I'm playing on this server since a week and I'm enjoying it very much. But still, there's something I don't really understand.
One of the rules of this server is that griefing and raiding is allowed. Good, no problem I thought at the first moment but then I realised this was vanilla.
What is the point of making a base and everything around it if it could be destroyed within one minute? You can't defend yourself while you're offline, because every block can be broken by everybody. Imagine if I make a big wall: Useless, one pickaxe and they are in my base, stealing all my stuff and I can restart the server.
Just having the luck of finding a base is good enough to become rich. The only solution I can see is making a full underground base, but that's against the idea of vanilla survival. All we want to do is make nice building, pvp with each other and have a good time. Raiding / griefing should not be allowed or only when the owners of the base are online.
What do you guys think about this situation?
The thing is about this server you can make over ground bases. Since there is a low population if you put your base out 50k blocks and hide it well you can have a safe overground base. Greifing is a big part fo the game.
well like hi_mister said, the low population on the server (and just many groups) you can easily build a base above ground couple k from spawn (you can use tp tower to get a head start)
and its a pure vanilla server wich means no single plugin what so ever, just basic minecraft online. and that is also one of the reasons i guess that griefing is allowed, we can't do much about it, we can't check who griefed, we can't protect it easily etc.
but i do hope you like playing on this server and that you get some friends on to play with!
