Death brings to you^.^(blog #2)

August 6, 2010 in World 048 News, World News

Welcome fellow world 48 players and forum posters!

The world has changed a lot since I started playing here. We have seen the rise and fall of many tribes. Many players now call w48 a hugging world. But I wish to remain positive and think of this world still in its infant stage. So there is still hope for us, which in turn give hope to every single tribe whether they are at the top or bottom of the food chain^.^
Now before going to our topic I would like to thank both Dark T-Rex and budL for assisting me to bring this edition to the w48 community.

First of all we need to see what our map looks like with the current tribal domination map . This will be followed by maps of top 20 tribes and finally by the fastest top 15 nobling tribes.

Tribal dominance map

Top 20 Tribal Map( August 5th)

Hypothetical wars(Monthly Edition)

Here, I am going to provide some hypothetical wars based on the top 20 Map (August 5th) based on the last month. This topic has no relation with the inner working of any tribes I mention below.

SubV Vs EB-GBs

Side 1:
Tribes: SubV

Side 2:
Tribes: EB-GBs
The two giants share a close boundary in k47 and k48.If these two start a war, it will probably become the first world war we will witness in w48.But for that the two tribes should get hold of powerful allies as back up.AOS who share a territory in between might become a sacrificial lamb if such a war is to take place. But AOS can also gain if such a war takes place if they have a good strategy in diplomacy.

Caps: 0-0

SubV Vs ~PWN~

Side 1:
Tribes: SubV

Side 2:
Tribes: ~PWN~

This is also an interesting war. Both sides share a close boundary in k54.For now the stats are in favor of SubV since they have taken down some isolated players of ~PWN~.

Caps:  46-1

SubV Vs AOS

Side 1:
Tribes: SubV

Side 2:
Tribes: AOS

The stats say that SubV has got a 22 villages lead against AOS’s 1 village in the past month. It will be interesting to see what action AOS will take as pay back or rather it will be interesting to see if SubV wishes to expand to the North.

Caps: 22-1

SubV Vs Brave!

Side 1:
Tribes: SubV

Side 2:
Tribes: Brave!

Here also we have got a war stat where Sub has taken four villages from Brave!. I don’t know whether both sides have started a war or not. Still this will also be another interesting war since Brave! Is also one of the top nobling tribes in w48.

Caps: 4-0

SubV Vs Risen

Side 1:
Tribes: SubV

Side 2:
Tribes: Risen

From the stats it is clear that both sides have engaged in small skirmishes. So far the stats are in favor of SubV. But if Risen makes a counter, things will get tough for SubV since Risen has a reputation for keeping the better half of players from Xie/BLOOD who were though as one of the best tribes in this world before their downfall.

Caps: 10-1

SubV Vs APT

Side 1:
Tribes: SubV

Side 2:

Tribes: APT

The battle ground is k58.The stats are in favor of SubV. But APT is known as a tight bunch. Hence this will be a nice entertainer.

Caps: 4-0

EB-GBs Vs SYN

Side 1:
Tribes: EB-GBs

Side 2:
Tribes: SYN

Here also I have got stats to prove that they could start a future war. SYN has taken down 10 EB-GBs villages whereas EB-GBs only got a single village. This battle will determine who will dominate the Rim at North.

Caps: 1-10

EB-GBs Vs AOS

Side 1:
Tribes: EB-GBs

Side 2:

Tribes: AOS

Here is yet another war we could see if such a thing happens. Reason for this war is pretty simple, expansion. Both tribes need to expand are in the way of each other.

Caps: 0-0

Gang Bang of SOB

SubV Vs SOB

Side 1:
Tribes: SubV

Side 2:
Tribes: SOB

Here SubV has got a four village lead over SOB. Does this mean that SubV want to expand to the North? If so SOB will rapidly diminish from w48 since they will be warring in all fronts.

Caps: 4-0

EB-GBs Vs SOB

Side 1:
Tribes: EB-GBs

Side 2:
Tribes: SOB

Even though EB-GBs have not stated much in the externals, they are currently in war with SOB. The stats are in favor of EB-GBs and SOB will need to make use of some diplomatic skills as well as show some good fight, if they are to beat down this giant.

Caps : 46-10
AOS Vs SOB

Side 1:
Tribes: AOS

Side 2:
Tribes: SOB

AOS having gained footage in k45 as well could expand to SOB territory. The war could turn out well since SOB has got to worry about all of their fronts. Still we can’t rule out the potential of SOB like any other w48 tribes.

