It's not about buying them, I think the issue is beating them. Ha.

That's right, it is the Intermediate server.

Let's take a look at the etymology of the word, shall we?

"Intermediate" comes from the Latin "inter", meaning "between", and "medius", meaning "middle". Taken literally it can mean "the middle between" or perhaps "middle ground". Using either of these interpretations, I submit that it is less intermediate to ban shields than it is to allow them because they can be used by lesser-skilled players, such as me, to nullify the skills of more skilled players, such as you. In other words, it places both of us closer to the middle in combat. In picture form:

you............................... me
|------------------------------------|
good.....................................bad


A note: this diagram is not entirely accurate, as I am "smiling" down on the low end of the skill-scale (the skalle).

Here is the scale as modified by a shield:

.............you me..................
|------------------------------------|
good.....................................bad


As you can see, shields place us more in the "middle between", or in an intermediate space.

Your argument is invalid.
