Have you ever had problems with unwanted neighbors? On Sunday the Battle Herald witnessed the DAoC way of dealing with them. Following the Albion army lead by Gerreniel on their quest to throw all invaders out of Albion while keeping hold of the two stolen Strength relics in Caer Hurbury and Caer Renaris, the Battle Herald was lead to Caer Berksted Outpost which was occupied by Hibernia and already under siege. When the fighters from Albion arrived at the scene, the door was already smashed open and the Hibernians had retreated to the higher floors. Still, the Albion army wasn’t able to enter the ground floor, because that was occupied by several raiders from Midgard who defended the entrance as well as the stairs.

As the legitimate landlords, the Albion forces decided they would rather destroy the building that let it stay in the hands of their enemies. And after being hit with the combined power of two trebuchets fired at it, the outpost tower crumbled to dust – uniting the troops of Albion, Hibernia and Midgard on ground level for the final stand. The Albion army that had surrounded the tower had no major problems in winning the fight against the squatters who were disoriented from the fall.

Probably not the normal way, but it solved the problem, right?
