    Hello everyone!


    KitPVP version 3.0 has been released after more than 2 months of hard work! Together all of the staff have put 500 + hours into this update, which is really impressive considering all of the staff have school and/or jobs to manage.

    Here is the trailer:


    Before you complain about 1.9 you need to at least give it a try, and there are several reasons:
    • We have removed the 1.9 hit cooldown/delay in every game (except for "Talent" for those that actually want it)
    • 1.9 has a lot of new features that improve gameplay, notably duel wielding, new arrows, the elytra, and lingering potions.
    • There will be fewer hackers in 1.9 due to the hacked clients being targetted towards the more popular 1.7-1.8 versions, and 1.9 is fairly new and internally changed making it harder for them to make hacked clients work effectively.
    • A lot of the users have joined and are okay with what we have done to it.
    • If it lags you, use optifine.
    • Lots of bug fixes and performance optimizations will come with 1.9.3 and beyond.
    About KitPVP version 3:

    This update has two parts, FFA and battles.
    • FFA is a continuous game where when you die, you just go right back. We have made it easier than ever to get back into the arena!
    2016-04-14_20.05.23.png
    • Battles is a more controlled part, where both teams are teleported at the same time. Battles are much more diverse. Battle sizes are currently 1 vs 1, 2 vs 2, and Party vs Party.
    2016-04-28_01.31.01.png
    Types of battles:
    • Basic: A normal game, much like the old KitPVP. The kits are very diverse and the hit cooldown is disabled. This is the type of game FFA is.
    • Talent: Just like "Basic", but the hit cooldown is set to default.
    • Soup: This is a battle that tests how fast you can change inventory slots.
    • OP/OverPowered: A very overpowered battle, with diamond everything.
    • Potion: A battle where you use potions to heal yourself and make you more powerful.
    • Parkour: A cool battle where you need to make sure you don't get knocked off while trying to PVP the other player.
    • QuickHG: A very controlled version of HungerGames/SurvivalGames.
    • BuildUHC: A game a lot like a very mini version of "/server uhc". You don't regain health, it's very overpowered, and most importantly you can build and break some blocks! (Inspired by Badlion, added due to demand, some credit goes to them)
    Ranks:
    In this update, there are two types of ranks, ELO ranks, and your progress rank.
    • ELO ranks are shown by your color in the chat, and it is based on your ELO (Score) in ranked battles.
    • The other type of ranks are progress ranks. They are what we have in KitPVP version 2.3, with /rankup to go to the next rank. This is shown by your chat prefix.

    Other information:
    This update is completely custom coded by myself (lizardfreak321) and tspringst33n. Being custom coded allows us to make it work exactly how we want it, making it so ShadowXCraft is more unique than other servers. Being custom coded also means that once we release an update, we can continue improving it! Before, we used pre-made plugins, and they normally don't change, making it harder for us to improve the old versions of KitPVP.

    New maps are built by @Hungry_Barbarian and several other players. Every part has its own map for diversity!

    The old KitPVP (2.3) has been moved to "/server kitpvp8" and is no longer supported. We can no longer guarantee it will be hacker free (Go to the new KitPVP if you see a hacker), nor can we guarantee it will be bug free. This version has been improvised ever since we started KitPVP 3.0, since KitPVP 3.0 was designed to replace it.

    KitPVP has been released for 24 hours and so far the majority of people have liked it! We hope you do too.

    I love thise update! People finally can 1v1 or 2v2 with different kits. In my opinion, this is one of the best updates yet. Just add a few more kits for free for all, and I bet everyone will like it.

    Lots of players are playing it, even though it's 1.9 and not 1.8! Here's a screenshot I just took in FFA while spectating.

    Retired is not an active staff member, that is why you are not on the "Staff Online" list.
