Assassinations is a difficult game at the start, it is hard to go against all the OP diamond/iron guys, here are a few tips to survive . Height Advantage: Always try to get the height advantage on players, you can see more from higher places, as the players on the ground have building in front of them. Also when you see a player and you are ready to attack, you can always get a critical hit and do more damage, but be careful, you will loose a lot of damage when you jump off. Less damage when falling: When you are hit off a really tall building, for example on top of the shops, to reduce the damage taken hold shift, it could save your life. Try to find the easy route: If your are trying to find a certain area to get loot or to meet up with someone without dying, always try to find the safest. fastest and easiest route, you can do this by sticking to the roof tops, staying out of ANY PvP, and always keep a line of sight on your destination. Replenishing armour and weapons: If you have low durability on any of your weapons and armour, and you have loads of the same item in your inventory, you can easily add more durability and safe inventory space. You can easily do this by taking an item. e.g. A wooden sword Then take another wooden sword and put them both into the 2x2 crafting grid when you open up your inventory [E]. Use a good pair of headphones: Your normal speakers on your computer/laptop/Mac are fine for PvP, but using a good pair of headphones gives you a slight advantage over players. With the headphones you can hear sounds which normally you couldn't hear as good using normal speakers. For example, if you are around tight corners and you are scared a player would come around the corner and kill you, using headphones would help prevent that 50% of the time. As with the headphones you can hear players from further than usual, and you can hear their footsteps easier. Having a good gaming PC: Having a good gaming computer would help you a lot, since on most laptops, it tends to lag a bit every now and then, and that one lag spike could lead you to your death, having a good, beefy computer which could handle games such as minecraft without any lag would give you a advantage over players which lag a lot, because your game isn't, jerking around and you can hit/play smoothly. I hope this helped you guys. ~MinecraftPenguin21~ ps: Staff Members can you please lock this and delete ANY posts as this is only to read, thank you, also feel free to edit it and add tips of your own .
