Hello guys, Christian here. I would like to bring you a blog post featuring Minecraft Ultra Hardcore (UHC). This is the first Minecraft event that I would like to try, it has been something that I’ve wanted to try for awhile, but never seemed able to get enough people to play, hopefully there are enough people in the club interested in some Minecraft PvP (player vs player) that I can finally try some of these games that I have seen on Youtube.
UHC is a PvP style that leans itself to team play, but could be individual challenge too. The reason I used the word “style” is because it changes the core mechanics of Minecraft, and is not a single PvP map, this mode could be applied to any map! What UHC does is change Minecraft health regeneration off. Meaning when you have full hunger bars, you will no longer regenerate health. the only way to get health back is to eat golden apples (gives back a total of 2 hearths, plus 2 temporary hearts) and to venture into the nether to get health potions.
This game mode tends to take awhile, due to the fact that when you initially start caving, you don’t have armor, and as your caving your more than likely going to take some damage, and are going to want to find gold to make some golden apples. With everyone underground PvP seems like it’s few and far between. It is true that you are more likely to take damage due to the environment, than players, but after a few hours (I’m thinking 2 at most) we will tell everyone to make their way to 0, 0 (coordinates) and duke it out. I’m hoping to find a relatively small map so that we can ensure some PvP happens before the 2 hour mark.
If you have any further questions, or suggestions you can email me at Zerlure@gmail.com, or message me on Facebook, or even comment here! I’m very excited about this, and want everyone to be prepared for this event.
