Aye this was always a long shot.

I was hoping, as I think Twigley was trying to suggest, that there'd be some real honor/internet points in it for 10 guys who were able to win the round with just the 10 of them.

Given we only ever have to find 2 FTW leaders - Getting their agreement to aim for that goal shouldn't be overly difficult?

Challenge accepted, anyone?

I guess it's more possible now, that there literally are maybe two dozen people who would want to/are capable of playing FTW.

But you can't make it enforceable as you've said, it does have to be an "honour" thing, and who's to say they won't have solos help? I appreciate the idea, but it is, as you say, a "long shot"

this would also require the teams to promise to not "resist" as that would utterly suck as a 10 man team.

sadly, with rampant multis, it probably won't happen. would need some sort of admin type. then again an admin type would be able to make the change.

im not really one for smaller alliances as a rule. but it is a nice idea to have some smaller alliances playing ftw. but i agree with garett. when there are so many who willingly multi, and "cheat".

what possible chance is there that even if 2 alliances of 20 decided to split into 4 alliances of 10 and go all vs all. that the ftf alliances wouldnt come in and dominate. they would call them selves ftf. and all it means is they dont try to win the round or care. but should the opportunity arise, most ftf alliances step it up a gear...

it would be a massive achievement though. as the burn out would be hard core. would be pretty epic to the alliance that achieved it. as the bashing bottom feeding would be much harder, attacking with 10 people an alliance that holds 20, and thats assuming you have all ten on would make gaining land a real mission. might almost force in fighting between the 4 ten man alliances, just because they are potentially easier targets.. would be amazing if anyone went and won the round, id certainly give a tip of the hat. but realistically as nice as it would be i cant see enough people being inclined to play in that way. too little effort and honour and integrity in the remaining playerbase has meant too little trust. and the effort required just to hold together a ten man alliance even if everyone only had ten members, is still more than the playerbase is willing to put in for the vast majority.
