My view on engineering

Note: This post does not include how to engineer because the MM constantly changes and I find that anything I write now can be obsolete within a few days.

Loot penalty is a myth

The Misconception of Intimidation

I’ve posted this more than a year ago, but realised I never added this to my blog, so here it is. Original text: The Misconception of Intimidation In this post update era, everyone is not safe from being attacked. And no base can currently stop any competent attacker from taking a decent portion of your loot I’ve already noted that, […]
