Helpful little elves

Maybe its the season, but I have noticed quite a number of times somebody will make it to my safe successfully, only to hang themselves. It feels like they are giving me a helping hand, showing me flaws in my design and declining to take pleasure in taking all my money. Thank you whoever. ;-)


Get out of my house!

Re: Helpful little elves

This happened to me a few days ago but I attributed it to more nefarious reasons.

Basically I think they were dumping tools and bounty. My house had a fairly low value at the time and they bought along many tools. So, after figuring out how to defeat my house, they suicide to significantly increasing its value. Had I not noticed I assume they would have come back in an hour to collect the greater value in the vault. They would effectively be able to start with a larger amount of money. The risk here is that somebody else will rob the house or that I will notice and change my design.

The sneaky bastards. Actually that makes a lot of sense.

Re: Helpful little elves

This seems to have happened a lot to me when I was gone for a week. My house was robbed and left in a state where it looked scary but the way through was fairly simple. $200 bounty accounts would come through with a full inventory of tools but not use any, and then suicide always one step above my vault (even though you come at it from the left). After a few of those an account would come through with no tools and take all of the previous bounties and tools.
