Once again I’ve gotten distracted by other projects, and have run late, but at least I made it!
The Loyalists dragged themselves from a sink at the beginning of the week, but rose no higher and in fact dipped midweek. They have had a negative balance against all factions across the board for the whole week, in roughly equal measure. This is represented in all of their performance metrics, with TD7, TD30, and TD30 against all factions continuing to decline.
The Orks have maintained their strength against the Loyalists, but have not increased their holdings any. Losses to the forces of Chaos and the Eldar have shown up in a slow decline in territorial holdings over the week. WHile their TD7 has increased somewhat due to recent short term gains, their TD30 is struggling to hold even. Their performance against Loyalists continues to rise, but has fallen back against both Eldar and Chaos in the past week.
While the Eldar may have taken some hits from Chaos early on, they rebounded with a steady increase in holdings and a return to dominance. With their margins against Chaos and Orks remaining thin, most of their gains came from the Loyalists. While the recent weakening of their position against Chaos has shown a drop in their TD7, their TD30 remains strong. It is on the rise against Loyalists and Orks, and has flattened from its drop against Chaos. Their overall performance, although threatened by Chaos, remains in the fore.
Chaos had a strong start to the week, but fell back weakened by the Eldar. They remained strong against the Loyalists, and held a narrow margin against the Orks, but were unable to hold their dominance past the middle of the week. A flattening of performance metrics against Orks and Eldar has led to a short term drop in TD7, but their TD30 remains strong in general and against the Loyalists. Should it continue to rise at this rate, and the Eldar’s to drop, next week should see the Chaos dominating Arkhona for the first time since May last year.
