Land Claim Question

Personally, the pictured structure is nicely done for one, and I would not see any issue with it. (Granted no idea of location so POI/special spawn issues I can not say). Heck, I seen bigger structures on official servers I play on. I am guessing its roughly 40 by 50 in size (with or minimal blocks between the walls and castle. Meaning it probably only takes 1% of a map zone block/grid.

Thinking about it, I think some of the zen-reports are probably people who dislike another player/clan which is causing more grief than necessary. That is my guess.


I been lucky with the officials servers I played on so only heard of one report or issue in the years playing. Granted, may not know about issues not discussed. And the issue, was related to actual griefing against other players.

So all this issues of land claims and build sizes is not something I heard people complain about server side. Even with 1941 had that mega build that went across the map (a road that went from the south - exiled river area to north - ice giant area and east - mounds of the dead to west - not sure where it ended to be honest), with maprooms, small bases and the huge base (with very tall foundation walls) that surrounded the New Asghaard city 4 map blocks. Had to be few hundred thousand blocks to build it all. Even the road climbed up the top of the bat tower for example. Initially, we thought it was part of the game since it was so massive. It eventually disappeared (decay or removal) - no idea, never did ask. It was there for at least 2 years though. I started in early 2019 and was still there in 2020. It obviously was there in 2018.

That’s exactly what I tought, we never claim spammed on purpose, but I guess some of our maprooms or wheels got into the claim spam definition they have and we don’t know about it. They NEED to be more specific with the definition cause everybody is abusing the reports and people that play fair like us is getting unfairly banned.
But, on the other hand, we were fighting against a clan for the alpha and they reported another clan this same week and they got banned too, so I guess it was the same clan abusing the report system.


What counts as land claim spam is completely ridiculous at the moment. Endless rows of foundations spammed all around a base should be indeed wiped, but a well guarded base with reasonable surrounding structures should not. You should be able to build walls and other things to be able to defend against raids as well as purges but no, as soon as you do you are suspended. And not only from the server in question but from every official server so all of your plays are messed up just because someone didn’t get to build where you did and reported you. And yes, we are aware of the building rules.


Probably not, no.

IMO that base is fine. The problems are multiple though.

  1. The only people who actually are able to answer you are the individuals making the direct decisions.
  2. They are indeed individuals so each will have a slightly different take - and there’s seems to be a large enough difference between them that it’s noticeable.
  3. The people who can answer you will not do so. They say they will, they claim you can ask and get answered but it’s rarer than hens teeth to actually receive an answer. One of the clans I’m in for example asked directly in PM to @AndyB and was acknowledged furthering the question to Zendesk. It’s been over a month now and just crickets. Many other such examples exist.
  4. Such a base will not even be considered for demolition unless Zendesk receives a report on it. How convincing and how many similar reports they get on that base may play a roll in their ultimate decision. It for sure goes from 0% consideration to some much higher percentage with the first report anyway.

If you have any additional question regarding the status of your own account, please feel free to reach out to their team over on Zendesk as they will be able to provide you with the inforamtion.

Why did you paste a reply from a moderator as if it were your own?

Thank you for editing it. It might be confusing for noobs and such - was what I was thinking.

The build in the video seems to be fine, and not violate any ToS.

The big points tend to be avoiding despawning nodes or NPC spawns; blocking access to players passing through; and claiming more land than is necessary.

As long as you build in a way that avoids these issues, the worst risk would be the amount of decorative placeables. Or someone reporting you because they are toxic. Otherwise, looks like a beautiful build idea and I wish you luck!
