I think it’s not a very good update, like the map editor, it worsens the game. I’m not complaining or anything and I don’t blame the ‘makers’, it’s what lots of people (sadly) wanted. It would be better if there were waaay less tribes, like just one or two WJ tribes, one or two training guild thingies, but what I think happens a lot is that a small groups of 8 persons (/mice, ;D) are in the making, and on top of that, it increases the lag ratio a lot. (And I got a lot of spam like: ’You’re invited to join blahblah tribe, I say no, It comes again, I say it doesnt come, the user spams on me by whispering, and on and on.. Its just THAT annoying…)
But on the other hand, it IS true it’s a way to communicate and socialze more than before; it’s fun to have 20 people you know, you can almost be certain at least 3 of them are online.
IF there were less of them and the lag got reduced, I’d say it’s a good thing, but it isn’t (yet).
