As an FYI for those wondering what this recent PVP talk is about.
Kr last night designated a small square area on the lava tower grounds as a PVP region - meaning if 2 players stand in that region they can hurt each other. The long term goal for the area is to feature (at least) 3 different pvp activities:
- King of Ladders
- Full contact Hockey
- Some sort of combat arena
Accommodations will be made on site for players to be able to store valuables and reset their spawn point beforehand so that nothing important is lost. The goal of this region is not to kill players maliciously or to take their stuff, it's to allow for competitive games that otherwise would not be as fun without the hitting.
The King of Ladders game will be the first thing completed for sure. I would expect very soon. The current plan is for an obsidian pillar starting at the ground (Y=70) going up to Y=200 with ladders on all four sides of the pillar. I'm just thinking of what kind of bonus features it should have (please feel free to make suggestions).
The Hockey Rink is nearly done but it's Misianthrope's project so hopefully this public shaming will make him sign back on soon
The combat arena is a more long term thing. I'm going to take a closer look at what's out there and see if there's anything that would be good to have on our server. I don't want it just to be a room people fight in, I'd like to have random redstone hazards that add to the challenge and stuff.
Anyways, this is all pretty early but that gives you a good idea what's going with this pvp business. More news as it comes.
