Hey everyone, have you ever been stuck in a fight, for over a minute?

Have you ever noticed, that potions may be over powering?

Well you've come to the right place!
Hey Im Deansk89, owner of PlagueCraft.net #9 in the world.

With all the experience I have in PvP combat, and using potions
ive noticed a drastic change in the PvP servers.

Armor was increased so that you would take minimum damage, all untill your
knuckles would bleed and your armor would degrade.

Poison potions, can get you down to 1 heart in less than a few seconds
and arnt that difficult to make. I mean Notch what gives?

So as i watch people kill each other, I see Fisting, being use-less against the
all Powerful heroic armor.

Now Wooden/stone/iron swords without armor have become use-less.
Will the poor suffer in Combat? Will only the rich win?
Notch decided to give Players, weak armor pre.1.0

Then he took 3 steps foward and made armor almost impossible to
Yes armor was weak, but now it just too strong.

and Why arnt people complaining?
A: they have not read this blog.

If you Notch were out there to see, all
Of the poor players living on Survival server, if only
Notch was there to seeo ¦.

Like the Blog? Reward us, Click the up arrow on the top left AKA: give me a diamond (:

Wanna see the server? IP: server3.fragcorner.com:25569

I own this server, and notch has gotta fix the armor problem!

Hurry notch!

I think your right. PVP used to be about skill, stalking and spying. Now it's about potions and rambo'ing and armour. 100% Agreed

Its still requires skill... They just made the battles more lengthy so its not just "tap tap" kill "tap tap tap tap" kill...

Minecraft would be better off without them anyway. Minecraft started to suck when 1.8 showed up. What a disappointment

First of all in minecraft its not hard to become "rich" so to speak... you go out get resources and fight, the stuff is right in front of you, you just need to put some effort in to get it...
Personally i think the potions and enchantments make for a better pvp experience, gives me more content and more options which is awesome!

Well one thing you fail to understand in competition is balance. Content is fun, it's great, but if it isn't balanced then the competition goes down the drain. I don't have much experience in pvp minecraft, but I have a lot of competitive experience in other games and this is a law that all good competitive games need to abide by. Balance > content. But the more content you have while keeping balance makes the game better, generally.

What needs to be "balanced" again? Sure some things MAY be over-powered but whats stopping you from getting that potion yourself to "balance" the competition... You come to battle prepared! Not with a pitiful wooden, stone, and even in most cases an iron sword.
And one of the cardinal rules of pvp: never go into a pvp battle expecting you will win (this rule applies more for EVE online but I believe it applies for pvp in minecraft too)...
My first encounter with potions, you know what I did? I died, BUT, rather than complaining that the shits "SOOO" overpowered I went to my base and built myself a potion laboratory... My first encounter with heavily enchanted equipment... I went out at night to slay some mobs so I can enchant my shit...
EFFORT people! You put effort into it then you can come to battle with you godly equipment and have an even battle with someone else with godly equipment...
