Now that we're about 36 hours before the end of BP, anyone feel like creating a top 12 (or top 10, 8, or whatever feels right)
You want an update on the top 8, here it is.
Updated Top 8 (Totally Accurate and Unbiased)
#1 - Epic Failures & Epic Losers - With 14 of the top 20 players and apparently bottomless wallets or their dads card number, this is hard to beat. They got a massive head start and have both the rank 1 and rank 2 spots as alliances. They are positioned in 044 and 055 mainly. As far as I can tell everyone around them is pretty much a giant whoopee cushion waiting to get sat on. Well maybe not quite all of them, we will see.
#2 - Project Samos - The highest average point alliance beating out the rank 1 by a solid 100 points. There is a tiny caviotte however, its got a recruitment problem. They don't seem to be very good at finding members as they are maxing out at 1 right now. Maybe they just need a little time. SWIM
#3 - Alien Extraction - Formerly known as Doom Fear, they are sitting the the 3rd rank with 3 of the top 20 rank players. They got a few wallets and some notable players on their side as well as some not so notable players. Not too sure what their plan is and their positioning will be awful if they don't make some serious moves. They will be surrounded by pretty solid alliances and will have a tough time growing unless something interesting happens. Float
#4 - Charlie & Alpha - While most of the top rank alliances are forming their core in the starting oceans, this team has a much different idea of how to play the game. They are not the highest on the leader boards, but I figured I'd rank them pretty high because of their rapid execution of their unique strategy. They are moving way out in the boonies in 033 and have covered several islands in no time at all. Their growth is ramping up pretty rapidly and I wouldn't be surprised if they ended up in the most favorable position when the Wonders come out of the closet.
#5 - Little Frogs - This alliance is always changing their name and for good reason, I'd probably change my name too if I looked like them. Aside from their next level strategy of constantly changing their name, they seem to be in a decent position as long as the next contender on this list does what every MRA eventually does. Frogs are hanging out in 054 smack in the middle of the largest MRA on this world so far.
#6 - Flying Falcons & Flying Falcons II & Flying Falcons III & Flying Falcons IV etc - Now here is the biggest and most advanced strategy team ever. Nobody has ever come up with a strategy so grand as these guys. They plan to win the world through diplomacy and at the rate they are going this world will be a turkey shoot... In all seriousness, this team has a lot of high potential players. If they use their MRA to feed cities to their flagship players then eventually they will be a pretty potent contender. Alternatively their good players will leave and join the nearby Frogs. Lots of things can happen to change this ocean. For now they will FLOAT
#7 - The Silent Coming - These guys have climbed a bit since the start of the world and are now sitting in the 6th rank with very good positioning south of both of the top 2 teams with plenty of room to grow without having to wrestle with the biggest guys. I will make a pretty bold guess and say that they will be climbing the ranks pretty steadily. SWIM
#8 - Endurance - Similar to Charlie & Alpha, this team is moving away from the main oceans pretty early, though not as far. They have some notable names among their roster that tell me this team has some potential to climb the ranks. They are located south west 045 and will grow uncontested for a while. SWIM
Fine Print - Please do not eat all the donuts and leave some for me. I kinda like donuts and wouldn't mind having them more often. If you like donuts the please leave a comment below with your favorite donut, I'd like to give it a try if I haven't already. Anyway you all should also try pepperoni donuts cause they are completely based and are yummy. BTW- Muck vs Yuck is real guys and I hope they win cause if they don't then it will be so funny that I'll be laughing so hard that it will make it hard to keep the donuts down. So keep on guys and may the best noob win.
