    First off, as I'm a regular Survival Games player I decided to do a little guide about the kits.
    I'll basically be explaining the kits a bit more in depth.
    Also for the 3 most used kits I included a how to play against part.
    Hope you enjoy!​


    Archer
    - with this kit you get a bow and 2 arrows + a 10% chance to return hit arrows
    - costs only 100 points

    A very simple kit for players that like to abuse bows, that 10% chance to return hit arrows is pretty useful.
    Good for beginners.
    All in all though as you can easily find bows & arrows in chests. I would say this kit is one of the worse ones.

    Rating: 2/10


    Bloodlust
    - a kill grants a stack of bloodlust
    - 1 bloodlust yields 10% damage and -1 hearts max hearts
    - max stacks: 3
    - costs 200 points

    A very underrated kit for players that have an aggressive style of play.
    If you kill 3 players you'll have your damage dealt upped by 30% which is very significant.
    Unstoppable kit in double and triple health, very risky in normal health.
    Would not recommend for beginners.
    This kit is broken at the moment.

    Rating: 7/10



    Brewing Accident
    - changing random potion effects
    - costs 250 points

    A kit that is based on luck. Every minute you get a random potion effect.
    The potion effects you can get can be either good or bad.
    You can get: Speed, Slowness, Weakness, Hunger, Regeneration and Resistance.
    If you get weakness you're basically screwed and have to run around for a whole minute.
    All in all this is a fun kit for people that aren't too serious about winning.

    Rating: 5/10


    Cannibal
    - saturation effect on kill
    - costs 250 points

    One of the best and most used kits. You get a saturation effect when you kill someone,
    which basically means your hunger bar will fill up to max and your health will start regenerating rapidly.
    Amazing kit for fighting teams, useless in hardcore mode as it doesn't heal you.


    How to play against it
    A lot of people think it's very difficult to fight against it, but that's not the case.
    If you set the player with saturation effect on fire their health doesn't really go up which gives you a great opportunity to finish them.

    Rating: 9/10

    Smuggler
    - smuggled chest of items
    - costs 600 points

    A quite useful but expensive kit. If you don't get a weapon from the middle and you don't wanna go search for chests
    this is the kit for you. However if you're a patient player and know where most of the chests are this kit is absolutely
    useless for you.
    Recommended for beginners.

    Rating: 5/10

    Demolitionist
    - TNT auto-ignites
    - reduced explosion damage
    - with this kit you get 4 TNT
    - costs 200 points


    Once a very used and good kit. However after the update and the nerfing of TNT this kit has become quite the useless one.
    TNT does much less damage now, so it's not that good anymore.
    Recommended for beginners & players that like to troll.

    Rating: 4/10



    Double Edged
    - increased attack damage
    - decreased damage taken
    - costs 400 points

    A great kit for players with an aggressive playstyle. While having this kit you deal so much damage.
    You can even one hit players with axes. However as the kit's description says "decreased damage taken" it actually
    doesn't decrease the damage you take. In fact it increases the damage you take.
    Great kit for OP mode and double and triple health, not bad for normal and basic.

    How to play against it

    I use this kit quite a lot, so I know what's good against it. Just bowspam the user of this kit.
    Especially if you have the power enchantment on your bow. 1 hit can take up to 3 hearts, yes, 3 hearts.

    Rating: 8/10


    Enchanter
    - reduced enchantment cost
    - you get 24 bottles o' enchanting and 8 lapis lazuli
    - costs 400 points

    A kit that noone uses yet is quite useful.
    As there were enchantment tables added to all maps this kit has become
    much more useful.
    Good kit for basic items, absolutely useless for OP.

    Rating: 5/10


    Fisherman
    - 1/3 chance to pull an item off a player
    - you get a fishing rod
    - costs 400 points

    Absolutely useless kit. The effect doesn't even work. Only thing you can do with this kit is that you can
    try to fish and find something good.
    Would not recommend this kit to anyone.

