PVP HAS BEEN INDEFINITELY SUSPENDED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE!
It has come to our attention that allowing pvp to go on without supervision and attempted plugin supervision is NOT aiding to create a friendly environment. BlockHermit had enabled PVP awhile back to welcome arena builds and some extra activity on top of pure PVE that the server provided. But recently, we've run into incidents of player griefing, hostility, animal abuse, drop griefing, and overall negative receipt of the PVP privilege. And since PVP has been a privilege, it is a feature that can be revoked.
Simple checklist to how PVP can be re-enabled:
Overall minimal hostility between players.
Respect for player animals AND drops.
Mutual understanding of what PVP entails between participants.
Complete obliteration of any wars that are currently occuring.
Disbanding of Sprucebay army, TBM army, and any other armies that may be in play.
Agreement to comply to server grief protection. (ie: drop protection may NOT be bypassed by burning or digging to eliminate possibility of picking up items)
If and when PVP becomes re-enabled, stricter rules will be set in place resulting in no-tolerance bans.
