Sink and Swim Rumbles Chapter 1Part 1
Hello hello and welcome to the Turtle Sink and Swim Series where I, Evil MeIinoe will go over the events of this wonderful world. As many of you know by now, I like to talk a lot so the disclaimer will be included just before I start my list because this is likely to be in 2/3 parts; so if you don't like long reads this sadly may not be for you.
With that being said I would also like to point out that I won't be just including facts as that isn't my style of writing there will be some in there of course but there will also be questions, theories and possibly some map work to back up my theories regarding the events of this server.
Furthermore, for those who don't know English isn't my first language so please, look beyond the grammar errors and also remember, this is just my thoughts so if you disagree on anything I say that's totally fine but please, lets discuss it in a calm manner down below. No need for the claws to come out just yet as it's still super early! Moreover, I will not include any defensive and offensive battle statistics as I believe it's a little too early to go of the data that we have so far.
IF YOU DON'T ENJOY LONG ARTICLES, THIS SERIES MAY NOT BE FOR YOU AS INFORMATION OVERLOAD IS ABOUT TO HIT. ALSO, FOR THOSE WHO DON'T KNOW SQUISHY YOU'LL FIND OUT AT THE END OF THE ARTICLE.
With the disclaimer out the way, lets begin so grab your cuppa, your coffee, your wine and any other form of alcohol and enjoy the read! Stay safe y'all.
1. The Event Horizon - Swim.
Well visiting my home once again and a similar group which played on Andros and beaten Rich and Famous for domination which shows the experience of this team in this particular setting. As I know this lot and it's my crew there will of course be some one sided opinions hence why the "Swim" status. However, I know a lot of people here and came across them in past worlds and I believe we're the strongest team in ocean 45 as things stand. We do have some excellent talent in this team and well, most of us know each other meaning we do not run away if things get tough. 45 definitely has some competition but me being me, I believe we can beat them and control the ocean in the future.
I see a lot of talented players on this server but sticking to Horizon specifically, I would like to point out that Percy V is excellent at motivating the team and he knows how to run the ship. Deuterium is also one of the best players I played with since Pseria. Organised, kind and gives people a chance and those attributes come a long way nowadays. Also, Icas is okay I suppose, just okay because if I say more he may get a lil big headed and it's not safe for the tiny dwarf to get too confident!
You may ask yourself, who will this team be raging a war with? I think that is the wrong question to ask, I think you should be asking this: who won't they be going to war with. But yeah, huge potential to be server contenders and also have a solid core build already in ocean 45. Their team also isn't too scattered which means later on, they're favorites to close down an ocean sooner than other competitors and the sooner it's locked, the sooner they can invade other main oceans. Looking at their record, winter will come to those in 45 and most definitely else where, especially if I have something to say about it like I did on Andros.
2. Pegasus - Sink
The wonderful Pegasus crew a crew which I don't really know too well which could be part of the reason why the "Sink" status is in place. As things stand they seem to be at war with Carebears winning 4v3 which is rather underwhelming in my opinion considering Carebears seem to be a group that is here to gold and have fun, at least their open alliance status gives me that impression. I also Believe Error 404 is hitting Pegasus as well gaining 2 cities of them as well which seems troubling this early on as well. Also, having two "wings" so early with Pegasus II, I'm just not a fan. Xene007 seems to be their outstanding talent and I also know SunTsi is very good if playing at full capacity but the problem I have is, what happens if Horizon comes knocking on their door step? If I'm a Pegasus leader and I see Bears taking 3 cities off me, I am worried about what Horizon can do, or maybe Horizon are already paying them a visit? The fact that Bears and Error are hitting Pegasus give Horizon a huge upper hand and potential to hit from their end as well. I believe Pegasus will sadly suffer first on this server and they may not be with us come two weeks time. It's all to play for in 45 but it looks like Pegasus are in a tough spot. With all that being said, I do hope Pegasus proves me wrong, lets see how you lot get on!
3. Misfits - Swim.
Is it too early to mention potential winners yet? This team looks scary with a lot of talented players and well, they just picked up Moon Breathing and his little crew in ocean 55 which is a huge boost due to the fact that I know how good Moon is and yeah, massive bolster to their roaster and it's just opened the gates to ocean 55 while they lead in 54 as well. Looking extremely good especially for the domination setting. They only slight issue they have is they already need to focus 2 different fronts having to fight both ocean 55/54 however I think this just gives them more slots if I'm honest. I believe 55 as a whole is extremely weak but I do think Shadow Kings and Naughty North could delay their growth in 54 well if they worked together that is, but in a 1v1 Misfits win, even a 2v1 I would put my money on Misfits but it would definitely make it more challenging for them. But yeah, you lot had enough praise from me, big swim but a part of me hopes you lot struggle!
4. DREAM TEAM - Float.
Once again visiting another crew that I don't know too much about when it comes to leadership but I do know some of their players and well, ocean 44 seems to be split in between a few alliances but I personally believe they will have the edge in the end. I would say 44 is the ocean that lacks that 1 dominating alliance and out of the top 4 teams I believe Dream Team has the biggest challenge and that 44 is the ocean that is likely to invade by either Misfits or Horizon. I believe Horizon will lock 45, Misfits will lock down 54 and well, the other two oceans will be open to both of the parties. With Misfits spreading into 55 already I can see them quickly pushing for the who + control very fast which won't be good for anyone in 44. It's really hard to call what will happen here this early but I would that the teams in 44 should work together since Misfits already have 16 cities in the ocean already. They do have some talent such as TeAukura Eliaba and playagain so there is potential here but my gut tells me this crew will make a deal with Shadow Kings to make a join team and kick their inactives in the future while fighting BoI for domination. I know they're picking off some of the Shadow players winning 6v0 but SK aren't a team to back down and that gut feeling tells me this lot will work with them since they're already hitting Colosseum as well. If Misfits rage war in 44 I think Dream Team will need some support which will be Shadow Kings who are a very defensive team from Elis who stuck it out the whole server.
