Competition is here! Ladies and Gentlecrafters we are excited to bring you Mineplex's Competitive League. This new mode will reward the most skilled Minecraft PvPers in the world for their skill and teamwork.
In this new game two teams will play in a 5v5 matchup. The game itself is simple to learn, but difficult to master: fight over Iron Ore and other resources in the middle of the map to equip better gear and weapons. As players grow in power they can attack and destroy their three enemy towers. Destroying all of your enemy's towers will win you the game.
But there is another piece to the puzzle. Every 90 seconds a Wither Skeleton will spawn in the center of the map. When the Wither Skeleton is killed it will drop a Wither Skull. The player who picks up the Skull can bring it back to their base and place it on their Soul Sand Altar. After collecting three Wither Skulls the team will summon a mighty Wither that will attack the enemy towers and players. The Wither is a powerful force to determine who will win the game, make sure to pay attention to it!
Also included with this game is our Alpha iteration of ELO which is only available for this game. Players will be placed into divisons based on their skill which is determined through wins and losses. These Divisions are Coal, Iron, Gold, Lapis, Emerald, and Diamond. All Divisions except for Diamond have three tiers that players will need to work their way through. There will be more updates to this to bring it server wide in the future.
This update is the first step in bringing some new competitive games to Mineplex. We hope you are as excited as we are, and look forward to hearing your feedback on the forums!
