You should change it, and do that soon!By Specialist_AKA_Specs
By now many of you have probably heard or even seen the base setups with diagonal land tiles forcing the limits of the base layout to ridiculous proportions. I want to warn my readers against this and give you ample time to swap the layout back to something else that is legit.
Yes. I understand that you can do these in the base planner and it will let you set it as a legit base. But, the Team has told the moderators that this is not an intended feature of the game, or Out Post 9. It will be fixed in a future update, maybe Wednesday, January 4, 2017, and you will not want to take that chance.
Why do you ask? The game has an auto-ban feature that looks for certain things when it does checks. This base layout could trigger the automatic ban and place a tag on your base that is easily avoidable. So, take this as a warning from someone that has talked to the Game Team and the Fair Play team. If you have done these to your base, swap it as soon as you can.
It is not a guarantee that you would get banned if you still have it when the fix goes in. But, it is possible the auto ban could decide to tag your base and have you go through the process of going through a Fair Play review to get your base back. This review could take a few days and result in you missing time to do your forsaken mission or even the first bit of the raid.
I hope you are all in good health when you read this, and you take this warning to heart if you are one of the few that have set their bases up in a way similar to the below base.
