Mojang and fellow minecrafters, I would like to see if we could get a raider type mob that can come and raid your place. They should have their own place like a village that you can raid. It would make minecraft more exciting and up the difficulty.
There remains the issue of determining what constitutes the "your place" they raid…
Zombie sieges are the nearest thing to this in the game to date and rely on some very fixed mechanics that make a zombie siege an exploitable (if slow) way to farm zombies.
Adding mobs that could use doors, trapdoors, gates, and ladders (which would seem necessary for raiding even very early bases) would be a large change to the game. An AI that could use iron doors/trapdoors (which would require locating the activating mechanism) as would be needed to be effective vs mid- to lategame bases, probably exceeds what is currently achievable….
