    Hello CubeCrafters!

    It's time for a little map update for ya'll. We've asked the community for some map suggestions and we've been busy changing and improving our maps, based on community and staff feedback. Want to know what's in the update? Read everything below!


    New pre lobbies.jpg

    We've added some brand NEW pre lobbies! Team EggWars and Tower Defence now have new pre lobbies. The old ones were outdated, boring and didn't relate to the their games at all. Now, they are clean, fresh, new and relate to their games, Hope you enjoy them!

    Eggwars pre-lobby is sick not gonna lie. My favorite changes are to the maps Dwarven and Toys. Those are my favorite maps, and it is nice to see that they have been changed. Mid at toys can get kind of cramped sometimes. Great job!
