Effective June 7th, here are the changes made to the PvP cluster
Tribes are now limited to raiding 2 different tribes within 24 hours.
This limit does not apply to any raid where both sides planned or agree to an online raid with each other.
New players to the cluster will have 7 days of protection.
After this 7 days are up, or if the tribe leader disables it early, they are fair game.
The OGS Offline Raid Protection will have a 5 minute activation timer
If you show up to raid a tribe and they simply log off becuase they don't want to pvp, move on to another tribe. There is no penalty for tribes that choose to combat log.
We are focusing on encouraging tribes to engage with each other for mutual pvp. If you just randomly show up at a tribes base to raid it, there is a good chance they will just combat log if they aren't prepared, have the time, not in the mood etc.
All tribes will be permitted to have one soul terminal that MUST be located at their main base (with their OGS)
This will allow tribes to release dinos from Soul Pods at their base without cryo sickness penalities.
The range of the Soul Terminal effect is 25 foundations
The Soul terminals can not be picked up once placed, so be sure you know where you want to place it.
If a soul terminal is not placed at your base, but is instead used at a FOB to raid another tribe, it will result in your tribe being wiped. This is a QOL Perk for your base, not a raid tool.
Dinos released from Cryopods will have a 90% damage dealt nerf and a 25% increased incoming damage buff applied for 15 seconds.
Genesis Cryopod purchases have been disabled via a mod. Anyone attempting to purchase Cryopods will get Cystal instead.
Usage of existing Cryopods is banned. If you have any, remove the dinos, pod them up in a Soul pod and popcorn your cryopods. Using them gives the ability to drop 2 dinos in combat which is going around the intent. Anyone found with Cryopods will lose them (plus some additional penalties at our discretion)
