I don't belong to a fraction, call me a independent contractor. I experimenting if it is possible to survive in a war zone and for how long.but before I found where I was I must of died up to a dozen times. I now located a resource heavy environment and going hard to get them before a fraction finds it or me.
I can understand you have found it hard to get started, but you must remember that some of the players .. mods included have being playing minecraft since the beginning and they have become experts in acquiring items. being a mod they have no extra rights than you and me. they are just dam good at the game.
preserver my friend die plenty of times like I did... but eventually you can find a unclaimed spot, hopefully away from any fractions to go mining on..
Like i said man I was on for 3 days, dying 2 to 3 times a session, killed by mobs, falling, and starving to death.
preserver and never give in.. that's the minecraft way...war world was never going to be easy.
by the way I just died again today from a fall. lucky for me i wrote down where I was. so it should be easy to finish what I started, if Iam not found first.
