Chief Warrant Officer
Indeed. I'm less inclined to "whine" and more inclined to willfully express a little truth instead. Of course very often there isn't a lot we can do about it in life sometimes. With pixels and how we do love those pixels that for some reason pixels become so dear to us, maybe because we have become addictively attached over long periods of time that we don't desire our enjoyment to be plundered. Yes we can look for ways to counter act. Monopoly designs are based on rents and fines not thievery.
All I can hope for in my real life is that someone can read my words not as a whinny baby but as a cry for justice. Let those that sit at long tables who attempt to harmfully rule over aspects of other peoples life and then go on to brag about it suddenly see who they really are or who they might be imitating.
If you dislike being plundered there are various ways to avoid being plundered. You could become the plunderer; plunder those who dare to plunder you, get a good defense; collect on time and although I hate city shields; sadly city shields exist. There's a GB called the Galata Tower too.
But personally, I adore plundering it adds more challenge to the game, plus if you don't like plundering or fights Elvenar is there for you as it has similar game mechanics to FoE.
