I play on a server in which there is hardcore pvp(No protection,no lwc/things like that,grifing allowed ,tnt allowed).
Can i get tips and tricks of how to fight with other players.(Like pour lava in front of them while fighting)
I'll be making a thread later today on how to be boss at pvp (but mods will probably lock it because they hate fun and theives)
My best suggestion: Get diamond sword asap. You won't be able to take on full diamond foes just yet, but you can fend for yourself quite well.
Also when fighting RAPIDLY click. More swings means more hits.
:SSSS:I'm a stalker in pvp, most of the time, I follow my opponent (using a mob detector mod.)
and when they arn't looking, I get the drop on them. most of the time in pvp, you want an enchanted weapon, I suggest a bow, that way I can hit them multiple times before they are close, and even cause them to flee. (note: NEVER RUN AWAY FROM AN ARCHER...EVER.) The reason I do this is because combat in minecraft is basicly a "bigger stick contest." and when you are detected, that cuts your stick in half, no matter the size. using this technique, I can eliminate players in full diamond. like a ninja! :Flint and Steel: <-- this helps as a fallback tool.
Use the element of your surprise. Sneak up to people and get a few critical hits to help give you an advantage. If you feel like killing someone that trust you, you can always just talk to them like you are about to trade and then switch to a sword and get the first swing. Never retreat. Try to back them into a corner. Jump and hit from above. You can always snipe with bows. Many ways but you should always keep hidden or get the advantage first.
