I just randomly joined the world and decided to accept an invite from the first alliance that doesn't simply send me an invite and tries harder then "join plz" . Turned out it was Warriors of Greece and I must say i don't regret the decision - the alliance is doing well for such an inexperienced group.2. Warriors of Greece - Seem to be growing and keeping the numbers up, moving up in fighter points.
I must say I am quite proud of my method of selecting an alliance.
About the whole situation above - while I do not mod US17 I am a forum mod and let me give you a tip:
If you are running out of space in your post because you are posting large evaluations or you aim to provide some service to the community that you think warrants 2 or more posts then go ahead and PM whoever is moderating your forum. It's up to the mod to allow you more posts but do NOT just go ahead and break the rules by double posting and expect us to turn a blind eye.
We are here to help you create a community and a friendly mail can work wonders. That said, lets get the thread back on topic - if anyone has some other questions feel free to PM a forum mod.
About the Top 5:
My alliance has just hit another Top 12 alliance (The Sea Raiders ) quite hard and our first skirmish while brief turned out to be quite successful. We have not made as many enemies as The Rebellion so not unrealistic that we'll catch them soon.
Legions of Sparta and Hell Hounds didn't seem to be in any larger wars till now, with Hell Hounds being behind in fighter rankings - not a good sign really, being too peaceful might stall their growth in the long term.
