WM


Semi Elite clans- Good players, good success. One or two top players

Apex
WG
Lynx


Strong clans- Starting to join the big boys. ;)

Master
Xs
Ahol


Skilled clans- Mostly good players, not much ladder success

Xcd
French
101st
Blitz


Large and competitive clans - Big clans, though with some skill.

And here is your analysis - I feel like JSA now


101st – Drop. Lynx starting means departure of best players. Still some good players in ladders though. Blowfly will lead them to glory.

20 – Remain. Continues to be ‘top’ clan on WL, dominance on RT ladder especially. Also helps that they have a legion of kowtowers.

Ahol – Drop. Do you ever see the AHOL tag on dashboard page these days?

Apex – Rise. Dead Piggy joining and strong performance in current clan league. Also helps that they know latin, makes them think they’re cool/

BIA – Drop. Remnants of CPU clan. Are they a dead clan?

Blitz – Remain. Departure of Swimming Potato. Still one or two good players. Caught cheating in clan league!!! :O

BR- No comment. All I know is that their leader is Mickey Mouse.

French – Remain. One or two strong players, solid performance in clan league.

Gladiator – Remain. Still shamelessly farming wins in those open games.

GG – Rise. A row of players taking #1 on 1v1 ladder recently pushes them high up. Departure of Odin, however.

Illuminati – Rise. Taken over by some war council. Don’t hear from them these days.

LEA – New. A good big clan, emphasising on 5v5 games, dedicated leaders. Reputation would be better without Lawlz and Mysterman though. Since Mysterman has about 3 brain cells and Lawlz just drops negative reputation bombs on every clans without even trying.

LN- Rise. Havent heard much since the RP clan bashing frenzy months ago. Seems to be doing fine.

Lynx – Rise. Apollo continues to charm good players to his clan, not doing very well on clan league, but constant ladder success. Also JSA continues his propaganda lists and posts, not that anyone believes him.

Master – Rise. Took in slammy and okay performance in clan league. TWM is pretty good. MoD also took in #2 on seasonal. Not much success on 1v1 or 2v2 ladder to make them a top clan.

Maxtroll – New. Biggest clan in Warlight. Accepts all the cool trolls, and those with high levels. ;) Trolls and stalls with pride. A few very good players.

REGL – Remain. Good clan leader and clan page. Also Hennns and Min34 on 2v2 ladder brought some glory. Havent heard much otherwise.

RP – Still the most famous clan for roleplay and diplo games. Some people have strange tastes.

S Ninja- No comment. Only thing I know is that one of their players have been level 19 for the last 300 years, think his name is gg or something.

T4R- Drop. Surrendered to Alliance. WWII over.

VIW- Remain. Havent heard much from clan. Many good players though, chicken, awesomeguy, pushover etc

Warlighters – Rise. Most hardcore clan leader in WL. A few good players, though they’re mostly alts (nauz, robin hood etc). Panda is bringing them glory.

WG - Drop. Little performance in any ladders these days. Solid performance in clan league. However, getting overtaken by other clans. Chris will think something up.

WM – Remains. Little performance in any ladders too. However Gnuffone winning the seasonal and dominating RT ladder brings them up.

XCD – Drop. Slammy left. Jehovah and Gentleman are good players to name but a few.

XS- Rise. Kenraali is a recent top 10. Ra is a very good player and mapmaker also.

That's sheer silliness.

Apex and WG are both much better than GG as far as I'm concerned, and both better than WM as well.

"Warlighters – Rise. Most hardcore clan leader in WL. A few good players, though they’re mostly alts (nauz, robin hood etc). Panda is bringing them glory."

And you're a stubborn fool. I'm not in WL, nor would I join WL, ever. Silver's played WL longer than me, I'm certainly not his alt. Hell, I'm on the 2v2 ladder and 1v1 ladder right now on THIS account, you can watch the games and see we play nothing alike.

Agreed. Gnuff alone is not enough to be placed on the top shelf.

And apex is on par with 20, in fact 20 would instantly recruit half the clan if they would join.

Bleh, Pulsey, I think you have as many errors as JSA! :P Warning, harsh and probably incorrect opinions follow...

GG has very good players but is overrated and declining IMO. JV in particular though has gotten way better! I would put them into tier 2, not tier 1.

Apex and WG (counting only their top players) are better than you give them credit. Tier 1 instead of tier 2. I would argue that Apex might be the best clan in warlight. But clan league will decide that :) As for WG, they probably have the largest difference in skill from top to bottom of the top clans.

In your strong clans category, one clan (Master) is not like the others (AHoL/XS) and should be rated higher. Blitz should be in this group I think.

XCD and 101st should not be in skilled clans category. Definitely overrated. Clan league will show this.

French Community should be in the "large clan" category, in that they have awesome players as well as pretty terrible players. Which is cool cause that's how VIW is, not all of us need to be competetive :P I think you may be underrating VIW but we will see how clan league turns out. Group B is tough tho.

Warlighters are definitely underrated, and you haven't been paying attention to their changing membership. They've trimmed the fat and acquired some good players. Again, clan league will show this.

