But of course, it would be best if they didn't straight up steal stuff.

Pretty much this. Imitations are inevitable, but that doesn't mean we should tolerate straight up plagiarism.

I think this is what everyone is feeling. I don't care if he makes a shitty copy of our server, but outright stealing the stuff we worked on? Not cool.

Yep. If the admins want to do something about it, so be it. Otherwise leave it alone.

You don't need just us to point this guy out. Anyone can help make sure this guy stops stealing our builds and ideas. Don't just point at us and say 'do something about it.' Jump in and help us out =)

He's using a map that was made publicly available right? I don't see the point in waging a war against this kid for using assets that were accessible to anyone.

Given his attempt at emulating the NAWv1 map, I would entirely doubt that he would be able to sustain any sort of creative facsimile of the NAW servers. He doesn't have the server plugins, he doesn't have the community.

By admins, I mean the game admins, not forum mods.

I have the utmost respect and trust for our forum mods, and for the most part the only reason they, meaning luny and emp, aren't in game admins are due to wanting to play the game too.

Sorry if that sounded snarky, didn't mean anything by it.

I'll make my own Minecraft server! With hookers! And blackjack!

I don't know what map he's using. I don't particularly care, either. The idiots on Youtube that get us confused with the subpar imitiation are the same idiots that we probably wouldn't be accepting anyway.

Ouch, so summed up: Substandard version of Nations@War for Substandard Individuals.

They didn't make it into the server for whatever reason, but let's not start sliding into elitism here.
