    I wanted to ask you guys, do you prefer 1.8 or 1.9?

    I personally prefer 1.8, despite me being better at 1.9. Here's why:

    • 1.8 is much more fast paced.
    • More people melee in 1.8 instead of bowspamming
    • Rods rods rods rods rods rods (Did I mention rods?)
    • You have to always watch your health because it takes time to regen.
    • 1.8 requires more skill to be honest.

    I prefer 1.8, the only problem is the knockback for me. This knockback isn't normal anymore xD

    I don't mind which one I am on, but I'm starting to get on both clients at least once a day. I like 1.9 way better though.

    I used to be (kinda) good in 1.8 PvP, but since I never played 1.8 when 1.9 came out, I'm bad af now xD

    If I wouldn't be bad in 1.8 PvP, I would still play 1.9. It requires strategies and timing instead of clicking 'til your mouse explodes.

    I prefer 1.9
    I don't find 1.8 to be more fast paced, you deal the same damage over time.
    "1.8 requires more skill?!" Seriously?
    Whatever...
    But yes 1.9 IMHO is overall better for Minecraft. PvP and not.
    Don't kill me and start flames pls

    I like 1.9 better. It actually takes skill. Plus in Eggwars, you don't have to deal with the fist being a weapon. (I have died to a naked person in 1.8 with a fist before. Fists in 1.8 are strong.) I don't know if this is just me but the 1.8 knock back is insane. To the point where I think the player has reach. :eek:

    I prefer 1.9. Oh, @Orangeric88: Knockback is still the same for all attacks unless there's a plugin that modifies knockback. @Build: Ask this to a lot of 1.8 servers and a lot will say 1.8.

    1.9:
    -Weapons with CD
    -Fights are fast paced if you add more DPS to your attacks by using secondary weapons such as lava
    -You still have to watch health because most of the time, you don't have a chance to eat without getting out-DPSed.
    -Bowspam is still VERY ineffective in close quarters, almost inaccurate if you're getting attacked. The time you take to charge an arrow could have gone to extra melee hits. Additionally, knockback and motion affect accuracy. The knockback taken from the hits will greatly reduce bow accuracy.
    -You can emulate rod knockback with quick bow shots and snowballs/eggs.
    -Off-hand can save some time, in turn allowing the user to use items slightly faster than pressing a hotkey and then start using the item.
    -Item management and more emphasis on secondaries such as axes.

    1.8:
    -Weapons reload and attack instantly
    -Combos are easier to pull off
    -Fights are fast paced.
    -Rod knockback
    -Bowspam is STILL ineffective, but knockback and motion do not penalize accuracy.
    -1.9 to 1.8 has a bug when blocking is emulated on a 1.9 sword in a 1.8 server.
    -Fights are based on CPS. CPS determines your melee DPS. Effectively, this is 2 times your melee damage against a single target.
    -Strength is way too OP (level 1 for a 2.3x multiplier, level 2 for 3.6x)

    Note: Before any 1.8 players start flaming and saying "axes are super OP weapons in MC," don't even bother. Axes are and will never have the most DPS compared to the sword.

    1.9 all the way m8 bow spammers are ez to crit out and although rods don't work on cubecraft the pulling effect is the best thing ever. Not to mention a well placed arrow/snowball works exactly the same as a 1.8 rod does :p and don't even get me started with the 1.8 takes more skill thing... 1.8 is a crutch for people who can't strafe or aim amazingly... This is why when I come on cubecraft I can out pvp almost every1 except the very top players. Just to put an example try fighting a kill aura user in 1.8 with nothing but a sword it is possible but a kill aura user with nothing but a sword is near impossible and takes a lot of skill to defeat them. I could go on all day just because of how sick I am of people saying 1.9 takes no skill.. If that was the case I would only win 50% of 1.9 fights while in reality I win 90%

    Cubecraft should really have 2 versions one for 1.8 and one for 1.9. To keep the servers up, they should have different ranks for each server :)

    Having the fists as a weapon in my opinion is a great thing. It encourages rushing instead of camping.

    Also, the main reason I like 1.8 over 1.9 is because 85% of my 1.9 deaths can be considered a cheap death, which is closer to 15% in 1.8.

    Fists as a weapon is the most deadly thing known to egg breaking. Sometimes, if you break the egg, they fist you around sp much, your gear breaks. Up to the point where your naked. Plus, the knock back is 100% insane.
    I can see where your going with that. It happens here to.
    I actually die more from cheap deaths in 1.8 then 1.9. One of it being fisted to death. The second one being insane combos and knock-offs. The third one being, just walked off the edge of the bridge, knowing what the heck happened. :p

    Let's assume we're using diamond swords and diamond axes:
    A critical diamond axe deals 13.5 damage (assuming no strength potions and enchants). Diamond axes have 1 attack speed, so that means their reload time is 1 second. This means that the critical axe deals 13.5 DPS.

    A critical diamond sword deals 10.5 damage (same assumption as above). Swords have 1.6 attack speed, meaning they attack every 0.625 seconds. We take 10.5 damage times the attack speed and we get 16.8 DPS.

    Therefore, swords still have the higher DPS, but axes will pierce through more armor.

    1.9

    Takes more skill IMO (to master the perfect combos, when to click, when NOT to click) instead spam clicking a mouse and running half circles around people :v

    And people not bowspamming in 1.8 HAHAH THAT'S LITERALLY THE DUMBEST THING I'VE EVER HEARD!! Sorry if I sounded rude bud, but it's just not true xD oh yeah and no fishing rod tryhards ;D

    I prefer 1.9 because:
    1. I can make fun of people asking for 1.8 to return
    2. You can choose a Sword or an Axe based on the way you fight
    3. In my opinion 1.9 takes the most skill, less spamclicking
    4. You can have 2 items in your hand at once
    5. Making fun of people asking for 1.8 to return
    6. Making fun of people asking for 1.8 to return
    7. Making fun of people asking for 1.8 to return

    I like 1.8 PvP, because there's more action and there are 'fishing' rods where I myself can handle it great :D
