    KitPVP Map 6!
    A new season of KitPVP has begun

    [​IMG]

    What is new?

    • Brand new KitPVP map built by @Cheez and @Progtrash
    • Emerald per kill is now calculated based on the items in the inventory of the victim
    • Items no longer drop on death, instead they are removed completely.
    • You no longer gain EXP from killing players. However, EXP bottles have been made cheaper.
    • Shop and Kit items have been buffed significantly to reduce the gap between starter gear and maxed-out players.
    • New Duel mode: Combo. Invulnerability ticks is limited to 2 in this duel mode, meaning you can get hit 10 times a second instead of only once.
    • Added a basic queue system for Duels for easy matching up.
    • Duels now have ELO rating.
    • Extra emerald bounty on players with high killstreaks.
    • 20% of emeralds per kill is now shared across assists.
    • Repair cost is now based on item type, enchants and durability.
    • Protection 3 enchanting limit has been removed.
    • Anvils can now be used in the warzone during combat instead of only in spawn.
    • ELO leaderboard removed from the main KitPVP gamemode.
    • Basic Crate has been removed. Special Crate revamped.
    • Removed some duel arenas

    Update pretty bad...
    - I'm not sure why items dropped is disabled, apparently it's for the lag but haven't you thought about the spawn point where players are just AFK so wouldn't that cause FPS lag spikes when people join that have bad CPU or PC? You can't kinda avoid it either because the spawn is super small
    - I mean the map is completely super small, the duel arenas are bigger than the Kit Map like wtf...
    - Not sure why the whole aspect of kits were removed, just doesn't look neat at all... ( clearly P2W )
    - Staff are aware already pretty sure, but earning emeralds is kind of bugged, for example I get an assist and I earn 8 emeralds, I actually earn 2 emeralds but that should be under the bug threads.
    - Not sure why duels are calculated by ELO... Have you thought about just including Ranked / Unranked match-up instead?

    Whole note, duels are better imo and more stuff implemented, improvements seen, however the Kit Update is pretty bad...

    • Players sitting AFK would not affect the amount of fps other players receive.
    • The map size was decreased because 70% of the world on map5 was not even used.
    • All kits have been upgraded. So depending on your view of pay to win, nothing was changed a whole lot.
    • All new updates come with bugs. The owners are aware of this and it will be fixed next restart.
    • Ranked / Unranked duels would entirely ruin the aspect of dueling. It was suggested by many players that ELO should be removed from the kit aspect itself and implemented into duels.

    - Well, the thought behind it was that your inventory is always full with random iron equips that you can't do anything with (literally useless), so we increased how many emeralds you get per kill based on what gear your opponent had. Guess it's not a popular change
    - It's slightly bigger than map 3 and 90% agreed that the previous map was way too big with an unnecessary underground/above ground aspect
    - Not sure what you're talking about. People complained that noobs stood zero chance against people with full diamond (iron vs diamond prot3), so we buffed the kits to diamond. It's literally the opposite of P2W?
    - Yes it will be fixed
    - This was literally one of the most suggested things... Remove ELO from the main arena and add duel queues.

    There is an effect on the kits, with the ranks now you get Diamond Gear with on it enchanted, so that means it will take less time to grind since they're already enchanted ( without using xp ) I also don't personally see the point in ELO for kit Duels but I guess that's not a huge problem at all. People with bad CPU's will be effected if there is like 6 people in the same place AFK'in at spawn and it will lag them out when they spawn because they have to render the world in... Especially if their chunks are on like what 1 - 3 ?

    The gap between the lower and higher kits have been lowered MASSIVELY. Without a rank you now have the ability to receive diamond armour with an almost zero delay. The cost of EXP bottles have also been lowered which means it is easier to make a set regardless of what rank you are.

    Yeah I understand but the problem is last was too big but this is way too small...

    What I mean by p2w, warrior kit ( I presume Default ) has a regular Diamond Set, I guess that's good but then the villagers sell it for 50 ems each... maybe you forgot to remove it? XD, archer kit is in Iron Protection II, fair enough that can compete against warrior kit, now this is what I mean, Knight Kit is Protection I, fair enough not huge of a difference, difference is basically xp was used, Berserker and above has Prot II+ which means it's already enchanted and much grinding doesn't need to happen since the players can't even pick it up to fight with at least if they kill the player, which means they have to grind for it instead of earning the loot from the rich players, now what if I say about a bunch of rich kids with kits, players with no upper-end kits don't have a single chance against them without grinding hard for it.

    To be honest I don't really care about the ELO, that's fine, I just didn't see the point in it

    It only feels small right now because it just reset and a lot of players logged in, but it's bigger than map 3 and with a normal player count it's fine.

    Well, we did make XP bottles much cheaper, AND increased how many emeralds you get per kill. I would say it was worse before: If someone had diamond prot3 there's zero chance an iron can beat him, at least now everyone's on diamond.

    Fair enough it's reset but still you would like a nice experience while a lot of players?

    This is what it feels like... Tags everywhere, huge leader board with name tags everywhere, hardly able to see the view or anything good but PEOPLE THAT ARE AFK... I want to view the map, the sick view NOT TAGS, just because it's reset doesn't mean later on the map doesn't have a potential to increase players, it's like you're waiting for the player count to fall by saying it feels small just because there is a lot of players XD

    The new KitPvP map has only been up for less than 4 hours, so you can't already conclude that people with a bad CPU are going to lag out, just because the spawn is significantly smaller than the previous ones. I'm not saying that this isn't going to happen, but no one has complained about it yet, not even when there were like 60 players online at KitPvP at the very beginning.

    I mean the first sentence I quoted clearly says you're talking about people lagging out, but okay.

    It's nice to have a queue that nobody is using.
