Clan dominates towers?

Post by burnemwood » Wed Mar 31, 2010 4:46 pm

Pretty simple topic -- apologies if it comes off as blunt and/or ignorant:

I started back up again recently and from the look of things, Clan is dominating the tower game. Is this the norm?

Clan domination of RK1 towers is a recent-ish development. Omni had dominated towers and Tarasque on RK1... oh... about last year or so. I don't know if this is the way things are now or not, but every so often Omni knocks down the Clan side XP a bit, so I think the struggle goes on. :)

I don't know about RK2, since I've never rolled a toon there before.

generally on rk2 clans do dominate, but they get lazy...
and during some periods omnis do start hittin back really hard all very well coordinated, and then either make neut orgs or get neuts to plant them just so people think twice about attacking them... lately though, clans have started to get wiser and realize that sadly most of the neut orgs on rk2 are just omni players in disguise...

On RK1, the major Omni orgs who previously dominated the Notum Wars apparently have dwindled into inactivity. Without their presence, the Clan have been able to conquer towers with little to no opposition. The clan have remained very well coordinated with multiple organizations involved in zergs.

On a related observation about the markets, I've noticed that my Omni buyers have noticeably declined over the past year or so. Typically I've known Omni players to be from the USA, and Clan players to be from Europe. It could be that the US players have slowly lost interest in the game. While Europeans have remained interested. It is also a fairly common situation that when friends leave an MMO, the person will likely lost interest in AO...and this has a domino effect. This is my theory for why Clan are currently dominating the world.

it's funny because on rk2 when omnis strike they're very well coordinated between multiple orgs, but when it's clan they're all very scattered and it's usually only one person at a time unless it's tl7...
unfortunately the laziness of clan pvpers or lack of wanting to assist in towers drives me insane... mainly because i am usually that one person anywhere under tl3...
i would say clan have about 2/3 of towers in rk2 and that's only really due to it seeming like clan has more people and coordination for tl5+ while lacking under tl3 and although we do still win those about 40% of the time (since we seem to have a few really good twinkers), i haven't seen many other clans in tl 1 or 2 at any point in the past year...

and btw, i'm not sure the continental observation is accurate... i know that there are allot of clans from the US and europe, but as one might expect "typically" they're usually from countries where society is oppressive (a psychological backlash) whereas i see more omnis coming from countries that are more loose like canada... at least that's my breakdown for rk2...

and yeh there definitely is a domino effect at work here, and in the US people treat allot of games like a flavor of the month (side effect of the society) and people seem to get bored somewhat easily... the US has allot of dedicated players but not nearly as many as europe, largely because as an effect of their societies they are much more likely to dig deeper into a game and see it for what it is than to just drop it after a couple weeks...
