    Hello CubeCrafters!

    As you probably noticed (would be bad if you wouldn’t have yet!) we've released the "CubeCraft 2.0" update, which at the moment is operating in a stable condition, and we're happy to have finally released it.

    Most of you also know we had quite some issues at the start, and not all of you are quite happy about that, and we hear you! We've had quite a few bugs at the start, which caused everyone (some of which were some impatient players!) to think that the 2.0 update was absolutely the worst thing of all times, which it’s not! With a bit of patience by yesterday night most issues were fixed, and at the time of me writing this pretty much all of the bugs have had updates that fixed them.

    This update is big. Much bigger than any update we've done ever before, and with it come big amount of bugs as well, which we're constantly active to find and fix them, as we have always done in the past.

    We feel a bit hurt by the amount of users that hopped on the bandwagon of swearing at us and wanting the old version back, we want to let you know that the old version has been erased, and replaced by 2.0, there’s no going back. I think that was a good choice, because this update features so many improvements, both in the interface, the maps, and especially on how things work internally. We've re-written the entire code that manages our servers (and therefore have bugs to fix!), to make a system that we can use and grow infinitely (yes you read that right), with the system that powers 2.0 we can accept thousands of players more then we have had in the old version, which was quite laggy and unstable.

    At the moment the amount of servers available on 2.0 is much smaller than on the old version, and that is because we're working on them and converting old servers into the new server system, so that everyone can play. We expect, at the end of that stage, to have basically no players waiting for a game to be available, ever! We really disliked the thought of players having to wait for servers to free up, which is part of the reason why we did this update, this allows us to infinitely scale up, and add more servers as our community increases in size. To infinity, and beyond!

    We've also, alongside this update, added many features that are probably still undiscovered by our members, such as the "YouTuber" rank, we heard your voices, and we knew lots of people wanted it, so we made that rank available, which empowers YouTuber’s to make much better videos on our server, and more easily as well. At the moment the rank is restricted to a small group of YouTuber’s which have been able to join our beta list (so please stop spamming us about it!), and once we've fixed any bugs which appear, we'll open this rank up to all the -real- YouTuber’s. (Yes, there will be certain requirements to meet in order to achieve this rank.)

    All in all, as we keep moving forwards, we believe this update will be a great one, and will mark CubeCraft as an even better server as a whole. We plan to keep developing, growing, and providing a more fun server to play on for all of our players as time passes.

    For now, those are my thoughts. If you have any comments, post them below. If you dislike things and want to send some hate, then do constructive criticism. (Explain why you dislike it, and what’s making you hate it.) Negative comments with swears, hatred, or spam will be removed.

    - Halothe23

    - Post update: Kits were reset to make place for all the new kits, the points you spent on the old kits were refunded to everyone's accounts. (Read Chat!) Also it is to note that its things you bought for free, since the points currency is free, so think before you rage at us for having to re-purchase the kits with points you got for free.

    Since you explicitly asked for (constructive) criticism:

    - Above all there should have been a public beta people could have connected to before live-day. People could have commented on what they did / didn't like before. This more than anything made the release day a failure.

    I do not like, having played for about 10 minutes total:

    - The apparent unbalancing of Sky Wars with new kits. Some seem far too strong, though I haven't seen them in play.
    - New maps are pretty but seem to play very similarly to other existing maps. Scare was the only really different map that seems to have been removed for some reason.
    - Sky Wars lobby now a bit confusing to newbies, not right in front of you as before
    - Floating stats are great, but don't show anything new about how good at the game you are (K/D, W/D)

    Very good update, though I do miss the old server, I know this will be a better update for the wellbeing of everyone. I'd like to thank everyone who participated in making this update happen :)

    People can look right and left. It's not that hard.

    Being worked on, for future updates. Once all bugs are fixed, am sure they will be released soon.

    At first I hated this update as it. Completely changed CCG, but now I realize that this update is really cool! Also one question, has the skywars bug where if you try to join a map an it says (proxy) server disconnect, or something like that been fixed yet? If not just pointing it out! @halothe23

    Great job build team, for the amazing new lobbys, and Ty halothe, rubik, Lucariatis, and all staff members for the amazing update! The new vanity items are amazing, and the new kits are great!

    Just thought there should be a teleportation device for the Freebuild lobby, so you don't have to run (x) amount of blocks to get to (y) mini-server. Would make it a lot easier for people.

    We've already noted that. Its in early stages in terms of bugs and functionality. But then again, how can you test with 1000+ people if not live? (I doubt that many people would even put the effort into connecting to a different server, knowing the laziness. Plus we would need to buy so much more hardware to do it, which at the moment we don't really want to.)

    OP kits are extremely expensive. Regardless, you're not the only one pointing that out, we noticed users want a more balanced gameplay, we'll work on figuring that out.

    Got any better suggestions then?

    You obviously have not read the part of the post that says we've erased the old server.

    We're working on fixing that bug. Packet errors aren't too easy to figure out.

    How about to calm some of the angry players and celebrate the new, we give "X" amount of points to EVERYONE on the server? That might calm some people down :)

    Like, I haven't been able to hop on because CCC has been down for bug testing, but let's say you give people a LOT of points (but not enough to make everyone OP) with the message: "To celebrate CubecraftGames 2.0, we have decided to give EVERYONE "X" points, donor or stone! Hopefully this clears some issues you first had, and you can enjoy spending those points anyway you want!" (It could be enough points to buy a Skywars kit from scratch or something)
