If you build multiple bases or structures across a map and you do not reset all of their auto destroy timers before they run down (especially metal as thatch and stone have not seemed to have caused this so far), YOU JUST MIGHT LOSE EVERYTHING YOU OWN if those auto destroy timers run down. We have recently had one tribe that has fallen victim to this. I am not sure if this is a glitch or the way Wildcard intended the auto destroy to work but if you decide to build multiple structures across the map, know you are doing so AT YOUR OWN RISK and not taking the time to reset all your structures may cause you to lose them all. Simply logging in and feeding dinos in one area WILL NOT reset other structures across the map. You have to physically visit them or fly over them to reset them. And once the auto destroy activates THERE IS NOTHING WE CAN DO TO GET YOUR STRUCTURES AND DINOS BACK. The Island seems to have been the only map that has been reported to have been affected by this so far, but we strongly warn you to make sure you keep up with all your timers across all four maps.
Please review the Auto Destroy timers in the Server Info and Rules section of the forum to brush up on what structures are set to destroy at what times.
Yea I remember reading something like this a while back in the steam forums. My tribe makes a point to reset all our timers at least every two weeks, so we have not had an issue. But after flying around and seeing tribes building lots of bases all over the place, this is good information that might help them think twice before littering up the map with structures they don't even use. Feel sorry for the tribe that got the auto destroy hammer but truthfully I am really not surprised taking into consideration the amount of glitches that this game has had and the lack on work wildcard has put into fixing current problems instead of adding new ones by continuing to add more content and DLC's in an attempt to make more money with the next shiny thing, instead of actually providing a better gaming experience to those of us who have already bought the game and have been playing it for some time.
