    As a player that likes to hang in the PvP area for most of my time, I often hear players with Candy Legend, the highest rank in the game, complaining in the chat; "WTF? I died in 3 hits" or "That is just too OP." 90% of the time these players are complaining about sharpness 100. Players that spend 200 dollars on a rank do not deserve to get obliterated in 10 seconds.

    I see two possible solutions to solve this problem; cap sharpness at 60 or give a significant buff to armor. Considering these two options, we must understand that buffing armor would encourage power creep. Power creep is a video game term that describes the balancing process where you buff one thing to subdue another. This starts to become a problem in OPBlocks when players have to pay for a sharpness 100, soulbound, and prot on all of their pieces of armor.

    One major problem that will inevitably occur are the players who already own a s100 sword. For this I look to the recent changes made on the Soulbound enchant. When this change was first announced on the discord, players were already dissatisfied before the change even occurred. They don't want to lose all of their hard earned enchants! A few weeks into this change, I can tell you from personal experience that without having to worry about players dropping down with nothing but swords and whittling down my armor, I am enjoying myself more in PvP. I believe that in time these players with s100 will get over their loss of enchant. I cannot imagine 3 shotting your enemy is fun for either side of the sword.

    Most of the players in PvP, including the ones on top, can agree that the current state of fighting is broken. Whether it being power 14 bows, strength pots, or s100 swords PvP just doesn't seem to be fair. I'm not saying we should revamp PvP entirely, but signing this petition is definitely a step in the right direction.

    Listen, I understand that you might be frustrated with this. But hear me out. There are players who love to PVP, and they would do anything to make sure that they have an advantage over any player. Since they want to do this, they will make sure to max out their sword. This allows them to grind for this weapon which also gives them something to do if they do not like to mine or parkour. If you really want to voice a concern, feel free to message one of the owners on Discord. Whatever happens with this issue, there will be certain people who will be upset, so I guess we need to find a balance that would suit every player.

    No this makes absolute sense finally lmao. In PvP weapons and armour need to be balanced. Sharpness 100 breaks Super sets in like 10 seconds with strength. That does not make sense whatsoever.

    Think about it this way. People won't wanna go into pvp to get 3 shot, they wanna go in to get an actual fight. Yeah it'll never be truly fair but there's more fun by capping it at 60 then more people will wanna go in more often. It's more of a ripple effect that must begin with lowering the cap

    honestly the pvp on the server is beyond redemption if you can get sharp 100 swords. why would you even be able to get over sharp 20? lol. now add the OPB lag and slowness poison blindness wither freeze and nausea and you get the worst pvp experience possible

    Ok I agree with having to grind to max your sword but with sharpness isn’t the way to go. Imagine members who can’t get tokens as fast vs Ranked with max sharp, one shot. That isn’t fair, pvp should be more balanced and capping sharpness at 60 is a closer step to that.
