(including silos) this would put everyone on a level playing field to cap it on Sunday once the workbenches are up and create PVP opportunities Sunday instead of on a Wednesday morning when most NA EST/PST folks should be at work (or school/class).

    As I interpret their post, castles will be capped on Sunday - not Wednesday, and therefore if anything is capped on Wednesday, it wouldn't be as intended.

    In a nut shell: I don't trust Trion to do anything completely right or well-explained. They left this open to interpretation and had it relayed by a dude named "Ocho" - I don't even know who Eight is.
    Morpheus was a unique beast with its packs as it was planned. Do not expect the same treatment.

    Secondly, this info on how this is done has been widely available for quite some time.

    We're also assuming that people frequent the forum posts. Let's be honest, activity on here has seriously dwindled ever since they forced all of us to type with kiddie gloves on. It's a struggle to find new/active reads on here, so I wouldn't fault anyone for completely ditching the forums. Also, no clarity (if we can call it that) was given on the details of the situation until 3 days ago when Ocho made his post.

    If these packs crafted on Sunday, intended for something that doesn't even exist yet, are going to be usable on Wednesday - then Trion should have done their due diligence and had GM's broadcast something once the Monoliths came up on Sunday.

    Also, it would be gee golly swell if Khrolan, Amary or Celestrata would respond to this post to clear up just how exactly this is going to play out.

    There's a potential for significant PVP, particularly on the servers that are starved for it, and it would be a damn shame if someone used a sick day hoping for a rowdy good time only to find that there's not squat to do.

    (Yes, part of this is me selfishly hoping that nothing happens Wednesday because I can't call in sick this week, so I want it to be Sunday when I can actually be around for it.)

    The packs crafted, that I saw, were done by Disciprine (Not Today), some other East guild simultaneously, and then when the West bench became available some 30 minutes - an hour later, Dagnab (likely a Demonbane alt) crafted it.

    I'm not particularly interested in seeing Demonbane pick up two uncontested castles without an actual siege.

    I'm hoping there's a 5-minute channel or something on this ♥♥♥♥... and that other people are going to log out at these zones to mess with the channels. To hell with DGS on reset, this sounds like it *could* be more fun.

    Personally, I suggested that we also consider crafting the pack on Sunday - that didn't quite happen. Only a handful of people were over 1K Prestige at the time and basically... things didn't happen fast enough to guarantee a pack was crafting prior to the despawn at 1 AM EST.

    That being said...

    It's a pack. Packs can, and will, be dropped.

    I just wanted to be around (on Sunday) to assist in making sure these packs dropped.

    They did say areas could get claimed on Wednesday though hence the housing rush they are expecting. We will see.... This will be a "we dont know anything and we will see how it works out". Inb4 "Player Nation required" red message pops up lol .

    Personally I was hoping only player nations could claim, but it will be interesting to see who gets the new castles all the same. Just hope who ever has the Exoloch one actually uses it. Like to be able to work there.

    Where did they say this though? On a Livestream? Because I tend to not watch those - and the last one I did see that mentioned it was basically Khrolan acknowledging he hadn't the slightest clue as to the rules involved "but, hey (moar) CASTLES!" [rejoice underpopulated servers]

    Friday's livestream he said that having a player nation would not be a requirement for claiming the two new areas.

    So someone else loaded the DS benchs and did the expensive part and you guys couldn't find someone with 1000 prestige or anyone with enough gold to buy it in hammers within the 2 hours that the benches were available ?

    Looks like you guys are ready for patch day
