So we had a 3 player game yesterday.

This is what happened sometime in second age:
Player A said he's going to pillage Utgard and called for battle.
Me and Player B joined in from neighboring provinces.

I won the battle and effectively blocked player A from pillaging.
I got the battle glory.
Player A and player B had to move their soldiers to Valhalla.
I was left with 1 warrior in Utgard.

Now after this battle, I decided to pillage Utgard for myself.
This time around, it was uncontested. Player A and player B did not have any soldiers in neighboring provinces.
So I easily picked up the pillage token. But no battle glory.
I was ok with it since I already had the battle glory from just a few seconds before.

Rest of the players copied this trend.
If anyone were to pillage a province, people would try to block him/her and earn battle glory. After that, leisurely pillage the province in the next turn.

This is totes legit right?

This is a fine thing to do, but thats why you should stock up on STR in a province before pillaging it...

Many times there are more units that could join the battle than there are spaces in the province. So sure, you have one unit left in Utgard, but when you call to battle other players still have units in neighbouring provinces.

If you won with a single warrior either player A was woefully unprepared for the pillage and should have put more units in first, or you spent a high value battle card that’s not coming back.

Utgard has only 3 spots and a Fjord.

Saying for me, i only pillage with only one figue in the beggining of the game, when everyone puts their figures distant from each other, that way i know i can pillage with nobody to try to stop me. Later in the game i try to land more units to be stronger, raising my chances on winning the battle.
