The Unofficial Blog For World 75

BGeorge3

Still Going Strong
After Ali went MIA, Angelo was going to help, but quickly found out he wouldn't be able to. Then Sam of Two Nerds One Account was going to work with me, but was also busy. My increased activity in my other worlds and I focused more on other things in r.l. I had actually done interviews with a few people, and was waiting on Sam to do his section so the blog could get posted, however, in the process of waiting a long time for his section, the intervtiew mails got deleted because I didn't have premium (I didn't have premium from about the time I gifted my villages), and I had no backups of the interviews. So eventually this thread just died off. :(

So here goes the first blog. In edition one I will attempt to take a look into the Top 5 tribes, with interviews from as many that would talk to me. For those that didn’t I will fill in the gaps with the hearsay and guess work done from reading the externals and my sneaky detective work (a.k.a searching for them on TW Stats.) George has kindly agreed to help out and he will be covering tribes 6-10 in the rankings (as of 14/07/2014) when we started writing this.

First off a quick note about us authors, Ali will write in black and George will write in blue to help make the works distinct.

So the back story of Ali; I have been around since World 15 although with some substantial breaks. A few of the tribes I have been involved in have won worlds, but you would probably be justified if you decided to call me a busy body with very limited actual skill. I'm BGeorge3. I've been on many worlds under various names. I started playing tribalwars back in early 2008 (In that time, I had about a two and a half year break which happened about a year after starting Tribalwars. I came back when w56 opened). I've won a couple worlds, plan to win a couple more.

We decided that for our first edition, the best way to find out about the tribes was in what the leadership (or pool boy) had to say about themselves. From our very professional line of questioning, we have been able to extrapolate the views and positions of the tribes and their leadership. For continuities sake we asked 5 questions to each tribe, and then asked 3 custom questions as well, so as to give some diversity, and to delve into what people might want to know about the goliaths of our world.

So without further ado, here is what the interviews turned up:
[SPOIL]

333
333 currently occupy the number one spot (They have been in a constant state of competition for the title during the writing of this with Arrow). People do not seem to know much about them, but xXAcidGodXx very kindly agreed to answer some questions. So first off, who is AcidGod? The answer to this is actually quite scary. He gave an answer which can be found in the spoiler with his full interview below, however I have played in a world with him before and I would like to share my memories of him. Back on world 15 he was the leader of tribes which were wrecking half the world; eventually he left due to personal reasons, however before he did leave he left a lasting impression on the world. If we exclude his personality as that serves little purpose, he was an excellent co-ordinator of an already aggressive tribe, he was brutal in his diplomacy, if anyone ever crossed him they faced total annihilation and he was an extremely admirable leader. From my personal experience therefore, he is not a leader to be trifled with. When I read his replies to the questions of his tribes aims and his personal commitment to this world I nearly had a little accident in my pants. 333 should not be under-estimated for its potential, because with a leader like Acid God at the helm, they will not go down without taking a hell of a lot of people with them.

Now onto the tribe itself, not a premade, but an amalgamation of the strongest members from a number of weaker tribes, 333 is a result of chance rather than a pre-ordained strategic plan. With AcidGod’s outspoken opinions on family tribes, I do not think we will be seeing a family tribe associated with them anytime soon, although Norse are, according to 333, their official academy. Which brings me onto my next observation; it seems that although a serious tribe, 333 has a sense of humour. When asked how he named his tribe he admitted to a ‘google search’, at least he was being honest! From my interview and conversation with AcidGod I got the very distinct impression that 333 were an extremely serious tribe who had a sense of humour.

So how would I sum up my interview and thoughts on 333, well I would say I am scared of them and I am very glad I do not have to face off with them anytime soon. For all those in k45 and 55, I do not envy the position you are in. Hell I would say run for the hills. My prediction, keep an eye on these guys as they will probably pull off some big things in the not so distant future.

Arrow/Hood
When it came to Arrow/Hood, I had the pleasure of talking with Elipidus. Obviously a smart individual, he had a wonderfully pleasant manner and was very happy to indulge my journalistic delusions. When I contacted his tribe he was sitting Ride.Or.Die and so I stupidly thought he was the owner of the account. Elipidus’s answers were brilliant and imbued with a sense of fun. Being the largest Family tribe in the top 10, I obviously had to ask why, and if he had any reaction to the criticism they have received on the externals. His arguments were not unlike most other family tribe proponents, and do contain some logic. I will not comment on the family tribe decision, because I have played in families and so do understand where Elipidus is coming from.

A point that is raised from the interview is that despite all the talk of many of the tribes on the externals, Arrow/Hood have actually destroyed opposition who have opposed them. They are also in the process of securing their position, and have remained towards the top of the rankings for the entire time I have been in this world (not that long admittedly). It would seem they are interested in victory in this world, and they do have some names who would be capable of carrying out this goal. They seem switched on to who is impressive outside of their tribe, and who they can destroy without much competition. They seem to have many positives, and if they can co-ordinate their members well they will be a force to be reckoned with.

How would I sum them up, they remind me of a lot of tribes I have met over a number of worlds; a bunch of players banded together by circumstance, who are here to win but have no noticeable prior experience working together. They might win, they might not, but it will be worth watching either way.

