Hey everyone,

It's been a while since we have posted an update thread on our forums, but, we're back with an exciting announcement: as you can see from the title of this thread, WEEKLY UPDATES ARE BACK!

Every week, we'll be posting a new Weekly Update that'll include some of your own suggestions that you guys post in the #suggestions channel on discord.

Read on below to find out more about this weeks update!

OP SKYBLOCK HAS RELEASED
As most of you are aware, yesterday we released OP Skyblock! This new Skyblock server is, of course, more OP than regular Skyblock. We've done some changes to the economy, buffed crates, kits & some spawners and are currently working on souls to be released next weekend.

New Features

  • New Crates - Each crate has been updated to be way more OP.
  • New Economy - Certain sell prices have been changed throughout the shop, such as Food & Farming prices.
  • New Kits - Each donator & starter kit has been updated to be, you guess it, more OP.
  • New Spawners - 3 new spawners have been added to the store, villager spawns (drop emeralds), witch spawners (drop emeralds) and ghast spawners (drop diamonds)

Souls
Souls will be an exclusive feature to OP Skyblock, meaning they will be removed from regular Skyblock soon! Souls will allow you to purchase custom OP enchantments through the soul well, found at the soul well warp.

To join Skyblock, head to the Hub and choose the gold block in the server selector. You can also use the NPCs straight ahead of the spawn point.

Hello everyone,

Today's news is a bit different than normal, with a lot of discussion between the upper team, we have decided to unfortunately shut down Bedwars & Minigames on the 1st of July.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Q) Why shut down Bedwars?
A) Bedwars takes up a lot of resources and time to maintain and right now we aren’t getting the amount of players we expected to get on Bedwars.

Q) Will Bedwars ever come back up?
A) There is no definite answer to this, however, we have plans to run at least monthly Bedwars tournaments on our Event server. These tournaments may vary from Bedwars to other sorts of Minigames!

Q) What time will Bedwars shut down?
A) The server will shut down on the 1st of July at 12 AM EST.

Q) I bought a Minigames rank, what will happen?
A) Anyone who bought a Minigame rank will be given a gift card equivalent of the ranks price.

Q) I made a map for the Community Map event, what will happen?
A) We really appreciated all the submissions we got! Now that Bedwars is being shut down, we won't have a use for any Bedwars maps, therefore, we won't be reviewing any of the maps that were submitted.

Q) Is it only Bedwars that is shutting down?
A) Yes, only Bedwars and our Minigame lobbies will be shutting down. This will mean that we will no longer add future Minigames. However, as we mentioned above, we will be hosting at least monthly Minigame tournaments.

On a brighter note, two very familiar faces and two not so familiar faces have joined our ownership team & development team. Please welcome ckamps and ItsMeCyclone to the ownership team and AsyncNick and TimLampen to the development team.

If you have any further questions, feel free to ask below and we will respond as soon as possible!
Thanks.
