Plight has rarely nobled Ni! villages, so how can you say this boosts their stats?
Because it does?
Come on...we're discussing a week in which Plight nobled 45 villages from Ni, and more than half of those conquers came from players who were in Plight a week ago. Yeah, I'm pretty comfortable with saying that this boosts their stats.
In fact, considering the 2.5 million points worth of (I suspect) inactives moving from Plight to Ni, I imagine this behavior will continue for another few weeks. That'll influence the weekly CoP changes significantly (to the tune of 0.40%).
Your stats show that this is not common behavior in the Plight-Ni relationship, and I agree; I expect that it was done to make room for the people who went from Ni to Plight. However, the fact that it's uncommon makes it more important to point it out when it happens.
After all, it wouldn't be much of a statistical analysis if I posted the numbers and then said "hey, that's weird. *SEND*" :icon_wink:
