Before the season begins, I want to overview each clan and their run-up to this season. Today's post is about Hydra.

HOUSE HYDRA:


Season 7 Results:
ILLUMINATI:

Division D1
148 points (2nd Place)
AWF:
Division D2
168 points (3rd Place)

House Hydra is a new clan, born of the Houses ILLUMINATI and Appalachian Warlight Federation (AWF). The leader of ILLUMIANTI, Great Expanse, led a diplomatic mission deep into the Appalachian wilderness, through crooked mountains, haunted woods to the leader of AWF Blortis and his pet hummingbird Benjamin628. Great Expanse, cold, skin white as milk and heart cold as stone, spared with the shirtless, drunk but wily leader of AWF. It seemed like talks could fall apart at any moment, the hummingbird Benjamin flinting left and right constantly trying to fly in 3 directions at once, until Blortis swatted him away. But both sides knew, together they were strong then apart. They managed to bridge their differences and they were wed in a lavish ceremony; AWF got drunk and picked on the hummingbird Benjamin628 with ILLUMINATI staring stony face at this new crowd wondering what Great Expanse had gotten them into.

House Hydra was destined to be in Division D of Season 8 but turmoil among the older, more prestigious houses would change their fate. House Hydra was paired with their rivals House CORP and M'House M'Hunters of Division D1 again. The old guard of House ILLUMINATI were wary of their meager victory in the previous seasons and saw Season 8 as another long, drawn out battle. Alas, House Yin Yang promoted to C when AHoL dropped out of Clan League. Though this would just be the beginning of Hydra's rise to Division C!

The groups were set, but Division A was taking forever to finish. The Houses were restless, thirsting for battle, blood and glory! When the templates were pre-maturely released, the squabbling began. Templates were picked apart! Tables were tossed, swords were drawn! But the High Lord of Clan League management ChrisCMU acquiesced to the recount a miscast ballot, the votes were recounted and the final templates were chosen. The squabbling took a toll on High Lord ChrisCMU, deciding now was the time to step down. The upstart Chancellor of Manager's League, off of the success of the inaugural season, rose to lead Clan League as High Lord. Long may he reign! The disquiet over the voting system simmered but in the background of this, the Houses began to fall.....

House BR, a collection of rowdy, dancing Brazilians had danced their last dance as they bowed out of Clan League. Their clan had grown quiet, succumbing to greyscale. Stone, undancing, and un-fun Brazilians. With this turn of events, House Hydra was thrust in Division C, Blortis beat his motor oil greased chest, roaring with satisfaction as Great Expanse tented his fingers on his stone throne, threw back his head and cackled, "Our time as come....Peace out M'Hunters and CORP! We're freeeeee!"

To Be Continued....

No offence to anyone in B. But I don't think this is the case. C is packed with good n00bs.

Note: As with the first post, the overview is accurate but I have taken some liberties to write a more interesting story. Not everything is 100% true.

House M'Hunters:


Season 7 Results:
Division D1
147 points (3rd Place)

M'House M'Hunters is a large clan filled with decent, hard working players trying to better the community as well as big personalities, (cough) arrogant (cough). However, One of M'House M'Hunters most prominent players is the Norman the Troll. Norman towers over his peers, twice as tall, an odour that would kill a skunk, greyish-green skin, and an ability to ignore all facts in front of him! But M'Hunters isn't a clan of trolls, but of mortal men

M'Hunters only joined Clan League in Season 7, entering with a strong lineup and a proclamation: "Division D1's promotion spot is our bitches!" But M'Hunters, ILLUMINATI, and CORP locked horns with each other and stumbled to a practical tie, only 5 points separating 2nd from 4th as House Lu Fredd stayed out of the way to claim victory. With their bravado smashed, M'Hunters was stuck in an impossible group for Season 8 with Houses ILLUMIANTI, AWF, CORP, Yin Yang, General Chou's and Olympus; what to do next? Between seasons, the pale, cold Great Expanse and oiled up Blortis were wed in the union of AWF and ILLUMINATI but the new House of Hydra remained as immoveable obstacle ranked 1 point above M'Hunters. The M'Council of M'Hunters convened with M'Grand M'Master AI as its leader. AI slunk into the chambers, his short legs shuffling on the stone floor, garbed all in black. "Hydra is a problem for M'Hunters domination of Clan League, and they must be destroyed! One way is to rank as high as possible on the ladder using any means possible! Then...", suddenly AI is cut short when a crow flies in and hits him on the head. The crow carries a message telling the council of BR dropping out and a promotion spot becoming open. Before AI can say anything Norman is on his way to the forum.

