Should there be ranked skywars??


  2. NO!!!!

  1. Ok for me Im really good and considered a "sweat" often Im faced with the last player sitting on his island. So I propose RANKED SKYWARS you could get a specal tag in skywars lobbies and get placed with the better players for a over all better time for some not as good people and the really hyper good sweats.

  2. I think someone suggested this for cake wars and people liked it I believe. Honestly I wouldn't mind a ranked gamemode. It would make it more competitive and make me play mineplex again. I don't see too much problems really except hackers. Skywars is very notorious for having the most hackers, which means all the people at the top will just be hackers. It will get to a certain point where its just going to be hackers you're going against. Try adding to your thread a solution on how to deal with hackers. If you can come up with an answer to that then I'll 100% agree with you

  4. Hello!

    I am a bit against this idea. Skywars is a great game and it would be great idea to promote competitiveness in Skywars and display more appealing to some. However, I disagreed with this idea, semi relating it to CW, because of the lack of players that would be able to uphold the game. CW is split into two different versions already (CW2 vs CW4), Skywars additionally having two different versions (solo and teams). With the separation into another subdivision, it could lead Skywars players too far spread out and leave not enough people in que to start up a game. Mineplex's player count varies a lot throughout the day, the lack of players during some hours potentially not being able to uphold another Skywars subdivision.

    Thank You!

  5. I'm a little late, but in my opinion is that I like the idea, but it affect the player count since it’s a smaller game. My input on this is make it like an event, say for the first week of summer ranked skywars is released and you get rewards depending on how high you rank.

  6. I'm a little late as well, but I think this can lead to a huge problem. If you look at most ranked games, like at hypixel for example, it's the most toxic and cheater-infested game on the network. I wouldn't really like to see that happen to Mineplex.

  7. I like the concept of the idea, which is to bring a new competitive aspect to Mineplex, however, I do not know if that is necessarily good or what the server needs.
    Mineplex has a casual vibe to it, despite the fact that people play games for stats a lot, there still is not that competitive environment that some other servers have.
    I honestly this that this is for a good reason, competitive gameplay always brings toxicity with it, and I am not sure if Mineplex should implement such a feature if it would cause a lot of toxicity, which I am certain will happen sooner or later. Competitive Minecraft has always had that negative and rude vibe and, in my opinion, that is not what Mineplex needs.
    Cheaters also present a huge problem and would be able to unfairly take rankings from players that deserved it fairly, and then there would be the question of "I lost my rank to a cheater, can I get it back", which is a tough question to solve and deal with.
    This is just my opinion though, perhaps I am wrong, however, personally, I like Mineplex the way that it is right now.
    Based on my personal preference and opinion, I will give this idea a -1 due to the reasons stated above.

  8. This overall idea and concept is absolutely amazing, but, there are flaws, and here's why

    #1: Matchmaking time.
    The people on the leaderboards / people who are really good, arent always online and active skywars players 5 days a week, or theres just too little players in skywars. This works for bigger games i,e CS:GO and Valorant becuase their playerbase is so large. Eliminating games such as microbattles, dragons, and mob arena would force players to play skywars, but leave people very unhappy because their favorite game mode is gone.

    #2: Cheating/scripting.

    Everyone knows cheating is a problem in skywars, but when there is ranked skywars, its gonna be a HUGE problem. This is an issue in hyp ixel (dont warn me for light advertisement smh)

    those are just thoughts from a random teenage boy, not a professional.

  9. Not a great idea. This sort of thing generally goes hand-in-hand with toxicity and over-competitiveness which we could really do without. That sort of environment has become prevalent on the Java server and this was one of the reasons leading to me switching platforms.

    As one of the most active SW players at the moment, I can also tell you that sweats/leaderboard players really aren't all that common, so from the point of view of less experienced players, fighting the occasional top tier player won't come as much of a concern.

    For a leaderboard player like me, this would also become a bit of a nuisance if I really just wanted to grind some wins. I'm all for having fair matches with good players, but I can easily arrange that with people myself rather than the server forcing it upon me.

    Having a "special tag" in Skywars would also put a huge target on your back, lol.

  10. I don't think having ranked skywars in bedrock is a good idea.

    To be honest I had seen numerous threads that involve adding minigames that require ranking. Since I am a player for around 2 years after my official join (and Top 100 Global Wins on Solo Bedrock Skywars), I have a lot of experience with solo skywars.

    But firstly, let me break down one point from the first thread, and if I am missing something, then please let me know. After that, I will have to agree on both players about their opinions.

    I am quite confused about what you mean by special tags. Is that something that requires achievements, such as "Top 10 Global Wins?" Overall, I am quite neutral with your idea since people like to see you being entitled. The slight problem would be if that is necessary.

    I have to agree with both @Mothy and @james610. There are tons of hackers in skywars, but you can also see them in cake wars.

    Not only ranked skywars increase the number of hackers and rule-breakers but there can be an increase in toxicity, especially between two strong players/tryhards/sweats. If one player successfully comboed another player, then a player who lost gets angry. Because of that, it increases the amount of workload for reporting chat-breakers (mostly for rudeness-related punishments).

    Outside of these two opinions, I should also point out that it lowers the player database. While there are more players in Bedrock compared to Java, it will make the player database unbalanced between non-ranked and ranked skywars. Naturally, I feel like there are not many competitive skywars players, and a new player would unlikely play ranked skywars. Because of that, there will be very few players playing ranked skywars than non-ranked skywars.

    To conclude and agree with what two players stated, I feel like I would rather leave it as is. In other words, I would give this a -1. Thank you with your idea!

  11. Ranked SkyWars! Copying Hypixel!
    Posted Jun 4, 2021
  12. It's not copying Hypixel.. If you introduce a competitive aspect towards a certain game mode it isn't classed as copying as your adding onto a game mode which you've created or is on your Minecraft Network. For example ranked Cake Wars or ranked Block Hunt. Your adding onto something you've created.