Norse
Norse is a very interesting tribe to talk to. The co’s of Dreamsweaper are extremely pleasant to talk to, and from what I can tell Jake has a brilliant sense of humour. The history of the tribe as told by its Duke makes for an interesting read. It would seem that two proficient players decided to go into a premade together and using themselves as lynch pins brought together two tight nit circles of friends into one and made a small but impressive tribe. Perhaps the nature of the newly established relationship between the co-dukes might make for tension should something ever divide them, and perhaps, as so often happens when tribes are formed in a similar fashion, the tribe will split back into its separated two core sections.

Whether or not the leadership reaches any internal conflict, Norse does have a pretty impressive roaster of players. For those who are not familiar with many of them, I would suggest a quick TW Stats search of their histories. I can also vouch in so much as a few of those players I would not like to have to face up against, but that’s probably because I am a lazy coward. As part of my questions to Jake, I asked him to give some titles to some of his members so as to give those who do not know the players of Norse intimately an insight into their personalities, and also their sense of humour; the results were as follows:



A sense of fun and light heartedness seems to exude from Jake as well as the Norse tribe in general (going from my personal knowledge of some of the players). Upon being asked what the tribes goals were, he linked me to Lil Wayne - Drop The World ft. Eminem. However due to the rules, I cannot post this link so, for the sake of a point I included the sentiment, however I will not break rules and Jake asked me not too also.

So what would my assessment of Norse be from my interview with the Duke and all round light hearted Jake be? Well, underneath the light hearted banter rich environment that I am sure exists in Norse, it was very clear from some of Jakes answers that the tribe had a more serious side, which was of a highly organised, veteran group who have high growth targets, and even higher recruitment standards. I would liken them to the scariest force I can think of click here to understand. Would I go as far as to say Norse is unbeatable? The answer could only be no, gangbangs can always take down a star, and as the saying goes 9 out of 10 participants enjoy a gangbang. (I do not condone gangbangs, just saying)

FUBAR
Who are FUBAR? Well, the second largest Family in our little world, they came across during their interview as perhaps being the least serious tribe interviewed by myself. Where the others interviewed claimed their tribes goals to be around total world domination (a fairly logical goal if you ask me) FUBAR seem to be here for the ride. Perhaps it’s not a bad reason to play, this is a game and coming here to meet new people and have should not be laughed at; that said it’s hard to justify a 12 hour night stint of tagging just for the funsies.

Tribe goals aside, they do contain a large number of members and should LOOK be able to co-ordinate and get them all pulling in the same direction, they could at the very least ruin someone’s day. LOOK seemed like a reasonable enough chap who is obviously here to enjoy the game and have fun with a group of friends recently made, a very admirable reason to be here. With a favourable location they might survive a little while longer, but perhaps without the serious nature of some of the other tribes in the Top 5, they might struggle in a real war.

How would I sum up this tribe then? Well my explanation would be that they are my least likely candidates for victory, but perhaps might enjoy some of the more interesting forums/skype rooms and general debauchery. I would not write them off too early either as I have seen tribes in the same situation wander through worlds and make it to the end game with different players playing the accounts in the ultra lategame phase and making a once docile giant into a honed war machine.

@Night
@Night poses an interesting enigma for the onlooker. They have kept their presence remarkably quiet, something which Mintcream (the tribes press officer) seemed remarkably pleased about. They have an elite core who have ventured of a fringe server (for all us .net players know this is the best/toughest server to play on) and want to prove that the other servers are not as bad as we may think. This is not to say they haven’t recruited outside of the initial premade core, and have tried to increase their presence in the North East of our primitive world.

So onto my point of contact, Mintcream. He never divulged his exact position, but it was made to clear to me that he was the press officer and that us journalists were allowed to look at @Night, but certain topics were explicably off limits. This is no bad sign, actually in my humble opinion I would suggest this shows a keen strategy. The less we know about @Night, the harder it is to judge them, and make plans concerning them where diplomacy is concerned. The plot surrounding this mysterious tribe also thickened when it was revealed that they do have some hidden ace’s up their sleeves, but that these aces were under alias’s and we will not discover their true nature until they make their move. Despite his mysterious exterior he was a pleasure to talk to and very kindly answered my questions wherever he could. What was also apparent was his determination to win, a factor that must never be underestimated in this game. Those who truly want victory, and are not here for the giggles are far more likely to pull the crazy 24 hour faking sprees and the mad man sniping trains with scouts.

So from my interview with the tribe, my assessment would be as follows. I would liken @Night to North Korea, we can speculate all we like about what is going on behind their iron curtain, but until they make a move we will not know. Perhaps they have a stock pile of atomic weaponry, or maybe they will be using spear nukes to clear the world. Until someone actually confronts this tribe, they will remain an interesting enigma, and perhaps could be considered the dark horse among the top 5 tribes.

(Just to clarify, I am not saying @Night treats their members badly or infringes human rights in any way shape or form, my comparison is in terms of the secrecy and lack of knowledge we as foreigners truly have about North Korea beyond Fox News speculation, or for the British here the Daily Mail ranting’s.)

