The Will to Win

What makes a winner in Tribal Wars? Is it the diplomatic prowess of individual leaders? The unmatched skills of a tribe’s war co-ordinators? The cunning of a council? The aggressiveness of each member, or the ability each member has, to act as a piece of the wheel? No. In my books, what makes a winner, both in the real world, and in this game of Tribal Wars, is whether they have, the Will to Win.  Welcome to Issue 3 of my world 56 blog. There are quite a few events that have unfolded in the last few weeks, though, they have not impacted overly much on the grand scheme of things. I would like to note now, that all stats and maps are taken from the last 4 weeks, as I only have limited options for the conquer maps :( Today, there is the usual bits and pieces as well as a new segment, but then, Im not going to ruin it ;)

 

 MoM Vs W2V

Side 1:

Tribes: MoM

Side 2:

Tribes: W2V

Timeframe: Last month

Total conquers against opposite side:

Side 1: 272

Side 2: 2,173

Difference: 1,901 

Statswise, its been a walkover from day one. Course, you guys do not need me to tell you that! 

The current rate of W2V expansion is massive, in this past month, they have increased their dominance in once MoM controlled continents, to over 50%, without showing any signs of slowing down, at all. Continent 35 has almost fallen and continents 45 and 56 look to be following suit. This war machine has the momentum to stake its claim to the core continents, in little over a month. This poses a question however. What then? MoM looks to be falling at an increased rate due to the combined – but not allied – forces of OHYEAH, -MM-, W2V and [T]. Will W2V push through MoM until they meet OHYEAH? Will they attack the only other eastern power -MM-? Or will they attack [T], with whom, they share the second largest border with, next to MoM?

MoM Vs OHYEAH

Side 1:

Tribes: MoM

Side 2:

Tribes: OHYEAH

Timeframe: Last month

Total conquers against opposite side:

Side 1: 650

Side 2: 238

Difference: 412 Though MoM is still holding an obvious lead, from past periods, their conquers against OHYEAH are starting to decline. With only one border that is not at war, this is expected, and no-one can expect MoM to do better. They are, after all, currently engaged in the biggest war in our world, and even, in many other worlds. They are, fighting more than 70% of the world. So, as far as I see it, their losses are perfectly acceptable. They will however, go down swinging, and many players, will not give up, until there is nothing left of them.

 

I hear rumours of a ceasefire between OHYEAH and Tutti. Actually, that is incorrect, I have multiple confirmations of a ceasefire between the two tribes. This should, theoretically, allow OHYEAH to turn their complete attention to MoM. This does not yet show in the stats, but then, will it at all? Though MoMs own conquers are slowing, that does not necessarily mean that OHYEAH’s will increase. I doubt we will see any real improvements on this front for some time, due to the need for backline members to move to the front.

Overall, OHYEAH may have a brighter future ahead of them, they need only start capitalising on the wounded MoM.

 

MoM Vs Tarot

 

Side 1:

Tribes: MoM

Side 2:

Tribes: [T]

Timeframe: Last month

Total conquers against opposite side:

Side 1: 186

Side 2: 653

Difference: 467 

 

The tribe newest to the world war, and definitely, the youngest power in the world, they have gotten off to a slow start to the war, relative to the other tribes involved, that being said, from my perspective, 600+ conquers is not bad at all :)

The initial Tarot op saw a high concentration of attacks on the northern stretch of the front, with a swift dismissal of MoM in continents 24 and 33. Poor defensive co-ordination saw tarot lose a fair chunk of outlying villages, as well as a few very good players. As I have said before though, this war has one purpose for the Tarot players, to train them for war.

MoM Vs -MM-

Side 1:

Tribes: -MM-

Side 2:

Tribes: MoM

Timeframe: Last month

Total conquers against opposite side:

Side 1: 1,045

Side 2: 336

Difference: 709

The past month has seen -MM- grow exponentially. They have the second highest conquer count against MoM, and rightly so. This small tribe has guts, I have always said that, and I honestly believe, that even if MoM were able to focus solely on them, they would still give one hell of a hiding, even if numbers forced their eventual defeat.

