Hello Brawlers,

Today we held a small Build Competition. It turned out successfully and I believe that everyone who participated had a fun time buildin'. We will definitely continue to host these type of building competitions in the future.

Previously we have held build competitions on Creative (which we will continue to), but this time around we tried to host it on Build. The differences are that this type of competition...
  • Is not announced on the forums.
  • Is fast-paced. It lasts around an hour, compared to Creative where it lasts during a week.
  • Results are revealed quick.
We would like to know what you thought of the competition. What could have been executed better?

But anyways, back to the competition itself. The theme was Campsite. The task was to build a campsite suited for a family, and you had just twenty minutes to complete your build. There were at most 34 players attending the competition, but not everyone participated. After twenty minutes of intense building we finally had a result:

1st: @Lucy04082016 - One month of Build ELITE.
[​IMG]
2nd: @Zirrk & @Khi_YT - 3 extra maps
[​IMG]
3rd: @Daniellll - 1 extra map

Congratulations to you! This will not be our last Build competition, so follow our Twitter to find out when the next event is.

Thanks,

Hello Brawlers,

We are proud to announce our newest server, Raid! The server is now up and can be accessed over the hub or through the IP raid.mcpvp.com. Hop on and get started!


Raid is replacing Survival PvP and it has a bunch of amazing new features as well as some changes in comparison to Survival PvP:
  • To reduce lag and increase the performance, the server was recoded from scratch.
  • A new and custom spawn and spawn area, with several buildings scattered around the spawn, underground areas to explore and parkours to complete. Credits to @AndyinaBEARsuit and @Fawely
  • Mob stacking is back! Mobs spawned in by a spawner will now stack if they are within 5 blocks of eachother. The mobs keep their specific health.
  • The shop was reworked and you can now also sell enchanted books and splash potions!
  • The overworld border radius was reduced to 10,000 blocks, the nether border radius to 5,000 blocks.
  • Teams now have more ranks, more features and you can even customize the team ranks with permissions.
  • The server is tracking all mined ores now. This will not only help us to catch XRayers faster, you can also see on your scoreboard how many ores you mined in total!
  • ... and many other changes!
For those players who are new to Hardcore Survival servers, here is a short list of Raid's features:
  • The ability to track other players by building trackers
  • A shop to sell any kind of item to other players
  • Mob stacking to simplify experience farms and reduce lag
  • A custom spawn with protection to provide an environment for players to meet and prepare for PvP
  • The ability to capture mobs with eggs and levels
Learn more about the plugins here. (Wiki will be updated soon)

If you encounter any bugs while playing, please report them here so we can fix them soon. We hope you have a great time on Raid!

Brawl Staff Team
Hello Brawlers,

This morning one of our Moderator's accounts were compromised. The person then abused the staff permissions on these accounts: Players were falsely banned in-game, inappropriate content posted on the forums, and various threads were moved, merged and unapproved.

There are no security concerns or anything of the sort, just some inconveniences that we are dealing with. Even though this happened because poor security on the staff members part, we are taking measures to prevent something like this from happening again.

Everyone who was falsely banned has been pardoned. In order to recover the forums, we had to roll them back 2 days. Unfortunately, this means anything that was posted within the last 2 days is gone. We will have a link to the previous version of the forums for you to grab any important content in order to re-post it.

EDIT: You can grab lost posts/threads/whatever from: http://inventorydeluxesales.in/forums/

This thread will be updated if we there is any further information.

Update 8/12/2016:
Another Moderator's in-game and Slack account got compromised. The rank was removed and the Slack account disabled, due to the fast reaction of the staff team the damage seems to be rather small. All false bans were deleted.

Thank you,
Brawl Staff Team
Hello Brawlers,

Today we are here to announce an event for all PvP based servers: a video competition! You often get stunning kills on many different Brawl servers by using guns, swords or bows; now you have the chance to win a prize by recording and submitting them!

To enter the competition, just get one or more kills on one of Brawl servers in an outstanding way and record it. Proceed by uploading the clip on YouTube and submit it here.

Only single clips are accepted, no montages. It is also preferred if the clips are unedited as the focus of the competition is on gameplay and not editing. If you want to make multiple submissions, upload and submit them separately. Creative and MinecraftBuild are excluded from the options for submissions because they aren't competitive. The deadline for submissions is Sunday, August 21st at 6 PM UTC.

The best 10 clips will be selected and then it is the turn of the community: We will post a thread where you can vote for your favourite of the 10 clips and the results of the voting will determine the ranking!

Based on the ranking the winners will receive the following prizes:
1st - 3rd: 30 days global ELITE
4th - 10th: 7 days global ELITE

We look forward to all the submissions, get killing!

Featured Brawler
This month's featured Brawl has over two days of in-game time on HG along with almost 150 forum threads packed with bug reports, suggestions, and feedback, and is an active member of our Wiki/Media team. We are proud to announce @Mattyz_ as this month's featured Brawler! We had the opportunity to have a short interview with him, which you can read below.

[​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Q: How did you find Brawl?
[​IMG] A: I came to know about Brawl when MCPVP shut down, so I guess I'll tell you how I got to know about MCPVP. My first experience with MCPVP was a CTF game. My friend had introduced me to CTF, and I liked it so much, I bought an account just to play on CTF. At that time, I did not know about MCPVP yet. Later on, I was searching for Survival Games servers, and HG popped out, so I joined it. At that time, I did not know about soup or kits yet. About half a year later, I saw a YouTube video, where soup healed health, and blocks could be broken. This was very similar to the server I was playing on, and so I tried to eat soup. It did heal health. From then on, I started to be more involved in the community, watching the forums, attempting to get moderator, and so on. Eventually, MCPVP shut down, and Brawl bought over HG. When that happened, I decided to play a more active role in helping Brawl, and so
here I am today!

