If a tree falls in a forest....

The interweb has been ablaze with tales on the looting of Altdorf for a 2nd time.
I don't see the point in midnight raids. To quote the governator himself
What is best in life? "To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of the women"
What this so elegantly express is that in any war between two factions the only real victory is archived when your enemies feel their defeat.
So then what is a point in a triumph when you never even see your enemies.I'm not taking anything away from the people who pulled this off. Its not Retribution's fault they were organized and committed and the defenders were not.
what the game need to do is to offer incentives for attack to be made at busy times & for the to be incentives for players to defend.When all is said & done WaR is about beating other players, not about beating the game.
