    Hey Guys!


    First and foremost, let's get excited for 2018! We've got so much planned over the coming weeks and months in terms of expansions to our network, some of which will be talked about today!


    Coming soon to TheSquadMC...

    Note: Bed Wars has not been released yet, when it does, it will be announced on our Discord and Twitter -- stay tuned.

    ▶ Bed Wars

    That's right! The gamemode that's taken Minecraft by force as of recently is being worked on and will be added sometime in the near future to TheSquadMC! While the plan was to launch this gamemode last week, we’ve decided to spend a little more time on it as we want to make sure it’s perfect before letting you guys on. You may have already seen the gamemode in the server selector(s), if so, get excited! We have so many plans for both the gameplay and cosmetic aspects that we’re excited to update you on shortly. Some very important people may or may not be be streaming it on release...


    ▶ Gameplay

    What is Bed Wars, you may ask? Bed Wars is one of the most popular Minecraft mini-games in which, based on the mode (explained in the below bullet) places you by yourself or with a team against other teams of the same size. You each spawn on an island with a bed, an ore generator, and two shop villagers. Once you destroy someone’s bed, you’re able to take them out of the game. If you kill someone but don’t break their bed, they will respawn in 5 seconds, and continue respawning until their bed is broken. To win, all other beds need to be broken and all other players need to be killed. If a player dies and is taken out of the game, it will display as “FINAL KILL” in chat. Winning will give you EXP and Coins, which can be used to unlock rare cosmetics (in the future). Beds can be protected by blocks purchased in the shop, which are all purchased with Iron Ingots, Gold Ingots, and Emeralds (with the rarity of items scaling up by ore). Each map has four diamond generators that can be built to, Diamonds can be used to upgrade your island with things such as the “Heal Pool”, which gives you a health boost when standing on your island. There are four Emerald generators at the middle, Emeralds can be used at the shop to purchase diamond armor, a diamond sword, enderpearls, and more. If you need any other clarifications on the gamemode, comment down below and we’ll do our best to answer them!


    ▶ Modes

    We plan on having both Solo and Teams modes for our Bed Wars servers. Solo Mode is, as the name states, yourself against 7 other people, while Teams mode is a total of 16 players, with 4 on each team. We have a total of 5 maps for both Solo and Teams, with the islands adjusted accordingly based on the gamemode, and there are 15 servers for each mode. This means that at a time, we're able to hold 360 players on Bed Wars (not including the Lobby servers, which there are 6 of). If the demand for it goes up, we'll add more servers based on how many of you are trying to join.


    ▶ Maps

    As stated above, we have 5 maps used on the two modes, we're going to be adding new maps, modes, and cosmetics in the weeks after launch so stay tuned for that!

    We'd like to thank every single member of TheSquadMC community! Without your support a lot of this would not be possible. We have an update packed January, great way to start 2018 - with Bedwars, Troll Wars, Quests and so much more on the way!

    Let us know what you'd like to see on the server by creating a suggestion on the Suggestions forum. :D

    Yay!!! I love bedwars so much, and I am super exited to see it being added to this server. Now I don't have to switch servers just to get what I want! Also glad there are measures being taken to stop exploiters and scammers. Keep up the gosh darn good work Squad!
