Hello, I am very sad and this is my story…
I rolled on 1800 official server and worked hard building a fantastic base, fully enclosed, many many doors thick, etc etc. Then one day, every item was gone, just straight up gone. No damage to anything but every crafting station and any chest left unlocked was totally emptied out. At first I thought it must be some serious cheater but I wanted to further confirm that so I asked other players to come check my base out. As I asked around and mentioned the name shown in the logs then others who had played on the server for a while knew what happened. So I learned that a large clan keeps tons of characters logged off in all of the best base spots for the exact purpose of logging in and body vaulting peoples items from within their base. I’m told that this has been happening to new players who join the server and build in these spots for months. The cherry on top is that the clan doing this login-theft doesn’t even play on this server, they just login to troll.
Lockable crafting stations would put a bandaid on this… but a better longer lasting solution would be a mechanic where if you logged in on another player’s land claim then you get teleported to your bed/bedroll/desert or at least teleported out of the land claim (actually, just outside the landclaim is the best option if it’s doable, otherwise getting dc’d in a raid would be a bigger pain).
I hope this reaches the right ears because it’s pretty game breaking and could get much worse overtime if it picks up popularity with trolls.
For me, I really don’t know if I can keep playing. There is no other server with low ping and decent population for me… and it’s just depressing. Even if someone wipes 90% of your base with a god you still have your spot, so you can rebuild and most importantly you can work towards getting revenge. Having an enemy who doesn’t even play the game, who only logs in to troll, and who is logged off in the heart of your base? There is no recourse to that, not a damn thing I can do against it.
Currently, players are able to login while inside another player’s base. This allows them to bypass blowing any doors, grab their enemy’s stuff, then just log out with everything. A good fix would be to have any player trying to log in on another player’s land claim get teleported out before they can cause unfair mischief.
