    I was on spleef. It was great until there were three people left counting myself. The 3rd person went into a corner and cut all the blocks around him making it impossible to beat him. Is this an actual strategy, or is this not allowed. I would really like to know. Here is a picture. 2015-03-07_21.04.53.png

    In my opinion, I would say it's is just a strategy, but it does seem a little unfair.

    To counter this strategy you can just go afk. xD

    I've struggled with this situation before and it almost always ends up with two people trying to wait each other out. (Trust me. I know.)
    Now, the obvious solution would be to swallow your pride and leave game, but then someone who played "poorly" will win. Now turning this into a suggestion, what if when only two spleefers remain, block decay will appear around the rim of the arena and delete it bit by bit. That way, anyone who forms a little island and hides, will eventually have to act. And you (hopefully playing fairly) will get the win you deserve. :D

    Jumps onto the last few blocks of the game. Sees a nice random block, jumps, block disappears, dies. That's what would happen to me if this actually is put in place.

    If it went around the outer rim first, you'd have a better chance of survival.

    Lol @Soph and i used to play spleef a lot, and this would always be my strategy.
    Look at it this way; if you actually let somebody mine the 40 or so blocks around them (because it isn't as easy as it sounds) then you probably deserve to lose. As was said above though, go afk and come back to a victory :)

    ~If a player would to remain in a 4 block area without leaving the area, the blocks will fall under him.

    Suggestion.

    How about, you can't stay in 1 location for 10 seconds. If you do, you will fall to "afk".
