so today i log in after a week of being absent (or a little more than a week, hard to tell with my schedule) and i find what i was afraid of.
someone has come in and destroyed my home, which was a castle in the process of being built, somehow took my chests and everything inside them and ransacked the water temple nearby, which i had only started to claim as my own. i marked clearly where my boundary was going to be, i had hoped that people would be nice and respect that while i got the claim blocks in order. but no, someone has gone in and filled the place with netherrack and taken the gold and killed the elder guardian (which doesnt respawn, so i was going to put it in a fish tank to ogle at).
now, im not saying i wasnt at fault, far from it in fact. i hadnt claimed nearly enough of either structures to complain about how my claim was ruined. actually i could, but thats not what im about. i left myself open to this, it WAS my fault for being vulnerable to this shit.
no, what im mad about is the fact that my brother, who bought minecraft solely because he wanted to help me with the water temple (we were going to turn it into a grinder for prismarine), had his stuff destroyed as well. his name is fracturedspleen, if someone happens to recall. he was helping me, he was going to build something great with me and now i have to tell him that all our work is gone.
shame on whomever did this. not for what youve done to me, but for what youve done to my brother, who was excited to play on this "awesome server you keep telling me about". he liked playing on the server, he liked the people and the atmosphere. he even commended the server on the optimism people showed after the Great Reset.
whatever. i needed to get this off my chest, to let this out and warn others about whomever on the server decided that they could get away with destroying and stealing my stuff. but i can start over, i can still build my grinder and play with my brother. ill be back, ill keep building and making things the way i want. hell, i was here at the start, ill probably be here till it ends.
you havent won, whoever you are, and youll never win. go ahead, destroy my things and ruin my build. you wont stop me from coming back and building it bigger and better. and some day soon, you're going to be caught, and youre going to be banned for the griefing. and ill still be here, building.
sorry for the long post and such.
