    Hey everyone, i know most of you probably don't know me as this is my first forum post. I'm LegitSpliffs and I used to be an EU mod on Hunger Games before brawl bought it. I hadn't played Hunger Games in a year or so till a few weeks ago so I'm quite out of touch with what's been going on with the server, but from an ex-players perspective HG has really gone down hill. Most of the servers only get filled up with 1-3 players, which makes HG less enjoyable and less of a challenge than it used to be with 40-50 players. Obviously i know Brawl isn't to blame for the fact HG has died out so much now, but I really hope that if everyone that likes HG could get behind an HG revival that HG could be restored to it's potential. So I made this forum post for people to suggest things they think will make Hunger Games better, I'll start of by saying a few more obvious basics, but I really want to hear other peoples opinions.

    1. New Kits, adding new kits could interest players to try out HG, but what's even more important than adding new kits is finding a way for players who can't afford to donate for example if you signed up to the forums and then shared the website on Facebook, they would be rewarded a powerful kit, for life, That would let there be a way of trying new kits without having to donate. I also think kit rotations should be more common.

    2. HG Youtubers, In the past HG videos were some of the most popular videos in the Minecraft PvP Community, which attracted thousands of players daily, popular HG youtubers like BadBoyHalo, Gayzmcgee and Stonesworders, Sinn0h and MomoHD. Now for obvious reasons i know a lot of old HG youtubers won't come back, but i think if some older youtubers were reached out to by Brawl staff they could defiantly find some youtubers who would be happy to continue doing HG videos, especially if there were more players, and with more youtubers come more players, it's sort of a win-win.

    Anyway I'd really enjoy to be involved in a HG revival, and i have a lot more suggestions if anyone is interested. So yeah. feel free to comment your opinions.

    do you fall out of the sky at the beginning and then loot for chests across a large map in search for weapons armor food ammo and the essential goods to survive and then the last one standing wins the game

    does it have that

    HG is absolutely nothing like fpsHG, at all. Its like saying "If you want a revival of 'skywars', add the walls".

    We can't add more kits, there's way too many in the first place. There's 120 kits currently, and most of them are bad and never get used. We should focus on reworking/removing the bad (and the very OP) kits first before adding any more. However, this will require dev time that we do not have at the moment unfortunately.

    BadBoyHalo has his own server, he's not going to advertise for us. Gayzmcgee has quit Minecraft and now is an Osu! God or something. Stonesworders hasn't uploaded in 8 months. Sinn0h makes similar videos to Leafy from what I remembered, except he has 61k subs instead of 5 million. And, he hasn't uploaded in 3 months. Momo has removed all his Minecraft videos and only uploads Osu! now.

    Other than that, there's another problem: how are YouTubers going to make good videos when we average 3 players per game? And even if we did get them making videos, old players would come back, compare current HG to the old 120 player game days and not bother playing.

    Also, if Brawl does get the money to pay for advertising, it'd be better to advertise something like Build or Party, which have much better player retention than HG does. At the moment, advertising HG is simply not feasible.

    Go to the link Rhoske sent you for the current ideas for HG's revival. At the moment they seem to be the best ideas we have, but we're open to suggestions and I'd love to hear your thoughts on it all.

    I'm referring to the hunger games gamemode, whether that be fpsHG or the current HG. fpsHG did a lot better than this so I said to replace the current HG with that.

    But the elements of the game are completely different. Apples to oranges

    Why would you need to remove a completely different game to add a new one in?

    Only two elements that are different is one has guns, the other doesn't. The other one is the fact that on one you manage to survive on your own and fpsHG requires you to gain loot from chests. Same concept, whoever's the last standing wins. Traverse a large map with loot you come across, etc.

    Were you even here for fpsHG?

    So the only similarity is that it's Lms wins. If you think that the only difference is guns and chests, then you're really wrong. I don't know what else to say

    You didn't answer my question. Have you ever played fpsHG?

    And can you name other differences between the two that are significant enough to mention?

    From what I heard it's kinda like the survival games with guns which I did play. ( and semi enjoy)

    Can you list more than 2 similarities that are worth mentioning?

    -Soup pvp
    -You can break blocks
    -Trapping
    - Towering
    -A lot more strategy
    -the HG kits provide a huge difference in gameplay
    https://www.brawl.com/threads/38879/

    I recommend checking out the guide listed. Besides the Lms aspect (which is a common theme in alot of games) and the other you listed 'traversing the map finding loot' well you don't do that in HG necessarily, you can choose to. They really aren't alike at all!

    - While HG has Soup PvP, so did fpsHG, just a different item which was retextured.
    - Already said this was one of the major differences. One of them you find stuff in chests, the other one you make them yourself.
    - Almost every fpsHG map had traps in it (which were pre-made, but like I said one of them you find stuff the other one you make them).
    - fpsHG you climb a pre-made tower, HG you build it.
    - How is it a lot more strategy? You've never played fpsHG so this entire argument is just you defending the gamemode you love.

    Similarities.

    - Spawn in and traverse a large map in search for weapons and essentials which will keep you alive
    - Create a team or play solo
    - Kits
    - Last man standing
    - Soup/Health regenerating items
    - Death match (I believe this is in HG)
    - Feast (I believe this is in HG)

    By premade traps, do you meaning getting stuck in a hole/web/something similar? If so then that's not the kind of trapping I'm referring to at all. I'm talking about a player with a goal in mind to trap to victory with his kit.

    Your similarities:
    1. Like I said that's not necessarily the goal for you in the game. You may choose to create traps with kits, or camp in a tower as a viable strategy.
    2.Grasping at straws here, you can play solo or team in every gamemode on the server pretty much.
    3. Again, kits is a basic feature that a ton of servers have.
    4. But is the game revolving around soup pvp fighting? Example a bandage on wild west wouldn't count imo.
    5.yes that's a similarity albeit insignificant as it's rarely used in HG gameplay (only after 50 minutes has passed)
    6. Yes there is a feast

    Edit: skipped last man standing but again, pretty common in a lot of games

    Raid can be replaced by HG because they're too similar!
    -Soup pvp
    -Traverse land looking to kill players
    -Can track players down
    -Can break blocks
    -Have to create your own materials.
    -can be in a team or solo

    See how a game can share aspects but be completely different?

    There is only one real difference and it's that you respawn, but that one difference makes ALL the difference.

    SGG was the retarded public plugin version of FPSHG, FPSHG was Myortyve/Brittan's version which was 10x more fun.

    You asked me to name 2+ similarities, so I did. Your statement saying "other servers have it" is completely irrelevant.
    All the similarities between Raid and HG you listed are significant, but you're just twisting the words. You realize they're both completely different game modes, there is no Last Man Standing element which is required for HG servers.

    Exactly my point! Take one aspect out of a game and it's a whole new ball game!

    Example a switch from soup pvp to guns. Flips the gamemode upside down in much the same way

    Think about it. There's a reason you love fpsHg and I don't. There's a reason I love the Hardcore games and you don't. There's gotta be some significant differences in the game or that would not be the case.
