    Fights are going to be so much longer, and shields are going to so OP. Tbh, I've done no 1.9 pvp, so I can't really say whether I prefer 1.8 or 1.9

    I'm going to be the one to say that I enjoy 1.9, not because of the pvp aspects or anything but because of some of the other items they've added.

    New block types? Yep. Gliding wings? Yes. Improved End? Yes. New arrow types? Yeeeessss (I'm such a bow junkie). I can't wait for 1.9 to be totally implemented.

    Shields. Much better with the hit speeds in 1.9 . Yes you can't block hit like in previous versions, but if you use your shield well you can make it so that you deal a lot of damage, and barely take any in return

    I agree, 1.9 added a lot of cool stuff and pvp will be a lot different than 1.8, which will take a while to get used to. My hope was that they make a 1.9 pvp server and leave one at 1.8 so people can enjoy both versions on the same server :). Like a 1.9 eg lobby and a 1.8 eg lobby so people can play on which ever one they prefer

    Tried pvping in 1.9, probably never going to do it again. 1.9 ruined classic pvp in my opinion.

    It called a shield and yes u can block with it me and a friend battled it out works awesome. It's different cause u can't just spam the sword button u will do less damage makes u actually use alittle strategy when pvping I like it.

    If you like slow... long winded fights... 1.8 pvp needs more strats imo... strafing correctly takes year to perfect... now they kinda destroyed it :-P

    The thing i think is better in 1.9 is the different kinds of arrows but the sword cooldown is shit.

    I think this was done so that fights are based more on skill rather than who has the better ping and fps

    That's partially true... but the cooldown is pretty long... you'll have to hit them once then run, then hit them once then run... not gonna get you anywhere if is gapple or pot pvp

    I really don't think the cool down is that long it is like 1.5 secs per swing or something to that affect Etho labs did a YouTube vid on it. It was very interesting results. And if u haste pot it does improve cool down time just so u know. I always thought sword blocking was bs. As that is something u wouldn't do in real life. Shields are for blocking and I feel it was a good improvement to the game.

    I partially agree. I play KitPvP, in KitPvP people run and some people have a lot of gapples. This is bad for KitPvP as you will have time to gap and run when you are in a fight, atm i carry like 5 stacks of gaps on me because i have way to many, with the cooldown you have time to run away and gap which defeats the purpose of this being more skilled pvp. It may come down to armor but its gonna be pretty easy to escape. Just my thoughts on how this will affect kitpvp as kitpvp is my home.

    Just gonna put this out there we will update to a full 1.9 at some points, Have no fear we can still have the 1.8 style of pvp in servers such as KitPvP just because there are new features does not mean they can not be disabled! I personally see a lot of good things in 1.9 it will be an amazing update for things like survival and a lot of other PvE based things also things like Creative will be able to benefit from the new blocks.

    Honestly I did not like 1.9 pvp at first, but after seeing this video it kind of got me thinking a new update of kitpvp can turn into something like this.


    It takes a while for the pvp part to start so skip ahead a little bit.

    I totally agree there will be lots of new thing once updated. I never said 1.8 pvp was bad just that 1.9 pvp evens out the field. Then it is more about skill instead of who can click block sword is all I am saying. I am totally stoked to see update and reset of survival. I can't wait to see the polls for survival I will be adding my thoughts. I play lucky blocks super fun and have been on facs lately. I think the servers are all great. I always look forward to getting on and seeing all my sc friends.

    For lucky block maybe shields could come from lucky blocks?

    Yea that was what I was thinking, we could take advantage of the shields and cool arrows. Maybe even do something with the elytra
