BTW, pointing to map and saying 'that's mine' is actually how allot of (real world) historic expeditions/expansions happened. Therefore, I will not be surprised that it carried over to this sandbox as well.

And talking about empires..., you must also read the line just under the 'Build a city, create an Empire!' on Illyriad main page , it says 'Forge Alliances with thousands of players.'... If you look at the events, this is actually what happened with CDS as hundreds of players (if not thousands) forged an alliance, and created an empire called CDS.

One city is not an empire! You can only create and maintain an empire (be it single player's or an alliance's) if it's many cities are within a reasonable proximity of each other, as well as, have mix of specializations. There are a number of players (some of them even old/senior players) that are too scattered around, perhaps they are feeling threatened due to shortcomings of their own strategies as well as in predicting and adopting to the evolution of meta-game.

Having said that none of us hold any ill toward any newbs and will continue to provide them support and guidance. As same was provide to me when I joined the game and remained alliance-less for few years. I even did mistakes/mischiefs but was never corrected harshly, people here are willing to hear and guide you correctly.

As a n00b myself I can testify that treatment of n00bs in Illyriad is excellent!!
Welcome packages, alliance invites, friendly neighbors, great advices.
And same story for my alt.

Only issues I had was some bad guys bumping my cotters now and then! Once I noticed killed legion of rats with over 1000 hides dropped, sent my cotters... got bumped!!! Damned bullies!

And where would that mob get directed? To the imaginary people who bully n00bs? Farming n00bs doesn't happen in this game on any meaningful frequency. This entire debate is a straw man argument, a tirade against a boogeyman that we all know doesn't exist.

Why it wandered over to land claims, sensible readers can judge for themselves.

Stick to the topic.
Point a newbie suffering
under yoke of slaving land claimers
show community the proof
put your armies where your mouth is
and the wrath of illy mob
might awaken to spread 
its unjust, opportunistic
and unnecessary cruel judgement.

It ain't happening. You are complaining about how other people choose to play. It is their choice to "build their own empire" as the front page of illyriad advertises, by the means available to them. People complaining in GC do more to scare off the newbs than the actual landclaimers.

Meta-gaming is part of the Illyriad architecture. We put a finger on the map and said "That's ours." If people use the game mechanics to put a city in there, we use the game mechanics to remove it.

I don't need to read the book. I wrote the book.

LMFAO. Bitching about land claimers being the reason people leave. Thats the most pathetic argument in this forum. How about listing the players who left because of whiners like you? That list would be twice as long. Rikoo has gone, feel free to list the folks who left because of land claims now. As to it being a game mechanic before you recognize it? Well, the ability to make and use troops to defend what is yours proves the game mechanics are designed to include land claims. You do not like it, do something about it in game then. Dislodge the folks protecting their areas.

There are so many open free spots in the game using land claims as an excuse is like sitting in the rain bitching about getting wet instead of walking to nearest shelter to get out of the rain. Get of your fat arses and move to the nearest shelter so you can stay dry and happy.
