Mines being blocked during shield mode for pvp event


#1

So we have a person who came and is sitting on our mine right now, we can’t attack him to remove him but also we can’t use the mine because he is on it

@pgdave @pgecho


#2

You have to lower the shields nearest the mine to be able to kill the squatter. You can reenable them right after.


#3

They removed the option to turn off the shield for some reason. That was the way to do it before for sure.


#4

Yeah no way of killing the guy off…


#5

Could you tell me the coordinates of this mine?


#6

@pgdave @pgecho my mine is also blocked sharing the coordinates


#7

168
-50

We the guy just finally left after more then 12hrs sitting on it


#8

Also another team at
150
-85
Is having the same problems


#9

Indeed they did. Very peculiar decision.

How are we supposed to deal with griefers/squatters during major events with this option to drop shields to kill them removed?

Can you all please again activate the disable shield/enable shield button. It’s getting difficult enemies are blocking mine and island. Can’t do gold runs and can’t transfer gold as enemy is staying there. Enabling/Disabling shield was a great feature you should have kept it. @pgEcho


#11

Could you guys try to attack the players on the mines now? Deployed a change that should fix some issues for the short term while we work on re-enabling the disable shield button.


#12

I just attacked someone at our mine. It says I got glory but the person is still at our mine and hadn’t lost any troops. @pgEcho
Correction I attacked a second time and this time it destroyed the troops and the intruder is gone now.


#13

Can we get clarification on this?
What are the rules for mine and poacher PvP during major events?
@pgEcho


#14

Players should always be able to attack enemies on poachers and mines even when event shields are up.

Personally I would like to disable the event shields entirely, but for now they should only protect castles. I find myself bored when I can’t attack in Atlas for days when event shields are up.


Atlas Event shielding?
#15

A pvp event doesn’t dictate the need to disable any attacks in Atlas. Shields are completely unnecessary.


#16

My exact feelings :stuck_out_tongue: Which is why I asked the question in this thread, though not many people weighed in.

perhaps i’ll turn it into a poll.


#17

FYI… We have re-enabled the ability to turn off shields during pvp events.


#18

Excellent. Good decision.


#19

I am still unable to take down shields @pgEcho


#20

Looks like something hadn’t finished uploading. Could you try again?
