Do you think teaming/stalling in PvP minigames should be an offence?

    Hi everyone! :)
    I've been playing Minerware nearly every day since I started playing on CubeCraft, it's my favourite gamemode so far.
    Recently however, I have seen players teaming or stalling the game during PvP minigames (including boss minigames)

    For example this happened today:
    All players are eliminated except for two players during the Lucky Block PvP boss minigame. Every other player who has died now has to sit there and watch nothing happen. These two players were close to the top of the leaderboard, so they would both win by not killing each other.

    I have seen this happen in a few of the other PvP games (such as Last Knight Standing on hard, or snowball fights). So I'm running a poll to see what your opinion is on this. I don't have too much of a problem with this, except when you have to wait for so long in some cases ;)

    Do you think it's fair for players to not complete the objective so their party/friends gain an advantage to win the game, while everyone else waits it out?

    I really don't have a problem with this to be honest.. And making teaming in Mineware against the rules won't solve the problem..
    Players will fight, one will run away the other will run after the other, and they'll just stall time by running and running, sometimes fighting.
    Same with other games: Players will shoot arrows at each other (Bow Spleef) but they'll miss on purpose so nobody dies. (Spleef) Players will break blocks close to each other but on a way that it won't kill the other so it looks like they're doing the thing. But really they're stalling time.
    So making teaming against the rules won't work. There are many ways to make it look like you're fighting but you're actually just stalling time. You also can't report them because you don't have actual good proof that they're stalling time.

    Overall they should remove the pvp games (the mini sg, lucky blocks pvp, get the most kills...) Some people, including me, just go to minerware to have fun without having to pvp with people.
    I don't mind if people can punch you in king of the hill, nerd pole to the plataform... but the microgames that are only pvp based are just spin-offs of games like lucky blocks, sg.
    And yes, they do gain an adventage, but there's no team minerware so it wouldn't make any sense to make teaming punishable.

    Good insight. I don't have a problem with it either (other than having to wait) and as you've stated it's a difficult thing to make a rule that can be reported if broken. :)

    I love the PvP minigames but I definitely think that Minerware should include more friendly minigames like the "Cross the Balance beam" - minigames that test skills
    other than PvP combat.

    Thank you both for giving me your thoughts on it. :cool:

    I get your idea/problem, but I still think it's better when you are allowed to team the whole game.

    In my opinion cube should not allow any teamers in any solo game (MinerWare is solo, especially with last man standing or lucky block pvp)
