Well, that list is for consecutive weeks. Since I posted it, it has not altered significantly, although one or two Phoenix guilds have probably made their way into it by now. If I remember, I can put a revised list in the OP this weekend.

I CAN make a top 10 list of total weeks as #1 guild, but it will only be complete back to October 16th 2010, as the two years of GRBs prior to that would be before I started keeping records and were unfortunately never kept consistent track of (at least that I know of).

That said, the #1 ranks of the first half year or so of GRBs would be somewhat misguiding to have included in such a list even if I had the data, since back then your GRB score of the current week would be added to your GRB scores of all the previous weeks, making the total accumulation of points the basis of your guild's rank. I think (but might recall wrongly) that this was changed to the current system with the arrival of Ep4 in May(ish) 2009.

It was quite some time after EP4 - 9th July 2009, and I still consider that as the worst patch ever happened Confused

I wish Very Happy Nah, we weren't 1st until 2011...
But suddenly anyone could make a guild with a few people and go rank next week...
Before that, guilds had some tradition, they weren't reforming and renaming so often, people held closer together.
It was similar to PvP ranking, slowly climbing up in the ladder. It would suck to have kills resetted every week too Smile
Well I guess the top viewed (and replied to) thread of all time in Rants&Raves means something Very Happy

We were quite slow off the mark in old illuminati on Teos Light (which later became sovereignty). Nubs we were, we thought there wasn't any point in doing GRB if we couldn't afford a guild house, so pretty much every other guild had stolen a large march on us when we finally started doing them. So we weren't all THAT unhappy about the new system. Wink

I guess it always has 2 sides Smile
Still, it could have been wiped less often, like monthly or even yearly Very Happy

Scores January 5th

A full GRB again for all factions and servers, and guild records were tumbling all over. And a lot of action going on as well. Here's the lowdown on what we witnessed today:

- Destruction setting a new Merged Fury best with 68761, beating AFK's previous best with 400 points. They also got within a hair's width of beating the best ever Fury score from the old servers - a mere 84 points away. Well done - go get it next week!

- Close finishes on both sides on Merged - three guilds within 700 points for top spot on Fury, top four guilds within 1200 points on Light and only 57 points separating the top two there.

- All top 6 Phoenix guilds on both sides scoring more than 30,000 points for the first time.

- The first proper comeback we've seen for a while in any top 6: DirtyLittleFreakz squeezing into it for the first time in 5 GRBs.

- Ghost Division on PX Fury being this week's only debut guild - congratulations!

Adding to all that, I've now added two more lists in the OP of this thread - top 15 overall most GRB wins and top 10 overall longest unbroken runs as GRB winners (both covering the period I have kept records).

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:
68751 Destruction - Merged UoF
68372 AFK - Merged UoF
66642 DirtyLittleFreakz - Merged UoF
44536 Clock-Work - PX UoF
43336 Blood Oath - PX UoF
40915 Avalon - PX UoF
34422 Superior Circumstance - PX UoF
31389 Ghost Division - PX UoF
68604 -Eternity- Merged AoL
67764 SideBySide - Merged AoL
67200 Honorable-Knights - Merged AoL
43555 Grinder - PX AoL
40297 The Few The Proud - PX AoL
36162 ShadowDemon Society - PX AoL

New guild rank records in the top 6 (records from Lailah, Teos, Etain and Gaia carried over):
6th: Ghost Division - PX UoF
