i had now a few experiences with the game in different Servers and one thing i noticed …
The way people build their Bases is Nuts and unfair - as a new player i arrive at the river and start my Adventure … but sometimes i cant even reach the water , or huge structures block the way to certain NPCs , the complete Waterfalls are blocked , and i thought by myself , lets try to sneak into these bases and have a look and you find 12 big water wells behind each other or 10 altar of the same god etc etc.
The game gives you the Tools to build something nice and impressing , you can even build a huge Village but why blocking so much of the game for other players … apart from that obstruction it is ugly
a friend showed me screenshots of the server he is playing on , and somebody completely fenced New Asgarth and prevented others from entering the Village - simple Question … Why?
A co-worker of mine recently purchased the game and we thought we would start him off on a PvE server just so he could learn the game a bit without worrying about getting wrecked by “alphas”.
Instead what we found was similar to what you just described, just land claim alllll over the place with crazy spamming of structures, and I guess without the inability for other players to destroy those structures, the builds and the land claim just keep getting more and more nuts.
We made the jump to a low pop PvP server and it’s been a much better experience.
i only play pvp as it is part of the game and the survival experience benefits from a threat
i am on a low pop pvp server but i guess there is one dominating faction or Clan , no problem with that but what my point is , making the whole game experience miserable for freshies ( dunno if its a term which can be used here , as i only use it in DayZ ) is just bad and should be regulated on a certain point.
personally I no longer ask the question
it’s fashionable,trolls breed overwhelmingly, many child capricious king are now adults, but what do you want, madness engulfed the world
there are some who must be frustrated, it is built around my base
in PvP that there are vicious strategies does not bother me, there will always be some and that requires adapting and it is often possible to respond to them, which is not the case in PvE and sincerely the biggest problem is the PvE, most of the players do not make a difference.
I really loved this choice offered for different style, an extremely competitive and cooperative environment
when a troll decides to block you in the game, you suffer without being able to defend yourself and some plaver are very well aware of this, that is why they take advantage of it, they risk nothing and very often the attempts at discussion are illusory.
the PvE server has become the reservoir of hyenas and jackals of all kinds
And only the admin has the power to fix it
