As you say lets keep it on topic, you call it merge i call it recruitment, tomato - tomato as they say... no point going round in circles.UK3 forums are ---> that way. This is the Uk8 forum. What relevance UK3 has here is beyond me...Do enlighten me though.
"Recruiting" BW (certainly the larger players and throwing in a few of the smaller players to make it all look good on paper) was a brilliant move. You gain ground / villages / points without needing to create "another" war (since you have so thoughtfully informed me you are in many)
for someone venturing into a merger one would surely look at stats. to see the people they were merging with. After all you'd want some idea of the quality of players they were bringing it to their supreme tribe as you call it. Assuming you did this homework you don't really need me to answer the refugee question.
It is rather amusing this conversation is still going actually. I merely pointed out a merger with one of the tribes in the top 20 (being on topic and all). You have then evolved that into what we have now by needing to state that it actually wasn't a merger but a crafty recruiting strategy. I do enjoy the discussion and so as long as the mods. don't wish us to stop for being off topic then please let's continue.
As for your argument...bw were easy targets till they joined u guys i mean they ha w1nge ~te~ and time all wanting there villas there players were leaving like crazy
the only tribe to take any BW villas in the past month is ~TE~ 11 caps - 2, lets face it that aint all that is it? and yes if this means us taking them in means another war with ~TE~ i am prepared for that, however i really dont think they are gonna be that petty as last month they took 57 villas and only 11 were BW if this was actually a war they did pretty poorly as they prioritized other targets over them, these were in my eyes opportunity conqueres
