  1. I personally don't want a Cakewars Solo mode. I get a lot of people want it, but it would destroy duos. Unless a Carl the creeper poll is done, I don't think it should be added.

  2. That's true, but it would be catastrophic to hypixel :squint::crazysigils:

  5. Yo!

    The idea of a Solo Cakewars mode being implemented has been brought to our attention in the #polls section of the Mineplex Discord. The majority of the community really likes the idea of a solo mode replacing duos mode. I personally dislike duos. Something about the amount of teams and trying to keep the beacons is challenging at times. It also takes lots of contributions to win the game. Replacing duos with solo would be really fun actually. Sometimes I just want to play some solo games, so I usually play Skywars. However, if a solo mode were to be added I could go play that too! It also allows for some fun gameplay experiences. Additionally, I know I've stated previously about removing duos but that was regarding the poll in the Discord. Maybe if we didn't remove duos and add solos the player count in that game would increase or even better the player count on the server. But this isn't always the case. One of the modes might lose a player count which would take longer queues or maybe no games at all. I would love to test it out to the community by releasing Solo's and if it doesn't go well remove duos. Overall I really love this idea and I do hope it gets implemented in the near future! (: +1

  6. Hi!

    I personally like duos, it's full of action and a great way to play with friends if you don't have enough for standards. While solo would ruin duo like you said, I feel like it would be harder for players because people who aren't exactly great at PVP would just sit at their base and fortify, making probably half of the match sitting ducks. I feel like this would take away from the competitive edge but that's just my opinion.

  7. Beautifully said

  8. I respect your opinion, but couldn’t people could just speed bridge over to the not as competent player and then just destroy them? That way, they wouldn’t have time to fortify their base. Also, is pretty common for people to move around in the game as the objective is to eat the cakes and kill, but, like you said, there are always those campers in the games. I agree that duos is fun, but I would like to see the solo version implemented as well.

  9. I think the argument that it would "destroy duos" should be the reason it is implemented. If having a solo mode would kill duos then that means the people who play duos are wanting to play solo and are forced into playing the duos gamemode. When making changes or implementing features your best foot forward is the one that satisfies the majority of the server. A lot of people have been very active about putting a solo mode in place and I happen to be one of them. As I am EU and a lot of my friends are US, I don't really have anyone online to play with for a great portion of my day so I never have a teammate to play duos/standard with. I'm not a huge fan of going in blind and being stuck with a random teammate either as we normally both have completely different playing styles and it doesn't work. If there was a solo cake wars, I would definitely play it. I +1 this idea and it looks to be that a lot of other players do. :)

  10. So I would like to see Solos be added, but also keep Duos. Some players love duos. It can create friendships between you and your teammate, and in a way has less sweats, because most of the sweats go to regular. Me personally, I really like Duos. Solos on the other hand would have more sweats since it is easy to take a 1v1 than a 2v1 if they are alone. Also this would mean more cross-teamming. I know lots of people want Solos, but I think we should try and have Solos but also keeping Duos and obviously having Regular. If duos dies then we can remove it. If Solos, Duos and Regular are having a lot of players play it each day, then we can keep all 3. So for me this a +0.5.

  11. Personally I feel as if CW is very capable of being turned into a game with Solo/Duo/Quad teams and because it fundamentally is nearly identical to Bed wars (of course minus the fact that they are different blocks and breaking methods) it is able to be fairly easily transfered over to add solos. The fact regarding this that is very important though is not that CW is as listed above, able to include solos, but instead that CW is a TEAM game which means that solos isn't something that I believe should be added.

  12. I know there's been a lot of discussion around having CW duos introduced, and personally I am all for it. There are going to be some issues with introducing it, but I see the benefits are a lot better to me than the negatives. It would be so cool to have a solo version of one of the most popular games on the network for a few reasons. The one significant reason I'm thinking about is for people who like to play alone, they'd be able to play all alone without having to depend on a teammate.

