Top 12

I think its time for a new top 12...

1. Mortis - We are sending out some applications for a decent enemy... TRV has been sad at best... At last glance the stats are - 78-2. Looks likes its going to be Silent striker and Crash 2.0s time to fall now :)

2. Ghost Squad - They are continuing their war with ADR - So far stats in that war are 16-0... Adr isnt looking all that well at the moment.

3. Musketeers - They are currently at war with The Saxons.. 0-18 in the saxons favor doesnt look great, but they seem to be righting the ship. That should be a very good war :)

4. The Red Virus - The Mortis post should say it all. Maybe I am too blunt, but if an agreement is made not to take cities below a certain line, wouldnt recruiting a whole alliance below that line violate that agreement? This is where TRV finds itself in trouble now...

5. ADR - Once thought to be fairly formidable, havent shown much yet in the GS war. Dojoe seems quiet after losing a few cities personally to them.

6. Saxons - Musketeers seems to be righting the ship a little, but The Saxons look like the real deal. They built a core, did some smart dipolmatic moves and are continuing to grow. Lets hope leadership there is smart and continues to stay away from allies like ALALA, who will only get them involved in wars they probably should stay out of for now.

7. ALALA - Silent and Crash, oops... I mean gunslinger since his first name was umm, yea removed from the server. They want a piece of mortis. We want a piece of them. Deja Vu anyone? Maybe crash will post on here again. But lets just say A non cs capable Jaymusses isnt gonna be their savior.

8. Silence - Oh Cyrus... Now there is no druid with him, so the en split will be interesting to watch. At least silence is his own name, so right off the bat he is off to a better start. Still too much recruiting, not building a core, running to the rim dont bode well. Hey there is nowhere but up though.

9. Angels of Death - Mortis got a lot of airtime on these forums recently because of one bad cs attack... If only I had posted all the wateries they sent my way personally... Angels of Death might be a decent alliance, but boy oh boy those wateries... (Mortis does play defense also)

10. One Musketeers - Academy of Musketeers - 1-9 vs Saxons doesnt bode all that well... Will they right the ship also.

11. Olympia - Might be a future contender. Good Pts per average, not a mra, and growing untouched now. So far smart choices are helping them out. Will it continue?

12. Spartans of Darkness - Wanting in on the Mortis War isnt their brightest move. Small on the fringe though. Time will only tell. I can honestly say they cant have worse leadership then TRV or Silence...

Honorable Mentions - Redwood Empire - My gut feeling on them is they will be the fight of the server... Redwood vs Mortis Coming to your server in a few months... August - Sept... We will see if my prediction holds true..

Lots of server left and it will be interesting...

A few things about my lost towns(2). I was away on work that weekend and was only able to be on phone. So communication and such weren't nearly to par. Also, we had several of our top guys and more defensive guys on VM/away that weekend. So losing those towns doesn't say much for anyone, just kinda happened.

I will say, however, that the towns that we have lost to GS(not talking about the inactives they took from us; that was most of the war so far by the way) that we have had support land before the last attack but they are throwing us off with fake CS' attempts. Good play on their part but we just haven't worked it down to a science :p

Also I don't know what you mean by me being quiet, not too much to comment on.. :p

LOL Guess its good you didnt fight us yet... :) I guess its better not to talk rather then make excuses when you are losing :) Makes sense to me.

Honestly dude can we not do this whole thing? I just explained what happened.

I'm listening to rebelution trying to be happy and all that but don't start this.

I feel that flip's post was pretty fair. Maybe somebody's on edge because they know they're making excuses?

It mostly was; but it was also bad. I don't want to deal with it right now. And yeah, I know I made excuses but they weren't made up or anything. Bug off, maybe?

Maybe learn how to build up a wall... All I see is you crying to your alliance while not even working to get yourself built up. I miss the fighters from the old school grepolis... Where people actually tried to get their walls rebuilt instead of letting mantis eat all the dlu. Sadly defense is a lost art in this game...

but if anyone sits and builds dlu all day they are called a simmer where is your logic coming from

As an alliance, we play very good defense. Personally I like to play defense. I def would be rebuilding my wall if there was 4k dlu in the city and a manti nuke inbound...

ah so his wall was at level 0 and would have just been a few minutes for the first few levels yeah that is kinda sad

I just started in Zakros few weeks ago (so not any kind of player in this world yet), but I believe mflip234 is talking about rebuilding much more than the first few levels.

Any player with a moderately developed infrastructure should be able to ship all the res he needs to rebuild the whole thing (or damn near). And just a little gold will go a long way to power-lvling that wall just in time to slay some dragons ;) why not go for the opportunity to compound the defensive BP you will get? Dragons can take a good minute to rebuild, too, so you really hurt the enemy.

My 2 cents, anyway.

Might want to watch out for Maruaders of Neb, who have just joined the fight about a month ago :D
Empress Meli isnt impressive. Your alliances total abp would be ranked 61st among out attackers... We will see how well mac bolan whips them into shape. Dont worry, I havent forgotten about TLB from naxos. :) That 64/65/74/75 area is going to be interesting.

if youre under attack, building dlu and walls is the most logical thing to do. majority of your best players build balanced but have higher abps because they know how and when to use all of their units, not just how to attack and waste o units.

I'm new to the server, so I'll try to base my review off stats only so, hopefully that keeps me unbiased. I've also included a +/- rating based on conquests of cities belonging to the other top 12 alliances including academies/pacts. The reason being, a city given away still results in a loss of power and points. This should display the true growth of an alliance in comparison to the other top 12 alliances. (if you don't like that I did it this way, then make your own top 12!)
