Can I call dibs on a public monument or event?
Public monuments (i.e. Oil Rigs or Military Tunnels) and server events , like the Attack Helicopter or Bradley APC spawning, are server-wide events in public spaces and typically aren't meant to be solo'd. If others want to participate there's nothing you can do about it – they want to have fun, the same as you. Compromise is a big part of playing on a community server!
