    Some Suggestions:
    - guild system, /mz guild create / invite / leave / join / kick. When you become a member of guild, there will be a tag behind the name., like cyclone_43 create The Brotherhood . Cyclone_43[TBH] ,The same guild player will see the same color when he sees his teammates.

    - gapple need 3heart regen ,3 yellow heart . There is no need to change its spawn rate in pot chest.

    - Loot chest ,Don't nerf lootchest again ,That will not make players feel more interesting, it will only make players feel more waste of time. Faster collection efficiency allows players to do what they want to do faster in minez. dungeon chest need a little buff. At the very least, it should be directly proportional to the costs and benefits,Instead of getting chains.

    - fix and balance legendary item, Don't let them polarize. look like therum's strength and Agni's rage (no hit dmg) ,There is no comparison.

    - fix Knockback ,now hitting with sprint same hitting with stand in PTR server,The same Knockback makes it look even smaller than the normal server.

    - banned update or Reset, I quite understand the rigour of shotbow, but it really needs to be more reasonable now. veryone should have a new opportunity.

    - Trash Talk banned , More civilized game environment. When a player is reported and has evidence, he should be banned from 24hour.

    I really like the wolves but I think they can be tweaked a little more. They should work as a pack, as in if one attacks/gets attacked by another entity (be it zombie or player) all the wolves in a 10 block radius should all aggro on it until it's dead. Also, the fact you can turn wolves from hostile back to neutral with a snowball. I like the mechanic when used on zombies but not when used on wolves.
    Their line of sight needs some tweaks too. Sometimes you can just climb on a tree and as soon as you're behind a block they'll go back to neutral. They should have a minimal visibility range where they will aggro on anything that's in a 3-5 block radius from them, too.

    Suggestion - Make high-tier chests have a decent spawn rate again (Because certain locations are basically useless now because it takes 70 years for a chest to spawn)

    The snowball stack size should be increased from 3 to 5 or higher. Since bows no longer take aggro, they basically don't work well for dungeons with huge waves of zombies. Snowballs can now kind of fulfill that purpose as a crowd control item. It doesn't take all of the zombies to you but instead lets you 'stun' a big group and take them out individually.

    zombie spawn is too high, specifically at al hasa. You just can't pvp without getting jumped by too many zeds to the point where its not fun, its just bs and you die from zombies while tryna fight

    • Remove iron armor from dungeon_commons, dungeons such as MotT or other easy ones shouldn't have a chance to give full iron
    • Remove apples and beetroot from civ_common, those should stay exclusively to food chests so you can't stay in a place with commons but no food for a long time
    • Slightly buff the chance to get regular Power 2 bows from mil_epics to the same chance as getting Po2Pu2, as they both have the same amount of usefulness
    • Remove Po1 and Po1Pu1 bows from dungeon_rares. The hardest dungeons shouldn't give a bow easily found in mil_rares, especially if they also have a high chance to give Po2
    • Remove Old Gnawed Bone from spire_fire loot and put it in grave loot. Other than lore purposes, parts of dead people are usually found in graves, no?
    • Remove drinkable slowness from spire_fire and drinkable weakness from spire_earth. Not sure if you can make these into splashes, but they are kind of useless compared to everything else from the spire chests
    • Remove water bottles from spire_water. I want a higher chance at cool items, not something I spawn with
    • Buff iron armor chance from spire_wind. With the amount of pigman spawners there, I need to risk my life for something valuable, not tons of chain armor I can get from any other cave location
    • Buff grave robbing. Make it useful no matter where you are in the map. Perhaps add a small chance for flash grenades? It would be a safer way to get them, but also take way longer than just finding a pigman spawner and farming there
    • Remove fishing. It was a cool concept, but there is really no use for it. If you don't plan on removing it, maybe make each fish give special effects (such as speed I for 10 seconds)?
    • Remove zombie heads from giant drops. It is very nice to have them drop, but it's like having a Lone Sword drop from them. Devil's Respite needs to have a reason to be visited (and no, the Zombie Bow is not a reason)
    • Nerf arrow spawn chance in high tier dungeon chests. Shrine should not be giving 10 stacks of arrows and ~4 armor pieces in 5 chests
    • MAKE CARROTS STACK TO 2 AGAIN!!! They are terrible right now!
    • NERF SPAWNERS! They spawn wayyyy too many zombies and anywhere with them is not worth going!
    I don't believe any of these are too game breaking, and hopefully some could even get added. Also hope PTR is transitioned to live soon, liking the changes so far

    seeing as ptr will be released soon, ill give my final thoughts. Overall, PTR is better than live in terms of pvp, and i like it a lot better. Some changes to make the game harder are nice too. However, you have to keep the game fun. Thats where it falls short. First; making gearing harder doesnt really make the game much harder. It makes it more tedious and less enjoyable. Drink 2s are too uncommon, its ridiculous how long it can take to get a drink inv. Second, in some areas, hordes of zombies are just stupid. I find it the worst in the gravel. You'll be running to a destination and will just end up having to use pots, sometimes splashes, because 6 zombies spawned. Then you have to regear again. Not fun, tedious and annoying. Difficulty needs to be achieved in a way that isnt annoying. Id be ok with the zombies if gearing wasnt so tedious. every horde of zombies can make you have to go reagear again. I think the zombie horde size should be smaller, but with similar spawns. This way, every horde isnt as ridiculous to fight off. You would still have the same high damage and zombies would still be a threat. I would also like to see buffed drink 2 drops. It should not be as hard as it is to get drink 2s. Finally, linger pots are a bit common. Theyre useless for pvp and they make pot rares just annoying if you are trying to gear for pvp, as I would much rather like a drink 2. Overall, improvement from live in some ways, but still has issues.

    Suggestion: Re-add eyes of ender at least until a global chat mode is available.
