    Hello DRC,

    As the title says, this is a suggestiontopic to remove or keep shields.

    In my opinion: shields should be removed since this is 1.8 pvp and they can just block all your hits if timed right.

    Please state your opinion below

    Greetings,

    GigantDude

    I will give my opinion after testing it out. But from all I know, perhaps a low durability on shields, so that you can use it in melee combat, but it'll break fast. Then you'd only use it against snipers. Idk.
    I'll try it out, then I'll make my vote.

    I told @Reynout123 to make a poll about this but looks like someone else did it !

    Anyways playerbase wants 1.8 -> shields is 1.9 -> no go

    Vote remove for world peace !!

    I agree, no shields, you can just deflect the arrows all the time, like come on...

    I cannot imitate the behavior of sword blocking in 1.9, so would you rather have no blocking at all?

    If shields are kept can u at least make them have a 50/50 chance for 5he arrows to hit the player? Atleast then it wouldn't be op against bows

    The block-hitting* technique got removed at 1.8, right? If so, then no blocking at all is okay if shields get removed. Blocking with a sword isn't worth anything in pvp with the 1.8 spam clicking.

    Edit: Though I'm still experimenting, I believe shields are okay. They reduce damage, but also movement speed, so snipers only waste arrows, while remaining at a safe distance, while arrow spammers need to be more carefull. against shield users.

    *Block-hitting; Pressing left and right mouse button at the same time to reduce damage and knockback while dealing damage at the same time.

    Bows won't be too op, because they are quiet easy to dodge.

    Ok what the actual?
    There was a suggestion topic a month ago right?
    Some suggested shields some said no to them. What we did, to do good for everyone, was making shields not cheap and put it in 1 free kit. 1!
    KitPvP is new! Not like in the past where you could ez Pz kill non donators. It's more fair. And I don't get it. I did pvp yesterday, got over 130 kills or so, 75% were using shields? What are you complaining about? BOWS. If you want to rek someone like before ? Go closer to him instead of trying long shooting. That's called making a good killing plan and a killing plan B in case plan A doesn't work out.

    That is called PVP. And that's what makes PVP fun.

    How about remove kitpvp , because they don't like it and only complain about it, seems fair.
    These suggestions are to make combat easy for them i don't see any positive things about this.

    ^ How about no?
    Welcome to DRC, where you can apparently not suggest things because the buildingteam will get angry at you.

    Back ontopic: We are currently reworking some of the kits, some might get a tad stronger, others a bit weaker. However, just because we use the 1.8 combat speed and damage, does not mean that we can not use 1.8+ items right? We just try to take the best aspect from each game. And as said by Jelle, since we can't find the one pure way to block hits, we try to do it with this.
    I've seen many 'veteran' players run around with shields, so some of 'you' have already gotten used to them.
