Royal Arena has been released yesterday, but we're not going to stop there! I present to you, the newest upcoming game mode:

Dungeons

Build your own Dungeon

Build your own Dungeon to safeguard your supplies. Create complex labyrinths & traps by using all sorts of building materials. Employ monsters to fight for you and upgrade them with armor & weapons to be more effective! Prove your Dungeon is winnable by beating it yourself, and then release it to the world!

Raid other Players' Dungeons!

Attack other players' Dungeons to steal their gold & honor so you can make your own Dungeon much stronger! You have three attempts to beat a Dungeon. If you die three times, you're out and the Dungeon Master wins!

Gear Up!

Gold is used to get more materials to expand your Dungeon, as well as upgrading your battle gear so that you are more successful in attacking other Dungeons! You can upgrade yourself all the way up to diamond gear PLUS food and potions! And you can upgrade your monsters the same way.

Can you beat mine?

Invite your friends to have a go at your Dungeon. Make sure it's difficult enough by having as many friendly challenges as possible! If someone's currently attacking your Dungeon (friend or foe), you can also spectate them to see where you need to improve!

Dungeons will be coming to HCMCPVP this summer!

The very first season of new HCMCPVP is coming to an end. On Wednesday, May 31st at 8pm server time all honor will be reset to 0 and the top 10 players will receive their FREE Premium Membership.

The handouts will go as follows:
  • The number 1 player will receive 1 month of free ULTIMATE+
  • Players ranked 2-4 will receive 1 month of free MASTER
  • Players ranked 5-10 will receive 1 month of free VIP

It's not too late to get honor! As of the writing of this post, every Royal Arena match you win rewards you with 100 honor. So get out there and get some honor!

Keep in mind that only players who registered an account at this website will be eligible to receive a free Premium Membership. If you don't have one, you WILL miss out!
The long wait is over, Royal Arena is finally open for early adopters!

To play, you need to register an account at this website and link it to your Minecraft account. If you've done that, you're good to go! Smash in the other team and LET'S GO!
The long wait is almost over. That's right! Royal Arena, the one and only Minecraft adaptation of Clash Royale is coming to HCMCPVP tomorrow!

The servers will undergo maintenance on Sunday, May 28th at 3pm server time for one hour, after which the new game mode will be released to early adopters.

ROYAL ARENA

Battle other players head on in this never-before-seen Minecraft game mode! Mine gold in front of your fort and melt it down into ingots to pay your monster mercenaries to march down the enemy fort!

Your Warden Skeletons are destined to keep your fort safe, but you need to help them out! Send reinforcements or join the fight yourself!

Prove that you are a strategic mastermind by defeating your opponent: The battle ends once either one of the players or one of their King Skeletons has been defeated.

Going nowhere? The battle will go into double furnace mode if the game is not completed after 3 minutes!

Be ready on Sunday, May 28th at 4pm when this new game mode launches!


Royal Arena will be released to the general public some time in June.
Based on player feedback & thorough consideration, there have been changes made to the original update plan for Mythic Survival. These changes will be gradually implemented over the next few weeks:

Changes to Legendary Items:
  • Legendary items in your inventory will now be transported to your enderchest once you die. If there is no room in your enderchest, they will be dropped normally.

Changes to items:
  • Uninhabited Mob Eggs will be moved to rare quality. Considering that the only real application for them is to help you build animal farms, it felt wrong keeping them only one tier below the Mob Essence Extractor, which is undoubtedly miles better. This will cause all existing epic-tier mob eggs to lose their function. If you happen to possess an epic tier mob egg, you'll be allowed to exchange it for the new version if you message me in-game.
  • Endermen in The End will no longer drop special items. This is to prevent players from actively farming items.
  • The loot chance for special items will be increased for Elder Guardians (same chance as chest loot) and Withers (double the chance of chest loot). This should make boss fights more rewarding, as a Wither will have a guaranteed special item drop if you're at max bounty.
  • The following items will be REMOVED: Enderchest Key, Summoning Crystal, Lesser Summoning Crystal, Unstable Ender Pearl. The Lesser Summoning Crystal & Unstable Ender Pearl will have their functionality be replaced by commands.
  • The Tracker will have its functionality revised. It will no longer be consumed on usage, but will function like the old bulky trackers on legacy HCMCPVP used to. While holding it, you will gain access to the /track command, which accepts one parameter for maximum distance.

