State of the Game

October 15, 2009 in Special Features, Team Writings, World 042 News

October is a busy month for most people. It is a time when people are going back to school, college, jobs, and other elements of what many refer to as “Real Life”. These things are seriously beginning to conflict with our abilities to play the game. In this conflict, we must remember that we as players, play the game, rather than the game playing us. Over the past few weeks, many great players, staff members and bloggers have left us, moving on to bigger and better things in their RL adventures.

But every member of the Staff is committed to the continuation and advancement of the game as a whole. This includes our blog department, so I have refined and expanded the Blog Application, and will be hiring new bloggers for the open worlds.

World 42

In other news, world 42 opened today, accumulating over 17’000 players before the #1 ranked player reached 100 points. Nothing shows the general enthusiasm of the tribal wars community like the opening of a new server. Here are the top 10 tribes out of the gate:

Rank Tribe name Points of the best 40 player Total points Members Average points per player Villages Average points per village
1 HnK 3.047 4.297 63 68 63 68
2 FAD 2.950 5.074 80 63 80 63
3 D*44 2.909 4.913 78 63 78 63
4 PacMan 2.861 2.906 41 71 41 71
5 WLFPAK 2.800 4.835 80 60 80 60
6 Or-D 2.647 4.426 75 59 75 59
7 H.O.T 2.645 3.992 67 60 67 60
8 Google 2.643 2.691 41 66 41 66
9 SQUAD 2.559 3.015 49 62 49 62
10 Boom! 2.546 4.057 71 57 71 57

I wish good luck to the players of W42 as they lead their village and tribe to glory and power in a world full of new opportunities.
