Anyone who follows my posts knows I’m the first to say that raiding needs to be more balanced out.
HOWEVER, it has come a LONG way. If my idea of well-balanced raiding is a perfect sunny day, then right now we’re looking at an overcast afternoon (and legacy was an F5 tornado).
I’m going to say that someone managed to happen upon C4 and/or explosives in the first drop or one of the first barrels they came across. Either that or the server admin preserved blueprints and they had it leftover from the last version.
It’s rare enough that anyone stands a chance of getting a well-built base before getting raided even on a server with decent population, but not so rare as to make raiding impossible.
