En58's Top Tribes
En58's Top Tribes
The Cult of Cookie [=C=]
Victory Points: 52
The Tribe that looks to be dominating every part of the core, largely uncontested apart from by BoB in the SW. It remains to be seen if they can keep this up and puff outwards or if they'll end up crumbling under the weight of the outer layers.
The Immortal Elite [IMO]
Victory Points: 61
A large and seemingly organized tribe that formed a big semi-circle on near eastern side of the map. Lots of room to grow, especially in the NE, but they have possible enemies on all sides so we'll see how they end up in a couple weeks. Also an open question to any IMO member that might see this: Was IME taken?
Forsaken Minotaurs [FMS]
Victory Points: 52
A tribe that's awkwardly stuck between =C= and IMO in the SE, and their High DBP suggests that they've been taking a significant beating as a result. But they have lots of room to grow in the NW, where a good number of their players have found their home. Should the SE fall, they could choose to restart in the NW. Either way though, tribes that end up with such a low OBP : DBP ratio early on rarely end up doing well.
Bad People [Bad]
Victory Points: 32
The highest ranked of the 3 top ten tribes all competing for the south-west, Bad seems to have gotten off to a pretty good start. They have by far the highest OBP and OBP : DBP ratio of the three (The others being BoB and ODK), but they don't look to have expanded much yet.
Borovicka old boys [BoB]
Victory Points: 18
While their name suggest experience, the BoB are stuck between a rock and a hard place that even experienced players would struggle in. Fighting for control of the SW core with =C=, and facing Bad in the rear, BoB are going to have to look for significant outside help if they want to win this fight. Their OBP : DBP ratio suggests that their duel with =C= is definitely not going in their favor.
Left Eye Gang [LEG]
Victory Points: 30
We're not at the point in the rankings where the tribes here have yet to reach the point where nobles are available, but I though that it might be fun to at least see where tribes 5-10 are positioned. The first of these then are LEG, which are spread along the N to NW. For future growth they'll likely have to contend with the northern parts of IMO, and their western contingent might run into conflict with FMS.
Victory Points: 16
Stuck in a similar position to BoB, but much weaker overall. NOW seems to be living up to their name, because it looks like they're going nowhere, fast. But perhaps they will surprise me.
Order of Dragon Knights [ODK]
Victory Points: 24
The last of the 3 competitors in the SW, and the ones we have seen the least of. Their inner members seem to have taken a slight beating by Bad, but that was to be expected considering their outnumbered nature. there are large places to the SSE that this tribe could easily expand to in the future, so we'll have to wait and see if they can give Bad a run for their money or not.
High Plains Drifters [HPD]
Victory Points: 17
A good OBP : DBP ratio and a strong position in the NW, which no other tribe is fully committed to. If they continue on this path they might kick out FMS and ROM and grow into a strong player in the area.
King Arthur's Court [KAC]
Victory Points: 40
Apparently having fled world 57 after their collapse, KAC is trying their luck here. Unfortunately, it's already not looking too great for them. 14 of their members don't have second vills yet/anymore, and they are spread all over the map apart from the NW. Still though, they have a semi-large cluster in the SE and being on the rim might yet bring good fortune to them.
In The Shadows (ITS): The rank 11 tribe with a good OBP : DBP ratio and players in the high 20s, spread out on the far east of the map and so far have very little competition in that area apart from perhaps KAC
Romans (ROS): A tribe with 20 members all clustered into mostly a single province in the North. Setups like these always make me wonder if multi-accounting is involved, but that would be making assumptions - we'd have to wait and see if their achievement times start lining up suspiciously.
There's not be much to say for most of the tribes as it's very early days yet. Still, I decided to post this anyway because I was was in the mood and it'll serve as a good reference point for how things will have developed in the future.
