I never had a hull broken either @Rain ... till i did...Not necessarily disagreeing with your frustration, but... I am solo since day 1. I have a base i usually keep out on the map for 2-3 days at a time. I have never had a hull broken, ever. And it was only last week that i had my first box broken into, and I probably could have avoided even that. I'm playing in NorthAmericaEast tiles, surrounded by wars, and yeah i have only ever killed one person but somehow i have not had the terrible time of having to redo walkers/bases every few days either. So idk.
i went from day one after the server offline issue to just last week before i eventually got hit.. It is what it is, pulled a backup ship and started to rebuild... that's the game, but then i got hit again, 3 days later, 30 seconds after putting my broken ass walker back together. As i approach the "L" zone about to log it out .. Oh wtf, i am PVP tagged..great... Now in a 20 - 1 i fight till i used up all 39 respwans ... There goes 3 days of farming and a 2nd ship.. OK.. fine.. 2 wrecked buffalos sitting on the side and they zeroed out a clan mates tobogan who was carrying some of the sullies for the rebuild... Pull my last buff and start farming again.. 4 days later, i rebuild everything sitting up in a gully on a mountain with literally NO visibility from anywhere and post 3 scouts from my clan on the adjacent peaks next to trees watching the only path up the mountain as well as the back side slopes and one in a throw away stiletto blocking the path near me....
All was good, we built the new tobogan and almost done when .. WTF was that a ballista bolt? Oh look it the chinese buffalo moving up the hill at mach 1 with 25 guys in iron... No idea where it can from or how we never saw it till it was on top o f us... Hey fuck it.. here we go again...my 5 guys in baskwood and boneswords cannot stand up to 25 in iron... We fought well and beat the piss outta them but just could not kill them in iron...
Luckily, they only decked the ship and never burned it opened and only broke a leg, and though i lost 3 ships in a week none of them were zeroed (except for mates 1st tobo).. bad luck? IDK we eventually got the tobo finished the next day but i still have 3 naked buffalo's with no real tools, no stations and i start all over.. but it beats walking right?
Just because you have not gotten raided yet, it just means your time will come... Once you are down it is very hard to get back up. Grinding sucks, but for some reason i do not mind it in this game.. at least for now.. :)
