Amazing. Just in amazing. The difficulty is a bit high though, I've only gotten to wave 3 on easy (and i'm decent at mob killing).
But otherwise, ing Amazing. Just tried SP, and will try MP with my bro. Nice use of the command blocks.
Edit: I support anyone who uses mediafire, because frankly, the others suck ;P
I gave it a go and failed after 5-6ish waves, not sure exactly. the zombies (HUNDREDS!!! ) just got around me from all sides and juggled me into the lava, then camped the edge so I couldn't get back out.
and that was with cheating (spawned in about 3 stacks of enchanting bottles when I found myself without a weapon). I don't think this is possible in easy - singleplayer mode.
It doesn't help that the center is pitch black, I can't see well enough to find where the witches and skeletons are in the ever-growing mass of monsters.
the enchanting level --> loot system is fascinating though, I demand to know how you made that work. Is it doable with other resources?
Perhaps you should add a brewing station and the dispenser sometimes drop gunpowder, that way the player can choose which potions he/she wants as splash. Anyway, the only other thing is the spawn issue but players can just /kill at the beginning and it will respawn them in the spawn area, 'til you fix it anyway. Good map and congratulations on getting the front page =)
Umm there's a problem when I press the button that gives me a free wooden sword it doesnt give me the item. I owned wave 1 with my barehands and when I got exp and went to press the button that gives you apples it didn't give me anything and my exp was decreased and I didnt even get the food. Have I done something wrong here?
Sachaverell seems like he was chosen because he has a good voice, and......he has a good voice. But besides that, I don't think he has or had any other contributions on this forum, that I have ever seen.
Okay, first and foremost...
Sacheverell is quite literally the community guy. He's not actually a forum mod or anything, so you should really be expecting him to be working on that. He's a member of the team who creates great community relations. No reason to attack him for that.
Secondly, since I've not personally played this map, I can't vouch for it's good or bad qualities, but clearly Sacheverell enjoyed it when he played it (he always plays and records the maps he features) and as such, decided to feature it. I feel that's fair enough, regardless of the quality of the map.
Thirdly, I just question your use of 'Clean up his act'. He's not done anything wrong! He played a map and enjoyed it, like many others, and since he has the ability, he gave it a nice plug via the front page. What's the harm in that?
Not trying to be confrontational, but I do think you're being a bit hard on Sachaverell here
Ok, obviously this map isn't ready for public release. People, including myself, are having issues with where they spawn (which is already inside the arena), and being in creative mode. Sorry, but I really don't see how this got onto homepage. It's a great idea, yes, but the author clearly didn't take the time to fix these big issues.
Also, whenever I die, My game crashes, I only really have 3 mods installed: Forge, Optifine, and StatusEffectHUD. This is my crash report, can anyone see my problem?

The map is great, if you know how to handle the mobs it is quite easy, the only problem is being knocked into the lava and not having good armour and a regen potion. I would add some minor tweaks to the command blocks, instead of only using @a I would use @a and then a tag which only teleports players/gives players items/clears their inv inside the arena. The difficulty settings are also not server compatible, when you put it on a large server with other stuff because it changes the difficulty and makes all monsters despawn, I would just apply strenght and weakness or nothing to the mobs to set the difficulty. Not saying that the map is bad, I am just saying, that it is not compatible with servers with other stuff on it, works just fine for servers set up only for that purpose.
ok soyou get in the map and your on creative mode. thats the first thing the second thing is that by default its on peaceful. number three there is a hole in the roof that you can fly through (because your on creative mode) and look at all the things and modify them. and also hi to you too i saw your message of gold and netherbrick.
A few more things i would like to say. you could have put more types of mobs in the dispensers but i do like your randomizing unit ive never seen one so big on a custom map by someone else. good job on the map but might want to fix the problems.
