    Since the cell update that increased the sizes of all cells significantly the amount of gens within a cell has also increased drastically meaning a new and faster way of cleaning up a cell is extremely needed.

    The idea is simple but would be extremely useful and well received as it benefits everyone while balancing a part of the game that is needed at this point. The idea is simply being able to enchant your gen breaker.

    Potential Enchants:
    • Gen Speed 1-5 : This would allow you to mine generator blocks faster.
    • Crude Speed 1-5 : This would allow you to mine crude ore blocks faster.
    • Shatter 1-6 : This would work similar to how shatter currently works allowing you to have a random chance for it to proc, blowing up a specific area of crude and gens around the block you mined.
    • Detonate 1-3 : This would mine a 3x3x1 area around the block you mine every time
      at level 1, 3x3x2 at level 2 and 3x3x3 at level 3.
    • Fracture 1-5 : Works the same as fracture on picks but instead works on crude and ore generators.
    Because of the minimal enchants available and needed I would suggest that the amount of energy needed to level up a gen breaker would be similar to guards leveling.

    Reason to why the update is needed:

    The reason this update is needed is due to cells becoming significantly larger making raids last significantly longer. On Sahara I own a a 5.5bill VIP cell, a raid on this with around 20 players all with gen breakers being on 24/7 with none of them logging off until all the gens are picked up would take around 48+ hours (there is no raiding it in parts as all the gens are in one area with none stacked). This is a fair and generous assumption to say seen as tho a 1.5 bill raid on the old raiding system with 15 diamonds and anywhere from 8-20 players cleaning up at a time all with gen breakers took us 16 hours to raid and clean up. (leaving around 150 mill of crude behind)

    If anyone has any other ideas on potential enchants or even just an expansion to this idea feel free to comment them.

    No that is the point, what he said was a answer to your Suggestion and there was nothing wrong that he said in it...

    Ya i dont believe you. Over 48 hours to raid a cell . Pffft. If that was even remotely true your suggestion wouldnt be to save 20 mins mining gens with a gen breaker. It would be to shave about 46 hours of the raid time.

    You clearly never had to take out gens from a cell that is actually worth something. It takes a bit of time to kill the actual guards, but once you kill them, it takes even longer to take out the stuff from the cell. That is the more difficult part, as it takes longer and at that point (unless nobody is online from that gang) they already know about the raid and are most likely attempting to call in people to defend it.

    You clearly have no knowledge of raiding if you doubt my comment.

    I am 95% sure that I have organised and completed the largest raid to happen on the server which was a 1.9billion VIP on Saharah (if someone’s done a bigger raid feel free to correct me) meaning I know how long raids take, If anyone can make a prediction on how fast a raid would take its me. As I’ve already said it took us 16 hours to raid and clean up that cell with 20 of us having gen breakers on the old system were raids were also faster. The cell I proposed as a 48hour raid is 3x the value and 24hours is 3x the length.
