just for clarification's sake

does this mean that Raids are now completely uncapped, regardless if it's a lair, settlement, or nation?

 

im guessing w/ the new plugin w/ raid ladders and explosive tnt, it'll be easier to get into said nations n stuff as well

 

an interesting change if you concur !

Yes, but larger raids have longer cooldowns.

gotcha, so i could -- in theory -- raid. . . let's say norland while having 28 of my guys, and they'd only get 7 day cd ? just following along w/ the math

That is correct math, but given that is more than double the normal cooldown, I don't know how you can call it "only" a 7-day cooldown.

Removing a cap at the cost of 1 day extra for 4 extra players is pretty unbalanced. That's one 28-player raid per week.

 

Think it's important to remember a gap of 5-12 is generally pretty generous compared to the past, and you have to bear in mind the chief weapon of raiders -- organisation, and speed. These weapons can allow most settlements to be stormed often before the rally cry can go up, and even when the bell is rang, it's often a case where there's a limited time window for people to actually get on. This organisation and speed - giving attackers the ability to catch settlements off-guard and block off points of escape and paths to rally bells - is what necessitates a balance in the form of a cap in the first place. Now with our most recent tech update, attackers can also use explosives and ladders to trivialise most defences. 

 

Like, with these new changes, I can drop a 28 man raid, who are organised for the raid and ready to block off, surround, etc. on a settlement who will probably get taken by surprise, whose walls I can ladder up, whose gates I can blow up, and who I can probably prevent reaching the rally bell at all because I have so many people to spare. Even if the defenders did reach the rally bell, it's really unlikely they could rally enough numbers to contest the raid before I initiate combat properly. 

 

I can do the above once per week on the same place in the current rules.

 

I just think it's pretty imbalanced, and there's 0 potential for a good fight involved at all. I don't really think any nation on LotC presently or even in the past could win against the formula I described above if used correctly. All the new changes are cool and all, but in their totality it's hard to see how it's balanced at all for the current server. Best solution is just a cap, raids aren't meant to be mini-warclaims.
