What I don’t get is why do you guys still bring this up? There are a handful people in the current make up of our group that were around for that stuff . All the new folks wonder what your deal is. So news flash .. I don’t care about it, I wasn’t around for it, yet at least once a month for 8 months you bring it up..
.
I fight you guys because the way you guys act , I fight you because of what you guys have done in game .
.
You guys on the other hand seem to dislike me, based on what a handful of people did months before there was even a game..
.
All those Pax folks didn’t show up to play the game, so in a way they were removed . The ones who stayed were forced into leadership roles, picked up the pieces and recruited folks like myself. There were like 4 guys from Pax when I joined, and recently they moved out of pax completely. What do you consider your win condition to be on this subject? Do you want the people they recruited like myself to take over a settlement give it a new name and then come fight you ?

Correct. Only the attacking company spends influence.

No limitation on who can be feuded just need the influence to pay for it.

Can have as many active feuds going as you can afford.

During pvp windows while in holding hexes. All settlements belonging to the attacking and defending companies are suppose to be rep free taegets to each other (currently bugged ).

@ Cheatle
Not sure where to start with that ..
.
We are basically fighting over towers except now players have built the towers.. and instead of taking them in one day. It takes 2 days..
.
When you guys took a tower with Hammerfall, ( a meaningless settlement) .. you guys had no issue showing up for 2 weeks to defend it , your numbers and the fact that you set the time to not overlap with any other window ensured you would have numbers to defend it. How come defending that for a couple weeks wasn’t a chore but defending your holdings and outpost are a chore ? Currently nothing is changed beyond what we fight over. It just takes 2 days to claim a hex and three fights instead of one.
.
We had a 30 day cool down when towers were removed and nothing was in game to fight over at all ( so not sure if a > 30 day test was needed). Our numbers dipped. When things got turned on, you guys beat us easily the first couple nights. Third night in we took 2 outpost in different hexes. The following Thursday we thought we would be going after a holding, only to find a bug that an additional outpost was placed . We lost that night and had to start the cycle again. Sat and Sun we had good fights but didn’t make any progress.. Think Monday we took a couple holdings and then were outnumbered 3 -1 Tuesday which we wisely didn’t engage.
.
Wednesday we took quite a few outpost outpost , got accused of breaking an agreement to attack for an hour.. which I think was discussed and understood and corrected going forward.. ( wow diplomacy at work ..)
.
Thursday we took the holdings …. ( you guys say it was not working or bugged, still not sure what that means or what you think is broken, something about ticking down from what I heard in TS.. but the fight I saw should no one really getting in that inner circle and staying there for more than 6 seconds anyway.. )
.
Friday you start asking the devs for a way to ensure a global cooldown after an attack that will basically say you cant be attacked by anyone after a feud expires for 3 days…

.
I am sure some folks dislike you guys enough that if it takes 2 characters to attack you every day then they will run 2 characters from different settlements to do it. So Unless they put in code that will give you guys a global cool down from any attack then the only real option is diplomacy . (btw that global cool down would be abused by everyone all the time, folks would feud their own alliance to ensure they could not be attacked on busy days and what have you … so that should be a non starter to even consider)

As to resources being worthless…. That is on GW to correct.. I still think quadruple the cost of stuff for a month will fix those people that think things aren’t worth anything. I figure everyone stocked piled since May .. holding warfare starts in August.. 1 month of resources using 4 times the amount sounds right to put the value of them back to where they should be.. know who that hurts ?? not us, it hurts the 3 or so new settlements that came online, or any other group thinking about coming in right now..
.

