    Hello CubeCrafters, hope you had an awesome New year and Christmas. We're going to start 2016 with a bang, we've done a huge revamp of Skywars!


    Skywars lobby
    You know what really grinds my 'gears', we didn't do this sooner.

    We have merged Skywars and Team Skywars as one big epic lobby.



    Map selection / Quick-join
    You can now join your favourite map by simply right clicking on these adorable armour stands. (Only if you are a premium user). And left click to put you in a random game instantly. The highly requested Skywars with no abilities has been implemented. We have gave you the option to choose either.

    Leaderboards

    This nice cosmetic change shows your head. You will still keep your stats, so don't worry. But they look so cute!

    New pre lobby
    We've updated the lobby to give it a fresh look.
    Hopefully waiting won't 'Drag-on'

    New maps

    The build team has been working tirelessly to create seven brand new maps! Here's a few of our favourites shown in the pictures.

    Skywars - Stars
    'Everybody's 'starry' eyed when they see this!

    Seems like a really convenient update for players, especially the map selection menu. Think I'll go on skywars sometime soon and give it another chance, since annoying maps were one of the things that I disliked about this game.
    Thanks Cluke, looking forward to some of the future updates in store for cubecraftgames in 2016 :)
