ethood1999 PvP Server
Every server out there is the same nightmare for everyone.. No one acknowledges you, theres far too many people on, and as a new person, you can practically do nothing. And when PvP is thrown into the mix and you're getting killed randomly without any help, frustration is probably the only thing you feel. That changes. Today. Right now.
Hi, I'm ethood1999. I created a server back in February because while SSP was amazing, I wanted more. My server has consisted of many of my Minecraft friends, and as time went on, we progressed, from Creative, to Survival to now PvP. We are taking a hardcore approach at PvP so that it could be as enjoyable as possible, even with the combat limitations of Minecraft. We play under almost no rules, so if you can handle just these main ones, then you will have an amazing experience on the server.
- Greifing, stealing, random killing - everything is ALLOWED.
- Respect moderators and admins and they will respect you.
- Most of all, have fun! Minecraft is for fun, and if you're not enjoying yourself, what's the use?
The way our server works is simple. You log in and you are in the middle of our spawn city which is a protected area that you can't get killed in. You should have a fountain in front of you and the shop is just past that (see screenshot 1). If you turn to your left, you will see the City Hall, marked the word "Hall" in glowstone (see screenshots 2 and 3). As a new person, you want to head in there. The first thing you should see is a whole bunch of huge, player-modeled statues (see screenshots 4 and 5 for an example). Each statue is built by and modeled after the leaders of each of our servers factions. Walking up to them will allow you to see signs on the statues that contain information about the faction, joining and how to join if you're interested. When you find the right faction, ideally, you probably will want to message the faction leader if they are online.
Getting into a faction is the first step of your long journey on the server. When you are a part of a faction, you are a part of a family. Your faction does everything together, or if they aren't doing it together, have a coordinated plan to work together (like 2 people mining and another 2 people exploring for enemy bases and another 2 people expanding the base). It's important that you get along with everyone. You should put yourself out there as a friendly person, because if two people don't get along, you put a hard decision on the faction leaders shoulders.
There's lots of exciting moments that can happen on the server like being invaded and having to quickly decide what to do in a now or never moment. Your faction might be planning a secret base on any of the other factions. While they were offline, you might have been in their base, knowing the exact location of everything, and maybe you have a TNT cannon set up outside, ready to blow them and their base up.. Literally, there's loads of possibilities of stuff that you can do on the server.
PvP can be fun and all, but what's the goal?
Good question. This is where the technical part of the server comes in. It might be a little bit confusing, but as a normal user, you only need to understand stuff about chest protection. Since that's easy to explain, I will start with that. If a user on a faction is online, their factions chests are all unlocked. If no one on a faction is online, then their chests become locked. Not a confusing concept, but I might be able to explain it better. Say PersonA and PersonB are both in FactionA, and PersonC is in FactionB. PersonA logs off for the night, leaving PersonB as the only one online on FactionA. Anyone that is online the server can open any chest that is in FactionA territory. Anyone and everyone. But when PersonB has to go, all of the chests automatically lock. This way, you can't steal from chests while no one is online and their chests can't be defended.
The next technical part is claiming land. Each person is entitled to 10 chunks, so if there is a 3 person faction, their whole faction is entitled to 30 chunks. But when someone dies, no matter how (killed by another play, fall damage, suicide, anything), they lose 2 power and in turn, their faction loses 2 power. So if FactionA has PersonA and PersonB, their faction can claim up to 20 chunks. Say their faction only claims 18 chunks. It would take two collective deaths towards that faction before anyone else can claim land. So if PersonC kills PersonB twice, then their faction can only handle 16 chunks out of the 18 that they have claimed. This leaves an oppurtunity for anyone else (or PersonC himself) to claim any 2 chunks of FactionA's territory for their team. But that isn't only limited to PersonC's faction. FactionC can be waiting and PersonD could be ready to claim the 2 chunks as soon as PersonC kills PersonB, which could lead to a really interesting and fun 3-way war.
Like I said, the possibilities are endless, especially with all of the features in Minecraft. They are very few servers out there like this. So now you are probably wondering how to join the server. There is no whitelist, so anyone can freely join as long as they have the IP address, but it would be helpful if you voted for our server on the following sites:
