Aaaand I finally decided to remove Purge after spending so much time fixing it on my private server.
Since we had finally been able to have them spawn, we decided to go for some actual defense by erecting T3 walls, recruting a lot of archers to place them on top of these walls, crafting doors, and essentially walling ourselves behind a big long high solid wall. Took a few days, and since we played outside of the time restriction I put, we didn’t get purged.
Finally, we had an undead purge coming for us. Icon on the map : they would attack one of the door. We gather there, we wait, purge starts… No ennemies. No instant victory either.
After a few minutes, we realized the purge had spawned well inside the walls, directly on top of one of our houses ( some were even on the roof ). All thralls, except the weaker ones (??) had been killed, most crafting stations destroyed, one house half crumbled.
Needless to say, while we’ve been very patient so far with the endless stream of bugs or unfinished features, having spent days on erecting defenses only to have our town razed by a purge that didn’t spawn where it was supposed to, quite put an end to our adventure. Had we have some walls destroyed legit in battle by a purge more powerful than we were prepared for, it would have been something else…
So yeah, no more purges. It’s just not playable in this state.
