Ultra Hardcore Season XIV + Minecon Live Viewing Party

Recommended Posts




Saturday, September 28th | 12 PM EST

Everneth Discord



It's that time of year again! Minecon LIVE is a week from this Saturday, and should be packed with game announcements, events, plus a poll to determine which biome gets updated next! This year, the stream happens to fall on the same day that we would normally be hosting UHC, so we'll be adjusting times slightly and making a day out of it. Minecon will begin at 12 PM EST, and will last for 90 minutes. We'll be hosting a viewing party in Discord so that everyone can chat while we watch together!

To join the party, join the Minecon Live voice channel on Discord when it starts. Thanks to Discord's new streaming feature, one or two of our Council members will share their screen to ensure that everybody's stream is synced up. If the number of people in the voice channel exceeds eight individuals, we'll set the channel to push-to-talk mode to keep everyone's ears intact. If you have significant background noise, you may be asked to switch to push-to-talk anyways as per the Discord rules.

As has become tradition, Minecon will feature Jens' announcement of the next game update's theme, a poll to decide which biome gets updated next, and five panels hosted by members of the Minecraft community. The panels will be uploaded on YouTube after the stream is over - if they're less than 30 minutes long, we'll watch one of them before we get into the second event of the day...

Let's be honest with ourselves here. You didn't click onto this post for Minecon.

Ultra Hardcore Season XIV is the event that matters this month, and it'll be one to remember. At the beginning of the match, every player will be without a team, but that won't last long. The first player you meet up with will become your partner for this season! Of course, you don't necessarily have to team with the first person you spot, but it might be well-advised; the longer you delay finding a teammate, the more likely that you'll find yourself having to take on two people by yourself!

To team up with a player, you simply have to stand within a few blocks of one another while not already on a team. Once there are only two solo players remaining, they will be automatically matched together. Please bear in mind that you may not make pre-determined arrangements to meet up with a specific individual, and may not share your coordinates or hints regarding your location to other players. Working with the person you meet is part of the fun! Lastly, remember that the Titanslayer medal will be granted to the player who kills Season XIII Champion Kaddaschatzi.

For those who have not had the pleasure of participating in a UHC match before, it is a PvP event in which players are spread throughout a world of naturally-generated Minecraft terrain, and natural health regeneration is turned off. The only way to regain lost health is by eating a golden apple, drinking a Potion of Healing, or by eating a golden head. The last team standing is the victor!

As a reminder, this season will begin at 2 PM EST, which is an hour later than usual.



  • Dead players must cut off all communication with all other players. There are no exceptions for any reason.
  • Until they spot each other organically, players may not communicate their location in an effort to team up with a specific player.
  • Trapping Nether portals is not allowed.
  • Potions of Regeneration are banned; ghasts will drop gold ingots instead of tears.
  • Players are safe from PvP for the first 20 minutes of the match. An automated message will be posted in the in-game chat after 20 minutes have passed.
  • Mods are not allowed, with the exceptions of Optifine and the Replay Mod.
  • Skybasing - defined as building high up into the air to create an artificial chokepoint - is banned.
  • Branch mining is banned. Staircasing and digging downwards are both acceptable, but you must explore caves to find your treasures.



The following section will detail the ways in which matches of UHC differ from vanilla survival. Largely, the game will function exactly the same, but a few minor tweaks have been made to encourage exciting and fair gameplay. In the future, these rules will be listed in the Ultra Hardcore hub post instead of in season announcements.

  • When players die, they will drop their head. If you surround the head with gold ingots in a crafting table, you will create a Golden Head, which, when eaten, will restore twice as much health as a golden apple does.
  • Every player will be given two absorption hearts (4 hitpoints) that will refresh every 60 seconds until an hour has passed.
  • Endermen will always drop an ender pearl.
  • Endermen have a 20% chance of dropping 1 dragon's breath.
  • Blazes will always drop one blaze rod.
  • Zombie Pigmen will always drop 1-2 gold nuggets (previously had a 50% chance of dropping 1)
  • Zombie Pigmen have a 50% chance of dropping nether wart.
  • Horses & llamas will always drop at least one leather.
  • Baby wolves will never grow up (and thus cannot be bred exponentially).
  • Tamed wolves have 8 health points (the same as their wild counterparts) instead of 20.


Everyone wants to be the best.

Champion - Awarded to the last team standing!
Ironman - Awarded to the last player to receive a point of damage.
Sanguine - Awarded to the player to slay the most opponents.
Midas - Awarded to the player to acquire and eat the most Golden Apples.
First Blood - Awarded to the first player to kill an opponent.
Titanslayer - Awarded to the player who kills the previous season's Champion.


As always, this season will be hosted on games.everneth.com - the server will open 15 minutes before the scheduled starting time. The game will begin at 2:05 PM, and anyone arriving later will be automatically put into spectator mode and will not be able to participate in the match. Don't be late; we can't start over for you! Also, mind that the server will most likely be in Minecraft 1.13.2.