Caps: 0-1

SYN Vs SOB

Side 1:
Tribes: SYN

Side 2:
Tribes: SOB

From the stats we could see the capability of SYN in a war situation. SYN has overwhelmed SOB and got a better record in comparison with EB-GBs.

Caps: 50-2

!UN! Vs ~PWN~

Side 1:
Tribes: !UN!

Side 2:
Tribes: ~PWN~

This is one of the few entertaining wars if we are to see any. The current stats show an even battle where ~PWN~ has a one village advantage over !UN!

Caps: 3-4

!UN! Vs Quay

Side 1:
Tribes: !UN!

Side 2:
Tribes: Quay

The stats say that !UN! is beating Quay. But by looking into the map we can see that both sides are evenly matched. Get your pop corn ready if you see a PnP by any one of these sides.

Caps: 18-1

!UN! Vs SYN

Side 1:
Tribes: !UN!

Side 2:
Tribes: SYN

SYN has taken a village from !UN!.  Whether !UN! will retaliate or not, only time(or the leader of the two tribes^.^) can tell.

Caps: 0-1

!UN! Vs MYR5

Side 1:
Tribes: !UN!

Side 2:
Tribes: MYR5

A skirmish between the two tribes has already resulted in the loss of one village.

Caps: 1-0

~PWN~ Vs eQu

Side 1:
Tribes: ~PWN~

Side 2:
Tribes: eQu

Both sides share a close boundary. The stat says about exchange of a single village which might have been due to cross nobling. But this would be a sure entertainer

Caps: 1-1

~PWN~ Vs Risen

Side 1:
Tribes: ~PWN~

Side 2:
Tribes: Risen

The stat shows that Risen have taken two vils from ~PWN~. Things will heat up in the South if such a war breaks out. I can only say one thing. This battle will determine who will  rule South-West.

Caps: 0-2

Brave! Vs APT

Side 1:
Tribes: Brave!

Side 2:
Tribes: APT

From the stats it is clear that both sides are having skirmishes on a much higher level. The battle for k58 is also the battle for survival for APT.

Caps: 17-10

Brave! Vs Risen

Side 1:
Tribes: Brave!

Side 2:
Tribes: Risen

Apart from the exchange of the same vil by both sides, things are relatively quiet over there. But this will be yet another interesting war in w48

With this I conclude this months edition of hypothetical war.

Top 15 Nobling Tribes Map

War News Bulletin

Now we go to our current war stats. Since we have only three PnPs regarding wars, I am only mentioning those three here.

SYN Vs Khaos/KhaosA

Side 1:
Tribes: SYN

Side 2:
Tribes: Khaos/KhaosA

Both sides have taken some caps. SYN has got a lead of 17 villages over Khaos/KhaosA. But looks could be deceiving.

Caps: 39-22

Global Chapter

2) Risen Vs Global

Side 1:
Tribe: Risen

Side 2:
Tribes: Global


Everyone in the forums have been wondering if Global will be able to push Risen from k85. So far the stats are in favor of Global since they are showing an even fight with an advantage of one village over Risen. Global is a pioneer example of how a rim tribe can take down a top 10 if they have got what it takes. Risen on the other hand is having difficulties since they are new to the K. But with Brave! also making their move on Global, Risen will hopefully be able to have some more caps against Global.

Caps: 9-10

3) Brave Vs Global

Side 1:
Tribe: Brave!

Side 2:
Tribes: Global

From the stats it is clear that Brave! is dominating over Global. The battle grounds are k76, k85 and k86. Global which is a small rim tribe are getting handicapped since they have declared war against Risen. Unless some other miracle takes place in favor of Global, they will be eaten up by the South Eastern Rim Giant.

In general the war has come from a rim tribe’s declaration of war against a single top 10 tribe to its survival against two top tribes. Let us all hope that Global will put up a much stronger fight against the two giants and the giants in turn put up an equal fight to show their skills.

Caps: 28-2

Templar Knights of the Earth Saga

1) ~PWN~ Vs ~TKE~

Side 1:
Tribes: ~PWN~
Side 2:
Tribes: ~TKE~

~PWN~ took 8 villages from ~TKE~ and then they remained idle. So in turn this war can be called as a dead war if there is still a war. There is not much to say other than the fact that the war has not affected the growth of both tribes.

