One thing I very much do not like with Travian 4 and the following versions are that we all know where the WW:s will be from the start.
It is much more fun to sit ready when they suddenly appear, without warning, all over the map, and send your settlers, your def and for those who are going to attack and conquer the WW-village to fast make a schedule for that and go!

To have them in an already cramped area is - in my humble opinion - plain stupid.
