Finished up the 2nd run with more than 6 days left. Didn't rush it at all. Most days did two battles. Just used the light troops and the camel troops.
Unfortunately, that's what I thought. Oh well, I guess I'm skipping this event. I want to be one of the top 100 or top 250 to have only 1 battle won to my name. One can be benevolent as well as a pacifist and still be on topNo, this settlement can ONLY be finished with at least two fights per day. The fights win you loot, loot is needed for your goods production, and you need the goods to unlock advanceents.
It's possible - just highly unlikely since doing some amount of fighting is easy points being left on the table. You need to make and consume a massive amount of goods to make up for not fighting. GBG does allow the large consumption side of it to be more than just pissing it away into a guild treasury - so if you don't mind an excess of negotiations you could get pretty high in the rankings. This just leaves being one of the biggest goods magnates on the server to have the goods to spendno it is not possible to be pacifist and in the top ranking
on beta top 250 have all at least 8600 battles
