    1.9 sucks doesn't include any reasons. Please don't be like Go back to 1.8, just tell me what you don't like about 1.9

    I don't like 1.9, because I personally prefer the simplicity of 1.8. You grab a sword, armour, and go fight. There is no delay in hitting, and optifine ofcourse, which made it playable for me :).

    Now you have 15 different kind of arrows with negative effects, wings, shields, you barely do damage because there is an attacking delay, and my own team pushes me off the bridge when I am building in team skywars. The 1.9 update made teamkilling go to the next level. Literaly wait for someone to build a bridge and push him off xD. Also there is no optifine yet for 1.9, and I don't want to play with low fps and framedrops.

    I would like the server to go back to 1.8, because I just preferred the combat system there. After all it is still a block game, and I want to play the simplicity of it. I love cube minigames, but 1.9 makes it not enjoyable for me at the moment. I could give it another shot when all the "bugs" get fixed, and optifine gets released.

    Sincerely,
    Steven

    1.9 IS AMAZING!!! Killaura hackers won't kill you, dual wielding is amazing and a lot of players still try to gitterclick so easy kill farm for me huehuehue :cool:

    The only problem is that right now there are a lot of bugs, but they will be fixed after a while so i like it

    The 1.9 update was a smart and logical update from a business perspective. The game has been in decline for some time now, with players leaving various Minecraft communities in favour of other games that offer a more diverse and unique experience.

    Pre-1.9 PvP consisted of two users in an arm's race to degrade the other's armour, with very few elements of 'skill' involved. Players would have similar to identical loadouts, and every fight would conclude the exact same way.

    1.9 PvP adds variety to every combat sequence that you engage with. Bows are now a viable weapon, given that arrows can now be enchanted to apply potion effects on them. Shields seem to be a disliked feature among the community, and yet nobody seems to realize that it's essentially identical to the sword-block feature; it allows you to withstand more damage, at the expense of mobility, vision and offence. Axes are a viable weapon of choice now, providing more damage at the expense of some attack speed. The balancing of some potions and food items mean that fights are no longer reliant on essential loadouts, but rather this possession of 'skill' that players have bragged about supposedly having for the past 3 years.

    1.8 was simplistic, but it became stale very quickly. Rather than complaining that you dislike change, realize that 1.9's combat algorithm brings an innovative twist on Minecraft PvP that we've all been craving for.

    A lot of new bugs... there should've been a test phase, where staff would test all games, and reported all the bugs to the Devs, so they can fix them before they released 1.9 to the whole network.

    Why do I hate 1.9? Well there is a very simple reason for that. I've been playing Minecraft for quite some time now, I think about 4 years. In those 4 years I've spend thousands of hours pvping with the old combat system. As you can imagine I became quite good at killing other people. And now they decided to remove that system and put a new one in this place, which is completely unfamiliar to me. All the time I've spend practicing and getting better at pvp barely matters at all now.

    I personally think there are quite a few people who think the same way. I think that those who were good at 1.8 pvp are the ones who hate the update the most. I understand that there probably is more strategy involved, with the shield, different arrow types, dual wielding and attack cooldown, but for me it's just too different from what I'm used to.

    Why do I not just learn how to be good at 1.9 PvP? Well, first of all, I'm 17 now, I don't have as much time to be playing Minecraft as when I first started out. Furthermore, one of the two major reasons I was still playing Mc was because I was good at it. If I have to learn 1.9 PvP I might as well start playing a new game. And finally, even if I learn how to be good at PvP in the 1.9 update, who says this particular system is here to stay? Maybe I'd have to learn a completely new system in Minecraft 2.1 or something.


    I just realized that I should probably point out that I love basically everything else from the 1.9 update, just not the changes in the combat system.

    I never said that, don't say I did. (The complete sentence is ''1.9 sucks doesn't include any reasons. Please don't be like Go back to 1.8, just tell me what you don't like about 1.9'')

    You can't say that. Many others do like 1.9.

    I feel like you ignored almost my entire post and only replied to the troll part of it...
    So I deleted that part, is that enough to be taken seriously?

    It is more easy to do team killing on team SkyWars. If your partner is doing rush you can push him to the void!

    Is it a possibility that you set the CubeCraft back to 1.8, and release a beta server for CubeCraft 1.9, where people that like 1.9, can play there and use the feedback from those people to fix all the bugs, glitches and such? Now we are all stuck with a buggy and laggy 1.9 CubeCraft, and you guys are stuck with probably 2000+ players complaining about the update.

    I think this could be a great solution. The people that dislike 1.9, can still play the server on 1.8 for now, and the people that want to play 1.9 can play on the beta server?

    Sincerely,
    Steven

    #1 moneywalls the walls don't drop so its unusable as of now on 1.9
    #2 i cant find any way of installing optifine with the new client so i lag like hell
    #3 breaking the egg on eggwars kills everyone (hope its a glitch)
    #4 using vanity stuff in lobby is irritating because it keeps glitching out and flashing the screen

    this is just from 20 minutes on here. if a server owner is going to do something as large as this update they should have done it on a test server its how i used to do it and its not hard then you just copy it over and your good to go.

    i have only tested lobby, money walls and egg wars because those are all i play on here though i am sure those are not the only things it broke

    my opinion of 1.9 on cubecraft.is it is really bad . becouse the combat is strange and it doesn't play great. shields are to OP. there are plenty of bugs and. can't you make like a 1.8 server and a 1.9 server that way every buddy is happy.

    I love 1.9, but the annoying thing is the punching players sound, the pushing players (which can be fixed using scoreboard). But golden apples have changed and I hate the cool downs.

    Ssup ya'll,
    =============Positive============
    So 1.69(a.k.a 1.9) is sick looking from the survival aspect.
    I mean a renewed end dimension, Elytra, dual wielding while mining or building etc.
    And i get the fact that there are going to be so much more minigames with the features that are introduced like some kind of Flying parkour using the Elytra.
    =============Negative===========
    But when you look to the pvp update as a whole it is pretty uhmm... fudged up especially for the people that have been playing Mc for a while now.
    I tried playing a game of survival games which miraculously worked, but it was way too slow for me you hit someone wait a second ask him what his favourite football club is, hit again and he answers of course it's Chelsea.
    And whenever someone got their hands on a shield he or she is basically invulnerable.
    Also I joined kit pvp and there were so many people in the lobby i got pushed around and couldn't click the signs.
    =============Conclusion==========
    Minecraft 1.9 pvp Sucks Skippy balls
    Minecraft 1.9 Survival Doesn't suck Skippy balls

    Also this is my opinion pliz no h8 m8 and r8 8/8
