New Year, Same Conflict

January 14, 2011 in World 016 News, World News

As 2011 begins, we follow the same war that has been going on for nearly a year and a half now. Players have come and gone, tribes have merged or disappeared. Thus far, C² has lead by a wide margin in conquers. The stats so far in January suggest that things will continue to remain the same as they have been for months, yet there has been a subtle change…

First off, I would like to apologize for the delay in this blog. Several things piled up all at once at the beginning of the year that set me behind, but I won’t bore you with all the details. On with the blog!

Once again, we visit the end game war, Plight vs C². Compared to last months map, one major change stands out in particular. There’s one less color! B~N~H took *MK*’s green, so what happened to *MK*? No, they didn’t get nobled or disbanded. Plight just shuffled players around between the two tribes, the end result being that Plight gained dominance in the remaining two continents *MK* had control of on the map, eliminating a color.

K86 has also changed tribal dominance, as C² managed to finally pass Plight in the continent after being separated by only a hair in last month’s blog. Other than that, not much has changed on the continental dominance maps.

Side 1:
Tribes: C²
Side 2:
Tribes: Plight, *MK*

Timeframe: Last month

Total conquers against opposite side:

Side 1: 784
Side 2: 68
Difference: 716

Points value of total conquers against opposite side:

Side 1: 7,467,898
Side 2: 641,485
Difference: 6,826,413

Compared to last months stats, C² increased their total point gains from Plight by over 1m points. It seems like C² winning this war seems inevitable. The stats seem to show that, right?

Not necessarily. The stats may support this possibility, yet they aren’t the only piece of evidence that can  support a possibility. Another can only be experienced by those currently playing on the world. While losses to C² may have increased, overall activity in Plight has increased.

Inactive accounts now see some activity, suggesting either new players or sitters. Inactive accounts are starting to be eaten. Attacks are starting to be launched back at C² again. In short, Plight seems to be attempting to turn things around.

Now one may ask why Plight lost even more villages this month if their overall activity increased? Rationally thinking, Plight has started to work towards making an effort at changing the war. However, they’ve only just begun, so while they appear to be on the right path to begin, the results will still take a while to be obvious, and that’s assuming that Plight continues to make an active effort to improve the tribe.

Thank you all again for reading. I hope that all the posts and mails and jokes at my expense about my blogs means that you guys enjoy them, as that is why I write them. Until next time, your W16 blogger and fellow spreader of carnage,
