    Yeah, I was talking about the one from 2013. That was just when OITC was at it's prime and the one I was on, and I worked for that so much and now it's just gone.

    Maybe they should add a feature where you can try and obtain different achievements?

    Make minecraft fun?
    Just kidding.
    • Duel. Please, hate being a stupid pig all day. Also, make it that you can record your Duel wins in the stats menu so people can brag and strive to be at the top
    • Spectating. If you can spectate in OITC it would be great if you want to see a 1v1 or see a full game with good players.
    • Cosmetics- not weapon upgrades. That will make people who have played more have an advantage. It's supposed to be fun. Maybe if they can make diamond swords, but have the same damage as gold/wood swords. That would be pretty cool
    • advertise it - legit get popular you tubers to play it. Only way that people will come. Know its not likely, but you know.
    • smaller maps - these maps are to big. games with 4-5 people (which is most games now a days) last too long and get boring.
    • Expand the maps, don't just make it COD. Maybe maps such as CSGO and overwatch would be nice. I do see the limits, but it will be cool. Also custom maps would be nice.
    • Gamemodes - Elo and no elo. Wow so different. Make maybe the 5 lives thing i have been looking at.
    • Training - Make a training area, a small map, about rust size where people can join and just practice. No kill's counted for your stats and no one wins. Its infinite. This will let people have the chance of being able to practice without actually harming their stats.
    • Tournaments hosted by staff. This means that there will be an all message throughout the server stating " TOURNAMENT OITC" or something. More people would join and maybe some prizes in cosmetics.
    idk. i tried.

    Just to inform you all, I have been taking in everyone's suggestions and compiling them. I also am having ideas of my own come up, so I would like to share them as well.

    What do people think of a team match (possibly deathmatch or objective) with kits. Almost like overwatch type kits (well heroes in overwatch) where there a good amount of possibilities. The kits would also be balanced to an extent. I was thinking it would be a sort of vote for kit team match or just a normal team death match. What do people think of this? Additions? Suggestions? Obviously, I would suggest just a select few of the rooms be like this.

    Also, I was thinking about an in game currency. Would making people farm for coins or whatever in normal OITC 20 kill/5 live mode to get upgrades for cosmetics and mainly upgrades and kits in the kit matches be a nice formula?

    edit: obviously not like overwatch, but similar in terms to many kits that have different purposes and objectives, which balance with team objectives. However, not too much to take away from OITC itself.

    yea, i don't own overwatch or COD. I honestly see games like Overwatch being successful and figure that we should factor things from it into our games.

    Yea, my idea is not like overwatch at all. The factors I'm talking about are the many possibilities of games, like many kits all balancing out each other with team objectives. I too don't think it's anything that special, but since it has been a hit, taking small things it does and implementing them could be good.

    I don't agree with any of those getting removed. I think they're all actually good aspects to the game and that's just how it is.

    (ok i actually thought about it lool)
    I don't think you can stop kill stealers. I actually think that's a good aspect to the game.
    Not really sure about suicides. And I agree that leaving games is something that should be limited in the sense that Sirius said.

    As long as classic OITC stays as it is I've nothing to complain about really although I'd advise against kit upgrades as opposed to cosmetics.
    No real way of stopping kill stealing and it's part of the game anyway. Suicides are much bigger problem as in most cases it serves no purpose other than to spite the other player and is a really cheap strategy. Unfortunately though, suicides are pretty fundamental when in a 1v1 situation vs a hacker so anything done to prevent them would also have an effect there. As for leaving it would make the most sense to implement something similar to what is already in place in the ranked system of having a set number of kills to reach, before which stats are reset if a person leaves, and then wiping a player's kills if they leave afterwards.

    I think the reason OITC died was because of the lack of attention it now gets and because a lot of the fun and enjoyment has been taken out of the game. Let me expand on this before anyone starts getting triggered.

    With the "Lack of attention" I mean there are little to no players ever on this section of this server now. Its been overplayed and is no longer enjoyable. There is such a low amount of players on OITC that if someone is to join, they would see it was dead and probably leave to play another server or mini-game.

    With the fun and attention being taken out of it, its been the same for such a long time. Don't get me wrong, I love OITC and always have. Its just so hard to play now, because its the same as it always has been. I started playing in around early 2014 I believe and its always been the same gameplay. Sure there is ELO, stats reset, news spawns and maps. Which make it interesting for a while as you have to re-learn the spawns and maps but after a while it just goes back to the way it once was. Thats when OITC starts to die again, because players have no real reason to continue playing or any real motivation to grind for anything.


    Some of my suggestions for the game and my opinion on others suggestions.

    The deathmatch type suggestion, seems like a really good and fun idea personally. It could be a map rotation, like there is currently but a time limit to each game of like an hour? So players can play and just kill each other as many times as they went for that hour, then at the end of the hour the game ends it would say who got the most kills, most deaths etc etc. Then the players will be kicked and the map will change. Hopefully this makes sense, if not quote this and tag me and I'll try to re-explain.

    Some cosmetics sound pretty cool, like the old fire particle trial which a lot of players liked. Have this but make it so that you get different trials by increasing your stats. Not sure how this would work exactly but it could be measured in kills. a 1000 kills gives you one, 2500 gives you another then 5000, 7500 and so on and so on. Could be done another way, just a suggestion.

    Players who are on the leaderboards definitely need to be rewarded in some way. With either some kind of special cosmetic that only they can get or maybe a prefix next to their name? (Only for OITC of course). Otherwise, whats the point of getting onto the leaderboards? Sure its cool but after you finally get it, its not all that great. Its just a sign on a minecraft server at the end of the day.

    New maps. This definitely needs to be added as soon as possible really. Sure the COD maps are great and all but some of them are just too big and with smaller lobbies of players, its hard to finish a game before the time runs out. I'm not saying, remove all of the COD maps because a lot of them are really good and are great fun to play, but some of them are too big, too many places for players to suicide and over all, just make OITC less fun. So I guess a competition could be hosted? Like the creative plot competition but for custom made OITC maps. I think this would allow the community to get more involved with OITC and maybe bring back some players at it would start getting attention again.

    Advertising. The Jerry&Harry Youtube channel has just over 1.4 Million subscribers and their second channel has over 300k. With this amount of subscribers it should be fairly easy to get free advertisements. Just ask a few other Youtubers to come on, record a video and bang. The server would get a lot more attention again.

    A new spawn. Could host a competition (Much like the map one) for a new OITC spawn to be built. It allows the community to get involved and then nobody could complain that they "don't like the spawn" or "the spawn is sh1t"... Or anything along those lines really. I guess that J&H would chose like a top 10 out of all the maps and spawns build and then a vote would have to be made to decide which one. Or J&H could just pick, just thinking of ways for the community to get more involved (Well whats left of it at the moment).

    Just keep the OITC gameplay the way it is, but add more cosmetics, more fun and new things for players to do and work for (Cosmetics, stats etc.) and I'm sure that more and more players will come back to play.


    I can't really think of anything else to be perfectly honest but if I do, I'll add it to this comment at the bottom.

    IMO, as a previous OITC player, I would see the server having numerous players added on to the community as a result of the server
    bringing back 1.7.10, old maps, instant respawn, and the leveling system instead of elo. I can guarantee that more players will play the gamemode
    including myself. I can see this gamemode reviving itself if these changes were implemented.

    The maps are all the same I believe, instant respawn has returned, there is both a leveling system alongside the ELO system.

    I don't have a suggestion that hasn't been said but I would love to see a lot of what has been said being implemented and the gamemode returning to it's former glory.
