    Summer.jpg

    Hello CubeCrafters! It’s surprising seeing a post from me, I know, but I’m here to tell you all about the plans we have for summer. This year's going to be bigger and better than any other before. We’ve got lots of planned updates to the server which include new maps & gamemodes along with some highly requested older maps. We’ll also be doing a lot of updates to the website and store - which includes the launch of CubeCraft merchandise. A CubeCraft App for iPhone & Android is also in development for release in August.

    Livestreams & Charity Work.

    Throughout August we’ll be doing weekly livestreams all in aid of Mind, a UK based charity which provides advice and support for anyone experiencing a mental health problem. Livestreaming will be on Twitch. We’ll be putting all purchases made on our store on Saturdays in August towards the cause. For example if you buy a Iron rank on Saturday the £10 will go to Mind. They’ll also be another donation page where you can specifically donate towards our target of £20,000 without getting anything in return (Well a good feeling inside maybe). We know this is a very ambitious target but we're confident we'll reach it. If we raise the £20,000 for charity myself, @johncoles , @Marco Slater , @rubik_cube_man and @Efcluke94 will be Skydiving in real life - something we are all terrified of. The dates for these livestreams are the 1st, 8th, 15th, 22nd and 29th of August, they’ll take place at 7PM UK time (We'll have a countdown of course :) ). Livestreams will include playing games on CubeCraft aswell as other games on PS4, Xbox One & the Wii U. We’ll have guest appearances from staff members including @Exciting_pancake (Chloe) and @OrangeGrapeEater (Karl) to name a few. Each livestream will also contain giveaways both virtual and physical items. Details of each livestream will be released 4 days before.

    Creative Upgrade.
    Our summer begins in August, and what better way to start? Creative will be getting an upgrade on the 1st of August. This will reduce lag and the amount of crashes, this however does mean that Creative will be down from 10PM on the 31st July - 12AM on the 1st August. We apologise in advance for the inconvenience.

    Twitter Giveaway.
    When we reached 20,000 followers on Twitter we promised an 'explosive' giveaway, but not much has been announced since then. We’ll be giving away either a PS4, Xbox One or a gaming computer to the winner along with other CubeCraft goodies. The way to enter will be quite simple, you’ll need to make sure you're following us on Twitter and retweet+favourite the tweet we release at 00:01 (UK time) on the 1st of August. That’s it! The competition will run for 2 weeks and will close at the end of the Livestream on the 15th August.

    Now moving slightly away from Summer…
    - We’d like to welcome the newest member of staff to the server - @GingerGeek. He’s our newest developer that will mainly be working on the infrastructure side of things. Check out his profile and go say "Hi", he’s a really nice guy and we’re happy to have him on board.

    - Just as a reminder if you haven’t seen our tweet (You should be following us - @cubecraftgames ;) ), Skyblock will be going down for scheduled maintenance at 9AM - 2PM (UK Time) on the 20th July.

    - We’d like to hear from you. We want game suggestions, bug reports, map submissions the whole lot. Without the community we wouldn’t be who we are and we’d really appreciate for you to help us out with this. Submit game suggestions, bug reports and maps on the forums as we’ll be looking at these within the next few weeks.

    Oh, I nearly forgot. We'll be doing a discount on ALL ranks throughout August - keep a look out for the discount code.

    Thanks - Joe :)
