War Stripping Debate

Postby lililililililililil on Feb 25 2010, 9:33pm

In the current war, KaW War III, both sides (IG vs. Foxes, Chaos, Voodoo) have been using a strategy called "stripping" or "cleaning out". It involves letting the target going to sleep, buying their allies, and stealing all of the gold. The target goes to sleep maybe with 12 billion gold worth of allies and wakes up with 0 gold and 0 allies.

Recently, Pollyanna of the fox clan has polled some IGs on their thoughts of stripping. Is it moral to destroy one's hard work overnight? Is it really worth the gains?

My question to you is:
1. Have you ever been stripped? If so, what are your feelings of the experience?

2. Have you ever cleaned out another account? How do you feel about it?

3. Is stripping moral?

I, myself, have been cleaned out before, and I have participated in the cleaning out of an opponent's account. My feelings? It is a horrible thing to do to destroy one's months of hard work overnight. However, I do what is best for the people I care for.

Let the discussion and debate begin!

It wouldn't be a problem if people just banked their money on potions

If you have troops, you must have allies to increase your plunder bonus. This can go up into the billions to max plunder bonus.

I got stripped and it sucked!!! Lost abt 2bil within 90 mins over night. I don't think it's right, as that's hard earned cash used on nobility points (if u buy them that is) or just lots of time spent.

I don't really find stripping someone actually fun

it's like how kids fantasaize about the old pitched battles with knights and swords
now we have big guns and stuff but in the end swords and shields are always funner

the old style of pinning somone is way cooler than just... Hmmm... .... ... ... ... 

U joined the clan ur clan went to war so it's ur fault if u lose all your money but that's a risk u will take if u like ur clan and once you have like five million don't put it into allies put it into ur kingdom or other important things don't keep 2billion lying around

That's mean if you are doing it to others in a war. But if it's doing it onto a farmer then he deserves it.

I just see it as an effective war tactic. There are no "rules" of war. If it works then by all means do it. If someone does it to you that's the price you pay as a "soldier" in your clan.
