    Just a short question, but were rods given knockback for 1.9 PvP when the server was updated 2 days ago? I know before the 1.8 server update and in vanilla they didn't, but since Cube has 1.8 clients in skywars and eggwars, I just want to make sure.

    I hope the rods have knock back, and I hope they em to eggwars would make game much more challenging and fun.
    And was supposed be in a different place cuz I don't see how this is a suggestion

    The problem with the rod combo in 1.9 is that weapons don't instantly reload, so the old method doesn't work completely. That is, say we have a rod in slot 2 and a sword in slot 1. If I swap to slot 2, cast the rod to produce KB, and switch back to my sword, I can't maximize the effectiveness since the sword takes 0.625 seconds to reload (just 0.125 seconds over the time the target is immune to damage + knocked away).

    I just tested rods on the off-hand and they don't work.

    Still, do 1.9 rods produce knockback as of the "Return of 1.8" update?

    Oh ok, I wish they didn't have a reload time that is why I don't like 1.9 that much

    You can do a similar technique with throwing a snowball/egg or shooting an arrow at the opponent as all these items can be offhanded. Maybe in 1.11 when fishing rods work in the offhand the rod technique will be restored but I personally prefer the vanilla minecraft fishing rods with their pull back

    I already made that suggestion but it was denied, why? Because you could get to mid and fishing rod people off all the live long day

    Fishing rods do no damage anyway it takes 2-3 casts for a half a heart of damage

    Rod deals 0 damage regardless, but the knockback can be used to have the target take environmental damage.
