Hello CubeCrafters!

Our Winter 2020 event is here and it's joined our Java & Bedrock networks. As you can see, we've rebranded the name of this event, but it's still full on joy! This release is packed with so much content to show you guys, it's our biggest seasonal event so far! As usual, we have Winter maps and hubs, including a Java Advent calendar and lobby present hunts. Java Winter Cubelets are back as well as awesome loot. We've got our best Bedrock seasonal bundle yet and the biggest piece of content is our new game, Colony Control! Read below to learn more about this update!


🏗️ NEW GAME - Colony Control!

Colony Control is an epic 3v3v3v3 PvP-strategy game where the objective is to become the strongest colony there is - destroy your opponents buildings & Town Hall and fight to be the last colony standing!

You have a selection of buildings that you can purchase from the Town Hall, take a look!

But how do you get Gold and Food currency? - Around the map, there are farms and mines that you are able to use to purchase your first buildings. We all have humble beginnings, so get to mining and farming - purchase a farmers or miners guild to get the villagers to do it for you once you have enough!

Each building will provide you with a different resource that you should use to be the strongest colony out there!

- Blacksmith:
This shop gives you weapons and tools for you to batter your opponents! There are 2 upgrades, taking you from Wood, to Stone, to Iron tools!

- Armoury:
No weapon is good with armour to protect you! This shop gives you armour; there are 2 upgrades, taking you from Leather, to Chain, to Iron armour!

- Food: A hungry man on the roll- food is important to keep you strong! This shop gives you food; there is 1 upgrade where you can unlock golden apples.

- Construction Site:
For all construction purposes, the construction site gives you some defence mechanisms for your colony! You can buy an archer tower, armed with 4 skeletons, or a wall post. If you place two wall posts next to each other completely, it will fill it in for you!


Walls filling in are very satisfying...

- Upgrade Store:
Upgrade your person with this store - you can buy a hospital, gym or running track with this! Limited to one, you can give yourself extra hearts, speed or resistance. 2 upgrades, each increasing your speed/resistance by 1 or extra hearts by 3.

- Farmers Guild:
Resources are limited, but also time-consuming! Get a farmer to do it for you - they’ll go, farm wheat and return back to the guild, giving everyone on your team 20 wheat. There are 3 upgrades, each giving you one more farmer!

- Miners Guild:
Resources are limited, but also time-consuming! Get a miner to do it for you - they’ll go, mine gold and return back to the guild, giving everyone on your team 10gold. There are 3 upgrades, each giving you one more miner!

- Pet Shop:
Nothing is better than having an extra person on your team! Choose between a zombie, a skeleton or a wolf to help you attack! They’ll attack players, guard your buildings or attack enemy buildings, just need to tell it to by right-clicking on it! There are 2 upgrades, taking you from 3 pets, to 6 pets, to 9 pets maximum! You can also upgrade your pets damage, range and speed!


Exploring the pet upgrade menu.

Around the map, there are two trees and three boulders for you to break - these will give you gold, but also the ability to place more buildings as you free up more space! To place a building, simply buy a building from the Town Hall, and right-click the ground to place! You need to be wary of placement though, as your space is limited!

2020-12-01_12.03.32.png

You can’t place a building here - it’s shown as having a red border!


2020-12-01_12.03.35.png

Woohoo! You can place a building here - it has a green border!

You have 10 minutes to gather resources as a team before the walls drop - your hunger won’t deplete, so it’s important to remember to get a Food shop to get food. When the walls drop, you’ll need to go and attack other colonies - first, you need to attack all of their buildings, before attacking their Town Hall. If you lose your Town Hall, you can no longer respawn!

If your building takes damage, you are able to repair it again, but if your building is destroyed, you cannot repair it. You'll need to clear the debris for gold!

Want to share currency with your team? Simply type /givecurrency, /givegold <IGN> <amount> or /givefood <IGN> <amount>.

All of this information is reiterated in the "How to play" book, which is given to you in-game and in waiting lobbies.


☃️ Snowman Survival - Bedrock only!

Snowman Survival returns to our Bedrock network and joins our Winter Games lobby. Sadly Java edition doesn't have Snowman Survival, but if you want to play it, you can join Bedrock to try it out! Snowman Survival allows 8 players and there are 3 maps available to join and choose from.

Snowman Survival is a fun game where the objective is to survive as long as you can, without the Snowman giving you frostbite! The game starts with 8 players, then the sacred Snowman performs a ritual and the starting Snowman is chosen. The remaining players are human survivors and have a brief grace period of 7 seconds to run away before the Snowman is released. Humans need to run and hide whilst dodging the Snowballs that the Snowmen throw! The first Snowman needs to throw his Snowballs at survivors, this will convert the Survivors in to more Snowmen.

As a Snowman, you have to throw your snowball. Left or right clicking gives you a quick throw, with a predefined amount of force. If your throw hits a survivor, they will be converted into a snowman. HOWEVER as a Snowman you only get ONE snowball, so use it wisely! If you miss, you'll have to run and fetch the Snowball by walking over it, or wait 5 seconds and it will come back to you automatically.


Snowman throwing their snowball.

When playing as a survivor, after 30 seconds of being released, you will notice there are powerups scattered around the arena which help you run, leap and teleport away from the Snowmen. Some powerups also allow Survivors to stun and gravity explode the Snowmen, as well as trick them with decoy survivors.


Survivor collecting powerups.

The Starting Snowman has the ability to track players with a compass. If the Snowmen don't convert all the Survivors before the timer ends, they will explode and lose!

If you're wondering how stats work in Snowman Survival, that's simple! You collect Medals. At the end of the game, both of the Snowmen and Survivors can earn "Snowman Survival Medals". You'll get medals for the following actions:
- Every 30 seconds you are alive as a Survivor
- Converting a Survivor into a Snowman as a Snowman
- Stunning a Snowman as a Survivor
- Staying alive as a Survivor the whole game

It would have been epic, if you would placed BlockWars CTF on the BlockWars npc and BlockWars Bridges was a featured game -only during- this event so we can play the new map on java and not just bedrock. Either way, BlockWars Bridges is no longer popular
