  1. Raids and counter measures I am thinking through a base design and need ideas on how it could be raided and possible counter measures. Here is my current thought. Building in an underwater cave on the island. I would like to get one with the smallest entrance as to prevent riding larger tames in. Raid tactical I have considered: 1) Flack run. This can be prevented with correctly positioned heavy turrets. 2) Mana jumping I have seen a lot of base designs where a mana can dart over the turret wall and destroy the generator. This can be countere
  2. So your telling me I have time to grapple a mana darting around like crazy and kill it before it can near insta kill me with its breath? I was weight running with an Argy 5000k health around 55 armor saddle and a mana jumped near me. Within 3 seconds my Argy was frozen died and I was frozen and killed.

When the balance is tipped towards the raider everything gets wiped constantly(as things currently are). When the balance is tipped towards bases people build up excessively. With a good balance no base should be unraidable but there should be a challenge and a cost involved in it. Currently you can foundation wipe most all bases with a rock elemental or other Dino for soaking and a mek or arthropluera to break metal. That means anyone t
