Raid Arena (Competitive kitPvP)

Are you tired of PvP maps that can be boiled down to two players in diamond armor fighting on flat open terrain in a battle to see who can click the fastest? Yes? Well I have the map for you: Raid Arena. Raid Arena is a kitPvP map like no other. Games involve lots of strategy and planning to win. The game is best played with 2-4 players; however, it can support up to 8 players at once! Pick from 30 unique kits to play on a large variety of maps. Players can upgrade their kits gear after each round to keep it exciting. First player to win 8 rounds to win the game.

Looking into the future.

We’re finally here: the very last update. It’s been fun, I’d say, to make this map. It’s definitely my best map by far. While it started as a small side project with only four kits, Raid Arena grew to become one of my most ambitious and impressive maps I’ve ever made. And now after over two years of development, I’m ready to move onto my next map. I started development on it a couple months back and I even have a prototype of it out right now. I stopped working on the project because Raid Arena was just more important at the time, but now that Raid Arena is no longer being developed I will again put my time into it.

But that map won’t be ready for a while. I’ve come to realize that despite the benefit that constant monthly updates brought to Raid Arena, it took a toll on me and I don’t want to do it anymore. I plan to “release” (technically it would be an update) Raid Zombies as one big map first and then decide then if and when I want to update it.

But all that’s all future plans, and I think it’s best if we spend this time reflecting on Raid Arena instead. So how was this map? Was it any good? I’d like to think so. Sometimes I look at Raid Arena and feel as if it is an absolute mess, held together by only duct tape and prayers, but there are other times when I look and see how far it has come from the map's small beginnings. I don’t think that Raid Arena’s perfect or that it’s even all too impressive compared to what other people have made. The map never got any popular either, the most amount of downloads I’d ever gotten from an update was 1,400 and that was over a year ago. Even my previous maps were able to get at least 2,000 downloads without much trouble despite being lesser than Raid Arena. But I never made Raid Arena to be popular or to even be any good for that matter. I made this map because it was fun, and I stuck around with Raid Arena for so long because I enjoyed making it.

I don’t know when my next map will be ready. I don’t want to work on it because I feel pressured to (like I did with Raid Arena sometimes). Currently I think it would be best to live a little before I come back to making maps. I’ll always love making them, though, and while I may not be as active as I have been these past two years, I will always cherish the time I spent on Raid Arena.

Just wanted to mention, Dripstone class doesn't start with the pickaxe and that I can't see Lapis in the kit selection menu
1
Also I think purpur's special item is broken
1
I don’t know about the Lapis bug, but after checking I found the Purpur bug and Dripstone mistake. I will have a bug fix update out soon, thanks for letting me know.

can u turn it on
1
The realm? It's not worth it, sorry. Plus it's stuck in the 27.0 version

fair enough, I went and threw a book there. Did you see it?

why chatgpt, make the description shorter, and more readable. nice map btw
1
I probably should update the description. At the time, I didn't really know how to describe Raid Arena very well and it sounds a bit off because of that!

To answer your question, the description on the page was written by me, but I used AI to help.

Edit: I finally got around to making a new description. No AI was used this time!

I like your map, but it is a small map, I think that one command is filled with functions. So Great Map and great idea!

Very good! quality map. I hope you have solved the problem of teleporting to meaningless places on the map👌

when i start zombie round for any map it spawns 1 zombie i kill him i get 1 emerald and thats it i wait like 10 min nothing happened what i need to do to get another zombie spawn?
1
The emerald is supposed to die WITH the zombie. It's how the game keeps track of how many have died. I've tried to recreate this bug but cannot seem to. Try lowering your render distance or other settings to make the game run smoother. If it still happens to you, just drop the emerald on the ground and the game should move onto the next round.

I have 28 render distance i dont think it affects to my game cuz i have no lags perfect 120 fps even with maximum graphics set in settings so i will try to drop emerald in another game thanks for replying to me

Hola podrias hacer un mapa de pvp con el addons de masked world decade?? Es un addons de kamen raider y seria especial para pvp increibles.
1
No sorry, I like to make maps only with things that I have made
1
The kits look amazing but the map is very small. A choice of maps with some bigger ones might be more engaging
1
I find it harder to come up with new maps for Raid Arena but the main reason why the maps are so small was because I trapped myself in with commands and waiting rooms that surrounded the play area. Luckily though I recently moved everything around so I now can make larger maps!
1
The realm spawns you in the wrong location. (or a weird lobby?)
1
Does it have zombies and a large chest with a bunch of gear?
If so someone just went to the firing range and forgot to exit.
You can always reset the map (and make it go back to the lobby) by dropping the magma cream in your inventory. I have command blocks that state this in chat every minute; did you not see them?
