Crunch's early "Analysis" thread

  • Disclaimers;
    1) All information was accurate at the time of gathering it, it's early doors,
    2) If you feel this thread hasn't insulted you sufficiently then please contact me in PM and I shall arrange further insults.

    This is more of a look at who is here, where they have settled and how they compare statistically rather than a full on analysis.

    Let's get started then.

    The North East (that's +/+ for the dumb ones)

    I know absolutely nothing about these guys, their leader chose to ignore me (what a ...)

    They appear to think killing rats is more important than settling. Maybe they are only here to clear oasis for other people ....

    In summary, they are completely irrelevant.

    Whilst many consider AA the Ronaldo of the UK domain these guys are surely the Messi.

    The Hall of Fame is littered with their achievements over their many years playing. Of course like Messi they may not be at their best anymore but i still fully expect to see these guys fighting for the win.

    Drawn a bit of a unlucky hand having the ,,,

    Their leader also has awful taste in football teams so thats an extra point deducted from them.

    I don't think there is anything I can say about this alliance that hasn't been said 100 times over in every alliances general chat.

    Heavy grey zone presence and yet moved out to the sticks too. Spread too thin perhaps?

    They also seem to have settled towards the NorthWest side of the quad. I wonder if there is a specific reason for that. :whistling:

    The traditional UK punching bags are back for another round too. Perhaps there has been a change of leadership though as they have forgotten to put the little squiggly line things either side of their name.

    Good to see them turning up and giving it a shot but I don't think they will have much hope with Pulse and Bifrost in their quad.

    Russians being Russians.

    Here to conquer all the Russians will be looking for the win in this one.

    Having seen the likes of AA in full force on a number of occasions however they know it will not be easy.

    Anyone else wondering why they are bothering to pretend there is only 30 of them?

    Ran by a 13 year old Vietnamese girl called Johnny this alliance has elected to move out to the sticks, presumably not planning on taking on WW and playing smashy/kingmaker.

    Rumour has it they beat someone who bought a glad helmet for over 1m silver to a cropper, LMFAO.

    For that feat alone they one of my favourite teams on the server so far.

    The Aussies finally make an appearance on the merged domain teaming up with the yanks.

    Staying central and focusing on the WW area this looks like a team that is in it to win it. With cereals and 1776 in their quad it won't be easy though.

    I'm calling it now, they'll team up with 1776 before long but they will fall out before the server ends :p

    Aptly named after the last time America turned up to a war on time this team has come to us from the US servers, where they publicly recruited on the forums (what could possibly go wrong right).

    Bringing with them a bit of a reputation for mischief the yanks are sure to be a huge factor in how this server ends up.

    Hopefully for them they will fair better against Johnny than the last time they want against Vietnam.

    Named after a war the Americans started because of 3 issues then sued for peace without solving any of those issues yet somehow think they won.

    Opting for quantity over quality this team has their work cut out for them.

    However, with AA and Rebel considering each other the bigger threat Camelot has some freedom to grow unmolested.

    They appear to be staying central, surely they don't think they can take the -50/-50 WW away from AA?!?!

    As this is the team I am playing with I will be overly critical in an attempt to not be Bias.

    This is by far the best alliance in the world, ever.

    They also have the world's most handsome travian player, ever.

    Making their intentions known early on, AA have sacrificed cropper bonuses for WW distance.

    A few of their players appear to have not got the memo though and have found themselves surrounded in no man's land. I'm sure they will be fine.....

    Favourites for many to win the server it certainly won;t be easy to achieve with REBEL & Camelot in their quad.

    Uh oh...

    In summary;

    The Russians have a whole quad to enjoy, they will be a huge factor. Whether they decide to attack downwards or tot he right will have a massive impact on how the server plays out.

    Neither AA/Rebel or Bifrost/Pulse want to worry about fighting the Russians whilst at war with each other. Though if either of those 2 sets of players be chickens and team up the Russians could find themselves in a bit of trouble.

    The SE looks like fun too, but they will almost definitely all team up.

    Rebel, AA, Pulse, Bifrost, Olympia, 1776 & Yikes all look like potential winners whilst a few teams will have a say on who they want to help win (or not win)

    See you all at artefacts for a more in depth "analysis" when every one has META'd up.

    P.S. Blame V-Bra for the font.

  • 1812 and 1776 are the same alliance. Figured I'd put that out there because you grouped up some but not others.

    To be honest, I think we have some strong english speaking bias on this forum. Unless AA has a lot more players, the Russians are the easy favorites.

  • The Russians being Russians and the Russians pretending to be Russians (as crunch said) are clear favourites for me. Simming away in the NW if they so please, there has to be some top WWK coming out of there with a load of pushing behind them.

    I’d genuinely be surprised if AA even come close in the end. Might be all out war in the SW for a long time :thumbup:
