Primary reason for what, for building all 7 shrines? I mean, yeah, one of the reasons I like to do that is because of the beams, but that’s just one part. The more important reason is that I get access to all the stuff from every religion. Having the beams is an aesthetic bonus.
But that’s pointless speculation and totally beside the point. We all know how to deal with “Texas sized” purely decorative bases, right?
Every infraction of the rules should be dealt the same way. And anything that isn’t an infraction of the rules should be left alone, and those who dislike it and want it gone should be politely explained what “sharing the server” means and pointed towards private servers that cater to their specific tastes and sensibilities
People build big because they love to build and want to show their builds and talent to other people. Their decission is not made based on some shrines size or lights. People could also build their workstations close together in one small area but they don´t. Because they like to seperate their working areas. Build blacksmiths and lumbermills and all kinds of other stuff. Do you also want to get rid of every station so they are not able do that any longer too? Like @CodeMage said you don´t need to build big, its simply a personal decission.
To be fair I never understood why they made those silly beams in the first place
Reminds me of those old dodgy nightclubs that shine a spotlight at the sky so you can locate them even if you’re drunk out of your mind
I’m indifferent on the topic though yes lights… no lights… whichever we’ll end up with
That doesn’t sound right even if it’s what was said… mostly because that would imply alter lights returning after the event. Who wants to take bets that will happen? It doesn’t make sense to turn off a game feature with the sole reason that it upsets an event especially if there is not back story behind it. No, I firmly believe that is a convenient cover story to something that has plagued the servers (even if cool because I remember my first true base with all 6 at the time lit up)
I can’t see why they would bother to come up with a cover story if it is indeed due to server load. I’m sure most of not all active players would be all for improving server side performance. If that was it I’d be inclined to think they would just outright say as such. In the dev stream it was said that they wanted the event to really stand out so we’re planning to alter some current in game light features. My money is right there.
