Scores March 2nd
A week where merged Fury was where the battle ended the closest - four guilds within 1,000 points. Else, the winning margins were comfortable; guild records somewhat scarce; no new guilds broke into the top 6s; no guilds made any top 6 comebacks from the mists of the past; ChaosTheory on Phoenix Fury extended their unbeaten run to 24 weeks, and while the other guilds are slowly gaining on them, the distance is still quite substantial.

Overall...I think of all the GRBs I've commented on in the past, this week's GRB comes the closest to taking the award as the 'most-run-of-the-mill-GRB-ever'. Had to happen one day. Laughing

If there was anything to note, it was that the scores required to rank top 30 on Merged Light and Fury both dropped, to under respectively 50,000 points and 40,000 points for the first time (in an uninterrupted GRB) since the Lailah merge. Whether it is a sign of a decreasing number of guilds or players in general, remains to be seen.

Still, congratulations to all who ranked. ^^

New guild GRB records in the top 6 (note, guilds that are fresh to the ranks might have scored higher before, but not ranked in the top 6), old records from Lailah, Teos, Etain and Gaia carried over:

68209 Absolute Zero - Merged UoF
67720 DirtyLittleFreakz -Merged UoF
53456 Blood Oath - Phoenix UoF
52215 Ghost Division - Phoenix UoF
29115 Defiance - Phoenix AoL

Scores March 9th

There's only one word for today's GRB on merged Fury: Wow!

71 points separated the top four guilds! Now, there have been some very tight fights for the top spot in the past, but we have never seen this many guilds vying for the top spot within such a tiny spread of points on any faction or server before. Which made the 30 minute wait before the bonus was added an additional agony, I am certain. Six and a half 1-15 mobs separating the top 4 after an hour. Wow.

Even so, the winning margin of 36 points on merged Fury, while close, was not close enough to make it into the top 10 of the all time closest finishes. That list has not changed much since I posted it in June last year, and not at all since the server merges:

Overall closest GRB winning margins!
1. 2 points - The Gurkha Empire - Lailah UoF 3/12-2011
2. 8 points - Czech Zealots - Teos UoF 5/26-2012
3. 10 points - NO RETURN - Etain UoF 10/22-2011
4. 13 points - -Reborn- - Etain AoL 12/10-2011
4. 13 points - DirtyLittleFreakz - Gaia UoF 2/11-2012
6. 15 points - Celestial Legion - Lailah AoL 9/24-2011
7. 17 points - DragonReign - Lailah AoL 7/21-2012
8. 18 points - DragonReign - Lailah AoL 6/30-2012
9. 19 points - .Redemption. - Lailah UoF 2/12-2011
9. 19 points - Requiem - Etain AoL 12/24-2011

Might be worth to note that the GRB lasted a bit past 60 minutes again.

On Merged Light, DragonReign became the fourth guild ever to break 71,000 points and finally beat their old Lailah record that had been standing since Oct 30th 2010. Congratulations!

Sad news for all GRB addicts, though. This was the first time since I started keeping records 123 weeks ago that Celestial Legion did not make it into the top 6. Which leaves sovereignty as the only guild left having ranked top 6 in all GRBs in that time. I really hope you guys will bounce back something fierce! Sad

On Phoenix, Immortals were firmly in the AoL driving seat as usual, while ChaosTheory on the Fury side had another guild finishing within 2,000 points of them for the first time in half forever.

One top 6 debut guild this week: .Dam nation. on PX Fury. Comeback guild of the week: RO.GUILD who returned to the Merged AoL top 6 after five weeks. Well done, both!

(I had to put that extra space in .Dam nation. as the name is filtered out by the site...)

New guild GRB records in the top 6 (note, guilds that are fresh to the ranks might have scored higher before, but not ranked in the top 6), old records from Lailah, Teos, Etain and Gaia carried over:

68308 Praetoriani - Merged UoF
68277 DirtyLittleFreakz - Merged UoF
57660 Blood Oath - PX UoF
19138 .Dam nation. - PX UoF
71129 DragonReign - Merged AoL
51044 Keepers of the Faith - PX AoL
29841 BG_GUARDS - PX AoL

New guild rank records in the top 6 (records from Lailah, Teos, Etain and Gaia carried over):

3rd: Keepers of the Faith - PX AoL
4th: Suicide Kings - PX UoF
6th: .Dam nation. - PX UoF

-Deicide-'s old Lailah record will forever remain the pre-merge record. The changes to the game and the general environment since then have upped the score potential a bit, so it's not really fair comparing the scores back then and now. 71,331 points back then was a massive achievement.

According to my stopwatch (yes I use a stopwatch with GRB because it provides some interesting real time data during the GRB) that yesterdays GRB went from blue screen at the start of the GRB to the end of the GRB ejection the total time was 1:00:45.51 seconds.

It is actually quite rare for a GRB to actually go 60 minutes exactly. It seems to be anywhere between +/- 1 minute. And yes, there are times that it is less than 60 minutes.

An extra minute in the GRB can easily give a guild an extra 1000 points. Kind of makes one wonder how uniform the GRB times are for different guilds.

80k would be persistence, not skill. You'd need max coverage from the start, and then for all those people to keep up the boring job for an hour.

Not impossible, but you need competition to make it. And the way this game is published, there are not enough competitive players left.
