So youve managed to point out a number of issues with HQ camping. You have not explained why it is scorequeening..
Id like to add that you care more about preserving your own troops than being able to defend others. it also gives you no troops to stop land steals and relies on your alliance defending you because you want to sleep/go afk. pretty selfish

not on all occasions is preserving troops score the act of queening i agree with that. sometimes it is smarter to live and fight another day, and as toby pointed out there are ways and means to do that too.

The issue i have is when someone or thier alliance sends to hq regularly, then moans at an alliance who sent at the HQ to try and kill the targets they want to kill because those targets arent home. Then has the mindset to insult the alliance and its members on the battles they chose to fight and call the entire said alliance "score queens" that just shouts hypocrit to me. Thats what i think is sad. Especially when every shred of evidence shows the oposite. Not to mention im pretty sure they only want you to stay when they might win. Yet when you do stay on certain death they parade the battle report round like some magnificent shrine to be worshipped, claiming its some marvelous feat and said alliance who suicided is some how inadequate.

Hell to be honest i cant blame them. Ive seen alot of rank 1 incoming in my time. You have to take the small victories and use it for moral. You dont have to be a dick to the alliance in question though, and try to wind them up and resort to name calling, then go on forums all serious when they respond (perhaps childishly)and rub thier victories in your face for a change, because you riled them. What did you expect?

I agreed right until you started going off on a tangent.. I'm not sure you've actually been reading the BR posts from us this round if you really think all that

I dont know what part you think is the tangent. (apart from everything for the past 10 or more pages given the name of the thread) I'm gueessing the "small victories" as anything else cannot be proven via Battle report....I consider anything a small victory that doesnt change the shape or dynamic of the current rankings, and simply prevented your alliance losing more score/land/moral

Although if this is the case you would have to show battle report(s) of us dying which kinda shows we cant be complete score queens, If we were then kiwi would only stay on the targets where you undersend or dont send, cant have it both ways. [should probably stop wanting to explore the tangent]

your tangent was you going off on how much you think we enjoy or appreciate or love or whatever word fits (none seem to fit it quite right) the battles.. Your post started off about HQ camping, and ended up on being called score-queens for recalling on an attack..

Btw - there are Scorequeens (who try to avoid troop loss anytime) and scorequeens (who only avoid unnecessary troops loss, except when defending) I'm not a particularly big fan of either, but I would much rather have someone that defends and stays than someone that calls it a land hit if there's any chance of not winning the BR
