As I see it, the safe zone is there to provide complete base protection - you earn it with the use with having to buy zone chips. You can no longer bury or hide bases underground due to Voxel resets, even before that they were often visible before the terrain voxel’s appear so effectively your left completely reliant on it planet side.
I’m not discrediting the person who came up with the idea, very clever If this exploit is true? in terms of nudging another sz to encompass a protruding block then it should be clearly mentioned regularly in chat! and banned. Whats the point of a SZ otherwise. Call it a defense shield and tie it to the energy grid. I knew of the connector/timer block trick, but not this one.
It seems complete lunacy to allow this to happen, for someone to take control using a completely passive armored block. As I mentioned earlier I’m grateful for the person/faction who did this didn’t trash the base beyond defense guns.
I also see Naginacz has had his base equally raided with the same method - so there hitting everyone quickly before it gets stopped. Which is fine but completely off putting from gaming on Rebels server.
Now the problem I have is I don’t have time to play due to other commitments, my faction members are stuck quarantined in another country, I still have two ships stuck underground because I cannot get them moved up to the surface by an admin, and now our zone chips have been taken! so I’ve now shoved nearly everything into the hangar rather than left ticking over.
You may as well just use the hangar every night rather than leave your station or base exposed! and in which case its completely invulnerable and frankly takes something from the game.
