whats going on ... on UK3

  • Didn't fox win a server a couple of years back also Martin?
    Pipped TSL/TNC to the win I think, It did ruffle some feathers if I remember right. I would have thought everyone was over it by now.


    Yeah you're right, end of the day you don't need to be the best alliance in terms of military etc to win, sometimes a slice of luck and slipping under the radar is enough. Plus they did and still do have some solid players.

    Assuming that parts not directed at me since I've not really said anything on Fox lately, other than the above :).

    Looks like they have some really solid player this round to me ...


    Some of the MFH IGNs I recognise from years back. Where are you hiding MJ?

    You make it sound like fox won by themselves, surely that never happened. What happened to making sure everything is accurate?

    tormentor - As for replying to other posts, I really cannot stand the stench, even the nose plugs are not stopping it.


    listers losers - Does that mean youve taken off the gimp mask?

    Wasn't that Fox run by a completely different leadership though? Correct me if I'm wrong ofc - but I thought Roadrunnerx just used the Fox name for lols and it stuck.

  • You will see how quick THOR will fall off. I can not imagine people that is in top attacker, and nowhere in top farmer. And regarding that C15, you can move it to the imperium side now. Settling on grey will only provide limitations. especially going for c9 and not c15.


    I really liked your analysis, but there is too early to comment on a default winner.. NMS doesn't seem to be strong at the moment and the decisions regarding their croppers, that doesn't impress me much, but R.D on the other hand, they have a plus from my side.


    We shall see in time , how this will evolve.


  • The SE will unite under the Imperium name. The NMS is not looking that strong, actually RD is better from my perspective. Regarding THOR , they will implode due to lack of experience as their leaders have none.

  • Imperium should not be disconsidered in all this. it was the first ally that united the quadrant, 1st ally that settled and for sure, you will see them in the weekly tops.


    THOR should fall shortly , due to lack of experience.

    Does that mean im now considered to be experienced? :O ^^

  • THOR, beside being lame and sending messages to people to steal the memmers, and talking all day and doing nothing, they are no good. Only at being caught with the off at home

  • Well as everyone knows, I wouldn't normally comment on anyone else's alliance. Statistically though, Thor don't look too bad, and they don't seem to have felt the need to try and recruit a whole quad as yet. Unlike a certain ascii loving alliance who seem to have decided to promise a cross quad war in week two :x

    But without a large ASCII sword and 'Welcome Boards' how would we know how $oLiD they are?

  • I've always felt that you can tell a lot about an alliance front the way they have settled, for example lots of 9 croppers could suggest a high amount of defensive players or lots of 125/150 croppers could suggest more end game hammers. It's not a perfect science though so I will let you draw your own conclusions.


    Now that the first 3rd villages have popped up let's take a look at how alliance have done settling croppers.

    Assuming MFH & NMS both decide that making love not war is the best towards and that they would likely bring in sins, as they appear to be simming end game hammers out in the sticks then this is what the new alliance would have, whatever it would be called!

    That's a lot of 150 croppers! Fortunately for everyone else there is a rumour that MFH don't play well with others, I've also read some quite shocking things about them in another thread on this server....

    On sheer numbers alone it looks like the SW will end up firmly as THOR's controls. Rumour has it their leadership will fall apart long before the end of the server. Perhaps many of their players are expecting this and that is why they have settled in the NW? Of course if their players keep getting banned then it won't matter much at all.


    On the flip side they are primed to get their sim on and prepare for artefacts.

    Imperium have employed the age old tactic for quad domination, 'If it breathes, recruit it'. Nothing wrong with that of course but they really haven't pushed out and used the space they have in the quad. Loads of tasty 125% croppers within 150 squares of the centre. Why are they all grouped in at the middle? They seem dug in for a fight but there is no one left in their quad to fight? What are they planning?
