WOW, W25!

This world never Fails to get boring!

The reason this issue is late is because I heard this was in the works and I wanted to include it in this week’s Blog!

Well as you can see SubV have taken in 5 Members of TDR;

Penthesilia

Lychaeus

loststryk

sockit1710

naga162

Now this ends the SubV Vs TDR war, so we will have a Final Stat count and show the casualties of this war on both sides, I will also be showing on the maps the gains of SubV with the recruitment of these 5 players, I will also be having an interview with loststryk and Penthesilia with inputs from all the new recruits.

And of course we will be having the usual update on the Pack Vs Morph war and see if there are any changes there.

Moe’s Summary of the Week!

Moe is still in South Africa and he even watched the USA get knocked out, personally I think he was the Ghanaian lucky charm!

But He will be back next week and I will be interviewing him (If nobody better turns up) about his recent holidays and his experiences on W25

W25 WORLD MAPS

As we can see the Recruitment has given SubV domination in k35, it has also given them clusters in k4 and k2, it also solidify s SubV domination in k27.

First up is the Recent Wars Section.

Well after 82 days of fighting, with nearly 3000 conquers and casualties on both sides, let’s get down to the nitty gritty and find out where the most damage was done.

The reason this weeks stats are down is because a number of TDR members have left TDR, but SubV have not stopped nobling them. Now looking at the stats, it shows that TDR have been throughly beaten, they did have a point in this war where they were winning after beating CKA NL, the only fallen member of SubV, TDR have lost a number of members, such as Sole Collector, ninmage, soaron, thunderballs and gamble. They have also had a number of members leave for other reasons such as ricky, B-RAN and Seawardorange.

Now this week I will be showing this weeks and the entire war conquer maps.

Last Weeks

Entire War

Wow as we can clearly see SubV have pushed TDR right out of k45/46 and have taken control over k35/36, but they have been pushed out of k26/27. So it has not been clear sailing for them throughout this war.

Now on to the Top Noblers in the SubV Vs TDR War.

  1. slick94153-TDR= 215
  2. Alexmichie-SubV= 208
  3. DipsyDixie – SubV= 151
  4. gougework1-SubV= 138
  5. Penthesilia –TDR= 116
  6. The Intimadater– SubV= 113
  7. Princess Di -SubV= 102
  8. Hero Boom-SubV=  96
  9. Moe/ hanibalI-SubV= 90
  10. Uk Patriot – SubV = 83
  11. Realistica-SubV=  73
  12. Gr869- SubV= 62
  13. loststryk –TDR= 60
  14. naga162- TDR= 60
  15. Chapyri -SubV= 57
  16. ISMAniatico– SubV= 51
  17. Immunesoul– SubV=  41
  18. Merabgeo- TDR = 40
  19. Lord A J Quinn– SubV= 38
  20. SilkSword- SubV= 35

Well Slick seems to have won the top nobler competition, but he was on the losing side so does that count? Alexmichie (IE ME LOL) was the top nobler on the SubV side so well done to me and to all the other Top Noblers.

Pack Vs Morph

Now onto the Pack Morph war, and let’s see what’s going on with the other major powers of this world. I will be taking the stats from back when the war started unofficially not when it became official as both sides prefer that, the date of that is 11th Apr 2010.

Pack have continued their recent domination and have restricted Morph to just 7 gains this week, they do seem to just be eating gelime, but will the end of the TDR war cause a change in the balance of power here or will Pack continue to push Morph back or will Morph find a new lease of life after seeing the victory of SubV and turn it around?

The map shows that this war is a very confined war with very small frontlines, it also shows that the 7 conquers of Morph seems to be snipes or re-nobles.

Top 15 Noblers

  1. red.scouser –Pack =127
  2. Billsmith –Morph=52
  3. Heavenly hell –Morph=51
  4. tormos11- Pack= 42
  5. chende9- Pack= 38
  6. coopes –Pack =37
  7. mystic2004 – Pack = 35
  8. ROSCOMMON1- Pack= 40
  9. African A –Morph=27
  10. glassman6419 –Pack= 26
  11. Lucky seven- Pack= 22
  12. killardan – Pack = 18
  13. Mjborch1–Morph= 18
  14. xcomputerx –Morph=18

Well done red.scouser even though as a United fan it pains me to say it. There is still Morph members at the top of the table so this war is not over yet.

SFM Vs TDR

With the fall apart of TDR this war is also essentially over, what will SFM’s reaction be to the recruitment?

The Final Stats

Last Week—SFM= 10     TDR= 11

Last Month—SFM =70   TDR=55

Since Declaration (6th of May 2010) – SFM = 88   TDR= 131

SFM are on the wrong end of the stats but recently they had been pulling it back and still in the final week it was close.

Interview

Alex: Introduce yourself to us.

Nikki: Hi, my name is Nikki and I’m an Al… I mean, I play the Penthesilia account. ;)

Lost: My name is Simon, I play w25 as loststryk.

Alex: How long have you been playing TW? W25? And what other worlds have you played?

Nikki: I’ve been playing TW for a year and a half, and am a self admitted noob. I “played” on a few worlds but failed to even achieve an academy before forgetting to log in. A couple friends conned me into trying W25 with promises of being stacked and getting free resources until I actually learnt to play. They were right, once I experienced the thrill of massacring those poor villages fresh out of BP, I was hooked.