Norman lumbered up to the Warlight forum, a beautiful building clad in dark grey granite and red marble accents, where the pale Great Expanse was arguing before the High Lord of Clan League, ChrisCMU, and the other Ministers in support of Hydra promoting. But Norman enters the room, children scream at his appearance, women faint and men rush forward with their swords and bows drawn. Norman shouts over everyone, arguing against Hydra promoting, wanting them to stay where they are. Great Expanse narrows his eyes, snarls and starts yelling back as Norman continues to shout down all that oppose him. The High Lord calls for order, striking his gavel until Minister Ollie shuts down discussion, calling shame on everyone for their behaviour! All in the room chant "SHAME! SHAME!" Alas, the promotion spot goes to House Hydra. But Norman isn't defeated, he can never be defeated!

M'Hunters M'Council convenes again, AI starts, "Norman, you know you were supposed to argue for M'Hunters to promote...." but yet again a crow flies in and hits AI on the head. AI reads the message that Lu Fredd has dropped out of Clan League and the council celebrate! HUZZAH! House M'Hunters promotes to Division C! The M'Council has successfully maneuvered into Division C and is one step closer to glory! AI smirks, saying softly "Now the war begins with Hydra." Norman roars in agreement, lifts his club and smashes the floor twice! "You killed two M'Council of M'Hunters members Norman!" AI protests but Norman is already back in the Warlight forums. M'Hunters continues its ascent in Clan League but further dropouts will affect Division C and the future of Clan League as we know it....

To be continued....

With Corp vs M'Hunters vs Hydra this is the equivalent of shoving shoving three Wolves into a cage match to fight to the death. VS seems the favorite to promote and so only one Clan can move on to Group B. The Rivalry ends here!

Division C Predictions:




So as expected the picture is both clear and muddled at the same time. M'Hunters and VS are the two clans widely expected to finish first with M'Hunters overall having higher predictions then VS. The interesting thing I noticed for VS that people think they will end up 1st or 4th with 2nd and 3rd being less likely. So there are two camps that either think VS will dominate or possibly be an also ran. I don't know which group I agree with yet.

From a technical standpoint, Hydra is predicted 'above' CORP but its so marginal that its an effective tie. CORP has a wide area of predictions whereas Hydra has been predicted most to end in 3rd.

Now BIA and LEA. Well, pretty much everyone agrees on where BIA and LEA will finish. BIA had a very small group of players predict them doing well but I am a bit skeptical of their picks. One player that put BIA higher then 5th, but they put CORP as 6th and all the other picks were all over the place so maybe take it with a grain of salt. And bless their heart, one person thought LEA would finish in fourth! They're riding high now!



The above image was made from the Clan League 8 Prognostic thread from 28 players:

CORP (OxtheAutist, onoma94, zephryum, Tjoex), French Community (Phaeril), Blitz (wakanarai, KKND), Hydra (Great Expanse), Hawks (let's fight), The Lost Wolves (kntye, wolf_japan, Semicedevine), Lynx (ZeroBlindDragon, Arkanton), 101st (Tac(ky)tical, PanagiotistheGreekFreak, TeamGuns), Apex (13CHRIS37), M'Hunters (TBest, AyanM), Icelandic Turtles (Buns157, Oh), Veni Vidi Vici (Nox), REGL (Min34), TJC (Rikku), AceK

A Message from the Scorekeeper:



As Clan League begins, I want to wish everyone luck in the coming season! I wish each clan a good fight, and that we keep things civil! :)

But I was reading through Division D1 of last season and I posted this rather interesting item that I hope give perspective going into this season:

Since Illuminati is in 4th I feel like I'm a bit more objective about the situation then Lu Fredd (none of them positing here) and CORP (they've got their hands all over this thread). But with M'Hunters holding a 20 point lead over Lu Fredd and 23 points over CORP, all three having a similar max point ceiling, it is going to take a serious crash by M'Hunters to blow this.

And if I had to choose which of the three clans leading to get promoted to would be M'Hunters.


This isn't a dig at M'Hunters but a cautionary tale to all clans that while things may seem down or you seem to be crushing things, just be patient. Crazy things happen in clan league so get ready for the ride.
