    Cant think of a single reason why a brand new player needs to be sieged when they don’t understand it.

    For anyone that sieged a deckhand, shame on you.

    All deckhands are immune to siege, when they rank up to Cadet this is then removed from them.

    Good job Godsy! Now we just wait and hope no one abuses this by having a deckhand remain one forever to have an unsiegable claim…….

    @godsdead, I agree with deckhands not being able to be sieged, but the question is: should THEY be able to siege then? You could also set it so the first time they participate in siege as attacker they loose this protection. This is just hypothetical idea to prevent abuse. if deckhand and cadet had dispute, deckhand would clearly be able to beat the cadet while safely hiding in his dirt house… Even though they might be 30 mins of game time apart.

    Ani, that was the first thought that popped into my mind when I read this thread too.  After thinking about it, I came to the conclusion that since the requirements for Cadet are so minimal, someone would have to try absurdly hard to remain a deckhand for any significant period of time, effectively not playing the game at all.  The only real way to abuse the new mechanic is by abusing alts, which staff already watches and bans players for.

    I think this is an excellent gameplay update!

    One of the biggest reasons why deckhands get raided/sieged often is because it’s nearly impossible to raid people like Rep or Ani, but not because they’re good players or anything like that, but rather because it’s far too easy to protect your chests and your base. All you need is a few stonebricks and you’re good to go…it kinda contradicts the name of the server. How can you be a pirate/thief/ if everyone can easily put a stonebrick ontop of their chest and be completely safe? I would love to raid good players such as Rep, but can’t unless I get VERY lucky by getting into her base and THEN somehow miraculously find her chests unlocked. So what do I have to do to raid people? Well, I need to go after newbies or people who forgot/don’t want to lock their chests. Not to mention nether portal being removed also further removed another way to actually raid someone. (even though nether portal raiders can be easily countered by ANYONE.) It’s just too hard to raid people on the server unless you get lucky now. I mean, what’s the point of cannons exactly anyways? You typically aren’t going to be destroying claimed base walls unless those walls are cobble and you’re in a siege…which is just a waste of ammo because it’s easy to just break cobble with a pickaxe. Not to mention, VERY FEW wealthy/good players on the server use any sort of soft blocks thhat can make their base vulnerable.

    Disagree, if it was easy to steal other players items, then nobody would play on the server as it would be a mayhem server, there would be no good builds, there would be no citys, no towns. Siege recently got a few updates, read that forum post.

    I’ve stated a few times before, but when we get onto a bigger better server hosting, Im adding a new world that will have no TP, No map and No GP 🙂 This is a world you can live in!

    Witcher Geralt…you was cadet and was aggravating me even b4 I got there. You deserved it 😛

    Anyway… Thanks for the new addition. I no longer have to repeat my lectures on how to protect your base and what not ?

    I’m not saying make it easy at all. I’m saying make it actually possible without pure luck. At the moment it’s a pirate server without being able to really steal much at all. Somebody can sit at my base’s front door as much as they want, and they’ll never be able to take my good stuff. Why? Because of a single stonebrick sitting on a chest. : / It’s just too easy to be safe. And if it’s true that you can bring items/money between both worlds…then won’t that just mean people will keep their vaults in the safe one, where there’s no chance of losing their stuff really and just sell everything there? I might be wrong about that, but that’s the impression I’ve gotten so far. Also, VERY FEW people put soft blocks on their chests to lock them, so their chests are generally still pretty safe from raiders.

     

    Wheres your solution? all I hear is someone whining without actually helping or giving a solution.

    @elexandre1994 Because the quote is getting too big to quote!

    We already have diamonds able to shoot through/penetrate blocks to kill people the other side, again like I have said I cant have it possible to destroy any block that’s protected, If you want to live in a world where you can destroy any block, then that world is coming soon.

    To me this is a bad idea. What if one deckhand is extremely powerful and has alot of enemies. He would be protected from any shape or form of attack inside his claim!

    This post that I posted on this post about something is probably useles information.............
