Raid Windows - Chaos

Recommended Posts

Currently Chaos raids are happening between 3am to 8am eastern, so they are uncontested. Making defending a nearly 24 hours job. 

 

Before anyone says anything there are raids that do happen during other hours of the day but the primary bulk of raids is in the times I posted above. 


Taken straight from PVP Feedback thread

 

 

  • Deeds can now only be raided during raid windows, villages will be able to pick the time this window opens and this can only be changed every 2 weeks. The window duration is dictated by villager/alliance count and if it's located in the safe zone or not. You will be able to view the window and how long till it starts by right clicking any wall/fence on the deed from any distance. Starter villages will be 100% unraidable.

    • Raid windows will be around 2 hours for safe zones and 6+ hours outside them.

 

The raid windows are focused on giving players control over when people can attack so defending it is not a 24 hour job and people are not trying to find off hours to attack with no defenders.

 

Balancing pvp hasnt been very hot on the to do list but this is mechanic that has already been tried and proven to be good.

Id absolutely be for this if there was a deed limit attached, because we lack some of the mechanics that exist on the other server to stop deeds from being built as crazy monstrosities. So +1 with the amount of deeds a kingdom can have being limited in some form.

agreed, I always wanted to see some cap on pmks so they cant expand like crazy. To allow new comers to have a bit of space to settle in as well.

people don't pay for this game to play in the time zone you want them to play in

Not much pvp on chaos either when groups leave because 2-3 people get a kill against the 15 man group. Or just flat out leave because 5 people show up to defend.

-1. You see how dead defiance is? A 6 hour raid window is ridiculous. Same for a 12. I could go on but it’s pointless.

What about instead of a raid limitation, an increase in drain amount during a certain time? That way groups that enjoy the defenseless raiding can do that, but people who actually want content can do have an incentive to do it.

-1 If you want to play with raid-windows, play on Defiance. We could do with the population boost of experienced and dedicated players to entertain those who are too OP for the rest of us to catch up with and retain on our own server.

-1 if you can run around on an alt for a week straight all hours of the day you can defend a deed. Only reason I quit defiance was raid timers.

+1 There would be more PvP Included in the server with actual people defending the deed, not templars or tower guards

Why would we want to bring mechanics that was a huge contributing factor to the collapse of the defiance population. I mean it dropped from 500+ daily to what an average daily of 20 ppl just skilling on deed, 30 ppl at peak for the 10 minutes of pvp that server generates a week if your lucky???? No thank you!

 

Why are you trying to remove content from paying customer around the world that are not in your time zone?

 

Try recruiting ppl in overlapping time zones like every other kingdom in the history of wurm on chaos, wild, gold etc.

 

Implement 5 consecutive drains to disband a deed, now that I can get behind!
