    45% on a cubelet or 45% on a game/win?

    So if you get a cubelet its 45% chance that it will be a summer cubelet?

    We want the server to update to 1.13, not just support it.
    No, just update the 1.9 network. That way we'll get to use the new features w/out creating another divide in the community.

    The picture says: NEW LOBBY
    NEW MAPS
    NEW LOBBY
    It looks funny, two new lobbies!
    Nonetheless, this update is absolutely spot on. Can’t wait to play again, but I’ll have to wait another four weeks, haha.