I made a brief appearance on W32, where I was on the receiving end of a terrifyingly well coordinated Op that left me no option but to pee my pants and hit delete. In an effort to redeem myself I joined W38, where I continue to wage a ruthless war on in actives and barbs! And finally, most recently I can be found on W50, establishing a massive collection of hate mail, love mail, and angry fans.

Lost:  Been playing this world for around 2 years, played 32 for a short while, I co-play on w38 and w50 as well.

Alex: Can you give us an idea of your w25 history? (Past tribes, etc).

Nikki: I started the world in K4, intent on destroying the entire K in my one woman tribe. Alas, it was not meant to be. I realized I had to conform, and I made my way into INC. Once in INC, the winds of fate buffeted me around like a ragdoll until I found myself here, in SubV.

Lost: I have played in a few tribes; some of the more well known were ADHD, ChAoS, Pack, TDR and now SUBV

Alex: Why did you leave Pack, is there anything you would do differently there?

Nikki: Usually I get paid to put up with the levels of frustration I felt being in Pack, since TW wasn’t willing to offer me a biweekly pay check I either had to leave, or delete. My style of play simply isn’t compatible with their vision.

I suppose I could have drank more, cared less, and made no effort to keep those of us that split off into TDR in PACK. The end result was inevitable.

Lost: I left Pack for many reasons, the major contribution to my leaving was when greyghost stepped down and superweif became leader, it was apparent to most of us, not just the ones who left, that superweifs leadership skills were leaving a lot to be desired, with the amount of in actives and her unwillingness to deal with issues made it impossible to stay there.

Alex: Why do you think TDR failed and what do you think the key points in its downfall was?

Nikki: TDR failed because we were unable to come together as a team. Too many egos, too many agendas.

Lost: TDR failed because we slowly turned into pack, a tribe full of in actives with people more interested in their own gain instead of working towards the best interest of the tribe.

Anything red is dead and the brown stuff will follow shortly….

Alex: What are your views on the rest of the world, the players and tribes?

Nikki: I have to stand on my tiptoes to see the rest of the world past my village walls; I try not to look too often. It’s a scary world out there!

Alex: What did you think of Pack’s (if any) involvement in the TDR/SubV war?

Nikki: It was like trying to keep up with a menopausal woman’s mood swings. One day they’d offer support, the next day we’d have to pull our own D for fear of them attacking us, things would work themselves out and they’d send support again, only to mail threats to account sit and eject anyone that was supporting TDR. A textbook example of a frenemy.

Having said that, there were some steadfast individuals whose troops will be returning home disappointed in not having been a part of the action ;)

Lost: Packs involvement was funny, we had many pack players offering us support and we were able to bolster up our front lines, but packs internal leadership disputes, which led to some council members leaving pack, caused a rift in the relationship, especially when people like chende9 knee jerk reaction was to email all pack members to pull support from TDR and then threaten to deal with anyone supporting us, which left our front lines vulnerable for a period of time.

With chende and then hearing superweif were making deals to allow SubV to noble in pack dominated k’s, we realised that we were being screwed over by our so called friends, I think it’s safe to say most of us won’t be sending xmas cards to them this year.

I don’t think I know of any tribe that is so intent on making sure that it’s going to be killed.

Alex: Other players- best attacker, Best Defender, Best Politician, funniest player and most annoying?

Lost: Best attacker would be from my experience, penthesilia,

Best defender, it’s hard to say, because most of the names being thrown around have huge tribal support and anyone can defend like that, it’s not exactly rocket science lol

Best politician, has to be UK Patriot

Funniest Player, I don’t think I have met any….

Most Annoying Player, has to be ArmandMalta, although it does come with a silver lining, he is the bench mark of what we can all aspire not to be, it’s nice for everyone to wake up and know that no matter what happens, there is always someone worse off than us, like armand :)

Alex: Any Predictions for this world? And who do you think will win the current wars?

Lost: I think it’s a pretty fair gone conclusion that SUBV are going to win this world now, and the war between morph and pack, all I can say is go morph, we are cheering for you :)

Nikki: I doubt my predictions differ much from anyone else looking at the new map.

Alex: Favourite things aside from TW.

Lost: spending time with my other half, walking the dog and taking the piss out of lychaeus.

Nikki: Hockey, friendship, a stiff G&T, and gold digging. lol

Alex: Moe or Alex?

Nikki: Alex ;)

Lost: Alex, moe is a nub

I asked a few other members on their opinions on the recruitment here are there answers;

Sockit: All I have to say about the change to SubV. Ben Franklin says it all in his definition of insanity and to stay in TDR would be insane.

“The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.”-Benjamin Franklin

Lychaeus: “The move makes me tingle inside…a little like sex but without the mess. And a lot less effort. And with more people involved. Mostly men….wait, no it sounds like my normal sex in my house

Milestone Corner.

This is for the recent milestones of the world just a little congratulation’s to certain people in the world for their recent efforts. So far we are thinking about anyone who has just turned 10 million as we feel this is a good standard to get to and worth a bigger than usual acknowledgment and people who just got 100 million ODA and then top nobler of the week plus anything you can think of, I will add if it is relevant.

The first congratulations to people who have reach 10 million recently are;

RagingPanda

A Really Big well done!
