You guys know what to do. I am requesting that no replies be made until the world actually opens in a week. Thank you.
I will be releasing a full top 12 in my paper tonight.STOOGIE's TOP 4 SINK OR SWIM POWER RANKINGS
Hello, and welcome to the first "Power Rankings of Delos"! Unfortunately, this is not a newspaper, but it still contains plentiful of content. I'll make these on a regular basis and I'll post these in the Sink or Swim Thread. This doesn't mean others can not make sink or swims, though. I'm just posting what I know what my opinions on the alliances. So sit back and enjoy and we'll go off with a bang!
Number of Players: 90
ABP Rank: 1
Thoughts on this alliance:SWIM~ This alliance, which is led by The Smilodon Fatalis is currently ranked 1 in all of the categories, including BP and what nots. According to Valkaneth's Oracle, it is the alliance that uses the most gold so far. I understand that Beginning Protection is still going and most of the BP received are from the island quests on the island map, but it is a good indication of activity and a head start to get city slots. As you can in the alliance map above, the large majority of the cities are located in in O44, although there are some straggling cities in O45, O54, and even 55. This alliance has a promising future unless the circumstances changes.
ELITE OF HEAVENS
Number of Players: 91
Thoughts on this alliance:SINK~This alliance, who is led by bdf1987 is currently ranked number 2 in all the categories. Although, the numbers in the rankings shows the cohesiveness and activity in the alliance, the map above shows quite a different story. ELITE of Heavens is currently spread out in all 4 oceans and that is not a good sign of success. This alliance will be seen as food for other people or the better players in the alliance will seek stronger alliances.
Thoughts on this alliance:SWIM~This alliance, who is led by ExpertoGreeko aka ExpertGreek, is consistently in the 3rd place, even though their stats aren't as high as the alliances above. According to the map, the alliance is mainly located in the northeastern ocean, O54, but has 3-4 cities in neighboring ocean O44. This is a pretty well knit alliance that will go far into the future.
Thoughts on this alliance:FLOAT~This alliance, led by Kallypso aka Dellany, has a pretty decent ABP(Although, I'm constantly reminded we are all in this very long BP.) This alliance seems to be mostly in one ocean but is not as "tight knit" as Cereal Killers and Rising Sons. I'm sure you will prove me wrong and I'll have to reassess this alliance and what nots.
