Ok so my post has been a little late than usual, you can find out why by going through my threads. I am sorry about the quality of this post since I wrote this with a major headache which I still have so I am sorry I f half of it doesn’t make any sense.

World News

Most of you are familiar with the IBAN v LOST and Myst war, some stats were posted last week to breakdown the situation between the tribes, though the data proved that IBAN were ahead and so did the war statistics, well not much has happened between the conflicts besides the obvious of increase in ennoblements. We can look at the change within a week and comparing how much the sides have adapted to the situation:

Side 1:
Tribes: IBAN

Side 2:
Tribes: LOST (MsO) (MsA)

Timeframe: Forever
Total conquers:

Side 1: 28 (+10)
Side 2: 46 (+31)
Difference: 18 (+15)

Total conquers against opposite side:

Side 1: 6 (+2)
Side 2: 4 (+2)
Difference: 2 (+0)


Points value of total conquers:

Side 1: 51,493 (+22017)
Side 2: 71,168 (+47836)
19,675 (+13531)

Points value of total conquers against opposite side:

Side 1: 13,214 (+5363)
Side 2: 6,497 (+2529)
Difference: 6,717 (+2834)


Total change in Statistics:

Side 1: 27392
Side 2: 50938
Difference: 16380

You can see that Side 2 has improved by a large amount, Side 2 is made up of: LOST (MsO) (MsA)

While IBAN are on their own. Now considering the fact that there are 3 tribes you wouldn’t be surprised to see their large numbers. But looking at the statistics it seems IBAN are paying more attention to the war than Side 2 since IBAN have more ennoblements on side 2 than they have on IBAN while side 2 have much more ennoblements overall meaning they aren’t taking as much notice or are taking the easy route. Maybe it is some sort of tactic to increase their chances. For all we know we can only say IBAN are taking their war on side 2 more seriously than they are.

Now let’s go into OD yet again.

2 Insert Badass Name Here! 880.654

8 ARE YOU? 487.410
11 Mists Awaken 366.947
17 Mists Over passing 264.056

As you can see IBAN have surpassed their numbers by quite a gap.

Rank Tribe name Defeated
1 Insert Badass Name Here! 531.173

5 ARE YOU? 194.824
14 Mists Awaken 106.789
17 Mists Over passing 105.527

same here, when combined IBAN are still ahead by 100k so don’t count them out.

Searching through the forums there have been bad seeds which rise on side 2, stooping low as cheating. This data may not be true.

Now I know what everyone is thinking, they think that because of the war IBAN is taking a serious toll and that is why they are dropping ranks. Well the fact is that’s not true. They have lost a few members due to the war but overall it is simply because of the fact people think it is time for them to leave like sowwy, they feel that they have served their purpose and the time has come. The following graphs below will explain what has really happened to Iban:


This graph shows Ibans change in member count, you can follow the line across, as you can see once the war had begun Iban increased their numbers of members, who knows maybe it was a tactic of sort to intimidate the opponents. But within 2 weeks of the war beginning they suddenly dropped in members. This may have been the side’s ennoblement stage as the numbers decreased by approximately 8 so that could have been the enemies’ main stage of offence. Although keeping an eye on IBAN’s member list you can see many people have been ennobled or have restarted. This may be because of the sudden loss of players IBAN have suffered.


Okay this is what iban ODD looks like, you can see how it suddenly increased as soon as the war had begun maybe meaning IBAN were pre-pared and ready for what was coming or it could be bad organisation by the opponents. All we can say is that the war has helped Iban increase their ODD. You know this also from some of the big names in IBAN are also ranked high in their Opponents defeated meaning the war has helped them in a way.


This is what is swaying people’s opinion on Iban’s status. You can see the sudden drop in rank from rank 2 to 11. You may be thinking this is because of a mass number of ennoblements by the opponents but you’ve heard it before, look at the bigger picture. Iban have had many of their players leaving TW for different purposes. We know this by looking at the member graph. We also know Iban have had their growth slowed down of course because of this war. Some of the major high ranked tribes are not involved in any sort of conflicts.

Kuchiki:  Hello MrLove, and thank you for taking time out of your day to answer these questions for me!

MrLove: No, Problem

Kuchiki: Great. Now, how long have you been playing Tribalwars to date? And what interesting figures have you met across your times playing that have followed you to this world?

MrLove: Ok, I used to play Wow. Had a addiction, when I stopped playing that I found this amazing online game Tribal Wars.  Well, I was a noob in 2007, And Rimed the world I joined. But I met some interesting people. They were the days when who? Were dominating tribe’s. Well that year I also had my first child, so I forgot about TW until 2008. This is when I discovered the art of TW, The forums of TW. I have always been good at numbers, and this game was like playing chess and being a politician! Anyway, this year I met h0llygh0st and decided to join in Apathy. I have made good progress there with h0lly, and now I have also been selected for Nima’s W2 .Co.Uk which I’m looking forward to Appling my trade. Sorry for the essay, I could go on all day.

