Events, Prizes, and Fun - oh my!

With summer just around the corner, thoughts of hosting events come to mind, especially if you have a couple of unreleased ones sitting on the back shelf. This summer we will be introducing several new events sure to entertain you. Along with that, new, more exciting prizes will be handed out. Of course, not every new event does well on the first try. Things break more often than not, but that is all a part of the fun! One event, in particular, is resurfacing after a long winter of unuse. Mystery at the Manor ( MATM ) was canceled in mid-August but will be released for play sometime during the summer. If you're unfamiliar with the concept of MATM, fret not! Here is a quick introduction to the mystery-inspired game: "While attending a banquet, the lights suddenly dim. You hear someone bumping into the furniture surrounding you, and suddenly you hear a scream. Shortly after, the lights turn back on and one person is missing. Was there foul play, or did someone just go to the bathroom? Stay overnight as you figure out what exactly happened during those two minutes of darkness." The majority of these summer events occur on Saturdays at 18:00 GMT - just check our Discord for any announcements concerning events. If you have any suggestions about what the next event should be, let us know!

Caves and Cliffs Update

It is without any doubt that there is a big decision to make. We are listening carefully to each of your suggestions. We want to find the best middle-ground for everyone, but some disagreements are bound to happen. With that said, we have heard from Mojang that the update has been split into two parts. The part we're more concerned about ( the actual transformation of the land ) has been delayed to around Christmas time. In a way, this has given us extra time to work out the kinks. Along with that, our focus over the summer can be based on improvement and entertainment, rather than statistics and delegations. However, it is never too early or too late to express your opinions about how we should handle this update. Feel free to head on over to our Discord and discuss it within the #world-discussion tab. Remember, being polite towards others might help improve their opinion of your idea.

Recent Improvements

After a long-dormant period over the winter; several bugs, glitches, and other funky bits have come to our attention. Now with summer upon us, some of the more obvious ( and embarrassing ) problems are being fixed. Our resident Admin is taking the role of "IT Guy," but is overwhelmingly underqualified for the job. Please be patient. Some of the problems that have been " fixed permanently " are :
  • The Shop Command - /shop (name)​
  • The Shop Spawn Portal located @ spawn​
  • The Halloween Crate has been removed 209 days late ( whoops... )​
  • The Banker NPC @ spawn now has a function​
  • The Bounty Hunter NPC @ spawn has a new skin​

We have been made aware of other issues within our server. Below is a list of bugs we are currently working on fixing.
  • The Creative World​
  • 0x Diamond Glitch​
If you know of anything else we have not fixed or addressed above, please file a bug report on our Discord.
