I just checked and while the newly placed houses are still there, for now at least, house placement has been indeed disabled in that area as it was before.

That is good to hear. Because I would hate for someone to sell the house to someone that doesn't know and then EA deletes the house and that person's stuff is gone.

If I remember correctly there is an old saying that went something like "Ignorance of the Law is no excuse."

Let's get real here, we know the INTENT is no housing in guardzones, if a glitch allows something temporarily it doesn't mean you get to keep it.!
In real life people have gone to jail by cashing checks erroniously sent to them for stupid amounts of money.

I see no reason why players should push the envelope on this.
Again IMHO



amen to that..

seriously, is nothing sacred??
i dont know why anyone would actually think this would be intended.
kinda like back in the day when you could place a house on a house, do you really THINK thats they way they intended it to work?

and to be honest, thats whats WRONG with this game.. people exploiting this and that for personal gain.. ..maybe i'm just a true veteran player with an unhealthy love for the game..

This was posted on stratics.....from draconi

Hello all!

Publish 55 shipped with a bug that dropped guard zones in towns across Britannia.

This also dropped restrictions on placing houses, and several reports have come in of people placing new houses within towns. We have since published an update to fix the town zones.

Our stance on whether these houses will be allowed to remain is an unequivocal "No." If you placed a house in a guard zone, you should remove it immediately before we remove it for you.

(This will not affect grandfathered houses that have already been there for years)

Thanks!
-Draconi

P.S. The guard zone changes are slated for Publish 56, and will include all the other changes (that didn't slip through accidentally) for the war.

Publish 55 accidentally lifted guardzones in certain areas in and around towns which allowed people to place houses there, where they were never allowed before. Now the guardzone issue has been identified and fixed, but some houses still remain and theyre gonna get whacked by GM's. Publish 55 was so big they ended up splitting some off it off into Publish 56 and this guardzone thing was accidentally left in Pub55.

Veldrane,
I looked thru all of draconi's other posts and could not find anything on the war or guard changes, the only thing i can hope is this is going to be part of the next "live event". I am excited as this is the first thing in along time i have read that indicates there will be another event soon... hopefully in pub 56

Yeah, that's what I was hoping too. Just didn't know if he had expanded on what the changes to guard zones in 56 were and I'd missed them someplace.

Housing in Guard Zones
Draconi

UPDATED 12:15PM: We will be leaving the houses up until Monday. However, all houses still standing on Monday will be deleted with ALL items inside them, so please remove your items and drop the house yourself!

I just saw a post on another website where someone was advertising an 18x18 in that area this morning. I sure hope no one gets scammed on this.

At the very least, EA/Mythic should disable the Trade House button on those houses ASAP if not already.

They are taking down the houses even though they said they would let people get their items out. I happened across one in Felucca filled with loot.

Good, I'm glad they coming down faster. The longer left, the better the chance of someone getting scammed.
