Game Length: 1-3 hours Players: 4-30 1.9+ Combat
Once the game starts you will be placed randomly on the map, you will be unable to move until the after the countdown. You are invincible for the first 30 seconds and protected from PVP for the first 20 minutes.
You start in the world fresh, meaning you must gather everything you need to survive, seek out opponents and slay them. There is a world border which will begin shrinking after 20 minutes.
Remember: UHC is 90% PVE and 10% PVP, most deaths are caused by the environment or mobs. Be very careful.
Strip mining wont work as only ores in caves will be generated.
For those who are not familiar with UHC, we recommend you aim for the following things in this rough order.

The winner is the last person standing.
Move quick but don't rush. Take your time in the more difficult situations. Tunnel to mobs to kill them. Always act like a fall will kill you. Remember that you have limited health and taking too much damage makes you an easy target for other players.
Choose your battles wisely and play strategically. When facing tougher opponents, ask yourself if the damage you will take from the battle will be worth it. Try to preform a sneak attack when you can.
Aim for enchantments and potions. Each can give you a huge advantage over other players in battle. Be careful in the Nether though as it can be very dangerous.
Pay attention to your coordinates. If you are close to the world border, it might be time to move more towards the center to avoid getting caught by it.
