When An Entire League goes after a single player, is the only option joining a league or relocating. Also, to me, raiding other players fiefs for daily quest rewards is a normal part of the game and not harassment, agree or disagree???

Ultimately the game is a war game, and part of the strategy is safety in numbers. That is possibly the best tip I could give you.

If someone want to raid you dry daily, or just keep sit on you after they cant raid you for anymore, just because they can, well that is part of the game.


Your "fifes" is some other player for most parts, doesnt matter if inactive or not. They dont belong to you just because you sit on them.

The funny part is the league came after me for raiding one of their league's fiefs. They call it harassment, but they think 15 against one is fair. I ain't going anywhere, I'm standing and fighting. I like bad odds. Thanks for your response

That silly, you should single out their weak and feeble and kill them off one by one -)

I have been focusing on that player, and that is what the league has a problem with, they call that harassing that player. Also, I send out 5 raids and only 1 of the five is a big raid, they call the other 4 spamming, I call it strategy.

To bad there were not more options for solo players to survive.


 I don't like leagues as you never know if the league player you are helping is just a young kid who is mad they can't win everyone they attack and are unhappy the person they attacked attacks back so they go to their league to squish them.

I think children and adults playing the same game creates a lot of issues. Be nice to split the age groups to separate servers but way to late for that now.

Or solos can only fight solos and leagues can only fight leagues would also be cool. I don't get the need to league.

The game is sold on the premise of social interactions, so leagues are vital to the game... Joining them or going solo is a strategic decision.

You can "bully" someone by attack and raid them night and day. That isn't harrasment, its part of the game if you desire to play that way. Just encourage them to report it as harrasment or whatever, its not. Just avoid use bad language and such in exchange of mails.

 

If people start cry about being attacked in a  pvp game, you should refer them to hello-kitty online or something similar.

I have never refused to back off from a player if asked for mercy, and don't specifically target any one player unless we're in a declared war or Challenge. That said, this is a war game, not Farmville. PVP is the object of the game, and the game is set up for League players to have an advantage. It is possible to play solitary, and I do know several players doing it quite successfully, but it's a constant struggle for them and negates the whole social aspect of the game, which is a large part of why I play. 

Fiefs are like a time-share, you don't own them and it is not worth getting upset over losing one. It is annoying when someone specifically hunts down your sieges, but it just means you need to be smarter and scatter them further apart or actively defend a couple to take out the raiding troops. Someone who loses a large force of offense will be more cautious next time. Dead offense, problem solved.

I have heard accusations of large leagues "bullying" smaller leagues, or single players, but usually there's another side to the story. These players have done something against the larger league usually - spied or tried to raid a beacon, repeatedly attacked or sieged a league member, or sent objectionable emails to the league after they were raided or spied on.  

Any player has the option of dodging attacks. Level the catacombs to protect resources, put some on the market or use it before the raid hits. Keep your troops in the catacombs unless actively in use. No troops left out, resources under the protection limit, and you're not an attractive target anymore - unless you escalate the situation by putting your mouth in gear before your common sense can kick in. 

Large leagues are successful because of teamwork, so if you put a stick in the ant nest, expect to get bitten.



I think, therefore I game.
