Condemned.... *wtf*

    I have reactivated the account and opened the door but the house is still condemned. What do I need to do?

    The opening and closing door trick has not worked in awhile... from I've been reading on stratics... I've never had it work for me. I think the advice everyone has been giving... is to page a GM. I hope you get your house worked out!

    I think it takes a server up. If you've got the time, wait it out. If not, transfer it to somebody, then back again.

    Or wait for somebody else to give a better idea of what's needed.

    Re: Condemed.... *wtf*

    Cheapy, it can take a while for the refresh to happen after reactivation (like the next day) but as long as you have at least a full day or two left in the IDOC cycle, it should be OK.

    From the FAQ:
    *edit* I was slow.

    Cheapy, if you reactivated the acct. today, the house will not refresh till server up tomorrow morning. Hopefully you have the time !

    If not page a GM although usually they can not do a thing till there is a server up and if the house did not refresh with the next morning server up, then they do refresh.

    We had the same issue with KSS Mithras Temple. The GM would not do diddly till server up the next morning, after we reactivated Py's acct., course by the next morning, it had refreshed itself. We were only on greatly worn though so we had a couple of days, but luckily it did refresh that next morning.

    Believe it or not I have an account now that might be able to help. I moved to Skara to get into the NEW community. The minute I do that every one moves... That house is empty and disposable. Give it a day or so and let me know.

    I'll even post my hunting route for the day on my bulliten board..
     
  12. Who knew? Hm, I actually sent you an icq to ask if you could hold the old keep while I got everything moved out and moved to East Brit, perhaps you missed it? I ended up claiming the teleporter reward and did it that way after Freja told me you could now release chests and things from a condemned house.

    Anyway, there's room in East Brit for a tower at least if you want to move there with us, it's the ideal area as long as new folk know where to find us when they land at the Wayfarers.

    I must have missed it. Sometimes my computers restart on their own and wipe the ICQs. I certainly would have bent over backwards to help you.

    *chuckles* Had I known you were moving again, I would have waited. Moving is a pain.

    Even if his house did fall, wouldn't he be the only one who would be able to place there for the 1st hour or so?

    I did not plan on moving from Skara Brae at all, but something came up quite rapidly after this patch, and I felt like reclaiming what was ! :)

    Ya know I just HAVE to do this ! Aeric would be pissed if I did not !

    Well the house was greatly worn yesterday so i figured i had a couple days since it was in the greatly worn statuse for 2 days i figured in would be IDOC for 2 days so i activated my account yesterday and today it was still in idoc satus and when i logged on a couple hours ago it had fell and luckily for me noone was there and I was able to retrieve all my stuff and place it in my keep. I did however lost my soulforge when the house fell. :(

    But that I can live with, I'm just glad all you idoc freaks missed this one! :)

    Edit: It does pisses me off that I just wasted $14.21 for nothing! Only activated the account to save the house from falling and now I feel like EA owes me something!

    Stop being so cheap and pay for your accounts and not just when they go Idoc.
     
  27. There's a timer now, you can't place for it's like 20-120 minutes [random]. Don't know if original owner could replace immediately.

    Like, 30 days of game time? Sounds like you are in luck!

    Go ahead, have your frivolities, but the fact is I paid for something I DID NOT get, and that to me is worthy of some sort of compensation. Sylark: Yes I get 30 days of game time but I didn't deserve for my house to fall just because EA has a bug in their system that does not refresh the house in time. I reactivated my account 24 hours before it fell, that is unacceptable! I could have saved my 15 bucks and let Cheapy pick up the crap off the ground rather than to reactivate just to loot the ground.
