So I started playing applecraft in mid-2018 when the 13.1 patch hit and since have been in love with applecraft. They are one of the only servers that is able to support past 13.1 when everything started changing and still have a really relatively smooth running server. In the last 3 years that I've played, I have had some gripes with the lag, but have always stood by that it was a necessary evil to enjoy the protections that applecraft added that other servers didn't. Today, however, after getting booted from the server, for who knows what reason, I had 7 rares despawn on me. These rares included a kingsblood, magma saber, sundrop flower, and a full set of unbreakable netherite armor with a ton of really cool enchantments on them. Total the set cost over 100 stacks to make and even more than that took a lot of time to amass all the parts. In fact it took me about 6 months to get the necessary dbs saved up to create the set. Needless to say that 6 months worth of work being gone in a second has left me a little heartbroken and discouraged. Even more than that though when I asked a mod and admin if they could help me get the set back, they told be that "items that had despawned were unable to be returned to the player". So despite me having pictures of the full set, from screenshots I took a day prior and even posted in the screenshots section of discord showing off the set, I wasn't able to get the items back. I DO NOT BLAME THE ADMINS OR MODS. This is honestly very understandable because the admins/mods don't want you hiding items and getting free dupes from them and or a variety of other reasons I am sure we don't understand. What I don't understand however is how easy the mods/admins were able to give up on this. I spent MONTHS getting that set and all that could be done was a simple "so sorry". This is completely ridiculous. Why should WE the players be getting punished for applecrafts lag problem. I would not have lost the set if a lag spike hadn't hit right as I was dumping everything out of my inventory. On top of that I find it ridiculous that mods and admins alike can't offer anything. I know I'm not the first to be screwed over by lag and I probably won't be the last, so if this is something that happens frequently why are there no systems in place to help the players wronged by this? Applebranch/Applecraft, I love your server, I really do. I've spent countless hours online and have spent thousands of dollars of my own money helping people with irls. At the end of the day, the set was lost and that sucks, but it can be replaced with time. However, I don't want to put time into a server that treats its player base like shit when it comes to these kinds of issues involved with its own server. Unless something is done and put in place to help people screwed over by this sort of stuff, I will be leaving the server as well as encouraging others to also leave until something drastic is done to CARE for the player base. Anyone who does stay on the server to exercise caution with everything they do. As it stands if you lose an item or anything, for any reason due to server-related accidents the people who are put in place to help you can not help you and you are on your own. On your own is not a way you should have to play Minecraft, or do anything in life. If the support systems can support what is even the point in having them?
