PvP Server Update

37 votes

As you may or may not know from my previous post, we've been trialing new things for the PvP server.  And as for a quick update, we have decided to ditch AntiCheat as it hasn't been able to perform the way we would like.  So on a good notice, we have switched to NoCheat+ in hopes of solving issues related to users hacking and etc.  Like previously, we unbanned any affected users who were banned due to problems regarding AntiCheat.

PvP Fight Club update

84 votes

Here's a response to the PvP questions that have been popping up lately:

Spawn: The pvp spawn has been moved further on to provide fresh new land for mining and mischievous griefing for the bored ones. The spawn area is setup roughly the same however has a slightly wider 'no build zone' around it. All random spawn signs (including those at the old spawn) will drop you somewhere near the new spawn.

AFK: There has been many complaints about people AFK'ing to avoid combat. AFK commands have now been blocked, however if you stand around idle for 60 seconds, you will be protected by the auto-afk system.

Considerations: We are considering a few things for the PvP server:

  • Inter-spawn Portal - we understand some people have setup base near the old spawn and don't want to move up, so we will implement a portal between the spawns if we get some positive feedback on that idea.
  • Entirely new map - there have been quite a few people wanting a new map - voice your oppinions below.
  • New map + new inventories - again, voice your oppinnions.

What happens on the PvP server is really up to you!

PvP Update - Spawn Camping Issue

101 votes

We have had numerous complaints about spawn camping on the PvP Fight Club server.

Just to be clear: This is not against the rules.

However, in order to find the balance between having a no rules server and having upset new players getting nowhere, we have decided to add a little feature to give those just starting off a fair chance.

Random Spawns

When joining for the first time or respawning, you will still go to the spawn point as usual, but you will now see signs like the below picture which you can right click to be sent to a random location. The location won't be extremely far from spawn, so you don't lose your bearings.

RandomSpawn signs will send you to a location away from spawn.
