Hey all!

There have been many separate conversations about ways of making the PVP server a bit more fun. It is fantastic that we are all getting on so well, yet the harmony makes the server a bit on the quiet side. This combines with the fact that we have two large groups of regular players, which may put off new people to the server if they feel heavily out numbered. Again, this has lead us to tend to befriend, eliminating any PVP action. So this post is looking for ideas of how we might come to player lead arrangements, temporarily, to make things a bit more fun post 2nd Feb wipe.

Phen suggested that we all solo after the wipe. I liked the idea, but in conversation with Chozabu we realized that raiding would be difficult without the ability to boost. I had the idea of two man teams, and a rule that no-one builds higher than two floors - because one could easily build the loot room on the third floor with a tool cupboard and eliminate the ability for a two man team to get in.

Of course new players joining the server would not know about, nor likely follow, these rules. We could extend the agreement among ourselves to agree that if a large group joins the server, or if one of our longer term players gets cheeky and builds higher than two floors, we could re-unite to raid them.

These are just a couple of the ideas that have been put forward so far. I would very much like to hear back what everyone thinks of how things are on the server at the moment, whether you are interested in there being a little more action, and what ideas you have - and would be interested in - post 2nd Feb wipe. Thanks all.

yea i agree with the large groups, im going to change the max clan members to 3 after the wipe so new players arent put off completely from coming back and large groups will have to split. About the no more then 2 floors , theres' no real way to enforce that.

Thanks for the feedback Luigi, good to hear about planned changes.

Rather than trying to enforce anything, I was envisioning just an agreement among friends which could be mischievously enforced through uniting and raiding taller buildings. That on its own sounds like fun to me 🙂 But it is only an idea intended to stimulate ideas and feedback.

I'd be fairly happy for both the clan and friends plugin to be disabled for the next wipe.

On another note - recently played a russian server, shows friends names above their heads up to 200m (with distance)

im going to be removing clans plugin next wipe, and installing a different friends plugin which will enable you to private message friends and global chat to all friends.

The changes sound good to me.  Ill communicate with Tipsy/Viper but I'm basically a solo player regardless so little will change for me being that they're so inconsistent.  

I'd really love to know how the helicopter is effected by the better loot mod (I've heard that it nerfs the loot drops into the ground) and why it feels so damn overpowered at the moment.  Maybe they just changed it so its not able to be brought down without a large group, but if that is the case then its basically impossible without alliances which leads us back to square one.  

I've been scratching my head all week.  We have a good community, we just don't have the numbers quite yet.

All in good time I hope.

yea it does take time to grow a server, but its even harder with pvp because there are loads of servers that do the same mods ect.

The general feeling I have got from our lot is that we are going to solo after the wipe. My only personal concern is how to raid with no-one to boost with, but I'm sure we will address that issue as it arises. I'm presuming there is no way to mod ladders back in for raiding?

I was looking into writing a quick mod to do this, but it seems someone already has 🙂
