Bedrock Server Catchup
No one likes bugs, so I fixed a load.
Most of these bugs affected us across the network so now they have been utterly annihilated. You should notice that we are more stable and your game experience is even better.
Previously we've done updates like this totally silently, however, we now want to share with you what we are up to so I hope you enjoy the details!
Also, we hit 19,000 concurrent on Bedrock today (smashing our player record on that platform)! Whoop! Thank you, everyone, for playing <3

ADDED: Eating, block placements and block destruction sounds
ADDED: The ability to swap armour with armour you currently have equipped

SkyWars Chaos Open Week
Chaos SkyWars is our ultra crazy and fast-paced 1vs1vs1vs1 game - with automatic bridging, OP weapons and armour and total chaos. Usually, you have to be VIP level 1 on the server to play but we've opened it up to everyone for an entire week. To help with the massive influx of players we've increased the team size to three for an utterly crazy, totally chaotic 3v3v3v3 match.
Oh and because we haven't yet done enough for you - there are two new maps as well:
SkyWars Chaos - Farm
SkyWars Chaos - TNT
This map went out with a Bang!
