    Bring this back...

    For those of you who don't know, this is the map that was used for Oldschoolpvp. Oldschoolpvp was removed some time after the summer of 2016.


    It'd be nice if this could replace arena 3, which some people seem to dislike (unless you use stomper).
    If arena 3 won't be replaced, surely it can be added as a fourth arena?

    Nice map... looks hella lit, many will agree.

    Not suitable for pvp in some aspects though.

    A few of the reasons why:

    - The ledge under spawn (slaughter house)
    - The caves (slaughter house). Was a problem on oldschoolpvp too, hence the thread a few months ago by Wurmi.
    - Quite small, and where there is flat land it's often interrupted by a cave or tree.
    - Anvil GUI opens when people soup whilst pointing at them (happens a lot)
    - No way to get back to spawn, arena 2 also has this issue.

    For people who still think it's a positive map despite those things ^
    there's still an option in the poll to add the desert map as a fourth arena.

    Arena 1 & 2, people with kangaroo/phantom are always able to get into spawn (and Arena 1 has ladders that you can parkour your way to getting inside). If you happen to be in an arena that nobody else is in, you'd probably know right away. There's signs to get to other arenas. Otherwise would be good to just relog. Tedious, yes. Combat logging interrupts people relogging aside from disconnection anyhow, I'm fairly sure, however don't quote me on that.

    1) Not all kits are kangaroo and phantom

    2) Not talking about switching arena, most people already know how to do that as you said ^
    It's just that since /kb leave was removed, arena 2 and 3 have no way to indefinitely get you back to spawn. Relogging shouldn't be necessary.

    I fail to understand why we would need to get back into spawn other than being killed?

    Some people are mindful of their K/Ds and/or elo and would rather get to spawn alive. If they have to leave suddenly, they don't need someone to kill them and they don't need to afk out in the arena where they risk dying.

    Also helps if you wanna get insane 100+ kill streaks, you can stay at spawn for a bit if you get interrupted or have something else to do that's more important

    Nobody can /lobby or any other gamemode, then join back to afk in kitpvp spawn? They can't disconnect and then reconnect when they're back on their pc?

    As I said in my edit, you may not have seen, some people may want to get killstreaks. Relogging will clear that.

    He didn't say anything about kb leave, He was talking about jumping back into spawn.

    What makes it unfair? It's not like it's giving you an advantage of any kind in a fight.
    You could argue that you can steak and regen there, but you can do that out in the arena too. If there's a ladder or parkour, to get to the spawn like in arena 1, players can get you if you're trying to run away, so you can only do it if you're actually safe. Nothing unfair here.

    I'd like to see the oldschoolpvp back, I've only seen it once or twice and was very fond of it, plus it might get some of those old timers to rejoin or remember there times at it. Heck I got my first rankup there, and that was great

    So I think that the map should be added as a fourth one, or maybe condence it a bit and make it the challenge map. Rather than fighting under spawn, maybe you could fight in a smaller version of that. Also, I may have not noticed, but was KitPvP reset?

    There is a new map on the way, pretty much ready to be released, however just has to do some tests with it to ensure the kits work fine on the map and things.
