Valley of the Kings is definitely going to be your map of choice if you’re a PvP fanatic who frequently likes to engage in fast-paced matches against your fellow Minecraft players. The map uses a Team Deathmatch style format by dividing players into teams of two. One team is of the Archaeologists that are trying to uncover the secrets of the Valley whereas the other team is of Egyptians who are against the studies of the Archaeologists and think that the Archaeologists are actually destroying the Valley because of their studies.
The Valley of the Kings map is primarily focused on large scale team based combat, so we recommend playing it with a large group of players. However, while the map has mainly been designed for large scale combat, it still functions just fine with small groups of players, and this is perhaps a testament to how clever the map’s design is. One thing worth noting about Valley of the Kings is that it tries to make full use of all the features and mechanics that were implemented in Minecraft 1.16.5 so you’ll probably run into a lot of instances that require the proper use of shields.
Alongside its other features, Valley of the Kings also has AI units that you can pick up for your team. Obviously, these AI units can’t be as skilled as the actual players, but they’re still pretty useful in a variety of different scenarios such as guarding a specific point or when you need to up the player count. In the Valley of the Kings, there’s also a Scarab Beetle elytra that you can acquire if you need a shortcut to the enemy’s base. The elytra are located in the upper path of the map, so if you want to go after it, then you should proceed with caution as your foes might be guarding it.
