    Hello CubeCrafters!

    Today is huge day for Multipliers. It's been a long time since we refreshed our Point Multipliers and brought them up to par with our other content. In this thread, we'll explain what we've updated, such as menus, thanking, Multiplier stacking, receiving rewards and free Multipliers. Please read this thread in full to know everything about this update!

    Multipliers have existed on CubeCraft for years, but now it's their time to shine. We've made huge changes to Point Multipliers, some you won't even believe, so let's get started! Multipliers now have an "Are you sure" confirmation before you claim or want to activate your Multiplier, just in case you accidentally activate it. We now have the ability to give players global and personal Multipliers, which affect all players and only you respectively, this opens more opportunities for new rewards in the future. When a player activates a Multiplier, there will be a global chat announcement, informing all players that the chosen game now has an active Multipler. If the message is clicked, it will thank the player that activated that Multiplier.

    When a global Multiplier is active for a game, its NPC will now receive some awesome particle effects, to help indicate that it has a Multiplier active in that game. Have you ever received rewards in games and you don't know why? Well now you will! We've added an awesome feature which breaks down all rewards and explains why you received that amount. If you ever want to know, just hover over the rewards with your mouse!

    Multipliers will now stack with each other and add the numbers up. For example, if there's a SkyWars double points Multiplier active, a double points weekend Multiplier active and you have a personal triple points Multiplier active, you will get 7 times the normal points! Wicked right? Lastly, another awesome feature which has been added, is the Multiplier finishing message. After you Multiplier has ended, you will get a message in the chat telling you that your Multiplier has deactivated, and will tell you how many people has thanked you and how many points you helped boost!

    menu changes.jpg

    With Multipliers, there's a lot of ways to show Multipliers and their status. We've made it easier to locate Multipliers and we've made them clearer to understand. With this update, we have more and complete control over Multipliers, allowing us to give them to specific players, set them up with specific games and time durations, this opens so many new opportunities for the future. The description of Multipliers are now more complete and detailed, with them telling you what games they are for, how long they are, what type of Multiplier it is and the size of it.

    If a global Multiplier is active, it will now appear in that game NPC, for example, if there's a SkyWars Multiplier active, and it was activated by a player, it will appear in the SkyWars NPC menu. If you click it, it will thank that player for their Multiplier. The Multiplier menu can no longer be accessed by the golden nugget on the player hotbar anymore, but instead it is located in the Loot menu in the bottom left hand corner. You can also access this menu by typing /multipliers in the chat, anywhere in the server! We've changed the Multipliers menu, to show current active Multipliers and all of the Multipliers you have. If there is an event Multiplier for a special event, for example a double points weekend, it will also appear in the Multipliers menu too!

    thanking.jpg

    We've added something special to Point Multipliers, the ability to thank/tip players! Thanking a player for their Points Multiplier will reward you with 50 experience and will give them 20 points and 100 experience. Players can only thank a player for their Multiplier once during its active period. You can rethank them, if they activate a new Multiplier. To thank a player, all you need to do is type /thank <username>, or just click on the global Multiplier activation announcement, or the Multiplier game NPC item. If you thank a player, it will automatically thank them for all of their active Multipliers. So if they have 6 Multipliers for each game, and you thank them, you will thank them for all of their Multipliers.

    free multipliers.jpg

    Multipliers are very helpful if you want to increase your points, but now, if you're an Obsidian ranked player, you will unlock a free selected global Multiplier. You can obtain this from the reward chest if you have an Obsidian rank. Once you click to claim it, you have the ability to decide what game you want to choose the Multiplier for. After you select it, the Multiplier will appear in your Multiplier selection menu you for you use at your discretion. If you already have an Obsidian account, go look in the reward chest and claim it!

    You can purchase or upgrade to Obsidian at store.cubecraft.net!


    Multiplier sale.jpg

    To celebrate this awesome update, we've decided to have a 50% OFF Multipliers sale. For all Multiplier, including the brand new Multiplier bundle store item, which will be added soon!

    You can check out the sale at store.cubecraft.net!

    When I read this I heard Rubik’s voice in my head and it really sounds like something he would say (“:

    Nice update though! Really listened to the community with the thank system. Or at least I thought i’d seen some threads about it some time ago?

    I think a great update!
    It would be super good if you could implement maps every week or month in skywars, eggwars, lucky islands, etc.
    But I think they're doing pretty good!