I would like to say a huge thank you to all those who talked to me and indulged my questions, annoying manner and lack of any real knowledge about this world. A big shout out to all my interviewees who were pleasant and fun to talk with. Hopefully they will be up for talking to me again in future additions. All the questions and answers can be found in the spoilers below. Do read them as there is far more content and make for interesting reading.
[/SPOIL]
Interviews 1-5
[SPOIL]

Arrow/Hood
[SPOIL]
1. Could you give a brief overview of your tribes history? (ie. Premades, accidentally found one another,freak event of nature, miss-spelled porn hub and ended up here, etc etc)

A brief overview of our history... hmm. Well, basically what happened was that we joined the world and in order to complete the "Join a tribe" quest.. we accepted a mass recruiters invitation. The tribe was being run by Lord catastrophic at the time.. no idea who he was. After a couple of days we discovered that in this twinkie of a tribe there was a creamy nougat of good players from various worlds. Ride, Crazy14U, Johnny (4th base), Rising etc.

Anyway we turned the tribes completely around, booted almost all of the original members and cycled through the normal play for a week and quit base that all of us poor souls must do if you havent made a premade...Leading to our terrible tribe change record. We then warred the number one tribe (both in public opinion and points) APES and after a quick victory we quickly moved on to NORD, recently Empire and now J-O in our quest to capture the K. :p


2. If you were to describe your tribes goals in one sentence, what would they be?

To sum up our tribes goals in one sentence is pretty easy since there is definitely a bottom line to TW.: "Try to take over the world, Pinky." -Brain

3. So Elpidius (aka.RIDE.OR.DIE)you have a bit of public attention through your nobling methods, do you have anything to say to the accusations of being the king of internals?

I am not actually Ride.Or.Die I just happened to be sitting his account when you asked if we would like to be interviewed. His internal nobling is well known, even we give him some flack for it. But truly it is not his fault. He just happens to be the only Player in his little corner, so when people in that corner quit, he ended up taking them as he was closest. Not because he is the almighty Ride that we pay tribute to with human and village sacrifice lest he kill us all :x

4. Sorry to keep this planted on you, but its nice to have the number one player in an interview. Your growth is pretty impressive, would you be able to divulge your secrets of excellence to us lesser beings?

N.A

5. ARROW/HOOD has attracted criticism for being a family tribe. As the head honcho, have you got any words for the haters?

We did get a bit of the normal "Oh gawd its a family tribe they suck no matter what they do" opinions thrown at us, but really that has just become the fashion. Half of the players saying that dont even know why they say it as they never played the big Family worlds. We just figured that in the end 35 members is nowhere near enough to solidify a win without great diplomacy. Why not start that diplomacy from day one with people you KNOW you can trust.

6. If you could choose any member to straight up join you from another tribe in the world, who would it be and why?

If I could personally pick someone else from world 75? Thats a tough one. Since there are quite a few good players popping up. AcidGod would be up there but I would probably pick Faaaarky his personality seems like someone I could get along with for a year and not want to strangle him too badly. I would say 2 Nerds one account, but I find myself wanting to strangle Dave and hes not even in my tribe...Sam can come by anytime for coffee and cookies though.

7. Some of my (wannabe)journalist friends have asked me to pose some more regular questions, so a classic, what do you think sets your tribe apart from the rest of the top 5.

Well, the thing that sets us apart from everyone else as a tribe right now would have to be the same thing that gives people ammunition against us eh?

8. Finally, would you like to give a brief overview of yourself, leadership history and some fun facts about yourself to lets us all know what your like?

As for my personal experience, I started in world 7 under a different Alias. Became addicted like all the rest of you and then soon found myself in world 12 under a different Name. It always seems like a new alias is a fresh start you know? Anyway, after DNY took over w12 I set my sights on world 42 to join a premade playing with King Geldwolf, River/smurf (who i heard faked his own death or something) and Dauthi. I ended up having to quit the world due to being deployed to Afghanistan.

Anyway.. some fun facts... English is my third language, I enjoy long walks on the beach, getting caught in the rain and I got very drunk when Deutschland won the world cup. ^.^

[/SPOIL]

333

[SPOIL]
1. Could you give a brief overview of your tribes history? (ie. Premades, accidentally found one another,freak event of nature, miss-spelled porn hub and ended up here, etc etc)

Well, I guess you can say we accidentally found each other... Malfurion Stormrage. and I began talking, and then ended up in the same tribe together, where we found the leadership there to be appalling. At the same time We were talking with Sabotur who also found his tribe's leadership to be lacking.

So we 3 decided that we would start a tribe and presto, you have what you see today...


2. If you were to describe your tribes goals in one sentence, what would they be?

One sentence? I think one word should suffice... WIN!!!

3. So 333 has finally chosen a name and CoA; let me be the first to say nice! Could you tell the public how you came to decide on this name?

I typed in "good names for a tribe" in google, and that was the first thing that popped up...

