Cubecraft Bedrock’s 5th Birthday!!
5 Years ago today Cubecraft launched on the bedrock network and this post may not be official but let's look back on some of the Biggest moments that have happened the past 5 years and the history of Cubecraft bedrock!
If you feel i have left something out or want to add anything let me know :D
(If staff could share any interesting statistics like total number of bedrock punishments/reports/unique players that would be interesting and wonderful!)
The Complete History of Cubecraft bedrock
On the 25th April Cubecraft released on bedrock with only Two gamemodes!! Those two gamemodes were Skywars and Eggwars! With survival games being the third game to be released in under a month!!
The first seasonal event on bedrock was Summer and this is what the lobby looked like!!

(Crazy to see only three gamemodes compared to now!!)
During this summer Minerware also got added to bedrock!
Taking the total gamemodes to 4
It was also around this time they released their first cosmetic pack, The Pioneer rank!! The first of many, many many packs to come!!
The first full seasonal event then came to bedrock with The Halloween event! Which saw the release of the first Limited time gamemode on bedrock Ender!!

There was also the first ever Lobby hunt! Finding the 15 pumpkins around the lobby gave you the Pumpkin swirl win effect!
At the end of this event also saw the addition of Cubecraft stats being available!
