  1. Okay, obviously I am posting this for the reason stated in the title above.

    Now, I am having a rough guess that maybe 1/2 - 3/4 players are below 18 and cannot attend these mobarenas. If you are a teenager like me, you probably cannot stay up past a certain time. My parents are lenient while some others may not be as lenient. Some kids who play on here are like 11- age group. Most parents wouldnt let their child stay up this late for mob arenas. And most of our players are in the United States am I right? In the U.S., there are 4 Main time zones, Eastern Standard time, Central Standard time, Mountain Standard time, and Pacific Standard Time. Now you could be lucky as a Pacific or Mountain Time person and get to the mobarena on wednesdays. But if you live anymore east and even in Europe east parts, you won't get to participate. And for the Monday ones, the U.S. Kids can fuggedaboutdose because they will probably be in school. Now I am probably being selfish but not alot of people can attend mob arenas. I have a few solutions that could help.

    1: Server scheduled events
    We could have the server on a set schedule like 4 games of mobarena every 6 hours on Wednesdays and Mondays. Have the server control parts of the mobarena and have it detect what's going on, what mobs to spawn then, stuff like that.

    2: Allow trustworthy mods to hold earlier mobarenas
    I notice that the admins host these based on what free time they had. Maybe ones who are active more often can run mobarenas?

    3: Mini Mobarena Rooms
    Okay so, this is like a miniature mobarena specified for only one player. No prize, loot collected at the end and have it reset after each time. 4 arenas, and you do /ma join (arena #)

    Please consider and read before commenting :) K thx bai

  3. I think that there should definitely be more mob arenas. I think that there should be 4-5 mob arenas each set to happen at a certain time in each time zone (about 8 oclock for each timezone). So no matter which time zone you are in you know that one of the mob arenas is at 8 oclock in your timezone.

  4. The reason mob arenas happen so late is because that is the only time Max is free, also I think bigdavie holds one on mondays at 3 o' clock

  6. So basically, the server needs some European, Asian and Australian mob arena staff members. Otherwise it's unfair, eh? US-centrism, man, US-centrism! :p

  7. There's a lot of time zone confliction, then you also have to factor in not that many people are night owls on EMC, so you're going to either have to wait for another Mob Arena, or we can have an automated Mob Arena (no specific time)

  8. I say just have an automatic one therefore the mods or admins don't always have to be on. Just like an extra portal in the spawn that leads to the arena. Have it just powered by redstone or have plugins. :)

  9. automated ones will be hard to control though... When to stop, when to start if lets say a person is getting loot still, etc.

  10. Bigdavie is UK and shaunwhite1982 is an Aussie. I dont think there are enough asians to worry about finding a time for them:p

  11. You see that's why we have redstone. I could make an automatic one without much trouble. Also with redstone, you can make blocking signals and have time lapses. So you can 1min before you can press the button to start again.

  12. How about we just make an empire standard time and schedule them according to that...

  13. That won't fix anything, it will be still be happening at just one time, and people will still be losing out.

  14. That is why we have scheduled days, unlike the kind of rag-tag Wednesdays we have now that don't happen most of the time. We could have some in the morning, midday, night, etc.

  15. Every Monday and Wednesday is fairly scheduled I think.
    And besides, who would run them?

  16. Considering we have so many mods and staff, I'm guessing each one would be in at least the different time zones of U.S., most likely Australia which I believe has only one time-zone, not really an Africans, Asians, or antarcticans, I know for a fact that some live in Europe. I think we could make it work.

  17. Mods can't run it unfortunately, so we can't include them.
    Of the two senior staff who do run it, Max only has time on Wednesdays and the same for Davie on Mondays.

  18. How come mods can't run it?
