet server , INT/CRU , Cooperative work between alliances on the Lost Island. Lost Island S2 (Batch 4)

Lost Island Diary Season 2
30/08:
The Lost Island event was quite expected on our server. However, some people, considering the previous season, did not want to participate. We only have 3 active alliances on the server, so grouping all our participants together would have been a good thing to allow us to work together. At least that’s what I think.
In order to participate in the island and to relaunch our server, I was able to recover an old empty alliance that used to be one of the strongest alliances. This would allow the participants to be grouped together in it but I don’t know if the other alliances would agree to this. I had also started recruiting from the previous official migration despite the fact that many feared a potential influx of pirates, and it paid off. Yesterday, when the preview was opened, I had contact with other players who were probably very motivated to participate. On top of that they are strong and have won their first season on the island, which would be a real plus for our server. But we still have to organize ourselves on the island. It would be nice if we could be decided by Wednesday so that we have all the necessary information about our organisation that I can pass on to our potential newcomers. I hope that this cooperation will go well.
From what I could see in the preview, there are a lot of similarities with the previous island but some additions have been made such as the alliance resource tiles, the Goby or the healing system which I read is based on mushrooms. Some feedback I’ve seen has explained that the mushroom healing system is particularly long. We’ll see when we get to the island.
As for the rewards, they look very good, there is a particular interest in the special ants. It’s a shame that all the special ants we usually get in the hatching are not available.

The organisation for the island is finally in place, our new players can come, they are very motivated. We are just waiting for the opening of the cross-server invitations so they can come and then we will all gather in the same alliance. We are very excited to start the island.

The time has come, the registration period has opened and the server invitations with it. The alliance leaving for the island was able to open its recruitment without any problems. My alliance with fewer players with T8 troops was not so lucky, especially since we had to exclude some strong players due to some problems beforehand. Also, my R5 was king but couldn’t open the CSI, so I got the R5 position back, now we just have to organize with the other alliances to fulfill the prerequisites and open the recruitment so we can welcome more players and bring them to the alliance that will go to the island. This cooperation between alliances that we were looking for on the server is going pretty well for the moment, let’s hope we have enough players to open the recruitment before the end. As for the reception of players, despite a successful recruitment with a group of players, they did not come and did not even warn us. This is a pity. But no time to mope, we had to recruit, maybe we’ll manage to get enough new players for the island, otherwise we might have one less alliance on the server…

After it was discovered that the players who were supposed to come would not come, it was difficult to recruit. Normally every player knows where he has to go because recruitment is done in advance, it is difficult to recruit at the last moment in a hurry. Fortunately, the CRU alliance with whom we will be going to the island has managed to find a group of about 20 players, so we can have more peace of mind now. The difficulty remains to open the csi at INT to be able to welcome more players but I’m sure we’ll manage, and once we’ve filled a maximum of space, we’ll be able to send all the volunteers from INT to CRU and we’ll all leave together for a great adventure!

In the last few days we managed to recruit about 50 players thanks to the cooperation of INT and CRU, we managed to open the recruitment at INT on Tuesday and all the players could join CRU the next day. On the other hand, we had the bad surprise to see that the players who arrived at CRU on Wednesday would not have access to the pangolin ranking rewards, which is a shame.
So we were able to get together and conduct our first expedition and it went very well, we had a lot of fun. I even met up with someone I had contacted for the migration!
The expedition was intense and exciting, which augurs very well for the island

The day finally arrived, our island leader was able to select the area she wanted for the island, we got the pink area with the crab. We were also able to start getting to know our opponents for the island. There was CRU, NiR, SOG, VVV, TKO, LOS, HAN and PEA. The VVV are apparently old friends of some of the players we recruited, they would have crossed paths on the previous island. The TKO seem nice, one of their players seemed interested to give his testimonies. Little contact with other alliances at the moment, NiR seems to be an Italian alliance. The matchmaking seems to be quite balanced, the powers are equal, each alliance has between 2G and almost 3G of power.

