In B3 I was running around mining, after hitting a point and getting the "5 attempts left" message 2 other people ran over and started mining same spot as me, but I noticed it had no effect on my own mining and I still got all 5 other attempts and they were still going at it when I left.

Anyways haven't seen this mentioned but just wanted to say how glad I am there shouldn't be any "you stole my node" arguments, unless this was some kind of bug (which I certainly hope not)

Yeah there was a thread going about this very subject before the surplus fiasco buried it a few pages back...

When I first saw 2 or 3 people all mining at one point I thought they were group mining or somethin', I only experienced it once where another person & I both chopped @ the same tree...no issues

Brilliant! Now gathering can be a somewhat social event. Even start a mining party and run from node to node together.

Thanks for pointing this out.

Which day did this happen to you. I was harvesting a day or 2 before beta close and someone came over to me while I was harvesting. It seemed like I did not get all my swipes that it said i could. Not 100% sure though.

Anyone else have experience with either happening.

Check the linked thread. Mining points start off with way more points then any one person can mine, but they do have a limit before they mine out. Nearly exhausted points are going to fade shortly, but you still run over because you don't know if anyone's on it.

I've group mined a bit during Beta, 4 of us just jamming spot to spot. Sometimes we all got 6 swings in, sometimes we got shorted. The mining points get X hits before fade, then just move on. Since the find mechanic only finds one point at a time, and since there's normally going to me more then enough, it's party time. :)

ah I see so like mining node has 20 ticks on it but each player can only take say, 6. Still a good system imo
