I had been playing with a small group of guys on a slowly dying server. One now neglected by even its admin but we still hang around since we were so successful in killing off bandits and building what we have in the beginning when the server was netting 50+ people a day. As buildings deteriorate around me from long lost friends, I have one faithful companion still by my side. Today, we decided to pay the new French guys on the beach a visit. For about a week now, they have toiled and plundered to build a six story (and still growing) structure. The moment came when only one of them was left online to guard. Door after door, we busted our way in until we didn’t have any C4 left. Every chamber unveiled hastily grabbed loot with gaps between items as the owner must have been retreating with every C4 blast and grabbing whatever he determined was valuable.
He kept typing in chat that “4 of my buddies are coming! Better stop!” We laughed and began to try and devise a new plan since we ran out of C4. My friend had a brilliant idea and we went outside and built a tower to the top of his base. There, only one door blocked us. My friend said he was going to run back and make more C4 but before he could, the idiot owner popped upon the door for me! He didn’t even get off a single shot before I put him down. With the door now open, we busted in, broke down another door and got a little more loot.
To make a long story short, we raided each bedroom, destroyed the sleeping bags, took all their stuff, and then proceeded to “foreclose” on the property. (We built two layers of walls around it and walled in every entrance.)
So why was this raid unsuccessful? All told, we returned with a research kit, bolt action rifle, 9mm pistol, tons of paper, some resources (1,000+ wood, 500+ ore), and 100 chicken. This was after spending 8 C4, 3 grenades, 50 rounds of 5.56, 300 wood planks, and 1,600 wood.
At least we forced them to move!
