Moe’s Summary of the Week!
Since Moe is still on holiday and is being Lazy we have No summary this week.
W25 WORLD MAPS
There is no real change in the Map this week, except for the disbanding of -TIF- and the formation of [TL].
First up is the Recent Wars Section.
Obviously we are going to start with the SubV Vs TDR war, (SubV are first as they declared, from 2010, April 9th) now first are the stats. Note all stats are taken from the day before on the Sunday.
Another Good week for SubV with over 200+ Nobles on TDR, will the onslaught continue or will SubV win yet another war, I personally know that TDR have some fight left in them so lets see how it looks next week?
Well SubV seem to have well and truly moved into K36, with fighting still fierce in k35. TDR seem to be still pushing SubV back in K27, And K28 seems to look like it’s about to be removed of all TDR presence like K46 which now has almost been removed of TDR except for 5 villages. Will lnlsban be able to hold onto those 5 for another week?
Now on to the Top Noblers in the SubV Vs TDR War.
- slick94153-TDR= 212
- Alexmichie-SubV= 150
- gougework1-SubV= 133
- DipsyDixie – SubV= 132
- Penthesilia –TDR= 116
- The Intimadater– SubV= 113
- Hero Boom-SubV= 106
- Princess Di -SubV= 95
- Moe/ hanibalI-SubV= 90
- Uk Patriot – SubV = 70
- Realistica-SubV= 67
- naga162 –TDR= 60
- loststryk –TDR= 60
- Gr869- SubV= 55
- Chapyri -SubV= 53
- ISMAniatico– SubV= 51
- Immunesoul– SubV= 41
- Merabgeo- TDR = 40
- Lord A J Quinn– SubV= 38
- SilkSword- SubV= 35
Slick seems to have reawakened, as has Realistica and Gr869, so this war is now bringing in new hitters each week, any suggestions on who will be the top nobler at the end of the war and who will be the most influential in the down fall of the winning side?
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.
Well this war has got interesting, Pack seem to have really stepped it up this week, will we see a response from Morph next week or has the numbers game overwhelmed them? But the overall stats are still close.
The Map backs up the stats, Pack seem to be pushing Morph back all along the frontline. Is this due to them finding inactives or is this Pack flexing its muscle and giving the world a show of what is to come, and them trying to finally shake of the reputation about them only being good defenders?
Top 15 Noblers
- red.scouser –Pack =56
- Billsmith –Morph=52
- Heavenly hell –Morph=51
- tormos11- Pack= 38
- coopes –Pack =37
- mystic2004 – Pack = 34
- ROSCOMMON1- Pack= 34
- African A –Morph=27
- glassman6419 –Pack= 26
- Lucky seven- Pack= 22
- chende9- Pack= 18
- killardan – Pack = 18
- Mjborch1–Morph= 18
- xcomputerx –Morph=18
- CouchyNZ–Morph= 14
Wow and a few members of Morph have been removed from the list, and a number of new Pack members have jumped well up the list, a special congratulations to Roscommon and red.scouser who seem to have found a new lease of life?
SFM Vs TDR
Last Week—SFM= 13 TDR= 21
Last Month—SFM =47 TDR=79
Since Declaration (6th of May 2010) – SFM = 61 TDR= 113
It is still close in this war, but it does seem to be half of SFM against 1 or 2 members of TDR, will SFM’s numbers and Unity overcome the Size Difference?
–TIF- Seem to have disbanded so a well done to OTL.
Alex: Introduce yourself to us.
Matt: My name is Matt; I am 17 years old and will be going to college in the fall. I enjoy strolls through the grocery store and romantic dinners at Wendy’s.
Tris: I am from India, aged 16, currently playing Razdds2, Matt’s co-player, People Call me Tris.
Alex: How long have you been playing TW? W25? And what other worlds have you played?
Matt: My first world was w25; I started on January 5th 2009. Two of my friends from school were playing this game, one of them being Mjborch (quit but acct still alive). They got me into this, and it was a real joy seeing me outgrow them!
Matt: I have not dedicated myself to play any other worlds, although I’ve been on 36,38,42,44, and 50 as well as two UK worlds. I’m notorious for agreeing to co-play someone and then never really log onto the account!
Tris: Joined TW at November 2005 so almost 5years now. I started World25 with a few friends, but then quit. Got to know Matt (Razdds2) and started helping him around. Well I have played World 10.de, World 1-20, World 24, World 26, World 28, World 32, World 38, World 39-42, World 47-50.
Alex: Can you give us an idea of your w25 history? (Past tribes, etc).
