It is going to be a very weird server, Vices and TEN are not playing this round, so plenty of rooms for new groups. And apparently something new is coming. One meta choses to not focus on single quads, but prefer to build a Northern group.
AD map NW and NE
=AD= they have two wing, one in NW and on in NE (101 accounts), they settled relatively close to the NE/W border. Roughly 1/3 of their player settled village 2.
Rumors has it that they are already napped with WR (no clue if it is true); rumors has it that they are talking with SGR for end game (again no clue if it is true)
Vices/VIllains/Vinci are not playing this round, so the quad is open.
=AD= chose to stay close to the border, but they are definetly the biggest group of the quad
Tok is a small group, who spawned in SE and who are moving in the empy quad (wise choice). 14 account
The Core, 24 account, none of them settled v2.
FF, 23 accounts, few of them settled v2.
WR, 67 account roughly half of them settled village 2. They have a core premade (so at least they wrote in forum) plus some recruitement. They spawned both NW, SW than SE but now seems settling SW.
X 80 account, according their alliance description they spawned 48hrs late, only 10 out of 80 already settled and they seems to prefer villages closer to their spawn not hurrying for croppers.
USSR premade alliance, seems pretty organized, 42 out of their 60 account settled their v2.
PWR 54 player, 10 settled. They are recruiting from the map
WiNeRsS 22 player only 1 of them settled
SGR over 150 account at least the official ones (I included All Bs cause they leader last round was one of SGR WWK). Premade, usually plays com1. They probably have some player outside the alliance atm that will join later on. They should be the absolute favourite of the round, rumors has it that they are talking with AD regarding build WW on 0|100 togheter (no clue if it is true or just a fake :D) They tend to do a lot of diplomacy usually, this round it doesnt seems necessary, will we see SGR playing alone?
Cousins 29 player, mostly trolls they are obvioulsy here to mess up with SGR. 21 out of 29 settled in a area close to 100|100 WW.
Pepega, 57 players, "no normies allowed", seems settling scattered around the server. At least one of their player is a SGR one
Regarding croppers in a radius of 100 tiles from 00, USSR seems to be the group who secured most with 5 125+ croppers settled, SGR and Cousins settled 4 each
