    Hide and Seek is my favourite minigame on this server. However after playing each map a few times, it's gets easy to remember where the better or more obvious hiding places are. For example, the places where there is a single block missing in a section of the same block, like a hole in the gravel in Mines or a missing block in the stack of bookcases in Library.

    What I suggest is to make something that will randomise this missing block places so no-one will be able to memorise where these hiding places are. This could probably be done just with redstone rather than needing an extra plugin. A random selector could activate different command blocks to replace a block with air, each time a map is loaded.

    I think this is a good idea, might be hard to implement but will certainly help with maps such as mines where it's easy to memorize where everything should be.

    Especially with Mines. I could count on one hand the number of matches I've played there where everyone was not found.

    I really like your idea. :)
    I don´t play Hide and Seek often but when I play it I tend to hide at the same places. A bit of variation would be fun.

    I agree 100% with this. I think some time in the future we'll be getting new H&S maps, but even if we added 500 new maps, it'd only be a matter of time before the spots in those maps are memorized too.

    I love the idea too, especially because most Seekers already know where I'm hiding when playing the game
