Alocto Stadium Part 1 - Gladiator Floor

Over the next few day's i'll be talking about the 5 story PvP stadium that I've been  working on with a few other people.  First off, why Alocto? Well, I decided a while ago that it would be really cool to have a perfect octagon shaped building, but then I figured out that it's impossible, unless you make it really, really big. So I compromised and had the long sides be 17 blocks long , and the diagonal sides be 12 blocks long, making them 16.97 meters in length. (sqrt(2) *12). I was going for perfection, so I decided I couldn't call it the octagon stadium. So Instead it is named Almost Octagon Stadium, Alocto for short.


Today I'm going to talk about the first layer of the arena, the Gladiator Floor. On this floor we exclusively sword fight, with no arrows. The floor is very basic, simply being a large flat area. On either side there is a room with a bed to reset spawning points, and chests to store swords and armor.



QOTD: Do you ever PvP in Minecraft?
