I made a map to help see where the large groups are. Thanks to Blitzkrieger for the overview of groups!
Apologies for the villages being a bit big and sitting on top of each other. I used to use a mapping tool which made each village one pixel and looked much better - does anyone happen to know whether that still exists?
Of course, I don't really know what's going on. Here's my analysis anyway:
GoW (GoW, Gow. and Gow..)
Loads of them near me on the map, so I should probably say something nice. They seem a bit antisocial though.
Duat (Duat, NoSpies and Strange)
They like being near the centre of the map. Probably, they fancy their chances of winning the game.
WoW (WoW and WoW II)
Wow don't like being in the middle quite as much as Duat. They have a really silly name - 'Wonders of the World' is setting the bar a bit high. No way can they live up to that.
A late entry, only formed today. Clearly the best alliance there is. Don't bother asking to join.
GUNNERS (Goofers, GUNN3RS, GUNNERS and GUNNERZ)
They have the earliest formed alliances (numbers 2, 12 and 36, excluding Goofers). Perhaps they are just well organised?
DND (DND and DSD)
Most likely scared of the GUNNERS. They are running away and hiding.
NE (NE, +NE and NE+)
Has to be the least original name ever.
GOATS (Goatters, GOATS and GOATZ)
Big goaty heads - think they're better than everyone else.
Will they survive??
TEN (TEN - AD, TEN Y, TEN X and TEN-TSE
Why is the SE always the most boring quad?
2.01 (2.01-X and 2.01-A)
Can someone tell me who these people are? They might want to join Bubbles and move to the NW? I guess they would be disappointed if they asked.