    Rating: 0/10


    Mans Best Friend
    - you get 2 wolf eggs
    - costs 400 points

    A very good kit. When you place the wolf eggs you get 2 dogs to fight alongside you.
    The dogs can be extremely annoying to your opponents and they also deal a lot of damage.
    Recommended for beginners and players that aren't the best at PvP.

    How to play against it
    There are more variants of this. First is that you only focus the player and leave the dogs be. When you kill the player
    you just run away from the dogs.
    Second is that you place TNT and blow them up (the tnt should still be enough after the nerf) or lava.

    Rating: 8/10


    Ninja
    - chance to turn invisible on hit
    - costs 400 points

    A kit that's not very useful. You have a chance to turn invisible if someone hits you.
    The only scenario where this kit would be good would probably be if you had no armor
    and you turned invisible and ran away.

    Rating: 1/10

    Peeta Bread
    - you get 4 bread
    - costs 100 points

    Useless kit once again. Getting 4 bread is nothing.
    Not even recommended for beginners, as there are many way better kits for them.

    Rating: 0/10


    Pyro
    - ignite players directly
    - chance to ignite yourself
    - costs 500 points

    An interesting kit that noone uses. You can basically ignite players with a hit.
    However if you get ignited yourself you're done.


    Rating: 3/10

    Scout
    - 2:00 swiftness II effect on start
    - costs 450 points

    A good kit that's been around for ages. Especially if you want to focus a certain player.
    Would recommend to players that like speed and are good at pvping with it.

    Rating: 7/10



    Tracker
    - you get a player tracker
    - costs 800 points


    A relatively good kit. This kit was way more useful before the update as you couldn't find player trackers
    in chests. It's still pretty useful though as there are many rounds where you won't find a player tracker.
    If you want to have quick games just pick this kit.

    Rating: 6/10


    Vampire
    - regeneration on kill
    - reduced day time damage
    - costs 800 points

    Once the best kit there was. However noone uses it now as it's been nerfed.
    You gain 2.5 hearts after every kill and when it's day time you deal less damage.
    It's significantly better at night time and hardcore mode.
    It's not the best kit, but it is better than most of the kits.

    Rating: 7/10



    So that has been a bit more in depth look into the kits.
    I hope that I helped at least a little bit!
    ~ Thanks ~​

    I'd bump vampire 2 points up if it's sunset or night and another tier up if it's hardcore mode. If it's hardcore but daylight, then double-edged is better.

    It depends on what you'll do. If you do pacifist challenge or hardcore for example, then cannibal is 0/10.

    For normal mode, those ratings are good. Demo isn't good because once you use up all 4 TNT then you lose your kit. It's good for water traps however.

    Demo used to be really OP, but after the update it's not quite the good kit it was..

    If you spam it as what most newbies do, it might get a kill but it'll destroy the drops. A good player will see that and back away, making you waste your TNT.

    You can still use it in traps to weaken players and then finish them off. Good for pacifist in theory because you cannot kill or hit anyone directly but you can still kill with iPvP (lava/fire and TNT).

    Couldn't agree more with all of these, I personally believe that cannibal shouldn't be as high rated as it is because right clicking a corpse does exactly what Cannibal does but better making it obsolete and useless.

    Fantastic thread nonetheless Thefty. :)

    Overall a pretty good overview on the kits.
    Sure, people can disagree, but half of the descriptions have to do with your opinion.
    Also, do you have suggestions of when to use what kit? (For basic, normal or OP) I usually always use Double edged since it gives me a really powerful feeling. If I get a fire aspect, you might as well kiss your chance good bye if you want to kill me. Double edged is the definition of nearly unstopable.

    Personally I use double edged all the time.
    I'd say for Double and Triple health definitely use Double Edged or maybe vampire and when they decide to fix Bloodlust, go for bloodlust
    for OP go for Double edged too.
    and for Normal and Basic go for Cannibal

    Thefty, this is quite the wonderful thread (besides spelling mistakes), so, I'm going to shower you with kindness and affection like everyone else! Even though, we all know Cannibal and Double edged are the only good kits. They deserve 11/10 and the others deserve 0.