Though MM has lost a fair chunk of territory in continent 77, their gains in continent 67 far outstrip their losses, some will argue that the accounts that MM are hitting are inactive, perhaps they are, but no-one but the defeated care how the lost. To MM, they are winning, they started the war with nearly no dominance in continent 67, and with recent ops, now control a massive portion of it. From my perspective, the obvious op was not just a simple area or player target, but an ‘unfocused’ territory grab. In theory, this would allow all players that move to this continent, an equal growth opportunity in a radius around their given targets. An op that doesnt necessarily deal a decisive blow, but an op that paves the road for future ops.

If my thoughts are in fact, on the money, then whoever is co-ordinating -MM- knows exactly how to run a long term war, and should they continue to organise the ops of -MM-, they will be a force to be reckoned with, should -MM- enter the world stage as a major power.

THE WORLD WAR 

 

 

Side 1:
Tribes: W2V, [T], -MM-, OHYEAH
Side 2:
Tribes: MoM

Timeframe: Last month

Total conquers against opposite side:

Side 1: 3,848
Side 2: 1,366
Difference: 2,482

 

I am just going to say it. MoM is in an absolutely shocking situation :D 1 month, and they are nearly 3000 conquers in the red. Going by their tribal average of 3.3 million points per player, that is essentially ten players down, 30 million points, not counting the players that have jumped ship. And that is only one month, where will they be come the new year?

Will Tutti move against MoM now that they have a ceasefire with OHYEAH? From a warmongers perspective, that is the only logical choice that I see, they will have easy fought gains, and that will take the four versus one to a five versus one. It will be MoM versus the entire world, instead of just most of it xD

It is kind of sad how our first world war, is a huge gangbang, of proportions rarely seen in tribal wars. MoM is on its definite decline, and will try some very risky moves in the next few weeks to attempt their survival, however, I believe their effort will be futile, as no doubt, information of this potential plan will have reached the ears of many an enemy. I doubt that MoM’s enemies will allow such a revival to eventuate.

That being said, with MoM on the continued decline, the other major tribes must have an endgame plan in mind by now. Lets delve into that scenario a little bit.

[T] is in an interesting position, being heavily bordered with both W2V and OHYEAH, their only hope is to attempt to create my “Three Power Concept”. As many of you will have read on the externals, by creating a world where there are only three major powers, a balance of power will be created. The most likely powers at this time to be in this concept are: [T], W2V, and OHYEAH. If this scenario eventuates, and it is more than a few months away from a possible fruition, it will create an unsteady peace, which will in all likelihood, end in the gangbanging of one of the other three tribes. That will of course, leave only two tribes left, and in a one on one fight, victory is never assured. I would personally like the top 3 to war each other in the end, seeing A versus B versus C. It would make for quite an interesting endgame.

W2V on the other hand, they will be more tricky. If they continue to plow through MoM, they will eventually border all of the other remaining powers. At this point, they will have to start recruiting some more members to fill the ranks of inactive or quitting members. They will either war another and pick up the best players, or offer a merger to one or both of the minor powers to replenish ranks. If they do in fact go to war, they open themselves up to a potential gangbang. I personally believe that the leadership of W2V is highly competent, and have other options on the table.

OHYEAH, is currently the weakest of the major powers, not because of size, or anything skill, but due to activity. They have been hit severely by MoM, and have still not fully recovered. At this point, their best chance of making endgame is ridding themselves of as much deadweight as possible, and biding their time, to jump in on a gangbang and possibly pick up a few more good members.

Tutti has recently accepted/offered a ceasefire with OHYEAH, and obviously, both powers have accepted. I believe this is the best decision they can make, especially should it lead to them attacking MoM. By attacking MoM in the south, they stand to gain a large portion of territory, and stake their claim to late game. A future war or merger with -MM- will only accentuate that claim.

-MM- as far as I am concerned has a lot of potential, from my perspective, I believe they have a very capable war co-ordinator, who is thinking in the long term, and is setting his/her tribe up, to not only survive into the late game, but stake an efficient and stable claim to the endgame. They are making huge progress against MoM and must maintain this until the hit other opposition. At this point, they will have to look for new recruits, or new conquests. More than likely, they will attack, or merge with Tutti. Then again, they have many friends in W2V, perhaps, they are merely biding their time to join their long time friends.

Well guys, all done. I apologise for the wait, but I hope you enjoyed the read ;)
