Micro Battle, also known as known as Micro Battles, is an Arcade minigame on Mineplex that was released on October 17th, 2014. It was released as a Beta minigame on August 26th, 2014. In Micro Battle, teams of players must fight each other while making use of limited resources.
|“||Small game, big strategy!|| |
There are four teams: Red, Yellow, Green, and Blue; players are split as evenly as possible into each team. Alive players are listed on the right side of the screen with their appropriate team color. So far, maps always follow the pattern of a small, circular sky island, with a cross-shaped body of lava in the center that is three blocks wide in all directions. The lava extends all the way to the island border. The lava divides the island into four sections, one for each team and their respective color, along with a small building that goes with the island theme.
This game imbues players with a sense of challenge, as all of them have to make do with very limited resources; this continues throughout the round. The point of the game is not so much gearing up to fight the enemy, but to strategically defeat opponents with what players have.
When the timer counts down and the game starts, a three block tall wall of glass panes (stained in any color) blocks access to the lava river and the other players' bases. Players have 10 seconds before the glass pane wall disappears and players are free to attack each other. It is a good idea to gather resources (dirt, sand, gravel, stone, etc.) before the 10 seconds are over in order to construct cover and various other structures. In this game, players cannot craft, smelt, or do anything of the sort.
Over the course of the game, the island where the players are on will slowly break apart, starting from the edges and "eating" towards the center. This is done by making the blocks from the edges slowly fall into the void. As the island gets smaller, the rate at which the island breaks apart gets faster. Eventually, there will be nothing left but floating lava, assuming the game lasts long enough to get to that point.
The game ends when all other teams have been eliminated and there is only one team left standing, regardless of how deteriorated the island is. There is also no time limit.
All kits in this game are free.
|In-Game Description||Inventory||Special Ability||Kit Tips||Notes|
Fletcher - Receive 1 Arrow every 20 seconds. Maximum of 3.
|Conserve your arrows. Since you get arrows at such a slow rate, only shoot someone when they are near the edge of the map, near the lava cross, or being ganged up by a large number of players. This way, you'll be able to dispatch a single player with only a few arrows.||This kit is equipped by default.|
|HE LIKES TO FIGHT!||
||Iron Skin - Take 0.5 less damage from attacks.||Fighters are more inclined to melee, as they have the Iron Skin perk. Skilled players can use this fact to easily perform assaults on opposing players.|
||None||Workers are better suited to collecting resources because of their tools. As such, players with this kit should work on building defenses and other constructs.|
General Tips Edit
- Skilled players may jump over the lava river in order to invade others' bases. However, if players are not sure about their safety, they may find it wise to construct a strip of land across to the other side and walk on that instead.
- Players should pick off players individually to avoid being ganged up on that player's team members.
- If a battle is happening between two players, they should wait until one player dies, then move in to kill the other weakened player.
- If you are one of those players who want to stay alive for as long as possible, the Worker kit is recommended.
- You can dig down (not straight down, as this could result in death) and camp under the ground while crouching. Then you can dig your way to the mid, so when the map crumbles, you will survive until the crumble reached the mid of the map.
- You can also camp on your tower (this is less recommended as the map crumbles, and the towers happen to be placed very close to the edge, making it easy for archers to pick you off as well).
- You can build up very high after getting enough blocks and build to the mid. This is the best tactic if you can make sure you don't get hit by arrows. Since at the very end all blocks will be removed, you will be the one which falls the longest if you have build up high enough.
- If you want to get the First Blood reward, get 3 blocks as fast as possible and build up so you are able to jump over the glass. This allows you to be the fastest player at another team, then you just have to eliminate one player really quickly.
- If you don't want to get shot on your tower, simply get some extra blocks to build a small barrier.
- Since Ghosting is allowed in Micro Battles, you can help your teammates when you are dead by telling them where the others are and what they are doing. This could result in your team winning and an increased gem and shard loot.
