    Hello CubeCrafters!

    Ho ho ho, it's that time of year again, when fireplaces are lit and the stockings are out. This year, Christmas on CubeCraft is even bigger and better than before. We're giving you guys two Christmas updates, split into two parts. Both jam-packed with content for you to play and enjoy over the Christmas season.


    CHRISTMAS LOBBY + HEAD HUNT.png

    This year for Christmas our lobby has been converted into a Christmas kingdom of snow, presents and candy canes. Explore the vast locations around the lobby, the huge Christmas tree, the igloo, the winter village and the snowy beaches.

    Christmas Lobby 2018.
    As usual with our seasonal lobbies, we've added our famous and well known Christmas Head Hunt. We have hidden 25 presents around the whole lobby and you must find them all to win the rewards. You have the chance to win a Christmas Cubelet, which can give you any of the 36 exclusive Christmas loot items.


    Collecting a present from the Christmas Present head hunt.
    With the Christmas lobby comes Christmas lobby game items. We've added 9 Christmas themed Lobby Fishing items and Relic Hunting items for you to collect during the Christmas season. These items are only collectable whilst the Christmas lobby is active, so you better get digging and casting. If you want to view your items, punch either the Relic Hunting or Lobby Fishing NPC and you will receive your fishing rod or relic shovel, then you can right click whilst holding them to open up your journal. The Christmas items are on the 3rd page.

    For the first time ever, we've added a lobby Christmas Advent Calendar. For 25 days, you will be able to collect each day to earn points, loot points and experience. Once you open the calendar, you will see a Christmas tree layout with all 25 days of the Advent Calendar. The gold present is the current day you need to collect, if you miss a day, you cannot obtain it anymore.

    There are also opportunities for you Advent Calendar lovers to get consecutive day rewards. There are 5 presents to unlock, 5, 10, 15, 20 and 25 days, meaning you need to collect that number of daily rewards in a row to unlock the presents. There are Cubelets, Christmas Cubelets and a lot of experience to unlock.

    Along with releasing a Christmas themed lobby, we've also brought 7 of our famous Christmas maps, in all of your favourite games such as SkyWars, EggWars and Lucky Islands. Each map is packed with Christmas spirit to make your gaming experiences of jolly during this time of year. Will you be able to play all of our Christmas maps?

    CHRISTMAS CUBELETS + LOOT.png

    With a Christmas update brings Christmas Cubelets and loot items. There have been over 35 loot items added, such as Win Effects, Hats, Shields, Gadgets, Trails and much more. Including the awesome Santa Sleigh win effects, animated bauble cage and magical present launcher gadget. Along with the Christmas Cubelets comes the incredible and wicked Cubelet opening effect, why don't you try it out? Just open a Christmas Cubelet. Christmas Cubelets can be found on our store HERE, rewards from the Advent Calendar or Head Hunt and can be found in games as end of game rewards. If you want to know how many Christmas loot items there are and how many of each type are available, here is what is available:
    • 2 Gadgets
    • 4 Shields
    • 3 Trails
    • 9 Cages

    • 3 Miniatures (+3 others with Christmas Cubelet purchases)
    • 3 Win Effects
    • 2 Arrow Trails
    • 6 Hats
    • 36 Christmas loot items in total!
    Also, if you purchase packs of 3, 5 or 10 Christmas cubelets you automatically get some execulsive miniatures with the purchase. For 3 Christmas Cubelets you get a Reindeer miniature, with 5 you get a Present miniature and 10 you get an awesome Snowman miniature with a snow halo trail.

    We've made a few changes to several of our lifetime ranks, making a lot of the perks more accessible than ever! We've lowered the price of the lower tier ranks significantly, meaning it now costs a lot less to unlock the ability to choose maps, along with all the other great perks. So what exactly has changed?

    Friends
    Emerald Rank now has an additional 5 friend slots and Obsidian gets an extra 25 slots, giving Emerald Rankers a 75 friend limit and Obsidian Rankers 125!

    Parties
    Obsidian gets an extra 5 party slots and can now create 20 player parties.

    Voting
    SkyWars Time voting option is now available from Lapis Rank upwards. Tower Defence Price voting is now unlocked at Gold Rank and the Gamemode vote is unlocked at Diamond.

    If you want to see the changes yourself, visit store.cubecraft.net.


    OTHER.png

    Whilst you've been extra busy with Christmas, we've also made other changes and improvements to our network. Here's just some:
    • MinerWare is now a permanent game.
    • Multipliers will now activate for your chosen game successfully and any broken multipliers were given back to players.
    • Improved the /report Plus feature, to be more reliable.
    • Super secret Sentinel additions and improvements.
    • Fixed some of the Christmas win effects from not working in some games.
    • Removed the legs from the bath in the Sink duels map to avoid campers from staying under the map (Thanks to @Scream)

    We hope you guys enjoy this Christmas update, part 2 will be following it soon. Don't forget to comment below!