Caps: 8-0

2)eQu Vs ~TKE~

Side 1:
Tribes: eQu

Side 2:
Tribes: ~TKE~

This is another active war we have in this world. So far eQu have taken 51 villages against ~TKE~‘s 17. But the most notable fact is that while eQu’s total conquer in 304, ~TKE~ have managed to take down 569 villages. We can make a conclusion that, either this war has stunted the growth of eQu or TKE are not taking this war seriously.

Caps: 51-17

With this I conclude the war stats. Now moving onto the next topic I would like to present the 1st episode of the Dino Times!

Dino Times (#1)

Story of World 48

“In the beginning InnoGames created W48 and the forums. Now the forums where formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of InnoGames was hovering over the waters.

And InnoGames said, “Let there be joining,” and there was joining. God saw that joining was good, and he separated the joining from the darkness.”

Alas! That is the true beginning of our beloved World 48 – What happened thereafter is all history that is to be told by the elders to the young people.

*Dr. T-Rex pulls out two chairs, takes one for his own, and hands the other to his listener*

“Listen up young one! What is to be told now is a long tale. A tale about newbs, noobs, elites, failures, betrayals, hopes, let downs, surprises and friendship.” The dino leaned back thinking while clawing his chin.

Finally he picked up again: “Ah yes, the first day. I remember it as was it just this yesterday’s afternoon, son! The world was all bright and colorful. There were small villages popping up everywhere, kings emerging with them. There was some who gathered in flocks. There was some who lived on their own. Only a handful made it into this metropolis of TW – The W48 Forums!

I recall that, while my good friend and personal Paladin Dr. Alan Grant was being taught, I found The Forums. By mere chance, I was silently talking a stroll in a nearby forest, when I suddenly found myself in the middle of it, rating, chatting and being flamed. Oh yes, The Forums was a hard and cruel place. But it draws on, like kittens to catnip.

I recall a guy I met there. don kenny was his name. A fine guy he was, albeit he was a bit of a talker! He always talked about this and about that. He disappeared just as suddenly as he appeared, and was soon replaced by other talkers.

Other active people at that time was the always present repinski, the spear loving Vonkus and possibly the best flamer that ever visited The Forums: Your our BUFFET! Roasted be the one who crossed his path!

- But we must return to in game affairs again!”

Dr. T-Rex took a sip of water from a cup, cleared his throat and continued in a clear voice:

“Oh yes. Although there was some sort of peace on The Forums, the actual world of 48 was a different story. A tribe that was much esteemed was Clean, in fact a few of those people are still around, but such esteem always causes trouble.

That was also the case for Clean. A nearby tribe called Azura began causing trouble. Before I proceed my story, then I must point out that these where two completely different tribes. Clean was a small tribe with people of higher skill, while Azura had strength in numbers, and while that strength is often utterly spilled – then it wasn’t the case with Azura.

See while Clean and Azura were battling there was a fundamental difference. Clean lost a few very good members to the numbers of Azura, hereby can be mentioned Wesgan and The Uber Luberz – while on the other hand Azura lost uncountable numbers who were replaced by fresh recruits though.

This in the end led to the high profile people of Clean giving up the W48-battle, leaving some spoils of war for Azura. Clean as a united tribe was gone, only to be reformed with a fresh pinch of people: The tribe called Envy. Together they formed what was to be known as Facepalm, or in common tongue: o.O.

Meanwhile on the externals a much beloved character emerged: Our dear forum mod MKC! Some say she is the best mod around, some say she is ceiling cat returned: All we know is that she is called MissKittyCat!

She soon got rid of the worst chatters, and the drunkest drunks, so The Forum was a nice place to be. Flaming was within fair boundaries, competitions where arranged, Technical Difficulties were Rare and the talks of politics was flourishing. It was some place to be. In fact some wanted to move their village to the forums, but that is folly thinking. No man, or woman, shall be living in such a wondrous place except for MKC.

Soon after that happening, a new guy arrived on the block: usey11. He was an esteemed poster, and soon began making his own weekly newspaper.  This was the first issue out of the total of 4 issues.

Around this time one of the most active people on The Forums arrived: Pyker! Do not argue with that guy!

At the time of the noblemen a war broke out between BYON and… well virtually everyone in their area. Noblemen were sparse and as such, the war ended with a 4-0 victory. That was just a glimpse of what this world has had to offer.

