With little activity on the forum for s4, I thought I'd try and create some with an early alliance analysis. It is day 30.
The analysis will focus on the largest 5 alliances ; RotA , GK , MARINES, ~BD~ and ~A~.
This quad is home to 3 of the top 5 largest alliances, named Global Knights (GK) , THE MEAN GREEN (MARINES) and Aliens(~A~).
GK has settled more to the boonies, whereas MARINES have stayed more localized bar a few players. ~A~ have also stayed within or relatively close to the quads outer reaches.
Some accounts of GK leak into neighboring quads.
This quad is primarily home to the top alliance, Riders of the Apocalypse (RotA).
This alliance has accounts settled within the bounds of the spawn area, as well as stretching out to the boonies.
There are also accounts in the NW and SE.
Finally, the alliance Breath of Death (~BD~) is mainly settled in the SE.
Again, some players have taken to the boonies, some stayed close to spawns.
Some accounts stretch into the sw.
The NW holds a few accounts from some of these alliances, mainly RotA. Not much else here.
Looking at account development, RotA appear to be in a favorable lead.
|Alliance||# Players||Avg. Pop||Avg. Villages||100% or better 15c secured (%)|
RotA also have more croppers with oasis secured, you can take my word for it .
Shoutout to Sleepover with 3 oasis taken, 150% bonus! Please teach us all.
12 of the top 20 pop players are also in RotA.
GK seem to have a slight edge over MARINES, with slightly better development stats across the board.
~A~ are in a good position overall. ~BD~ definitely look the weakest here.
RAIDING & ATTACKING:
|Alliance||Avg. Atk points||Last week raid rank||This week raid rank (current)|
RotA top these stats as well. MARINES perform stronger than GK even with less numbers. ~A~ show that they are a small but quality alliance. ~BD~ again show fairly weak stats.
Currently, the top 10 raiders is composed of 5 RotA players / 2 MARINES / 1 GK / 1 ~A~ / and 1 ~BD~ .
Defense ranking doesn't reveal much early on ,however it appears there have been some hits between GK and MARINES.
RotA appear to be current top dogs with strong control of the SW , and players extending into the NW and SE. They top most stats apart from defence with few attacks coming their way.
It will be interesting to see whether MARINES and GK battle all the way to artefacts and beyond or merge. We expect to see ~A~ causing them both some trouble up in the NE.
~BD~ may continue to hold up in the SE and eventually start getting hit by both the larger quads either side, or their top players may get taken into the other alliances.
Expect another analysis pre arte's.
