Many early discussions made an attempt to guess who would win the World.
The facts will show that it was The Picnic Bunnies, who take away the accolade of Victors of the World.
We have been helped along the way by our allies Vikings Reborn, Offensive language & Northern Lights.
Ultimately games are won and lost on the trust we place in others, and these alliances stuck by there word.
This World will be remembered by the early offensive domination of the Bunnies sweeping aside all that faced us.
Happily reflected in our domination of the BP stats
The downside is i believe we were universally hated
As they game grew old many players thoughts turned to the boring bit of the game in forming the wonders.
The diplomacy and infighting started as in every world.
Previous allies became enemies when egos and personalities took over.
But through all this new friendships were formed. The Vikings who in the early days were food for the Bunnies stood by their word to put those days behind them and work with us.
And for that i would like to personally thank Bryle the Great.
To many forget this is a game, and those who were once enemies may be your allies in the next world.
The age of Wonders started, and although the Bunnies and their allies were outnumbered by those against them. We had those in our ranks with the skill and dedication to do the numbers.
Far to many forget this is a maths based game. MissInnocence and others simply sat on skype number crunching and adjusting, to guarantee the bunnies would complete 4 of the wonders first.
And although close at times it became clear that we simply had the better activity levels, even if we were outnumbered in members.
Our allies came good jumping in and out for the alliance to send resources.
We watched other alliances do similar.
TBC 1,2 & 3 made themselves known in their dedication to try and outbuild us. And although they were never ever in our ocean to be a foe. It became apparent that we would have to go to war at some stage.
The red dots started founding in our areas, in anticipation of having to break our wonders.
Our strategy was quite simple, we felt we were the best and most active. So no one would ever break our wonders.
As always Grepo throws up the issues of the game. and the treachery that follows. Greg and zach decided that they didnt have the fight in them to see out the world. And did a deal with TBC to break some of our wonders in the hope that the Bunnies would fold and others could go on to complete all 7.
They were wrong, it simply united us to hold what remained knowing only the Bunnies would leave with an accolade from this world.
The boring end game dragged on, and all alliances lost players to bordem and RL. Stats indicated the Bunnies were suffering a little more than others in this respect.
But we knew we had the core strenght to hold out regardless.
ArmyOfShadowhunters made the effort to push into our remaining wonder areas.
The red dots grew in numbers and size around our core.
Ultimately like so many worlds before, weakness was down to inactivity by players.
And all alliances found this in each other.
Players names became more obvious threats. Honourable mentions to Strikin, Jheader and Karlos
for pressurising us in our core.
Being continual pains
Their dedication in making attempts to break our wonders was shown in both their own Bp stats (big respect for karlos for being the clear No1 offence player)
And the Bunnies stats on defence as a consequence
But ultimately all was in vain for our enemies. We managed to hold onto a single wonder at the end to make sure no deals could be done by others to gift a Master of The World award to them.
And i feel the Bunnies will leave the world with the stats showing how hard those that made it to the end, as well as those that had to leave along the way worked to help us dominate Troy.
I think this stat sums up the effort Bunnies put in throughout the duration of this world. Outscoring the next 3 highest ranked Alliances combined on overall BP.
All 3 of these alliances were united in trying to beat the Bunnies.
Certain players deserve their rankings in BP and points.
Others simmed to the end. Not my style, but admittedly everyone's style can have a value in a game as diverse as this.
We all have our perspective on how the game should and shouldn't be played, and some on both sides pushed the boundaries of what can be considered fair game play.
But im pleased to have been a bunny, and would happily play with my team again.
Id also like to thank our many enemies who made this game the addiction it is. Plenty of those i would happily play other worlds with as allies.
So my best wishes to all, and for those that are leaving the world of grepolis enjoy RL
