yes it could flip flop many ways... hard to tell.
very true and if inno release a en server that will make a big diferance as wellSpeculation, in general is useless this early. We have a week, folks... a lot can happen in a week. Aside from simply diagnosing an alliance as an MRA - which is completely possible on the first day - we cannot assess their abilities. Even prior merits on other worlds are poor indicators since winning the endgame phase of a world is not as hard (in some ways) as surviving anew. Many factors come into play - such as activity, gold, and personal issues. A player in the endgame phase can survive being moderately active, an entire alliance can. New world, new challenges.
All I know is that they will survive if people are intimidated solely on their points and size.
Yeah, it worked well in Nysa and Iayslos. Bring twice (or more) the amount of maximum member cap. Pact with a couple alliances target a smaller one. Work your way up until a coalition HAS to be formed to defeat you. Yeah, that sure is a winning formula, but by far the lamest in all Grepolis worlds.their is big difference between mra and a permade in which wovle are they are following a tried and tested formular from en servers and as long as the leadership stays strong and they make right diplomatic calls they will win this world at a stroll