[​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Q: What is your favorite gamemode on Brawl?
[​IMG] A:
HG is my favorite gamemode by far, but I don't mind CTF or Party.

[​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Q: Who do you look up to the most on Brawl?
[​IMG] A:
I look up to quite a lot of people. I'm going to list them all: BlueGuyARed, Viva, chickenputty, Lord_Roke, Totom3, NomNuggetNom, Turmac, MrWaffleman, TheMafias, SoCool21, Uraniumyyy, Stormneo, Gohabsgo, Noobified, jarboyp. No
t forgetting my wiki team and media team members!

[​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Q: What would you do if you were given admin for a day, why?
[​IMG] A:
If I were given admin for a day, I'll promote everyone to admin too! Jokes aside, I'll do my best to improve HG, cause at the moment it's not in the best state. Return some of the retired kits to the shop like Magma and Thermo, and retire some kits like Spy and Ghost. I would probably implement some more purchasable cosmetics, like the ability to use the Kangaroo rocket and Grappler hook in spawn. I would also implement lifetime ranks for a specific server, at about 1/3 the price of the server-wide lifetime ranks, cause these changes could encourage people to spend money on a rank. I might also add FpsHG back to Brawl, and work on a HCF server, cause new servers could boost player counts. I'll also conduct ban waves, where every hacker report is investigated and if they're guilty, I'll ban them.

[​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Q: What has been your favorite moment on Brawl so far?
[​IMG] A:
My favorite moment is probably the HG Halloween tournament, where I got 3rd place, the best I've ever done. One really memorable moment for me was the Tribute Tournament. (I think this is what it was called) I tried to re-log at the start, but because the server was so laggy it didn't register me as a part of the game, so I could not join back. I then asked Totom3 to help me get back in, and he promoted me to JMod so I could get in. Although I died within 5 minutes, it is still one of my most memorable moments.


[​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Q: What is your favorite HG kit, and why?
[​IMG] A:
I've got quite a few kits I enjoy playing. Anchor is one of them, as I can't combo too well but I can refill and recraft decently, so I'll abuse my strengths to kill people. Souper is another, as the ability to heal 4.5 hearts from one soup gives me more time to try and combo the other person before needing to refill. Stomper too, jumping down on unsuspecting people is so fun. Endermage, cause you can (abuse) use the portal to get 5 seconds of invincibility. Kangaroo is the last of them. Anti-fall, anti-tower, and also a chasing kit is really good. Chasing people is what I like most about this kit. If I have to choose among the five, I'll pick Kangaroo.

[​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Q: What is an interesting fact about you?
[​IMG] A:
In terms of HG, one thing that makes me different is that I like to fight teams. Taking out a 2v1, 3v1, or even a 5v1 is what I want most when I have full iron, and a stack of recrafts. Offline, an interesting fact about me is that I'm able to manage many responsibilities at the same time, and probably something unique, I enjoy it. I'm able to juggle studies, sports commitments, media and wiki team, church responsibilities and planning for camps at the same time. Sounds pretty boring having to do a lot of things, but to be honest, I enjoy the responsibilities. I feel like life is quite boring if there's nothing to do but play HG and FIFA all day.

[​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Q: What is your favorite thing to do off of the computer?
[​IMG] A:
I'm a school athlete, training for the Long Jump event in Track and Field. My personal best at the moment is 5.5m, quite bad, but I'm working hard to break 7m in two years time. On top of this, I love playing football, or soccer. I take pride in being able to perform good first touches, and able to finish decently. I also love hanging out with friends (surprisingly, I do have a social life), watching movies, barbecues, whatever. I can also play the piano decently.

Trivia Question
Last month's question was: Who was the first PLAYER (Not staff at the time) to join the forums?
The answer was Wolfninja101980 (profile here) and the first person to correctly guess that was @Snail_5_ , he will earn a forum trophy.

This month's question is: Who has written the longest staff application as of 7/31/16 (words)?
The answer will be revealed along with the winner in the next edition of The Brawl News.

Howdy,

This Saturday (7/29/16) we hosted two mini-events on our HG servers. It seems like overall the event was fun for most, and we are happy to keep hosting them.

The difference between this mini event and the other HG events are as follows
  • We didn't announce this on the forums
  • No custom build
  • Very little preparation (we usually give at least 3 days if not more)
  • Nothing planned and set out in stone, just the time and the server IP.
First of all, we'd like to know what those of you attended thought, do you want to see more events like this? Why? Why not?

Anyways, onto the summary portion of the events. We held two events, one being a KOTH and the other a regular HG game. The KOTH ended almost as soon as it started, with only 2 people able to capture the hill for longer than a second.

1st: @Zeroma - 1 month of global elite
2nd: @c_master1999 - 1 free kit
3rd: @Sycicys - 1 free kit

For the second event, the regular HG round, we reached up to 75 players and the game lasted for over an hour. Here are the prize winners:

1st: @ethanedgar - 1 month of global elite
2nd: @Uraniumyyy - 1 free kit
3rd @Eil - 1 free kit

We hope to do more events like this in the future, so follow our Twitter to find out when the next event is.

Thanks,
Brawl Staff Team
