The server is over and Whack took the W, helped by our allies in Forsaken. GGWP, not ez, glad it`s over.
I will do allystuff first:
The plan to make a new (mostly norwegian) ally came to me during nordicx 4. I had become leader halfway in the server in Nordicx1, and we were 100% not prepared for what Nordicx was going to look like, compared to Nox. So i wanted to give it a shot, with me leading from the start, and better prepared (meaning more endgame oriented). I reached out to the norwegians i knew, and most of them joined in. We also ended up recruiting some "friends of friends" and doing some initial recruiting after the server began. The first lesson learned from Nordicx1 was that we needed more WWRKs, and that our more trusted members needed to build them, with some of them building big deff as well (HCIM had WWR + 2 mill, Fenris Wolf had WWK + almost 2 mill and Icento had 2 WWKs + 900k). This meant that all our most trusted, most active and most experienced players was going WWRK and/or deff, and that our war-hammers were going to be less certain to accomplish something.
Jakee approached me and said he wanted to run a tight, small ally to do deff + opsing, and they were going to be a large part of our "opsing-muscle". However, when i was busy for one day because of arti-coordination and he started getting incs he chickened out, and went to D-Tytöt instead. This meant that we had enemies in our own quad, with a lot of warhammers, and we had a lot of accounts yet to boom because they went high cropfields early on. We needed an ally, and Forsaken had been waring with D-Tytöt, was in our neighbouring quad, and would give us more origo firepower. We also made a NAP with O.K, but this was just formalizing what both allys already knew: D-Tytöt + KYR-12 was opsing against us, and none of us could stand a two front war at this point. As it turned out, the KYR-swap was a solo-move by their leader, and a contradiction of the server goals for a lot of his members, so 10 (?) of their members went jumped to our ship, while the remaining members splatted 4 good warhammers at Theogonien. This caused some public outrage that imo was not really warranted. We were still going to be the main target of O.K, while having to take down 2 (maybe 3) WWs, while taking all the D-T ops. We had like 20-25% more pop than D-T but they raided between 2 and 4 times as mutch as us + Forsaken put together. Plus managing a smaller, tighter group has advantages over a larger, not premade meta. Some D-T members might have thought we would cooperate with WW as well, but ofc we was not.
From this point forward it was "Opsorama" from D-Tytöt. Junnu has already displayed the results in a rather fabolous manner, but i can still comment on on them. It was absolute hell, and part of that is me failing to delegate responsibillity in a more clear fashion, and beeing a bit too mutch of a control freak. 15+ ops from D-Tytöt and 1 (?) from O.K was a lot to handle, especially towards my exam period. With the advantage of knowing the results now, it would be better to have walls everywhere, without beeing able to stop anything. When we lost Snullefar WWK it was because we had deff enough to every WWRK except one or two (I also count Slappfisks mega ops hammer as "WWRK here"), and they hit it. Same situation when The World lost their WWK, and Slappfisk lost their warhammer. Icento lost his second WWK in the last wave, and only 2-3k more deff would have saved it. So in the end, a lot of work, with not a lot to show for it. This server would have been more chill, boring and decisive with earlier sucess. Good job on their part, both in training and launching (screwing around with TS lvls and having scoutwalls). Only bigish mistake you made in my mind was not going for WW at the same time that you went for Icento. I think we had lvl 84 WW at that point, but with 10-11 mill deff standing in walls instead of WW i think it would have been worth it. Oh, O.K was splatted on the first try.
This server was not really for us to win, with the ops against us. We were set to survive losing 1-2 WWKs, but any ally will have troubble winning when they lose 4. We had planed to WWR + 2 WWKs because we had 4+8, but this changed it, and we ended splitting up Dr. Destruction and HCIM BTW WWRs (both made close to 600k + 130k + 60k), to go another round. We knew we had to take down both D-Tytöt and O.K, but then the servers largest WWK went towards O.K instead of us. And then the dumpsterfire on a horse-corpse called Wesley Snipes happened. Jesus christ, what a not-cash money thing to do, against his own member. That guy was in his fullest right to attack us, and you stole his hard work through the server, probably to gain more off-points as well. Shame on you. After this even a big WWK won`t do enough damage against a lvl 98 WW with wall still up and 19 million deff there.
I am proud that my ally kept their head up and keept fighting. So in the end we won becuause the puzzle went our way, we had many (but not the largest) WWRKs and we had big deff. GG, 10/10 would not do again.
Big thanks to:
Ketil, for making sure we still had an account to save after i spent most of late midgame having a lot of syre from deff-coord stuff.
Our deff-builders, who moved deff from fake to fake, untill finally hitting some offensive troops.
Our WWRK builders, who had a decent chance to loosing their servers work 15-20 times, and sat up late to feed walls/return deff.
Jomar, Altakraaka, and Trabby for helping me out with deff-coordination.
Forsaken for doing more than you can expect from an ally that had been fighting a good opontent and taking some hard hits.
Gustav, Tobias, Fillip and Eivinn for helping out with sitting, either my acc or WW.
Heimdall for doing WW-support work, and moving deff perfectly.
Henrik for the memes
Junnu for some nice chats lategame, and deciding to go for the win, instead of beeing the "spoiler candidate".
I was really up to do whatever we needed. It turned out we were missing a few WWKs, so i went for two. I was going to play with Ketil, JC and Ceaser, but the latter two had too mutch real life stuff to do, so it ended up beeing me and Ketil, pluss some sitterwork from Tobias on Slappfisk. The account was decent, but not as good as i had hoped. Too mutch allystuff to do, and only one dual (but huge ups to Ketil, who put in a huge amount of raiding/simming hours). Started lateish with trainer and had to use a lot of fool when we lost our 2nd trainer. Also late GB/GS. Anyway:
