KitPvP Duel Arenas

 Duel Arenas



The Kit-PVP Duel arenas were launched a few days ago, as a beta test, and are now fully released.

What are Duel Arenas?

Duel Arenas are a place where all players can go to engage in one-on-one-combat, either for fun or for a prize.
To start Dueling, simply type /duel

The duel arena is a safe pastime. In case of death, there is no penalty, and no items will be lost upon death. This includes not affecting your KDR.


There are currently 3 different arenas, and we plan on adding many more very soon. There is also 3 different types of arenas. These include:

 Basic - Full iron armour, diamond sword, and 1 golden apple

 Meat Slap - No armour, 1 piece of meat

 Donor - Full diamond armour protection 2, diamond sword prot 2, bow prot 2, 2 golden apples ( Donor is currently open for all users )


Prizes

When you win a Duel against another player, you will be granted 1 duel point, and $2.50
This is subject to change.

Duel points are purely cosmetic at the moment, and are a way to see how experienced other players are. To view someones Duel Points, type /duels points

To view the leaderboard for the most Duel points, type /duels top

Staking will be a new type of arena coming very soon. Staking will cost $10 to enter an arena. The winner will get $20. There will most likely be various prices for these arenas.

Bugs

Many bugs have been patched within the past few days. If you find any glitches or bugs, please post them on this thread, and you will be given a reward.

Hub



MineVast Radio is one of my favorite features ever added to Hub. You may notice some custom music made with note blocks that resemble real life songs! Open the Music menu by typing /music or right clicking the jukebox in your inventory. From there you can choose what song you want, disable music, go on shuffle/random mode, or listen to the Minevast radio! More songs will be added soon! There is currently 21 songs.

Donator Gadgets is a revamped version of the old Gadgets. This new version will improve server lag issues, as well as adding new things! There's also more than just fun new gadgets, such as Pets, Mounts, Particle Effects, Rave/Space costumes, Trails, Morphs and more! Check it out by right clicking the gadget chest in your inventory. Become a donator to use these features @ http://store.minevast.com




Creative


1.8 Blocks are finally here :D. You can now fully use all 1.8 blocks and items (Except for a few such as Armour Stands). Most of the items you can now use are displayed at spawn! If you cannot connect to Creative, that is most likely because you are not on 1.8 - Only 1.8 clients can join now.

Info Board is a sidebar that appears on your screen displaying useful information such as how many gems you have, what plot you are standing on, who you are married to ect. To disable the info board type /hide. To bring it back type /show

Local Chat is a good feature for all those role-players out there! Type /local to enter the local chat. While in local chat, only players within a 250 block radius can hear your messages. Alternatively you can type /local to send a message in local chat, but not actually enable it. Warning: Staff can see local chat no matter where they are.

Player Heads were demanded by almost everyone on Creative! To spawn in a playerhead type /ph spawn .

Server Performance has been greatly improved. WorldEdits will no longer crash the server, and allowing you to now edit up to 350,000 blocks at once instead of the original 25,000. Ghost chunks will now auto de-spawn after a certain amount of time, decreasing the CPU usage of Creative. Additionally, we've cleaned up some of the plugins as well as removing old ones. Hopefully Creative won't be crashing anymore! And if it does, it will now instantly start back up


Website


Statistics and Leaderboards are a way to track you and your friends stats! We are tracking just bout everything from basic variables such as Kills and deaths, to more specific variables such as buckets filled, food eaten, items picked up ect. ect. You can also view the leaderboards for categories such as time played, most kills, most deaths and KD ratio! We will be adding more leaderboard options within the near future. Check it out @ http://minevast.com/stats

Hompage news feed now automatically displays latest announcements properly.


Factions


The Factions server is making good progress. I've finished the core basics of the server, and am about 50% done the new techy stuff. Eluthria is making amazing progress on the new spawn, and I have to say it's one of the most unique factions spawn i've seen! I do not currently have an ETA of release, but I can tell you that it'll be out soon.

The new Map was made my Saxibus, a 6-7 month project! It is about 8k x 8k, and absolutely PACKED with orgasmic terrain, dungeons, shafts, caves, and more! On release there will actually be two worlds. The Main world, where you would create your base, and a resource world that would reset every 2 weeks. The resource world will have a 1.8 world generation. A new post will be coming soon explaining all the new features of Factions. Thank you for waiting so patiently! <3

Here is a little sneak peak of the map http://imgur.com/a/eTTfE
