    There seems to be a lack of true PvP within factions which is worrying considering factions is classified as a PvP game. After asking admins if we could get a PvP arena build to increase the amount of pvp on the server I was rejected so decided to invest my time into building a enormous pvp arena which will be available to all to fight in.

    I'm thinking of running gladiator series, Faction tournaments, King of arena style games. There may be entry fees to some and big prizes available. If you have any other ideas please let me know.

    I'll include some images of the project so far :

    I've seen many better looking arenas, but seeing as how you did it all in survival this it's pretty neat. I would definitely sign up for some of your tournaments here, and I think you're right. There's not enough PVP in factions. Also, as CFH, (Chief Financial Hobbit) you could make a TON of profit from this if you have a fee for signing up.

    That's exactly why I don't Like factions, I think that the arena is a great idea and the idea of giving people prizes because people would do ANYTHING for the prizes. But please give the players that get killed prizes like a spare set of normal diamond armour so they feel better after they die.

    As long as there aren't any buffs to people (Potion effect.) I'm in. (And if we don't have to bring our own stuff, I don't want my prot IV breaking, preferably iron gear would make it more fair.)

    So just like the normal BG plugin, you spawn with gear and the person that gets the most kills wins, or last man standing.

    Yeah this is my first ever "big build" in terms of it being a big piece of architecture, making it in survival has made my first time even harder but more enjoyable. I look forward to seeing you in the arena.

    The idea is that people get armor to fight in. So it's a true test of PvP skill and not what potions and enchantments you have. Ofcourse variables like lag will play a part but no advantages for doners ect, it should be good.

    Look forward to seeing you let loose in the arena.

    I'd also like to announce the first tournament will be free for all to compete in (armor provided too). It will be single player tournament ran along side a doubles tournament too. Prize pool of 64 diamonds for each tournament. Further information will be released upon completion of the arena.

    Like this idea, but probably ranked matches would make it more fair, like people in the same armor would fight eachother, not people in prot 4 against iron guys :p

    I actually understand they wanted a more survival based faction server. It gives the players more freedom to do what they want and gives players such as myself to do a project like this which players who want more pvp can have it and those that don't do not have to fight, do they?

    Unlike over servers where they set up a nice little base. TNT cannoned within a day.

    GG to Halo, i see where he is coming from.

    Don't bring in items you don't want to lose. Simple.
