12000 exp. per player not per team. It means 660 exp. per killed attacker(1111 exp. per attacker when all peasants survive). Anyway - I will buff peasants resist and decrease max wave size.

BTW - have you participated in yesteday event? I can't find your nick in logs.

devs did a great job in this server, and personally u did great job with all this events, BUT u should agree that cooperation 5 fully equiped 26+ lvl players to 12k exp. reward is kinda pointless, i can go deathclaw boneyard quest for 15k exp in 8 minute with naked 15 lvl char, or do 70+k exp in hour for solokilling floaters, u should think about much better reward for group quest, or nbdy will do it like nbdy do metro and farm def now

It is ok quest if those changes will be made (resistances of farmers mostly) . We did it with scouts for similar result (with help of 1 pr0). If by fully eqipped you mean crafted tesla, minigun and psycho wchich stayed for another 50 minutes for me to do other things - yest it requires full equipmen...

Its all about proper gearing. From those raiders plasma pistols and grenades hurt most. Tesla (i crafted with fire, plasma and explode bonus) takes plasma away and psycho covers low normal resistance. My weird psycho char chas FOV bonus from glow so i can see almost all guarding lower gate. Minigun crafted with some crit chances and they fall like grass :)

takes like 12 minutes, its an alright change of pace from farming or doing dungeons, I would say it is fine as is but can also be buffed in terms of exp gain for sure

Too hard, reward too low. Cant solo it in 2 windows without losing all the peasants. Dunno why all methods of leveling up have to be nerfed to leave grinding floater and centaur as only option.
Before it was kinda fun way to level, because taking on 50+ raiders solo was challenging.

I agree here. No organized or semi-organized team decides to team up and... go do farm defense/metro. Neither will people shout in the town to random people that "hey let's team up and go do those quests together" because of all kinds of defection. So in the end no-one does these quests.

We got the raiders and deathclaw quests as instanced places that single char can do. They aren't that interesting, but even I do them occasionally for some good xp for low level chars. I haven't seen the game break because of that.
