This may or may not be testlive related and also possibly a bug.
I am playing my dedicated testlive server again, with my cousin. Last time we played as a single clan, but I was consistently getting the purges at my bases and she never got one at her base. That could simply just be the odds in my favor, since I had 6 bases. At once point, we thought if she dropped clan, she would have more chance of getting her own purge, but dropping clan caused her to lose ownership of her base, so we clanned back up.
Now we did a fresh start and this time not in the same clan. There have been 2 purges so far. First one was me and so was the second. I play way more and it is my purge meter triggering the purges. However, she was very close to having her meter reach purge range, yet when the recent purge happened to my base, her meter reset to zero.
Is this how purges work on all servers? Purge will reset ALL players meters back to zero?
I have my purge set for only one player needing to be online for a purge to happen. If she had hit the mark before logging off, could a purge have happened to her while I was online, or can a purge only happen at your base if you are online?
Appreciate any expert help!
***** Editing with updates from below: So after more testing, purges aren’t resetting the the other players purge meters, but rather it is just a really fast purge meter decay that is happening when players are logged off. Hopefully this will get addressed to make it more possible for solo, clanless players to achieve a purge.
