It depends what you’re chiefing. As Burrd said, adapt.
Yeah, maybe chiefing support villages loses value but who cares if it’s chiefed back if it’s a hammer village? They’ve lost their hammer. Purpose fulfilled.
I do agree, that’s an annoying mechanic, though. It doesn’t help so many farms are deleted by travian and turned Natar. By the end of servers there’s less than 100 farms, at least from what I remember of anglo8.
As always, issue comes back around to abuse of the game (outside the rules) and low populations of servers. It’s forever an adaptation to these two until the game ceases to exist.
