I guess I will start lol

1. Relentless- Number 1 on points. Number 1 on ABP and DBP coming out of Beginners Protection with a bang. A lot of familiar faces over there and experience. Swim

2. Spartan Elite- Have a good core going, seems they will take 55 without anyone to stop them. A lot of experience over here also. Swim

3. Puppymonkeybaby- My alliance will not say anything

4. Anonymous- Good core in 45, Recognize one or two players but no more than that. Seems they will fight it out in 45 with Tomorrows Lunch Special. Float

5. RELENTLESS KNIGHTS- They are the sister alliance to Relentless nothing to say about them that I haven't already said above. Since they are the smaller sister alliance they will most likley split apart later on or merge into one alliance Therefore, Swim then Sink

6. Kittens of Doom- In 54 with Relentless, I do not know a single player over there and they seem to be outnumbers by Relentless. Sink

7. The Black Death- In 44 with Puppymonkeybaby, seem to be some experience here, It will be interesting. Float

8. Tomorrows Lunch Special- Good core and Great Leader. More than likely will fight Anoymous for 45 and win. Swim

9. Templar Knights- I recognize a few names over there. Spread out and sandwiched on the border of 54/55 and will get taken out soon. Sink

10. Caliber- Do not know of any of them, Seem to be sandwiched between Puppymonkeybaby and The Black Death. Do have some players that use a lot of gold but do not think they will last. Sink

I agree with most of this. I have to disagree with Caliber, though. 1 their average points, and 2 I remember them killing it in Delos and they were in the same situation. They only finally sank there when RL look their top players

Meh Caliber from doesn't ring any bells. They must not have killed it to hard in Delos.

You must have a poor memory then... ;)

Not saying they killed it but they were around for a good while, at least 4-5 months.

Caliber is an excellent alliance and should be paid attention to. Very good players, a fair number of them russians. Were a big pain in Delos until until their number one player finally ghosted.

only alliances that will be major plays in the world :

1.) Relentless - and i only give them a swim because leathalsniper generally has a good judgement of alliance quality. IDK the associations to relentless knights but dropm either way.

2.) Caliber - good location, Few decent size muscles i recognize.

3.) Tomorrows lunch special - Hate the name >__> does it mean you are on the menu? either way decent group of people here solid location good bp and easy backing.

4.) Bobbys BBQ - My alliance. Lets just say our V to P ratio is amazing.

5.) Golden Fluff - Normally i would just ask why with the name
but i know some of the names here, few top tier players who could ( if they play serious ) make a difference in this world.

6.) Die Laughing - Sack up and pay attention, This is a great group of GAMERS. Though a few be revolt they dedicate good time to the details. odds on favorite, i think they will plow through most and recruit what they want to become a top alliance here.

The rest will feed the top either by joining or getting grilled to perfection and eaten.
 
well that post was a little short sighted lol. While i agree that those names mentioned are worth mentioning, as we see with all worlds, atleast half of these alliances may not even in exist in a few months. Late joiners may even come in to wreck the place up, seen that before with a heavy gold alliance.

Interesting to see how this world turns out anyway once everyone is settled in

short sweet and nasty, i expect a lot of " not my alliance! were actually greattttttt..." = people just dont wanna admit the crew they with sucks the sack.

Edit: the alliances i named are ones i think will have impact here, weather they merge up, pact up or sack up.
 
Well we cant forget about everyones favorite small alliance, Donnas Care Bears. Sure they only started 1 week ago, but they are surely contenders once WW starts. A mighty number of 9 players, should be more than enough to compete with the resource game? That, and come on, who doesn't love a Care Bear

Just going to casually copy and paste the one I made in the other thread;

1. Tomorrow's Lunch Special

Their core ocean is O45 and, quite frankly, they dominate the very top right corner towards the very center of the core. They do appear to have an academy of sorts, although the difference in the way the two alliance profiles are laid out does bring up questions which I shall leave for another topic. They are currently third in ABP (40k behind second) and fifth in DBP although, if I had to guess, I'd say the majority of that DBP was taken by those who are sprawled across the other oceans in less favourable positions, which is a concern in itself. Why have members that far out? Overall I can see this alliance swimming for a while yet due to their solid core, but they're likely to lose those cities that are deep in the other oceans unless they start to fill in the gaps. Basically, be more aggressive.

Verdict - Swim
Prediction - #1

2. Relentless


Much like TLS, Relentless have a solid core but in O54. Also like TLS, they appear to have an academy (Relentless Knights - not doing caps cos screw caps) and, just to continue the comparisons, they also have cities spread in other oceans although they do have the benefit of the majority of those cities at least being close to their core. Top of ABP, they've clearly been busy since Beginners Protection ended and, judging by their DBP, they've also been having to weather a few storms. I'd wager them and TLS have probably been battering each other senseless, or certainly will be if they aren't already. They have a lower average than TLS and considerably less cities. Either they've not been successful in taking whatever cities they're targetting, or they're being hit from multiple sides which is hindering their success. Or both. Either way they're holding strong at the moment so only time will tell the full story about what's happening with them.

Verdict - Float
Prediction - #3

3. Caliber


I like these guys a lot. A small, close-knit group with their core in O44, highest average on the server so far, second on ABP despite having nearly half the members of other alliances around them, and second on DBP (but still 10k behind Relentless in #1), these guys look to be the one "elite" alliance that always pops up in every world. There's not much more to say here. Clearly they're in some kind of a war with someone (possibly cleaning out TLS and Relentless from their ocean as well?) these guys won't be falling anytime soon unless the dreaded boredom or inactivity hits. Expect them to climb the rankings as the weeks go on.

