so recently as we all know the border has been reduced to 1000 (from 1500) which is extremely bad. There is a couple of reason for it, one of which is that you don't have enough time mining, second reason is the odds of you finding someone who either kills you or vice versa is greater since the map becomes smaller, third reason is it's basically unplayable. You already don't have enough time to mine and get stuff. Many people also think the changes in the border was a bad decision, some people i've heard like the changes to border. I suggest atleast to compensate with longer game times, since the map is smaller you should either add longer grace periods or make it so that the border starts to shrink at 25 min or even less.
