Lapithos is born, the date is, February 17th 2014, and as it’s tale begins to unravel we have increased evidence that unfortunately favours Dave’s Thesis. The most persuading evidence not only proves the existence of noobs but rather empowers their already diminished status. jdc400 is the prime culprit here. Venturing from another world, a recently opened world, he came with promises of victory and crowns that led him to form Dark Enigma. With a grandiose ego and a hit of stupidity he managed to

Or so claims daveinator007, he insists Lapithos has reached it’s expiration date 2 days into the world. - For more insight see externals, ‘This world is full of noobs’.
Dfd might have given Druvi and others a run for their money. Up for debate.

Ranked #1 83 Members 202,528 points
Ranked #2 & #3 198 Members 340,499 points
These guys have everything going for them , they top ABP, DBP, Fighters and points. Half of them are pre-made the other half Lapithos-made. The main contenders for O55, the disputed ocean by all the top 12. If you look at the map they all have a piece of it. They need some watching out for. Denied fair play by EN in Ialysos they are hungry and their hunger is hard to quench.
Combined these guys can deal and take heavy damage. 200 members is a feat to manage and organize. Leadership will play a challenging role. Combined they come on top as #1. Our interviews revealed they may have pacts which can allow them to hold the upper hand in 55. They are predominantly situated in the center-towardssouth of Ocean 55. Before any encounter with CM they will surely clash with the various

These guys form a tight cluster bordering the south of 44 and the north of 45 hinting towards the east. If they play their cards right they can paint a big target on their backs and 4 different alliances can have a piece. They need to establish a core and make some friends.

What would grepo be without it’s benchmark Spartans. This common name short of exceeds standard. Their ABP and DBP is not as impressive as you’d imagine.

Again, another name that comes up more often than if you play AoE. They are scattered throughout 55 and in-between some alliances. I suspect they might have a pact. Or various pacts. Lots of in-and-outs in the alliance (grepostats). I can’t say leadership is below average but recruitment is.
Populating O56 they are currently uncontended. Fragmented members from other alliances that spill over into 56 will become their fodder. Unless they move north into 55 or another contender rises up things over there will be pretty stale. Like old, dry crackers.
A reasonably young alliance that is still premature. They have a lot of growing to do but being in the thick of O55 they must learn to run before they can walk in order to survive out here. Despite their dwarf size when compared to CM their attack and defense rank shows that they can compete.

GeneralOfTheCorps answered the following. Tell us about Your Self and How 'The New Corps' came to be. We came to be off hermonnassa after finishing 7th place in the world and 3rd in the ocean! Where do you see 'The New Corps' heading when BP ends. We see our self's heading with success after we take on pacts after BP. Who at present poses the highest threat to 'The New Corps'. Our highest threat is Never Walk Alone. Does 'The New Corps' acknowledge any worthy foes. We Have not got any foes at the moment, as we are encouraged to take on pacts soon! :)
richard keeley answered the following for us, great lad. Tell us about Your Self and How 'Guardians of Hades' Came to be. I've been playing for about 2 1/2 to 3 years, GOH was from Lamia and later merged with Black Stance. We came here as Lamia closes in 16 days and wanted a crack at winning a world. The Lamia players are solid, and we have also got some good players from other worlds, we are happy with the team.
W h e r e d o y ou s e e 'Guardians of Hades' heading when BP ends. We will consolidate our position here, some of our players have been threatened by certain members, we hate bullies and we don't forget, let the games begin! Who at present poses the highest threat to 'Guardians of Hades'. Any alliance in the top 10.

D o e s ' Gu a r di a ns o f Ha de s ' Acknowledge any worthy foes. Early days, we have some good players who have been together for more than 2 years, we been around the block, ask me the question in 2 months time LOL!
Move. Gave the following answers. Tell us about Your Self and How 'Check Mate' came to be. Well, I learnt the game mechanics in Rho, where I was a member of Virus then led by Lady Acacia, who also ment o r e d m e t o g e t h e r with lancaster62 and now we're runn i n g C h e c k Ma t e t o g et h e r . My experience with leadership mostly comes from Idalium with NightFall and Gonnos with Shadow Knights. I founded Check Mate straight after world release, most of the alliance was formed before it opened though, most of those who were in before the world itself came out are players brought over from other worlds. Where do you see 'Check Mate' heading when BP ends. I see us positioning ourselves somewhere in the core, more exact location will probably be revealed in the nearest future. Who at present poses the highest threat to 'Check Mate'. Tbh I can't really see any at the moment, I reckon it's because I don't know most of the other alliances, they'll probably come forward when the game actually begins.
erayeray61. left some stuff unanswered but it’s here anyway. Tell us about Your Self and How 'The Ottomans' came to be. I am Eray and I am playing long, long time grepolis, I like the game, I like to make alliances. Where do you see 'The Ottomans' heading when BP ends. The otto-
mans are an legion From Turkey, they are very strong, I think we can stay at the 3d place.
The Spartans were meant to go here. And the following rebuttal between my reporter and a wise *chuckle* gary955i ensued. “Are you the founder? me and some mates are doing a paper and want to ask founder some questions regards, Sour “ - asked Pickled Soldier (PS). “lol,,,oh yes,,,Check Mate are doing a paper,,,excuse if i seem a bit surprised but what paper would that be,,,and what roll do you play in C/M” - replied a flamboyant gary955i “haha, its in no way related to the alliance we (me and a friend) are interviewing a collection of people. I play the same role everyone does in my alliance. “ - said PS To which gary955i said - “ummm this is a new one,,,,what do you need to know,,,and whats the paper for,,, “ “Are you the founder? For externals, quite common on all worlds” - Explained a baffled PS To which gary955i uttered the following - “not in the worlds iv been in matey, iv been in grip for around 3yrs and tribal wars before that for around 4/5 yrs,,,,long, long time ago,,,but never had a paper,,,,, “ Ah well, those are word per word. You get the jist of it. An Incompetent and oblivious leader that has never seen the face the externals. The fool utters so much nonsense. So I will personally link the paper. Heck, I’ll hire his very own paperboy. Credits to — PS, Mate., Erayeray61, richard keeley, GeneralOfTheCorps
