A big update is in progress. Please make sure to run this command if you're not on 1.14:/scoreboard players set $oldmethod$ wop.extend 1

You want the worse, old PvP back? Worry no more, this datapack will fulfill your wishes! Just drop your tools after the installation once in order to update them and enjoy your eZ, no-skill version of PvP!

Works with all enchantments and tools, axes have been nerfed (lower damage) and golden swords have been buffed (high blocking advantage).

Minecraft 1.16: Go to my website and click on "worseoldpvp" and then again on the title or the picture, to be forwarded to the download page for versions from 1.13 to 1.16. Alternatively you can download the whole repository through GitHub if the downloader is not working.


Optional
Lags

Set $extend$ in wop.extend higher, the more the server is lagging (5 is default): /scoreboard players set $extend$ wop.extend 5
Modes

0: sword-blocking & no-cooldown
1: sword-blocking & cooldown
2: no-sword-blocking & no-cooldown

Modes can be changed individually by changing ones wop.mode score from 0 to 2 (0 is default):/scoreboard players set <player> wop.mode 0Or globally by using one of the mode functions from 0 to 2 (0 is default):
/function worseoldpvp:mode/0
Customization

If you want to be able to block while not sneaking set $mustsneak$ in wop.extend to 0 (1 is default):
/scoreboard players set $mustsneak$ wop.extend 0Beaware that the movement penalty is realized through slowness, meaning that the FOV will drastically reduce while blocking. To get rid of this, download Optifine and disable "Dynamic FOV".

If you want to have player effects rather than item attributes set $attribute$ in wop.extend to 0 (1 is default):
/scoreboard players set $attribute$ wop.extend 1
Alternative Method (recommended for Bukkit powered servers and for 1.13 and 1.15 usage) (soon to be removed)

This is the alternative/old method developed in 1.13 and without modifying player data, use it by setting $oldmethod$ in wop.extend to 1 (1 is default): /scoreboard players set $oldmethod$ wop.extend 1
  • tools need to be dropped out in order to update them
  • there are 2 swords visually while blocking in third person
  • zooming from slowness effects/attributes

Additions (new method only):

  • Added $mustsneak$ and $attribute$ options
  • $mustsneak$ can be set to 1 or 0 in wop.extend to enable/disable sneak requirements for blocking
  • $attribute$ can be turned on by setting it to 1 in wop.extend and after that it will use item attributes instead of player effects
Changes:
  • $oldmethod$ has now been disabled by default, the new default is the new method

  • ressourcepack size has been reduced

The update is finished and currently only available on my GitHub repository. Will bring it to Planetminecraft in about a week.
edit: I'm lazy, therefore my advice is to download it from GitHub

Yes it is an available option. Use:

Move the "worseoldpvp Datapack.zip" into your "datapacks" folder of your world save file located in C:\Users\<User>\AppData\Roaming\.minecraft\saves\<world name>\datapacks
Either drop the tool once so the datapack can update it or if you are using the new method damage it once so it gets a tag entry which enables the datapack to modify the nbt of the item.


Its straight forward and it should work. Tested it just now. You might need to type in /reload
Here's a link to my Installation guide.

Now you can also use the new method and block without having to sneak. Use this command to toggle this feature on, but make sure that old method is turned off before:

Turn off old method:
/scoreboard players set $oldmethod$ wop.extend 0Turn off sneak requirement:
/scoreboard players set $mustsneak$ wop.extend 0

The problem is that right clicking isn't a speed penalty in itself. You could just turn on the oldmethod (should be turned on by default), which is working by just right clicking. The disadvantage is that the FOV is decreased drastically while blocking (turning off dynamic FOV in Optifine is recommended).
/scoreboard players set $oldmethod$ wop.extend 1

Are you talking about the whole datapack or the alternative new method (which is off by default)?
As far as I know, Spigot servers are not very compatible with the alternative new method.
If you meant the whole datapack, it worked for me, I couldn't reproduce.

Thanks to the new update just uninstalling it using the uninstall-feature will also revert back the tools. (click the red exclamation mark in chat which appears when /reload ing in order to uninstall correctly, the tools will have to be updated either by throwing them out or selecting them in the hotbar)

Install it again and change the mode to mode 1 by using /function worseoldpvp:mode/1now just update the tools by dropping them out. In mode 1, you can sword-block, but the cooldown is present. If the datapack is uninstalled after that, the tool will have cooldown again and sword-blocking wouldn't be possible anymore.

I was able to craft all kinds of shovels in your world, all datapacks you have installed do not interfere with crafting and I couldn't find any traces left by worseoldpvp. This could either mean that you have uninstalled it through the provided uninstaller-function and that all modified tools have already been used up/removed or it could mean that my datapack has never even been installed in this world.

Have you sent the correct world file?

I did send the correct world file. I just deleted the file straight from the folder. I was only unable to craft any shovels in the world after I uninstalled it. It might have been something different but I don't know what else. I tried enabling and disabling the vanilla datapack but that didn't work. I can craft shovels in other worlds so my minecraft isn't corrupt. I tried making a copy of the world and using that but that didn't work.

What can I say. It worked for me and I couldn't find anything suspicious either.



I know that there is actually another datapack implementing 1.8 pvp and it does that by using shovels as an utility tool and therefore crafting it has been disabled. But I couldn't see it in your world file either and I have nothing to do with this other datapack anyways.

So, the sword blocking isn't working at all, I've set it to only sword blocking, and regular no skill 1.8 pvp, it still didn't work. Can you fix this or is this an issue on my end, this has happened on two servers so far, I also have the resource pack installed.

If you have put the datapack into this path C:\Users\<User>\AppData\Roaming\.minecraft\saves\<world name>\datapacksand reloaded the world/server, it should automatically work. Have you tried to use
/datapack list and see if worseoldpvp is being listed or did you see the "loaded"-message?

(I just saw that I have written a wrong path into the readme.txt. It should say ".minecraft/saves/<world>/datapacks")

no skill version of pvp? (Sorry, i just HAVE to say something) Now i get u dont like 1.8 pvp (it's very obvious)
but you have to admit, 1.8 pvp IS FULLY SKILL. 1.9 pvp makes pvp "fair" it doesn't make it skill based, it makes it easy (except the fact that there are cooldowns). Have you ever tried to fight a horde of zombies in 1.9+? Sword swiping makes it TOO EASY, hitting multiple things at once, the cooldown doesn't even matter!
Now, take that same scenario, but in 1.8. MUCH MORE SKILL BASED. You ACTUALLY have to hit each individual zombie, making pvp (and/or pve) ACTUALLY FUN AND CHALLENGING!

now i know you may look at this comment and feel discouraged but besides my whole rant about 1.8 not being "too easy, and not hard enough", i actually like the datapack, so thanks.

Nah dude, feel free to express your opinion!
Ranting about 1.9 has become a trend and (almost) everyone is following it. So I've decided to name my datapack provocatively. I'm also more into strategic play and in 1.9 fights are being thought out rather than rushed in. I like 1.8 combat when it comes to fast-paced server minigames though. Both systems have their advantages.

I did already. Sorry for replying that late, but I'm not paying any attention to Planet Minecraft, as it took this datapack roughly 3 months to be greenlit.

You can always download the latest version found in the mirror. There you can find the 1.14 version of the datapack.

(just click on the above link and click on the title "worseoldpvp" on Github to be redirected to its download link, there you will receive the latest version if DownGit isn't down)
