    4 buttons, 2 iron doors, and 1 smooth stone block has given me 100% protection against PvP-ers at night

    Im aware you may not want to do that, but it's not impossible to ensure you're kept in a peaceful area during the night. During the night which to be honest has been used (and even in Minecraft) in numerous games to be extremely hostile whether it's mobs, bandits, etc. roaming around though it's not something you may have wanted, you were already playing that type of defense with the AI. Is it that hard to keep out a human? I've ensured I'll never be attacked in my claim without completely destroying my building.

    Doors and blocks don't protect you against chorus fruit and the like. Well, it sure didn't help me earlier, anyway.

    "Using items such as Chorus Fruit or Ender Pearls to glitch through blocks in order to access areas, such as personal claims, that you would normally not have access to through conventional means."

    If you're experiencing this type of block abuse I'll gladly help you next time if you show me who was doing this. With this type of PvP now enabled it does not surprise me people are doing this type of abuse now to by-pass defenses.

    A bit pointless to discuss it here, to get back on topic anyway, unless this changes, I still won't be returning and I am certain that I'm not the only one who feels that way.

    The point is, it's suddenly being enabled. They began the game being safe in their claimed areas, and are now dying in them. I enjoy building outside at night, as well as inside.

    The simple fact is: Enabling PvP in claimed areas is juts inconveniencing people more so than it would to keep it disabled. It is not logical to enable PvP in people's claimed areas.

    I agree with @Rick PvP should be optional is your claims and not forced upon players who might just want to play peacefully, make a nice farm ya know. However I won't not return to the game I just believe that PvP should not be forced upon this in a claim and by forcing this upon us expect chargebacks, not from me but just in general when you do something without asking the public that makes a huge change people are going to disagree/rebel and you either have to take it or change something. Just saying -Fuzzy

    I would've been slightly okay with this if there was a date to WHEN PvP in claims would be implemented.

    It was good of you to make wooden doors not usable in claims though, +1 on that note.

    A workaround could be a purchasable area in which you can't be PvPed. It'd work the same way as a claim but there'd be an in-game cost involved.

    But for now I'm gonna take full advantage of this change and try to fill up my Wall of Heads

    Completely understandable and I assure you they're aware of this rather abrupt change in gameplay. As for your gameplay style, it's unfortunate you were affected by it but the night time was never a kind mistress to anyone at any point.

    It's a slight inconvenience if I must be completely honest. In any case, I believe the devs are still testing things out and hopefully a middle ground can be reached in due time.

    The problem is, some base designs are harder to defend then others. Mine is a highly segmented base, with storage areas and farms not directly connected to my main base, as I favored form over function as it were. So my choices are basically:
    1) Build a massive wall around the region I wish to have. This will take a immense number of claim blocks.
    2) Create tunnels or smaller walls, ruining the design.
    3) Waste 50% of the game time doing nothing.

    This choice has alienated several players. It should be reversed as soon as possible.

    I have a few ideas assuming your zone looks like I think it does. I could help with supplies and labour within reason as well.

    @Rick Are you still not up to play MC even if @Squidd can make your claim impenetrable?

    According to Mojang people who already paid for ingame perks may keep them as long as they become available to players through ingame currency or by default. Since people already donated for more homes and silk spawners (something you are now adding to be available to all players through ingame currency) I feel that the players who already donated should be given those perks. There is no reason to give something to donators then remove it and give no compensation.

    Something that could be done is make 2 donation ranks, a legacy one and a normal one. The legacy one would keep the /homes and silk spawners and the new donation rank would not have that. They can still be called the same rank ingame, just different permission ranks.

    Not really, no. The reason I play minecraft is to see my OWN ideas come to life. No offense to Squidd's skills or anything of the sort, but I'm standing my ground on this one.

    Likewise for me. I'm currently fortifying the base in my own style at least, having come up with a idea that is a acceptable compromise between form and function.
