So, I just got kicked from a server for griefing (IE building stairs for the enemy). I believe I should seek other peoples opinions on this design. So, here's the general idea. It cost 500 stone/750 wood, and ,realistically, the slope might be larger, but, like I said, it is the general idea, not the actual design. The bit in question, as you most likely have already guessed, is the slope at the front. So why is it, that I consider it beneficial to the integrity of the tower, for the front to be sloped? This is because there are 3 main threats to a towers integrity: 1)Catapults/Ballistae 2)Kegs 3)Builders Now, this design does nothing to protect against the first threat, however, it does in the remaining two: In the case of kegs, one would have to bring it up the slope, where it will be a prime target for archers, and, if tossed there in a hurry, then it will roll down towards the bottom, where the damage would be minimal. In the case of builders, the situation is that they usually build a small roof to protect themselves. When it comes to perpendicular walls, it takes 3 blocks and a door(enough to build with replenishment resources). In this case, it is more difficult to make a roof, as you need to cover a larger area. In any case, the base of the tower will almost always be the most vulnerable, even if there is a saw trap, it will not last for long in a real siege-most tower designs I've seen others build take one keg to get through. So what do you guys think? Should building a slope be considered griefing? Do they add to the towers integrity? Will Donald Trump be elected president? Please, share your thoughts!
