Was just slaughtered by the biggest goblin raid I've ever seen


#1

Maybe this was a bug, or maybe I was unlucky and unprepared. On day 8, I thought I was doing awesome, my little guys were harvesting corn for the first time, I had an abundance of other food, I had enough beds for all 9 of my people, and 5 buildings, 3 for crafters, and 2 that served as hotel type things for all of my workers.

Towards the end of the day, a huge goblin raiding party the likes of which I have never seen descends on my camp, instantly killing my 2 footmen, and then quickly slaughtering the rest of my village. There were approximately 10 goblins.

Perhaps it was because I had amassed so much wealth? Maybe it was because the goblin population remained unchecked, or got clogged up somehow, eventually attacking all at once.

However, even if all 9 of my people had been footmen, I’m not sure even they all could have held off the attack, because the goblins came as a group, while my soldiers would have been spread across my town. This seems like it was too difficult a scenario early on.

I have a save from the end of day 6, and I may try playing it again to see if it happens once more.

Anyone know what may have caused this? Does it always happen on day 8, or did I become too rich too quickly? What is the best way to combat such a threat?

Thanks! :smile:

As for why it happens, it’s currently an issue the dev team is working on. The mod above might help; other suggestions (as well as more information) may be found in this thread by Stephanie.

hey there @corwin… as has been mentioned, this is being looked into (balance, etc)… however, if you make it to day #8 again, let’s see some more screenshots! :smile: :+1:

By the way, what are your computer specs?

Like @BloodW0lf said, download @Wombat85’s fix. Also try building your village in an enclosed area so you can easily construct walls around it.


#8

What specs in particular are you curious about?


#9

Not much, just things like processor, graphics, and RAM.


#10

running win 8.1
8gb ram
intel i5 chip
it’s about 2 years old, and at the time, it was a pretty good laptop.


#11

Okay, so it’s a laptop. There seems to be some correlation between computer quality and goblin raids.


#12

I use a two year old Lenovo Enhanced Experience 3 windows 7 intel core i7 8GB Ram CPU 2.10GHz 64 bit operating system. can some one tell me if that is good or bad for gaming etc?


#13

That seems pretty good to me. Of course, I probably purchased my laptop around that time with an i3 and 2GB RAM, so I have little to compare it to. (I am still able to run the Tech Demo)
