Sly, you're right that players aren't going to noble barbs as long as they grow, and i hope it stays that way. The point of this game is to fight players, not just nobling a barb that can never fight back. Growing barbs will just make this a boring world and lessen the incentive for active players to fight each other.
Many people on w25 joined this world because there is no growing barbs and i hope they keep it this way. Also this is a topic that been beaten over the head with a bat way too many times, its dead and never has any of the discussions come to a consensus.
yeah i suppose but i got nobled by a guy who started with a few barbs and whent on to noble most my 15x15 grid including me!! so now im up in k3 just building my aremy till i can be bothered to noble some barbs then go players
Maybe in the future, once people stop joining and they will only grow to a small amount. I reckon my reasons for having them grow have been stated already, but if they grow too much then we are going to see a significant decrease in the amount of player v player fights (keep in mind that the game is called tribal wars, that's what I'm here for)