Matt: My life on w25 began on the rim in K94. The first major tribe I was in was called O.N.E. It was a real fun time; we were fighting INH and the frontline pretty much stayed the same for the entire time. That is when I met our dear Dave (UK). He still remembers (I hope ) that little rim noob that wanted to join his tribe. And the real turning point in my history on w25 was the day I joined INH; I learned so much about the game by participating in operations. I’ve met great friends; some are still here and others have moved on, but none the less each one of them made me a better player and a smarter person.
Tris: Was a part of Auskilla’s Tribe Click.
Alex: So you are now the Number 1 in W25, Well Done! Some people are calling you a pointwhores, what is your take on this?
Matt: They can call me pointwhore as much as they like, but I highly doubt a pointwhore would be able to get #3 ODA. I haven’t nuked anything for ages and I’m still in the top 15 for ODA, so pointwhore isn’t the right title. The reason for the 12k average village is that I wanted to achieve the highest achievement in Tribal Wars; rank 1. There was no other way except to wait and wait for the people above me to go inactive, but I don’t have that kind of time. Since they all have way more coins than I do, the only choice was to build villages. It took between 20-22 days to gain 2.6 million points and grab that #1 spot.
Tris: Well we have a decent ODA and ODD, so there goes your proof then we are not pointwhores!
Alex: You do have maximum village builds, how do you find this beneficial?
Tris: yes, there are 2 benefits actually, 1. I am ranked #1 because of it 2. Even after having full builds i have decent amount of troops to defend myself or noble others, so it really doesn’t matter.
Alex: You have recently been in your own little tribe for a long time; do you not want to be in a big tribe?
Matt: I have nothing against big tribes; after all I did spend a lot of time in INH. There is not much joy that I get from this game anymore. All of my personal enemies are gone, so there is no one that I can fight with any authentic passion. I get joy from creating tribe names, pictures, and slogans. By being in a big tribe that is something that I would not be allowed to do. Most of my friends have left as well, a few still remain, and the rest have just been two-faced. So that is the reason why I stay in my little tribe, for the joy that comes with customizing it.
Tris: Well its Matt’s decision and I honour it.
Alex: Tris you are Blog Staff the same as me, which world do you Blog for and do you have any suggestions for W25 Blog?
Tris: I blog for World 48 and I think you should take out more inside information on these wars. E.g. how did they really start etc?
Alex: Any Predictions for this world? And who do you think will win the current wars?
Matt: Once SubV is finished with TDR, they will move onto Pack. Between the war with TDR and Pack, SubV will most likely suffer from inactivity due to player boredom. This will be THE ONLY obstacle for them in SubV’s quest to conquer the entire world.
Tris: Well honestly I think SubV after nobling TDR and finishing them off will turn their attention to Pack. Well that’s the war I can’t really predict because SubV are strong but not very active.
Alex: Other players- best attacker, Best Defender, Best Politician, funniest player and most annoying?
Matt: Best Attacker – I am very unsure about this, since no one has had an individual opportunity to really show their skills.
Best Defender – It is also difficult to decide on this, since a person’s ODD does not mean they are good at defending. For example, having OTHER PLAYERS send you stacks of defence is not a sign that you are good at defending. Anyone can stack villages, but few people can actually snipe 150ms trains.
Best Politician – I will have to go with UK on this. He knows his stuff and usually has good awareness of the situation. This category was not offered, but I will say Superwief is by far the worst politician I have ever seen. She fails to analyze her tribe’s situation and it will cost her in the future.
Funniest Player – He is no longer on this world, but the funniest player I have met is Redice King. Back in O.N.E when we had some of our tribe in this chat room he would just make me laugh so much; it was a really great time.
Most Annoying Player – Johnloomis, period. This guy caused me stress and incited inter-tribal issues like it was his job. He made fun of my friends and got me in trouble with my tribe (INH) several times. Sacerdoter and UK remember well
Tris: Sorry can’t answer this one
Alex: Tris you are Blog Staff the same as me, which world do you Blog for and do you have any suggestions for W25 Blog?
Tris: I blog for World 48 and I think you should take out more inside information on these wars . Eg. How did they really start etc
Alex: Favourite things aside from TW.
Matt: Aside from TW, I really enjoy hanging out with a few of my good friends. I’m a fairly simple guy. Food, my family, and a few friends are all I really care about.
Alex: Moe or Alex?
Matt: Alex because needs a boost on the scoreboard, but also because Moe hasn’t been too good lately.
Tris: err Alex?
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;
A Really Big well done!
And the Hitters of the Week are;
No New Hitters this week
But a special Well Done to;
Muad`Dib and Uk patriot, who both got to 200 Million ODA today, unlucky Maud for being just 2nd.
