I disagree with the complaints here. What is happening is this: *you* and *your tribe* are unable to provide protection for *your* small players. Sounds to me like your tribe members should all jump ship to the tribe you describe as a "bully".
You have completely missed the point, mate. This is not a 'me' problem, or a 'my tribe' problem. This is all tribes on the server, and different players from different tribes announcing they are quitting and why in chat.
Again, there is nothing wrong with raiding players and general raiding is not what we are talking about. We are talking about players specifically setting up next to and raiding players hourly, not to collect resources but purely to kill off any chance of troop recruitment. There comes a point where raiding doesn't look like playing a game but looks like being spiteful.
There are already not enough players, and server chat is dead quiet most of the time.
Ultimately people can do what they want, but what's the goal here? to play by yourselves?
