So I have been playing on some new servers recently and one thing I have noticed is a large number of clans with low to medium number of players in their clans building massive castles and forts all over the map.
Most of these clans are not going to be able to farm 500 zeal every 2 days to keep bubbles up on everything they have built. This one server I recently started on, there are 4 clans with tons of fortresses spread out everywhere on the map. They are all “alphas” and all work together to try and keep any new players from even starting on the server.
The reason I mention this is because I’ve seen quite a few forum comments saying things like alphas control too much land claim. That Funcom should limit building through their new “guidelines” and reporting process. Other comments that there should be server wipes because alphas control the servers and new players have no chance at all. Etc.
From what I am seeing on some of these servers, the alphas have grown very complacent and just build big and build big EVERYWHERE with no regards to the possibility that gods would ever return.
So for all you solo players and small clans out there, when gods return, you are going to be able to seriously wreck some people. Thus gods may very well solve a lot of the aforementioned complaints we keep seeing on the forums.
