This is on a freshly wiped and reset server. The purge meter filled as it should, and finally actually initiated as it should when the bar filled up, so both those are good and an improvement.
However in Funcoms attempt to prevent people from creating un-aidable bases they screwed the whole system up. Now at least half the purge spawns in the upper levels of a base, even when the base is built on open terrain fully connected to land.
It’s such a stupid mechanic that it’s funny Bethesda level shlt, I really wish I had recorded it because it was comically bad.
Just imagine defending a 6 x 6 three story tower in the middle of the open on noob river with no other defenses except 8 shalebacks and 2 crocodiles. Then the purge happens (it’s exiles) and for a while everything is fine and fun, then on the 4th wave we hear fighting but see no exiles. I become curious and walk over to his tower behind us, where I hear noise coming from.
I open then door and am run over and pushed aside as all the pets outside the tower (9 total) rush into the tower and begin slaughtering everything is sight. Two more waves spawn in the top floor of the tower while this is all going on, and the floor was littered with at least 25 or 30 exile corpses our clan mates top floor bedroom.
Please fix this, it’s really stupid.
