The fix is to just name yourself one of the big teams names, then they run around giving you resources http://i.imgur.com/BUL4tMX.png
It's like your a virus, taking resources from them.
Very well, if you can't beat them, you might as well join them.
I prefer to say I'm using them :p
That's the spirit! It's like being a team player! (except you aren't... xD )
