Kansas doesn´t have the dig rotation, daily battles, sometimes it takes a week or next Awesomia fight to have a FF at all. Keinan and his town didn´t dig in the last 2 months (as far as I checked at the battle overview, might be longer). There is no FF dug for today or tomorrow. And all this drama for a small towns dig when otherwise there would be no other daily battle?At first, you'll get a few stragglers going to the wrong battle, but over time everyone learns that this is simply spam and to ignore battles dug by that player. NP multi-battles were often 0vs0.
Although yeah it's definitely a thing when someone opens the fort overview, sees 12 battles dug, and instantly closes that game. This is clearly something that could be intervened with the new anti-abuse policy, though.
P.s. It seems that digger did attend the fights but the battles were too one sided with both big alliances mostly joining the defense (except for two fights; 13 vs 22 and 10 vs 18; for comparison, the best attended FF outside of Awesomia in the last 30 days was 29 vs 23).
