  • Players on this server who are farming without breaking any rules get punished by some douchebag sending 500 spearfighters to grey villages. Or is it a common move on other servers as well?

    On the last server we played it was much worse, a duke of one big team was spiking everything around his kingdom for several days.

    Players on this server who are spiking without breaking any rules are being flamed by some dbag on com1 embassy forum. Or is it a common topic on other forums as well?

  • Spiking is not a strategy, it's a douchebag exploit of other peoples' strategy (namely, inactive farming).
    If everybody spiked there would be no hammers outside royalty accounts, and they would be smaller.
    Also, good defenders wouldn't be needed -> Simcity

  • Can you honestly call grey farming a strategy though? You hit the wall + residence of greys and then you send a few units every 20-60mins for 7 days. Repetitively. Without thinking. Without planning. There's zero thinking / decision making involved. It's just a boring (but sadly necessary) and absolutely riskfree (without spikers) way to acquire resources

    ...that actually reduces figthing since you need many more hrs to gather your army if you are running farmlists.

  • About farming inactives you say:

    "Repetitively. Without thinking. Without planning. There's zero thinking / decision making involved."

    Does spiking requires lots of skill, thinking, planning, decision making?
    No, and you're being very hypocritical.

    If farming inactives requires no skill, spiking inactives requires even less, and you don't even need to be an active player to do it.

    You just need a village with fields, warehouse, barracks and 2 clicks.


    Also, "gathering the army"... why do you even see that as a problem?

    Offenders don't attack every day, they need to replenish troops lost and grow their army between attacks.

    If Offenders attacked every day without farming, we would have armies of 2k troops, instead of 100k.

    Spiking is like russians cheating... an obnoxious behaviour that won't go away.
    Just because lots of people can play fair, doesn't mean all people will.

    Spikers imho are just failed players that aren't active enough to build a hammer, but they wished they could do it anyways, so they lash out to those that are doing it.
    Basically, 12 year olds.


    Rant about Farming Inactives and Farm Lists being a strategy:

  • Discussion about spiking is a part of politics

    But it's the boring part of politics. We wanna know the juicy stuff. What happened to the non-german part of !!!? Why is shrug losing treasuries / villages to bvb? Will hive / rebel / PL hit 250 members? C'mon I'm here for the thrashtalk, not for spiker witch-hunts and multi accusations, those topics are boring!
