Back at it again with a special edition of the judgement game – hosted by your favorable host and only writer because nobody knows how to write words, but will write essays on discord, Max! Today we are going to take an in-depth look at Oblivion – that alliance everyone always forgets about until they are destroying your nations and then disappear into…..Oblivion.
Oblivion isn’t some new alliance that has blessed this game with affirmative action – no – they are boring old news. They’ve graced this world with their presence back in the good days of PW and have come back, maybe with a little bit less grace than before, but definitely are here to go against the grain and shake things up a bit – generally to just do shit that other alliances in this game are afraid to do and that’s bash some skulls and go back home. In this lovely and exciting game of PW that keeps us all insanely engaged and at the edge of our seats, we deal with alliances that really don’t do shit while promoting they are being ‘dynamic’ and that ‘changes are happening’ – but they are really just sitting on their hands while stacking nations on false promises and clogging the progression of the game.
Lets take a super quick look at Oblivion before we progress even further into this trash fest. Oblivion is ranked 63 out of 248 alliances – anything past that 30 mark is probably already trash and then anything past that 50 mark you just know is a pile of stinky garbage, so we can get that one out-of-the-way fast – Oblivion is trash – at least by community standards. The best thing about Oblivion is they are a 7 nation alliance and they still manage to fuck larger alliances up – sure – those alliances can claim they only attack inactive nations who ‘weren’t ready’ (*cough* Fulcrum from BC) but when you look at the thtatithtics of the matter there really shouldn’t be an argument against Oblivion – regardless if they hit inactive nations, it was YOUR choice and your choice alone to keep inactive nations sitting in your alliance, you know inactives are free game for raiders. When Oblivion went on the offensive and hit BC – for what seemed like an opportune hit, they did a good chunk of damage. Let’s take a look.
Oblivion launched 20 offensive wars on Bad Company and received a whopping 5 retaliation wars – in this little battle, Oblivion hit BC for $1.9 billion worth of damage while only receiving $435 million. BC asked allies for help in the matter, but The Island was still recovering from war and surprisingly enough, a war with Oblivion – who knocked us the fuck out. So, when you go on the PR offensive saying that Oblivion is shit and they only did that much damage because they attacked inactive nations – well, take a look at this gif of my good friend DJ Khaled – you played yourself. Now, the reason I’m writing this up is because Ockey mentioned that I didn’t judge his alliance or call him trash and although we might have a history with each other – there is nothing really trashy about him or Oblivion.
You could say that attacking innocent people in the game is trashy, but that shit has gone on since the beginning – take a look at all the pirate alliances that popped up, arrgh is trash now, but they used to be something. Y’all old folks remember princess bubble gum and and MAGA alliance? Good shit. You also might think that the image to the right is what I think of Ockey coming back and starting an alliance again and using the same damn theme without an ounce of creativity or public presence, but that’s actually me. Creating a few alliances that were seemingly good, but with bad decisions failed miserably – the only alliance that I like out of my creations were InGen (bad mistake turned Nuclear Knights turned garbage) and The Island which I already labeled as a ‘should merge’ judgement. I believe Ockey is the proof that it is difficult to come back and hold your ground – but it is possible to recycle and old alliance and just do what the fuck you want when you want to which many others have failed at (tEST).

During our recent war with Oblivion, Arrgh asked them to come help because they couldn’t do it on their own. Without Oblivion’s help, they would have just been mounted by us and that would have been the end of that. Oblivion swoops in at a moments notice, does damage quick, and is gone before you can even put your war paint on.
Oblivion – Rating: Apex Champion
There are very few alliances that I will talk highly of. In my rundown of the top 30 only one made the cut, Church of Spaceology led by Ripper and now Oblivion – who’s in the 60s.
Tune in next time for WMT rippin’ through alliances 31-60 – this is gonna be some micro fun.
