I think that playing for tagkills right now is a very good idea for anyone looking to lose this war.
Oftentimes both happen but you're correct. In a lot of cases it makes more sense to kill a stocked restart than a rainbow original and you see that in wars regularly.
The main reason warclans tend to view tk as a measure is to give a concrete point of winning a war outside of the end of the sets. You can say tk is a pointless measure, but honestly so too is the set just ending as a determinate of who won. Thats merely just who was winning when it ended. Wars need a concrete we won 100% measure. And tk is our choice.
Elders have long pushed for tk meaning a win so each member in a war gets their opportunity to wall, and even if you join late, you still get that opportunity. And this concept of unanimous involvement is a way to reach every player in the war, the way they were in times pre-restart bonus.
I know it sounds crazy to try to make standards for everyone to have a chance to get involved stemming from an isolationist war tag like us, but it's the truth. We believe our assertion of tk=win allows each individual to get involved and have some impact. And warring has always been more about social aspects than gameplay anyways.
In any case its better than just killing getafix 26 times because hes the only one in sol who can run a country. Thats not fun for everyone 😂😂
