Everyone knows the pvp community is split with 1.8 and 1.9, with the upcoming pvp update jeb is working on this will hopefully get less but I feel like a easier and better solution would be to add a gamerules for pvp.
/gamerule pvpVersion <version>
version could be set to 0, for 1.9, 1 for 1.8 and 2 for 1.7
This would use all old pvp related code so things like blocking, blockhitting, w-tapping and old knockback are back in the game. Perhaps instead of a gamerule you could also apply this to individual players.
I believe this would be a great way to get people to move to the new awesome updates instead of lingering on outdated versions. Server's like Hypixel could benefit greatly from this because they can finally use the new blocks and items to make their gamemodes even better.
I really hope you add this as a feature of upcoming combat update because there are bound to be people disliking it.
Good bye and good luck with 1.17 ;3
