Pella GazetteHi there fellow citizens of Pella. Welcome to the fourth edition of the Pella Gazette.
I am Theyank and I am here to bring you guys the freshest news from this world and some exiting interviews with prominent members of our top 10 alliances.
NewsThis week’s news will be somewhat light as I still have to work like crazy.
“The big war”, MOS and co vs. Silver and co.
There are claims on the forum, in the Milestones of Pella thread http://forum.en.grepolis.com/showthread.php?37222-of-Pella, that there are two coalitions working against each other.
MOS claims that Silver, The Nights Watch, Elite Ones and The Chosen Few are working together against them, and Silver claims Mors Omnia Solvit, Soul Stealers and The Shadow League are working together against them. Of course both sides deny the other sides claim.
If we then look at the total conquest, according to grepostats, we see that the score is:
MOS, SS and TSL vs. Silver, EO, TCF and TNW: 64 – 53
Which in my eyes looks like a pretty even fight.
However if we break this up to see who are actually fighting we get a somewhat different picture:
MOS vs. Silver: 35 - 4
MOS vs. Elite Ones: 3 - 0
MOS vs. The Nights Watch: 8 - 0
MOS vs. The Chosen Few: 4 - 0
The Chosen Few vs. Soul Stealers: 2 - 1
The Chosen Few vs. The Shadow League: 0 - 0
Silver vs. Soul Stealers: 0 - 0
Silver vs. The Shadow League: 38 - 7
Elite Ones vs. Soul Stealers: 9 - 5
Elite Ones vs. The Shadow League: 0 - 0
The Shadow League vs. The Nights Watch: 0 - 0
Soul Stealers vs. The Nights Watch: 1 - 0
From what we can see here it looks like MOS is fighting everyone, and winning all over the board. Only Silver is fighting TSL, and is still winning that one. Everyone but Silver is fighting SS, and SS is only up against TNW.
So if we are to draw any kind of conclusion to this I would say that it is probably not two coalitions fighting against each other. It is MOS fighting everyone, and no one fighting back, Silver fighting MOS and TSL, losing one and winning the other, EO, TCF and TNW fighting SS, somewhat evenly matched so far.
Play for Keeps Vs. Lords of Pella Elite
In the cute and peaceful oceans 75 and 76 a major and a minor alliance are in war with each other. The names of these alliances have been heard by some of us already, here in these forums. This war is going on between Play for Keeps and Lords of Pella Elite.
RTSgamer2010 (a.k.a. jorisva1) has interviewed both sides of the war and will try to get you some background information on this interesting war.
At the very first, I want you to give a location on this war. The current war plays in ocean 76 and slowly heading into ocean 75.
Lords of Pella Elite - Play for Keeps
The Start of the War
According to Play for Keeps the war started because PfK wanted ocean domination. They are in ocean 76 and don’t want to share an ocean with others. With this in mind they started heading up north and attacked a few of the “Noobs of Pella” (so they are called by PfK). But when the first conquer happened, the war started. Their leader, Stephenwi, gave Play For Keeps a warning that they denied. With the simple reason that “we were not going to be pushed around by some alliance” says Bend24, leader of Play for Keeps. This is the beginning of this small, but interesting war.
Most of the players in Lords of Pella Elite didn’t even notice that they were in war until they got a warning of their leaders that Play for Keeps was getting a presence in the south of their territory. But the explanation of Stephenwi sounds: “When we were in a war with AoE they started conquering our inactive players, mainly from our academy alliance” (NOTE: the academy was disbanded)
The war itself
First of all I (RTSgamer2010 a.k.a jorisva1) have looked into stats. 12 conquers in this war have been made already. All were in the benefit of Play for Keeps. They seem the be leading the war with 12 to 0. Here the conquers of PfK against LoPE:
I have asked to both sides how they think the war is going. Play for Keeps feel that the war is going very well, with what we should all agree if we see the stats. Bend24 dedicated one of his cities to keep a scoreboard on this war.
Asking one of their main members I got the answer that at the time of the conquests they were to busy with AoE to keep track of PfK. In the meanwhile they also had internal issues ( a player deleted all their forums etc…) so they really had to build it all up again. But with the words of LoP:” And I think it's ok for me to say that relative to PFK, they just awoke the Sleeping Giant which of course we are to them. And from here on out it only gets worse for them.” So maybe the tide will turn in favor of Lords of Pella Elite?
Both sides expect their enemy to last for a long while though. Bend24 describes them as “ they do not seem the type to rollover, to stubborn and proud.” The only fear of PfK is that, when they start heading north, Lords of Pella will call their allies(White Eagles) for help. Just as they did with AoE. Some said they do it because they can’t handle their own wars, and the contrary still have to be proven. Stephenwi says that he’s assured that Play for Keeps will keep on fighting until their last city. So only time will tell what alliance will break first.
And last but not least, I asked both sides how they would describe their enemies. Some of these were quite personally, others were on the alliance itself. Play for keeps describes LoPE as a “big, uncoordinated MRA who feels that number and size are whats the most important”. Mainly he, Bend24, describes them as a bad alliance, with a few good players.
Brickstaylor, whom we have already seen a few times on this external forum, says Play for Keeps have been lucky until now. “They took wisely advantage of being on the right spot on the right time” it sounds. However he’s glad “for their presence and this war. We have a lot to learn still, and PFK will be a great stepping stone to put our re-reformulated plans into action and gain experience as the next alliances we face get even better.”
But if we ask Stephenwi again he calls PfK “a bunch of cocky players that think just because a few of them have experience that they are better than everyone. They are just beyond incredibly annoying”.
So now I tried to give a small history on the war, with a few different point of views of both sides. Also facts have been told.
I hope you enjoyed reading.
