I doubt I’m the only one who has been having the same issue. I’ve played on 3 official servers and the general story goes as followed…
Join server, large clan gets crush and gives up, server pop slowly dies when multiple large clans leave and people jump ship… 1 more server joins the grave pile.
Personally I think that the game should not be played indefinitely due to it’s survival nature (destroy or be destroyed). Official servers should have a set cycle like 2 months resets. This would allow fresh starts and give people that race to the top on equal footing.
They could also give more exp for killing mobs and gathering/crafting so you can play normal while still staying competitive.
The last thing that would REALLY add a great sense of survival is if the Purge worked. I had the opportunity to experience it on a private server and it was awesome trying to hold back a hord in the little sandstone base. On Public servers maybe they can increase the Surge hord based on clan size.
Not sure if this reflects anyone else experience so far.
