I disagree, no one cares about runes until one tribe controls all the ks and wins it. Any tribe that’s put priority on capping rune villages is playing ineffectivly. You’re right about it being area domination game but it’s nothing to do runes until the final days. It wouldn’t give rim tribes any leverage. Their main leverage is their use of moral to be a timesink because effectivly all major tribes are in a race to clear out their backline along with maybe some rogue support from an enemy of your enemy. Expanding rune villages to rim k’s would simply drag out an end game that no one likes to play anyway when the wars are won and the vultures come out.busamad makes a very good point.
i would like to add that this effectively removes the outer Rim tribes from competitive play. The only purposes they will end up serving is to help a larger core tribe take the victory. However, if they had the opportunity to take rune villages then the core tribes would have to work with them in a larger capacity or go to war to take those regions. This is, at its core, a game of domination.
