relationship building


My current rank in the game is 4418. Of course this constantly changes, but not by much.
Here's what I'm going to do: Pick 10 random numbers between 4000 and 5000 and use them to look up players with those numbers as ranks. They won't differ from my own rank by much. Then I can study the cities of these 10 players and get ideas about how the best cities are laid out. Those players that I am particularly impressed by, I'll drop a message and introduce myself, maybe even make them my friends. This is the only way I can think of to seek out potential allies.
This is all in addition to my neighbors and guild mates. By the way, my guild is Football Lovers, a fine bunch of people.
So that's the plan. Keep watching this thread for stories of how I will make out.
