Hello everyone, the vets and seasoned members have been thinking up ways to make the city feel more "alive" and to encourage people to visit the city more often. One of the ideas brought up were to build a PVP /Spleef arena where we can host events and such. I'd like to hear your thoughts on this. I imagine that the stadium will be fairly big, pretty much the same length and width of the newbie grinder so it will require some planning and approval in terms of location and design.

Would love to hear your thoughts and ideas. Can't wait to see srm and dann fight (my bet is on srm).

We'd fight in there for your amusement as much as you all wanted. I'd also love to fight pretty much everyone on this server. :P Even if I lose, I will have my revenge!

Anyway, this sounds absolutely amazing Eryng! A spleef arena would be amazing and it would be a lot more fun playfully killing friends in there than on the road or somewhere else.

I've truthfully never seen a spleef arena so I don't know what I could suggest but I am sure others have some ideas!

Personally i like the idea, i think snow as the knock away floor (since its very soft and easy to replace) and plain stone shovels would work as the weapons for a spleef arena. Could be either an open venue or a closed roof structure to keep out the rain.

A think a pvp / pve arena should be a separate venue tho, that way additional hazards and traps could be added, like pressure plates in the floor that trigger dispensors that splash players with poison/slow or even beneficial potions. And arrow traps in the walls.

I imagine it could be built as a duel purpose arena also tho.

We would definitely fight constantly for a while. I mean, we might do our own stuff too but I love fighting Dan. It's so funny. I end up sitting on vent with him and cackling the whole time. I especially love the places where you can hide behind stuff. I've only ever seen a few spleef arenas. But it would definitely be nice to have an official arena to do it so we don't end up doing it in the middle of the portals and then have some random passerby grab our loot on accident. <_<

I was thinking of a multi-purpose structure that would (somehow) house everything. I think having the arena in one location instead of two might be easier for everyone to find/gather at. It would also let us take advantage of the increased world height.

Perhaps anyone who is interested in participating in building the arena can try creating some ideas in creative mode and post pics in this thread, with that perhaps everyone can agree, suggest, and finalize an arena design we can all appreciate and contribute towards. Additionally perhaps make some suggestions on where the arena should be built.

Ray, will you approve the exploration of caves near and underneath the arena, and the construction of a mob system being built underneath it so we can have battle royals vs monsters? I personally would like to see such a system to increase the available games, knowing ahead of time would influence the design i have in mind.

Do we have any mob spawners around the city that are near the surface?

Could be cool to have a duel when someone yells : "Release the hounds!" And mobs start appearing in the arena to mess with the gladiators.

Now that would be fun!

You can even make it interactive.

Each gladiator has a sponsor.

The sponsors are on separate lodges with buttons around them that spring various traps. They have to be carefull to push the buttons at the right times or they could kill their gladiator.

Sometimes add in an archer on each team that are on the far back on each side the arena and make it a team sport.

Arenas? Spleef? Gladiators? Zombie spawners? Traps?

You people are horribly cruel and violent!!!!

So . . I will be handling all the bets on each contest. Winners will receive their winnings minus a modest "handling fee" of 25% for myself as "the House" take.

I additionally will be designing a line of tasteful T-shirts and fan paraphrenalia! LOL

At first, I figured I'd probably just watch; I've never been a big PvP'er. Only played Quake II competitive multiplayer because it was the official sport of another message board I hang out on. But this...

SOUNDS AWESOME! I will definitely watch, but I will probably play, too, because it sounds like too much fun not to try at least once.

The areas I would suggest a large arena structure that wouldn't break any style of the city, would be within the dwarven citadel (any theme), in the Dark Ages area (possibly Roman style) near Ray, or in what I've personally called the skyscraper area (sci-fi style) in the downtown streets near Nek's zone.

Was just watching a video on YouTube and thought of an variation on the Spleef arena idea.
Normally Spleef is done on a snow block surface.
I was thinking maybe instead of snow blocks, doing matches on a field of giant brown mushroom platforms.
That way large areas could be regrown that are broken, there would be various elevations, possible gaps, and the blocks could be broken by hand with no need for tools to be used up.

I like this idea. It beats having to dig up and craft snow blocks, plus all the trouble of filling the stadium back in.
-EDIT Or we could just have the option of both. P.S is anyone working on a design?
