      Day 20 Progress Report
      Dear mother and/or father,

      Your child, @@CHILDNAME@@ had an exceptionally boring day on US3. However, I will start a forum conversation if it's the last thing I do! (~The Burninator, 2018)

      Also, @@GENDERPRONOUN@@ wrote a garbage analysis of the server that belongs in the trash, even saying something ridiculous like "will be updated as the server progresses." What shenanigans? See below:

      SouthEast

      FrsWheel
      Player count: 49 [[Top 100 count: 25]]
      I recognize lots of these players and can attest to their quality. That pre-formed team looks to have an easy path to quad dominance -- there are some villages from TIPS to evict that should hopefully provide us with some reports, but given the quality and quantity on this side and the relative lack of competition, this looks like the team to beat. As such, they're being scored a 10/10, and all other teams are going to be scored based on how competitive I think they are against this standard. Note the high number of players in the top 100, and how many of those have decent 15c's creeping up in development...
      OUTLOOK: Alright, is your WW level 100 yet? [Score 10/10]

      NorthEast

      TIPS
      Player count: 35 [[Top 100 count: 16]]
      I am always confused when I see players with multiple villages who have yet to take a cropper, of which there are a few here. This team does look to be going for quality over quantity, and it will be interesting to see how the NE quad plays out given that this looks to be the most competitive quad, and since TIPS has villages in the SE and FrsWheel has villages in the NE.
      OUTLOOK: Contenders. [Score 8.5/10]

      CN
      Player count: 71 {2 wings} [[Top 100 count: 18]]
      With players straddling into the NW, there is much more of a mix of quality and quantity in here for sure. That said, there is a lot of quantity here. Again, it will be interesting to see how the NE plays out. CN looks to be outraiding TIPS, so I do fancy their chances up there. Looks like they backed up a bit further than TIPS to grab croppers, which indicates that TIPS players probably settled their caps earlier than CN by and large. Doesn't prove anything, especially since my unscientific random survey of CN players revealed a higher proportion of decent caps than my random sampling of TIPS players. (It's only day 20, I ain't countin' all of 'em at this stage, sorry.)
      OUTLOOK: Contenders. [Score 9/10]

      NorthWest

      CR
      Player count: 50 {3 wings} [[Top 100 count: 11]]
      Included in the NW because they do have an NW wing and players in the NW in their other wings. From what the NE looks like, I think they're at a disadvantage. They're looking pretty strong overall, though, so I hesitate to count them out. Caps look pretty good.
      OUTLOOK: Tryin' really hard, believing in themselves. [Score 7.5/10]

      Ghost
      Player count: 20 [[Top 100 count: 0]]
      Not worth discussion.
      OUTLOOK: USDA rated grade A foodstuffs. [Score 1/10]

      SouthWest

      701
      Player count: 36 [[Top 100 count: 4]]
      There are several players in here who look good, but the vast majority of this alliance looks a little like the Great Plains, if you catch my drift.
      OUTLOOK: Hazy, try again later. [Score 3/10]

      101st
      Player count: 36 [[Top 100 count: 3]]
      To be fair, there are several players in here who look very good. But again, the rest of the alliance could be Iowa as far as I can tell.
      OUTLOOK: Hazy, try again later. [Score 3/10]

      LK
      Player count: 20 [[Top 100 count: 14]]
      Quality over quantity. Obviously, anything I say here is biased, but if you look at caps and development per person, raid per person, etc., I'm sure you'll agree. There really aren't enough players here to be a contender with the alliances in the other quads, though. Enough to inflict a ton of damage, absolutely, but probably not enough to contend. I look forward to proving me wrong about that last bit, though.
      OUTLOOK: Tryin' really hard, believing in themselves. [Score 6/10]

      Summary:
      1) FrsWheel
      2) CN
      3) TIPS
      4) CR
      5) LK
      6+) Anything else

      Well, if you consider the source, and actually ask him if he's any good at this game then you would understand how much of a compliment it is to tell him he's close..!!

      I appreciate this message. I've worked hard at hiding odinloki, and I've done as well a job at that as I have with anything this round so far. Oops.

      I do feel slighted, even though we are in an alliance with one member and haven't done anything but screw up.

      Tell me, did you also spawn on this server? If so, why haven't you IGM'd me yet?

      And sorry for not responding before -- I was deciding how to deal with the question about a "fix" :p.

      I will be updating the analysis as the server progresses, so that will have to suffice. I went for anyone in the top 10 this time 'round, maybe next time I'll just include my favorites. That way, everyone knows who my favorites are ;)

      Don't worry. We are currently recruiting spies. Only the best of the best Spies though. I had to reject Odin already.
      I give you all the infos. CN3 is weak and lacks leadership.

      All of the other talk and these familiar names has scared the southeast. We have decided to become CN's third wing. We are now known as CN3. We believe that this meta will allow us to win the server - it was the only way.
