Gratz Sov.

Seems you have been very busy Smile

Sorry I have been in absentia. Still working on my thesis - thought I should drop in and say hi. Low and behold, ep 6, lvl 80 and merged servers! Guess I better update my software and see if my toons are still there.

Have fun!

Scores March 16th

Looking like the PDT to PST change (daylight saving time adjustment) threw a number of guilds a bit, in particular on Merged Fury, as the top 6 there dipped somewhat overall in scores.

That said, it certainly did not throw ChaosTheory on Phoenix Fury off balance, as they romped on to a new server best of 64293 points, a score that would have put them in fifth on Merged Fury - which is the first time a Phoenix guild has achieved a score that would have made it into one of the Merged server top 6s. It was also a 2,400 point improvement of PX AoL's Immortals previous server record. Well done!

Merged Fury was not as closely fought as last week (that'd take some doing), but the winning margin was still inside 800 points there.

The other closely fought battle happened at a slightly unexpected quarter - Phoenix Light. For the first time, two guilds finished with more than 60,000 points there, and they did so with 606 points separating them.

Comeback guild of the week: Chaotic Misfits on Merged Fury returning to the top 6 after six weeks. Debut guilds in the top 6: BlueMoon and Forsaken Knights of Phoenix Light. Congratulations, all! ^^

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:

68995 Nights Fury - Merged UoF
64293 ChaosTheory - PX UoF
52830 Ghost Division - PX UoF
61080 Exodus - PX AoL
27543 BlueMoon - PX AoL
27278 Forsaken Knights PX AoL

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

5th: BlueMoon - PX AoL
6th: Forsaken Knights - PX AoL

March 23rd scores

A couple of closely contested #1 spots, a comeback guild, a new member of the 70k club, another new top 6 guild, a pretty interesting GRB overall.

Merged Fury were back to their old closely fought selves, as only 153 points separated the top two, and ChaosTheory had a close call on maintaining their unbeated record by winning with a mere 475 points on PX Fury.

-Eternity- on Merged Light finally and well deserved made it into the 70k club, being only the sixth guild ever to achieve that. Well done!

Honorable Knights were the comeback guild of the week, ranking top 6 again after being away for four weeks. Top 6 debut guild was Confederates on PX Fury. Congratulations both!

Now for the bad(?) news. Overall, scores had a declining trend. The score required to make top 30 on Merged Fury used to be about 40,000 points. It is now down to 33,000. Merged Light has maintained a top 30 barrier around 50,000 points, but were down to 48,000 today. For the first time in a good while, PX Light failed to rank 30 guilds, and the number of PX Fury guilds ranking fell again.

A decline in scores might not mean the population is thinning. It could also mean that more guilds are merging in order to rank. There can also be outside factors affecting the scores, like holidays, exams, disasters, etc. And of course it can depend on how long the GRB actually lasts, as it is rarely exactly 60 minutes. But the latter doesn't affect the number of guilds ranking, nor does it explain why Merged Fury now requires fewer points to rank. So, I guess it is just one piece of the big puzzle.

Anyways, I am semi-rambling. On with the regular program:

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:

59907 Blood Oath - PX UoF
25786 Confederates - PX UoF
70520 -Eternity- - Merged AoL
62668 Immortals - PX AoL
51977 Keepers of the Faith - PX AoL
33942 BlueMoon PX AoL

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

6th: Confederates - PX UoF

I think that the mis-alignment across the globe in shifting to summer time has had some impact. Not only did the time shift catch some people out but it also moves GRB into a really bad time slot for the UK player base in particular - i.e. when many families are sitting down to eat.

Quite true. People still ask when OI opens or MM starts three weeks after the change occurred. Bet the confusion will be even greater when people in Europe start catching up after making their own time adjustments this weekend...

March 30th scores

Well, something is definitely going on population-wise. Of course, it IS Easter, which might account for some of the reduced scores, but while Merged Light held their own in terms of scores, Merged Fury took a sharp nosedive. PX Fury saw only 21 guilds rank, which is the lowest in a long time.

Regardless of that, we got some tight fights this week as well, and as usual Merged Fury were providing the thrills, with a mere 140 points separating the top 2. For the first time in weeks though, it got somewhat close on Merged Light as well, with 500 points in it between the top 2.

ChaosTheory extended their unbeaten run to 28 weeks on PX Fury, and are edging ever closer to the all time record.

Comeback guild of the week was undoubtedly The Dark Razers on Merged Fury, returning to the top 6 after 14 weeks! Welcome back! ^^

And we had a guild making its top 6 debut as well - RomaniaFury on Merged Fury. Or ... was this their top 6 debut after all? If this is the old RomaniaFury from Gaia, it would be their first top 6 ranking in nearly two years - I wonder if anyone can confirm this for me? Still, even if it is their top 6 debut or the ultimate comeback, well done!

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:

61761 RomaniaFury - Merged UoF *
35603 S.W.A.T. - PX UoF
71735 DragonReign - Merged AoL
56121 Keepers of the Faith - PX AoL
51353 The Demigods Of Olympia - PX AoL
37065 BlueMoon - PX AoL
31448 Forsaken Knights - PX AoL

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

3rd: S.W.A.T. - PX UoF
6th: RomaniaFury - Merged UoF *

* If RF is the old Gaia Fury guild of the same name, they would not have set new score and rank records, as their ranked first twice and scored 64770 at their best on old Gaia Fury.

Wow, that's a major comeback, then. I hate to correct you, but DLF did win Merged GRB on October 27th last year - it WAS one of the GRBs with a restart due to server crashing though, so this would be DLF's first win in an uninterrupted Merged server GRB.
