Hey all,

just a quick post to inform you that the latest Mythic Survival update is now live.

Took me a bit longer because lol uni. Sorry about that.
Hey all,

I'm aware that I have been less than active over the last couple days/weeks. I've received a support ticket from a player containing a few questions I thought you all might appreciate the answer to.

I actually haven't done anything on the game in quite a while. The first two videos on it were pre-recorded because I knew I was going to be busy with uni stuff. I had two assignments to do, and had an oral exam in Japanese this week. The last of the two assignments is due tomorrow, and I literally just finished it 10 mins before writing this post. Now I have two weeks of breathing room until finals start, so I'll try and get some good work done on the server and the game in that time.

Finals will be roughly two weeks from 14th May to 30th May. During that period I'll very likely be absent again, but will make a full return in early June.

I'm sorry about that and realize the Easter rewards are long overdue. I'll probably hand them out with the upcoming Mythic Survival update, but before that let me just show you the final results:
  • 1. Andi931 (31 eggs)
  • 2. Elite_SWAGG (17 eggs)
  • 3. 8ohmy (5 eggs)
  • 4. EnderSlayer_357 & 129TobY (4 eggs)
  • 6. Virrrre1(2 eggs)
  • 7. Gladiola & jumpingsquirrel (1 egg)
I've already explained why I've been absent, and while I don't know for sure, I suspect DragonRibs has something similar going on right...

Hey all,

as previously announced, the new mythic item Steel Miner will soon become obtainable in the game!

This update is going to revisit older bosses and take a look at how relevant boss fights are in general, as well as add more incentive for players to fight harder bosses.

A lot has happened since the first boss, Seething Rage, was added into the game. Players came up with ingenious ideas, from building arenas to fight bosses, all the way to building custom boss farms you can afk in. While these ideas are no doubt awesome and require a lot of hard work, the idea behind bosses is to provide an ever increasing challenge in order to get the latest and greatest in terms of gear and special items.

Therefore, in regards to bosses, the following changes will be made:
  • Seething Rage & Frosting Storm: Those two will now only drop their respective mythic item, and no additional special items. This is to still allow newer players to experience the first boss fights and get a decent reward, as well as to allow them to practice fighting against bosses, while removing the incentive for much more experienced players to farm them for cheap special items.
    This is especially necessary since these are the only two bosses which can be auto-farmed.
  • Seething Rage: The explosion no longer leaves behind fire. This is so that newer players aren't discouraged from fighting bosses should their items get destroyed.
  • Corrupted Wisp: Now drops its mythic item, one epic or better, three rare or better and six uncommon or better special items. This is to balance out the loot among bosses, since Seething Rage & Frosting Storm no longer drop extra special items.
  • Warden of Earth: Now drops its mythic item, two epic or better, five rare or better and ten uncommon or better special items.
  • Eric (New...
The April honor reset is now complete. The following rewards have been given out to the top 3 players:
  • 8ohmy: 1,500 credits. (equivalent of 1 month ELITE)
  • fofada: 1,000 credits. (equivalent of 1 month MASTER)
  • Andi931: 500 credits. (equivalent of 1 month VIP)
Honor is now back to 0, so everyone gets a fresh start!

Next honor reset will be June 1st!
It's finally time! As I've teased so many times over the last couple days, here it is: THE BIG ANNOUNCEMENT

Well, what is it? It's right HERE: Dungeons 2.0!

Dungeons is getting its very own standalone game called "Dungeons & Heroes" (provisional name), which works very much like the Minecraft version: You create your own dungeon and attack other players' dungeons!

But instead of having this post be just a huge wall of text like every other news post, here are some images from the game as it looks right now:

A singleplayer-only demo version of Dungeons & Heroes is scheduled to be released in July 2018, so you can get a feel for the mechanics in this new game! A public beta version featuring a fully playable singleplayer campaign, as well as an online multiplayer mode is expected to launch near the end of 2018.

