    I don't play Skywars as much as other games but from time to time I do end up playing it and one thing I end up thinking nearly every time I do is "Am i going to be reported for having anti-knockback."
    This is due to the "Increased Stability" Skywars ability that reduces knockback. For players who have it on maximum, you have a 32% chance of taking 50% less knockback. I have it on maximum and at times it genuinely looks like I have anti-knockback and I honestly think it is too over-powered. I can build on bridges and sometimes I will barely move if I get hit, which is usually a perfect way of telling if someone is using anti-knocback.
    On islands where you PvP to hit players off you're pretty much guaranteed to always win due to the ability.

    In addition, I have seen quite a few players who have been reported for having anti-knockback, and at times it is very difficult to distinguish whether someone is actually hacking or if it was their ability that was coming into effect. I could imagine some players being wrongly banned for having anti-knockback, not due to the staff member, but due to the ability.

    I don't think the ability should be entirely removed, but I think it should be nerfed in some way or form.

    It would great if everyone could provide feedback and to suggest anything else that they think is related to this thread :)

    I think you have nothing to fear bcs you are a mod. But indeed, it is hard to tell if a normal player is having hacks or just the full-upgraded ability.
    So yeah, It would be nice if it could be removed. I don't want to get banned :p +1

    +1 however, if I would be an admin I wouldn't just on a knockback video in skywars worth of a few seconds anyway.

    When you take less knockback, there could appear something like particles, so people can know if the player is hacking or not!

    This is one of the main reasons why i dont play SkyWars at all. the ammount of people on this gamemode is way too high (thus so many clips will come), and this ability can just ruin me if i play too much.

    I like the idea of a particle that appears when the ability takes effect. The only problem with this would be identifying the particle over the hit particles that appear as well

    People who report might have particles on minimal.

    Nope, they are cool, IMO. -1 What about the speed bust when you are in a PVP, ehhhh?
    I think the only bad ability is the antiknockback one, because it´s really strange :)

    I agree. How about both particles and a sound (or some kind of alert if they have both disabled), because it sometimes causes unrightful reporting.
