    General tips(top)

    General playing tips from players usually not covered in guides.
    • Always even out your Defense, Attack and Mid groups.
    • If you kill someone with stuff you cannot use/already have, store them in a public chest near your teams spawn or mid base. It really helps! Even a chest full of stone swords helps.
    • Use a golden pickaxe to break the enemy nexus faster.
    • Try to build bridges and tunnels to the enemy bases. Just remember that the enemy can use them too if you lose control of it.
    • If you see enemies on a sky bridge get a bow so you can knock them off.
    • There is an enchantment table in your nexus building, save up your levels for some enchanting.
    • Check your Nexus at ALL times. The enemy will strike at times you least expect it.
    • If you have nothing on you and your Nexus is being damaged do /kill so you will die but be taken back to your base and you can attack the enemies destroying the Nexus.
    • You can use a enemy team's nether portal to teleport back to your own, which is useful after destroying a nexus.
    • Try to get a big group of teammates and rush the enemies Nexuses.
    • If people are stealing from your furnace, use the maps ender-furnace, usually located near your base.
    • If you see a nether star on the ground, do not step on it for 3 seconds as it may be the enemy's scorpio hook.(If it doesn't disappear, it is a boss buff, then you can pick it up.)
    • It's best to rush at phase 5 since you do double nexus damage.
    • Use the maps on the wiki to your advantage! All maps have multiple iron mines and coal mines for each team.
    • Try to find a group of teammates and help each other gather and fight.
    • Always check the sides of the map near your nexus, They could have type of skybasing as seen on the skybase page on this wiki.

    Walls(top)

    • Build them.
    • Its best to make them layered with different types of materials, such as dirt/wool, as it creates a need to use multiple tools to get through.
    • Know that checkered patterns are harder to make and work just the same as their, "easier to make," counterpart; layered walls.
    • Know that a wall will not completely stop enemies, it will only slow them down or deter invisibles.
    • Good for making towers and sniping shots on.
    • Try to make strategic openings for your team to go through, such as at the corner, or it will limit your mobility, and probably get taken down.
    • Check the edges and the outsides for holes that enemy rushers might have made, and repair if necessary.
    • Do not make too many openings or enemies will get through easier.
    • Make walls AROUND your spawn. This way, you can go straight to the nexus during strength rushes.
    • It is best to make them out of materials like bricks, wool, and dirt.
    • For a passage through you could use a teleporter to make it only passable to enemies by building structures (Though this may be a bit hard to manage and a small waste of a Transporter class)

    Nexus Defense(top)

    • Can be different for different maps.
    • You should have at least two people guarding it at once.
    • Watch for skybridges, Tower bridges (or really, any bridge) invisible players, acrobats, strength 2/OP apple players, and obvious things like other team players sprinting around in your base.
    • Make sure to have anti- notch apple and strength defenses.

    Potions(top)

    • Potion ingredients can be purchased from the shop. If you brew a night vision potion then add a fermented spider eye you can make invisibility potions (It is recommended to use Redstone to extend these potions from the regular 3 minutes, to 8 minutes). Take off all of your armor, hold nothing in your hand and sneak to the enemy nexus! Be warned: Once you break the nexus you will become visible.
    • Getting strength 2 and a diamond sword means a one hit kill on any leather players.
    • Regen can be very handy in a fight.
    • Get full diamond and a notch apple and you will be next-to invincible.
    • Beware when using a invisibility potion, if you break any blocks or take any damage you will lose your invisibility

    Skybridges(top)

    • Make walls to stop arrow fire from knocking your teammates off.
    • Launchers are very useful when you use them over an enemy base.
    • If you are a Transporter, place a teleport from the base to the end of the bridge so teammates can get back on faster.
    • If attacking a enemy skybridge, use the Wizard's Whirlwind to knock players off. This will usually pick off the builders and almost everyone except for some mobility classes. (Acrobat/Scout/Assassin/Vampire)
    • Do NOT cover all the platform with blocks, build one block high around your platform to be able to shoot your enemies down who are trying to pillar up.
    • Use Vampire to hijack enemies' skybridge while attacking one.
