    get rid of the military map, fix the glitch where hitting someone temporarily allows them to fly (when using a client), get rid of sharp 20 bows, make more levels or make it cost more to level up (for example atm its 130 per level up but you can make it 50, then 100, then 200, etc.)

    the fly thing is easy fix it's called updating nocheat so you have to use up to date clients and I've been suggesting that for ages

    also no sharp 20 please

    and PLEASE NEVER USE AXES REPLACE ALL AXES WITH SWORDS IT RUINS COMBAT

    Thanks for these suggestions. An update with NoCheat is definitely a must.

    Currently, it's hard to say if we can change the kits at all, because the plugin is poorly coded and doesn't come with a config.

    • No reset
    • Keep sharp 20 bows
    • Keep fly
    • Take out barrier blocks
    • Take out stupid rules
    • Keep the current level up system
    • Add back the third voting link
    • Being back enderchests
    Anyone who thinks taking out bows or changing nocheat to a knew one is dumb because they will kill Minetime even faster than it is now lol. Any stupid changes like what all the people above stated will kill the server faster. Everyone played the old Infection because it was fun to fly glide and phase and made it a challenge. Now we can't do anything.
    If everything was back to the old Infection Minetime would easily gain back 200 players and I'd help bring them back to actually keep this server alive instead of the direction it's currently headed in which the server will be dead by 2018 if it even lasts that long.

    There are so many things wrong with that. The main point though is many many people completely QUIT infection for the soul reason of sharpness 20 bows.

    Reset the whole thing. All the dedicated players are prestige 10- a fresh start would be cool. Either do that or allow more prestiges

    A rank reset would be likely.

    I doubt anybody on here is going to agree, but this is what I would want to be able to find the game fun again.

    • Reset prestiges & levels
    • No opinion on sharpness 20 bows
    • Bring back the ender chest
    • Remove all barrier blocks
    • Add more prestiges (If so, sharpness 20 bows & golden apples should be moved to much higher prestiges)

    I liked all of this stuff... & if you don't, then my guess is that you never played long enough to experience things (like the ender chest) to your advantage. I never really got annoyed about this stuff before I could do it though. I knew that I would get there eventually & when I did, I would be able to spawn kill at desert too, for instance.

    The reason there was sharpness 20 bows is because it actually made you want to level up, and tbh that was one of the things that made me (and probably some others) want to get to prestige 6 because it made something worth getting not just some fire aspect sword or blast protection. Also prestige 6 took me 1 and a half years to get (excluding another year where i was LCPL for ages), and if you actually put effort into getting it you realise how you deserve it by the time you have that much playtime.

    If you were actually one of the people who tried getting the bow and put some effort into it you would realise how good and worth it was, like the people who bought /fly on pvpfest know how useful that was. To be honest I remember being a prestige 1 or 2 and I found it really annoying until I got it and then it was brilliant.

    I also think the ender chest was brilliant as to be honest because the fact you could convert items over from zombie to human and have op items was just amazing to me and gave it a bit of diversity on the desert map. I also disagree with you as barrier blocks need to go, as gliding over to another place is actually a quite good way to win the game. It's also not impossible that you won't win either, as plenty of times I glided from Jungle and got thrown an egg at me and then shot with a bow.

    p.s I want them to reset levels I kinda wanna work my way up again xd

    The feedback is appreciated.

    It is being debated whether to remove the Sharpness 20 Bow and replace it with a different item (Super Golden Apples, Better Armor, etc.) or to keep it. The problem with the Sharpness 20 Bow is that once a lot of people reach prestige 6+, the game is less playable when everyone is going around killing humans with sharp 20 bows, especially with such a small player count.

    Enderchests were a glitch; they were never a feature for the gamemode.

    Barrier Blocks and the rule of "No Phasing to Unreachable Places" was put into place for the purpose of extreme abuse. The game mode was never intended to have people glitch from map to map so they can gain one level.

    I would love it if we were able to glide from map to map again. It may sometimes seem ridiculous, but it added a lot more options for where to go & gave the game flexibility. Otherwise, you just go to the same spots in the current map over & over again & hope that you don't die. That's one reason why I stopped playing.

    Well what about the people without a client? If a reset helps the playerbase, there could be (and already is) more defaults without a client than people with one. It wouldn't be fair to those people, and I find it annoying when people drag on the game and don't play it how it's supposed to be played.
    We absolutely need to get rid of the bows. They 2-shot you and make the game less fun. It's not hard to get to prestige level 6, and it's boring to watch the people with sharp 20 bows easily kill the few people who don't. That also makes it harder for the people who don't to win and level up, they don't stand a chance. With a playerbase as small as we have, especially on Infection, the games are very short with bows. There have been countless threads on removing them, and mostly all of those vote against them.

    Seriously, some people I swear...

    Again doesn't change the fact that it completely ruined the game and challenge aspect of the game. The sharp 20 bow 2 shot nearly anything. You people need to get over the fact that you don't want change. Minetime NEEDS change.

    Guarantee 80% was voting. All you needed to do was vote every single day and you'd be prestige 6.

    Lmao? You see I don't need a bow to carry me. I actually know what I'm doing and don't need to 2 shot everybody to win unlike other people. Which again this is the ONLY reason I don't play human because of the stupid sharp 20.

    Again you keep disagreeing with making the game fair for everyone. You just want everything overpowered. The game needs serious balancing and making everything overpowered for the infected and human doesn't solve it.
    This is the dumbest thing I've read. Map jumping was made disallowed to not have games last an eternity and a cheap way to win. Hence why the rule where you can't go where normal players can has been put into place.

    only thing everyone can agree on.

    Everyone need to stop trying to keep the aspect of the game that make me and multiple other people quit infection, it's not fun, boring, and quite cheap. I can elaborate more on this if you wanna disagree with what I say. Try seeing it from my perspective and you'll understand how discouraging it is. Infection won't grow if people like you just want to make it boring as hell.

    I get the sharpness 20 bows thing, they are overpowered & I would not be upset if they were removed, but I completely disagree on the idea that Minetime needs to change from what it was before. It already did that. Just look, people cannot glide to other maps because of barrier blocks, they also don't have the ender chest. Ever since that changed, the amount of players went down considerably.
