I think you should do a top 12 nowMyLittleUnicorns Guide To The South West Rim
Thought I would add to Slims top 12 and talk a little bit about the south west rim as its a lovely little nirvana in this world
South West Rim Map:
If I did this a couple of months ago the list would be far larger than what it currently is but player numbers have slimmed down and the major factors are shining through.
5. Noble Intentions - These guys had a rough start to the world and most of them have gone through multiple alliances which have collapsed one after another. From Alpha Omega to Ravens Republic to Noble Intentions suggests the history doesn't look good but they have managed to come through and somewhat strongly. Due to the recent merge between NI and The Chosen both of their long games have had to be changed and BP has had to be found due to their complete control of the western side of the south west rim and so due to recent events a war has just about broken out between NI and DF (the two big dogs of the area) With NI apparently taking an early lead of 5-1. Currently own both o36 and o35 and are looking fairly strong. They will swim/float through the next 2-3 months.
9. Drunken Farmers - My personal little pals over in o36, they came from a rather humble start, originally being called De Beer Clan after their founder. Their game plan revolved around taking down EE. Pacts were made on either side with both Avernus and The Chosen in order to assist them with their war. Eventually you can say they won when EE crumbled under the strain due to differing opinions within the leadership and so Drunken Farmers swiftly took control of the ocean 46 picking up some of the smaller EE players. But due to their pacts being on both sides they didn't have a reliable enough source of bp and so the choice had to be made between Avernus and TC. They eventually decided on TC due to increasing hostilities between the two. War broke out and like I said above NI took the early lead. From the rumours I have caught here and there, things may be on the down for them so ill give them a float into a rapid sink within a month or two.
15. Impervious Bustards - We are the final remnants of EE consisting of about 5-7 active useful players. We originally stuck together to see what would happen after our fall and see if any alliances would pick up the slack. Our decision is still yet to be made between which alliance to join but we are currently working alongside DF and the bp has been nice. After the recent collapse of Phalanx we picked up some of the ex-underground members as well but really not all that much is happening for us currently as we are still working our way through the inactives. Things will definitely liven up when we choose our side but until then we will float (hopefully ).
3. The Peaky Blinders/The Dark Exile - These alliances are both situated right on the rim and so comparing them to the rest is a bit unfair. They both have respectable control of their respective oceans and I hope they come through as good alliances to liven up this area again. They will both float for a bit then either merge into one of the alliances above or get eaten by them.
Only really one of these.
NI vs DF & TPB
All in all things are still quite dull down here but with wars slowly starting to happen it might turn into an interesting fight and I wish the best to all the alliances I have mentioned. See you on the battle fields guys!
