    If you are trying to lower your influence and get better matches, setting up a weak outpost would seem to be the ticket.

    Yeah. Like the naming. Let's just hope people do pay it forward rather than take advantage.

    I've dropped below 3k now. I'm sure I'm out of your range.

    It looks like someone didnt get my message, or maybe it was me who didnt write my message right? :smile:

    No walkers at all, all 3 defenders are set to defensive mode.

    Thanks to my awesome out-of-the-box defenders with their level one weapons, I've never won a defense. I have a large roster of real survivors, and it takes me a long time to level everyone. So it'll probably be forever until I need to rotate in a good crew from cannibalizing those slots.
    I just go a viking when raiders come in and slaughter them, like some do. I have no problem staying very mediocre in influence. Despite my best intentions, there have been fatalities raiding. Sometimes my folk, sometimes theirs. I do try to keep it to a minimum, but sometimes someone says something, and one thing leads to another, and well--you know how it goes. I really like the flexibility to play this way. We'll see how it lasts.

    @OneLessTitan, have you thought of propagating this in the Outposts Discussion category? Haven't seen any talk there about this.

    I suppose it's a concern for some. I did have someone come in and slaughter my ducks. Took 2 gas and 5 minutes to repair the damage, against a crew that determined to put up resistance. Then back to no-kill raids. Also, I can make up the difference between tiers in a session of raiding and/or challenge missions. Or not, I don't care. If you do, this is not for you and carry on. For me, there are two ways to fail a raid, the normal way, and if I have to kill all 3 survivors. Sanctuary at home, sanctuary on the road.

    You are very welcome @Japes87 the cookies were delicious & I hate doing the dishes so big thanks for that.

    I hope you visited me when I was at my lake house where there's no fatties/armoured & just crappy common with level 1 gear.

    I've just moved back to my rural fields residence until I see what the new outpost update brings tomorrow

    I really liked your idea @OneLessTitan , but like others I thought it wouldn't work because of the competitive nature of gamers higher up on the ladder. That's why I decided to drop down a few tiers.

    I figured if everyone interested could set their influence to around the same number, we could put the match making system to the test. I dropped down to 1696 and I am having easy raids, but I'm willing to share the love.

    I tried starting my own thread on it here:

    Anyway here's a few highlights from Saturday morning, most of these took place in a very short period of time (I was at the tail end of a gas booster)

    Yeah, I think you're on to something. I murdered my way to gold tier for the end of the cycle and now it's guaranteed hospital time for most raids. If I had a stack of gold bars it would be sustainable. But the reality is, it's just not worth it for me for 1000 TG one shot to have the extra healing time. I'll raid a bit more for walker pit festival, then it's lab rat 691968 signing out. They can gather that data: raids once before signing off for 8 hours, hmmm curious, most curious...

    I LOVE the nod they've given to higher influence players in the trade store, and the super cycle double rewards, but....

    I was in gold 1, which would earn me 8,000 at the end of the Super Cycle? TBH, I earned that much last night on the toilet. Seriously. And if more generous people joined me in Silver? Even easier!

    They've pulled out the sorting hat for the lab rats and are going at full court press. They want everyone raiding their hearts out for data gathering purposes. Especially murdering other survivors at max capacity. At least Stheevie has been very up front about it on the forums. I don't think my career here has been very typical, so I don't feel a great need to fall in line now. But maybe it is, only the masters of the data hoard know for sure.

    I don't mind being a data monkey, seems usually changes are for the better, even when we don't like some of them.

    But if I see a legal way to maximize my game play? I'm on it!

    I'm surprised I've played as long as have, and they keep finding ways to keep me interested. I'm very curious to see what they do with challenges down the road.

    How can you move the TG as I have not figured it out yet? My TG is behind the fences in 1/1/4.
  • DLichDLich Member Posts: 5,554
    @Wolfhawk you can't "move" your TG crate. You can select a different outpost map for the final section in your edit outpost screen. Each map gives 4 choices. If you're using choice 4 to "move" it select a different option.

    This is mine since 2.1 rollout. No armored walkers. No fatties. Just some 19 lvl normal walkers. TG chest next to gate for easy retrieval. But defenders will defend themselves if being attacked. Maybe later will be replaced by low level team if everyone is adopting this strategy.

    That's mine, also. And still I get folks trying to kill my defenders. One guy recently tried twice and lost both times. :)

    I guess some folks need the IPs to maintain or move up and others like the challenge. Different strokes...
