lol...here's your top 12...It's my first time doing one, but given how many multi-alliances someone should work on a top 20
1)Infamous---Swim, certainly a vast wealth of knowledge and experience will keep these guys swimming til the end
2, 8, 10) Antimatter---Float, but ultimately sink. Vastly outnumbered against the Vortex clan and taking losses...A few gains to be had, but most are turtling up for the winter
3,4,5,9,11,25,39) Vortex (that is correct...7 vortex alliances)---Swim for a little while and then a heavy Sink. I think we all know what happens to organization and leadership when so many flags are put under 1 alliance, with so many leaders/founders and points of view. They will do some serious damage but ultimately be disbanded when WW comes about.
6) The Wheel---Swim. Don't really know a lot about these guys, except they've been here a LONG time, and don't appear to be losing much ground.
7) Dire Wolves---Float. All about diplomatic ways and trying to maintain their alliance...I see these guys being the next flag for Matter, or Vortex...given the way of our world.
12) Dynasty Warriors---Float. This is my alliance and am very proud. We started late on the server and immediately battled the 'Genesis' clan. Surviving that, we bunkered in and expanded our alliance, and oceans controlled. We have a nice hold up in O73 and O74 to provide help on our changing front lines. (we are also Noxious Immortals and Lazy Vegans)
