    • The top ranked PvP'ers at the end of the season will also receive Amazon gift cards and Vaelox store coupons

      Is there any way you could lift all East/West patches. I have been working with corner cannons for quite some times on my own private server. I noticed when shooting diagnol on here your sand/tnt split and go separate ways. This isnt the case in all directions, and differs depending on alignment.

      On my paperclip test server without an east/west restriction, the sand/tnt never ever EVER split.

      I dont know if your only ajusting the movement of sand and not TNT. . but whatever it is your changing, make sure its on all sand, and tnt. If that is the case, please remove. Corner cannons are only impossible due the inconsistencies from east/west patches. They are not impossible, they just need aimed and built in the appropriate spot. .

      I tested all 4 diagonal ways on my test, and only found 1 direction to be different. On here, lol . . just watch the sand/tnt split when you give her power.

      *Next question. . . will autos be allowed? Can we nuke walls from y255 to Bedrock?

      Auto patches won't be lifted.

      Will the incursion key be more pricy?

      "In Season 2 it will be easier than ever to build walls that even Donald Trump himself would be proud of" ;)

      I just don't like the Genning Buckets feature, we're making it too easy. It's not that hard to generate a cobblestone wall in the old fashioned way. And I think knowledge is power, I see this type of things as technologies. Factions that know more technologies also have advantage. Unless Genning Buckets are reasonably expensive or hard to get, I think they should be removed.

      Other than that, Season 2 is looking good!

      I like putting effort on my base and then seeing results. Not a feature that will make me quit but from what I know about it so far, I don't like it. But then again "you can't please both Greeks and Trojans." ;)

      @Bestle can you please tell us when season two will end. This on and on until everyone goes inactive is shit lol. . .

      I vote two months per season. Max three. . I just feel you will attract bigger factions with quicker resets.

      Depending how long the map is determines my base size. . . If its a short map I wont need a huge base. . But if I gotta stop cannoners for yhr next 5 months. . . Lol well. . You get it
