Yes but from what I heard they also said you will never see a server list and your progression goes with you where ever you go.
So I am wondering how that is going to work with base building, as there are several popular spots on the map that have several bases like the iron fields at tower of bats or around new asagarth, if Fallout 76 is anything like Conan you are going to see people build in the same spots over and over so seeing how they plan to handle two people on the exact same spot will prove interesting.
It is a messy issue and I already said how I feel about it. I mean I love base building just for the sake of base building. As long as my core hut was safe from being blowed up I would be happy to build castles all day for people to raid. Provided I had 2x or 3x the rate of material gathering for basic materials, no fun to build castles to blow up if there is no way to build it as you farmed all the stone in your area.
