In this thread i will be detailing how i believe PVP could be improved through the use of killstreaks. Upon killing a player in SMP you would earn one "killstreak point". These are redeemable at any time by pressing a button on your keyboard, which will bring up a GUI allowing you to use them.
(Haven't decided what button yet)
1 Kill- Invulnerability for 3 seconds
2 Kills- Invulnerability for 8 seconds
3 Kills- Any armour you are wearing and any weapon you are holding is enchanted to the maximum possible level for 1 minute
4 Kills- Invulnerability for 12 seconds
5 Kills- Minimap showing all enemy player coords for 10 minutes
6 Kills- Regen II + Fire Resist Potion II + Strength Potion + Speed Poition for 10 minutes
7 Kills- Invulnerability for 20 seconds, invisibility for 1 minute
8 Kills- Minimap for one hour
9 Kills- Minimap for an hour + the 6 kill streak
10 Kills- Lightning strike dealing 10 full hearts of damage to any player/mob
11 Kills- Streaks 9+7
12 Kills- Invulnerability for 50 seconds, Invisibility for 5 minutes, Night vision toggalable for 30 minutes + Streak 10 + Minimap for 1 hour
15 Kills- Invulnerability for 2 minutes, Invisiblity for 10 minutes + streak 9
20 Kills- 5x Streak 10
25 Kills- 10x Streak 10
30 Kills- Summon charged creeper horde to any coord on the map (horde=30 of them)(they will NOT despawn)
40 Kills- Streak 30 +Streak 25 + Streak 15
50 Kills- 50x lightning strike on any player + minimap for 12 hours +invulnerability for 15 minutes + Invisibility for 2 hours + Streak 6 + Streak 30
Any thoughts on how this could be implemented/improved? Let me know in the thread.
This doesn't make PVP better, it just unbalances it even worse. There was a huge suggestion regarding improvements to PVP around a couple months ago, I'll see if I can dig it up...
And this kids, is a prime example of how hostile the inhabitants of the minecraft forum can be. So remember, don't go sticking your hands in the suggestion forums, or you might get your hand bitten off!
