We had plans on joining the guys on the [US] L.A Rustmore server but sadly the server was immediately hit with a DDoS attack right after the wipe. Jeremy Bigjerms just couldn't wait so we were forced to try another server and this is when Jeremy found [USWest] Bay Area which is at net.connect 22.214.171.124:28715 which was recently wiped and had a high average population in excess of 100 players and a minimum of 50 players at all times. Bigjerms always begins by scouting out his favorite spot which is at the beach at coast but with this new update, things had changed dramatically. Now with the ocean water rushing in, we didn't know what to expect from our usual build.
After the foundation was created and the first level of the structure was established, it turned out pretty interesting. Because the coast was a bit more level than before. We were able to build a much wider base than we normally would have. The Resource Coast area before the update would have sustained a 1x3 or 2x3 at most but now he was able to build it nearly as wide as 2x6. Also interestingly the back of the base had a tiny sliver of walk-able land which led to a tiny piece of ground surface just big enough to build the 1x3 unraidable structure.
On the first day after building most of the first floor and some of the unraidable foundation, the base was raided by a couple of guys, however with Bigjerms smooth talking, he was able to strike up a deal with them which lead them to moving in and becoming part of the team. I actually missed most of this however I did enjoy listening to it in it's entirety on Mumble.
Sadly, I was unavailable to play for a week but when I returned, I found this gigantic monolith of a towering building created by Bigjerms and the group. I was quite surprised, especially on a server so heavily populated to find they were able to build such a huge base with a group of less than 10 people. You can imagine it's not easy to farm that much resource in such a small amount of time, yet in comparison to Rustmore it is probably on the smaller side of what we've see before.
