    Default Server Analysis 5/12

    **NOTE: I tried to be as unbiased as I could as Yes I am a member of one of the alliances on the server. Also most of the comment section are my own opinions as for the most part I lack information on the respective alliances (you guys could help this out by posting on the forums a wee bit and starting some good ole forum fights ) Don't be harsh guys its been years since I have done one of these things **

    Comments: Infamous returns to travian after their hard fought win on s8. This well established power house alliance has been fairly quiet so far this server but that might be due to the lack of any viable competition in their own quad and it being relatively early in the server. ROCK is the only other major alliance in the NW and with their wings being spread across the server it is not likely they will stand long should infamous take notice of them. If statistics really do mean anything then the fact that Infamous' membership dominates the top 100 players (holding 31/100 spots) indicates they are no joke.

    Comments: I do not know much about this group but based on actions and rankings alone I would rank Mayhem right up there with infamous in terms of the top 2 alliances on the server. Coming from the merger of Oi and PaD they have at least shown the rest of the server that they are able to organize their own quad and most likely have long term goals outside of the NE. Bar ROCK, Mayhem has essentially consolidated their quad and is now able to focus on the upcoming arti releases without facing a conflict that could potentially weaken their power base in the NE. Like infamous it is highly doubtful that ROCK would offer a significant threat should Mayhem turn their focus on them. They currently have 24 members in the top 100 putting them right behind Infamous.

    Comments: The first of three 1 wing alliances this analysis touches upon. Lust in recent weeks has shed all except its main wing and currently shares the SW with at least 3 other large alliances. In terms of endgame having 1 wing will not work if they intend to win the WW race or at least be competitive. That however may not be their goal at all. History has shown that 1 wing alliances can play a large factor in endgames by supporting larger metas. Is this Lust's intention? Only time will tell. Lust's more immediate goals should be securing their position in the SW as they are heavily outnumbered by the other southwestern alliances. Perhaps Lust will be the strong group that unites the quad? Or the group that shatters it and brings civil war ?

    Comments: The largest of the SW alliances. They do not seem to be all that organized which can be seen in the varying alliance descriptions each different wing uses. And statistically they are not blowing anyone out of the water. The only thing this group seems to be going for them is numbers (as we all know numbers dont mean much though). They lack the cohesion of most of the other alliances and this can clearly be seen.

    Comments: The final SW alliance this analysis touches on. This alliance looks to be the remnants of the Persian teams that were initially having a strong showing on the server. In my experience most national groups that come to international servers tend to merge into larger alliances. This remains to be seen if they will go this route or not.

    Comments: Server 2's former resident powerhouse alliance. Tales of MDS dominating s2 are long past and it really remains to be seen if this current incarnation will mirror last s2's disappointing MDS or if rumors are true and old MDS leadership has returned to bring their alliance to its former glory. As it stands now MDS is not looking too impressive. With 6 wings they are the second largest alliance on the server totaling 225 members with rumored connections to multiple other alliances. For a comparison see ROCK below which spans across multiple quads. It is yet to be seen if MDS will re-organize on a geographic basis ridding themselves of some of the excess wings.

    Comments: The only other entirely SE based group. Its surprising to me at least that they have held on this long as a cohesive group and could even be giving MDS trouble (not likely though). It will be interesting to see if they continue to remain a separate entity from MDS or fold into them at some point. The latter of the two would be beneficial except that MDS already has 225 members. An added 100 will put them neck and neck with ROCK for the Zerg Meta award and could cause a potential hug fest in their quad which has turned out very bad for some alliances in the past.

    Comments: The servers resident Zerg meta ( Come on guys you set yourself up for this title 7 wings/ 330+ members??) and largest by far almost doubling the size of the next largest alliance. Stats wise on the surface ROCK looks great, but when a deeper look is taken it makes sense that their stats rival some of the other metas. Being spread across the server this makes them a target for every alliance that wants them out of their respective quads. They seem to be trying to organize (can be seen with the attempts at a uniform alliance description across their wings) but this will become harder as the server progresses and other alliances begin to press them. I see ROCK going the route of all the Zerg alliances, either collapsing under their own weight or their members/ wings joining the established alliances in their respective quads.

    Nice work. I enjoyed the reading.

    My guess would be that Rock starts to crumble as more and more players develop catapults and start cleaning up their area. Lots of people are thrilled to be in a "dominant" group until those numbers seemingly can't prevent you from watching your village get taken apart piece by piece. It's almost as if someone told their "leadership" that a prize existed for reaching 400 accounts. Quality must become a standard at some point!

    It's my first server on this domain, so I'll be interested in seeing how things play out. Thanks for the time you put in on the write-up.

    Excellent write-up. It could just be because I am tired, but I couldn't tell which alliance you are in from the post, so well-done on writing without bias!

    Perhaps I can do a monthly one. Things dont usually change too much from week to week to warrant a full analysis. Me doing them depends entirely on you guys though. And what I mean by that is if you guys make these forums active and give me a reason to spend the time to write one up I will.

    Yeah, this place has been a ghost town so far, for the most part. I have been pretty surprised at the lack of activity here. Maybe the smack talk will pick up as catapult count increases.

    It would be great if there were some alliance reps around to have a say. The SW and the NE look like they are going to be the most interesting in early game. What are relations like between Rock and Mayhem?

    Finally some activity on the forum,
    nice job TheSeid,
    again, no idea here which alliance you hale from.

    a monthly analysis would be appreciated,
    maybe another 'poster' would care to make their own analysis in the off fortnight,
    there seems to be enough talent on his server for someone else to step up to the job.

    looking forward to a few more taunts & speculation in the forum, been a little dull to date.
    normally MDS has inflamed the forum by now, maybe the effort from the previous ts2 has left a bitter taste.
