I have played several games of Minecraft hunger games, and have been pretty consistently been able to reach the top 10 by dispatching any enemies with a quickly-crafted stone sword, then immediately focusing on iron armor.
Commonly the game reaches a point where there are only a handful of survivors, each who most likely have full iron armor. Right around this stage, the feast is announced it will arrive shortly, giving their coordinates. My questions are:
- What's a good strategy to guarantee you'll get the items at the feast?
- Is it better to declare your presence at the feast area (stand in the middle, watching your back), or attempt to hide out, waiting for another person/group to come?
- What's an effective kit to have to contend with any feast competitors?
I think understanding this stage of the game is vital, since each time I've lost to someone who happened to get the diamond armor/sword at the feast before I arrived.