We finally arrived on the island this morning. The seasonal chat seems very active whatever the time of day, it was already talking about passing the tree so that each alliance can have the reward of occupying the opulent tree. The HANs are already at 20,000 points, apparently their buildings are a little closer together than on other initial zones so they could make a few more fortresses. As for CRU, we have access to a back zone and a neutral zone to access the central zone, making a total of 3 potential wonders. But we must first acquire the level 11 troops which will be unlocked after several season milestones, so possibly in a week. And this story of limited number of turns is very annoying, especially with the clay limit per alliance… The atmosphere in the alliance chat is good, I’m happy that the cooperation is going well. The only thing we need is a bit of organization so as not to attack the fortresses with the grace of a Gallic village doped up with magic potion rushing on a Roman patrol!

As for our server, it has become calmer, it must undoubtedly create a nice void with one alliance less out of the 3 in total. That’s a lot less anthills. For some, the island is not a place to get strong despite the rewards one can get.

We started harvesting today in order to have our points for tomorrow and an idea came to me: The alliance tiles on the island are very practical because there is no need to fight between us to have high level tiles which are limited in number on the server. There, compared to the quantity of resources, it would be an equivalent of level 8 tiles. But in my opinion it would be good to import this system of alliance tiles on the servers to facilitate harvesting. And to make this system more fun, the alliance tiles could be placed by R4 or R5, they would then start at level 1 and by a donation system like alliance evolutions, these tiles could level up, increasing the amount of harvestable resources.

The last few days have been very hectic: we started with a small level 5 building but it was so easy that we finished it in 10 minutes, then we tackled a level 6 building but it didn’t take much longer and there again we were asking for more. There was so much motivation in the alliance, and we were also stronger than on the first island so that helped a lot. We did a level 7 settlement in 15 minutes, we were so excited. Yesterday we did the wonder of our initial area, the crab ruin. I had estimated that we would do it in 30min but in the end 20min was enough to take it down. We were the first to get our wonder. The next buildings were quite far away and we had to plan what to do next. We have two choices: the twin conchs area at the top blocked by a reinforced level 5 passage, and the level 7 passage at the bottom, also reinforced, which leads to the strategic area. We saw that one of our neighbours seemed to be in a hurry to reach this area too so we decided to go for the level 7 passage while keeping an eye on the upper area. We intend to get our 3 wonders. The construction of our towers is going well, maybe tomorrow we will be in front of the level 7 passage. It remains to be seen whether we attempt an attack while it is reinforced or whether we wait two weeks…

A little scare during the night: our blue neighbours, the NiR, tried passage 5 towards the twin conch area while it was still reinforced. Our neighbours tried everything but after 10 minutes, barely half a million soldiers had been defeated. They wouldn’t show a report but the only thing they told us was that the stats of the garrisoned soldiers had probably never been reached by a player. We knew strong players in the past, but to reach this level of appreciation, never. So we decided to stop our advance towards the level 7 passage, also reinforced, and this morning we made our way to the lvl 5 passage closest to the wonder of the twin conches. Once there, one of our players attempted an attack and shared the report with us. The only thing to say was that we certainly couldn’t pass it. Even our strongest player didn’t have half the stats of the soldiers garrisoned in the passage. So we’ll eventually build towers to a level 7 settlement and save our clay carefully afterwards to allow us to advance to the wonder when the time comes.

Today is a great day: we have succeeded in taking the wonder located in the neutral zone of the twin conches. But now, our blue neighbour NiR and our orange neighbour PEA are both coveting our territory so we are sandwiched, we try to push NiR back and then we will push PEA back. We have to hurry to secure the territory because in a week, the level of the passages 7 will drop and it will be a race for the wonder of the strategic place. On top of that we will have a lot of lairs to recover and a path to the passages to finish.
But our priority is to find a way to push back the NiR.
On their side, HAN and LOS are fighting for a passage since this morning.
