    Maybe a win can get you 15 grass and 5 consecutive wins gets you a head or something. Idk mob arena is getting old and all these survival games servers i used to play are all ghost towns.

    Neutral. It has been a unique part of skyblock so I kinda dont want to see it go away but yes mob arena is dead. I was actually thinking of skywars instead of hunger games (skywars does exist but is on a completely different server and doesnt give you rewards)

    No support mob arena is something no other server has its unique its Skyblock survival games is stuff every server has and doesn't represent skyblock in my opinion

    Neutral. They should make rewards available on Skywars (a different server). I feel like mob arena should still be there, not to remove it entirely. Making rewards available on skywars will encourage people to play it more.

    I think we need games that are not resource heavy and can be used on the main skyblock server; perhaps in a new world. Skyblock is where all the people go and skywars is proof that if it isn't on skyblock itself it doesnt get much attention.
    My fave games from other servers are things like draw my thing, colour shuffle, tnt run and simon says.

    I like this idea if we could a /server mini games where you need 5 people to start and include games like parkour color swap and other small 1-4 minute mini games that all rotate as long as you have 5 people and we could host competitions for people to create maps for the mini games every 2 months or so and win like a 10$ store gift card
    This would be a really nice idea especially where you only need 5 players to start these quick minigames

    Maybe a few more minigames options? Or a rotating selection which changes daily?

    Suggestions could include snowball/paintball, spleef and MA.

    I just don't think getting rid of it completely is a good thing to do, because it's not the focus of the server - just something extra for fun.

    No support for removing mob arena and replacing it with survival games, as mob arena has always been a part of skyblock and I don't want to see it removed or replaced. Maybe add other minigames like spleef, etc but NOT survival games

    Neutral. On the one hand, mob arena is getting slightly dated, and in my opinion I think it would be good to have a new minigame in order to win Skyblock loot. I think this would add some variety to the gameplay of the server.

    On the other hand, as many people agree, the Mob Arena is a unique part of Skyblock and does still present an interesting challenge to the players. It is also a lot fairer for all player rank levels as it is not PVP-based, so factors like better equipment for donors, that would normally impact PVP battles, are responsible only for the success of the player and not the downfall of the others. Other factors such as luck (a huge part of Survival Games) are also not as big of a game-deciding factor in Mob Arena, therefore making it a much more skill-based gamemode. It would also be extremely easy to hack unnoticed in a Survival Games minigame.

    Personally I think this is a great idea. If similar things could be implemented into the Skyblock world, similar to how the Mob Arena is, that would bring a lot more variety into ways of which people are able to get resources. It would also allow a bit of a change of style to the server, and it would give new things for players to do. Recently I've spent a lot of time just flying around my island, not entirely sure what to do. I feel like a few more minigames would be very benificial to the server.

    MA is not at all unique to this server alone and there are a ton of skyblock servers that offer it as a mini game

    Keep mob arena but add new mobs to it. Like add annoying mobs such as evokers and players have to deal with the vexes while fighting off waves. Or add ghasts and have people try to deflect the fireballs or shoot it with a bow. Or add interesting mobs like a giant zombie boss. Spice it up in general.

    But I also have another idea. What about changing mob arena to surviving as long as you can? However, this would create a new arena/warp where you can explore it, something like the /warp mob COD map. My idea is that it’ll be a big abandoned building. Scattered around are chest shops of weapons, armor, potions, etc. everything you would need for battle. All the mobs you fight will drop (or place into inventory) some sort of currency to use within the arena (like gold nuggets for example) which you can use to buy and upgrade your stuff. After every wave, there will be a pause until the next wave (like in ma j), and you have to hurry and run around the map to find the shops you need to buy your stuff otherwise there will be swarms of mobs in the way (which spawn in any part of the map). Perhaps add an enchanting room and some lapis so that you can try to add some enchants to your stuff too. Every new wave has more mobs or stronger mobs which would require you to try to get better stuff/enchants or you'd be struggling with a wooden sword and leather armor. When you die, your inventory is cleared and replaced with random item rewards like in ma j or add in a nether star again as well. Maybe add some type of leaderboards to this so people can compete to get better scores than others and then whoever is number 1 for the month gets a good reward.

    Neutral. Mob arena has always been a part of Skyblock, people enjoy, and people do still play it, it's always been something players enjoy about Skyblock. I'm definitely against having it removed.

    Adding extra minigames would be good, but we have to be careful with what exactly we add. We don't want games that are too big and take away from the fact this is a skyblock server: not a minigame server. But little games that players would enjoy like TNT run, draw my thing and stuff. You also don't want games that use too much of the server's resources, we don't want to pile on a lot of lag for a minigame.

    No support. As few others have said, mob arena is unique to skyblock. Adding survival games would somewhat make it mineverse, making the skyblock useless

    No support. If we have time to spare for extra games, I'd rather see it spent on the dead SkyWars than anything else.

    No Support,

    I want to keep the mob arena, but having a Survival Games will lag the server and it will be dead.

    It would be nice to add another minigame (although this isn't a minigame server), but I don't think we should get rid of the mob arena. I would like to see the mob arena revamped and less laggy because I can barely play due to the lag, but we should keep it.

    Disregarding your suggestion for survival games, as it seems very cool, not what i'd see them adding. What if they were to combine mob arena with a better plugin? Such as a siege or defense game where instead of surviving, you protect or control points/yourselves against monsters? I think maybe than making it an event where it happens after everyone's done, it happens by itself every 20 minutes if it was empty and should be something people enjoy and maybe value time more, but gives players a fair advantage (when mob arena starts you get very little time to plan or join) to let other players join.
