    Hello CubeCrafters!

    Welcome to our first update of 2018!

    Today we're rolling out a nice and significant death messages update which affects most of our games. The main change this update brings is "Kill Assists" which were added some time ago to SkyWars. The feedback from these messages was vastly positive, and so we are bringing them to other games as well.

    The "Assist" part of the update, however, is only being rolled out to team games for obvious reasons! We do not want people assisting each other in solo games.

    EggWars - Hovering over the assist gives detailed information.

    This update will also give credit where credit is due, you will now be credited for the kill even if your pet kills a player. When this happens you can see a special death message saying killer's pet killed a player, but the killer will receive points and the statistics for the kill.

    Some of the changes to specific games:
    Survival Games - Blowing someone up will give you a kill now.

    Archer Assault - Demolition will now get a kill if someone steps on their mine and also for killing with TNT.

    Block Wars - Summoner will get kills now if a summoned mob kills a player

    Lucky Islands - Kills will be credited when blowing someone up with TNT Wand or Hot Potato.

    Go get those assists and as always, please leave us with feedback and your thoughts!

    It clears up some things and it looks much better. Good update although it's not that big! :)

    By the way, the Skywars messages updated too.

    Although I was hoping for some more general death messages (example: "<name> was rekt by <name>" or "<name> got murdered by <name>"), I think this is a pretty good start already!
