This is just some thoughts on the current state of raiding on cosmic. To start off lets compare the build time of a cannon. Due to cosmic banning printer cannons take an awfully long amount of time to build, and due to the piston limit, semi autoing has been limited. Its not impossible but holding many shots requires a cancerous sandcomp. The defences on cosmic allow check boxes and regen defences as we all know. I would say its fair to allow check boxes only if there were no regens as this would allow for people to go through a buffer much faster, but then people will be able to check much easier, or just afk the check box. Another alternative would be to scrap check boxes and keep the current method of raiding. Not to mention most players have ./near which helps negate raiding. Also whats with the bullshit that people can make defences outside their base during a raid. If you are going to do it like that you may as well let people have 30 chunks buffers. The bases are also are also obnoxiously big. If someone has a 30x30 base, and a full buffer, It can just be considered a 50 chunk buffer as the core will most likely be on the very end. The only reason cosmic has not died regarding raiding is due to midairs, however most people don't have access to these special types of cannons or they don't know how to use them. It seems as if cosmic is full of base bitches who make a base and never get raided due to the inbalance between cannons and bases. I believe the majority of the community just resort to pvping and getting better gear. I think it will be in cosmic's benefit to keep players engaged, as of now most the players are either afk alts or people pvping.
