Okay everybody, this is a breakdown of our key players currently on the board and who they're affiliated with. The story has always been a "game of chess" between multiple sides. At first it was simply pirates vs marines. Then it bcame a 3 sided chess game with the Shichibukai. Adding more and more elements, the world government, the revolutionaries, the people of the world (various islands), alliances and so forth.

Last: Analysis

So the way I cut it, that's 7 independant sides, each with their own goals and ambitions.

The world of one piece is currently a 7 sided chess board.

I personally don't thing the kid alliance, Big mom, and kaido will be lasting enemies. 

I think the final conflict will be our heroes versus either blackbeard or the world government. Possibly a simultaneous two front battle of the revolutionaries vs the world gov, while luffy and blackbeard duke it out elsewhere.

Parting message: I'll be updating this every 100 chapters or so. Adding and Subtracting elements as I see fit. Please comment. I make these to hear your opinions and theories. Who will fight who? Who will be victorious? Who will be the Pirate King?
