No one did, new thread this time around not many in team C or B. May be due to reward, simply taking a break or whatever else but you should look at the team before joining from nwo on. Hopefully you werent aiming for anything huge seeing as you were low on teammates.
Oh I had teammates, but I deliberately invited www first so lost out on some good allies as I delayed accepting(requesting) from my non-www allies. By going Team V I won't feel obliged to give www members first option next raid.
In fact dimkask and doombringer were my two highest sharing allies - and I would have asked them anyway.
With regard to the amount of people in team B, a lot of guys tried out chasing with Team A.
I have no idea why the interest in Team C was so limited. The only reason I can think of is because of Dena ruining the BB economy by making everything bloodbound. As a result the R rewards are not worth even 1 GH anymore.
I might just as well have chosen team C because when I have Team C allies I want to make sure I reach their target :P
With 3,5 hours to go:
Toughlilpony 187.052.326 shared 8.906.604 (WOW, you sure are one TOUGH lil pony :)
Thanks for that swinkel - I wondered how well I had done.
I'm not interested in Team B as it's too much of a commitment, I like Team C but by declaring I feel obliged to give give www players a chance to accept my ally request before accepting the requests I get from non-www players. The delay in accepting these non-www requests means that the more reliable allies are often full, so I have no option but to accept less reliable allies - this then means I end up with a lower points from my allies. If I go Team V, then I can choose players I know to be reliable from past events - www or not.
It's a shame as I love the whole idea behind this scheme - but at least for Team C it no longer seems to be working.
I have spaces for allies if anyone wishes to send me a request
Another option is if there are too few declerations for Team C at the of the start of the event, only prioritise these declared team C members and just fill the rest with reliable players (no matter if they are www or non-www).
Since prices have go down I didn't really feel rewarded after my last 4 L chases for the effort that it costs. Together with my busy time schedule team C and Team V suit me perfectly. I hope you will give Team C another chance. I like the concept as well and hope with next couple events more people will join us...
I have limited time lately (new function at work, busy family time, nice summer weather) .. so i never know how much i will share .. and i cant promise anything
thats why join team V a lot lately .. i love the feeling of not being obliged (too many obligations already irl) .. but somehow i always share team C or sometimes even team B points
I always accept WWW members first (just because 90% of my normal allies are from WWW :)) but fill the remaining spots with non WWW some hours after the events started
being in team V also means that my allies are not obliged to share anything, but sometimes some wicked players show up (i wont call any names toughlilpony) to give a funny final ranking, even when half of my allies are farming (as they said they do)
so if you want to join team V, you are most welcome, but you should not do it to gain more shared points, as team V doesnt promise anything, and might be very irregular for the shared points
you can always send me an ally request of course, and i will always accept, but keep in mind that i am in team V :-)
we in team V play in the memory of CorinCrow ... or something like that ... hmm maybe we need a slogan ;-)
Lol, Hrqls - considering we are allies in not just BB u know I will always invite/accept you whatever team you declare. I just didn't get my request to you fast enough this time - you were already full.
I'll continue playing as hard as I have already done, but last raid I forgot to declare ally shares - and no-one else even apologised. This time, no Team C player even asked me, just some Team V - even tho 2 of them shared fantastic points!
Last tower one of the declared Team C players hardly contributed, and ive noticed that he hasn't logged in since. Possibly his phone broke and he couldn't log in. Again that meant I lost out on a "good" ally. I'll continue declaring for Team C, but in future I'll just give www members a shorter window before I accept alternate invites...
@Ktilqr : you are always welcome in team V ... i just meant that you have to take into account that the shared points fluctuate a lot depending on real life pressure of its members and wether they need to farm more resources or not
I have an idea : lets try to get an evenly distributed team V : number of men = number of women ;-)
Going Team C. If I start getting login problems again I'll let my allies know through this thread. But except for a few periods where I couldn't connect for a few minutes I was ok in WBT.
Got 2-3 spaces open for new allies.
Add me to your allies Ktilqr. What is your IGN?
Brett - you always get sent a request....
Just a heads up - got a family do this weekend and travelling 400 miles by road tomorrow. I will log on when I have reception, but Scotland is mostly 2G, and I won't have wifi. Hopefully I have shared the target now, but I might not be able to give the totals. I'll try and post if/when I can
In case I can't post later - if I can I'll update this.
20 hours to go

Freerider is on trial for TeamC and I am happy to ally him for the Tower if he wishes as I've had less from my non-WWW allies in the past, even if he doesn't reach the target for Raid. It's still early and he could still make it.
Will send event ally request to all those WWW in my allies - but I won't risk losing my good non-WWW allies so the request won't hang around for ever. One of my non-WWW allies gave me over 1million points last raid. He actually beat dimkask34.
Freerider, I'm willing to ally you again if you want.
Falcon, I'll need to clear out some allies but I can add you. I'm UK & I post ally scores about midnight UK - but I'm happy to support WWW whether they are team V or C.
As a tip, I aim for day x 200k - 200k day 1, 400k day 2 (600k total) ....... It seems to work for me, I managed well over Team C requirement last raid. I run on natural replenishment.
Added @Brett ty! Add me in also Ktilqr would be great, I am in no doubt I would meet the req for Tier B but since I messed up last time and WWW now requires refferal I'd rather do it this way to kinda "prove" myself :) Even if im just planning to farm I ended up rank 2-3k
I generally look to rank for the EP reward or things like the recent Helios Coins (I have my shiny M even if its unusable :p), but last tower I had some time and a ton of HB's so I wanted the experience of running for a L, unfortunatly only 1 of my allies does L runs so I ended 398, kinda showed me that I need at least reliable allies to ever run for a L again, bang went 500 Elixir 20 MD 17 HB's!!
Ok - a few hours to go. I have my fingers crossed that I have got the 300k or will have by the time it closes but I may just fall short. If so please accept my apologies but I managed to pull very few elites so tended to get low points on the raid bosses.

Craptastic16 - shared 3,647 (I hope that is because he has unclaimed rewards and not due to lack of effort)
Thank you everyone and I hope those going for the Legendary are successful.
I was on a bus, so I didn't really get to not everyone's points. Just saw my own. Points are lower than they should have been. Was in Mexico for the last four days and didn't realize I don't get international 4G. Could only play when I had wifi. I feel bad, cause a few people really went hard this Raid, with over 2Mil shared.
Woohoo! I might not have given you 300k swinkel, but at least deepimpulse says I beat it.
This is one area where I did wonder as I'm usually one of the first to join an event. This can make it difficult to know whether I have given enough - even if I'm sure my score is high enough. I only ally some players after a few hours so they won't have got the benefit of my early points.
