Gontroller PvP Guide

Welcome to the official Gontroller guide! This guide will outline the key features of the server and how to use them. If you are looking for something in particular please search the page using ctrl + f.

General Information (Important!)

This brief section of the guide includes some of the most important information about the server and outlines changes made that may affect what you decide to do. For all uptodate server additions and changes please take a look at www.gontroller.com/guide

Block Protection Changes
In order to limit 'unraidable' bases the following blocks will be destroyed when hit by 3-4 blocks of TNT. This ignores water/lava protection.
  • •  Obsidian
  • •  Fences
  • •  Iron bars
  • •  Glass panes
  • •  Fence gates
  • •  Netherbrick Fences
  • •  Cobblestone fence/wall
  • •  Brewing stand
  • •  Anvil
  • •  Enchantment Table
  • •  Cocoa Beans
  • •  Spawners (A donator must be within 9 blocks x/z)

ALL blocks will act as full blocks when hit from the side by sand or TNT entities.

Claiming Land
Anything that is within four chunks of something claimed as 'GontrollerSpawn' is likely to be regenerated at any time. This includes claims at both the main spawn and each of the portals. We strongly advise that you make your bases away from such regions in order to avoid your base being lost in the future.

Faction claims are limited to a 20 maximum of 20 chunks. For more information regarding Faction buffers take a look HERE

The main plugin fueling the Gontroller server is Factions. This plugins allows you to team up with friends (or go solo if you wish) and create a Faction.

If you own the land, players from other factions cannot build/destroy there without using TNT cannons or creepers.

Another core plugin on Gontroller PvP is mcMMO. This plugin adds an RPG like experience to the server, and adds features such as trainable skills, parties and special abilities. The strength of your abilities depends on how high your skill level is in each particular skill. The party system allows you to team up with other people and share exp and drops when training.

gBay is an auction plugin here on Gontroller that allows players to safely buy and sell their items in auction based sales. When you sell an item you will be subject to an auction fee of $250 + 10% of the final selling price. In order to sell an item, just hold it in your hand and use a sell command from below.

/gbay - The base command for gbay, will show some basic help
/gbay s (quantity) (starting price of item) (bid increment) (time item will be auctioned for) - Starts your auction with the information provided.
/bid [amount] [maxbid] - Without specifying an amount, this will automatically outbid the current bid based on the increment. You can also specify an exact bid and a max bid.
/gbay c - Cancels the current auction. Can only be done during the first half of the auction.
/gbay i - Provides detailed information about the current auction.
/gbay q - Shows how many items are currently in the auction queue and what position your auction is in.
** Note ** It is always best to specify a bid rather than let it bid for you as this will stop you paying more than you may want to.

Mob Arena
Mob arenas are small arenas that you can join with other players to test your endurance and fight against all types of mobs until the death. They are also a great option if you are looking to level up your mcMMO skills. There are currently five mob arenas: Hills, Snow, Stone, Nether, AlienPlanet and End. Each one is uniquely challenging. Once you've joined an arena, you have the option to choose one of six classes (sets of gear) to use inside. Just right click the wooden sign of whichever one you've chosen, and click an iron block afterwards to ready up! Once everyone is ready, or the timer has run out, you will be placed inside the arena and the slaughter will begin! Each wave of mobs will get harder, and as you beat them, you will occasionally be awarded prizes. After you've died (or beat the arena!), and are in the spectating room, you can view the leaderboards to see what wave everyone's made it to and who got the most kills, etc. Once you've left, your prizes will automatically be added to your inventory and you can enjoy your winnings.

  • •  Archer
  • •  Warrior
