I've been playing this game for years, and I've since noticed many glaring issues with PvP.

1. Broken Hitboxes. I think I speak for everyone when I say that the horrible hitboxes are one of the most infuriating things about this game. The broken hitboxes make it so that it's too easy to just run away and too difficult to chase after someone. If I were in a fight and my health ran low, I could just run in the direction of a safe zone and that would automatically put me at a severe advantage when it comes to surviving, and it puts anyone chasing me at a severe disadvantage when it comes to killing me because the broken hitboxes would make it nearly impossible to hit a player that's running away from you. Even if I'm in an area with nothing but me, one other player, and a few mobs, the hitboxes are still broken.

2. Terrible Game Balance. The weapons in this game do pathetic damage. Fire and poison do 0.25 hearts of damage per hit. Even a diamond sword/axe/bow that is enchanted with Sharpness V/Power V do only 2.5-3 hearts per hit. The only weapon that does any sort of reliable damage is Harming II arrows. While 99% of the weapons do laughably bad damage, the healing items still retain the same effectiveness from their Minecraft counterparts, especially enchanted apples. This is catastrophic for game balance because it just encourages people to follow a single gameplay style of PvP, so it creates players that don't know how to do anything besides eat enchanted apples while spamming Harming II arrows in a 1x4 hole in the ground. Make all of weapons do the same damage as their Minecraft counterparts.

3. Important PvP Mechanics are Missing. Where's knockback? Where's critical hits? Adding knockback for players and critical hits would actually make the game require skill when you PvP. It would also make people deviate from just spamming Harming arrows. With knockback and critical hits, PvP would be much more engaging because you would actually need to take positioning into account instead of just running and hopping around freely with nothing to stop you.

Btw, what is happening with the PoC Forums? It's web url is now "netplay.live" instead of "poc.solverlabs.com", all of the forums except the Home and Forum tabs are missing, and I'm not allowed to make new posts (instead I can only comment on other's posts like this one).

Also why whenever you get attacked by a zombie it always does half a heart of damage no matter what armor you wear? With iron armor it’s a half heart and with diamond armor enchanted with prot 4 zombies still do a half heart of damage. What is wrong with this?

Ze assassin YT, I think that's either a glitch, or the developers' questionable way of "balancing" the mobs.
