Wanting my professional opinion of their latest creation, Jamie and FrostBlast wanted me to check it out. I had two choices, build an Eiffel Tower for a contest I'm hosting for my subscribers or check out a possibly awesome new server section. The Eiffel Tower was tempting, but I decided that I could use a break from the building and decide to test my skills to their fullest. Was I in for a surprise when I went here. Everything I knew about Minecraft went out the window and it was exciting trying to survive the first night.
I teamed up with Pookie200 and together we managed to make a small home and find our first diamonds. We died, got trapped in a cave, died some more, found a dungeon, and some other exciting stuff. The best part about this new challenge is the concept. Stone picks will no longer break stone, forcing you to find iron straight off. Think it's easy? Took me a while to find the first few bits because I kept getting cave-ins in every cave I came by. Charged creepers also make my list of things I like but they also go on my I HATE THIS! list. When I saw it, I attacked it and backed away thinking I'd be fine.
Nope. Death was painful beyond imagining. Luckily, there was a /back, so it wasn't too bad.
Now, some suggestions, as a player and not a reviewer. I have seen many griefing servers die out because of all the destruction. This particular server discourages it thanks to the new physics, but you are free to do so. However, my main point is people will be hoarding ores now like madmen. I would like to see a new command for Super Citizens or at least donators where you can refresh a single chunk per day. This will ensure that the world will still have ores available, but not in super large amounts, just enough to keep the server going just a bit longer. It doesn't even have to be a command, it could just be a random world event, but I'm not sure how that would work :/. You could also make a new group of players called Terraformers that can choose a couple of chunks to refresh, that way it could have a random element to it.
Now, if you will excuse me...I'm going back to establish myself as a pvper.
