    "But Ping, they just made a skywars update like two weeks ago..."
    Ok so basically, Skywars is my favourite game. Yes. I said it.

    And I especially like how "vanilla" it feels on CCG compared to other servers, aka crafting, mining for ores, enchanting, anvils, etc.

    Now when you go to mid first to get a fully enchanted diamond armor and sharp II sword you find what?
    "Diamond chestplate, Protection I, Fire Protection I"
    "Diamond leggings, Unbreaking II"


    These two items
    These two, trigger me SO HARD
    BECAUSE THEY'RE SO USELESS AND WEIRD

    Because, different type of protection (aka Environmental Protection and Fire Protection) can't be mixed.
    And when you try to fuse a protection enchantment to get protection I... you can't.
    So chestplate is out of enchantable stuff.
    Then you decide to enchant leggings. Ok. You can add protection on them. Not totally useless.
    But why do they have unbreaking?
    They're made out of diamond! They never break in normal mode and they only spawn in normal mode...

    This means, you can't enchant them in an enchanting table but need to craft a "normal" set of leggings and enchant it.
    So you're left with only being able to decently enchant the helmet, and the boots.


    Ok, we had enough about faulty enchants, now about chest item pool.
    Just why does skywars only have three swords?: Wooden sword, diamond sword, and enchanted wooden sword.
    Let's talk about the armor pieces? Only two/three per piece. Leather helm. Diamond helm. Iron chestplate, diamond chestplate. Leggings and boots are the only ones with three pieces.
    IMHO Armor pieces should be of every type, with a randomized chance to have a protection enchant, and swords should again be of all types and with a random chance of sharpness, max 1.
    Another thing that triggers me: craftable notch apples.
    Why. Just why? Nobody ever asked for them... and in some maps you can get up to 3 notch apples, becoming incredibly powerful and unkillable.
    There's a reason if 1.9 made them uncraftable...
    Ye pretty much I want them removed
    Kill them with fire

    And last thing, there are so many things you could craft to make useful stuff.
    I.E iron ingots to make minecarts (idk) or pistons, or anvils. There are no iron ores in some maps and if there are they're usually not enough to craft anything.
    Leather to make leather armor or books, to craft bookshelves and increase enchantment level.
    Ye pretty much this is my thread

    @Tacosbefriends hai (pls opinions i fna SW is getting kinda boring with always the same items)

    I really like your suggestion and you're right but I don't like your last suggestion. Don't get me wrong but it would make skywars kind of a survival game where you have to craft things to become powerful but skywars isn't about crafting things it's about fighting.

    Agree with everything you said except the Notch Apples. It adds incentive to go to mid instead of camp.

    Thiss!! Make Skywars great again. I totally agree with the stuff that needs to be totally random and not always the same, what is really boring after playing skywars for a short time. :/ I also thought why the Chestplate and Leggings are already enchanted, because the enchants are IMO totally useless. .-. Maybe they did it, because if you'll have a normal one that you can enchant that in mid and than you'll get protection what is very overpowered IMO. :/ What IMO needs to be removed are enchantments, because if you enchanted your armour and you are fighting against someone else without enchants, it is unfair IMO. :/ You've got my support Pingie <3

    We get it, it's your opinion ._.

    Uhhh skywars is not supposed to be fair, I think... Chests are randomized, you can get full diamond or you can get full leather... Then if you want the gear you have to get it yourself. Also it's not like you can't get enchants, you can, and to do so you need to go to the middle usually... Which can be quite a hassle in some maps.

    Honestly I agree...Skywars could use a massive item overhaul but it wont come any time soon. FInding these useless items is annoying and half of the items I don't use.

    I have no idea of how the SG chests algorithm works, could you explain it to me? Is it like, randomized armor, tools and enchants?

    Contrary to belief, they actually stack. As in the example, you'd have an EPF of 3 (2 from fire prot, 1 from general prot) against fire but 1 EPF against general damage.

    As for the unbreaking legs: you can't combine 2 diamond legs unfortunately.

    For notch apples: Don't have to remove the recipe for 1.8 mode, but remove the recipe for 1.9 SW.

    No... that's not how it works... I think? Be more clear please?
    You actually can... to get unbreaking III... which is useless on diamond gear in normal.

    For the first question: looking at enchant mechanics, let's say we have feather falling 4 and a full set of prot 4 against fall damage. We know a full set of prot 4 gives 16 EPF against general damage. Feather falling 4 gives 12 EPF against fall damage.

    OHHH I get it now. Heh. I mean yes, protection and fire protection together do "something" but they can't be enchanted with any other protection enchant...
