    Hello CubeCrafters!

    Today we've got double trouble for you! Firstly, we have a HUGE BLACK FRIDAY WEEKEND SALE with 50% OFF EVERYTHING - Including Ranks, Multipliers, Miniatures and Merch! Sale ends midnight on Monday 27th of November.

    Secondly, if thats not enough for you, we've got a Lucky Islands update! We've gathered loads of feedback and amazing suggestions so read on to find out about the new gamemodes, new maps, new lucky blocks, new wands and much more!

    Onto the update...​

    New Gamemodes
    One of the main new features added into this update are the new gamemodes. We've got two new modes called Crazy and Blessed and you'll be able to vote for these before the game starts. If you thought Lucky Islands couldn't get any more chaotic, then you're wrong! With Crazy mode random world events occur every couple minutes - These can be positive or negative.

    Ever thought your luck is bad? Only opening bad blocks? Wishing you had a four-leafed clover in your pocket? Well with Blessed mode you're in luck! This gamemode changes the luck of all Lucky Blocks on the map to give only positive rewards, meaning you won't be blown up by a squid or poisoned by a witch anymore at the start of the game... *insert triggered meme here*​

    New Lucky Blocks
    The last Lucky Islands update added 20 new Lucky Blocks, but with this update we've added a total of 26 new Lucky Blocks! These include:

    Frost Path Wand
    Potion Wand
    Knight
    Exploding bow
    Frozen bow
    Shotgun bow
    Automatic bow
    Grappling bow
    Fire sword
    Archer tower
    Melon tower
    Illusion
    Farm
    Elytra
    Beacon
    Shulker
    Poison cloud
    Cage trap
    Luckblock trap
    Tree
    Chorus tree
    Quick craft
    Miner
    Pig
    Cat


    New Wands
    We couldn't add new Lucky Blocks without adding new wands! So with this update we're bringing you two new wands - Frost Path and Potion. Have you ever wanted to make a bridge but have no blocks? With the new Frost Path wand you can create an ice path or ice staircase depending on where you use it.

    The Potion wand has two variations - positive and negative. Using the wand when the wand has a pink top will throw a positive potion such as regeneration or strength, but using the wand when it has a green top will throw a negative potion such as poison or instant damage.

    So be careful how you use the Potion wand, because it can both heal and hurt you!
