Just an update. Another bunch of random players just started spiking the entire SW quad, and as you can see killing tens of thousands of troops in a short amount of time.
We're not as affected as Lowlands and I don't know to what extent other quads are spiked, but I can only imagine how shitty it feels right now to be in SW quad when almost all their farms are spiked.
*edit* looks like we're heavily affected as well, in particular our top raiders lost several thousands troops. fun.
