THE AGGRO SYSTEM. Right now aggro is sporadic. There doesn’t seem to be any rhyme or reason as to when it works and when it doesn’t. Sometimes it’s “on” in one area and “off” in another. Sometimes it’s “on” during a seemingly-random time of day and other times “off.” Sometimes it’s either “on” or “off” throughout the whole map.
This has a significant impact on purge defense. If aggro is “off” when a base is subject to purge that base’s thralls will just stand around and do nothing. (This is also true for normal mobs who approach a base). There are already discussion threads complaining about do-nothing thralls who just stand around while a base is being demolished.
I ask Funcom to completely disable purges until the aggro system is fixed. Otherwise, all the time and expense a player puts into building a purge-resistant base will be wasted when he or she loses everything.
