I play on official PvE 2017.
I started again after a long break from playing and decided to build south of Sepermeru, a player was located nearby but I was not blocking him from building in any way and was only intending to use this as a temporary base to gather a few thralls before moving on.
2 days after I founded my base I noticed that my neighbour had started to build a wall around me, I messaged him asking him not to block me in, he then tells me that this is his land because he has been playing for 2 years and he has claimed it.
I asked him to allow me to gather my stuff and leave but he had already mostly walled my base in so I decided that it would not be worth my effort to move my belongings and leave myself with nothing, I again asked him to leave an open door so I can go.
He has now started to expand his base to lag inducing size, I honestly don’t know why this game doesn’t limit your building on official servers, his is not the only base like this.
I then told him that Funcom would ban him for doing what he was doing to which he said “Funcom will do nothing”, funny thing is that he was actually right it seems as I have still received no help despite reporting this almost 3 weeks ago.
I have been playing since this game released on Xbox and this is the first time I have had this happen, I only play on this same server unless I am wanting to try PvP.
I was hoping to get my stuff back as I have continued mining what few resources that spawn in my small enclosure, I am now losing all hope of actually getting any help, I have messaged “Derketo” who answered my initial request but have not received any response aside from being told that they are investigating. I appreciate that there might be a lot of similar issues occurring throughout all the official servers but how long will I have to wait?
I have also noticed the server quality seems to have degraded massively since I last played thanks to players building huge bases that span multiple map squares, often to the point where if you get anywhere near a mega base the game obviously lags, am I going to encounter the same issue somewhere else and experience the same wait hoping for GM help except that the next time I will have gathered even more belongings.
Should I just quit now or will I get help?
