Hey guys I just want a general opinion on the 1.9 update.

Personally I think it would be great for aesthetics and combat in general however is it worth the potential bugs / issues it may cause with current plugins? Also I want an opinion on HP. With the update rolling out there will be more powerful / special attacks obviously making HP much more worthless, this brings me to my next question; should we add an extra 10hp?

The server will remain 1.8.9 until a stable spigot version is released for 1.9.

Just incase you missed the update notes:

* Added shields
* Attacking now has a “cool-down” delay, making it more important to time your attacks
* You can now hold items in both hands (default quick key to swap items is ‘F’)
* Swords have a special sweep attack
* Axes have a special crushing blow attack
* Added the elytra
* New mob: Shulker
* Expanded The End
* Added Chorus plants
* New Purpur blocks
* New End Rod block
* Added dragon head block
* Ender Dragon can be resummoned
* Added beetroot and beetroot soup (from MC-PE)
* Added grass path block
* Added igloos
* Armor protection values have been lowered
* Added tipped arrows
* Added spectral arrows
* Added Frost Walker enchantment and frosted ice block
* Added a whole bunch of new sound effects
* Added sound effect subtitles
* Brewing Stand now requires Blaze Powder to activate
* Added skeleton riders
* We believe we’ve fixed MC-10 and a whole bunch of other issues

It depends it is nice for aesthetics yes however it completely changes PvP and the already clunky system could possibly become much clunkier.
