    'Sup trackers!

    We've now officially been playing the BETA-map for over a week! Time really does fly by doesn't it? I'd like to start this thread off by thanking you for actively playing the map and submitting all the bugs you can find. I know that there's been a lot of them, but that's to be expected when you have four and a half years of game-updates put onto the server at once.

    We've been listening a lot to your feedback and have listened to the polls made in the McPvP Community Discord and here's a list of all the new changes:
    -XP Bottles have been disabled/removed.
    -You can now apply mending to your items again.
    -You can no longer breed villagers.
    -You can no longer use iron trackers in the nether (if you have an existing tracker in the nether, please DM me on discord (Leon#9397) and I'll get it moved into the overworld).
    -Youtuber mode (/yt) now hides your tracker coordinates when you do /track
    -Bug fixes, for a full list, join the discord.

    New trackers

    We're proud to introduce three new types of trackers:
    Centre block: Crying Obsidian
    Extension block: Blackstone
    Ending block: Basalt
    Tracks: 50 blocks per arm-extension

    Extension block: Crying Obsidian
    Ending block: Gold Block
    Tracks:
    15 blocks per arm-extension

    Conclusion

    We're always open to feedback, so please let us know what you think about these changes!

    With utmost respect, who in their right mind thought disabling iron trackers in the nether was a good idea? That's literally pointless to limit building something there with no real issue in the first place. And not breeding villagers? This is supposed to be a heavily vanilla server, not a hardcore pvp server. Disabling that mechanics screws so much up. Pillager farms aren't as useful anymore, trading isn't really worth it, and you're just forcing us to grind xp for days on end to get gear to PVP. That and removing XP bottling will make fights far less attractive. Absolute lunacy.

    Tell me 1 reason why iron trackers in nether weren't too op and game breaking



    There are reasons for all these game breaking nerfs except I don't know why they added more trackers.

    How are iron trackers in the nether op at all? It's no different if I built an obby tracker there or made an iron tracker in the overworld. Not game breaking at all. It only cuts back building time which is hardly relevant.

    See someone within 500 and clear tracker before he comes there, not op?

    With the design I use I can clear it in under 5 mins either way if I need to. I dont see the problem with people moving stuff if they're able to track someone coming for them. If its obby they'll clear the ores and hopefully kill them if they try mining the obsidian. It doesnt make a difference at all

    Quite a good reason to disable nether tracking altogether. Tracking was supposed to be high risk, hence why it was not possible to make them in nether. When only able to make them in OW, you can nether travel, and just magically appear there, giving them no time to react. Aka, it is able to be countered.

    The 2nd one is the largest range we offer. Crying obsidian isn't particularly hard to get, just requires gold. It offers new strategies for tracking and new capabilities.

    The third option is something we are trying out. Carno thinks it will add more layers into temptracking potential, and I think he is right. It will be interesting to see what comes of this.
