Shields not working

LadyAquilaLadyAquila Member Posts: 625
I had roughly 15k TG sitting in my Outpost. I got raided 3 times in about an hour and a half and lost over 1500 EACH time!? What gives? Where is my shield? Can I get my TG and influence back?

    Yep, I just got hit 4 times in a row while my shield was supposedly active.

    Shields are definitely buggy. When you make an attack, it is supposed to cancel any shield you have. I have not been attacked in over 3 weeks. There was no reason for me to have a shield up. I logged in and saw that 6 hours of shield remaining. I did two raids and still had 5 hours and 47 minutes remaining on my shield.

    So, it seems that they aren't shielding people when they should be and are shielding people that shouldn't have them. Someone, check the code. There is a negative in there somewhere that shouldn't be.

    I did not get shielded and was attacked three separate times.

    Same thing happened to me.

    I logged in after a couple hours of not playing to find that I had been attacked and defeated 3X in a 2hours span.

    2X by the same player.

    Very frustrating and disappointing.

    Lost a lot of hard earned trade goods and influence that I should not have.

    Play to Slay. Slay to live another day. Daily players. On and killing walkers as often as we can.

    I got raided 4 times while I was asleep last night and definitely was not doing any raiding, I got up for work at 5 am and had no trade goods.

    Shield definitely not working

    Ditto in regards to being raided.
    I never even wanted an outpost but somehow got it "live" without meaning to.
    When I asked on the forum how to delete it - even being prepared to start the whole game over - I was advised to wait it out because I would be taken out of the 'eligible-to-be-raided' rotation if I remain inactive.
    So now as I finally start to accumulate TG so I can purchase decent weapons - I get raided!

    If you're going to change the rules, don't you think you should let the people affected know?
    And if this is how its going to be, I want the option to delete an outpost I never wanted in the first place.
    It's not right to force me to participate in something I do not want.

    Not being raided for not participating in Outposts was Never the Rule.. Just sayin :wink:

    & they did tell us that things were changing in Outposts in an Announcement & no one would be exempt from being raided after Update :grimace:

    I do feel your pain though lol

    It seems there aren't any rules that are currently being followed - but there are gameplay expectations.
    If I was prepared to start the WHOLE game over because I accidentally went 'live' with my outpost and I was advised of a workaround, then I expect that workaround to be in place, or be given another option.

    I did not read that particular announcement. Where was it? All I read was something about improved matching protocols which in no way implies that people that expect to be exempt are no longer exempt.

    A month ago, I was very prepared to start over. It would have hurt, no doubt, but I was prepared.
    Now I have spent millions more in resources building up my account.
    I am no longer prepared to start-over, but neither am I content to being forced to participate in something I don't want to.

    I hear ya & totally get it @smokva !!

    & I believe it was in the Original Announcement on FB when they also introduced Community Challenge & new Update 1.8

    Geez got hit another 4 times before the shield activated. Either something got lost in translation or those were punishments for whining. So I guess it's no longer possible to save for legendary crates anymore or save for special event stuff like Lucille.
  • smokvasmokva Member Posts: 154
    @rgerkman
    I read through everything again and did not find any announcements/references suggesting that non-active outpost players will stop being exempt.
    Would you mind finding that?
    I certainly do not want to make unfounded or unfair accusations.
    If they warned us, and I just wasn't paying attention, then I am going to have to suck it up and apologize.

    I don't remember unfortunately lol
    I do know I read it cause I said to myself.. "Damn! That means I have to start playing with the Outposts!!"
    Maybe I read it ingame? Idk. I will look around though to find it :wink:

    So when is the shield activated then? I've been raided 9 times in 12 hours. I won't have anything left soon. Whatever I don't even care anymore.
  • LadyAquilaLadyAquila Member Posts: 625
    Any resolution or response Mods? This is clearly a widespread issue. I had 3 repeat attacks again last night.

    Not only am I being raided over and over while playing and not playing , I'm also having to search over 100 times or more to even find a battle worth fighting, everything was fine this time two days ago .. this would be a good time for a @staff to pop in and let us know what's going on.

    @zbot any idea if they have changed something ? Outpost was fun again!
  • CindyLouCindyLou Member Posts: 112
    Make that 12 times in less than 24 hours. Was raided three times putting my daughter to bed. I haven't raided anyone.
  • smokvasmokva Member Posts: 154
    @Japes87
    I don't think there is any doubt that this is the result of the update. Or an unreported 'fix' just before or after the update.
    I also think the reason we are not hearing anything from the staff is because at this point they are not quite certain what to say.
    Although, I think it would be helpful if they at least said that.

    I think they added $bots to get people hooked then took them away in the update , I means really .. who has 80-100k trade goods on hand with level 7 uncommon defenders and level 3 zombies? Haha

    Thanks @zbot cheers

    Was raided 6 times in 11 hours for 1631 creates each time, what the shield for if something like this can happen? And how come I can't retaliate it be sweet, if you could reraid someone!
  • CindyLouCindyLou Member Posts: 112
    16 times in 24 hours for me.

    @SlickRick I had gotten up to 3888 was dragged back down 73 points in 4 raids overnight. I don't know if I can earn 150 everyday...which would allow me forward progress. I can certainly do it once and eve better, but how can I manage that as a norm.

    Nay, fix the shield please.

    @lmfgunnut

    Yeah I hear you!! And options are limited since I can't attack you, Pimp, Jester, etc...I'd rather stick to my word than sit here doing raids 24/7 and hitting people I like...I'm going to give it one more day...but if it does it again I'm done...I'd rather stick to more worthwhile pursuits
