Server Wide Hunger Games / Survival Test

Post  HeyLookoverthere on Tue May 10, 2011 1:20 pm

The basic idea is that at a prearranged time we backup our world and start fresh. (with a smaller map border than we have now) It could be everyman for himself but I think 2-3 man teams would be ideal if we have enough people. Each time should arrange a non-game chat way of communicating (AIM, skype, etc..)

No one (myself included cause I wanna play) has /give, /warp, /tp or basically any abilities. also no beds. We all log on, team up, and wander in separate directions, there is no PvP combat until the first night.

If you are killed, by a player, a mob, or sheer stupidity, you'll spawn in a bedrock jail with no door and need to declare your death and I'll server /tphere you to one of your teammates, marking off one of your lives in a .txt file on my computer. After three lives you are out, last man/team standing wins. (rewards would be given back in our normal world, which we would load up again once the contest was over.)

Anyone interested?

What rewards would you want? we could have rewards for 1st, 2nd, 3rd

Ventrilo

This sounds pretty sweet. I think it'd be fun - with Minecraft, I'm all about starting fresh and building a character/building/inventory/town from scratch. The three lives thing is cool, so people have some leeway in case they have a bad fight or fall off a cliff or something.

For third party chat, I recommend Ventrilo (Vent) - it's essentially press-to-talk voice chat, and 8-person capacity servers are free. So we could run one or two Vent servers: Two if we have more than 8 people - we can put each team on their own server.

I'm not too familiar with what you guys have in mind for an economy, but I think it'll be kinda skewed after all the /give that took place when it was available. It's hard to say what prizes there should be. A trophy or plaque in a recognized hall of fame or something (bragging rights, basically) is another option.

Looks like we'll start at 6PM eastern. It'll start as everyman for himself but you're allowed to form teams of up to three.

Definitely. Sounds like a sweet idea, but how are teams decided?

Also, like 3 things:
1.) There should be a time cap. Say about 3 hours or something. When there's 10-15 minutes left, all players get warped close to each other, in some kind of arena or something. Otherwise, I see this going on forever, solely because people will wander too far off and not be able to find the other team.
2.) This kind of thing not only doesn't belong in "Your Creations", it prolly deserves to have a new category (ie "Server Events") created for it and its like.
3.) As far as rewards go? Eh, promotions for those that aren't at the highest tier. Otherwise, why not just let them choose from a short list, like:
+Block of diamond,
+2 or 3 blocks of gold (No set value has been established, to my knowledge, for diamond)
+9 or more blocks of iron
+A few stacks of any non-precious item (ie saplings, dye, etc)