4. Your tribe has managed to remain out of the externals spotlight somewhat, is this a deliberate policy action on your part, or just luck and no blabber mouth personalities in the tribe?

hmmm, maybe a little luck, because I know we have some very outspoken people here (I being one of them). Overall though, I think the fact is our tribe members all feel the same, we will show by actions not our words, and then we will show our words.

5. You list Norse as your academy tribe on your profile. Does Norse know about this situation, or is this something that you are to later impose?

But of course they know, doesn't mean they have agreed to it, but then again they have not disagreed either.

6. If you could choose any member to straight up join you from another tribe in the world, who would it be and why?

Honestly... I really do not have any person I would just straight up invite if I could... The one I would invite would be the most active and willing person to be a team player. I honestly do not know enough people in this world to know.

7. Some of my (wannabe)journalist friends have asked me to pose some more regular questions, so a classic, what do you think sets your tribe apart from the rest of the top 5.

I would have to say the members in it. I for one have led a top tribe before, as you know, and been in leadership of tribes that have won worlds, under a different account. But others in this tribe have won worlds multiple times, as dukes, part of leadership or was part of such a tribe.

So the experience level I would have to say is what sets us apart.

8. Finally, would you like to give a brief overview of yourself, leadership history and some fun facts about yourself to lets us all know what your like?
Not really, but will I guess.

I started back in W2, hated that world, freaking 250 hours just to send a train at an enemy, damn family tribes. Was a war coordinator, and was a complete newb. I was brought into tw and taught by TollxBooth, whom i knew in a different online game.

learned how to fight dirty and aggressively in W10, was duke and founder of (~SP~) in W15, but rl kicked me in the rear and I had to quit being serious about TW...

I popped in a few times here and there to lead, but never was serious... I did however play as a coplayer in multiple worlds, but all I did was set up ops and attack people, nothing more nothing less.

And now I am here fully, and I am taking this world seriously.

That should sum it up

[/SPOIL]

Norse
[SPOIL]
1. Could you give a brief overview of your tribes history? (ie. Premades, accidentally found one another,freak event of nature, miss-spelled porn hub and ended up here, etc etc)

Kinda funny actually how this tribe came to be...I was initially in Breeze's pre-made(the lego one), and he got busy with rl and it wasn't a no haul world like expected, so that didn't go ahead. I later met I think on the externals, my co-duke, just a few days before the opening of the world, never spoken or met him before, seen him post a few times, but that's about it. We met up, spoke and he had a little gang of people, I had a few close friends myself that were interested to go wherever I went and we decided to pull our guys together and form a small, fun sorta tribe. As the making of the world took place and the preperation of the in game details and that, about 24-48 hours before world opening, we collected a further 4-7 players each that decided to join us; all up around 25 I think. Yes, we are a pre-made. My co-duke and I only meeting a few days before the opening of the world made it interesting, not knowing one another and expecting to run a tribe, it wasn't much of a big deal as we only wished to have fun, muck around and that, but we saw in front of us a solid team of players and thought to really give this world a shot!

2. If you were to describe your tribes goals in one sentence, what would they be?

I'll answer it with this song...WORLD DOMINATION! mwahahahhaha ;p
(Song was Drop The World by Little Wayne but not linked due to rules)

3. Norse has received a lot of positive critique from a number of people on the externals. Do you think these are accurate assessments of yourselves, or would you say you're all just posturing?

A lot of who are saying positive things are just good friends of either my co-duke or myself...we are both I guess widely known, and all in good terms, so I guess positive feedback is a given. Nonetheless, even though some of it may be bias, and some are indeed non-bias, I am confident we have solid grouping.

4. I know a number of your members personally and can vouch for them as fun and interesting players, however for all those that have never met any of your tribe, can you give a break down of the following players and the reason you have nominated them for the role:
The Big Mouth
The Joker
The Pointwhore
The Collected Killer
The Whiner
The Coward
The Secretly in-charge Baron
(If you can think of any other fun/silly titles that will not offend your tribe but people might enjoy reading please do divulge.)

The Big Mouth - Dave(immunesoul) TwoNerdsOneAccount
The Joker - .Puff The Magic Dragon.
The Pointwhore - Spekulents
The Collected Killer - Azazel Aziz
The Whiner - Eli ;)<3 haha
The Coward - Fruit Loops
The Secretly in-charge Baron - CDN(JustAGod) thinks his duke.


5. Now, being rank 3, you actually are only ranked 5th in the OD stats for tribes (as of the time of this interview), I do not want to go as far as to say that you must therefore all be pointwhores, but how would you explain to the haters this gross disparity in Points and OD ranking?

A tribe with as little internals as us and still with some decent OD to go along with our villages I think is pretty average; to be honest, if a leader played their cards right with diplomacy, they would all have similar OD to us. Our OD is enough to prove we are indeed clearing our villages we noble. Though the reason being for our OD not being as high as maybe some may like is due to the fact I've avoided our tribes involvement in any war, thus making it that little bit easier for us to grow and to grow without so much a fight. Not to mention, when we do noble villages, there wont be much retaliation...for whatever reason that may be.

6. If you could choose any member to straight up join you from another tribe in the world, who would it be and why?
No one really comes to mind tbh

7. Some of my (wannabe)journalist friends have asked me to pose some more regular questions, so a classic, what do you think sets your tribe apart from the rest of the top 5?

