    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.

    NEW DUELS
    You guys suggested it, so we added it! Duels was added earlier today and so far it has been very popular! We currently have a total of 3 kits you can select from and 3 different maps to play on.

    Maps

    Let us know which kits you'd like to see to Duels. For the next 4 weeks, each Weekly Update we'll be adding a new duels map.

    Duels are available on Factions, Prison, Skyblock & OP Skyblock. To begin a duel type /duel <player>. You can also view stats & spectate other duels via /duel stats <player> and /spectate <player>.

    CHANGES & FIXES
    We have done loads of changes, fixes & additions to the network over the last few weeks. We won't list all of the changes as some of them we are keep quiet to see how testing goes.
