Have you found in the German version that there is 1 or 2 tribes that have taken over the gamewolrd and are now so large that nobody would/could attack them.

Is there anything stopping a tribe dominting the whole world ?

I am just thinking what would happen if for example 2 or 3 large tribes joined forces and demanded things. Would there be any way to stop them other than getting yourself a bigger tribe.

How are you finding the tribe dynamics in the German game ?

There's a big dynamic concerning the tribes. New tribes are founded by players who are displeased with their situation in the tribe. The new tribe works well for a couple of time but then there are again some displeased members and it starts over again.

Until now there was never a situation that 1 or 2 tribes dominate one world, at least not for a longer time or they ruled just a part of the world.

Thanks for the answer guybrush

I assume that you also play the German version ?

Is there only 1 world in that version ?

Do you find that there are lots of little tribes or are there 5 or 6 massive tribes ?

I played the German version, I'm not an active player any longer. But as a moderator of the german forum I know a little about the 7 different german worlds.

World 1 and 2 run already a long time and because there weren't as many players from the beginning as in the other worlds there are (after about 2.5 years) only a few player really active, therefore there are only a few tribes in the world left.

In World 3 to 6 there are many players that started immediately with the beginning of the world and there are a lot of more tribes.

But I think one can generalize that the longer a world runs the less tribes are fighting on this world.

From my point of view it doesn't make much sense to play 2 or more years on one world. To manage more than 1000 villages is a lot of work, needs a lot of time and is not enough fun to justify the amount of time you spend with the game. But this is just my point of view, other players like that. :icon_wink:

I've just looked it up. In world 5 there are 2201 different tribes :)
Now that may sound like alot of tribes, but some stats on that would give us better information.

For example, there are 257 tribes in this beta world of which only 30 have more than 5 people in it.

The 3 main tribes, BIGG, FT and MUEO have 55 ,53 and 50 members in them. Out of a player base of 820 we have 3 tribes with 150+ people in them.

That tells me that if some little 10 man tribe was attacked by one of these 3, their options would be virtually null, and they would either have to accept the war, join the bigger tribe, or lose interest and go play another game.

I am just trying to understand what stops that from happeneing. I can see nothing that would.

Maybe another morale factor could be placed upon the attack system. If you attack somebody who is a member of a tribe that is significantly smaller than your tribe, you get negative morale like you get under the present system for individuals.

Than i leave my tribe for one night and attackt the other player. Can not be the sence behind it.

@ Topic: No I have never seen a tribe dominating a whole world. I have been in a very powerfull tribe for a long time. We tried to rule one quater of the map, and even this was very hard and nearly impossible, because there is s system of many other smaler tribes that help each other against the big evil enemy. So back to the story, we were 40 players. Tribe Ranking #1 and nearly everybody was in the top 100. But fpr us it was impossible to grow father than other tribes. Of course we had a lot of nice wars. But as guy said, members asre comming and members are going. So the tribe was divided and there were new fights. I finanlly deleted may account (~500 villages) because it was to much work for me. I had to do a-levels and start university, which is more important if course.

This aspect is very complex depending on a lot of parameters.

But in fact a big tribe can easily attack a small tribe (what doesn't mean that the big tribe will win). But that's how it works. If you are in a small tribe and everyone around you is bigger than you and an enemy than you should really ask yourself if you've made something wrong :icon_wink:

And remember always: This game is called "Tribal_Wars_". That means that there's always war or the other way around: you don't need a good reason for war and everything is allowed.

it must get to a point where distance is a factor.
even between you (terrafutan) and myself there is a 3hr gap.
immagine trying to cover that entire distance in domination even with 30 members. they would have to be strategically chosen and coersed to join the tribe and then kill kill kill.

and trying to supply or support would be a nightmare.
i see your point of global domination but there must be breaking points and achillies heels that are easily exploited.
