Server(s) you would like to moderate: Survival
How active can you be per week? Currently, I work shift work doing 2 days 2 nights, then 4 days off. During the 2 days and 2 nights I can contribute at least 3 hours a day. During my days off I can spend 12+ hours a day online.
Note: The times on my days off may change depending on how busy I am irl.
Do you have any past moderating experience? If so, briefly describe it:
I’m afraid I don’t have much to show in this section. I used to moderate a friends server called AuPvP. It was an Australian KitPvP server which averaged 10-20 players back in 2013. In my time moderating, I gained experience on how to identify and ban hackers, deal with chat issues and help players in general. Other than that, and being Helper on Munchy, I haven’t got much experience.
What is your knowledge of MunchyMC? MunchyMC was created in June 2015 after the fall of McPvP (rip). Since the beginning of Munchy, sadly a few game modes have succumbed due to lack of players and/or interest. A few notable ones are Mazerunner, HG, Raid, and Siege. Nowadays, Munchy has grown into a fun and enjoyable server which players have a variety of game modes to choose from:
Survival: Survival on Munchy offers a twist to the regular vanilla Minecraft offering plugins such as MCMMO, to provide tons of fun and exciting things to do! There are countless ways to enjoy your time on survival such as claim areas to build with friends, go explore the map, mine to become rich, create communities and much more. There are worlds you can explore at the portal room: mining, end, and nether which you can use to obtain items. You can sell items by using /auc or by utilizing the mall. Survival uses gold ingots as its main currency that allows players to use at both auctions and the mall.
KitPvP: KitPvP is a server that’s pvp orientated where you can practice and improve your pvp skills. Casual is a ffa area where people can choose a unique kit to battle other players with the ability to swap between pots and soup. There are hostable automated events that donors can host like sumo, brackets, OITC, tnt run, dodgeball and more. Hostable events cost tokens which can be obtained by winning events, killing players and purchasing from the store. Along with the automated events, the Event team and Staff members host certain events such as Simon Says, Classic RR, Water Drop, Color Run and many more. The 1v1 arena has two different types of 1v1s - ranked and unranked. Unranked are 1v1s that are more chill and laid back without the pressure from ranked matches Ranked 1v1s have elo which are gained by winning matches and count towards the leaderboard. The leaderboard is a competitive aspect of kit with many players grinding to reach the number one spot especially since season 4 just started, many players are grinding to get to the top to win awesome prizes!
Prison: Prison allows players to experience a wide variety of exciting things to do such as farming, looting, gambling, and mining. There’s a large range of custom items such as legendaries, ultras, semis, and mythicals. To items, you can go outside exploring and looting the chests around the map. There are also some chests in the mines. Ranking up to the next cell A, B, C, D cell and eventually being able to prestige (unlocks abilities but sends you back to D) costs money. There are many ways to gain money but a great way is farming. You can also try your luck at the casino by doing fun games such as roulette, snail race, slots, and crash to earn money.
Wool Wars: Woolwars is a fun PvP game where chests are scattered around a map. Your objective is to kill and knock players off and be the last remaining. But there’s a twist - you need to avoid the rising floor or else you die! The higher you tower up, the more valuable items are, so getting yourself set up quickly is important to do You can pick a unique kit to fit your play style in hopes to win the game.
Purgatory: Purgatory is a rotten place where all the banned players go. Unlike most other servers, Munchy gives an opportunity of redemption, but at a cost. To earn a free unban you need to complete a quest. You can pick which you would like to do to earn your unban. You can mine 12,500 stone, 26,250 dirt or gain 200 xp levels. The best part about purgatory is the abilities non-banned players have: trolling the hackers! There are many abilities to choose from to troll a banned player to make their life a living hell while trying to earn an unban. ./adventure is also available to unbanned players who want to experience what it’s like to be a banned player.
Other: Along with all the game modes on the munchy server, MunchyMC has a lot more to it than just the server. Munchy has a Teamspeak and Discord server which allows players to communicate with other members of the community. It’s a great opportunity to meet new players and build friendships. This also allows for players to easily report people to staff members without going through the hassle of finding a staff member in-game. Munchy also has a website with general information about Munchy, the store, clans, leaderboards, support ticket system, and lastly, the forums.
Do you have any Anti-cheat experience?
Sadly I do not have much anti-cheat experience. When I was a mod, I did experiment with it a bit, but it was a moderately small server so it wasn’t used often. Since I lack experience, I’m very eager to learn about Ares and how it works.
Link us to any hacker reports you have made (recorded and/or reported) on MunchyMC: I mainly play survival now so it’s more difficult to record hackers on survival. Here are 3 on survival which I recently recorded:
Languages spoken: English
Describe your contributions to MunchyMC thus far? Being fortunate enough to get promoted to Helper on Survival, KitPvP, Wool Wars, and Prison in May, I strive to work my hardest to make the Munchy community the best environment to be in. I moderate the chat to ensure it stays toxic free so players can enjoy their time on Munchy. Helping the newer players is also something I love doing as it leaves a lasting impression on them as they are first introduced to Munchy which shows them what an awesome community we are.
What is your greatest strength? My greatest strength is empathizing with the community. I once was a new player asking for help and was given it by staff members and players. I know what it’s like to ask and receive help, so I understand what it’s like on both sides. I aspire to have a positive influence on the community by communicating and maintaining chat. Since I have a lot of empathy for others, I know how to handle situations calmly and appropriately with everyone’s best interest in mind.
Comment on your ability to work within a team: I believe I’m great at working in a team environment. This is because, at work, I work within a team with relies heavily on communicating as I operate machines and need to work with others to make sure everything runs smoothly. Working in teams is not only great because you work towards a goal, but you also build relationships with those you work with and around. I enjoy working with others because you can ask for criticism which is valuable since I always look to improve myself online and IRL. I also love to see what others think because they may have a different viewpoint than me, so bouncing ideas off each other is important which I think I do well because I’m a good listener.
What is your experience and knowledge of hacks?
I think my knowledge of hacks is quite vast considering I’ve been playing Minecraft since 2011 and have played on all types of servers. I’m not going to list every hack, so I’m just going to mention more widely used ones.
