Server 180 Update
427 has jumped onto the top of the leaderboard early with a full alliance based in Saxony. I am rather unfamiliar with the host or any of the names listed in their intro, so I can't really vouch for talent. They have five players in the top 50 on the server, so there is a few that have coined it up a little. Time will tell, however I don't predict they will last long as full alliances (even with a sister and blues already) usually fall to drama. With only 13k prestige per player and 1.4 cities per player, it's not really that impressive, yet.
33 is in second place, close behind 427. Let by Chitonu,with Ernie, Strife, XpliciT and others they have some good players there. I would expect to see them stay around although their member count does seem to be climbing. Their city count is closing in on two per player already. They also average 16k prestige per player, although I have full faith that there are several alts in that alliance. No info yet to where they are based.
69, as most probably expected, is close to the top of the leaderboards. They sit in third with only 27 members (my 2k prestige account that I'm not really playing doesn't exactly count) and average nearly three cities per player. The coin here is real, as they also average 47k prestige per player after just 20 hours. As long as people stick around and don't sell off, I think they will be the alliance to beat on this server. They are spread out all over the server, lacking a formal "home state."
Royals sits right behind 69 down by only 50k prestige. They do have a full alliance, averaging 10k prestige per player and 1.3 cities per player. Once again, I do not know the host or really any of the other members so we'll see how things go as the server progresses. They are based in Tuscany
Rounding out the top five is 427's sister alliance 428. That's a lot of flipping people in Saxony. They average 1.3 cities per player and 10k prestige per player as well. Another full alliance, don't know any names.
808 sits at the 10 spot with 25 members, nearing two cities per player and 24k prestige per player. This is a decent little alliance and I would imagine very experienced. I know a few people in here and they are good players. As they get going, I would watch out for them whereever they are.
I'm not going to worry too much about this part as the server is still so early on, it's mainly just coin putting the players on top of the prestige board.
As again, it's really too early for this section.
Ernie is the first one to a 200 attack hero, and it has a decent poly and intel as well. Lucky mars.
Server seems good enough so far, people still joining up and there seems to be some good competition among alliances. I'll update again at some point.
