    Hey Everyone!


    We're back again for yet another Weekly Update, this time with some exciting news regarding one of our newest additions to the server!

    [​IMG]
    ▶ Troll Wars

    After talking it over with Unspeakable, Moose, and Shark, we came to the conclusion that we wanted to build a platform that our players could enjoy being trolled on while also enjoying a simplistic style of gameplay. This led to the creation of Troll Wars, survival with a twist.

    ▶ Gameplay

    What better way to showcase this new gamemode than 3 new videos from your favorite content creators? Below are some videos you can watch to find out everything you need to know about Troll Wars. If you have any questions gameplay wise, either reply with your question(s) or ask us in the Discord!







    ▶ Passes

    Before releasing Troll Wars, we needed a way to make sure there wouldn't be players coming on just to cause mayhem and chaos. This is where our Passes come in. To play Troll Wars, you'll need to purchase access on our Store, in which you can purchase 1-day, 3-day, or 1-month subscriptions. We currently have quite a big sale going on, and also took the opportunity to lower the prices of the Passes to make it easier on you guys to join in on the fun! Our content creators will be doing regular streams on there, make sure you don't miss out! Click on the packages on our Store for more information regarding the Passes.

    ▶ ️ Monthly Crates

    We've added a new type of Crate separate from the rest on Skyblock and Factions, introducing... Monthly Crates! These are purchasable crates from our Store that will give you 10 rewards at once! You can purchase 3 of these Crates per month, and there will be a new Monthly Crate every Month with brand new rewards. View the possible winnings down below, I think you guys will be happily surprised at all that you can win.

    ▶ Factions

    ▶ Skyblock

    Hey, in the next update, could you please make it so you can sell wool, it does not have to be too high earning, I just feel bad chucking it off the edge of my island because its a waste of space. Cool update, Bantakiwi

    Firstly, They don't really wanna buy wool, and also, selling 100 stacks of wool on /ah is increadably slow, since I can only have 4 things there at once, But thanks for the reply
