Turbo Round 372: Nobody Likes a Thief, but Everyone Likes to Be a Thief

Big builds, huge kills, ranks changing from one minute to the next - what an exciting Turbo Round 372 shaped up to be! With the global economy in turmoil, TMB issued a bailout of a 10:1 ratio on all bought or won credits added to the round.
The other rules of the round were as follows:
[list][*]Jackpot starts at $300 [*] 5 Per family [*] Auto and Manual Transfers Allowed [*] Cannot Leave/Disband families [*] Family Collector Ranks: Only Cash in Family Bank counts [*] Family Killer Ranks: Kills count if made in Family only [*] Start maxed and 20% of Net worth Damage per hour to max [*] No Revenge [*] 5 % deposit in Family Bank or Safe Box Only [*] Round capped at 180k Bought or Won turns only [/list]
All was quiet on the TMB turbo front...for the first hour of the round. After the first TOH, we saw some early builders. Superman and VII both built millions of DUs each, collecting trillions. Did they think they were safe? Did they think they were Untouchable? Well, perhaps these players were.
As is customary in any ratio round, big builds start early and continue sporadically throughout the round. And all the while, killers from mostly IU and UC knocking them down shortly after they build. We saw some killing from Santa in Clauwau, a few players in D_N_F, but other than that, it was IU vs UC all the way.
Back and forth the killers went. Kill_You-over-over from IU and Mr.Orange from UC went head to head for the first stretch of the round, staying pretty close in kills. Kill_You-over-over snatched the lead and ran with it, racking up over 17 million kills. It didnít seem like anyone would past him. Sure enough, the round wasnít over yet.
Within the course of the first day, one of the initial big builders VII was taken down. IU was able to snag some considerable kills off this target. However, Superman was built like a tank and wasnít harmed, even later on in the round when money switched hands.
In the early hours of the second day, banks popped up. Mr_Eight from ICS ran a successful bank. His intentions were clear: Practice for the up and coming Banking Round! Hope this practice paid off! Holder, Maxer, TOH...these terms will be of use again, so time to dust off your Banking Tutorial guides everyone!
No one likes a thief, but everyone wants to be one! With 20% damage per hour to max, looting was at full force. Money quickly changed hands between looters, killers, and collectors alike thanks to the careful and calculating hits from looters throughout the game. Practically everyone was a looter in this round! No revenge made it perfect to get away with whatever hits you might have made. Itís all about making that money money money!!
With only 18 hours in the round left, Kill_You-over-over was still in the lead by several million kills. Other IU players had crept up, done their damage, and sitting pretty in the supporter killing ranks. All the while, UC were racking up kills in the free killer ranks.
Whatís This?! All of the sudden, Cappadonna comes out of nowhere, building close to 10 million DUs and begins slaughtering all over globals. Shooting out of the shadows, this player quickly racked up nearly 15 million kills, passing players in kills in a matter of minutes! Who was this player? Turns out they were repping a UC flag under the family BiTcHeZ_FrOm_Da_HoOd. It seemed there was no way he would be stopped, wiping out all the DUs of his competition as he rose to the top. As this player sat high in globals with million of DUs to spare, there were no longer any targets. Dropping networth, this player logged off and circumstantially lost all of their remaining DUs - losing their chance to overtake Kill_You-over-over.
About this time, a player named Fartman tiered up, hired nothing but pure DUs and was quickly giving the trillions that our friend Superman was sitting on. What a smart move! No one could out-build him to kill him effectively, so the money was safe with him. Such a move gave no opportunity for a challenge in this round, Fartman goes on to win Turbo Round 372!
Just a few more things can be said about killing. IU might have swept 3 out of 5 of the supporter killing ranks, but UC took all 5 of the free player killing ranks! TimeChange from IU beat out Mr.Orange from UC for the gold by just 30k kills. WOW! A calculated move flung TimeChange into the lead with Mr.Orange unable to catch up.
The final hour came. Although there was no challenge for the JP, the lower tiers were constantly bouncing back and forth as players got maxed, added their turns, and started their collect. Trillions were flying around like airplanes in the sky! Thanks to transfers in this turbo round, tiers were easily set by Fartman and Co. which turned out to be Danzig and the Untouchables. Other collectors in RU/IU did some serious damage to the collecting ranks as well thanks to their organization! Hitsquad, wow! They snagged the gold in both LVLs 1 and 2, congratulations!
We now hear from a first time ranking player, who was Tito-Delucci in the turbo round. He snagged his first ever medal with a LVL 1 bronze. Congratulations to you sir!
