    The merge between these two great communities has added in many new players in to this tremendous game. As a long time player of this game, I want to show you a few things you should not do, and something else to do instead. If any other Chunk players want to add to this, just commet! I hope that showing players more efficient ways of playing will make the general playing field at a higher quality!

    First, and foremost is something for building defenses.
    Here is a quick video showcasing a build style I see a lot. I show why it is inefficient by breaking one block and proceeding to jump over the rest of the wall. I then make a wall that also only takes one break to ruin, but it can be extended for many more breaks required. It also requires much fewer blocks.


    Another thing I often see is people jumping down into the opponent's flag. You do not have to do that and it puts you at a heavy disadvantage. As we can see from the below picture, I could mine the flag perfectly fine without jumping down.

    Finally, in the map "double helix", there is a common urge to come back the way you came from when carrying the flag. If you have a decent amount of hit points left, that is a bad idea. You are putting yourself against a plethora of newly spawned players. It was hard enough to get through without slowness!
    Instead, do this:
    The fall damage is quite worth it to avoid the players.

    Nice tips, great to see people from The Chunk writing guides and such and getting themselves involved in the community ^-^.
