So I started a new job a couple of weeks ago and my Exiles time has been pretty limited lately, but I still managed to wander around to all of my bases as to TRY not to lose them to the STUPID ruin system. So I hadn’t meandered over to my main and original base in a few days and tonight I get around to it and pretty much everything is gone!
Of course this is where I had stored the majority of my acquired items including Keys to legendary chests, my gold and silver reserves, and several thralls, weapons, and other resources that I spent countless hours acquiring. This is unacceptable and I guess I’m pretty much done with this piece of crap game. I see no reason to put forth the effort to acquire all of this, build all of this, when it can just be whisked away by a stupid and shortsighted ruin system that was never even explained or even outlined.
I had thralls dying since the inception of the feeding system, even though I kept my thrall pots filled regularly. I lost parts of bases due to purges, 90% of which I was not even online to defend against. But my main base was built upon a mesa and purges were not able to destroy the most important parts of it. My bridge (that is normally damaged in purges) was still intact, walls around the base were still intact, but the actual base with all of my storage and crafting stations, is just gone.
This was hours upon hours of exploration, building and repair, collection, hunting. religious zeal, etc. all gone to waste due to what has to be the stupidest and most unfair aspect of any game I have ever played, the ruin system. What’s even worse, the stupid event log no longer specifies that I lost something to the ruin system. It doesn’t specify what I lose anything to. It just tells me blah blah blah blah “destroyed by”, and that’s all.
I should have known better than to even try to enjoy this game. What the hell are people supposed to do? Not work? Never take a vacation, move to a new home or change ISPs? I’m so sick of game developers expecting people to dedicate their entire lives to a game, just to try and keep up and/or be competitive. I still just can’t believe it. I’m so aggravated that I wish the terrorists would just win.
I’m so glad I never purchased any DLC for this piece of crap and I will never purchase another product from these clowns that decided this ruin system crap was a good idea. The dang thing could have at least been explained, on the dang server somewhere, at some point. I could understand had I just not signed in or played in a couple weeks or so, but in just a few days? Absolutely ridiculous! I’ve never even seen more than 12-15 on a 40 person server so I don’t understand why such a short time period to go into ruin is necessary.
Congratulations, I now associate this game and company with other bottom feeding morons like EA. Now I have to contemplate whether I ever want to play this game again. But I guess I had better decide in the next 24-48 hours, or this stupid game might just ROB me of every other effort that I’ve made on it.
Makes me sick.
