    What if we did a huge server event monthly? Like, a battle/brawl game. A copy of the biggest towns in /towns is made, and they are put end to end, so it is one big city. Everyone is spawned in a big ring on the edges, and world border is turned on, and it shrinks inward very slowly. All players are given 1 life and have the opportunity to spectate if they die. All players are given a basic starting kit, full leather armor, 1 wooden sword, and 3 steaks. Inside the buildings are loot chests, filled with different things that can help or harm the players. The players have to battle it out until there is 1 left. The winner gets a huge amount of meebles.
    This is an idea, not a promise, and it is also a suggestion too. Let's see what you think!

    I guess you could call this a "UHC" event.

    Yah @Dragon if you wanna learn about inflation just look at Adam's ego.

    On to the suggestion, I really don't think meep needs more minigames. We have fun minigames that have no population. It would be a waste of time because people wouldn't use it.

    The current minigames pay like 100-500 meebles max. If we had a game where you could win anything over 5000, the entire server would flock to that game. :greedy:People like money:greedy:.

    I promise you, I'm not copying. I'm just suggesting things that I would see myself doing, that's all. Yes, I know the economy sucks right now, however, with anything, prices and rewards can change.

    I will never stop coming up with ideas. You would have a better time asking the sun not to set.

    Let me say this in a way that hopefully explains why some people don't favor your ideas :) I'm not discouraging you from suggesting, so don't feel let down by anything!

    From what I've heard, and correct me if I'm wrong, Meepcraft in history was a towny server. People made towns and played occasional minigames like we do right now. With MeepNetworks and the failure of Hunger Games in the past, people are really conservative about adding new games.

    We need to ask ourselves the following questions:
    1) Will it benefit the server with getting new players that stay?
    2) Will it benefit the server with getting funds from donations?
    3) How many people, based off of our cirrent player base will play this, and how often?
    4) How difficult is this for our current tech team to add?
    5) How will this affect our economy?

    The answers with UHC are obvious. UHC is a game that needs more than just 5-10 players, needs around an hour, and has been implemented in many other servers already.

    1) Not really, as there arw more famous servers out there with UHC
    2) Not really, as it will probably be minor
    3) Very little people, as UHC is very long, needs many players, and not everyone is comfortable with Hardcore survival and PVP. It's simply not as enjoyable as boomo.
    4) I'm not a tech so I can only assume that it's moderately difficult.
    5) The more rewards that are spawned in, the more it inflates our economy, and makes towny less profitable. Yes the current economy needs more inflation but not through minigames.

    So please do ask those questions to yourself and how reasonable it would be before suggesting :) Suggestions are always accepted, however it isn't worth the time debating about it if it's clear that it will help the server.

    Have a good day and PM me if you have any questions:)

    Ps:
    Boomo pays 1000 and it's a good price... Infected doesn't pay meebles at all... I don't know where you are getting the information from lol

    The thing is with Minigames is that there has been maybe one singular gamemode to bring the server any amount of prolonged success, Halo. The mistake that keeps happening over and over is doubling down the bet to another minigame that'll bring the players, finally, for reals. But it doesn't because this server doesn't hold, nor will ever hold, the population who plays it.

    Minigames on most hub servers are played because they are enjoyable for the players, and they get some monetary reward secondary. In MeepCraft, the motivation for playing is the monetary reward itself and without it any minigame would struggle to get populated.

    It's just dumb to keep trying to the same thing, that keeps failing, over and over again. MeepCraft could still hit high populations provided it get it's ducks in a row is ready to radically change it's direction.

    But adding minigames will just take time and resources to make another minigame that sits empty. My suggestion is if you want a variety of minigames - You should play a hub server, because it's the one thing that has been poisoning MeepCraft.

    (Wasn't disagreeing with Natsu, either. :))

    Correct me if I am wrong, but wasn't there another mini game server meepcraft "bought?" Had this castle wars domination kind of thing going for it. I think it also had it's own smash mobs as well. Can vaguely remember it.

    It would've been better if they knew what balance was, if donor perks weren't so op at the time (looks at rocket launcher,) if there wasn't any weapon loadouts but weapons on the map, and if the maps weren't garbage.

    You're right, that minigame is garbage, but it was kind of cool when it first came out and it did draw in lots of new players.