    I can understand though that there are issues with this. It isn't as simple as just adding this in as a game mode to the server. It'll take a bit of development time, it may need to replace duos unless it manages to be popular, and those types of things are the issues I'm considering. I would agree that replacing duos with solo would be a good idea, but I know for a fact that there would be a lot of people upset about this and they might not agree with this if they're very heavily into the duos side of CW. This could then lead them to lose interest in CW, or Mineplex if duos is the only game they really play.

    Well, either way there are going to be negatives and positives to any decision. Personally, I am all for having a solo CW game mode variant introduced, the question is whether it'd work with the current CW system we have going on, and if the rest of the community would appreciate this change.

  13. Hey there!

    I think this is an amazing idea and I’m glad somebody has mentioned this. I myself had many instances where my friends were not online and I wasn’t getting into any parties at all. Nice on mate, +1 from me!

  14. The duos gamemode is my favorite out of the current two and I am definitely not for adding a solo mode, let alone with it replacing duos. I don't feel like writing a new post so I'm gonna find and paste in one of my older ones:

    It's a game made to be played in some sort of team. Aside from the gameplay issues, where you could win a game with pure luck and constantly have to worry about capturing beacons and keeping your cake safe the entire time, there would be technical issues as well, for example solving the issue with teams. Would a player in solo be wearing colored leather armor still? If so, would they still be team Red/Blue/Orange etc or just a player with that color?

    Actually, regarding gameplay, the protection of cake would be difficult to the point where you'd be better off just removing cakes (a skilled player would probably find it easier to rush using Builder kit and eliminate everyone one by one by feeding off their generators), but then the game would end up being a poor version of Skywars.

    From: https://www.mineplex.com/threads/cake-wars-solos.114373/#post-396303

    It's not really that well written now that I look back at it so I am going to reiterate what was said. There are several points of focus in CW: your island (cake protection, resource generator), capturing beacons, and attacking other teams. Most of the time in Standard, someone guards the cake, while in Duos there comes a risk with rushing another team with full power. Playing alone, however, makes you vulnerable at all times and requires even greater risks. A late game would be near impossible because when one goes out for a generator or to attack, the other can just pearl to their base while that player is distracted. I'm not very experienced so I can't think of more plausible examples but gameplay wise, it'd be inferior to team modes and would basically be Skywars with cakes.

    If you don't want to play with randoms that much, it's easy to get a teammate just by asking for one in chat, discord or in a specialised community. And if you fancy solo games, Skywars can have long lasting and entertaining action.

  15. There was a poll a while ago in the discord server and it won the vote to be added but it hasn't been added yet.
    Posted May 28, 2020
  16. I agree, sometimes I don't have people to play with, and it's good to just be able to play alone. (I don't play with randoms) +1
    Posted May 28, 2020
  17. +1 when I play regular, I am playing duos. When I play duos, I play solos against duos. (1v2v2v2v2v2v2v2)

  18. coming from the perspective of a top solo bedwars players on hypixel, i think this’d be a great idea.

  19. I'm someone who often solo-queues for the duo version of Cake Wars and from talking to people in-game, there are many people in the community who do this too.

    In my opinion, if a solo version of the game was implemented and negatively impacted duos to the degree that games would rarely start, then I would argue that there isn't much demand for a duos variation at all. In fact, the people who solo-queue, do so because we have to, there isn't another option for us.

    For people who have less active friends, or just less friends on Minecraft in general, I don't think that a solo version would ruin their experience much. If it came to it and the duo version had to be removed, then those people can easily play with their friends in standard. In a lot of cases (if there wasn't a duo version) these parties-of-two would often get put together and could productively work together to play the game and attempt to secure a win.

  20. OMG, You are so right. My team mate always quits in the beginning. Then I have to rush teams with two people and that doesn’t work because both have better tools and armor. I would like for there to be a solo because I’m most of the time by myself. Sometimes, I get on with my friends, but this is only like once per weekend lol.
