    Hi everyone,

    Just a quick handy tip - if you're going to add a comment about "I agree" or "I disagree" to this post (and others) please feel free to elaborate on your position. The feedback site is not designed for petition posts (we can pretty much tell a lot of you agree because that's what the vote button is for), and the comment area should be used for discussion.

    To be consistent with other "super popular posts", going forward, simple +1 and "I agree posts" (and similar) will be removed. 

    Thanks!

    +1(0000000) This VERY highly requested! Add a way, maybe something like a gamerule, to bring back the old combat! Thanks!

    I think that we should go back to the 1.8 combat because it is way more fun and it does not get in the way of the building side of the community, this way both sides will be happy.

    When we talk about "bringing back 1.8 pvp" to the newer versions I think that that implies shields would need to get reworked to allow blockhitting.

    This will not help at all. Why don't we just add gamerules for everything? For the hunger bar? That was a big controversy back then.

    Minecraft needs to look to the future, not go back on their decisions. This is not a suitable compromise.

    Look, I do think this is a decent idea, even though I quite like the new PVP. I just want to point out that there are a ton of other ideas on this site that are getting a fraction of the attention this is getting and I find that disappointing. People, go explore other ideas on this site, please, there are lots of good ones!

    so you're basically saying that almost half of the community needs to transition to a hugely slower combat system (which I admit I do also like) just because the devs "need to look into the future"?

    The reason this is getting such a huge amount of support, is that the pvp community, (which mostly plays in 1.7-1.8) want a way to still be able to have the old combat mechanics (while ALSO keeping the new ones in the game) in newer versions of the game.

    Bring back old pvp, the way AntVenom suggested. It is literally 20 lines of code to add a gamerule to allow both combat styles to be in the game, because many people like the new mechanics. Pls fix this, its been like 2-3 years

    This should definitely be implemented primarily because it is so incredibly easy to implement.  All that needs changing to revert to 1.8 pvp is a couple lines of code.  People have already made very simple mods that do just that, proving how easy such a change really is.
