I had two bases with lots of crafting stations, one alter and a wheel of pain. After getting back from a trip for 5-7 days it was ALL GONE. What I found strange was that the log only showed a few foundation block destroyed by the ruin system, no sign of what happened to everything else.
I can’t find the motivation for building my bases up again on that official server again, since I would now only expect it to happen again and again. If Funcom are trying to make more people playing on private servers, then they are doing a good job, but I am concerned that lots of people will leave the game instead.
I see someone talking about changing the settings to two weeks instead of one, that would have been very helpful indeed, so count my vote on that! Also, the ruin system should gradually destroy the base, not all at once. That might have been a bug though, I surly hope so, will return to official servers later to give it a try.
