Top 12

1) Balkan Boyz/Balkan Boyz*- Quietly building in O55. As of right now no losses to either Bad With Names or ThePlague. The main concern I have for them is that they seem to have two cores forming. The primary one is wedged between ThePlague and Bad With Names. The other one is forming in O44/O54 just north of both of these teams. If they end up on a collision course with both, this could spell trouble. FLOAT.

2) Bad With Names/Bad With Numbers-
Best overall team on paper and off to a strong start for winning this world. My concerns would be similar to Balkans. They seem to be having a decent amount of people landing out of core now. With players in O55, O54, O44/North O44. They'll need to bring these guys into the core but otherwise I don't see this being a problem. If Balkans and Plague team up and come after BWN, they'll have both in front of them rather than being wedged in between. SWIM.

3) Hakuna Matata/Fire and Blood/Simba's Pride-
Fairing better than I thought they'd fair in O44. Their main goal should be to either work with BWN or to work with those fighting BWN. I think the later might be more likely as the former probably won't happen without them proving that they can actually put up a good fight. FLOAT.

4) ThePlague-
Right now I think they have the best positioning in the world. They have an ocean north to feed on, the Balkans south to fight and BWN on the other side of a solid alliance. My main concern here would be that they've eaten a few notable players already. They'll have to curb that to stay in it. SWIM.

5) Bazooka Bunnies-
Off to a solid start in O54. They've built up a solid core in their ocean. But can they challenge ThePlague? I gotta go with my gut and say that they can't. SINK.

6) OCEANS VETERANS/Flaming Dragon-
Lets just address this right away. Starting in a rim ocean might be an interesting idea, it worked out well for them in Methone. But whatever compelled them to drop into the ocean behind Bad With Names is beyond me. Even more confusing is the fact that they brought in the Pandagoatium people to work with. They're also reported to be allied with ThePlague. But have positioned themselves far from their help and taken on another bad ally. I don't believe this strategy works out as well as last time. SINK.

7) Double Trouble-
Losing to a lot of teams. Did take a city off BWN though so maybe its not all a lost cause? SINK.

8) Twisted Puddy Cats- Spread out between Plague, Balkans, Bazooka, and Bad With Names. Its pretty much over already. SINK.

8) Legion of Hades-
Looks like this group is struggling vs the Lion Game of Thrones Group. SINK.

9) Free Hugs-
Points for sticking around. Lost Patchus which is a huge hit but also lost Lady Godiva which almost offsets the loss and saves them thousands of biremes in LTS. FLOAT.

10) ILLYRIANS-
Dead in the water. SINK.

11) Silly Rabbits- SINK.

12) MARVEL- SINK.

Another week, another top 12 refresh I guess - This time no fancy text or bold letters. You can all read so just sit back and enjoy it.

1. Plague
Not much as changed here in my eyes. Great position for the state of the world but probably public enemy #2. Rumours of them having agreements with other alliances spread like wildfire which eliminates the concern I have for them not keeping up with numbers/activity. Seems like pig can carry randals ego so far. It's not an easy task so I congratulate him.

Prediction: Swim.

2. BwN(name/number) No further statements since last post.

Prediction: No comment due to bias.

3. Balkan boyz/Balkan Boyz*
Already covered this in my last post and don't feel like much of anything has changed. Interesting roster, a little concerned with a few obvious weaknesses, but nothing they can't recover from.

Prediction: Swim.

4. Bazooka Bunnies
Still a dark horse, honestly have no serious comments on them yet. I will say looking at their roster and seeing multiple inactives this early really makes my stomach sink - I don't think they can survive piglague (you like my name for plague? I think it fits, let me know :) ) but maybe they can run the other way and survive? only way I see them living down the road is to merge with another MRA. WW they stand no chance.

Prediction: Swim for now but for how long? Who knows.

5. Hakuna matata

One of the two last standing MRA's. Can't say I didn't see this one coming from a mile away. It all started falling apart once BP ended and everyone put pressure of them. RIP vengeance and wicked clowns. you won't really be remembered or anything, but may you rest in peace with the rest of the MRA's here to amuse us and send unescorted boats to our sieges. Last note is I don't see these guys surviving, But I do see them being recruited by 9.

Prediction: Power in numbers? Doubt, float for a few weeks until recruited/eaten by 9.

6. Double trouble
Whiplady alliance? WELL THAT SURE IS INTERESTING. My concern is if whiplady can keep her cap locks off long enough for her to communicate with her alliance. These guys are mostly known for spamming/being weird. No sugar coating it. I don't think they'll last but I know whiplady jumps alliances the second anything gets heated, so for the fun of it I'll claim the same as above - Recruited by 9 to survive.

Prediction: SAME AS above, BUT WITH WHIPLADY it's always HARD TO JUDGE. Float until RECRUITED by MRA

8. Fire and blood
New face in top 12 yay! These guys however, won't be staying for long. Let's see how long they can be carried. I assume they are in contact/allied with the MRA's because their roster is about as weak as them.

Prediction: Sink.

9. Twisted Puddy Cats
Still love the name, no further comment from last time really. What I will say is that these guys are probably going to stick around due to sheer numbers. The last hope for MRA?? they could start a building business I think, big profits I've heard.

Prediction: Sink.

10. Ocean veterans.
The name suggests they are old, which may be the case when you look at where they are situated. Someone took the old mans glasses and he got lost. Looks like they are finding their way home thanks to the help of flaming dragons. let's hope they don't trip and fall on their way home though. That'd be a bit tragic.

Prediction: Sink.

11. Legion of hades
See my last post, nothing has changed. Dark horse for sure and still waiting to see what happens.

Prediction: Float because they're in a weird direction from.. everybody? will revisit this in another month and make a real comment.

12. Marvel
DC TV shows are better. Don't @ me.

Prediction: Sink

I put no effort in to this compared to the last one, But it's just a catch up of last week's and the forums are bull of less-than-optimal posts when it comes to effort anyway so you get what you are given <3

Still the underdogs here, I like it.

@Xuegou - Dark Horse is an appropriate analogy.

One thing though, we are not an MRA..
My apologies, I haven't seen you, or anybody on the roster in any worlds before now (As mentioned in my first top 12 post though, I don't play every world. The only world I've actually played semi seriously/seriously is LATO, Helio and maybe taras (But i forget about that world completely lol) I started playing in THETA under a different IGN.

I went off top 12 from score including academies. If I had combined academy + main alliance technically you would be top 12, yes. But I generally go off leaderboards.

Demon slayer is absolutely amazing. Keen for the train arc.

We kicked the player because he is dead weight, he joined our alliance a few days back without saying a word, nor partaking in any alliance activities and then expects help when attacked - he was using us as a security belt, nothing to do with stats :)

You are right though - it has been good fun, more to come no doubt!
