You speak as if hackers have never appeared in the game up until 1.9. They ALWAYS have, and have bypassed all kinds of mechanics and even used ones against mini-games or games such as PvP, such as a double jump, aura kill, or flying in general, and this was way before 1.8. All in all, for each update, and for every game excluding Minecraft, hackers will always play unfairly and abuse the system. Don't act like it's such a surprise.
No no no, choke-point. xD not check point. Like somewhere you can get an advantage over the people to kill them. Anyways, did you not read my other post? I clearly said that attack speeds will be hacked like every other hack. ._. i'm not new to hackers, I play on servers regularly with loads of them. Sorry if it sounded like it was a surprise to me, it's not. I'm just stating that introducing the attack speed will not cancel out spam clicking because not only will hackers abuse it and remove it, but people will still spam click for the fun of it.
And yes, you're right. Part of the skill system in the old people was clicking, not jitterclicking. Not everyone can jitter click. And how do you suppose you're going to hit people? just click once or twice? No, clicking fast is part of the PVP that actually allows you to attack.
We're not talking about minigames here, since those are much better in 1.8 and will be in 1.9. Other games like FFA arenas, or Survival Games, is what I'm talking about. Minigames usually have a twist to them that others don't, such as power ups, or special classes, etc...
Ugh. It depends on skill, haven't I already said this? You can fight a 2 team with full iron head on and most likely lose...BUT! Depending on their skill you could win. For instance, I've killed a 2 of team by thinking about what I was doing before I tried to fight them. I didn't just rush in, I split them up and then killed one while the other was too far away to help. I then killed the other after.
See? It does NOT matter about armor or weapons, it's about strategy and actually thinking before you go barging in. I would've died before I fought them if I didn't split them up.
Also, since you don't seem to understand what i mean by splitting them up, let me explain:
You're getting chase by 2 guys, so, you try to take a shortcut. The other teamate decides he will try to cut you off. While he's away, you attack the one behind you, kill him, and then run to regen to full health to kill the other guy.
this is my last post here, I could go on but I know the argument will keep going. Long story short, I will not play 1.9 PVP because it adds new issues to the current ones, and does not fit most pvp game types. PEACE
