    I really like this idea, some types of rounds I am reading from the comments are really amazing. I just really like the potential that it has. Anything can be adjusted and made into some great content. I'd like to talk about this in one of our staff meetings!

    I have one last power round suggestion before I ask to close this thread. This is my last bump, and I will close it before Ben does and add some ridiculous comments about my suggestion.

    Anyone else see MCI getting boring and stale by doing the exact same thing over and over? You log into MCI, see 10-15 commanders tanking in one spot and there is no possibility of beating them? This suggestion will not "literally" get rid of them, but it will keep it to a minimum. There are 2 reasons people are destined to leave.

    1. MCI gets repetitive after a while. After a certain amount of rounds, you'll begin to notice you're just killing off zombies with no primary objective than to just "Survive for 4-5 minutes". And after those minutes are up, a new round starts in a minute and it's the same thing.

    2. Too. Many. Commanders. Power rounds can help degrade the amount of commanders. This really depends on how Ben wants to do it, because I don't think Commanders will want to tank on a power round.

    I've tried in so many occasions to get back into MCI but I just can't! I join for a couple of rounds and leave. Simple.
    I'me 100% sure this suggestions will bring back MCI to life. I don't give a shit about "it doesn't make sense for our server" then fine, have your server die.

    One of the largest suggestions I've gotten from Teamspeak is probably the most fun one I've received. Basically, you survive for 3 minutes out in the open. After that, there is a specific spot in the map that you must get to and fend off the rest of the infected. A new timer starts counting down from 1 minute. If you aren't at that specific spot when that minute is up, you do not win. Only people who were at the spot will win the round. This suggestion was made by the great old @CREEPER__1

    Does this sound like a good idea to you all?


    (Also the power rounds have a chance at the start of a round, not every 10 rounds)

    Did someone say Stale?!?!?!

    Honestly it's quite ridiculous that this hasn't been added.

    Creeper's suggestion is VERY similar to the objective in blocking dead. Survive in the open and after some time you need to go to a especific place on the map and survive there.

    I'm actually pretty sure this may be where he got his suggestion.

    This really doesn't help. Thanks for the thought out comment!

    I remember a mod saying that this suggestion over complicates the gamemode, but I think that it is needed to remove the staleness that comes with playing MCI for long periods at a time

    It doesn't have to be complicated. It's how Ben/Jack codes it in a sense of how complicated they want it to be.

    It's either, add something new or the server will die.

    What about just a separate mci lobby or just a different mci gamemode where they play rounds like this constantly. Like they do that for every gamemode in hypixel don't they? You can call it something different like "Insane Infected."

    Are you saying that unless we add power rounds, the server will die?! LMAO

    I agree that changes are necessary but that's completely false. I still agree with the suggestion though.

    I tripped up on my words there when I said "Add this or the server will die".

    It's more like "Add something new or the server will die".

    Sorry, I obviously don't know how to word.

    This could honestly be the next big MCI update, kind of like the Master Prestige update. Could be possible that this won't be added without advertising though.

    That's a good idea except it would split the community even more

    It could split the community, but that doesn't mean it won't bring in new players or old returning players. After all, there's 2 MCI servers you can choose right out the gate, why not turn MCI 2 to it?

    That also doesnt mean it will bring players back, sure for maybe a few rounds to see what its about. And yeah theres two mci servers, but barely ever have I seen them both with more than 10 players in the state of the server right now.

    Its sad to say but mci will eventually die including lots of other minecraft servers no matter how big they are, its just a matter of time. Players quit not just minecraft servers but also entire games and it is abandoned and eventually dies out, and the main reason for this is the lack of updates that players are hoping & waiting for but they never come and the game becomes repetitive. As you can see by successful games and or minecraft they receive lots of updates bringing new content for everyone in the community to enjoy and share. Players look forward to big updates in all games/servers, they keep them thriving, growing, and attracting new players. However they look for good quality big updates not just bug fixes or small things added here and there. Some games have thrived for many years from just constant quality updates and the same is said about minecraft servers. Dedicated players also stick with a server or game they love because of its uniqueness and how it differs from different games and servers, and this server has mci which is an amazing gamemode that is unique and is like nothing ever seen on other minecraft servers its just that there are people probably everywhere that would love to play this game and stick with the server they just don't even know it exists. I think this could be an update with big potential it might bring some new players and even keep others interested into playing longer. If good updates like this are soon followed afterward I think this server can really pull itself up and increase the daily player count substantially. Advertising would also make a big impact and would get the word out to others who could potentially stay with the server for a very long time.
