    Hello CubeCrafters!

    There has been loads of feedback and suggestions for PvP, and we're excited to announce a new update for Duels, FFA and Assassination. This update comes complete with new kits, new gameplay features, new maps and new achievements! So let's go ahead and talk about the update.

    Achievements
    There are now achievements for Duels, FFA, and Assassination! Be sure to check them out and see if you have what it takes to unlock them all.

    Duels
    For Duels we have balanced some existing kits, added new kits, added a new rematch option and new maps. Soup mode has also been removed. The build height for duels maps has now been halved meaning you shouldn't have to be a parkour god just to get those kills!

    Rematches
    You can now have a rematch with a player you have just battled. This allows for quicker matches of PvP if you're happy constantly battling away with your opponent, rather than having to leave and try and get into another battle. Let's be honest, it's always best of 3 matches. Wait no, 5. OK 10.

    New Kits
    Thanks to the wonderful community suggestions we've added some new kits for you to play with. Here they are:
    • SkyWars (Normal Kit).
    • Tank (Classic 1.8/Normal Kit).
    • Brute (Normal Kit) by Sylvaly.
    • Alchemist (Normal Kit).
    • OP SkyWars (Overpowered Kit) by MagnificentSpam.
    • Spectre (Insane Kit) by Tacosbefriends.
    • Quickdraw (Insane Kit).
    Kit Balancing
    We also heard your comments about the balancing of the kits so The Ninja (Overpowered Kit), Darkness (Insane Kit), and Trapper (Classic 1.8 Kit) have been removed. Bow kits are no longer available for Classic 1.8, meaning that Classic 1.8 kits will be more focused towards sword combat.

    FFA
    For FFA we have balanced some existing kits, added a sidebar for tracking player stats and added a new map. Soup mode has also been removed from this game. Players will now be sent back to the lobby if they are idle for longer than 5 minutes meaning fewer AFK players!

    Player Scoreboard
    A new scoreboard allows players to track in game stats such as kills, deaths, current kill streak and the kill death ratio. The best kill streak is the best kill streak achieved in FFA overall (this is also displayed on the lobby stats board), rather than the best kill streak for that one game.

    Love you guys! <3

    Okay seriously, this update was a lot bigger than it needed to be. You updated three games at once, adding new maps and achievements. Great job! c:
    Also,
    This is one of the best quality of life changes ever.

    I like the maps, they look really good, duels are also nice, same goes for normal FFA.
    However I don't like what you've done in OP FFA, it seems so chaotic now and for me it doesn't really seem enjoyable anymore :/

    Probably from all the wizards and ninjas running around xd I'd give it a few weeks, surely the wizard will be nerfed soon because it's really busted at the moment, and the ninja got the biggest buff of all so it's understandable why people are all eager to try it out. Don't give up on it yet! ;p

    The carpet on the map living room is quite annoying for kits with water/lava in them. Sometimes the lava/water will float one block in the air, other times it breaks the carpets and leaves a one block hole making the area awkward to fight in.

    Is it just me, or are the wins for duels broken? Only my Classic Wins / etc goes up when I win, not the Wins counter.

    Im loving the new update but it seems that there is a little glitch with the whole 1 v 1 system because every time I try to join one it keeps saying ‘generating erea’ but than it doen’t do anything :p

    I like the new update and all... I'm just a bit sad about the achievements, I have won almost 1,500 duels, and some these achievements are "win 100 duels" or "win 1000 duels" and I've done this, is there no way I can redeem it? Do I have to win another 1000 duels... EDIT: nevermind I played and one game and I got the achievements :)
