    Firstup I love Cubewars it's a great gamemode but it could be even better.
    You just need to change a few things...

    Balance function:

    Actually the Idea is not that bad but i think i have a better Idea...
    Of course, this function is essential for the gamemode without it the game would be really unfair but I think it would work even better if you punish the people who leave the match during game. I think about a 5 Minute timeban from all games on Cubecraft. This System works pretty well some german Servers use it unfortunatly iam not allowed to write the Ip's down so you could take a look.

    The other Idea could come in hand with the "punishmentidea" you should reward players which stayed in game.
    The advantage of this system would be that (if you play with friends) you don't have to suddenly fight against them which made me quit for to many times... Think about it ^^

    Item regeneration
    What is an Archer without arrows or a Builder without Blocks? Well i would say they pretty harmless.
    I mean after a while you don't have special Items anymore so you have to pick some items up (which can be really hard if your team is currently under siege) or you have to kill yourself.
    My Idea is that you recieve one Block/arrow every 20 seconds, it would make the game even more fun :3

    Tank buff

    Do you see anyone playing with the tank kit? Okay sometimes I see one lonely person which is playing the tank kit.
    Well I bought the Tank for 600 points and I really hope that you buff it. Take out the bow and give it like a diamond helmet, diamond pants and a diamond helmet so they can take some damage. This would be more balanced.

    I don't think punishing players for leaving is a good idea...
    Your Minecraft might crash, or your internet, stuff like that just happens.
    @tuxed has kinda changed the auto-balance system, he said this in another thread:
    "I've fixed this now, more or less along the lines of your idea. If the game has been than 40 seconds left, is not tied, or is not in overtime the autobalancer will be disabled." (https://www.cubecraft.net/threads/blockwars-autobalance.72991/)
    Besides, if you are alive, the 'auto-balancer' will not move you to the other team, so just make sure you stay alive when it pops up in chat ;)

    Love this idea :D

    That would make the tank kit way too OP, considering the other kits have leather armor...

    People have already posted a lot of comments and complains about the balance in BlockWars and the developers have said that they are working on a solution for that.
    About your solution it's hard for me to tell if it would work out well. You do got a point with what you say, but I think I'll stay neutral on that one.

    I posted a similar suggestion(only for Archer though) on TheChunk when the gamemode only was be found there. However, the developers responded with something like: "Archers are already enough powerful as they are with their knockback-stick and 20 arrows". After I thought about what they said I came to the conclusion that what they said was probably true. Because imagine how much the archers would be able to spam arrows if they didn't have to care about arrows. So I'll have to disagree with you on that one.
    Unfortunately it'll be the same with the Builder-kit, in my opinion. Since the game already have a stage when you can build, I wouldn't really appreachiate if the builders were able to build in the same way after the start of the actual game. I already think that the Builder-kit is strong. Because it allows the player to build like a staircase and get through the defences way faster than it would go with just a wooden pickaxe. So as I said I'll have to disagree with you once again. :3

    I don't really see a lot of people playing with the Tank-kit either, so I guess you have a point. I'm not an expert when it comes to knowing how much damage different swords will do on different armour, but if it's possible to make it a little bit more powerful by upgrading the armour I think it will do good in the game. So, I would say that I agree with you on that one. :)

    1.) Like I said, this system is currently Working on different Servers.
    And as you can see I wrote an exact time. 5 Minutes. If your Minecraft crashes you'll have to wait only 3 more minutes and if there is something wrong with your Internet, well you won't even notice that you got punished.
    This Argument is very old :)

    2.) It's cool that you like the Idea :)

    3.) Sure. But as a Tank you also got Slowness, and all other Kits have a Weapon.
    upload_2016-1-13_16-44-26.png
    This chart shows the amout of Armor points you'll recieve if you wear Armor.
    1/2 Armor point = 4% Damage reduction.

    Diamond Helmet + DBoots + Iron Chest + DLeggins =

    upload_2016-1-13_16-47-43.png + upload_2016-1-13_16-47-54.png + upload_2016-1-13_16-48-2.png + upload_2016-1-13_16-48-3.png = 9 Armor points = 72% Damage reduction
    The enemy Weapon deals 4-6 dmg.
    72% of 4 equals 2.88
    4 - 2.88 = 1.12 dmg ~ 1 dmg
    = <20 Hits are needed

    Let's say the enemy has a dmg reduction of 20% and your Weapon deals 3 dmg

    20% of 3 equals = 0.6
    3-0.6 = 2.4 dmg ~ 1.5 Hearts atd

    20 / 1.5 = 13.333 ~ 13< Hits needed.
    Okay... I must say maybe you made a good point...



    Yeah but you have to keep in mind that you would only recieve an arrow every 20 seconds which means that the Archers would be still vulnerable... The other option would be something like a Support kit.

    It seems like I read your suggestion wrong, sorry. I thought you meant that after 20 seconds you'll get back all your arrows and blocks. But if the arrows and blocks are limited to the maximum of arrows/blocks you had from the start I think it would be more fair. :)
    When I wrote this I came up with a small idea: How about making it so that Builders only can have a certain amount of blocks placed? I mean when he places down more than he is allowed to place, the first block he placed will disappear. It would prevent the Builders from building huge defences if they were regenerating blocks. In that case your suggestion would work fine(in my opinion). :)

    A Builder wont be able to build giantic defences.
    Let's do some math:
    7:00 = 7*60 =420 seconds
    420 sec : 20 = 21 extra blocks.

    Lets be serious if a builder Jumps down again and again, the player could get about lets say 100 Blocks.
    (21 x 5)

    Time ban: -1 because they might quit because of bad ping or something else.
    The others: +1 Builder kit is pretty useless once you use up your blocks.

    Chunk admins said this won't happen. It's a balancing mechanic. If it breaks, try left-clicking a few times. It might come back (first-hand experience).

    I can't imagine how this can be a balancing mechanic especially because you get it back by left clicking?
    I think they just made a mistake and are like:"It's not a bug, it's a feature"
