You're lacking in a sense as to the method of winning the world. It is essentially the same as any other %owned-to-win world. If we want a fast win, then yes, we need to noble into enemy territory and bust our asses defending, or we could noble every single DOTT village, while they struggle for the rune ones, and just save those for last. They wont be conquering any more rune villages from us, and we own enough of a majority to stop a victory, unless DOTT decides to rush and noble everyone behind them, but even then, we are in no rush to take the rune villages, and are more than able to spend our own sweet time until we've easily nobled them within our territory. The defense of such villages would be rather simple at that point. And Hail Hydra.