Well, it depends on the perspective in which you take it. We have a low member count, our recruitment in game has been very little, and yet we have still been maintaing top ranking. Like seen in some of the stats about changing of tribes(dismissing of players/recruiting) we have one of the least, if you actually looked into it, a fair few of those players were through accidentally accepting applications to join rather than rejecting them. Honestly, one thing that I really do think that separates us from others is that we have a consistency in growth, in leadership, expectations and ops etc. etc. and we ain't no family tribe/mass recruiters/mass internalers ;) The only leadership here is my co duke and I - No council, no barons; all they seem to do is slow the process of things down and make a bad tint on leadership within the tribe if they make the wrong decisions or say the wrong thing at the wrong time.

8. Finally, would you like to give a brief overview of yourself, leadership history and some fun facts about yourself to lets us all know what you’re like?

I'm a young man, personal fitness trainer and councillor/psychologist. I've played since w2, led many successful tribes; the most recent one being probably Venus on w71...anything else about me must continue to remain a mystery ;)
[/SPOIL]


FUBAR

[SPOIL]
1. Could you give a brief overview of your tribes history? (ie. Premades, accidentally found one another,freak event of nature, miss-spelled porn hub and ended up here, etc etc)

I would have to say we found one another....
Many experienced players that know the basics.
But a bit off miss spelled porn hub would explain a few members ;)


2. If you were to describe your tribes goals in one sentence, what would they be?

Not to pass out from all the smoke ;)

3. Being a family tribe, you have received some negative reviews on the externals, and general anti-family sentiment; would you like to justify having a family tribe, and is there anything you would like to say to the haters?

With love comes hate...
Everyone is entitled to their opinion and we must respect that.


4. I don't recognise any of members, is this because many of your players are new, or are you under alias's?

Many have previous worlds with past names yes, You may know one or 2.

5. You have quite a low OD in comparison to your points, is this because of pointwhoring, or because there is no worthy competition around you?

Competition is everywhere rankings do not show this ...
as we are not a core tribe we have had the pleasure of an easy start up process.


6. If you could choose any member to straight up join you from another tribe in the world, who would it be and why?

Pacmon a family relative.
But he is under a diff name in this world that i cannot give away.


7. Some of my (wannabe)journalist friends have asked me to pose some more regular questions, so a classic, what do you think sets your tribe apart from the rest of the top 5.

FUBAR

8. Finally, would you like to give a brief overview of yourself, leadership history and some fun facts about yourself to lets us all know what your like?

I have roughly 7 years experience under different names on different servers.Led a fair few Along the way.
I have 2 children...
One of which im teaching to farm (necessary) ;)
I dont mind a friendly chat so feel free to send me a mail.


[/SPOIL]


@Night

[SPOIL]
1. Could you give a brief overview of your tribes history? (ie. Premades, accidentally found one another, freak event of nature, miss-spelled porn hub and ended up here, etc etc)

We started up as premade of some friends form another server. With a range of players all from "elite" down to supernoobs, but as everybody knows who have ever started a premade, lack of motivation, IRL issues and bad starts make many quit and to funktion you then need to recruit. So I would say that we are today partially a premade and partially a randomtribe in the Northeast.

2. If you were to describe your tribes goals in one sentence, what would they be?

Our goals are ofcourse to be the victor once the world close.

3. Your tribe has a very impressive OD score, both attacking and defending, you yourself hold a personally impressive one to boot; does this mean your aggressively removing any tribe in particular, or are you far more just clearing everything that breathes in your tribes area of influence?

Our OD reflect the modern way of playing Tribalwars. As soon as a world start you are surrounded by families. It is often decent players that start them. use the masses to protect them and do the bidding and then trough the the rubbish once they are out of troops etc.. but no, We have not faught anyone in particular, We have had a few families decare on us and sometimes when you hit someone you get a minor gangbang on your feet. Nothing that deter us though. We might be winning ground a bit slower this way, but winning the ground we will.

4. You recently received a pretty positive review from asalamalakum in the top 20 tribes thread. Do you think an accurate picture was painted of your tribe? Would you like to add or dispute anything said?

The thread in externals about us might have been flattering, but what it really shows is that he dont really know us at all. That keeps me happy, as it means I dont have too many leaks in the tribe.

5. I do not personally recognise anyone from your tribe, but it could be due to alias's or me just living in a proverbial card board box, either way could you tell me who is your most interesting member and why they have achieved this title?

You dont recognise our members as most of us have come from a different server and are not used to play here. Some of us who have played here are using different alias for the reason of not having to deal with past issues in a new world. We have a few aces, but I wont decribe them, You will just need to follow their gameplay as it unfold.

6. If you could choose any member to straight up join you from another tribe in the world, who would it be and why?

N.A

7. Some of my (wannabe)journalist friends have asked me to pose some more regular questions, so a classic, what do you think sets your tribe apart from the rest of the top 5.

I dont think there is much difference between any top tribes. Sure some recruit their way to the top, some internal, others fight, but in the end of the day, it is small differences between the top tribes .

