Well as you can see in the title I need your opinions and answers of this question: Do you think servers without god apples, tnt, op enchantments (protection IV, Sharpness V, etc.) or op potions (Strength II) suck?
I'm a Minecraft PvP player, and I hate servers with that features (almost 99.99% today's minecraft pvp servers.
I haven't found a server with at least 10 players that have god apples nerfed, low enchantments, no explosions or at least obsidian not breakable.
Like kids today only like servers where you join and you have 5 sets of protection X armor, 2 stacks of obby, 4 stacks of tnt, creeper eggs, 30 blocks of diamonds and 10 stacks of god apples. Why is that?
I'm getting bored about Minecraft because the multiplayer fun I like is that way.
Also I've been thinking in opening a pvp server; a real PVP server. Where diamonds are hard to find, you will have to use regeneration and health potions to survive fights. Where you don't XRay a spawner, set up an exp farm and grind 10 sets of Protection IV Unbreaking III sets. Instead you have to mine a lot to find that hard and hidden diamonds, and when you finally get your diamond armour, you will only be able to enchant it to protection II and get your sharpness II sword.
A server where the players that worked harder and are skilled enough will shine, since they won't get slam neither by the older or donnor players with 20 "god" sets and 10 stacks of god apples already. You can join and kill anybody, since you won't be fighting against a player with protection IV with your iron set. There won't be big shops where you can get everything (spawners, ores, valuable stuff). You will have to explore to find them, or buy them from another player.
There won't be players with 50 iron golem spawners grinders.
I could keep talking and listing features, but todays servers/pvp players stick to "OP" servers and I'm afraid of starting a new server and getting 0 players.
I need your opinion. What do you think?

Thank you for reading

I like your idea and i totally agree, minecraft has become something that in my opnion it shouldnt be, its all about your pvp status what your cps is or how many kills you get in minigames ect. It is hard to find servers that are unique and stay true to what minecraft is especially with alot of players> Even though minigmes server are fun once in awhile and its different its annoying how thats kind of normal now and things like singleplayer are left to become nothing. Recently that 2t2b server blew up and i think its great so many people want to play it because its vanilla minecraft yet everyone wants to play it

Thank you for your replies guys. I've been thinking on opening a server like that and you helped me to decide. I will try and see how many players are willing to join this kind of server.

I'm planning on doing it a "survival" with pvp always enabled. So there will be a claiming system but you CAN'T turn off pvp anyways. God apples will be nerfed, so you can use them only every 90 seconds or so. Also str II pots, etc. Shops will be reduced, and won't sell spawners (too op, and there is a risk of someone finding an exploit to get a lot of money easily and buy hundreds of spawners). I'll be thinking about the other features later. What is what I have in mind by now.

PvP has always been like that. It's just nowadays people can pay to get it. They used to have to work for it (Although pay2win is being stopped now by mojang)

Bukkit servers should stop they are toxic and endless. How many times have I seen the same type of server since I started minecraft. If you're making a server then at least make it different from other servers.

Bukkit doesn't make it a bad server in general.
Vanilla and modded servers are bad sometimes too.

Why exactly bukkit servers? You can create an awesome unique server with bukkit.

Unique things can also be done in vanilla.

But that doesn't make Bukkit bad in general.

It doesn't. But people are just too addicted to it, which created an anti vanilla bias. I have a blog about it on my profile. It's the latest one I did.

They are both different. Some like command blocks, Some like plugins.
Both does the same thing, Both have pros and cons.

I prefer command blocks tho. More reliable

Not promoting my server or anything but that is kinda like my server, there isn't op armor right away, just a good set of obi and iron and easy ways to earn money and along with voting. I didn't want people to be like the kids today getting easy stuff. Back in 1.5.X, I had to work for a good faction or work for good items to PvP. I miss CurseCraft. That was a server kids would hate.

Could you send me the IP of your server via PM?
I will be glad of giving it a try.

Same.. I hate that every newbie who joins the server is as the same level as the player who kept playing & working hard for his stuff.

I'm not a PVP fan, but as long as it's executed in a cool way (like as a minigame maybe) and it's 1.9+ combat, I could give it a try.

in my opinion i like the Prop 4 and Sharp 4 because that is in vanilla minecraft. While yes having Prop 2 and Sharp 2 being the highest you can get will lengthen the battle, I would prefer a regular Survival map with PVP always enabled because then you can get attacked at any moment.
