Highborn was, without any doubt, one of the best offensive players in the game, but in one circumstance he bit off more than he could handle, he had a large block of isolated villages in the SE and had managed to piss off a player named Beldon, Beldon was the leader of a tribe in that area and he made Highborn the focus of his whole tribe, Highborn was in HOT|SE2 and that HOT branch did not get along with the members of HOT|SE (led by Ripply), HOT|SE was considered a "tribal hugs" group of players but active, I asked HOT|SE to support Highborn, they stacked his villages so well that he not only didn't lose any but was able to start taking villages from Beldon.
The point is... labeling large groups of players as "cowards" because they don't do things your way is arrogant and incredibly stupid.
Beldin was not larger than Highborn in that area. Beldin was the co-leader of RB. And Highborn was not the focus of our whole tribe. I believe Highborn did lose a few villages, seeing as I took five myself.
