    PvP FFA is one of my favourite gamemodes, especially when you can watch players fight out! However, I think the death messages in chat are a bit... plain. Although there are better messages for Plus users, I think the killfeed could be improved to show off player skills, be more comical, etc. during a fight.

    Part 1: Player Skill
    Sometimes I see players get some really awesome kills and I think they could be shown off in the kill feed. For example, an archer could snipe someone from very far away and that could be show in the kill feed:

    Or, some players will defeat multiple players in quick succession in one life. Something like this could be announced:
    skill2.PNG

    Another message could be when a player defeats another player while they are on low health:
    skill3.PNG
    Part 2: Plus Messages
    Some of the Plus messages are pretty funny however I feel they don't stand out in the killfeed and more should be added to keep up with memes.
    Here's an example of a different colour scheme for plus members which could work:

    Some more messages should be added that are more up to date! Possibly could be taken from the giant CCG memes thread :p

    Part 3: Other Messages
    Some other messages could be added to show events.
    One example could be dominations. In chat it will announce when a player is dominating another after killing them X number of times.

    Another event could be killstreaks. An announcement in chat that would say a player's killstreak when they reach multiples e.g 5, 10, 20, 30. However, I can see how this could lead to players hunting down those with high killstreaks.

    I've also noticed players like to act friendly for a while on the game and then suddenly kill their friends. Somehow a system could be implemented to see if two players have spent time next to each other for a while, and then post a message in chat when one kills the other. Or it could be based off their friends list.

    Part 4: End
    Thank you for reading this suggestion, I'm all for hearing your comments about it! :)

    I don't think that's a good idea. The player,in this case Steve, could get focusses. Overall O agree that they should change the PvP death messages.

    Heeii mitgobla. ^_^
    I really like some of your ideas, your best suggestion is “Steve sniped mitgobla from 300 blocks away”. Also you can challange yourself, “200 is my longest snipe” maybe the next time I will get a snipe of “300 blocks away”.

    “Steve is a god-like! 20 killstreaks” also this. I really like this idea, but I think that “Steve” will get focused. Because every player want him to die because he have the most kills.

    I really like this 2 above, I hope they will add some of this. Keep it up with making threads man! <3

    Great suggestion. But as mentioned, the kill streak message could be left out to prevent focussing.

    Instead, you could mention the killstreak when they die. Here's what I mean:

    Steve broke Ruisdier's killstreak of 61

    This message will start appearing from a killstreak of 10.


    Also the '1 heart left' thing could better be left away to prevent focussing. However, I don't see a better alternative for this.

    What I do have, is some of my own ideas.

    Ruisdier killed Steve while flying with elytra
    Ruisdier already killed Steve within 5 seconds after spawning
    Ruisdier killed Steve without taking damage

    Good suggestion, keep it up!

    Yes but not everyone uses labymod. Most people don't use it. If the chat says "... killed ... with only ... hearts left" everyone can see it.

    Yep I completely agree here, I think I overlooked the fact there are cleaners and focusers in PvP.
    These are excellent ideas!

    I'm surprised this isn't already implemented. It could even state what class the person was:
    Steve [Warrior] killed mitgobla [Archer] with Sword

    That would sound boring to me, to be honest. Though you can make a fancy kill message show up if you kill someone with a speed pot, it'd be nice to see more kill messages. Just to liven up the chat a bit, even though I'm not too sure if anyone would really pay to much mind to it.

    Yeah fair, I guess some people are far too busy cleaning or fighting each other :p I think it would make the game mode more attractive and stand out overall though :)

    Warrior killing a beast won't interest anyone. But oh boi, the chat will get a wave of spam if a sniper kills a beast

    Plus players should be able to choose the colour of their kill messages.
