    Default "Ultra Hardcore" Last man standing

    We definitely should get something like this sometime:

    Die and you're out and there's no health regen (only via potions and golden apples). Last to live wins. (and they also had some rules like not branch mining so you have to go for caves)

    Everyone gets placed randomly somewhere on a map at different locations. Then it's pretty much ordinary survival trying to stay alive, but without health regenerating. It's free for all, so you can kill other players. If you're the only one left alive, you win.

    so, whoever digs the deepest hole and covers it best, and has the most patience, wins?

    2k by 2k map, blocked off by water. Everyone spawns randomly in that area. Last man standing wins: no respawn, no health regen, health potions are far harder to make, strip mining is banned, alliances are banned.

    GED has a competition server maybe we could run this.

    Sel: To combat that we'd just have a time limit and most kills wins at the end. Plus we'd likely have a judge TPing between people to ensure strip mining and alliance rules are observed. It'd be a game: if you're going to play it to with the rules or the spirit the judge just kills you and you don't get to play any more for being a dick.

    How would we deal with people who log off and/or join the game later than everyone else?

    EDIT: That said, I am very much interested in this.

    I have been watching Guude and the other guys for quite some time. This is amazing stuff, and you should try it out!

    Just my idea:

    You join the server, and arrive at the spawn. The spawn is located in the middle a safe zone structure (could be a castle) which is in the centre of the map, (also known as the wild). The map itself is where the last man standing game will take place.

    The safe zone is secured by walls and a gate. You cannot build or fight in the safe zone. This will stop people from getting out into the wild, interrupting the current playing game and/or players from starting early. The safe zone acts as a place to wait for the next game, spectator, group together and prepare.

    Included inside the safe zone are some portals (say three-four). Each portal takes you to a different place on the map. These portals are distributed evenly and have their own advantage, relative to the teleported location. This insures that players have a chance to separate themselves on the map. The safe zone gate can also be used to enter the map.

    Lastly, the map itself is enclosed in its own wall or boundary, which will stop players from leaving the map.

    I drew a map as an example:



    I think, the smaller the arena, the less portals there should be. Even to a point of having no portals.

    Watch the first video, it explains how this works. You can spawn in randomly assigned locations, have the map just cut off at a particular distance, even edit the landmass to make it more difficult if you want.

    Anything more than that, a safe zone or portals, would ruin the effect/be exploited.

    This sounds really freakin awesome. I probably won't be able to join in on the awesomeness (Weekends aren't really available for me anymore). My only suggestion would be to have no monsters. Make it PvP only. The monsters would just make it annoying me thinks.

    Random creepers dropping on you from a ledge and killing you are never annoying.

    Monsters can be avoided if you're careful. They should definitely remain. Only the weak will fall to them. You only die from "dumb luck" if you don't take the proper precautions.