Verdict - Swim
Prediction - #2

4. Spartan Elite

First of all, worst name an alliance could possibly have in this game. With that out of the way, let's dig in.

They have a slightly lower average than relentless with a few more members. Their core is basically along the O54/55 border but with some random cities dotted around for whatever reason. I'd actually say their core is pretty solid, although they will be facing stiff competition from Relentless and Night Warriors. I'm not sure if they also have an academy under the name Spartan Dominion, or whether that's just another player who has doomed themselves with the word 'Spartan' in their name. They're sat 4th in ABP and 6th in DBP, so basically they're lagging behind the top 3 on all counts. Nonetheless their core does give them longevity unless one of the top 3 decides they look tasty and start munching. I just don't feel they could stand up to the larger alliances as a whole at the moment, but I'm open to being proven wrong.

Verdict - Float
Prediction - Somewhere between #4 and #7

5. Puppymonkeybaby

Loving the name guys, it's original and stands out!

Third in DBP and 6th in ABP, someone has been battering these guys as much as they've been trying to batter their opposition, and I'm going to bet it's Caliber as the two are pretty much sat on one another. They have a very low average compared to those above them, which isn't too surprising when they're stuck between Caliber and TLS. As much as I love their name and would love to see them stick around, I just can't see them surviving a constant assault from the alliances around them. Such a pity.

Verdict - Float for a bit, then sink. Sorry guys.
Prediction - I expect these guys to drop in the near future so I'll say around #7, maybe lower depending on how hungry Caliber and TLS start to get.

6. Relentless Knights

I refuse to use caps.

These guys are only surviving because they are the academy of Relentless. Their ABP looks good, that much needs to be said. But their average is very low and, as stated before, if they weren't an academy then they'd have been eaten by Relentless by now.

On the bright side, at least they're an academy that actually shares an ocean with their main alliance. It's surprising how rare that is.

Verdict - Float. The only way they'll go up is if someone drops below them. They won't be climbing from their own power alone anytime soon.
Prediction - #6, possibly move up to #5 if Pmb die out.

7. Spartan Dominion

They share O54 with Relentless, have poor ABP and quite low DBP. Oh, and an abysmal average. As with Relentless Knights (screw caps), this dominion is likely only alive courtesy of Spartan Elite and the fact Relentless are probably busy smacking other alliances. Nothing much else to say here.

Verdict - Float.
Prediction - #6 should Pmb sink as I predicted. Otherwise, they'll stay around here.

8. Night Warriors

With abysmal average, very poor ABP but with very low DBP, Night Warriors are surviving and little else. I don't know what's up with O55 in this world but they're proving to be a little bit of a disappointment over there. On the flipside, if one alliance can step up and take charge, they'll grow and become a formidable force in the blink of an eye. Right now Night Warriors are in the mix, but their current stats leave a lot to be desired.

Verdict - Float.
Prediction - #10

9. Tomorrows Lunch Special.

Another academy but hey, they have less members than the other academies. Sadly though their average is lacking a little. Their ABP is reasonable and they're ahead of Night Warriors, so that's something to cheer about. Truth be told I can see them overtaking Night Warriors if they keep up the pace and follow in the footsteps of their main alliance. Much like Relentless Knights (screw caps) though, they're surviving only because they are TLS' academy and nothing more.

Verdict - Float
Prediction - #9

10. Bobby's BBQ

Another small alliance, again in O45 (a good ocean this server) with just 28 members, these guys are clearly doing something right as they're still alive. Their ABP outweighs their DBP quite a way at the moment, although neither are anything special at this point. If they can hold tight and build a stronger hold in their ocean then I can see them being difficult to break. Keep up the aggression guys.

Verdict - Swim
Prediction - #8

1. Tomorrow's Lunch Special
You know what Tommorrow's Lunch Special is? Half baked Tator tots, still frozen in the middle. This alliance is about as hot as a lunch lady. Terrible name. Alliance and ugly sister is filled with terrible players. Their 1 good player is going to burn out in a few weeks and they will start their downward spiral.

Sink

2. Relentless

Another mega alliance with another mega ugly sister filled with meh players. The advantage I see here is a few players who don't know when to quit, which you should. Quit. Grep is not your game.

Float - only because they don't know how bad they are and they will stick around like a bad penny. Hold it together with duct tape.

3. Caliber

I like the name. I like the bear. Only 56 players. No dumb explanation that the are "selective" in who they invite and then fill their roaster with a bunch of scrubs (damn you UMad. Now I'm using that word).

Swim

4. Spartan Elite

Elite? Ugh.
Sink

5. Puppymonkeybaby
This was the worst commercial ever.
Sink

6. R3LENTLESS
UGLY S1ST3R.
<sarcasm>But I love the 3 as an "e" and the caps. LOVE! Swim </sarcasm>

7. Spartan Dominion
Another ugly sister. Seriously, why do you guys need so many people. Don't get it.

Sink

8. Tomorrow's Lunch Special.
This lunch lady has a huge hairy mole.
Sink

9. Night Warriors
This is getting boring.
Sink

10. Bobby's BBQ
Love these guys. A Jake and Elw0od sandwich? That's what I call a lunch special.

Swim
