The server has used the changes made to combat in version 1.9 since last August, so we've had plenty of time to get used to them. However, we can easily see what has happened to PvP areas. As it stands right now, Terrarium is almost always empty, KitPvP is a ghost town, and Towny arenas are nonexistent. Simply put, it just isn't fun anymore. I'd like to suggest reverting combat back to version 1.8, without implementing major issues or changes. To start, most combat reversion plugins that are premade are buggy and broken because they're trying to reverse the update. I'd like us to make our own version of this instead. Instead of wasting time trying to reverse useful and practical things like sweeping edge, shields, tipped arrows, and all the rest, why not just remove the attack speed itself? I believe a plugin that sets the attack speed on all swords would be very beneficial to the server and its combat environment. By doing this, we can attract a larger playerbase by appealing to old combat users and the people who want to use the new blocks and features of the newest updates. I'm not going to bother arguing about which PvP is more "skilled," but Meep was known as a PvP server for quite some time. We constantly get people who come back from those days. Making just this little change is very simple to do (can even be done with command blocks for crying out loud), and has an enormous amount of potential to appease players.
