Hey CubeCrafters!

It's been a while since our last community talk - but we're happy to let you know that we have another one being hosted soon! We've got a few topics that we want to bounce off of some people before pushing forward anywhere. On the agenda we have the following:

- Shields: Younisco, why are you talking about shields...? Who cares? >_> Well, there's a bit of an issue that has arisen when going through bug reports. In 1.9, shields do around a 2/3 damage reduction when blocking against melee attacks, like from swords and axes, but you still receive a (reduced) knockback. However, in 1.11, shields now block 100% damage, and you take no knockback. This has been a bit of a problem when considering both Java and Bedrock, where the PvP styles are completely different, yet shields have the same functionality. We want to have a bit of an open conversation about this, and discuss potential solutions. There would be a separate poll for Java and Bedrock, and I'd likely run a poll on the forums after the call. But we just want your immediate opinions before knowing what to move forward with. πŸ›‘οΈ
Note that this part will be split into separate parts, one talking about Java, and one talking about Bedrock. There will be separate polls too!

- Suggestions: After reading threads regarding our suggestions subforum from @InsaneOrbitzz and @KitsuneToru, as well as talking to a few of our admins about it, we agree that suggestions right now is a tad bit misleading, for both long term and new community members. We have a solution that we wanted to move forward with beforehand, but also another more ambitious solution that we want to try and potentially get to grips with. This likely won't have a poll afterwards as we'd want to push for this as soon as possible. πŸ“œ

- Stuff: We want to talk about something else. You'll find out what, but there's something else. πŸ˜‰
Also want to catch up about platform-based matchmaking and knockback on Bedrock, since that's been out for more than a month now. πŸ˜„

The community talk will take place on Saturday 20th February at 6pm GMT on our Discord server. Join here!

Can't wait to see you all there! πŸ˜„ πŸ’™

Saying that it's a "tad bit misleading" is a massive understatement. As I said in my thread, there are countless issues that have existed for years. It is nice however to see cubecraft finally admit that there are at least some issues, which is a change from the years of straight up denial. I hope something productive comes out of these talks.