In addition to what you know from the Minecraft game mode, Dungeons & Heroes will feature the following things:

LOADS of Minions

The minions you see in the screenshots are only a fraction of the amount of minions that'll end up being in the actual game. They all have some super interesting and intriguing mechanics as well! Here are some examples:
  • Rat Grunt (Poisonous): When the enemy hero is hit, they take 20% increased damage for a short time.
  • Speedy Rat: When this minion is damaged below 50% health, increase its attack & movement speed.
  • Reaper: When this minion engages in combat, destroy up to two nearby minions with 5 or less health, and gain +5 health for each minion consumed.
  • Cyclops Wizard: Periodically summon two bats to attack the enemy hero.
  • Shadow Rat: When not attacking the enemy hero, this minion enters stealth and cannot be...
Following an incident in which a player was seemingly handed a no-strings-attached Minecraft alt-account and was then stripped of their supplies, a change has been made to the HCMCPVP ruleset, rendering the sharing of account information a bannable offense, with a 30 day minimum ban time.

The complete rule is as follows:
If you are contacted by anyone in-game, on the forums, or on our discord, offering you account information relating to Minecraft accounts, or any other accounts, do not accept and report that offense to staff immediately, either using the Support Ticket System, or by alerting us in-game or on discord.

This is a good time to refer you to the official HCMCPVP rules, so you don't accidentally commit a bannable offense without knowing it: http://hardcore-minecraft-pvp.com/help/server-rules/

Stay safe!
Hey all,

today marks the day of the beginning of the HCMCPVP Easter Feast 2018!

For the entire remaining month of April, you will be able to participate in the event, collect small amounts of credits by playing on the server, and shoot for the big jackpot of up to 5,000 credits at the end of the month!

Collect Easter Eggs & Compete Against Others!

Until April 30th, you can collect Easter Eggs on both Mythic Survival and Dungeons, and depending on how many you have at the end of the month, you'll get a final prize of up to 5,000 credits.

Mythic Survival
On Mythic Survival, you can find Easter Eggs in chests or as boss loot, just like any other special item. They're classified as rare items, so you should see them quite often, depending on your loot boost.

In Dungeons, every monster you kill in a regular dungeon attack has a chance to reward you with an easter egg. You don't need to pick it up or anything, it'll automatically get delivered to you.

The Final Prize
The total number of Easter Eggs everyone has collected is kept secret until the end of April, at which point the top 10 players' final score will be shared publicly. Those players will also receive a reward of up to 5,000 credits, with 12,000 credits being given away in total. You can use them for anything you want, even premium!

Now go get on HCMCPVP and start collecting eggs!
These changes are now live.

Hey all,

it's not the full professions update yet, but spellbooks have already been revamped!

Here's the full details of the changes in this update:

Special Item Changes
  • Easter Egg: New rare item. Available only during the Easter Feast (all of April) of each year. Right Click: Add 10 credits to your account and increase your event score by 1. This item cannot be used outside of the Easter Feast.
  • Spellstone: Removed. Clicking an existing Spellstone will transform it into Depleted Spellstone, which is purely a novelty item. Players with existing Spellstones will not receive a replacement for any Spellbooks they used on it.
  • All Spellbooks: Changed so that they are now usable by themselves. Spellbooks have 5 charges, after which they are depleted and are destroyed. Right-Clicking with an old Spellbook in hand *should* transform it into its newer counterpart.
  • Tome of Arcane Knowledge: New legendary item. Right Click: Increase your Arcanology skill by 1, up to a maximum of 10. This greatly empowers spellbook power, duration & damage.
  • Totem of Safekeeping: New legendary item. If this is in your inventory when you die, you get to keep its contents and this gets destroyed.*
  • Overcharged Ender Pearl: Removed. Existing copies will transform into Totem of Safekeeping when clicked in the inventory.
*note that if you happen to have multiple totems in your inventory upon dying, all of them will be destroyed. Totems do not activate if they are inside shulker boxes.

As always, any feedback is greatly appreciated.
