BCC has such a huge amount of BP from starting a month late and with less than 30 players. Vig is in a golden spot with half of the remaining small alliances in the world right next to them Showtime/Phoenix Rising/Pandemic and a couple others. I would include BCC but they are the only guys holding up well against Vig. Question is Showtime at war with Vig? Thanks for the comment about us, out here in 66. TSF even though we are at war they have 400k more ABP than the Mamluks and Mamluks have former The Union and Apocalypse players 2 of the best alliances in worlds I have ever played.
Mamluks- I have played against some of their members in other worlds
BCC- Beating Vig. Vig destroyed Tequila when they were considered a rim alliance, had Binski(now in Collective) and some others who I played against in a different world.
Mercs-Keeping alive and well after losing their Acad and ally Wolf Pack and several members
The Collective-Beat Infection who at several points where considered the best alliance in the game, also this is what happens when you don't finish the job and kill everyone in 45 instead of winning and slowly entering the ocean.
Showtime/TSF tied for 5th- Showtime was kind of the milder version of BCC before they joined LoUG or half-merged if that is possible. Now their back and have high hopes for them. TSF is my enemy but I will admit that Bolderdash can play even though he may be using bots, He still can play, I mean he started in 57 and is 3rd in the world, who does that???? He also on his own have pretty much destroyed our defense at some points by taking out several thousand bir from us over the last couple months. Even though some may say he has so much gold Fort Knox must be his bank account I still have to give him props.
Vigilate- They have control of the most oceans in the world. You have to be pretty good at the game and have tremendous luck to control 5+ oceans and be 5th in ABP.