Kuchiki: Has your past experience or the famous figures that you have met helped improve your game play or knowledge of the game?

MrLove: Yes, of course. I would never have started using the forum’s as a form of propaganda, my timing and calculation skills, Sniping, Back timing I have learned from people.

MrLove: I even remember a girl telling me how to use scripts:|

MrLove: Some of the best player’s I have met have also been girl’s…

Kuchiki: MrLove is an interesting name; can you tell me where it originated from and why you chose this name?

MrLove: Well, I wanted to choose a name that was catching ad had a theme. MrLove was the name that my brain discovered that afternoon. My new name I Iz Trollin, Will be .Co.Uk Alias, and a alias I can relate to and has meaning. I am a Troll, and I have a loud mouth.

Kuchiki: Now I see there seems to be a lot of mixed feelings towards you on the forums, can you perhaps let me in on why you think this is?

MrLove: It’s not mixed feelings, It apathic feeln’s. I belong to a tribe who I say is being noob banged. We only have 23 members, but so many tribe’s want to hurt us

MrLove: I devote my feelings on the forum’s, Where I get flamed or loved.

MrLove: I have no care, or what people feel towards me, I have utter devotion towards my tribe. If people were nicer to us we could be friends ya know?

MrLove: And any way, we provoke people to attack, the reason’s for this is darwin’s theory of evolution.

MrLove: Only the best will survive, And through this minor selection we can tell who has the ball’s to be in Apathy, and who lied through their teeth in application stage.

Kuchiki: What is your position for  in APATHY, are you a normal member or do you have some other role to play in APATHY?

MrLove: I work alongside h0llsh0st, I’m what you say a baron in term’s.

Kuchiki: So why APATHY? Did you join before hand and then never made another thought about it or was it that h0llyghost was leading, why?

MrLove: Ok, I hate family tribe’s, Sister tribe’s. Mass – Recruiting point whore’s.

MrLove: I have a very aggressive style, And I hate villa around me that belong to us.

MrLove: h0llygh0st I started with from the start. I made sure I was next to him by luck I believe. Had to restart once.

MrLove: But, all in all, H0llygh0st was the biggest influence in my decision.

Kuchiki: So why is that you made sure you were with h0lly is it so that you could work together, quick income when needed or is he a good influence, or is it a little friendly rivalry?

MrLove: It’s why we don’t care, We have 3 players in are triangle. Me, h0llygh0st and Cory. It’s a foundation. And ‘No’ it’s not rivalry we work together. That is the most important thing. It’s always nice to work with a player that understands you that you can rely on. If it’s sitting, Sending joint train’s. Clearance’s etc.

Kuchiki: Ah I see, so are there any special enemies out there? being currently in a war you can mention the tribes but is there a rivalry between you and someone else that may have originated from your past and followed you to this world?

MrLove: Nop, I have no enemies. Everyone who has a problem with me I invite you to attack. I do not see us at war, We move to the best villa’s we can find. If that cause’s a issue then I’m sorry. There’s allot of people out there who mock us, and think we are a joke. But really, they wish they could be just like us.

Kuchiki: How do you find the speed on this world? Do you think that the “1″ speed is just about right or would you prefer something a bit quicker say, 1.5 or 2? What type of speed do you believe you benefit from the most? (without giving away too much information!)

MrLove: Speed is not a issue, You will find me the most active player around. But I have to admit, Speed 1 is the best. But I have grown to hate pally weapons this last week. I’m still having dream’s now of that bonfire…..

Kuchiki: Overall what do you expect for the next month or so of this world? And how do you think IBAN will play into things?

MrLove: I expect to be gang banged. I have learned from Boxxy that you only become a true TW player if you get a villa down to 300 points

MrLove: iBan, I have high hopes for, Thing’s will settle down. And I hope to see them exceed their expectation.

Kuchiki: If you could tip any tribe to win this world (not including IBAN) that would it is?

and Why?

MrLove: That’s a hard one. I will think for 2 mins…

MrLove: I can only say Apathy, With the right move’s and organization. I like the look of JOUST also. I have respect for any tribe that keep’s to less than 40 members.

Kuchiki: What made you join w40 instead of w41 and what made you join apathy?

MrLove: Ok, w41 I hate the settings. Speed 1.6x is not for me. I don’t really like the smithy settings.

MrLove: And this is my first church world, so it’s a learning curve.

Kuchiki: Thank you for taking the time to answer these questions for me!

MrLove: That’s no problem.
