Overdue update, and also it is a random day rather than a fixed time period between updates since I can only do this when I'm not busy in game or at work
I have had to drop the raiding stats unfortunately, as i didn't keep all records up to date each week, and not all the alliances have ribbons for each week for me to check that way, which made the margin of error too great to include it.
* the average pop of RH is listed as 10 simply because I only looked at top ten, but it is in fact lower than this if smaller alliances were to be included.
The shrinkage of D&D is probably the biggest difference since the last lot of statistics, and the consolidation of both wings to one. Not shown in these statistics is the creation of ATOM at the expense of D&D. With Purge and D&D together, I was surprised to see such strong performance for Shannara, would be interesting to know if any fights with Shannara helped cause the drop in D&D's dominance (in numbers).
Elsewhere, it looks like RH are struggling since these statistics which were taken last night look out of date already, with RH losing members.
There are a number of interesting alliances who do not make it into the top 5 here in population, such as ATOM, ZZzzz and a few others, next time I'll try to include more alliances in the statistics.
