    Getting Started

    To begin with you will have to connect to the server play.hivemc.com or if you are a premium user connect to the ip premium.hivemc.com.
    If you want more information on general server information then please read through this thread:
    http://forum.hivemc.com/threads/welcome-to-the-hive-getting-started.235380/

    Next you have to click on your compass (located in slot 1 of your hot bar) and click on the SkyGiants gamemode aka the Zombie head.

    [​IMG]


    Basics Of The Game

    There are 4 teams of 6 players (Magenta, Gold, Green and Blue), these teams have to fight in a SkyWars style arena to defeat the other 3 teams. Every team has its own individual Giant which the other teams have to kill, once the Giant is dead the team whose Giant has died will be eliminated from the game. Each team has a merchant which they can buy items from and there are also buffs that you can obtain to help your team reach victory.

    Also just as a small note once you join a game you can select a team by clicking on the white stained clay, it will bring up a menu that looks like this

    [​IMG]

    Once you are on this screen you can select from whichever team you want or you can click random team which will put you on a random team.


    Objective:
    The Objective of the game is to be the last team with your giant alive. To achieve this goal you have to kill the other teams giants.
    Picture of a giant:
    [​IMG]

    The information section on the right side shows you a lot of the information you need to know:

    [​IMG]

    The Giants health shows how much life each of the teams Giants have, once it reaches 0% the Giant will die and the designated team will be eliminated, the information tab will also clearly show the Giant is dead by putting DEAD next to the team name. The Beast Spawn shows how long until the buff in the centre of the map spawns which I will talk about next.

    To start with there is a smaller objective in the centre of the map, this objective will look like a mob, each mob will give you a different buff (all 3:00 duration) and a small amount of gold.

    Iron Golem (Talos) - Resistance & 1000 gold
    Guardian (Hydros) - Extra Health & 1000 gold
    Spider (Arachne) - Speed & 1000 gold
    Horse (Centaur) - combined resistance of the heroes that have died before you & 1000 gold

    Also even though it isn't located in the centre a Giant will give you regeneration 3 (30 seconds) & 1000 gold if your team kills it, plus if the game reaches 20 minutes then damage to Giants is x2.


    Kills

    If you kill a player you will gain a small amount of Gold (250)

    [​IMG]

    Once you have killed 3 people in a row then you will be on a rampage, this means people will gain 400 extra gold if they kill you plus you will have wanted above your head.

    [​IMG]

    Note that If someone kills you while you are on a rampage then that is called a Shutdown.

    Land

    Another useful part of information is above your hot bar. This will show you what part of the map you are in, your gold and your kills. There are 3 types of land, in this example we have destructible land meaning you can build on and destroy this land.
    Example:

    [​IMG]

    Other than Destructible Land (which means you can destroy all the blocks in this area) there are also another two type of land.

    Protected Land can be found in the centre of the map and none of the blocks in this area can be destroyed except for ores which will be explained later.

    [​IMG]

    Sacred Land (Found at each of the Giants and in the centre of the map where the smaller objective spawns), this land can not be destroyed just like protected land however Sacred Land is used to show the designated location for the objectives.

    [​IMG]

    Commands

    there are also some special commands that will help you in game, one being /recall. /recall takes you back to your base after 5 seconds of standing still, this command is normally used if your giant is under attack.
    Another special command you can do is shout, once you are in a game you will automatically be put into team chat. If you wish to go into global chat aka shout then you have to put an ! before your text.
    Eg: !Shout
    and it will appear like this to everyone else in the game:

    [​IMG]


    Ores
    Gold Ore - Drops random weapons and armour
    Iron Ore - Gives you resources
    Lapis Ore - Gives you a random potion effect
    Diamond Ore - Gives you diamond gear
    Redstone Ore - Gives or takes a heart of health
    Emerald Ore - Gives from 1-2 levels and lapis
    Gold Block - Gives 80 - 120 Gold

    Merchant

    The Merchant is a helpful NCP that is there to assist each team, you can buy many items from The Merchant which will boost your teams chances to win. Here is what the Merchant screen looks like:

    5x Yellow Banner - 100 Gold
    5x Blue Banner - 100 Gold

    Special Items

    Respawn Beacon - 500 Gold
    Using a respawn beacon will alter YOUR spawn location, this means you can place it down and spawn a fair distance away from your base (this also works for /recall). Other teams can however destroy the beacon, even if you hide it the other teams can still find it from the slight hum it generates.
    Sentry Turret - 4000 Gold
    The sentry turrets will shoot arrows at nearby enemies critically damaging them on each hit, each kill it obtains will go towards the owner of the turret. The turret has 12 health points and therefore can survive 12 hits once taken down to 0 the turret disappears. Also as a small side note the arrows cannot be picked up.
    Trip Mine - 150 Gold

    A trip mine look like a iron pressure plate and is an easily obtainable defensive item. It will only deal damage to enemies when it explodes however if the enemy is to mine away the pressure plate it only deals 1/2 heart of damage

    Also I would just like to state that you can obtain gold through destroying objectives, ores and you are also slowly given gold over time.

    Point System

    Kill - 10 points
    Shutting down a wanted player - 20 points
    Rampage - 25 points
    Small Objective Kill (Spider, Golem or Guardian) - 50 points
    Win - 250 points
