Our alliance ended up Rank 4 in exploration and Rank 4 in defense at the end of the week.
Our alliance normally ends up Rank 5 in exploration. The final thing for us was the Rare DNA mission.
We ended up with about 435000 DNA collected out of 450000. I am sure if we had a few more hours, we could have mustered up the DNA, but all the patches and down time killed it for us.
Did anybody else lose out on a Rank because of all the downtime?
