12.13 Corp Power Rankings


While the history of contemporary planetary warfare is still being written, the truly elite corps appear to be rising to the top. After talking with a number of CEOs, capsuleers and witnesses to the combat simulations taking place in Morduspace we have generated the initial corporation power rankings. The New Eden community has spoken. At the moment its pretty obvious to those watching which groups are separating themselves from the rest of the pack.We used specific criteria when we ranked the corps but certain things eliminated groups from contention. While we took the communities opinions into account, we felt like raw performance in the tourney was important as well. Groups that had more defeats than victories were frowned upon a great deal. Expectations also factored in a great deal. For instance, while PRO didn't make our final rankings, few can dispute that they didnt exceed the expectations many had for them. Other groups did not perform up to expectations and their ranking suffered because of it. Without further delay, introducing the initial New Eden mercenary corp rankings.



1. Imperfects - The clear #1 mercenary corporation in New Eden as of press time.

2. Seraphim Initiative - If there is a group that can challenge for #1 it is SI. This highly organized group took the tourney by storm.

3. Zion TCD - Easily one of the best led corps at this early stage. We rated them above the ROFL corps because TCD is one clan rather than an alliance of them.

4. PFBHz - This recent corp merger seems to bring together the highest-tiered groups in ROFL. It is widely believed that the group formerly known as PFB were some of ROFL's peak performers.

5. WTF - This regional group exceeded expectations. They can easily build upon their tourney success at this stage.

6. The Southern Legion - Another group that exceeded expectations. They are now on the short list of notable merc corporations.

7. KEQ - Some may call this rating lower than expected, but there is still the widely held belief that this group benefited from seeding and being in the same bracket as an ally. They have ample opportunity to prove or disprove this in the future.

8. STB - The first of the 'nonparticipants'. STB may be the subject of many complaints but its our belief that they would have performed better than many of the groups that were included in the tourney.

9. Tritan Industries - Another 'nonparticipant' that is highly regarded. We doubt this group would have failed to perform in the tourney.

10. Betamax -While this group is a shell of its former self after defections [we previously rated them the best merc corp] They still have solid players and are another group that was built to perform in a competitive environment.

    3. You will see STB rise and badmouthers will be shut down, it's highly disturbibing the lack of respect check the leader boards again. Just like all big headed FPS players, egos are gonna crash and bring down empires.

    1. SYN should def. be on the list at 3 or 4. Drop Betamax, they cant field a competitive team. Who the hell is RG?

  6. syn = overrated. had 2 cracks at imps and got crushed both times.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. ^ agree. if PRO went negative in the tourney no one would call them top 10. same logic applies.

      Delete
    2. you do realize we (IMP), won; so any team that faced us in our bracket would of lost two times; so you can't hold that against SyN. We have even said, in corp they put up 2nd best challenge next to ROFL

      Delete
    3. as i said on the forums. if PRO had the same performance as SYN no one ranks them. they just didnt perform. esp bad considering they have been together longer than both groups.

      Delete
    4. no offense, PRO was trash compared to SyN. SyN got off the redline made pushes, got to objective,etc; whereas PRO didn't even get close to a letter to touch it and was redlined within 2min of the game starting.

      Just b/c someone lost to IMP twice shouldnt exclude them from ranking. This entire article shows how little information DustMerc tried to get on the matches. They only looked at who won, who lost, and how many games. They dont have any info on what progress the teams did in those games. As a loss can have very different variations.

      Delete
  7. yup, numbz talks about how comp they r in bf3 and all these other gms and they didnt even make final 4. been 2gether longer than imps and seraphim combined. talk is cheap bro

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. so u think they are better than imps?

      Delete
    2. fuuuuck noooo. im saying that if u listen to Numbz talk about how comp they are blahblahblah they should have been the top seed. got swept by imps twice. thats fail.

      Delete
    3. Link or it didn't happen, dont know about mavado, but pretty sure SyN was realistic and humble with its odds against imps

      Delete
    4. find ur own link noob. he goes on and on abt how many games they have competed in. they had the same record as PRO. lolsyn

      Delete
    5. if you check the Round Robin round; SyN did better then PRO; which is why they had to face IMP again.

      In all honesty, if SyN was in the other bracket (ROFL), it would of be very interesting to see who'd of placed IMP in the semi's ; as aside from ROFL, in the other US bracket, the teams were lacking compared to IMP

      Delete
    6. this i agree with. i wish rofl and syn were in the same bracket and that the scrub clans like pro and stb were in the one with imps.

      Delete
  8. KEQ and WTF? GTFOH!!!

  9. fame is great. but such a thing is not meant to last.

  10. Do interviews with other corporations! If they're in this half-assed top ten they they've had enough limelight. How about you talk to small groups and get their take on things?

    ReplyDelete
  11. r u fucking kidding? KEQ.

    Ok, its official, this blog is fucking fluff!

    Nice circle jerk bruce harmon.

    ReplyDelete
  12. I see these as a ranking of killing power, which keeps this list from being a complete piece of shit.
    One set of rankings won't do justice for many of the corps in this game out of beta. Some might have a greater political power, economic power, or killing power. Yes they are not distinct but your shortsightedness has not and will continue to not go unnoticed.

  15. i find i large hilarity in the syn argument 1 your dumb enough to not know that Gc is part of imp who have been together for as long if not longer than syn 2. pro im pretty sure they have been beat by syn not saying bro sucks but for you to place them above syn makes no sense, the clans that played syn in the tourney since this is where people are retrieving there info syn did not lose or even come close to losing to any of the other clans in its bracket.. if you thinks syn is so LOL and scrubby challenge there non talent corp and prove your theory....

    and word of advice but if the champs themselves confirm that someone is up to par or on a certain level how dumb do you sound to say imp is the best but there interpretation of competition is irrelivant? get good

      and to go back to my main point if were so shit and no good challenge us and stroke your epeens till you run the skin dry, all the talking but noone has played us? those that have acknowledge us.so man or women up and put your controller where your mouth is and dont worry were not afraid of a good old infantry only no proto suits LEGGO!!!

  20. feel Zion needs to drop theres not much to them and or tactics, if any, they use. if you use the shotgun and take 15 rounds at point blank and miss!!! your kinda in that special place of shit.

    dont quite understand the surprise in the tone of the article over SI's talent most knew before the tourney they were going places.

    STB doesnt feel like their around anymore even though their senior members are starting to transfer over.

    theres quite a few other corps who i think should be on the list cant really remember their names but can/should be on this list.

    ReplyDelete
  21. for the record, and true it took place in another game, but STB stomped KEQ 3 our of 4 games. Their lack of depth hasn't changed.

    1. cant be a record if its not tied to the game in question lolz

      Delete
    2. its funny because there talking about MAG and if you bother going to youtube to check the record KEQ has won versus stb and stb has won against keq equally it depends on who was on during that match and maybe some random factors like maybe a well placed grenade that broke the defenders line.

      Delete
    3. Not to mention the times where STB don't upload or link unlisted videos on YouTube games where they lost despite someone recording the game.