I think you should group BR with the large clan category. Giovanni and Furacao in particular are quite good. They just don't care about being competetive in clan league i think :P

This is just what quickly comes to mind.

I think you are off base on WG. We are not down on ladders, just not participating much. Tenshi placed 3rd in last season with two suspected or known cheaters ahead of him. Summer is always near top of strat ladder. Some are playing alts instead on ladder, some not at all. We are busy running most leagues on here, nobody has gotten worse (well i am probably worse at strat right now).

Not sure if you guys realized, but I have no affliation with most of the top clans. I have brushes in the past with Blitz, Warlighters, Lynx and Apex. Apart from that, GG doesn’t pay me to put them above WM. Nor do I have any personal reason to underrate WG.

GG has had 3 players take #1 in the last month. No clan has such success recently.

WG has only one player coming in and out of top 10 these few months, the only thing that made me consider them as a top clan last time was them winning the clan league, which they arent doing so far.

WM doesn’t have much success either. But Gnuffone winning Seasonal and #1 on RT keeps them an elite clan. At least WM has some ladder success recently, compared to the no ladder success of WG. Swimming POtato is also doing well in RT and 1v1.

The best of Apex players are semi-retired. The most active members these days are Dead Piggy, Frank, Wid, Miyagi, Lolowut, Noob, with only 1 who has ever taken #1 on the 1v1 ladder. No offense but this team definitely don’t qualify as best on WL.

Ladder wise, GG triumphs over Apex, WG and WM. GG didn’t pay me to say that.

Since most good players these days are in the ‘top’ clans, I thought it would be more appropriate that a relatively good player from none of these best clans make a list. Of course everyone wants to be top. I am possibly biased in a few areas but I think the top part of the list is a pretty fair and accurate represntation of these last few months.

Warlighters probably deserve a bit higher but most of the ‘Prolighters’ are alts, so doesn’t really count.

Lawlz you drop negative reputation bombs on LEA. No debate about that.

GG's recent ladder success as you put it is underwhelming to say the least.

Angry Beavers hit rank 1 by stalling, Michael and BraaK hit rank 1 with incredibly low ratings because everyone good left the ladder.

GG is in no way, shape, or form better than Apex or WG. They might be better than WM, but WM is also worse than WG and Apex.

You claim WM gets a nod for Gnuffone winning a season and being rank 1 on the RT ladder. Surely WG gets just as much as one for Summer bouncing around in the top 5-10 on the 1v1 ladder, being top 3 on the RT ladder, and being poised to break the all-time record for highest rating ever on the 2v2 ladder, without resorting to stalling or cheating like the previous record holder.

As for:

"The best of Apex players are semi-retired. The most active members these days are Dead Piggy, Frank, Wid, Miyagi, Lolowut, Noob, with only 1 who has ever taken #1 on the 1v1 ladder. No offense but this team definitely don’t qualify as best on WL. "

Quit looking at ranks you incompetent sheep. It's obvious to anyone that watches and analyzes the games that Widz and Frank despite never hitting rank 1 are far better at strat 1v1 than all three of the GG members that recently hit rank 1.

I disagree. With the exception of Braak whom I"ve never played, I believe Jupe and Beavers are better than Widsasz and Frank.

Gnuff taking #1 on Seasonal and RT ladder is more impressive than Summer being ranked around top 10 in 1v1 and RT ladder. If you disagree then you live up to your name.

You tell me to stop looking at stats and ranks? How else am I supposed to accurately rank clans? By people's perceptions about them?

GG don't pay me to sell them. I'm just saying what I think. Sounds like you're Nauz/ Silver to me.

" Summer Not Ranked with a rating of 2189. Summer's profile
Best rating ever achieved: 2216. Best rank ever achieved: 2nd
"

Is not "around" the top 10. It's rank 2.

Gnuffone wouldn't be rank 1 if he wasn't afraid to play anyone good.

Example: Records vs. top clans:

Lynx:
Gnuffone: 5-6
Summer: 6-1

WM:
Gnuffone: 4-1
Summer: 3-2 (includes 1-1 vs Gnuff)

Apex:
Gnuffone: 0-2
Summer: 2-0

WG:
Gnuffone: 1-1 (both vs. Summer)
Summer: 2-1

GG:
Gnuffone: 1-0
Summer: 0-0

20:
Gnuffone: 2-5
Summer: 2-1

So, combined vs. the top 6 clans Gnuff is 13-15, Summer is 17-5. Yeah, his RT ladder run is clearly way more impressive. Not.

Which games are informing your opinion Pulsey? Widz especially has some great games on the ladder. To say that ctrl alt del is better detracts massively from the credibility of your list. Judging a player by their rank is a lazy substitute for looking at their games and playing with them.

No. I've played all 4, on 1v1s and team games, though not admittedly not many with Wid, Jupe and Frank. Never played with Wid on team games.

Personal experience tells me Ctrl is better than Wid on 1v1s, Jupe better than Frank on team games. Or so I feel.

1v1s

Ctrl > Wid > Jupiter > Frank

Team Games

Jupiter > Frank > Ctrl

Anyway I'm not going to bother promoting players or a clan i'm not even part of. You can bicker among yourself. I'l publish a new guide in a few months :)
