THE JUVAL HOOPLAH Hello folks, no one was getting this going so I figured I would take initiative and get it rolling! This is the Juval Hooplah, my first attempt at doing any sort of writing, creative or otherwise. Therefore, if it ends up being a little dull, I apologize, but I will do my best to keep it interesting! Without further adieu, let's get to the meat of the material! "ACCEPT THE CHALLENGES SO THAT YOU CAN FEEL THE EXHILARATION OF VICTORY." - GEN. GEORGE S. PATTON Beginner protection is coming down, or is down, depending on where you are in the world and when you started. That means ALL those troops you've been building are finally going to be put to use in one way or another. The world map I'll be posting here in a bit will dramatically change over the next couple weeks as you all well know. I'll make sure it's static though so we all have the image to remember, and those who get trampled can look back and say, "What in the actual fluff just happened to me? Look at how many dots my tribe had!" So, without further adieu here is the world map reflecting the top 10 (11 because JDI deserves to be added from what I hear!) tribes and their locations: ^What a cluster that is....literally. While some tribes have done a good job of keeping their recruiting relatively compact, others have seemingly just recruited from anywhere on the map. Maybe they are just so awesome that they know they'll dominate their respective areas solo and move towards each other in a Rambo fashion? We'll see! "A GOOD BATTLE PLAN THAT YOU ACT ON TODAY CAN BE BETTER THAN A PERFECT ONE TOMORROW." - GEN. GEORGE S. PATTON This is where we ask these top 10 (11) tribes questions and they answer them, and we all bask in the new found knowledge and the confidence exuding from all of the leadership. It might even help sway a couple forum members opinions on who they're going to join! As of this point, not all top 10 tribes have responded. I've added the responses from those whom have and will edit the other responses in as they come! Enjoy! BCW Questionnaire: Spoiler: BCW Responses Awaiting Response TLC Questionnaire: Spoiler: TLC Responses 1) Tell us about your tribe. Are your players experienced? Do you have leadership experience? "TLC is from W5 (which we are currently winning) and W4 which we merged into TLI and MAC (who are currently winning), my tribe consist mostly of the most experienced players from W5 and W4 and a few others who came from later worlds. As i have lead both the W4 and W5 tribes i would say so....." 2) Do you plan on capping your member limit or are you going to bring everyone in that wants to join? "I want to have around 70 or less members.... we need enough space for former members and a little bit extra for a few others..." 3) How would you describe your tribe leadership? Are you a monarchy, democracy, republic, etc.? "Well I would most closely relate it to a feudalistic system we have multiple layers of leadership each that vote on certain issues and other what not...." 4) In your opinion, which tribe (other than your own) is the biggest threat on this world? "I was originally thinking LAW was but their founder left, so I am not sure if we have a threat anymore....but we will see as the world develops more, sometimes good tribes start later on the rim." Spoiler: TLC Responses 5) In your opinion, which player is the biggest threat on this world? "By far the biggest threat I see is Sylvanthus, not only is he a good friend but for awhile on W5 he was the biggest player before he suddenly went inactive." 6) What is your personal opinion on the top 5 tribes of this world? "It seems most of them are mass recruits, I am still unsure on BCW if they are or not but LAW is still interesting even if they did lose their founder." 7) Are there any open comments you would like to make for the readers of the forums to see and appreciate? "Not really, I feel like it is too early to start making open-ended statements." *R* Questionnaire: Spoiler: *R* responses Awaiting response ELY Questionnaire: Spoiler: ELY responses Awaiting response LAW Questionnaire: Spoiler: LAW responses Awaiting response ROT Questionnaire: Spoiler: ROT responses 1) Tell us about your tribe. Are your players experienced? Do you have leadership experience? "I came here with a group of experienced players, including four top 5 material players from two different worlds. I'm a very experienced leader. I've been a leader for many years, for many different games. This tribe is led by a group of trustworthy players, and they're very experienced players." 2) Do you plan on capping your member limit or are you going to bring everyone in that wants to join? "I'm confident that this tribe would reach 200 members, as usual. Juval world would eventually find our tribe to be the most selective when accepting members. We do not provide protection for those players who can't help themselves. We provide assistance to those guys who make contributions in the name of ROT." 3) How would you describe your tribe leadership? Are you a monarchy, democracy, republic, etc? "As I said, ROT is led by a group of trustworthy and experienced players. We're equal in leadership." 4) In your opinion, which tribe (other than your own) is the biggest threat on this world? "It's too early for me to make assessment on other tribes. It's possible that benchwarmers are exactly like EEK tribes from a previous server I played on. I think Russian tribes may be the biggest threats." 5) In your opinion, which player is the biggest threat on this world? "I'm confident that I'm the best player to play without gold. You will see me rise to the very top. Other than me, After me, Cokky is the next best player and he uses gold." 6) What is your personal opinion on the top 5 tribes of this world? "I think Juval world would end up with four top tribes for many months to come: ROT, TLC, Benchwarmers, and Russia." 7) Are there any open comments you would like to make for the readers of the forums to see and appreciate? "If you want to play with winners, come to Reign of Terror (ROT). We have four top 5 material players who are committed to play for the whole term of J world."
