our server died because of a 2 month DDOS, and SS13 is currently more lively than ever. for an entire month, our server had 90+ players on per round (which was actually way too much, 40-60 players is perfect)
RoK is unlikely to die out, it combines autism (LEGOS) with gathering and progression. People love that kind of shit, and the devs have already made a fortune out of their shitty unity asset-ridden game. Maybe not a fortune, but they have definitely made a profit.
the thing that’s most likely to kill RoK is the cheating. if the game was able to support around 100 players (without turning into a shitfest of lag) and didn’t have the problems with hacking it does, it would be a great game. All the devs are doing to combat hacking is implementing layer and layer of “cheat detection” that gets bypassed in 8 hours. VAC and EasyAntiCheat aren’t going to stop shit.
5. This is the biggest joke - 3000 cobblestone blocks were spent on what base exactly? Certainly nothing that was ours. In fact, we saw Penzel or Gnogre (the only other two players on the server after the trebbing besides us) looting the stuff from that base that the siegers were throwing on the ground. If you look more closely at which base you found made of 3000 cobble, it’s probably theirs.
6. The only base we had was behind the king’s keep which was made of WOOD, and it was built in a day out of maybe 1000 blocks or so, which isn’t hard to farm with 3 people working
your base was a few thousand blocks tall, going from the ocean all the way to the king’s castle, made of wood and cobblestone. one layer up would be wood, then the next was cobblestone. you’re not gonna be able to lie your way out of this one, sorry buddy!
8. Adam is a cancer taking every base on the server and leveling them before anyone could build up with hundreds of treb shots (likely created BEFORE the Alpha 11 patch when they were easier, thus taking advantage of broken mechanics) (which is technically fair, but pretty fucking douchy), so whoever did it is a hero and made the server better for anyone who remains
yeah i’m sure adam is part of the RoK dev team and knew they were going to change the amount of rocks required to build a trebuchet stone, what an asshole lmfao
ugh not to make this into some kind of gay roleplay bullshit but you could possibly have it staged on the forums or something with a designated raid time
I kinda like this idea not to have full role play but maybe an announcement that so and so is going to attack so and so not to give any specific time but maybe a time period so the person can defend themselves and possibly keep people active on the forums and servers.
There’s no point in that being a rule, you’re wasting trebuchet stones if you decide to level an entire base with one. People just break in, destroy the crest, plant their own, and take all the blocks. I don’t know anyone who uses a trebuchet to destroy every single block.
After this last patch, I’m stuck on loading at “Downloading Characters”. Anyone else?
Edit: Google says it might be serverside:
"If you are having problems connecting to your server. Delete your Configuration/Permissions.cfg file in your dedicated server files. The server will regenerate the config file with defaults. You can then edit the file to make yourself admin again. "
