Me is wondering when is nobling a barb villa ok? Do ye do it just to move a church? Do ye do it to fortify an area cause there be noone to kill? Do you wait till the barb gets to a certain size?

Me know what RUM!! thinks. Capt'n and the officers aboard are very strick (the meanies) on barb nobling, but me notice how the top tribe and especially the "great" family tribes seem to noble barbs willi nilly. example:

Now it looks like he has attacked people.. but again just like before 69 internal kills and 61 barb villas nobled.... Me is just in awe.

Now me has given ye players metioned some credit.. Me is sure some of ye other kills were also internal, but me just counted ones from ye tribe and not some of the other tribes ye were in adn ye nobled thoes players too. :)

Me just want to know from other players in other tribes what do ye all consider good time to kill a nasty barb.... or lets just hug an family and grow to be the biggest in the world by nobling people we invite into our family.

Do this be the norm? me thought tribal hugs was a different game?

Good Job on pulling Stats while he was in WASP...CONGRATULATIONS.....WOOO HOOOO give it up to this guy. I think it's hilarious of how worried you are of our family of 2.

really, you are pulling up internals? Dont make me pull up dacritta's stats...

Aye.. me did do a good job of pulling stats :).... me impressed meself

me nay worried of ye family... me just wondering on what constitutes a good kill? or do ye all just do internals and barbs?

and the same question goes to other tribes around the world. Me know what me Catp'n and officers think. Me just think they be too strict. They let critta noble internals and me can only think that be cause he be a point hooker and to keep him #1 in the world and piss off ye family members that cant noble internals yourself fast enough. but that just be speculation.

I still noble selected barbs when it becomes necessary.

As you've mentioned, moving churches to maximise efficiency is a reason sometimes.

Other times our tribe has made a player quit & it is deemed unsafe to leave fully built villas in the middle of our territory.
Each time we've decided to leave some for later, some idiot player or tribe from many Ks away decides that a holiday home inside our area is a good idea (it's not).
By the same reasoning internals have to be eaten by someone (preferably our tribe lol), but we try to spread the load & do give priority in certain areas to players who are performing well in other areas (either in attack or support).

And a couple of times I've nobled farms in an area because my super aggressive tribe mates have forgotten about local D in their rush to noble, snipe, renoble & I don't want to lower the number of nukes I have in the area.
The church system & inability to send support to a village until your tribe is in possession do make geography even more crucial on this world than most.

Many disagree with me of course.
I remember that Chuckiie (who was one of the most aggressive players on this world before he left) was against taking any villages except from active players.
Personally I don't find taking internals or barbs at all satisfying, but sometimes the villages taken that way can enhance your ability to take out more actives.

Aye.. that make sence phoenix. me has had to take a couple barbs due to others trying to take them.. me nay like that.. but shhhhhh.. dont tell Capt'n me has taken a couple barbs recently...

Arrrrgh... cause me want to know what goes through leaders and peoples minds when they noble barbs. Do they do it just to turtle? do they do it just to get more villas? dfo leaders approve so their tribe can get in the top 20? me is a pirate that needs to know. :)

I can only speak from my own experience. When I started I barbed like hell to build a manufacturing base for troops. From there I went for bonus villages. When I got to a stage of the game where the gloves came off, barbing was only used if I had to build a staging zone for an offensive so my nobles could travel shorted distances. Yes I'm patient.

only really works if you dont have an aggressive player in your area.

My first noble was the best player village in my area - he must have been surprised to wake up & find his village taken by train without warning lol.
I wanted a cluster of 3 nearby so my 2nd was a little barb to move the church to fit the new villas in. NOTE: church since moved :)
After that I saw that the tribe to my south (the now dead |BC|) were nobling everything that didn't move, so I decided to take a bonus barracks & bonus stables.
That gave me a fairly good base to expand from.

That was when the 3 of us (including my friend ashuji who is still playing with me in Kata) broke away from the fail tribe we were in & went on a rampage against a tribe with 33 members. Fun days & nights :D

When Zuur decided to focus on his young family & business Kata was the only choice really.
The tribes around us were too passive but 2 players were not enough to make a serious dent.

Joining Kata & dedicating the account to them was the best decision I've made in W40 overall I think.
I'll not join another tribe in this world.

me went on a killing spree the minute me hit the ground. Me nay noble a barb till a buger started nobling them near me. then me took on before he could.. then I nobled him. Then a putz had to quit as i was nobling him.. had to take a few more of his villas that went barb... alass another player quits and took a few more. All the time though still hitting other players and nobling there villas. :)
 

YARGHHHHHHH

Guest
indeed its not always so much the village as the quality, nobling 2k villages like a madman is just a waste of nobles, jump out to your tribes front line with them thats where the fun is, hell im in 4k's right now :)

The truth is...internal nobling / barb nobling are a part of the game... (pull up any player you want)....if a large barb or internal noble is near you...it make sense to noble it for security reasons if for no other...all players do it...and will continue to do it...what matters is that you stay involved in the efforts of the tribe...I never had a problem with someone growing as long as they were active and contributing to the war effort.

Another truth is....most of the players in the world will quit before the end....I often think the winner will be that poor soul who stays on the longest..perhaps even you will be internally nobled :)

besides "Me thinks you be a bit jealous of the size of me ship...argggg."....I would be as well if I was floating around in a "dinghy"

pwallace.... nay, on the contrary....me would be impressed with the size of ye ship if ye pirates....er, me mean landlubers actually nobled 9k babrs.. most of ye crew noble 2k barbs and internals. me understand the concept of internal nobling, sometimes it has to be done, but when ye entire crew is eating internals and nobling barbs, ye have stupid pirates like me scratching his lice infested head wondering what in nemos world be going on over there where they have no enemies to attack. look at ye crew.....they be internal and barb noblers :)

I got wiped out for being a noob. I didn't grasp the concept of hitting back, so I turtled and eventually got smashed.
I nobled into a safe zone, where I could develop a functional cluster from barbs and as soon as I was able, I nobled villages from the guy right next to me and doubled in size. I got a taste for blood.

Generally I'm against barb nobling, but there are times when it's useful. One being when preparing for the long haul.

And that's why I don't hate it when you go on about family's, coz I'd agree if I wasn't in one. Just remember: war is not just fighting. There are many aspects to war, and the actual fighting is only half of it.

and yet this game be called Tribal Wars cause nobling internal and 2k barbs is a major part of this game? ye noble clusters of barbs to be a turtle, ye kill everyone around ye cause ye are aggressive and like to fight. nobling a 2k barb is nay preparing fer the long haul when all round you is blue dots from ye families. ye are nobling barbs to match growth pace with the family members around ye. me nay wants to hug people around me and put them in a tribe to be huggies with.. me kill them and take there villas and grow. as yarghhhhhhh said earlier...he is on 4 different k's KILLING people.. not nobling barbs...

and if ye be in one and ye agree.... then just say ye be right Travis. These families like me be in are barb nobling internal nobling huggers that are full of wussies :)

Do you know what the concept of 'the long haul' is?
I think we also might have different ideas to what a turtle is. Is it not someone who is completely defensive? Enough with this line of thought though, it's not as fun arguing with someone who is completely set in their opinion.

and if ye be in one and ye agree.... then just say ye be right Travis. These families like me be in are barb nobling internal nobling huggers that are full of wussies :)
Ye be right Trav :icon_redface:
That's a very rash generalisation though, not all are barb nobling internal hugging wussies.
