ECS Poll

Archived from groups: (More info?)

And now it is time for this year's first ECS (Empire Championship Series)
poll. The poll is based only upon the performance of the alliances in the
Twisted Mind 2K4 game. And like its lesser important cousin, the BCS, the
ECS is composed of several computer rankings, polls created by longstanding
Empire beat reporters, and three dunk coeds as the University of Southern
North Dakota at Hoople (forgive me Prof. Schickele).

Anyway, first the power chart:

For those of you who are not aware of the alliance rules in this version
of Twisted Mind, players were forced into allying with their start island
co-habitator. They had no choice in this matter and they are at war with
everybody else.

On to the rankings. As mentioned, they are an average of a conglomeration
(oooooh, that's a big word) of several measuring sticks that I will never

Ranked 6th in the ECS is Tiki/Temekula. It's been a hardy showing by
these two and they may be rewarded with an invitation to the Toilet Bowl
on December 30th in Camden New Jersey.

Moving up zero spots to 5th is MunchMunch/Iceland. These two went
down swinging with all the fight and spunk of live bait. Enjoy the holidays
at home with your families, guys.

The fourth spot in the polls is actually occupied by a viable alliance.
Well, at least one country is viable. FodderLLC/Sealab is a very peculiar
alliance. Sealab went AWOL for a few days and FodderLLC went on a self
preservation takeover. FodderLLC may just have enough ECS points to
qualify to play against himself in the Gemini Bowl in Twinsburg, Oh.

Of the top three alliance groups, all of them are top rated in at
least one of the polls making up the overall score. And the differences
between the three groups is staggeringly close. The third place team is
Enron/Paranoia. Said the team coach in the weekly teleconference call
"Next week we play the Illinois/Northwestern alliance. So we'll be able to
rest our regulars and be ready for the big homecoming game next weekend."

The number two spot is held by Stardust/Thistle. They complained
bitterly that the ECS poll did not take into account the proclivity of
their female civs to grow facial hair. One higher representative even
went so far as to say "What kind of lack of academics program are they
running over there at the ECS? Next thing you know they will not even
be looking at how much beer we spilled on our jerseys!"

And if you haven't figured it out yet by process of elimination, the
top spot this week is held by Manetheren/Limbo. "We owe it all to our fans
that week in and week out pack the stadium" said one assistant coach.
"The guys really rise up when the alliance fight song is sung - F&^K You,
F&^K You, F&^K You, F&^K You, F&^K You and that ugly girl you came with."

Can't wait to see what the poll will look like next week.
