PArt of the issue with raiding, is a majority are only for complete wipes. This is probably the main reason i hear why no one wants to play, or quits, CE. They don’t want 2 months of game play completely wiped in 2 hours when they had RL things to do for a couple of days.
My solution to make it extremely expensive to foundation wipe is as follows:
- New T4 foundation structures (just add 5-20 Demon blood to current recipes). But not all building pieces. I am talking about foundations and wedge foundations only. 600,000 HP. This
makes it VERY expensive to completely wipe someone who has invested in these. Make them not place-able on top of ceilings. This will only make them usable for the actual foundations and walls. to limit height of these, use a vertical stability. same as now. so 5 high is as high as the wall could go. Can’t place fencing on them, and finally they can only be placed on flat surface ala crafting stations. Raiders will still be able to get thru doors and ceilings that are T3 or below, as is now and I think what raiding should be. So raiding a base costs the same, but foundation wiping can cost you a s#!+ load.
- Up the HP of all improved stations. I am talking 200,000 HP. They aren’t lockable, so exploiting them for safe storage is off the table. And would again, cost you some bombs to wipe them.
The goal is to make people raid for loot and (gulp!!!) fun, and if they want to wipe someone, to have to invest a major amount. This would not in my opinion affect solo players on PVP, as they could still raid. One would just would have to figure out a tactic and breach points. You know, strategy, and not just a mega ton of bombs and gods.
