Clan blocking obs

As others stated they are not blocking access to the ob so they are 100% in the right to build the way it is. Even if they close the doors let’s say during PvP times if on a pvpc server. It is temporary I don’t think that is even enforceable since its a tactic.

…no, if you use the obelisk you can never be sure that the doors are still open on the other side. if they are not, you are trapped :wink: so this is blocking.

It seems they do close the doors.

You do get a Ban if you block Obelisks, POI, and other similar items in the game.

Why would you for what ever reason block them, the only thing you do is make people sad and or mad.

People should remember we are playing with others online, you don’t play with your self.

The server I play on we help all if we can, and trying to get new players to be active in chat. Yes it’s a PVE server.

Still, I’ve played PVP Servers too, and I fail too see why you would even considering ruin others game play doing thins like this, play fair and you will have a lot more fun in the end and ppl might even stay on and give you back for attacking last time, ruin like blocking will in the end give you a ban or people will leave, and how fun is it to play alone online ?.

For that you have single player.

tp naked first. Or just tp to Black Keep or Temple of Frost.

It’s not an exploit, it’s just an annoying thing people can do.

I have something similar different ob. But it’s more of a welcome to this ob build with no doors.

I agree if they close the doors it should be bannable. Again you have to get that proof that its actually happening. Open doors aren’t bannable.

Regarding the building system, although freedom is encouraged through the sandbox mechanics of the game, please remember that there are other players sharing the server with you. We reserve the rights to act upon in cases we deem necessary, such as but not limited to:

Blocking of content in the game, such as dungeons, resources and other areas of the game.

For you that think it’s “fine” blocking Obelisks, might READ the link above.

Issue is they don’t enforce unless reported multiple times by various people.

How about archers and locusts placed inside the room surrounding the ob?

If it’s pve will there be any interaction with locusts and archer’s?

Nice decor, but server #3820 is pvp.

Annoying, yes. But this is a legit pvp tactic that is allowed by funcom. The pvp game is to survive, build, and dominate. Taking strategic control of the map is part of the pvp game. You don’t like them controlling the obi, move them out.

Note, this has been ongoing tactics since the advent of the obi when the game launched in May of 2018. Funcom will not ban or do anything about a clan controlling the obi.

Was flipping with my phone to fast someone else mentioned pve. Pvp he just has to live with it or blow it up. Probably why I don’t pvp.

False, blocking an obelisk in against the rules. It is not allowed and you will be banned.

I believe it is not against the rules on a full PVP server.

Exactly correct.

Abuse of the claim system (claim spam) where blocks are placed for no other purpose than to prevent other player’s access to resources and building spots.

What part of this in the link I posted before is hard to comprehend ?.

Blocking Obelisks are NOT allowed regardless if it’s a PVE, PVE-C, PVP Server.

No where in the rules are there different rules for the servers the rules are the same.

You can and you should be banned for blocking the obelisk, since that’s a “resourse” in the game.

Having the argument just blowing it up is plain stupied, they are there for ALL to use, not for a person or a few to use for the own use only.

Enlighten me to why take me, for an example would be needed to blow up a sealed in obelisk just so I can “use” it when you could 2 sec to replace the wall or door and the problem would be back just as fast, what would I do when I run out bombs ?. Just die and lose all my items due to you thought it would be a good idea to block it ???.

How hard can it be to play like most and just play as an adult and play fair and just stop doing things like this.

You have to be an adult for that. Maybe they should impose a stricter age limit :slight_smile:
Just kidding. I think some actual grownups will be able to act just as bad…

any resolution?

It doesn’t say obs specifically. Obs are a QOL thing, they aren’t necessary to play the game.

And Ignasis has responded in several threads about ob blocking over time… answers like “if the no-build zone is bigger, they build bigger walls” … I’ve never seen an answer that said it was illegal.

war is not fair…
