Hey guys,

Today, we unveiled the brand-new WoM Hub server! The WoM staff have put in a fair bit of effort for this, so we hope you enjoy it! There are a few things on the server at the moment, including:

  • Spleef
  • CTF (Capture the flag)
  • Mob arena
  • PvP duel arena
  • Connect 4
  • And more to come!

These arenas are not all that will be released, but they're what we have working at the moment. Let's have a brief look at them in a bit more detail...

 

Spleef

To join the spleef arena, simply go on the WoM Hub and type /spleef join. This will take you into a queue, and when another player joins the queue you will be pitted against each other. The objective of Spleef is to destroy the ground underneath your opponent, making them fall. The last player who hasn't fallen off the arena is declared the victor.

CTF

The objective of Capture the Flag is, as the name implies, to capture the enemy team's "flag" and bring it back to your own flag. You cannot capture the enemy's flag if your flag is not at your base. The "flag" in this instance is a coloured wool block, in the same colour as the corresponding team. Team members can be identified by the coloured wool on their heads. As of right now, there are two CTF arenas: The default arena and Airship Warfare. To join the default, type /ctf join. To join the airships, type /ctf join ctfships. Either of these will take you into a waiting room and queue the same way Spleef does.

Mob arena

The Mob arena pits players against an endless horde of monsters that come in waves. The objective is to stay alive as long as possible and get the highest amount of kills. You can join the mob arena by typing /ma join. Once you've joined, you can select from a list of classes and mark yourself as ready. When all players are marked as ready, the battle will commence.

PvP duel arena

The duel arena puts you on a small airship, with just one other player. The objective is to kill the opponent. To join, type /arena join. This will enter you in a queue and the queue works the same way as Spleef's queue.

Connect 4

Connect 4 is a massive, fully redstone-operated, minigame based on the real-world game of the same name. There are two players, rings and circles, and the objective is to get four of your mark in a horizontal, vertical or diagonal row. It's a bit difficult to explain how it works, so have a look at /warp connect4!

 

Have fun, and stay tuned - we'll be releasing more content for the hub as time goes on!

Awesome

This is great. Minigames will be nice when I want a break from smp but still want to play. I do have one question about the commands. Is there any way we can put the game name on a sign to hit or with a button below it to press and just tie that action to a command block that enters the / command? I know not everyone reads the forum so it would cut down on questions. Also, we have a lot of younger players that might the click system more user friendly and improve server accessibility for those new to the server.

@pointystic - This is something that I will be working on with HUB over the next month or so. We just wanted to get HUB out in the open and hope to improve on it based on feedback (:

@mrsnowglobe- thanks for all

@mrsnowglobe- thanks for all the hard work you and the other staff have put in. I really love this server, how everyone works to improve it and that constructive ideas are welcomed, even if the things we suggest are at times totally unrealistic :)

@pointy when it's working, those water portals should do everything, so people won't really need to do many commands at all.

Awesome!

The HUB is looking great so far. I don't mean to be pushy, but any ETA on when the base capture me Levian an Jak made will be up? Can't wait to play it.

Suggestions- Raise the cap of how many times the flag needs to be captured to over 1. So far I've seen games last >1 minute.

Maybe add Rewards into the HUB which can be redeemed on SMP. It's sad to see such a small amount of people on the server on only the second day.

My thanks to all the staff for giving WoM it's own custom minigame server!

If we all did what we were truly capable of doing, we would literally astound ourselves.

@liquid the plan is to have

@liquid the plan is to have items connect from hub to smp so we can add in prizes like Money, and items into the mobarena. It would also be possible to have "betting" games, where each person pays a certain amount of money (or even a certain item) to get into the game, and then the winner or winners take everything. However, if we gave a prize just for winning any of the player vs. player games, then two people could just sit there letting one person win all day, to collect the stuff.
