So, I’ve been playing this game for a while now, I know how pretty much how everything works. I enjoy the game, I think it’s got a ton of potential. The raiding in the game does have a few problems that I think need addressing.
For one thing, the game isn’t really something you can play on your own. If you are on your own, you really cannot defend your base against a group at all. I know a lot of people will come out with the same old responses such as “Oh get some friends.” or “Go on a PVE server.” but I don’t have a problem with PVP and although I do know a lot of people who play games, not everyone in the world plays Rust so it’s not something you can just make happen. I also know that you can go on a server with a lower population but that’s not a good suggestion because there’s nothing to guarantee that it’ll stay that way and those servers can also be pretty boring.
The issue with defending a base mainly comes from how there’s nothing to defend it with. Spike walls decay so you have literally no choice but to play to the game every single day to keep them from disappearing. Not saying they should take decay out, they should make it more durable. It also really doesn’t matter how well you build your base, it’ll get raided easily. I don’t want raiding to disappear either, I know there’s many of you who think that everyone who takes issue with the current raiding system simply want a base that’s impossible to raid but that’s not the case. Most people just want to be able to play the game for more than a day without being forced to start all over again.
C4 is also too easy to craft and something like that should be much much harder to research. One research kit to be able to make unlimited C4 is just too easy. Once again, I know there are already servers out there that make C4 uncraftable but a lot of those servers won’t last because there’s so many different servers.
I know someone will want to reply with “It’s in Alpha.” but this forum would be pretty pointless since that can be a response for everything. lol
