    Kind of tangential but while we're using NBA players:

    Not one, not two, not three...  (I'm sure I've missed some guilds too)

    ITRL *Updated Periodically* - News, Siege Results: Cho-Jong-OUT in Serendia

     
    Headlines:
    Media Blackout Expected for the Next Week, Citing "⚠️️ TOP SECRET ⚠️️" Security Concerns:

    TRADING PLACES, MEME GUILD EDITION: FML wins Serendia after Cho gets knocked out;
    15 MINUTES OF FAME: Chonation OUT of Serendia, meme guild booted by BlackRose and FML;
    Calpheon (ILLUMINATI?);
    So how about that Calpheon:

    NOTHING TO SEE HERE: Valenica (remains Barcode), Balenos (LotD, basically nothing to see), Mediah (passed to Vision); 
    Explanation of Critical's failure from the inside: Top PvPers left to form their own guild, GM was scapegoated, new GM proceeds with terror purge tactics and continues mass kicks.  No turning back.
    Yup Critical is dead, another chess piece off the board;
    Gravity picked up by ManUp, remnants of Iconic kicked to the curb;
    Barcode picks up some from failed Gravity/Iconic merger;
     
    Scuttlebutt:
    FROM CALPHEON WITH LOVE: Expected detente between ManUp and Barcode, sources within both sides floating prospect of merger in the event of attrition via boredom or as the contingency in the event that latest Gravity/ManUp merger fails:*
     

    *Credit to the New Yorker for originally publishing this cartoon, which has been heavily modified for this parody; Also, credit to Kendrox for the suggestion that I use different colored text;
    Is NewEra about to be short-lived?
    Give Lacari some benefit of the doubt, high level source indicates there is a contingency plan already in place in the event of shambolic fallout from Manup's latest merger;
     
    News from Around NA
    State of the Game: 14 (!!!) guilds drop on a Tier 1 Node on Monday, lol;
    Tier 1s busy as hell, 10(!) guilds total dropping on two tier 1s in Valencia on Sunday;
    Seeing those TRI Kzarka Krieg swords already, have fun Dark Knight rerollers;
    Now collaborating with Skuld's NA Node Wars Report, thank you Skuld. 
    Congratulations to BigandShiney for getting level 62;
    T3/T2 caliber guilds moving down bracket and use of temps/mercs remains controversial, heated thread on General Discussion calling for 7 day guild change CD for territory siege winners gets locked and removed by GMs;

    Clearly Gravity "strategists" ascribe to the AOL school of mergers and acquisitions. Also clearly they deserve a raise for such a fantastic record of management, #goldenparachute.
    The fact that they convinced lacari and ManUp to bail them out though objectively is an astounding feat... kinda like the Pelicans in that onesided Boogie Cousins trade.

    Aye I've said before that lower tier guild drama has more flair than the drudgery of "siege politics."

  8. Auteur added a post in a topic Siege guild tier list 18th of February   

    Sidebar, stating the obvious but Orwen had no institutional organization or stability to speak of, it ended up being the server producing just a pile of mercs/free agents that were snapped up by the other institutional players from Uno/Edan (heck even Uno produced Barcode, which has some semblance of stability).  Yes there's LotD but without a doubt Orwen is the poor stepchild of the original servers.

    And Manup accuses Gravity of dodging...  Dam how things change quick from "Gravity #1 dodgers" and almost dead guild to Manup running for it...

    Siege Report 02/04/2017 *So Much For Ending the "Barcode Nonsense," Gravity Zombie Rush in Mediah*
    Lacari: "I Will End This Barcode Nonsense"
    Barcode/Orca Response: "Nice Joke Bra"*

    Perhaps fortunate for Gravity, Barcode instead has drawn the ire of Lacari who claimed Manup would "end this Barcode nonsense."  And Manup had their chance too since Barcode only fielded 3 guilds total vs Manup's 2, but it ended up that Lacari's statement became nonsense.  With developments in Mediah, perhaps Manup will turn their attention back upon Gravity?
    *Barcode, please feel free to come up with a more witty response to Lacari's apparent ultimatum
     
    Gravity, After Complaining of "Zombie Rush" by Alloy, Pulls Off Same Tactic in Sending 5 Guilds After Mediah

    In a not surprising move considering that Gravity has been on the brink and needing a win badly just for survival, they assemble a 5 guild team to zerg down Mediah.  Vision attempted their best Rick impression but there were too many zombies.  With ManUp losing in Valencia the logical move for next week appears to be ManUp targeting Mediah to try, again, to deliver the killing blow.  If history is any indicator though, Gravity will voluntarily vacate and go elsewhere...
     
    Balenos/Serendia anyone?

    Even if President Trump can get Gorusch on the Supreme Court, there's no way Justice Kennedy, the deciding vote, wants to be known as the Justice that greenlighted Korematsu-lite.

    The Siege Report 01/28/17 *The Report is Back, Gravity Pulls a Hillary, Money Money ManUp*
    The Lead: Live From Gravity Campaign Headquarters in Calpheon
    Notwithstanding the 2v1 at Calpheon, Gravity at its peak purportedly was able to take on 1v3s and would usually not be in that situation because they would have allies of their own.  Needless to say this was a shock defeat for Gravity at Calpheon and Alloy firmly establishes its seat at the table.

    Slithery Business Deals in Mediah: Who's Pulling the Strings?

    Speculation into the exact details of payment aside, it would appear that something changed hands in order to allow Vision to obtain Mediah uncontested.  Really goes to show that NA siege politics has become nothing more than Italian politics: bribe bribe bribe, and it's same group of guilds paying each other off.
     
     
    Die, Die, Die: LoTD Makes the Play of the Game, Deals Critical Blow to Team Critical

    Staying true to form, and you have to admit LoTD has remained consistent, LoTD took out Critical & Co. in Balenos pretty much on their own.  This may be more an indictment on the growing disinterest with sieges given the limitations on PvP, which is narrowing an already shallow pool competing for these castles.
     
    Commentary: Will the Introduction of Naval Content Actually Change Anything?

    Notably Haven, a non-siege guild, became the first NA guild to build a galley AND multiple ships.  While the so-called "top" tier siege/node guilds have strictly been focused on ground-pounding, it's very likely other guilds have looked to the seas and invested significant resources into becoming pioneers on that front.  What remains to be seen though is whether that will be a game-changer at all, or whether the seas are largely ancillary and merely a side-show to the fighting on the ground (amphibious assaults at a future Margoria castle anyone?)  I would like to see nodes, a castle, and other serious content for naval warfare, which may shake things up/open new fronts, especially in the light of the fact that the use of mercing/ringer guilds down-bracket in nodes (sending siege folks into T1s, seriously?) has had a disastrous chilling effect on node warfare.   
     
    Then again, Baka somehow beat Iconic twice at Tier 1s so ???

    It's one thing to legitimately feel aggrieved and vocally protest in the hopes of effecting change, and it's another to just use protests as cover to engage in acts of wanton hooliganism.  I don't understand, and have no sympathy, for so-called "protestors" that solely engage in acts of looting, property damage, vandalism, theft, etc.
