I like Crop Killers, but isn't there some kind of a worm that can destroy whole crops? What is the name of those worms? Maybe that's what we should call them?
then what about:
Locusts: hordes (3-4) high ranks that team up vs the less experienced; or raiders as a group of 1v1'ers
Pestilence: that plague of near-farming that could wipe out this year's crop
Grubs: near-farmers that eat away at the roots of crops
Marabunta: groups of ravenous African army-ant like players that ravage the country side of all living/breathing
Famine: the absense of newbies (unranked ? new recruits for true farmers -- or lesser experienced for ranchers)
Crop Rotation: the act of sharing targeted lesser experienced players by near-farmers (does this REALLY happen?)
.. .oh and the "worms" are probably caterpillars
Captain Blight: if the poster boy for near-farming is conquerer (combine the veg problem with pirate like behavior)
