It don't matter if you're black or white ♫

In preparation for the next round of PlanetWars, the five factions have been condensed into two, according to their alignments at the end of the previous round. Thus:

Machines, Cyber, Empire -> Synthetic Pact
Dynasty, Liberty -> Dynasty of Man

If you wish to have your clan moved to the other faction, please file a request in the comments thread :)

I wish to have my clan not be aligned to a faction at all.

Now the top 4 are all SynPact. Hopefully there should be some action now and not just another stalemate.

How about the Cybernetic Organism Regulated Empire against the Amalgamated Republic of Man?

Dynasty of Man looks shafted, their high elo players are both outnumbered 3:2 and possess lower elo on average

In teams top50, there's 18 Dynasty people, 5 neutrals, rest being Synthpact.

We can either try to recruit neutrals, convert synths, or prepare for the worst. :P

For the new planetwars season it would be nice if the mumble auto channel moving would work again :)

I have no problem about that, but Empire was merged with Dynasty, not machines.

I was joined to machines, though.
I like it here, lots of nice people.

Also, wasn't GBC conquering planets last season despite what is now machines opposing them?

Empire was split between Dynasty and Synth, Dynasty got ISP, who were almost all Dynasty/LH players last round anyway. Empire players who played in the last round are not going to want to join Dynasty, you're the ones who wiped them out...

Eyeballing the top 50 list, it looks like moving @[RD]Godde (#1 on teams ladder, 2586 Elo, comes with free SErank[RD]Znack (#48, 1808 Elo)) and NLrankBlackdutchie (#30, 1890 elo)'s clans to Dynasty would equalize things quite nicely.

I think grouping Godde and sfireman in the same faction will lead to massive stacks if you look at the current activity times. I'd move the Empire clans to Dynasty. This would even up the top 20 nicely and for 20-30 a few small clans can be shuffled around.

the color of Synthetic Pact is too indifferent of non-faction players. change something about this state...

Don't u overcontrol it right now? Thinking about who should join which faction to equalize things? I think everyone should decide to what faction he likes to go. Or is the balancer for PW an other one?

Sure, but a vastly imbalanced game is bad from a game-design perspective.

I guess if you don't like people having pushed around, you could consider converting yourself ;)

salty sak tears aside, balancing the teams to neuter the Dynasty rapetrain of last round is pointless, it dosn't exist anymore - most of the old GBC players are now inactive or in other clans.

In real gamewinning terms right now, sfiremans troll clan and mean machines are the biggest players, and the machines clan is like 3x the size. GBC is effectively just a buddy system for 3 guys

but you get some unreliable and mostly inactive pirates in exchange (causing random havoc)!
