Outpost TG blockers : valid tactic or annoying?

I'm fed up with having to draw with opponents, or kill them all if I can be bothered, when all I want is the TG. I loved the "all I want is you TG" confessional thread ages ago but it seems blocking is back as a tactic. So why are people blocking again?

    Mine are there for the taking. I don't put much thought into my defenders but the majority of the time, my defense wins.
    Gotta bring a scout when you're raiding. If the TG are still unattainable, it's bloodshed time. Pick and choose your battles like you said. It can get annoying.

    I always just nick the TG when I raid, or bugger off if I see a blocker or two.

    I'm not sure why people block though, hence the post. Why not just let raiders get the TG and piss off?

    Anyone who blocks/defends on outpost and wants to comment I'm interested why.

    I'm still new and I like the challenge of raiding TGs. Are most people just scouting to the TG's and not even bothering with killing the survivors? Most of the ones I raid, the defense is up.

    Thanks @Mabiki , couldn't have put it better. I just don't know why people waste defenders when the TG are on offer.

    I'm struggling to understand blocking and aggressive attacking when most people are playing nice and making it easy.

    My TGs are scout accessible and not blocked. Though I am in the process of setting my defenders up to be a pain in the ass to those who are looking for a pound of flesh as well.

    Come in peace, take the freebies and be on your merry way. There's no need to initiate hostilities. :smile:

    If you want people to take your TGs and leave, why not make them accessible to any class and not just Scout accessible?

    I remember that experiment @Movado. Then you stacked the team with your pink stars ;)

    Can't it be both?
    In a way, all of us has an El Guapo to face. For some, shyness might be their El Guapo. For others, a lack of education might be their El Guapo. For us, El Guapo is a big, dangerous man who wants to kill us.

    Good question. So I just went into my outpost to rectify that and it seems at some point I did change my set up to enable any class to grab the TGs. And then promptly forgot that I did so.

    @Dodkong Ah, that's pisser. But at least you're doing everything you can. I remember reading awhile back that some folks like @Movado don't bring Scouts when they go raiding... I want to make it stunningly apparent that I don't want any part of that action. =)

    Mine has been open and for the taking for some while now. However I'm abt to change it up tonight and block the tg. Why? I keep getting people attempting to kill my guys anyway and at least half the time I end up w 20-27 more influence points. I'm good. I don't want to go up a new tier, so blocking is the only option unfortunately.
    I think people that don't go for the kill are the minority in terms of the game as a whole, not just the forum.

    I don't kill if I don't have to. A scout can get my tg in one move, but you'll likely end up with hospital time if you choose to attack me.

    I guess, until I get to platinum level III, I will likely kill everyone to advance tiers. At platinum, I would likely just grab the TG.

    And then you will die.

    Outpost was meant for fightinig, not for easy farming and hording TG. I think they need to up the rewards based on hows outpost defense is doing but up the difficulty aswell. Opening TG crate should take like 2 turns to eliminate lame scout farming and force people to play this gamemode properly. Most of the raids are plain boring cause of people like you that only cares about the TG.

    There is no need for fighting. TG is currency. Stars are nearly nothing.

    @ricktada Blocking TGs is valid tactics. Is somebody wants to do so, there is no force to change his/her mind. I remember all those threads about offering free TGs, but it is not working. Maybe for some ppl from forum, but many others care about their TGs even though then are not loosing any.
    I personally raid "only" for TGs too, dont need/want to raise my influence. Even allowing others to raise theirs with my LLS and lvl1 equip. What bothers me is, that outposts are still broken. Being offered same target(with low TGs) for 2-3 times(8 times in row happened too), getting 10+ influence for winning raid, loosing 0-2 influence for lost defence, triggering hero traits that are not present etc. Hope NG adressed those in next update.
    For some time raids were significant part of my gameplay(made myself comfortable reserve of 350k TGs), but now Im going lower and lower, not only because of spending those, but also because of not raiding as much because of said problems. Give me my lust for TGs and blood(sometimes) back.
    Btw if I can, I kill spawned walkers and 1-2 defenders for bonus XP, even in case TGs are not blocked at all. Just trying to avoid hospital time.

    @gespuer yeah I was in the 5k tier but to much effort for too little reward and i noticed alot of ppl on the forum are around 4.5k so wanted to lower to maybe see some familar names also a bit of a social experiment to see if forum ppl (who say they only go for tg will kill my guys)

    And for the philosophical out there, consider this. NML outposts prove that you can have a "tragedy of the commons" even with unlimited resources. What's that say about human nature?

    Its was designed as pvp "kinda" gamemode and you keep crying that you just want to farm TG without any real pvp. Nobody is forcing you to play it anyway since you can earn TG via typical pve gamemodes already. Consider that some of us really want to play more competetive pvp mode with more balanced outpost mechanics.
