    This is a game I invented using falling block spawners. This game combines elements of parkour with a deathmatch-like pvp twist. Players run around collecting items from loot boxes while dodging hazards like suffocation and lava. After five minutes, any players still alive are given a diamond battle shovel that they can use to fight other players and dig around the existing sand. The last player alive is the winner.

    I like it. Like what javid said, it keeps you moving, unlike shop campers in assassinations.
    Suggestion: A player also receives 5 snowballs named Lightning_Snowball, and lightning strikes on the snowball after a second, or longer, because the delay can be edited.
    Commands/How to make it:

    That's a brilliant idea. If this game does get added, it likely won't be using spawners or command blocks but will be coded as a plugin. PvP doesn't start until after 5 minutes, so the snowballs would have to be given out after PvP is enabled.

    Lol, oops. I like this concept, it is like tnt run but less movement and I guess more watching.

    I like the idea, I've seen the concept before though, just not with the loot crates. Otherwise, it's great!

    ik ive made a comment about lightning snowballs before, but the way i made it earlier would only work 1 time until the snowball was out of the world. This one constantly summons lightning at a snowball, and multiple snowballs can be used at once.

    It's a suggestion.
    @halothe23 and @rubik_cube_man decides whether it will be added.

    It's a tad resource-expensive because I built it using spawners and redstone. Plugins are much less taxing on a computer, so if this were to be made using a custom plugin, it would be much less laggy.

    Would probably kill people with bad computers, but I love the idea :)

    Reminds me of my days in custom games of Halo: reach.
