For the record I also voted NPO for alliance most likely to succeed in 2018 (same for Roq in the equivalent player category). But this is too rich. BK for best diplomatic staff (I can't think of an alliance with worse FA), BK for best military (I guess getting mauled despite having first strike advantage is the reason), Acadia for alliance most likely to succeed in 2018 (I don't know what to say, really :3).
I'm one of the people who voted for a large array of players and alliances everywhere in these "best" categories, and I wonder... if IQsphere dominates pretty much every one of these categories even though they've been completely inept thus far, I can't imagine what these polls will look like next year if they're the dominant sphere. I'm finding this hilarious, so please carry on with your voting.
