I am in a special situation and asking for your meaning.
I am living on my spot not too far from the black galleon now for more then a year on a PVE Server.
Some months ago I logged in and found, a neighbour had settled near my base. Ok. Then I reallized very fast that he had done what I call “aggresively building”. I could not expand any more In that direction. He had an area claimed I guess 10 x greater then mine (around 40x40 or more). No problem at first, but there are 2 passages near. One of them was secured with a door.
Honestly , I was a bit angry about. Could this guy not have respect and settle down a bit more far away from me ? And - on the other hand - why the heck secured pasages you need free to travel the map without going massive extra-miles.
I did something I regret later, as it was impulsive and not friendly. I tracked a boss crocodile to his base, were it killed some of his slaves. This was a bit exaggerated I realized and feared he would pay back in a similar manner. He did not. But closed all the doors. I understood this as “valid” revenge. But nevertheless, the passage now was also closed to a village nearby, were you could take slaves.
Ok, so we lived in “neighbourhood” for several weeks. I was really not happy with him. Always the blocked doors disturbed me and the lack of possbility to expand my base in that direction. Think you have a house and a neighbour blocks your ways to the street
Finally the big day came. His base decayed and I could help with the “last mile”. At once I secured the area around my base , the way up and the way to the village. I think around 20 squares in the direction, so only a quarter of the space he had before. Conscious I let open all the pathways. Thanks to Crom! He was gone.
But I was wrong as I saw some hours later. Coming back to my base from the other side, I stumbled in a big wall! he had logged in an at once startetd to claim his territory as far as possible. No problem for me, but why again blocking the pathway ? I was so happy that I had secured the area before. I can take another way, that leads through a passage near the giant crocodile over the river up a hill where stone-noses live.
But what was that: A wall was there in that passage, so that I had to climb above. And that was not all. The passage along the river to the black galleon was also blocked with a wall. I fear he will also block the passage - the shortcut where the river makes a loop around the black galleon. This is part of his claimed territory. I knew that but intensiously did not claim that as I did not want to exaggerate my securing. It can easy happen that 2 enemy clans start to claim more land then needed. What I took I will use (temples and other big buildings) in the near future. I hate the situation!
I have no possibility to chat, we are on xbox and I do not use mic/headphone.
What do you mean ? I think it is too little to involve funcom in our little private war. The land I took is a bit more I need, but other buildings are much bigger… so I am unsure relating me.
What he does is blocking importan ways. I guess he was total angry yesterday, but it was not my fault his base decayed and I used at once my chance…
I hope you have a bit fun reading this, I take it with humour, it is only a game. But I am unsure if one of us or both are acting bannable here ?
