So I swapped over to TB on Sonoma, basically because nobody else on Sonoma plays my old faction (Minax). Upon switching, I got killed. Literally the second I joined. First, I thought it was some hidden assassin... then I noticed that the guards around Castle British were now ORANGE. Yes, the BASE of TB was occupied by enemy NPCs. For those unfamiliar with Sonoma Factions, CoM has virtually everyone. The other factions are deserted. TB is the only one that has somewhat of an active base, and even that is just a handful. Compared to CoM who have legions AND control every single town on the shard. That's OK, the fortunes of war is that sometimes you are utterly and hopelessly outnumbered. But in this kind of situation, there must be SOME balance to lessen the strangehold the top dogs have. They should not be allowed to station standing armies of NPCs within our base, even if they own the city. Or at least give us a backup base.
