Can they get treasure? (I'm going to imagine so?)

Can the castles be reverted to no owners and be locked so people can't walk in there please? (Why was WoE enabled in the first place there?)

When castles have no owners monsters spawn on the inside and players are able to go in murder monsters and break the emperium at pretty much any time. PVP is enabled, the opening of these castles was announced a week ahead of time so that players can be prepared for the land grab. These castles will open normally when WoE 2 starts on friday.

This is the way forts have worked for ever, in fact its only been like a month since the Juno forts went in in the exact same manner and AnO took all of them, so I don't really understand how this could be a surprise.

Never realised it! Always assumed castles could only be taken during WoE times (go figure?).

Enjoy your free castle loot.

*ahem* I am afraid I must correct you.
When a castle does not have an owner, the map is not pvp. It is PVM with monsters/mvps and the emp attackable.

Do you know about timezones and maint time? pretty -_-ty considering this is a competitive aspect of the game. Giving away freebies should not feature anywhere on your list of "to-dos" regarding WoE. The Juno castles were not able to be taken immediately after maint and were only available an hour prior to the first WoE. This is the correct procedure.

In order to maintain the fairness of WoE and not affect the competitive scene, I would suggest an immediate lockdown of the castle portals to disable the taking of treasure, growing of econ for guardian farming and prevention of a headstart in Asprika creation.

This is nothing personal against those guilds, please don't take it as such.

Correction, AnO was only able to take the castles an hour before WoE started. VH snagged one too and we did check the castles at server up and they didn't have emps.

So either you're wrong or my memory is wrong and I'm pretty sure that I am correct, since it would be hard to imagine both checking for emps and not finding them, and then reacting to WoE "starting an hour early" and going to try and snag a fort. (this is what people thought the AnO breaks actually were)

I cant remember if it was an hour before WoE or at server up, I was talking with Tolrin about it during maint.

I thought it was an hour before but I think there was some other things like a short Maint on another day that could have opened them up making it somewhat confusing. I definitely do remember running around doing the usual "Hey servers are up lets go kill all the MVPs" thing during that time, so I really dont remember. I think it's more likely that when the servers came up we couldnt get in, they restarted one day so you could get in then AnO went to check and everyone started panicking.

There was no maint or flywings / teleport / memo would have been enabled prior to WoE

So stop pulling stuff out of thin air to try and explain this away when you don't actually know, ok? =/

Sorry for assuming we'd be able to get in and having four people online I guess.

LOL what makes you think Valk can defend a fort with 10 people on for WoE 2 ? all it will take is 1 rush of 2ez and all their forts will be gone... I seriously doubt you or anyone else will have trouble taking those forts away... I didnt see peopel coming to qq about ano taking all the forts that one time.

P.s. Its not like you shouldn't have expected this. I believe this happened on Valkyrie Server Multiple times after Event WoE's. Gravity/GMs have set this prescience a few times. Give the guilds that got them a little credit for checking the forts, just because no one in your guild anticipated the GM's thinking doesn't mean you should hate on them... If you really want fairness try putting your effort into things that really should be fixed (Like Changing the WoE 2.0 TIME or like UNboxing all items). :p_smile:
