I want to play other games meanwhile (during prime time, after coming home from work), but I feel that if I do, an offline purge will occur, and destroy half my base while my thralls are bugged.
This is for PvE official. Think we could turn off purge for a week or two, until the thralls get fixed?
Purges occur so rarely and sporadically, that your basically more or less waiting around, watching youtube videos, wishing you could play monster hunter with friends right about now.
I was even considering buying a gaming laptop hooked on to sound blasters just to run CE to be on purge duty.
Don’t get me wrong - I love CE. It’s just right now, I’ve come to a point where I feel like I have to log on to guard against a purge that will never happen. The disappointment is starting to wear on me, because this sort of thing isn’t predictable at all.
The Schadenfreude of watching other people quit over this, and their bases being chewed up kinda kept me going as a survivor, but after 3 months of doing this, it’s starting to wear on me.
I have the patience of a saint, but at some point, even I start to question my sanity.
See, some might say “Just quit. Come back a month later.”
It’s not as easy as that. Nobody wants to abandon effort invested. At least I don’t.