Still do not get why guys don’t think we risk anything in attacking you… can improvements be made sure .. have suggested one that makes complete sense to me… even nihimon liked it but then said what we fight over is meaningless or something ( page 18 )…
.
You then post this stuff is expensive(“You can spend that 100 Influence to destroy a ton of work, resources, and crafting hours by downgrading the outposts. If you do a full 3 day feud, which I believe is 125 influence, you could destroy hundreds of thousands of resources”)..
.
Every settlement has a PvP window, EoX happens to include our EU folks so we try to have a time for them to join in on the fun because they cant make it to your PvP window.. If you guys did attack our numbers probably would be lower due to the time i know i cant make it during the work week, good thing Tink has a sharp spear!
.
So our risk to attack is the same as yours even if you dont see it that way because you dont have people that can play in day time hours for you(we have to declare a set amount of time each day just like you) , You guys are choosing not to attack ( well you did one night But tigari seemed to turn into the little rogue that could ..)
.
I could understand if perhaps you were being attacked by an unaligned settlement stating you feel attackers are not risking anything … but we have outpost and holdings, heck after we take yours over we have to defend them too which spreads us out between our area and yours and its about 20 min run between them..
.
We also don’t show up naked to fights or in T1 gear due to cost.. so dying is expensive since we have gone capitalist since May .. meaning I have to gather mats to make armors and gear for folks that need it.. my time feels like a cost.. that gear certainly has cost .. what i cant make i have to buy ( BTW if it didn’t have a cost why are you showing up wearing nothing but a focus, and why other folks showing up in T1 gear ?)

.
What has really irked me about this post and situation , is you recognize this is EoX vs EBA issue “Right now its a EoX vs EBA situation” . Yet instead of dealing with it among ourselves you guys are asking the devs to make the decision for us…. This should be something you and Phyllain work out. Find out what it would take to limit attacks to every third day .. and go from there.. As to the “what if a third party shows up”… Well we like fighting a bunch, so am sure some folks would see what kind of mercenary services we could provide ( heck they may even try to hire both of us..) in addition Hopes End and the others that may come out to help…
.
If everyone on the server attacked us at once? You guys got that to happen 2 times if I recall correctly.. we have a few treaties on the books because of it.. ( once again diplomacy works..)…

we kill way more of them every time we fight.
Well they did show up naked and in t1 for a few of the fights.

Tink says Stab
I actually do wonder which settlement will be the first to burn. I imagine it will be either Golgotha or Phaeros, depending on which side things are going for when settlement conquering actually goes for.

That seems unlikey. The casualties so far in the war between Phaeros and Golgotha have been Blackwood Glade and Hammerfall. Its much more likely that a side settlement like Blackwatch or Auroral will go first.
Just because this is the doom and gloom thread, and drama/propaganda stuff has been a thing the last couple days.. sorry butterfly guy…

You mean Hammerfall is already casualty ?

The same Hammerfall that took a tower south of ZKM X hex and then held it for 2 weeks? You mean that Hammerfalll was a proxy puppet settlement you guys used to coordinate a nightly defense of 1 tower for 2 weeks?
How come nightly defense wasn’t an issue with a dead settlement defending a tower, but now holdings are an issue if you have to defend them nightly?
just wondering what the deference is ..
Smitty
If holdings and out post are meaningless. . Why is the map littered with them ?

Do we need to quadruple the cost of stuff for a month to get the excess stuff out of circulation ? Kind if hurts folks starting out but would make them have meaning soon..

He was .. full of pride for about 45 minutes after that ..

yea, you're def. talking about Saoirse. i wasn't watching the whole debacle in question, was too busy escaping scott free with my phat lootz. But i will say that to many folks, life and death in the game is…well…life and death. to each his own.
I try not to name folks out right if I can avoid it..
Smitty
That’s why I liked my idea .. just open a second PvP window after a holding or outpost is overrun ..
Gives our side more PvP
It also gives the SE a PvP window to attack our stuff right after their window (so they can try to get back at us in a time close to their primetime playing ..)

So why were those fellows so salty about dying ..

i dunno some people have this…pride thing? i guess?

it's weird. it's like they care or something. can't wrap my head around it.

oh yea! i remember. it was Saoirse right? she was salty about being murdered while afk. even though i murdered dreaden while afk a little while ago….it's all very subjective smile
Well the person in question is a certainly full of pride…
We stood on his head .. waited for him to come back to his key board and killed him when he ran away..
Then he spent the next 20 min spamming general about how we killed him while he was afk….
Not sure what the pride thing was in that situation.. but if you say so…
.
Also tell the same person that if he recruits day 1 new people to explain to them that if they wander through your territory with him 40 minutes before a pvp window opens with a mule.. they might be subject to attack if he is walking with them ..

He was .. full of pride for about 45 minutes after that ..

On Sunday, the EBA decided that our PvP window would be the safest time to do escalations.

They were wrong. smile

actually, lol…..

funny story that. we were only there to kill that hex so it would spawn back in our territory. you did it for us. and it did spawn in our territory. much wealth and phat lootz have been gained since.

Thanks though!
