I've held my tongue and kept out of this forum for quite awhile, but some of the things that have been going on are getting ridiculous. While there are problems I have in regards to the balance of features on the server, the economy, etc., this is more of a rant on my part on the community that is being established on the MC server. I was on the server today and a new character came on the server. He was promptly helped by the staff with his questions and such, no biggie. He then asked to build near people because he didn't want to be alone. Now, most people said no, which is perfectly understandable. I decided to be a nice guy and let him tp to me and give him some things and let him build in my area. This is where things went bad for me. After giving the guy some decent equipment and some supplies to get started on his home, I was killed by another player (not the new guy). Not really a big deal, I suppose. I didn't have anything valuable on me really, so that didn't make me upset. What got me upset was that 3 more people, all separate players, then each killed me upon me exiting my home. So, in total, I was killed by 4 players in the span of a few minutes. The last 3 deaths I had literally nothing on me and was either standing still or in an open field, posing no threat whatsoever. Oh, and they also killed the new guy I was helping repeatedly. This kind of behavior is frankly disgusting. I'm taking some time and resources to help a new player to the server, and this seems like the perfect opportunity to not only kill me repeatedly while I have no gear/items and am posing no threat, but also to repeatedly kill a new player whom I'm trying to help out. Out of the players killing us in this scenario, one of these players was a MC staff member, and the other 3 are also staff members at this community. While I think it's distasteful for non-MC staff members to be acting like that, I find it abhorrent that a MC mod would be behaving in this way. I would figure they would be approving of helping out a new player like I was, but no. It's a PVP server, so fuck it, right? This is only one small piece of a trend I'm not liking in the current MC server, and I'm sure I'm not the only one here who shares this view. The server has become a place where there is no community outside killing other players for any reason at anytime, and it's really disappointing. When people can't even take a break from this behavior to help out new players to the server and get them settled in, instead actually setting them back by repeatedly killing them over and over again, there's something wrong.
