I can confirm this is happening to me too, however it only happens after the elevator has moved automatically back to its ‘rest position’. Then you have to click twice because it still thinks it was in the state it was last left at.
Just put your elevator DOWN and then leave the area -> suddenly its up again. And then you need to double click, so that it moves!
Otherwise I found out, it also works with 1 click.
So the problem kinda is, when the elevator is not down, but it was down…
Also sometimes whole camps reset themselves at PvE servers… Which was only in single-player like that.
So I knock out many thralls, to get the T4. Just kill working thralls and keep the fighters knocked out and when I come back, everything is back to it was before I was there…
There is also some cases where if the elevator already down I hop on it and I can’t pull the handle, if I try to pull the chain and jump on the elevator to make it go up, it just literally going trough my body. I have to send it all the way up and down again. It’s pretty annoying considering we have a high Tower base.
Anyone else had this?
