Introduction

So, this paper is going to be a bit shorter than previous ones due to the lack of interviews and the fact that this week has been relatively slow. I hope you enjoy reading it anyway!

True Fear VS Hug This

In recent days True Fear Oped hug this for the second time this server. Over all True Fear managed to take one more city (well done pgalland25) making a total of 4 cities taken. Whilst this score is not good in any way i think it is still good to see that True Fear is trying. They may have also taken more cities from Hug This if it weren't for revolt cancelling that used against them. I don't know that for certain though so take what i just said with a grain of salt. Over all I would not call this OP a full success but props to James going at hug this again.

A nightmare for Nightmares

As i am sure many people have noticed nightmares of elysium recently lost a few of their top players including Stannis-storm who has already done two interviews for this paper. Their is no denying that is a great blow to the entire alliance as losing top players is never good and stannis leaving would definitely be hurting moral inside the alliance. Personally i am very curious as to why Stannis left nightmares but i feel like that if he wanted the whole world to know he would have said so by now. Due that i have not decided to try and ask him to be posted in this paper. But, it is without a doubt sad to see an alliance that could do a lot be severely limited after losing arguably some of its best players. But, nightmares are not done yet. they are still eating up infinitefood and have taken another city from NONAME. This is a great blow to them but they still have a chance of doing well.

The calm before the storm

So, this week has been slow. Very slow. One OP from True Fear near the end and nightmares losing some players is all that has happened. Furthermore, hugs have not taken many cities at all apart from their usual string of exchanges and a few ghosts/ inactives. This is because a few of the players are on VM but that does not seem to be all the reason. My hunch is that hugs have something brewing. Whether they are going down South for those lovely Beaches (and BP) or if they are heading for another trip through the west (although, they have done that a lot this server) I don't know. Either way i would suggest that every team that borders hugs lock their doors at night and get some decent sleep. Because, you never know when it will be taken away from you...

Conclusion

Thats all I've got for this week I'm afraid. not much going on and i decided to not do any interviews this week either. As things spice up next week (when the storm breaks) their will definitely be a longer one (or a shorter one depending on who gets hit). Thanks for reading :)

Just so you know for later times @jooser, Young Guard is Old Guard's academy. Their still one of the smaller alliances, but not as tiny as they seem currently.

Also great work to both you and Isaaa. From my history on this account and Portopolis as well in the U.S, i have always loved the forum concept and wish it was more active.
Sidenote: I actually really miss the old days of Grepolis, where you could spawn in ocean 32, and their were so many wars and alliances (as in pacts) going on across the world. Wish their was a Domination server like this or at least a Domination server with my favorite settings.

Unit Speed: 3, World Speed 1: It leads to small alliances fighting over a corner of an ocean the entire server, and is certainly the most intense form of Grepolis I've ever played.
