    @zoson that makes some sense. But he shouldn't have been on over watch on first round through gate. I think it was retaliation, which might still show 3 since my third survivor still had a move available on the same round...but my attack stunned the bruiser. He shouldn't get a retaliation in that case.

    Nope, survivors get overwatch right at the start. Working as intended.

    Just like the shields are not. It seems to be not an easy fix, but we're working on it.

    Pretty sure the Lucille bug is a tooltip error - every time I hit with it, I get a 3 round stun. Watch the marker over your target, the tooltip is just a guide, not the rule. ;)

    @zoson Not according to patch notes

    Combat Mechanics:
    Human enemies Overwatch when they are Aggressive (aware of player), but do not attack.
    In Outposts the defenders will not Overwatch when the gate is opened, but the following turn, unless they actively engage in combat.

    If you are seeing that defenders get immediate overwatch you should report it as bug.

    Happened to me this morning. Got the message that my outpost had been raided and had 3 hrs of shields. Game did one of its "reconnecting" episodes. Halted game and restarted. Immediately got the message that my outpost had been attacked - a new attack while the game showed I had 3 hours of shields left. Huh?

    Negative, Ghost Rider, they do not. They may go to overwatch on first turn if they don't move or only move 1 AP ... but they don't start with it anymore. I know this because my first move is always to rush in with a bruiser and take one of the defenders out, or move to cover. And they *never* perform an overwatch attack on me when I do.

    Which is why I love it when defenders are clustered together, because I make sure the bruiser's charge attack is powered up, even if I have to wait for an extra zombie wave before opening the gate to do it. Did I mention my main bruiser has Lucille, too, so he's wielding a lvl 17 legendary bat with a 3-round stun? Oh, yeah ...

    Only thing that would be better than Lucille is if Morgan's staff had concussion on it, really surprised it didn't.

    this is getting rediculous. I only get a shield after I've been raided about 6 times. Sometimes I get kicked out so someone can raid me. And I hardly ever win defending my out post and I have a 99 power level which is strange to me. I like this game but come on.

    Yup,

    I'm kinda feeling like a piece of toilet paper myself due to this whole outpost situation.

    @DarkFae

    I'm honestly baffled that some people are just figuring this out now...these people remind me of Rick when he came out of the hospital...whereas the rest of us have been in the middle of a big shit sandwich for weeks :)

    My outpost now has power level of 28. I removed my special walkers and dropped in lvl 8 and 9 survivors.

    I'm done striving for the top. If they make it worthwhile, I have the bankroll to climb back up. Until then, see you all at the bottom soon.

    I'm also randomly raiding camps only to flee and dropping 28/29 influence gifts.

    @lmfgunnut

    Please don't visit me I'm hoping to stay at 0 influence points after the ones I have all get stripped away from me. I have gone from Gold III to Silver and am still falling and would rather keep it that way. Thanks.

    I was attacked 3 times over a 6 hour 30 minute period while I slept. I submitted a support request. However, there are SEVERAL unanswered messages in there. I added #twdsupport NEW ISSUE to the start of the new message hoping it will get someone's attention. I gave them my username here, told them I would post a screenshot, and said I would tag you in my post.

    (I posted this earlier in the wrong forum. I did a search for "outpost shield" and found the most recent post about the problem. I posted this there. Unfortunately, it happened to be in the OUTPOSTS forum and not in Bugs & Issues. Copied it here for that reason.)

    Did you post the right screenshot? If so, I see your problem right there - see the one in the middle? That's a raid - you attacked someone else and failed. So that's only two incoming attacks, not three. And attacking someone else will drop your shield, regardless of how much time it has left. So the screenshot you are showing says you were attacked (shield went up), you attacked someone else (shield would have gone down) then you were attacked again. Not seeing an issue, there, working as intended. If you didn't do that raid in the middle yourself, you might want to be checking your phone to see if someone's playing it while you sleep ... got a roommate?

    Which is why I ask if perhaps you posted the wrong screenshot?

    DITTO!!!
    THIS NEEDS TO BE FIXED!!! I have this. Happen frequently, even when i log on ,see i got raided twice,i don't do any raids because that deactivates your shield,sure enough ,i get hit again a couple hours later.I have level 19 normal and tank,level 17 armored,yet level 18 teams run right through my nearly maxed out walkers.I cant wait til i get my people to 18,so I can do the same to them.

    I mainly find it annoying because they take the same amount of TG each time, it doesnt get reduced each time.
  • lmfgunnutlmfgunnut Member Posts: 1,636
    @blynknz I really believe that is related to your TG count not updating until you log in.

    If you can't fix it Scrap it. Stop giving us a false sense of security.

    At least scrap the shield concept so I can benefit from hitting people over and over until they abandon the game and I'm the last one standing.
