So, you don't enjoy PvP as much because you suck? Or maybe you want to be a pro at it? Well, here is ow to make PvP less of a gamble, and more of a great test of skill.

Sword Combat
The one thing you need to remember in sword combat is to always keep your crossheir focused on the player you are fighting. That is the backbone of all sword combat. If your crossheir is all over the place, you cannot fight. You will not do damage. You will just swing at the air. Knowing this, you can circle around the player you are fighting. You can make it nearly impossible to hit you and resist your critical hits. This makes PvP more of a test of skill than spamming your left-click.

Bow Combat
This, for some reason is the most hated part of PvP. Well, according to various tests, this is because bow PvP requires good aim. The key and secret to good aim is to make your crossheir right over the player's head, or right on the player's head when fighting from above. Obviously, you are not Katinss just yet, but if you practice your aim will be amazing. Once you got your aim in, let's talk about fully charged bows. A fully charged bow does more damage. However, do not let that stop you. If you are in a bow duel, you can sacrifice a fully charged shot for a quicker shot, resetting the opponent's shot, letting you land a few fully-charged shots on them. One last thing, if you have a sword, and you are not able to hide from a rain of arrows falling on you, block. It reduces the damage the arrows do.

Potions
First of all, avoid damage and poison potions in close combat

For more information and tips go to the Minecraft Wiki and search PvP, or just find a guilds on PMC or the forums. This video by generikb also helps: http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=CdBcE_MKAbg 



I hope this helped!  Expect more tips regularly!

I prefer ranged combat myself because most people use swords and can't defend well against arrows flying at them. This guide was helpful for my melee skills. I'm not so good at it. :/

Well, the only fix to PvP at the moment is SethBling's BlingCombat plugin. BTW I am Katniss... In Minecraft Hunger Games anyway...  @Agent40 I am guessing that the readers will infer that I mean trajectory and physics having to do with the path your arrow takes.

I personally think the whole PvP system nees to be redone as it is terrible. Spam clicking your mouse to win a 50/50 fight? Sounds crap.

There needs to be more significance in PvP as it's fun at the moment, but then again is it really? I think the archery system has been done perfectly and that's changed PvP action since it was added.

First of all I don't agree with you that there is no skill involved in minecraft pvping. In hunger games you have to decide if you can take out your enemy depending on what gear they have and who they have killed already also you have to know your terrain. You have to knowing where cliffs are that you can hit your enemy off of or ambush and so much more. Although I do agree that Mojang should add some new weapons (no guns though) but to say it has to all be redone or has no skilled involved is crazy in my opinion.

Hunger games is not combat though is it. I'm talking about when both players are engaged in sword to sword combat with the same armor, there's only a 50/50 chance that one of them will win. Knocking someone of a cliff is not really to do with PvP, it's more a techinique that you use to your advantage.

Well if all you’re doing is fighting in an open space with same armor and weapons then I guess it is a 50/50 chance but nobody really fights like that. They usually just play pvp mini game where it isn't a 50/50 chance.

Which 90% of the time it is open field fighting.

And PvP mini games? So what you're getting different armor in mini games? And with regards to Hunger games it's more or less a 75/25 chance depending on your armor, so that's a reason why the PvP needs to be redone.

Not exactly I have killed a couple of people who have had iron armor and swords while I only had leather armor and a stone sword and also have been killed with iron armor. You can't just say there is always a 75/25 or 50/50 chance of winning a fight depending on your armor.

To be honest there's no much skill involved in the actual combat, all yoy have to do it click and move. The only advantage is if you have a good computer, nice keyboard and mouse.

Potions also are an advantage in combat, a little overpowered somtimes, but that's the point, they are able to alter the game.

They should make it so the blocking actually works and doesn't just mess with your damage.
