Ok, So lets get a new Sink or Swim thread going...

1. Havoc - they seem solid - Might be an alliance that lasts for a bit. Float

2. Ascension - I have to say, I dont know how we survived this long. These PP ops are downright brutal. Please take it easy on us. Thank god Total Biscuits didnt attack me, I might have had to hit restart. Obviously we are sinking fast :)thisisgrepolis:eek:

3. Dragon slayers - With havoc and ds going at it, both are gonna be growing from the bp. Should be fun. Float

4. Sea Wolves - Opping away :) What else is new. Battle tested and feared. Swim.

5. Peaceful Pioneers - Recruiting to keep their numbers up. Excuses and bs. Yea, they are gonna absolutely swim and conquer this server. The revolving door that is their membership makes them truly great. :) Well done beast. Sink...

6. The plague - Every hear of modern day medicine. :) Sink

7. Evisceration - another solid alliance - Swim

8. Ghosts of us army - The ghost portion of their name is true. sink

9. Reboot Naxis - they will swim for now

10. The faction - Who are they? Sink

11. Honey Badgers - One of the few alliances to be feared on this server. They will be around a long time

12. Domination Achieved - One of the top 3-4 alliances on this server. They will be swimming. :)

PP is opping you? News to me, until today we had tried one conquest against Sea Wolves, and that went through. You've taken 4 cities from us, 3 uncontested due to players leaving the world and you guys beating us there, which I will say is still a good take (I will also say the one we supported was done really well), and we've taken 1 from SW, not much of a war so far, both alliances are more concerned about themselves then each other from my point of view.

We don't recruit to keep our numbers up, we recruit to grab good players. Beast isn't the one recruiting them, I am, so if you want to have that argument, bring it. I recruited PROIXOSIS-1, xX Mr MayheM Xx, Tyrants, Xerxes2435 and bruno. So far, I'm rather pleased with my recruits.



Good thread for stirring crap up though lol

Dragon Slayers are benefiting from having so many pacts. We won't know how good they are till they cut the pacts down from the 9 they currently have. It is only a matter of time before conflicts of interest occur and alliances that pacted with them out of necessity no longer feel a need.

Honey Badgers should be much higher on the list.

I went down the list of alliances in pt order. HB is a very good alliance. Which is why i posted they were a solid alliance. One of the better ones on the server.

I will admit my initial predictions on ascension where wrong but I still do no see them as an alliance that will sit in for the long haul.


(Since mflip has taken time out of his very busy day to create on of these I feel obligated to make one aswell :p )

I agree on ur opinion of hb :). But u are wrong about faction. They may have a tendency to turtle and sim or they could end up being aggressive. Either way tho they will be a ww contestant if the players stick around. They specifically started late to have a tight initial core for ww prep day one haha, some of them are for sure playing under different names but trinity talon is a solid player and that whole group will probably be good defenders. In phi(hb's most recent world) their core 20 or so players merged into hb when we needed friends in a very drama filled world. Partially because of location and partly because we never meshed 100% they split at the end to reorganize their own group for this world. but they aren't noobs and from the looks of it they don't have any immediate competition. I don't have anything bad to say about them however other leaders or members in hb probably would haha.
I think reboot has too many simmers( we have snagged a few of their cities pretty easily) however when they are actively defending they have some fairly impressive stacks and snipe attempts and thwarted us plenty of times. No real retaliation attacks yet. Either they have a turtle style of play which can be needed when u play with no pacts or they are saving up offense to make a big stab, we will see. 6-7-8-12 I honestly know nothing about and so far havnt seen anything noobish enough from any other group that would be worthy of mention. Every team has a few noobs at this stage

Yay! Havoc went from sinking to floating!
What does "float" mean? I'm guessing in between sink and swim?

I think most of these alliances are strong... However will say the one who started this thread does seem a bit one sided... The ones growing fast and coming to closer to the top are ranked 5-10 in the world... So seems most predictions are based on his own interests....... Not what stats and back ground are saying

Show me the stats that disagree with my thoughts? I knew ghosts had to do something because they were losing far too many cities. Domination will be tough. Hb is good. PP is horrible. Sheppard, if there is one thing I am pretty good at, is a speed 2 revolt world.. :)

Its called scouting... Its called hearing from peers who can play. Honeybadgers can play - I heard they tore things up on phi from some friends there who won the world. Yes I also trust in my team as well. Seems like everyone thinks we are noobs... I mean Kjc cant play obviously, he has no grepo experience... What about Bigben? Skippio, Cb, Atela, Pitviper, Scarlett among others... The best is the seawolves cant play either. According to some people they are "just hear because of the commercial and are very green" LOL That Kyisland character is a total noob. His stats show he has no clue how to get bp. :) What about Aigaios, Imma... According to biscuit, Ascension would be gone in no time. Looks like we are still here :)

I was wrong on my first prediction I will admit but prediction was based on my gut instincts since this is my first U.S server I had no way of knowing how 'experienced' the ascension members where.

"just hear because of the commercial and are very green" I believe I made a similar comment, and It was based on attacks i seen off two Sea Wolves with 3 citys and 4 who launched unescorted attacks at an unaffiliated 4k city, i parked a 1 bire trip and the kid showed me the report, thats why I made the assumption they have a few newbies and like a lot of alliances they dont teach the new recruits the basics, they just work on their targets and instead of teaching all their crew that are still learning, you end up with deadweight or weak links in your membership,

a few people whose fought HB or alongside HB say were a tough group to beat, we can certainly handle the long drawn out wars, and in at least 4 servers weve broken rank 1 powerhouses or stopped them winning WW's, its because we take the time and effort to help even newbie players that WANT to learn the game better become better, and we dont recruit people based on their size :)

I think one team to watch out for over the next few weeks/months is Evisceration, I like what their leadership had to say, and so far their the only alliance to have seen the inside of a HB city, although it was a legitimate refugee claim, so we honoured it and took the loss, but the guy we got was worth having takes character to take a loss on the chin.

what everybody needs to watch is the activity levels dipping when that new server opens lol
