As of right now, there are plentiful amount of posts bagging on the new crew raids and their medals, these posts are particularly from Hfl and GRD members.
Its too early to release it./Content Patch 1.12
The Melon Development team, though I love them, has for a while now, been putting out updates, that in my eyes weren’t ready for release, a prime example is the medals with crew islands. I sincerely doubt that they did a test and got to a platinum raid, if they tried the raid feature they would’ve realized how insanely impossible it is to get the reward worth your time. For example Me, iBrae, dylansmission, FMCCC, fairywingsxox, Vexell, ThomasThePencil, Sanctifyd, and PhoHD (sorry if I’m forgetting anyone) all spent over an hour mining sandstone and raiding BBB’s base, we didn’t even get a single medal after 3mil blocks worth broken.

Content Update 1.8
Another example is when they released “Content Update 1.8 - Ore Spawners, New Skills, Chest Upgrades” as far as I’m concerned many thought of this as a flop, ore spawners were useless, the chests were still broken, and the only good thing was the Sunken Chest Buffs. They didn’t test spawners in a real world setting, and to back up these good idea patches executed horribly they say “We’d rather not make an overpowered and easy to abuse system thats why we release it less op early on then add to it”. In my eyes, that is not how it should work, because many players will spend hundreds of thousands on ore spawners and other items newly released that they basically get scammed out of it.
The patch notes, don’t explain enough, plain and simple. For example, going back to the crew battles, Vexell, a well known and widely regarded as a top tier player on the server, was unable to join our first raid because he had a soul shield on, none of us knew you couldn’t and apparently you also can’t use mining skills while in there what a surprise. It’s making the new players wanting to try new content, but also unwilling to. It’s horrible that because Vexell didn’t know a rule because it was never made clear, was exempted out of a raid.
This is what I find most irritating about the server, they release updates long before they are ready…