8. Finally, would you like to give a brief overview of yourself, leadership history and some fun facts about yourself to lets us all know what your like?

In regards to myself. I am a strongwilled person who only play this game for the strategic beuty. I have lead tribes before and have done so with reasonable success.

6.) BLANK

Next, BGeorge3 interviewed YouNoob?, the leader of BLANK. This is what was said:

[SPOIL]
BGeorge3: Hello, as one of the founders of BLANK, would you mind answering some questions for the Unofficial w75 Blog? We'd appreciate it if you could answer most or all of the questions. Thanks.
YouNoob?: Well I don't mind answering these questions ;) Yosh!
BGeorge3: Could you give a brief overview of your tribe’s history? (I.e. Premades, accidental, miss-spelled porn hub and ended up here, etc etc)
YouNoob?: Well Blank doesn't have any tribe history, well this was pre-made (some of the members was with me) but mostly of the other members was met here. but the name Blank was originally got from the anime "No Game, No Life" which is free amazing.
BGeorge3: If you were to describe your tribe’s goals in one sentence, what would they be?
YouNoob?: We have only one goal and that is to win and conquer this world. pretty much my goal in every worlds that I joined and some other members as well.
BGeorge3: Do you think your tribe has what it takes to make it to mid-game? Endgame?
YouNoob?: Off course we have what it takes, with me playing and with team work we could make it to mid, I am confident since I went through all this same scenario in my previous worlds
BGeorge3: What are some tribes you think could be problems down the road?
YouNoob?: Well if the worlds decide to gang bang us since we are in the mid part or if people get's lazy and inactive.
BGeorge3: What is your favorite thing about your tribe?
YouNoob?: My favorite thing about my tribe is the fast response of members and also the cluster that is starting to build up.
BGeorge3: If you could choose any member to straight up join you from another tribe in the world, who would it be and why?
YouNoob?: well I would choose RL friends or Country mate friends here in the tribe, we could easily coordinate with just a Call or a facebook message. ;)
BGeorge3: Some of my (wannabe) journalist friends have asked me to pose some more regular questions, so a classic, what do you think sets your tribe apart from the rest of the top 10.
YouNoob?: Well I don't know from other tribes, but one thing I am sure that every member here is a family and we would help them no matter what, even if we are to fall we will fight till the end, being loyal to the tribe and treasuring them as family is what a awesome tribe would it turn out to be.
BGeorge3: Finally, would you like to give a brief overview of yourself, leadership history and some fun facts about yourself to let us all know what you’re like?
YouNoob?: Ok, to be honest I am a solo player back then on w 52 but I do help if in needed, I am not a great leader like the others, well the only world that I led was when I was on w 69 under method then merged into Varyag and also took part of the leadership. we are rank 1 back then on w 69 but just a little wrong decision could leave the tribe to fall. I've learned my lesson back then, though it was fun but I'll be more wiser than before. Well my real account name was "sakrahe000" (you could check the stats), well I've played different worlds and only few are memorable. In real life I am a young Guitarist/Musician also a college student xD
BGeorge3: I thank you for your participation.

Here is the Editor's Commentary for this tribe:
[SPOIL]
Editor’s commentary:
BLANK, is semi-premade located in K55 with the Shadow family and ~SF~ not far away, could their northwest section be in trouble? Another big threat to BLANK’s southern border is the FUBAR tribe that spans all across the southern half of K55, will they go to war if BLANK decides to expands to the south or FUBAR expands to the north? The tribe that I think could be the biggest threat to BLANK is 333 because they are fairly intertwined along the border of K45/55. In addition, if 333 nobled out BLANK, then 333 would hold a lot of clustered positioning in and around the core. It should be interesting to see what happens with BLANK in the coming months.[/SPOIL]

7.) Hood was not interviewed due to being a part of the Arrow Family.

8.) Fart
Next, BGeorge3 interviewed Khite Tzu a.k.a Fark, leader of Fart, the interview went as follows:
[SPOIL]
BGeorge3: Hello, as the founder of the Old Farts family, would you mind answering some questions for the Unofficial w75 Blog? We'd appreciate it if you could answer most or all of the questions. Thanks.
Khite - Faaaaark: you're doing the blog?
BGeorge3: Could you give a brief overview of your tribe’s history? (i.e. Premades, accidental, miss-spelled porn hub and ended up here, etc etc)
Khite – Faaaaark: We're a premade comprising of a group of friends from W58. We recently won W58 and I found life to be boring without TW. I rallied the gang for some more fun and we found a few old world friends along the way in our area.
BGeorge3: If you were to describe your tribe’s goals in one sentence, what would they be?
Khite – Faaaaark: Have fun, enjoy the game and mass delete when the fun ends.
BGeorge3: Do you think your tribe has what it takes to make it to mid-game? Endgame?
Khite – Faaaaark: I'd never start a premade if I didn't know we could make it to mid-game. As for end-game, most of my guys have played accounts in excess of 20-30 million points so that's a no brainer.
BGeorge3: What are some tribes you think could be problems down the road?
Khite – Faaaaark: Problems... hmmm... I'd prefer to keep this to myself. I do not want to name tribes that could take my comments the wrong way. What I will discuss is the tribes that have impressed me.
ARROW/HOOD - They seem to have a good plan. Recruit and purge. Rinse and repeat. An endless amount of food to expand with while controlling their area sensibly. Whether they have the ability to fight a war hardened tribe is yet to be seen. Let's be honest, the Apes skirmish was not a war. Would ARROW have fought them if I had not started flaming Apes on the externals? I suppose we will never know. The issue here is when well-known posters start a PnP war, other tribes tend to jump on board and take advantage of the situation. Apes was simply random recruitment gone bad, which allowed for a well-coordinated tribe to pick them off. Hats off to ARROW for having the balls to do it though.
Norse - Now here's a tribe to watch. Good recruitment and sensible expansion. I'd expect these guys to dominate the south. I've heard good things about their leadership too. I expect them to hang around for a long time if this world's troop speed doesn't bore them to death...

