    Hello CubeCrafters!

    MinerWare is back on our Java network for a limited time. Get on and enjoy as many games as possible before it's removed when the timer above the NPC hits 0. MinerWare is a mini-game which consists of 15 microgames and 1 boss game, the player gets the most points from winning microgames and boss games wins!

    Some of the featured games after MinerWare include: BlockWars, Line Dash, Survival Games and Paintball. Please note that some featured games that are planned may change.

    A featured game is where we release a temporary minigame for 2 weeks. Every 2 weeks the featured game changes to a new game. For example, after MinerWare is rotated away, BlockWars will replace it for 2 weeks, and so on and so on. Seasonal games generally will replace the featured games NPC/stand during it's period. You can view how much time you have left until the next featured game is released if you look at the timer above the featured game NPC.

    If a featured game is popular and demanded, there's a chance that we will release it as a permanent game. Featured games are randomly chosen and will not be reused until the next rotation or until many other featured games are released after it, this is avoid the same featured games coming back again and again and not giving other mini-games the chance to make an appearance.


    Thanks for reading. We'd love to read your feedback below in the comments!

    Very great! Although I'd love to play Battle Zone again, this is a very great first step. I'm looking forward to Line Dash already \o/

    I can't say how glad I am you realised minerware <3.

    I'm pretty sure that if you keep doing this kind of updates CubeCraft player base might grow.


    HYPE

    Reasons why you should realise it as a permanent gamemode:

    If parkour, a gamemode that's permanent only reaches 38 players whilest minerware reaches 120 why shouldn't you make it a permanent gamemode (It even has more players than tower defense too).

    It's also an original game, I mean, you can't find a server that has a minerware (yes I know there are some games that are similar, but non as fun).


    The game overall, with it's few hours of realise, it's been a boom, 130 players now, and I don't doubt It'll keep growing further more.


    Perhaps, you should wait until all the games passed the "featured" phase before chosing which one(s) really deserve to be a permanent game.

    And now, a little question, I've been doubting about it, but is there any possiblity that UHC is returned as a featured game?
    I would really like to know a bit about this further more. (@Quetzi, @Camezonda)

    With all of the games that can become featured games, they are able to be released as a featured game as they are now without any issues. UHC was removed due to the lack of players and the amount of issues, crashes and bugs in the game. Personally I do not see releasing UHC as a valuable choice. UHC would need a lot of maintenance to get it in the state for it to become featured. I hope you understand :D

    Yes I do, was just curious to know.
    I also think you should actually give a chance to Slime Survival, and Layer Spleef ;p

    Looks awesome, great way to balance everyone's requests.

    Question: Are featured games able to return more than once? Are there new games every 2 weeks?

    Question: Will there be stored statistics for each game, are they all bundled into "featured games" or do they reset every 2 weeks like the games.

    Yes!!! I missed the old games so much! Now I can play them again. And my friend's favorite game was minerware, so now we can play it again. Can’t say with text how glad I am

    Layer Spleef and Slime Survival will be a featured game at some point.

    - Featured games can be updated, but most of the time they will be as they were when they were removed. As to new users, it's a brand the minigame still.
    - The other arcade minigames will have their time to shine in featured mode soon.

    - "will not be reused until the next rotation or until many other featured games are released after it". Yes they can return more than once, just not instantly after it was featured, it's a rotation.
    - A new featured game appears every 2 weeks, unless a seasonal game is released which may disrupt the times.
    - The statistics for a featured game are stored separately, for example if you look in the MinerWare NPC, you can see your statistics and the leaderboard. And if we decide to release a featured game fully, the statistics collected when it was featured will still be used when it is fully released. So no need to worry! :D
