    Hello CubeCrafters,

    Today we’ve released an awesome mini BlockWars update, to improve your gaming experience! A large part of this update centres around quality of life improvements, but we’ve done a few notable changes too!

    Team Balancer

    We heard you! The community did not like the team balancer inside BlockWars, so we've removed it. It has now been replaced by a brand new balancer! If the teams become unbalanced, the team with the least amount of players will be given a resistance potion. This is all based on how big of an unbalance there is. This also means that you will no longer be randomly switching teams in the middle of the game. Yay!

    Achievements

    We’ve added 5 new achievements to BlockWars!

    That hhhurrrt - Shoot a villager with an arrow.
    Speeding bullet - Reach a speed IV boost.
    Core player - Deal all the damage to the enemy core to win the game.
    Powerful - Collect 5 powerups in a single game.
    Destroyer - Deal 1000 damage to enemies’ cores.

    Maps

    We’ve got 3 new maps, plus lots of map changes to existing maps to make gameplay even better!

    This list of puns isn't going to end well.

    Took you long enough.




    It may be too late tbh. We need better traps , perhaps ones that do some plugin stuff .

    Kits , perhaps one which acts like a jetback? etc etc.

    Oh and FFA maps pls

    Since I can't actually go on and play right now does this mean 3 entrances that are currently open and not include other entrances that players may come up with?

    Anyways nice update for sure

    Finally they removed the team balancer. If you remember in May I had stated "it's not my fault that some loser from the other team had to go out for pizza and now I'm playing for them after doing so much for my team."
    Well, could be a sign of good things to come..