BGeorge3: What is your favorite thing about your tribe?
Khite – Faaaaark: There are minimal internal issues and the new guys we have met have settled in well. Additionally, our skype chat is always alive. Communication is paramount in this game.
BGeorge3: If you could choose any member to straight up join you from another tribe in the world, who would it be and why?
Khite – Faaaaark: Two Nerds One Account - Immunesoul has spunk on the externals. He prances around, but so do I and most of my old world tribemates. The players on that account know how to play during start-up. My only reservation is that if I was here for the long haul, my only doubt would be how long would they hang around for.
BGeorge3: Some of my (wannabe) journalist friends have asked me to pose some more regular questions, so a classic, what do you think sets your tribe apart from the rest of the top 10.
Khite – Faaaaark: My charisma? Or is it my body odour? Now that people know where I am, the tribes around us have responded in differing ways. We seem to have more attention... on the map and in the externals. There's only a handful of tribes here that are defined by the reputation of their leader. Imho, Norse is the only other tribe that has done this.
With this said, a tribe's reputation is often defined by its leader's reputation. It can be a huge advantage if used correctly but it can also be the downfall of a tribe.

BGeorge3: Finally, would you like to give a brief overview of yourself, leadership history and some fun facts about yourself to let us all know what you’re like?
Khite – Faaaaark: Main leadership history includes the following tribes where I was Duke at one stage or another:
W11 – Raven
W12 - DNY
W41 - OCD
W53 - Coming (played in Drama later on)
W58 - Fork
Most people that know me from the externals either love me or hate me. I seem to have a polarizing effect on people. Haters gotta hate I suppose, but my guys are loyal to me as they know what I am capable of when leading with a cool head.
My primary flaw is that if you catch me on a bad day, I will declare on you in a heartbeat. When this happens, my tribe usually responds with mixed thoughts but they knuckle down and go about removing the targeted tribe. This is probably why they love playing with me, I provide wars for them that seriously test their ability.
Finally, I will be the first to admit that I talk it up on the externals but that is what it is for... PnP. Where many fail to back up their statements on the battlefield, I always lead my tribe into war. Players like Allos? will order their tribe to war and then spend the next 3 months internalling everything in sight.

BGeorge3: I thank you for your participation.
[/SPOIL]

Here is the Editor's Commentary for this tribe:
[SPOIL]
Editor’s commentary:
Kind of strange doing a commentary on my own tribe. Haha. So far this premade is doing decent in the startup of this world, regardless of the sparseness of some of their accounts. However, they are surrounded by multiple tribes. With @Night/WrapIt to the north and MW/333 to the south, one can only wonder what will happen in the coming months. Now having declared an official war on the Oxygen Tribe both in-game and on the externals, it should be interesting to see what happens since Fart is only 50% the size of Oxygen in K56. Activity and coordination could play a big part in this war. With this war, is it possible that FUBAR may try to reach in and snag a couple villages off of Oxygen and Fart as they beat on each other? This war will definitely be interesting to watch.
[/SPOIL]

