  1. So someone outside a closed building could trigger the timers even though the tames are not physically rendered. Also explains why kiters lure tames away from bases.
  2. How exactly do the claim timers for tamed dinos work on official PVE servers? Does the person have to physically see the dinos (as in they need to be rendered) to have the timers reset, or do they just have to be in the dino's vicinity to have them reset? Or does the person just need to log in to have the timers reset on all their dinos on that server?
  3. This is something that really needs to be addressed. Many who play PVE (myself included) do so to avoid the raiding-offline and otherwise-that is so prevalent in PvP. We also enjoy the other aspects of the game such as taming, building our bases and socializing in global and tribe chat. I've made some good friends through my PVE gameplay and would like to continue doing so. Those budding friendships are being jeopardized by people's frustrations with this kiting. They are discouraged by this and many are thinking of leaving the game because of it. I have notice a growing number of PVE folks who are fed up with the allowance of this exploit, and the acts of extortion that many of the raiders are doing to the communities on these servers when they are caught by the tribes being attacked. Not very well-played on WC's account. I'd have to check with my engineering friends, but I'd be willing to bet a simple if/then command added to the Rock Elemental's program would solve the issue by making it so the elemental wouldn't attack a player's base if the tribe members are offline. Another solution would be to make Elementals easier to kill. The AI for the elemental is not inherently aggressive unless provoked or activated by proximity.
  4. I did. Waiting to hear back from them. Also sent them the screenshots taken of the conversation btn a tribe member and one of the attackers demanding our Golem as well as screenies of the attack. My tribemate also sent in a ticket about the attack with a video of the attack on his house. Pity they feel the need to act like this. Kind of spoils the game for folks just wanting to have fun.
  5. It is rare to find a community that works together, helping other players when they encounter a problem or find themselves short on supplies while taming. Or, as was the case for my tribe on 759, when our base was being attacked by unscrupulous individuals intent on destroying everything we'd spent months building. Thank you to everyone who helped kite away the rock elementals that OMG was using to break into our base, especially Neximus and Alevia who came to my aid when I screamed in panic during the attack. Also thanks to everyone in global chat for your moral support . Knowing you all have my back is a big relief, and I hope we can be just as helpful and supportive when anyone else is in need of assistance. You folks are the best!!
  6. By allowing kiting they are allowing unscrupulous folks to use it as an exploit, breaking into people's bases when they are logged out, killing their dinos and stealing their stuff. How is this acceptable behavior for PVE? WE have had a recent spate of kiting attacks on 759 similar to 795 as can be indicated by my previous posts. When the people doing the kiting are doing it specifically to eradicate another tribe's base for the sole purpose of stealing their stuff then it should be a bannable offense. Even my husband who works in the industry pointed out that it is an exploit. If someone in the industry can see this then why can't WildCard?
  7. Yeah they can wreak havoc on them. I logged in at 10:45 Eastern time to them once again trying to kite two more elementals onto our base. Thanks to the help of others on the server we were able to thwart their efforts. The did damage a few of the gates but didn't get through. I think I"m going to have to find a way to get a giga as a guard dog! We are going to spend the evening putting up metal pillars to keep them at bay. Can they destroy Behemoth stone gates? we have a few up.
  8. As the other person stated they had rock golems that could kill anything other than the golems set up as sentinels on their base. We have the same thing, as well as the zombie fire wyvern who easily kept any errant aggressives from doing too much damage. Wild rock golems do not actively attack bases as wyverns and rexes are meant to. They have to be purposely lured to the area being raided by the individuals involved. THIS IS PVP BEHAVIOR PURE AND SIMPLE!! We specifically chose PVE to avoid this!! Many do not have easy access to a giga or don't want to put pillars up everywhere as it makes it difficult for the larger dinos such as the rexes, Morellas and wyverns to get around on the ground (in the case of the wyverns). As it is we were trying to avoid blocking the causeway leading up to our plateau so that folks had access to the resources up there. Sadly we have had to surround our plateau with gates. Quick question: Can golems get through the small gates? if not then you could put some of those up as well as deterrents They also don't disappear as often as the pillars do..
  9. My tribemate logged in yesterday around 11 to find two members from OMG kiting a golem through our base. He only caught one player's name. When my tribemate confronted them they demanded he give them one of our wyverns and our high lvl rock golem in order to get them to stop the attack. THIS IS EXTORTION!!! We have worked long and hard to establish a working community, priding ourselves on our willingness to help others.To have idiots like this come on our servers for the express purpose of callously destroying bases to steal stuff is unconscionable! They actually kited two elementals to our base from what I can glean from the tribal data. I lost my lvl 59 rock golem and our zombie fire wyvern to the first one ( a lvl 45 golem) To their credit our dinos must have done some serious damage to the wild one before it was presumably destroyed. Then they kited a lvl 40 elemental up there. Both Mars and I have submitted reports on this harassment asking that these individuals be banned. Neximus, who helped Mars during the attack and helped kite the golem away was able to get video of the attack, plus multiple screenshots of the incident. These have been submitted with the reports. Many on this server are on 592 where we have a good working community as well and came to this SE server because of that. Sure, there are those who cause mischief, but not to this extent and not to demolish other tribe's bases. Wildcard needs to address this issue NOW!!! I wholeheartedly approve of the idea of offline raid protection from the heaviest hitters like the elementals, gigas, death worms and wyverns that are kited onto folks bases by these players.
  10. My Morellaops got stuck at +52% because of the Mantis egg request. Please fix soon!
  11. I've found Rare Mushrooms while farming berries with my Morello. I get one or two each time i go out farming. Takes a little while but you can save them up to use for taming a Roo.
  12. That is not always the case. GM Jaeger was kind enough to help straighten out our problem. My stuff and dinos are now a part of my new tribe, and I can again spiff up my boat and original place. They understand that mistakes happen, and they were kind enough to help us fix it. Kudos to Jaeger and his phenomenal way of making an entrance! Also thank you to Wildcard for your prompt response to my query. I highly recommend filing a report if you find yourself in a similar situation.
  13. Luckily my house and a few of my boxes are still accessable as well as 4 of my 6 dinos. The other two we will just have to wait until their timers run out and claim them then. Fortunately I had just fed them so hopefully they won't starve. I may just have to wait for the timers on the chests and smithy to expire then demo them to get the materials. Hate to have to rebuild that stuff but at least the structure doesn't need to be replaced. You'd think that, with the number of folks who run into this problem, they'd have a workaround for this. They should just put you back in your old tribe if you get kicked from your current one and you were the only member of your old tribe. That way you could correct your mistake and merge instead of joining the new tribe once you re-join your old tribe.
  14. Yesterday we were trying to merge my tribe with another one, but I accidentally ended up joining the other tribe instead of my tribe merging with it. Now two of my dinos are listed with my other tribe and I can't access quite a few of my storage chests, smithy and gates. I was the only one in my original tribe so I can't ask another member for help. Is there anything I can do to get my dinos and stuff back? I thought someone mentioned having the admin of my new tribe kick me so I can get back in my original tribe, but not sure if I'll just be put back in my original tribe as a default since I was the only member. Any opinions would be helpful.
  15. I've gotten in the habit of checking this topic before logging in to see if there's any problems that day. Sadly, it looks like the latest patch did diddly-squat.
