    YAY
    ;)
    Ok no. NO. Why? Skywars is known for having a really "vanilla" side to it. Why would anyone craft God Apples in 1.9?
    THANK GOD <3
    Yay, again.
    Lol I never knew about that but oki
    Mario's armor and Candy Floss ftw

    I really appreciate the map updates. Like, you turned my least favourite maps into the best maps ever.
    Only thing that kinda turns me off is the lobby.
    Why did you modify it like that? o_O
