    What is your suggestion?:Limiting the distance away from a base you can have a cannon.
    How would the suggestion make the server better?:This would stop factions like 14kt who have millions of stacks of TNT using cannons that can shoot 4,000 blocks. This means no one can easily counter their cannon box and they can be virtually unstoppable. Adding a rule / plugin to make cannons shoot 50 chunks max would mean that it actually takes skill to raid someone not their cannon not being basicly immortal.

    +1 Absolutely ridiculous, Cannoning from that fat away shouldn't be allowed plus all e time they have to escape if we come online just ridiculous. +1 from me :)

    +1. 14kt raided us from an absolutely nuts distance. With cannons shooting at the rate that they do, if they shoot the first time and you notice it immediately, odds are by the time you get to the cannon, theyre in your base. Entirely unfair, especially without restrictions on cannon fire rates.

    -1 if you have a corner claim you could claim 50 chunks out and be un-raidable.

    yeah well it doesn't have to be 50 chunks i was just saying that for example. it could be 100. and the max claim distance is 32.

    no they limited the faction claim distance to 32 end of. you can't claim past that unless you use an alt faction and then its an illegal buffer. therefore you would get dqed.

    A lot of bigger, more competitive servers allow you to shoot however far you want. If anything its already nerfed on here because people are allowed to claim a 2nd buffer and gen walls in, making cannoning from 4k blocks out pointless. If minelink wants to bring more comp to the server the owner and devs need to give a * and stop being retarded. This is just a bad suggestion that won't help bring any competition to the server -1

    If you check walls often then chances are you won't get raided and you will stop them. If you cant see raid claims or cannon boxes then fly borders or look for breaks in the walls and chances are you are being raided. Shooting from 200 chunks or 400 chunks can easily be stopped if you're online and regularly checking walls. Adding power is just adding more dispensers and if you have a counter you can easily shoot just as far as we do by adding more dispensers. Shooting 50 chunks is a skill? As long as you know to cannon that’s a skill itself, no matter how far you’re shooting. If you were smart you would be able to counter anything. No base is unraidable. You constantly have 15 kids on, so I don’t know why you’re complaining about us shooting 4000 blocks out. It gives us a chance to print the cannon while you constantly have kids on and if you were smart, you would be checking walls and patch as soon as you found out you’re being raided instead of flying to the cannon box. Utilize your faction members instead of illegally gaining wealth and getting disqualified you, idiots.

    +1 the other night 14kt was firing at my base literally from there’s which is 6k blocks away give it take a little. And they have been outside my base 1-2k blocks away for over an hr just shooting lines through is cause it’s funny, to them.

    that picture probably took them 30mins max to do 6 full lines through 200 walls.
    The cannon speed needs to be nerfed as well 4s is a reasonable speed, currently they are shooting at 1.7s.
