Most custom PVP gamemodes you cannot build in, and as such are very different to how survival Minecraft is usually played. Its almost a whole new game for each gamemode.
Believe me, everyone who is great at PVP absolutely botched when they started Minecraft (like me lol), not even able to move around very well or look in one direction. I don't know about other people, but when I started playing hunger games I lost a lot at the beginning. I literally had a 0.045 Kill/Death Ratio. I played a lot and got better though, and on that same server I now average a 3.36, and deaths by natural causes (hunger, mobs, etc) count torwards that.
Basically, everyone starts off with nothing.
In the center of the map there usually is a whole bunch of chests with goodies.
You generally can't break blocks (you won't be able to in this one).
Chests and traps and building are scattered throughout the map, and from the very beginning PVP is allowed.
Once you die, your dead. No respawning for in a classic Hunger Games gamemode.
Any teams, etc are allowed, but there can only be one winner.
In the gamemodes truer to the novels, only 24 players per game, but this one will most likely be 16 players because my computer can't handle much more then that.
These are competitive games by themself, many extremely enjoyable.
You really should try a few PVP servers. Here are some of the better ones:
My Personal Rating, 1-10
4 mcsmash.com (MCPVP's version of Super Smash Bros, really fun, but I like Shot Bow's better. Round based.)
8 mc-sabotage.com (MCPVP, like Mafia where a large, uninformed majority who doesn't know who is enemy and who is ally tries to figure out who is the informed minority is and kill them. Round based.)
7 mc-hg.com (MCPVP's Hunger Games, not very classic. This Hunger Games spawns on a untouched world unlike normal and has almost no chests. Almost 200 players per round! Last player standing wins. Round based.)
5 mcpvp.com (MCPVP's Standard PVP server. Any destruction of building allowed.)
7 kit.an00b.com (Kit PVP server, you get a packet of items to start with whenever you die called a Kit, and you can use ingame money from killing people to buy new kit. Play on built map, and no breaking of blocks.)
7 s1.mc-infected.net (Super Gaming's mc infected server. A few people start as zombies, and respawn whenever killed. When a human is killed they are turned into a zombie. Zombies win by infecting all humans, humans win by surviving for six minutes. Round based.)
These are just a few servers I really really like, and believe me, you can get a lot of playtime of them!
All your Rank 5 stuff is working, right?
BTW, /res tp Black_Market
now you can go to the wood level, which is way cheaper then dirt or bedrock.
There is an event on June 15th (the first saturday of summer, at least for my school).
Prizes are big, and it will be loads of fun, so it would be sweet if you came!
After five long hours of trying to figure out how to paste just your house back in from an old backup, I have finally restored your house.
I'd like to clean up your yard a bit, if you don't mind. I'm going to fix up your house and stuff for you, once I'm done with this message.
I spoke with who did this, but they will remain anonymous. They intended no offense, in fact don't even know you, and blew it up only because they wanted your stuff. They thought you were another inactive home.
I fixed your Residence so this can't happen again (all of your Residences, for that matter).
Also, I had to take an old backup of the server and take the two Bukkit storage chunks (I believe 8 chunks by 8 chunks, so 128 by 128) that surround your house, and place them extremely far from anywhere. So now there is a full copy of spawn and the houses surrounding it that is not protected by Residence! XD I left it there.
