Big weekend for our tribe, our alphas got hit by 2 titans! at the same time, they battle logged ( ORP server) but still ended up losing 75% of their base.
We know this was coming so for a while so we decided to relocate our base and tames to avoid getting hit ourselves, (We live on the center) currently were in the process of moving all of our gear and blocking up our new base location (floating island!) we have completely blocked one entry to the floating island, the huge entry to the lake in the middle of floating island on the east side of the island, we just plugged that up with 3200+ pillars from top to bottom with a metal behe gate at the bottom, the highest pillar wall in the line is over 80 pillars!, i was concerned about the build limit as we have 40+ lines of said pillar walls.. i calculated , that's not including supporting ceilings we needed to use. all up the wall is around 4000 pieces. still a fair bit under build limit but for one wall.... we call that our big d wall.
this was a strategic move, we know were next in line for the titans as we are now the alpha tribe after the weekends ordeal.
But now we own the floating island, turret towers at every entry and one of these walls to be installed behind each turret tower in the future, we have already blocked down every drop location we have found on the floating island. now there is no way we can get a visit from a titan!
Tonight since the 3x is finished and breeding onslaught finally eases we have around 100 dinos left at our old base to transfer over. Hopefully we can withstand any heat coming from the other clustered servers and take control of one of the most epic building locations on the center.... the center.
We are on a Official ORP cluster witch hosts all the maps, the guys with the titans are the aberration alphas, their main weapon of choice is reapers. lucky for us we have just trapped a 150 reaper over the weekend and have two 225 reapers growing, plus a butt load of gigas waiting for there arrival. for the time being, the floating island move was the best choice we made and now have the 100 turret cap in pretty much every corner of the inner island, we have our own private lake which is great for the dimetrodons and whats better is the beaver dams are still spawning.
If anyone ever thinks about taking the floating island, and it's viable for them to do so, i suggest you do, i believe this is the best location we have built at so far and iv had 3k+ hours in the center, close to everything, above most of the map, isolated. perfect!
