Capture Battles

Capture Battles are a way to bring meaningful and fun PVP into EcoSMP for those who wish to participate without making the gameplay experience worse for those who don't wish to participate. Note: We are still testing this system. We will put out an announcement on Discord letting everyone know the date/time it will actually go live!

How To Participate

  • Town Mayors, Co-Mayors, & Sheriffs can initiate capture battles by traveling to the capture site using /warp capture and then using /t capture.
  • Members of the town that already controls the capture site can use /t defend to teleport to the capture site to defend against the attacking town.
  • See info on capture sites using the command /t [sitename]. Currently, there is only one site named Blue so the command to view info would be /t blue.
  • Note: Keep inventory is on for capture battles. This means players have nothing to lose by participating. Rewards can be gained but nothing will be lost. Don't be afraid to play!

How To Win

  • Attackers/Defenders will see two boss bars on their screen. One showing the remaining time, and one showing the CaptureSite HP.
  • HP is altered by players standing within the CaptureSite's home block. The HP is harmed when attackers outnumber the defenders. When defenders outnumber the attackers, the HP is healed.
  • If the HP stat goes down to 0, the attackers win. If the timer runs out, the defenders win.

Prizes & Rules

  • The town that controls the capture site will receive $1,000.00 in-game money once per real-life hour. This will be adjusted as we figure out how to best implement Capture Battles into EcoSMP.
  • After a battle has ended, everyone on the server must wait at least 1 hour before another battle can start.
  • A single town can only initiate a Capture Battle once every 2 hours.
  • PVP is only enabled inside of the capture site, not in the wild. Only the attackers/defenders are allowed to participate. 3rd parties will automatically be teleported out of the capture site during a battle if they attempt to engage in PVP.
  • Attempting to abuse the system or gain an unfair advantage over other players is against the rules. This can include but is not limited to unfairly trapping other players, bypassing flight restrictions, abusing the wilderness border, and more.
  • Note: Keep inventory is on for capture battles. This means players have nothing to lose by participating. Rewards can be gained but nothing will be lost. Don't be afraid to play!

More Info

  • Players can view a list of all capture sites using /towny capturesites. For now, there is only one capture site as we test this new system.
  • Capture Battles are intended to provide fun and meaningful PVP for those who wish to participate without making the gameplay experience worse for those who don't wish to participate.
  • This system is brand new. We are one of the first servers using it. It will be adapted and improved over time to best suit our needs. If you have suggestions/questions/concerns, please let us know using a Discord Ticket.
