    this trap needs to be manned, so i wouldn't suggest this structure for the beginning of the game, i should be when ur team is losing, or when ur team is out of spawns.

    Otherwise it's a great trap :thumbs_up:

    But also, it would take a long time to build so the enemy could capture the flag before you have build the tower.

    What if there aren't many players on the server and the build time is shorter?

    Hmm, cant decide if its good or not. It wouldnt really make too much of a difference but it would kill a fair amount of knights. I like your thinking but it needs to be modified to prevent basic scenarios and other scenarios. The trap depends on the fact that the enemy are dumb enough to enter the trap. I dont think this is original as I have seen it used a few different times. You should make the main entry for your team 5 blocks high with stone (its kinda hard to explain) and one trapdoor at the base of the stone. This makes the door unreachable by the enemy but also lets your team get in your tower easily. But all in all good work and keep it up.
    P.s. By the way I liked reading your post a lot. ;p

    i really like this design. i combined it with my other favorite booby trap because my other favorite trap is already basically an entrance to the faustpit. plus if you're off gathering resources, this primary trap will take care of one or two knights without your attendance.

    oh yeah, i forgot to mention that putting it that close to the tree was intentional so you can hide the spike. a lot of builders will kill themselves on the spike trying to jump to ladder over, especially if you hide it behind the treetop by chopping it low.

    here's a faustpit for all you minimalist whiners who can't modify the design with your own brains. easy to start with a skinny wall, expand forward and then reinforce after this point from behind to prevent being collapsed by bombs:

    if you damage the bottom brick on the front a little bit, enemies may mistakenly think they've tunneled into your tower and come in more willingly!

  15. Hmm... won't enemy builders be able to build ladders for the knights going up? (Given that there is no tree to hide the spike.) While they're at it they can just block the entrance to the trap with stone blocks, making it obsolete... at least for a while. Other than that, its a great idea. Ruthless and ingenious at the same time. :)

    if there is an unthreatened builder in front of any tower, it's going to be ruined quickly. not to mention the second image does have a tree in front of it, so if that's your preference do that, obviously. :huh?:

    I think what he's referring to is that there is no roof access or multiple exits. Once the builder ladders up and stones the door/seals the roof, your team is completely unable to move past it

    you're obiously looking at the tower backwards. also even if you are, there is roof access. no matter how you face this tower, there is very easy roof access and multiple exits... also he is definitely talking about blocking up the ground level entrance with stone, not blocking the roof or the exits.

    Seems to me like the tower's built backwards. As a blue tower, the red team would be coming from the right, in which case my criticisms hold.

    If they're meant to come from the left, then I apologise.

    EDIT: I am talking about the most recent picture, by the way.

    sure, on most maps
    naw, there is roof access and multiple exits no mattter how you look at it... nonetheless:
    every feature makes sense when enemy approaches from left: solid unclimbable front, faust pit, drop trap, hiding place. none of them make sense with the enemy coming from the right. actually consider the tower if you're going to make criticisms. not trying to be a dick, but if you took 10 seconds to try and figure out why anything on the tower is there, you would have realized you were looking at it backwards. criticism much appreciated, but please actually figure the tower out before you give it.
