There very well could be variance in the ownership of massive footprint homes, but the "us vs them" dichotomy would prevent it from being seen. I don't feel like I'm being told that I don't "deserve" a keep. In fact, i would say it's quite the opposite. New players here are given a jump start by the older veteran players and everyone in between. This can be seen in the free resist events, bard houses, pet resist, taming houses, housing contests, etc (all of which have been free). If you're goal is a keep, then you've been given the tools to acquire it.
