Sainteven's modest proposal - feedback please

Post  Sainteven on 5/19/2011, 12:18 pm

This is a plan i would like to see become reality but i would like to get the forums thoughts to know if it would have any hope of success.
incoming wall of text

Firstly a new map would be made, accessible only through portals. This map would be relatively small, have a separate inventory, and would not allow for spawning items. the only tools and items you can use would be those you make or buy on this map. tnt would be active possibly. PvP WOULD be on. that is important.

Everyone on this new map would be required to chose one of two factions, for this example lets call them RED and BLU. A member of the BLU faction could only build their houses on BLU controlled land. and BLU buildings built on RED lands would be fair game for griefing and robbing. Each Faction would have an adminium fort at opposite ends of the map surrounded by lands the other faction can never take.

Scattered throughout the land between the two fortresses would be large adminium towers. If a group of BLU players fought to one of these towers climbed past its npc defenders and mounted a Blue flag (blue cloth) on top of the tower, all the land with a set distance from the tower would become BLU owned land and Blue players could build on it as they see fit. To help in guarding these towers, Skeleton defenders could be spawned within the tower, traps could be made along with moats, walls, whatever would help in defending it. In this way the two factions could fight for control of all the territory between their respective fortresses. Small towns could pop up between them only to be wiped out and burned when the enemy forces took the land. All buildings would have to be marked with blue or red cloth so it was evident which side it belonged to.

There could be no spies or traitors or other deceit. wolves would be allowed and encouraged as they could turn the tide of any battle. Players would have to be marked by their side as well. perhaps by armor or skins. A rank system of sorts may be added as well if i think of something good. such as being able to capture the fortresses if you can kill the enemy leader inside. also having each team have a a team of tacticians controlling the troops would be cool. some towers would guard important landmarks such as a bridge or mountain with strategic significance. these would be especially important

I feel this would add some much needed pvp and a place to grief to your hearts content while being fun for all involve. Fighting and strategy would play important roles and would be a good change of pace from endless building. with the coming update maps would play an important role in allowing you to plan your assaults and see the status of the battlefield. minecraft is at heart, a fantasy adventure game, and i feel it is time we take advantage of that.

edit: i realize this is a huge thing so much of it would have to be regulated by the players themselves such as no spawning items and such. what it boils down to is, if you like the idea and don't want to ruin it for everyone, don't be an ass and just follow the rules. perhaps some players would get the imaginary rank of pvp mod to watch for cheating and help out the staff (me) in making this idea work.

tl:dr: just read it asshole

I really like and support this idea.

The one thing I've liked and felt was a great thing on this server was the variety of mods it has. This alone would return the aspect of pvp to the game and in a constructive manner and or objective vs running around killing people randomly.

This would be one more thing that would add to the variety of the oasis server and what makes it great.

I 100% support this idea. I've been pushing for a day each month where we could go Vanilla, but this sounds better.

I LOVE THIS IDEA however some sort of system would have to be set to make sure the teams are even and fair.

How about a drafting type of thing? Leaders could swap members if they wanted... Although that would be a problematic system... Hmm....

i think teams should be chosen based on the factions. make the factions something the players care about (miners vs builders, city vs city, sainteven vs ariley) so players gravitate towards a team they care about and want to play for

That would work, I guess favoritism would be encouraged? :P
