The new claim system is an absurd and stupid mistake.
Okay, somebody "Buy" the island, all right, but the power to destroy everything of others that are put to inhabit the island and to be able to keep everything that those people have collected, knowing that besides it will not have the possible punishment to face when losing the island by not Having enough people, it's just going to damage the game.
I Understand that there is a system, so that said "owner " can request to move something, or even, that there is a communication system. Even that there would be a system of "homage " or of elections (see the Star Wars galaxies with the player-cities). But as the new system is made, this game has no future. Because there is no room for beyond the first to claim the islands.. And the population is sufficiently huge, as to that or put 40,000 islands or this leads to leave the game, especially once it is finished.
