I have heard rumblings among elements of the Ruinscraft staff that war is not going to be added to McAtlas. I disagree with such sentiment as I feel it stunts the servers longevity and overall appeal. War is inevitable on the conditions within McAtlas, i.e, limited space, resources, and the grouping of players into nations. The demand for a warfare function would mostly grow as these aforementioned factors become more apparent. Conflict will occur regardless of the addition of warfare. The raiding of unprotected settlements and combat in the nether only make more apparent. I for one remember combat occurring on the defunct Main server regardless of the restrictions placed by staff. The addition of war adds additional value to what one invests into the server as it adds an aura of uncertainty to the future of these invests thus increasing their value by increasing the drive to protect them. Also adding warfare could increase appeal to estranged Kit PvP and Factions players.
