At time of writing this, it is day 11, and we currently see over 4600 players registered, many players succeeded in settling village 2, some are very close to settling village 3, first few CP helmets got sold for over 800k silver and we can notice at least 5 pretty well organized teams, preparing to start the show of what is COM1 2019.
The usual suspects, that will be the powerhouses (in my point of view so far) are
>> SGR (NE quad),
>> TEN (SE quad),
>> VICES (a.k.a. Villains or whatever name they want to call themselves are once again in NW and partially in SW borders),
>> Lowlands (SW),
and some underdogs that only time will tell, what they will do, if they are here to also stay or not such as >> C9 (and their subally C9A - in SE).
I assume Mayhem, Brave, Dark, NTS and Guard! will also join up with Lowlands sooner or later, to unify SW quad.(as you can see in link of SW map above).
Looking at numbers, one can see that:
North East is organized in around: 196 accounts (not necessarily all allied)
South East is organized to date in around: 193 accounts (not necessarily all allied)
North West is organized in: 253 accounts (all under VICE tag)
South West is organized in: 196 accounts (not necessarily all allied)
this sums up to around 830 accounts, so I have no idea what the other 3800 accounts are up to... IYKWIM.(how many are multies, tech accounts, travian generated accounts, newbies, loner players and so on.)
As for Leadership, I will suggest that each announce who is who, in terms of leadership, in corresponding alliances.
fun fact of top 10 also *no comment on it from me*:
