What made Micro Battles so special was its unique mix of strategy and fast-pace combat, but changes have been made to the game that have diminished that and reduced it to a mindless brawl. It's only two changes, really, but they're big ones. #1: Water is not a suitable substitute for lava in a Micro Battles map, and using water instead of lava puts those who play as strategic archers at a severe disadvantage. Knock someone into lava and they're slowed and set on fire. Knock someone into Mineplex's brand of damaging water, and they take a bit of damage, swim out, and proceed to tear apart whoever it was they were after if they're a competent melee fighter. A map with water instead of lava deprives the game of the unique strategy that Micro Battles allowed by knocking players into lava. #2: Replacing the void with netherrack decay was a mistake. Just like with substituting water for lava, the nethherrack replacing the void greatly diminishes the importance of positioning and map control in the game. Getting hit into some netherrack isn't anywhere near as sever as getting knocked into the void. Micro Battles was a game that centered around the unique world decay and avoiding the edges. That's been lost with the netherrack decay feature. Side note: The nettherrack decay doesn't even work properly. I've had instances where I'm in the middle of the map, and the netherrack reaches and kills me before it kills some guy camping in a tower. Doesn't really matter though. Even if it did work properly, the feature change still detracts from the game. I beg that the team restore Micro Battles to the strategy based game it was. It its current state, it's nothing more than a run-of-the-mill brawler. As the game is now, it's more akin to tossing 4 teams of 4 in a pit than it is a strategic setup. I loved Micro Battles for the unique blend of strategy and action that it used to offer. It was one of my most played, maybe even my MOST PLAYED game over a course of 4 years. I earned most of my gems with it. And as it is now, I can't even stand to play it. I hate to see it fall to this state. I beg the game I knew and loved to be brought back. If the people want a brawler, make a new brawler game. Micro battles is supposed to be about strategy. Please bring it back to that. --- Post updated --- Note that when I say most played, I mean out of any video game, not just Minecraft mini games.
