Now this is just an observation from what I admit is a limited perspective, sense I only play maybe a couple of hours each day.
With that said, it seems our beloved Freeps of New, tend to come out in Camp mode, mostly hanging out at the steps of GV. They do group up from time to time and push out if there is somewhere other than GV where they can Turtle or they greatly outnumber the un-grouped Creeps playing at the time. Just as soon as Creeps group and get organized, the Freeps disappear though and most end up back at the GV camp.
Now here's the irony, Freeps today make Ol Valistar look like he had bawlz of steel and there are a lot of the same folks playing Freep now that use to whine and cry a storm about his turtleing.
Hey it's all good.. From my perspective, Freeps too scared to come out and play just means Creeps Win... So keep on turtling and Rage loggin.. lmfao!!!
