World 48 Aftermath

August 4, 2011 in Uncategorized, World 048 News, World News, Worlds 41-50 News

We of world 48, are obstinate and stubborn, unwilling to accept change, whether good or bad. Our most common reactions are those of disbelief and denial, closely followed by a powerful urge to take vengeance, on anyone, and everyone. Our tribal wars careers are fueled by these things, and more often than not, the actions we take to rectify, are irrational and overbearing. We have a powerful need to hate, even when the reasons for the hatred are long past. Our most virile battles are fought with words, with our achievements on the field of battle, being only an extension. We are a world that lacks adaptation. We are, World 48.

Welcome to issue 5. I am not too sure how to follow last weeks blog, so I will go back to basics. Though basic, there are many things that I will be covering in this blog. I have two special features, as well as the normal war stats and maps. I will also cover the ASCN and Womble merger in quite a bit of detail.

Firstly, I would like to give you feature number 1. An interview with our late moderator, File not Found.

Enjoy

On behalf of the world 48 community, I would like to thankyou for the interview, it was indeed an honour to get your views on the climate of our world. I wish you the best of luck, in your future endeavours.

Now then, onto the wars of World 48. We will start with:

PIRANA VS -XIII-

First things first, the stats!

Side 1:
Tribes: -XIII-
Side 2:
Tribes: PIRANA, -DIE-

Timeframe: Last week

Total conquers against opposite side:

Side 1: 24
Side 2: 24
Difference: 0

Dead even in the stats, this past week. Not a whole lot to say on this situation, it is one of the lower profile wars of our world.

Pink = conquers against red

Teal = conquers against blue

The stats are identical for this war, though the conquers are not. I assumed most conquers made were retakes, but they are not. the nobling is active on both sides of the war. I do believe that -XIII- are on their last legs, and that Womble will now declare war on them. The silent merger of ASCN and Womble, has left very little for the ex-ASCN members to noble.

PIRANA VS A|V

The stats:

Side 1:
Tribes: A|V
Side 2:
Tribes: PIRANA, -DIE-

Timeframe: Last week

Total conquers against opposite side:

Side 1: 15
Side 2: 86
Difference: 71

Well, A|V is on its way out. They are being thoroughly crushed by PIRANA, and with CRASH now also at war with them, they no longer have any hope left of survival. Their defeat however, is likely to herald the return of war between CRASH and PIRANA, as there is very little else, to noble in that part of the world.

PIRANA looks to gain the most from this war, as members of A|V are joining them. With the backline of A|V turning hostile, and the frontline being thoroughly smashed, I predict their fall, in under a month.

CRASH V A|V

The stats, as of one week.

Side 1:
Tribes: A|V
Side 2:
Tribes: CRASH

Timeframe: Last week

Total conquers against opposite side:

Side 1: 0
Side 2: 52
Difference: 52

Another very one sided battle. This war originally started over the supposed refugee gemallia. A reckless move on the part of A|V who are already engaged in a losing war with PIRANA, it would seem, that it is a failed D-Day.

As FnF has stated already, A|V holds an interesting position in the world. Their demise will bring about the first true world war, especially with momentum of victory on the sides of CRASH and PIRANA, the two giants will likely clash. With the fall of ASCN, all hope of a fourth major power rising to balance the world, has dissipated. This means, that world 48, is truly a world of three.

CRASH v WOMBLE

The stats:

Side 1:
Tribes: Womble
Side 2:
Tribes: CRASH

Timeframe: Last week

Total conquers against opposite side:

Side 1: 76
Side 2: 27
Difference: 49

This past week has seen the lead turn to Womble, with a lead of more than double of CRASH’s conquers. The stats show Womble to be leading, this week. As many have predicted already, the war will simply go back and forth, back and forth, until one of the other major/minor powers is removed to give an advantage.

Womble clearly have the western front under their thumb, with near to no opposition, this has forever been the weakest point of CRASH. An op against FcBunyodkor has seen some gains in the east, though, not enough to have any real impact on this war.

The majority of conquers made by CRASH this past week, have been retakes it appears, as very few gains seem to have been held.

WOMBLE v PIRANA

The stats:

Side 1:
Tribes: Womble
Side 2:
Tribes: -DIE-, PIRANA

Timeframe: Last week

Total conquers against opposite side:

Side 1: 37
Side 2: 1
Difference: 36

Another very clear victory for Womble. Mind you, PIRANA has not put up even a decent fight these past months. There really is not a whole lot to say about them, that I havent said before. They have the most secure backline out of the 3 powers, and insist on not using them efficiently, or effectively.

not even a successful retake on PIRANA’s side. Though the war appears to have slowed down in k43, I attribute this more to a rebuilding of forces, than anything else. The ex ASCN are still mopping up in k13 and k23, but that should not continue for much longer.

I am very intrigued as to why ASCN merged into, or joined Womble. I really hoped to see them become another major power. Their war with ElfW would have given them quite a large new territory. It would have also given them a fantastic base, to attack -XIII- from. Their victory here would have created a balance in the world. Now, I cannot help but look at our map, and be reminded of the Chinese Three Kingdoms, With the ruthless and battle hardened veterans of Wei in the north. The much untested but well trained forces of Wu in the south, and the western forces of Shu, with their stoic but failing leaders.

Truly, the current climate of World 48, fits this historical period almost perfectly.

The only thing I wish to know, is why did ASCN join Womble? They had much foresight, and well laid plans. Personally, I believe that Womble may have, indeed forced the issue. As I thought, Womble could not stay neutral in the ASCN v ElfW war. They could have done any of several things:

Threatened war should ASCN continue to fight against a loyal tribe that supports their backlines.

Or simply giving the ASCN leadership an offer they couldnt refuse. I can only speculate, but I believe Womble will soon go to war with -XIII-, to appease the now trapped ASCN players.

I will be interested to see where this goes, as both tribes have/had strong headed leadership. Will they be able to coexist under the same banner? Or will bad blood brew? This move could prove to be an excellent move on both parts, it could also prove to be the downfall.

Then again, I should have watched more closely when FitToWin transferred to ASCN some weeks ago. This could have been something in the works for quite some time.

Now, a special feature!
