What constitutes griefing of a base?

Recommended Posts

So my friends and I have been discussing our base and after a situation the previous evening some options were discussed but we'd like to clear up what would be considered griefing of our base?

First off, we build out in the open, we don't build in warehouses or around things of value such as water pumps or military bases and picked an out of the way location. Our base last night was broken into through the walls which is fine, but when the person who was relating it back to us told us multiple walls had been taken down, we asked ourselves if that would be considered griefing. See the screenshots attached.

Screenshot 1: Shows one entire wall and the upper portion of another wall, frame still intact on the southern section

Screenshot two shows a lower section of wall removed but frame still intact on the western wall.

Screenshot Three is another full wall removed from the eastern wall and our car with some tires destroyed.

This all happened in a 12 hour period and we're not sure the purpose behind it, as we're not sure anything was even taken and we don't know why someone would come along and just rip apart walls.

We discussed our options and several other questions came up. As we don't keep much in the base, if we were to just leave the gate open when we're not online if we were to return and find more walls destroyed, even with a very clear and accessible entrance would it be considered griefing? 

Would any vehicle we had inside, if it were outright destroyed even with free access to come and go, would that be considered griefing (As you can see in picture 3, tires on the car were very obviously destroyed)?

It seems the ONLY reason someone came in was to destroy stuff and make some things unusable for us and we currently have absolutely no hostilities or made contact with anyone hostile to warrant this.

So what kind of options do we have?

Griefing is when something you have stored or built is destroyed out of a OOC idea. If they destroy your things after a IC confrotantion that doesn't go well, that does not constitute griefing. But if something you have is destroyed based out of OOC reasoning, that can constitute griefing.

Emptying containers and tents contents out on the floor to let it despawn regardless of whether they have an IC reason or not would be considered griefing. In the pictures shown it looks like people have destroyed a few walls to get in, it doesn't seem like they have gone over the top just to break the walls out of spite. The griefing of your base would be considered if they had gone over the top and destroyed much more of it, in my opinion the amount shown in the pictures would not indicate signs of grieving but just that they did this to get in.
