The Combat Tests are getting better and better. With the fourth Combat Test, I personally feel like combat is almost good enough to be put into Minecraft. But when that comes to mind, I think about what servers would do if it were to be released as it is right now. Many servers would stay on 1.8 because in the Combat Tests you can't spam click.
Now there is a simple way to be able to spam click in the Combat Tests, and that is to use commands to give yourself a high level of haste (for example, haste 100). Or you can give yourself weapons with custom attack speeds. However both of these options don't really work because then auto-attack attacks 20 times per second. Servers wouldn't update because if you give everyone high attack speeds, the best strategy is to just hold down the attack button, and that's boring.
So sadly, spam-clicking will be a thing no matter what in Minecraft I think. So you might as well give it some support: I think auto-attack should be unable to attack faster than every 0.15 seconds. That would give auto-attack a CPS of a little less than 7. This isn't much, if it's too low it could be 0.1 seconds instead. But I think it's necessary for servers in Minecraft.