9.) ~SF~

Next, BGeorge3 interviewed jlovekamp, leader of ~SF~:
[SPOIL]
BGeorge3: Hello, as the founder of ~SF~, would you mind answering some questions for the Unofficial w75 Blog? We'd appreciate it if you could answer most or all of the questions. Thanks.
Jlovekamp: Will do
BGeorge3: Could you give a brief overview of your tribe’s history? (i.e. Premades, accidental, miss-spelled porn hub and ended up here, etc etc)
Jlovekamp: ~SF~ was founded back on W69. There has been an ever growing group of players that have joined along the way. We are a premade tribe that selects players for each world based on settings and who prefers the setting imposed.
BGeorge3: If you were to describe your tribe’s goals in one sentence, what would they be?
Jlovekamp: I believe our tribes goal is the same as any others, make it to the end of the world and be the last one standing.
BGeorge3: Do you think your tribe has what it takes to make it to mid-game? Endgame?
Jlovekamp: I believe this tribe has what it takes to make it to the end.
BGeorge3: What are some tribes you think could be problems down the road?
Jlovekamp: Problem tribes down the road..... NORSE for one, several of our mentors are playing there. Arrow/Hood, maybe, if they can hold together.
BGeorge3: What is your favorite thing about your tribe?
Jlovekamp: How well we all work together as a team. Playing several worlds together you can almost anticipate a tribemates next move.
BGeorge3: If you could choose any member to straight up join you from another tribe in the world, who would it be and why?
Jlovekamp: Two Nerds One Account - My old mentor.
BGeorge3: Some of my (wannabe) journalist friends have asked me to pose some more regular questions, so a classic, what do you think sets your tribe apart from the rest of the top 10.
Jlovekamp: Strong leadership without the dictatorship.
BGeorge3: Finally, would you like to give a brief overview of yourself, leadership history and some fun facts about yourself to let us all know what you’re like?
Jlovekamp: Hmmm, a toughy here. Started playing TW on W5....lead a few tribes here and there but always seemed to bounce around. Fell into communication with Immunesoul on W68 and he helped my gameplay dramatically. Leadership in general has always been easy for me as it is what I do in RL. I am a Maintenance Director for a trucking company with over 3000 pieces of equipment hauling frieght so coordination is necessary. Planning and the cooperation of others is essential to what I do every day. Fun facts, well, I enjoy antagonizing people. A fellow leader told me recently that he compares me Richard Nixon.
BGeorge3: :D Very nice. Thank you for your participation.[/SPOIL]

Here is the Editor's Commentary for this tribe:
[SPOIL]
Editor’s commentary:
Well, the SF tribe. They are located in the core in K45, surrounded by multiple of the top tribes with Arrow/Hood and the Shadow family to their west, Fart and MW to their north, and 333 to their east, things definitely don’t look good for the future of this tribe. They say multiple of their mentors are players in Norse, will they somehow work out a deal to be able to stay alive? Maybe they’ll get nobled and co-play accounts in Norse? Another possibility is they could start co-playing accounts in 333 which also seems to be somehow related to Norse. Ultimately, I think that this tribe will fall unless they can fight hard and outgrow all the other top tribes in the area, or maybe they’ll simply keep it Stress Free and delete once they see incomings.
[/SPOIL]

10.) Shadow

Next, BGeorge3 interviewed letiss123, leader of Shadow, the interview went as followed:
[SPOIL]
BGeorge3: Hello, as the founder of the Shadow family, would you mind answering some questions for the Unofficial w75 Blog? We'd appreciate it if you could answer most or all of the questions. Thanks.
Regards,
BGeorge3
letiss123: That’s cool
BGeorge3: Could you give a brief overview of your tribe’s history? (i.e. Premades, accidental, miss-spelled porn hub and ended up here, etc etc)
letiss123: Premade: Shadow Knights have been around for quite a few worlds. Most of the members you can see in Shadow have played together on other worlds and work very well together.
BGeorge3: If you were to describe your tribe’s goals in one sentence, what would they be?
letiss123: Goal: Well I think everyone's goal in this world is to win lol, but also having fun while playing
BGeorge3: Do you think your tribe has what it takes to make it to mid-game? Endgame?
letiss123: Future game play: Yes I know that we can make it to mid-game and even end-game. The thing that makes this tribe great is the communication, teamwork and trust between each Tribe members. These are some of my favourite things about my tribe, all of our members are incredible.
BGeorge3: What are some tribes you think could be problems down the road?
letiss123: Possible future problem Tribes: Probably every tribe that is not an ally lol.
BGeorge3: What is your favorite thing about your tribe?
letiss123: Favourite thing about My Tribal family: The players.
BGeorge3: If you could choose any member to straight up join you from another tribe in the world, who would it be and why?
letiss123: Possible Tribe for another world: Something that would be incredible, is having a tribe made up of the dukes from the top 20 tribes. Now that would be something to see :)
BGeorge3: Some of my (wannabe) journalist friends have asked me to pose some more regular questions, so a classic, what do you think sets your tribe apart from the rest of the top 10.
letiss123: What sets us apart from the rest: What I think sets us apart, is just what I said before; the loyalty, trust, communication and teamwork. I know all good tribes have these things, but when you are in Shadow, you can see how great the sense of community is, and, how all the members are very selfless and willing to help their tribe-mates. I think that's what makes a good tribe.
BGeorge3: Finally, would you like to give a brief overview of yourself, leadership history and some fun facts about yourself to let us all know what you’re like?
letiss123: I have played many worlds and have led quite a few tribes. Under this account you can see it hasn't grown that big and the reason for that is, I usually merge with someone else and do well in mid-end game, but in this world I am going to continue as is. I co-play with a great player, many probably know him. It is MRMR, and we have done very well by working together.
I hope that answers your questions.
Thanks
Letiss123, Duke Shadow Family

BGeorge3: Yes, that works. :) I thank you for your participation. :)

Here is the Editor's Commentary for this tribe:
[SPOIL]
Editor’s commentary:
Hmmm. The Shadow family. They are located in the core in K54. Will they survive? Who knows. Based on the dominance maps, they have Arrow and Hood to their northwest, and then they have Norse in the opposite corner of the K. Who will noble who? Who will be allied with whom? Will the Shadow family look to take over more of the core and go over into K45 and war the ~SF~ tribe? Only time will tell.[/SPOIL]