But yet! I am only but an old dino, who needs his Galimimus-steak and a good NAP!”

Dr. T-Rex yawned, and snapped his jaws.

“Wake me up in a week’s time will you?

Interview

In this week’s interview I have got the leader of Global, Globalisation who is known in the externals as achilles3302.

dA: Hello there :)

Globalisation: Hey

dA: Okays then let’s start this.

Globalisation: I’m ready.

dA: First of all tell me about yourself.

Globalisation: What would you like to know?

dA: Like what is your position in Global?

Globalisation: I play Globalisation on w48. I’m the founder and duke of Global.

dA: Can you give me a brief intro to your TW career until now?

Globalisation: I first started tw on w20 as lords of loony now upon starting tw my brother in law had been playing 6 month and gave me a guide of what elite tribes look for in players since then I’ve come along way I’ve deleted so many time due to rl issues I can’t remember all my names I’ve done stints of tw on older worlds and newer on newer worlds I get so far and find myself having to leave due to wars on older worlds and or rl issues which I did on w48  as my w20 account achilles3302 on coming back from my rl problems my highest point position is my achilles3302 w20 account I have lead many tribes and been just a plain member many times over I’d like to think of myself as an accomplished player but nowhere near the elite.

dA: How did you come to make such a tribe with this user name? Was it a pre-planned one?

Globalisation: No. Not pre-planned. I took a chance and thought I could handle 3 worlds with 2 different account names. I was majorly wrong. I was on w20 as achilles3302, w8 as terry taylor and started w48 as achilles3302. I got to 20k points and had a pretty big tribe named fenix big as in rim big lol. My job took me away and my friend Globalisation took my villages, then my best players to set up Global. I spoke to my friend 6 weeks ago about him having to leave and me having time to play, he offered me a co player position.

So here I am, been playing 6 weeks. My friend quit for good 5 weeks ago and I’ve taken Global and turned it into a war tribe rather than a turtle tribe.

dA: Do you think Global stands a chance in this church world under you leadership?

Globalisation: I’ve never played a church world before and have come to like playing in a church world. I think Global stand a chance and I believe if we keep getting better and don’t slow down, we could be around for time to come.

Global’s position is very dangerous with the size of our northern neighbors. So in saying we will be around for some time maybe a little big headed. I’ve seen tribes Global’s size disappear overnight but maybe not our caliber.

dA: Can you give me a few insights about your war with Risen?

Globalisation: Basically we contacted them during their war on Aragon and also contacted Aragon at the same tribe. We offered both the same thing, help in taking the other out (devil) lol. Neither tribe took us seriously. So we warred in our own k and surrounding areas awaiting the victor to win which Risen did. We contacted them when they took control of k85 and asked for some sort of diplomatic relations doing the same with Brave! Both tribes been triple our size, we were ignored again by both tribes.

Risen then declared on k85 and started attacking. We took in a few player from Aragon who had taken villages from risen and risen mailed me if I wanted war. They were already attacking so I laughed at them really and gave them a rundown of been ignored and been attacked by them and them attacking us. They asked for proof which I supplied and was ignored again. I took it to my council and let them decide whether or not what we would do. So the end all of it is, it was decided we would declare and here we are.

dA: Now if you were supposed to predict a future war, what do you have in mind?

Globalisation: Well considering I’ve just gained an invite from Brave!, I would say the monster of our north will perhaps jump on us while we are occupied lol. I can see it happening but there again maybe I’m just paranoid

dA: So if you were given a chance to make this world much better and active what would you suggest?

Globalisation: I really don’t know. My advice is sort out the hugging. It killed w20 and other worlds I’ve played. I’d love to see a world completely with no diplomatic standing at all. I’d also like to see a cap on how many tribe you can join say around 10 would keep a world way active and war based like the game is meant to be.

dA: Is there anything else you would like to say to the w48 community?

Globalisation: I’d like to see a lot more warring and a lot less hugging. When I began playing the game, war meant war and only 5-10 players was recruited from the other side make a war a war not a hug cause without a close church it’s easier to lose your nobles. War is what this game was designed for. Too many hugs.

dA: Thank you for spending your time with me mate.

Globalisation: Pleasure m8. I’m not a great player and we aren’t the best tribe but I’d like to see this world do more than hug.

Comic Corner

Now before I am to conclude this week’s blog, I am going to present a work by budl. It’s a comic series which I hope to add onto my blogs on weekly basis.