    /track 15000 will reveal all players within 15000 blocks of you, per direction. It is to be noted that although the Tracker is no longer consumed on use,...
These changes have been revised. View the new list of changes here: http://hardcore-minecraft-pvp.com/forums/showthread.php/610-Revised-update-plan-for-Mythic-Survival!

The following changes are not live yet, they will be added to the game on Wednesday, May 31st.

Changes to Legendary Items:
  • NEW Legendary Item: Bedrock Fragment. Combining five of these will give you one block of Bedrock, which is unbreakable and can be placed down anywhere you like.
  • Legendary items in your inventory will now be transported to your enderchest once you die. If there is no room in your enderchest, they will be dropped normally.
Changes to items:
  • Uninhabited Mob Eggs will be moved to rare quality. Considering that the only real application for them is to help you build animal farms, it felt wrong keeping them only one tier below the Mob Essence Extractor, which is undoubtedly miles better. This will cause all existing epic-tier mob eggs to lose their function. If you happen to possess an epic tier mob egg, you'll be allowed to exchange it for the new version if you message me in-game.
  • Endermen in The End will no longer drop special items. This is to prevent players from actively farming items.
  • The loot chance for special items will be increased for Elder Guardians (same chance as chest loot) and Withers (double the chance of chest loot). This should make boss fights more rewarding, as a Wither will have a guaranteed special item drop if you're at max bounty.
  • First-time players will spawn with one Lesser Summoning Crystal, so they can form teams with their friends.
New Items:
  • New Rare Item: Anvil of the Gods. Repairs any special item in your off-hand to full durability.
  • New Item Tier: Mythic. These items are the rarest of the rare, and have 1/10th the chance of a legendary item to be dropped. Just as with Legendary items, these...
Dear HCMCPVP Players,

the Marathon for Royal Arena has begun! If you have seen Spencer23$'s last live stream (viewable here: https://www.twitch.tv/videos/146086898 ), then this news post will be a little redundant for you.

As you already know, one of the planned game modes is Royal Arena, which is a Minecraft adaptation of the popular mobile game Clash Royale. However, before the game mode opens, we need to crack the 1,000 registered users milestone here on the forums. So if you haven't done so already, create an account now!

Once we hit that mark, Royal Arena will be released to the public! Those who registered an account and linked it to their Minecraft account will also get early access to the new game mode, and will be able to play it before anyone else!

Let's make this happen, people! Get your friends to join HCMCPVP and help us get ready for Royal Arena!
The server maintenance is now complete, and Speed Survival is now officially open.

Enjoy your time at HCMCPVP!
The new game mode Speed Survival is now in public testing. Join on hub.hcmcpvp.com and walk through the gate, OR join directly on sps.hcmcpvp.com !

See you on the servers! :)
The servers will undergo maintenance on Sunday, May 21st at 3pm GMT+2 until 4pm GMT+2. During this time, all game modes will be unavailable for play.

Afterwards the following changes will be applied:

Survival
  • Removed some messages when executing commands to reduce chat clutter. Most notably when teleporting to a warp or to your home.
  • The legendary item "Tracker" will no longer announce a message to its victim once it expires. It was either that or move it down to epic tier, and the intent was to keep Trackers as rare as possible, while still justifying their status as a legendary item. Potential victims have to look out if they can see their attacker with a Tracker in their hand, and if in doubt, count down the 15 minutes manually whilst standing in a safe location.
  • A bug causing player kills to be counted multiple times has been fixed.

Core Plugin
  • The core plugin, which is present on all servers, will receive some changes to improve functionality and stability. Most notably when applying player bans.

NEW GAMEMODE: Speed Survival

Speed Survival (formerly called Last Man Standing) will be the first mini game to be re-introduced to HCMCPVP. This is how a standard SPS match progresses:
  • At the beginning, everyone starts near the map center with nothing but a Tracking Compass, which can be used to pinpoint the location of the nearest player outside of a 10 block minimum distance. (The 10 block minimum distance allows you to play in teams, without confusing each other's trackers)
  • At the start of every match, the time of the world is morning.
  • Players have to gather supplies as quickly as possible and eliminate their enemies.
  • If you die or leave the game, you're out. However, you can immediately rejoin the servers, or type /match to be allocated to another Speed Survival instance.
  • You lose honor based on your placement, according to the following...
