I used to love this game. Until a hacker came into the private server and destroyed everything. Quit the game and never came back. I didn't loot from other people. They were friends, and no one else was supposed to be able to get into the server. Shame.
My whole thing is, if you don't want to get looted, play on a private server. If you enjoy stealing from others, don't get mad when people take from you. Simple.
