list 2-cons and pros of new ladders
Hello, like you I am a fellow rust player. We all know that ladders have been made with the best of intentions, although they have come with the worst outcome of any update ever on rust. This has fixed rock bases, but it hasn’t just fixed them, it has destroyed all bases. Now, no matter where you live, rock, iceberg, or even the ground in a legit base, your base is going to be destroyed with three times less c4. You may have a legit base, and anybody can walk up to it, build up to the roof, and just blow their way down through your bases roof. Also, you might have a thick base that isn’t tall, although ladders also destroy this base. If you get to the roof of the building, you can get to the middle of the base, and use around 1/3 of the c4 to find the loot room, because you know that they didn’t put it on the most outer layer, and from the roof you get a nice view of that furnace light shining through. Next, we have iceberg bases, if you spend over an hour getting to an iceberg to build on, you deserve for your raiders to spend an hour and a half to get onto the iceberg. I say an hour and a half because they have to tower up and destroy the tool cupboard with rockets from a distance. Next, we have the rock bases, rock bases were easy to get onto, but at the same time, it took only twenty minutes to get onto the rock. So, in my opinion, if you are going to raid a rock base, save up some rockets, because if there is a rock base up for long enough, it usually has enough c4 or sulfur or another item to pay its weight in gold. Finally, there is the build up base, this base I %100 agree should be fixed, and ladders are a great way to do this!
build ups - fixed
rock bases too easy to break in to.
iceberg bases too easy to break in to.
normal bases too easy to break in to
wide bases too easy to break in to.
The way that we can fix this is through foundations and roofs. You can make it so that foundations and roofs are the only thing you can place ladders on. This would make it so that you can raid build up bases, which keep in mind can still be made on rocks and icebergs! Also, this would make it so that you can raid any base, because rock and iceberg bases can still be raided, they just take a little more work. Also, since you can’t place them on the outside of a base, normal bases wouldn’t be too affected, but you could blow up a roof and build up from inside the first floor. Although, you could easily counter this by making your loot room on the highest floor, because the raiders would need to break the most floors that way.
build ups - fixed
rock bases are normal to break in to
icebergs are normal to break in to
tower bases will still be hard to break in to
wide bases will be easily destroyed if you don’t have doors in every area on your loot floor. (because if your base isn’t tall then they can get to your highest level easily)
rocks area bit too hard to destroy since it takes so little time to get on to them. (unlike glaciers because you have to spend an hour or so to get on to the glacier to build on it)
Unfortunately, I can’t think of a way to fix wide bases and rock bases, other than making ladders build on rocks… although, wide bases would still be broken, but they are even more broken in the current update. ALSO, the reason I don’t think icebergs need to be lowered in difficulty to raid, as I have said before, is because it takes the builder so long to get on to the iceberg. So, if the builder spent so much time to get on to this iceberg, his raiders should have to spend just as much time. And, with this current update, no base is at all safe, which I understand in Rust they shouldn’t be, but on my favorite server, my glacier base was raided within a couple hours of me building it. Then, I build a hidden base in the mountains that was fairly tall, and that base was raided by building ladders to the top and destroying your way down. Next, I build a wide base in a lake, and that base was built in to the roof and destroyed from the inside out, which took much less c4. Although, I admit that I did some raiding myself, which is how I know that these ladders are so unfair. It may help you raid, but it also makes it so that by the time you get back to your base, it’s gone.
PS: Garry, if you are actually reading this, you might not like this exact idea, but still you could make an update like this.
