With 327,620 points and 44 villages the account is 5th in the players ranking loosing only to Tudadar, TreX, King Banana and King Silvia. Normally I would give 10/10 but those 8 recent barbarian captures are a little bit disappointing.
I have mixed feelings here. 510,433 ODA puts HardNutz 23rd in the ranking. The ODA is a little bit low for 43 captured villages but then 8 of those were barbarians and 5 internals. For the account located in the core, morale is less of a factor for having low ODA which means HardNutz pics his targets well. He is farming over 3,000,000 resources per day at the moment while nobling 3-4 villages daily (in the last 4 days). So again he uses his troops very well.
818,993 ODD is amazing for an offensive top 5 player. He is supporting his tribe well and probably has been hit hard few times by Fal.
HardNutz has been positioned in the core of K44. There were good growth options so far but that might change soon. Once Falcon and Vex are mopped up the growth will be limited to few remaining barbs, BIP or WZAP.
Hitting STAND in the north could also be an option but I don't thing those villages will stay available for too long. Ultimately his growth will depend on how well BIP and WZAP are doing. If they stay organised and hold HardNutz will be locked up. If they fail he can go after a lot of 9k villages and grow very nicely.
The tank is all right but Mike Tyson and his hand movement is a no no for me.
I had a pleasure playing with Farm Rat recently and he is hell of a player, solid, respectful, mature and trustworthy. I am not sure if he is that well known in the community, I hope we hear about him a lot more in the future.
ANTZ, people complain about Kirk and his tribes every time he leads. He maybe plays and fails the same way every time but hats off for his perseverance. He clearly loves the game, brings the same people with him every world, and it is good for everyone to have them around. ANTZ are doing quite all right this time round. However their loyalty to Kirk might get tested soon. If their big neighbour decides to offer some spots to the top accounts under threat how would they react? It is a common strategy for bigger tribes so it could certainly happen to ANTZ. Knowing Kirk's diplomatic style he would rather ally such tribe keeping his team together. So I predict ANTZ allying with TEA rather soon.
Other: Hope Farm Rat is not mad at me anymore for screwing up things on W88.
