Since the start of World 2, there have been many prominent tribes that made an impact on World 2 through diplomacy, military strength, or sheer size.
The following tribes are still present on world 2 and still maintain their influence over the world.
Aten is a powerful family tribe that controls clusters in the northeast and the southwest (as a result of the CE merge). It has participated in various military conflicts, including the PTT/Hatred-FTR war, TUBA wars, and RUM wars. It has recently been criticized for maintaining a neutral stance in the XiG-FTR war. Recently, it declared war against -CEG- and its affiliate tribes due to its failure to recognize the former CE tribes as part of Aten. Aten now owns about 1 in 4 villages in world 2
CDE - Culinary Delight EmpireEdit
The Culinary Delight Empire, also known as CDE, is a powerful and highly regarded elite tribe. It consists of two sister tribes, CAKE and PIE. It is filled with highly skilled players, perhaps the most notable being its highly popular leader bolaar, who led the XiGian armies in the XiG-FTR war, which some regard as being a turning point in the war. It is part of the Alliance of 5, a coalition against -CEG-.
-CEG- - CE GamersEdit
-CEG- is a powerful family tribe that is the result of a merger between XiG and StW. It controls large clusters in the west and the south. The merger has been held up to high scrutiny by the world 2 community because of its claims that it is a new tribe and thus is able to make new diplomacy (thus, casting out old diplomatic ties). This action resulted in the formation of a coalition, the Alliance of 5, against -CEG-. Note: -CEG- has broken up into the ST family and varius new stw tribes and new xig tribes due to mass abandonment and poor planning in the opening weeks of the Ao5 vs ceg war
HOT - The Holy Order of TruthEdit
The Holy Order of Truth, also known as HOT, is a powerful family tribe that controls large clusters in the east. It has historically held close alliances with FTR (now disbanded) and TW. As a result, it has participated in the PTT/Hatred Wars, TUBA wars, RUM wars, and most recently, the XiG war (until it signed a ceasefire) on the side of FTR. It is centrally governed and its tribes are organized by region. It is a member of the alliance of 5 against -CEG-.
RB - Random BloodEdit
Random Blood, also known as RB, is a family tribe that controls clusters throughout the world. Close to the end of the XiG-FTR war, it merged into the XiG family, forming XiGRB. However, after the war, when XiG merged with StW, RB broke away from the family and reformed as its own tribe. Recently, it is a member of the alliance of 5, a coalition against -CEG-.
TW - Tribal WarEdit
Tribal War, also known as TW, is a powerful family tribe that controls a large cluster in the core. Some of its branches are the result of a merger by CMFAM into TW. It has historically held close alliances with FTR (now disbanded) and TW. As a result, it has participated in the PTT/Hatred Wars, TUBA wars, RUM wars, and most recently, the XiG war (until it signed a ceasefire) on the side of FTR. It is a member of the alliance of 5 against -CEG-.
The following tribes that have made a large impact on world 2 have now ceased to exist, either through military defeat, disbandment, merging, or a significant reduction in size.
FTR - FlopTurnRiverEdit
FlopTurnRiver, also known as FTR, was perhaps one of the most dominant tribes to play world 2. At its height, it was able to defeat any tribe on world 2, for it had a number of close alliances, most notably HOT and TW. It held the number one spot in world 2 the longest to date. However, after the XiG-FTR war, the tribe disbanded. Its downfall consisted of some key players and leaders leaving the game, and the fact there wasn't room for a non-family tribe in TW world 2 anymore. The remains of the tribe merged into HOT and TW.
RUM - Regional Underground MovementEdit
The Regional Underground Movement, also known as RUM, was the largest family tribe ever to grace World 2. It can be described as a loose confederation of tribes that adopt the word RUM in their tag. Later in its lifespan, it was organized into regions, although the effort was seen by some to be too little, too late. They were also seen by some to be disorganized. Their downfall came about in the RUM wars, in which many of the world's world powers began to attack the RUM confederation, resulting in the destruction of many branches of the tribe. RUM currently exists as a significantly smaller tribal family and is still at war with Aten.
StW - St. WolvesEdit
St. Wolves, also known as StW, was a powerful family tribe controlling the northwest. It was formed from a merger between the Saints and the Wolves tribes. It fought in the XiG-FTR war on the side of FTR. After the war ended, StW merged with their former enemy, XiG, to form a powerful new tribe, -CEG-.
XiG - Xi GamersEdit
Xi Gamers, also known as XiG, was a powerful family tribe. At its height, it controlled large clusters in the southwest of World 2. It managed a ceasefire (and effectively, a draw) in the XiG-FTR war by signing ceasefires with TW, StW and HOT while being a contributing factor to the disbandment of FTR. After the war, XiG and a family tribe which had warred them, StW, merged to form what they called a new tribe, called -CEG-.
