Game mode: Online official
Type of issue: Bug
Server type: PvE
I logged in at night to do random things and while I was wandering around my main base I noticed several naked corpses outside my base walls. I didnt understand what was happening until a wave of naked NPCs appeared and attacked me, it was a Purge attack but I was not expecting any attacks considering my low Purge meter.
My last Purge have been months ago, before the meters broke and several people couldnt build up their meters anymore. Since this incident my Purge meter slowly depleted until it was zero and remained like this forever. Some recent changes supposedly fixed it, but I have barely been active these days, and my Purge meter build just a hair.
When I was attacked last night, I had no visual warning (I logged in in the middle of the Purge, but should still have some kind of map pointer?), No sound between waves, no text warning, nothing. Something else caught my attention was the kind of enemies attacking me, naked exiles… lol, but some even had fire orbs. My base is somewhere near the Pirate Ship and I have never seen this kind of Purge before. I have been attacked by spiders and locust in the past and only heard of naked NPCs throwing orbs in the far north.
At the end I got no warnings to tell me the Purge was over, I could only know when I was allowed to build again. So it was all a real strange experience.
