Victory conditions should be rolled back a bit. VP worlds were set at 2k vp points when the servers were four times the size they are now. They should be set at 500 points now. Maybe 800 if 500 scares you. In any case they need to be drastically reduced. VP worlds, in effect, are dom worlds that dont end even when the enemy is completely defeated. Dom worlds should end sooner as well. You figure if a tribe has 2 out of 3 villas, well, what is anyone going to do to them? Getting 80% is ridiculously hard as your enemy in the end usually just starts mass eatting barbs-extending the server for weeks and even months. These changes will streamline servers and allow you to open new ones more quickly. This will fill your coffers more quickly. Almost noone buys coins after a server is already a forgone conclusion.
