We’re observing quite a high amount of Hideout destruction in the second placement phase. This is fine if a Hideout is actually being placed offensively. However, this is causing quite a lot of grief amongst the smaller guilds who are just trying to get a Hideout placed somewhere in the open world. For this reason, we’re planning to make an adjustment to Hideout visibility: Hideout construction sites will only appear on the region map if you’re in the same region as the construction site. This will make it far less convenient to scout remote Hideouts and go there without a strategic need. Our goal is that different size guilds can co-exist in the Outlands and that destroying another guild’s Hideout has no benefit and no incentive for the attacking guild, unless they’re in direct conflict with the guild owning the Hideout.
In addition, we’re reviewing the durability of Hideouts of all levels to check if they need to be adjusted based on our data. If we make an adjustment, its likely to increase the durability of construction sites (which are possibly too weak) and slightly lower the durability of fully upgraded Hideouts (which are very strong right now).
