As of 23:16 BST:

Augustin Alliance: 114,624
An Alliance of Potatoes: 89,121
Ba Sing Se: 88,844

The Potato Alliance is clearly back in the race to the top, and also getting close to taking the lead in the strikes table:

Horsemen of the Apocalypse: 177,700 Strikes
An Alliance of Potatoes: 150,940 Strikes

Mini Squiddy was also spotted briefly in the faction.

We worked our way up from 355th, sent The Horsemen to last place and kept them there, then made it all the way to second place. This is THE BIGGEST COMEBACK IN N-DAY HISTORY. Hands down. Nobody has done it better ever before. Silver potatooooooooooo!!!!!

2nd place is monumental when this very alliance was in last place at lunchtime yesterday (underlined for emphasis).

I hope the Horsemen of the Apocalypse have learned their lesson about flooding their factions with hundreds of puppets. Dozens may be tolerable, but hundreds is sheer overkill.

There was a time when I was picking my targets by doing a nation search for 'Vinny.' Wanted to see how many I could make land on one person.
GVH has a puppet. He uses it to post in regions and on the forums. The identity of this puppet will forever remain a mystery.

From the Discord server:

Thank you everyone for the most amazing N-Day I could have ever hoped for! We got stomped to the ground so early, we all were ready to give up, but we ADAPTED in ways nobody had seen before and we came back so hard! We got SO MANY more hits than anyone else, it's absolute insanity what we pulled off. I think this is clearly the best N-Day faction in the history of NS, and I'm proud to call you all my fellow potatoes. We didn't get first, but we absolutely won this N-Day! THANK YOU ALL!!!!

I can't help but applaud the unbreakable, tenacious fighting spirit of the noble potatoes. Where other alliances might have surrendered to despair and defeat, the Potatoes fought on with even greater ferocity and fervor. Every land burned, every home razed, every soldier fallen, it did not weaken the Potatoes' resolve. It made their resolve stronger.

When Death swept over the Potato lands, he taunted them, claiming that they were trapped with him. No. He was trapped with them. And when the Potatoes flooded Death's halls, they did not come as prisoners and victims. They came as invaders and liberators.

For a long time, potatoes have been known as the plant with a hundred eyes. From this day forward, they will also be known as the plant with a hundred teeth. And those teeth are sharp.
