    14-06-2018 - World Cup and Battle Zone.jpg
    Hello CubeCrafters,

    This week we're bringing you a special World Cup update, another Battle Zone update and other general network improvements and fixes.

    To celebrate the World Cup we're extending our SALE to the 18th June, that's 4 extra days! There's up to 40% OFF ranks, Cubelets, T-shirts and more. Visit our store HERE to grab yourself a shiny new rank!

    World Cup
    It's that time again where world countries compete for the World Cup, and to celebrate we're releasing 3 new maps and an exclusive limited time World Cup themed gadget!

    New maps:
    We've added 3 brand NEW maps for SkyWars, EggWars and Parkour!

    Football - Team EggWars

    This map is a keeper.

    Stadium - Competitive Parkour

    The goal is to beat your opponent.

    Exclusive gadget:
    In celebration to the World Cup, we've given every player a free exclusive but limited time gadget. It's a football! Play with your friends, kicking around this ball of fun. We've also added a temporary football pitch in the main lobby behind spawn, for players to play matches of football.


    Football gadget in use.

    Battle Zone
    This week we've added a lot of new features such as traps, weapons, textures and other improvements!

    New traps:
    Players have been giving suggestions for new traps and we have been loving them. Today we've added 6 brand NEW traps! Smoke, Spike, Archer, Jumbler, Proximity and a secret trap. You'll need to play to find out what the secret trap does o_O

    Smoke Trap in use.


    Spike Trap in use.


    Proximity Trap in use.

    Flame thrower:
    It's time to add another weapon. Introducing the Flame Thrower! This monster of a weapon will fire 100 pieces of fire before becoming empty. It burns and kills anything in it's path, so be careful and watch your fingers ;)


    Flame Thrower in use.

    Backpacks:
    Since so many weapons, ammo pieces and traps have been added, the lack of inventory space has been an issue. But now it's time to welcome the backpack! Once in the players inventory it unlocks the middle row allowing for all items to be placed within it. But if the backpack is dropped the items within that row will drop as well or will find another spot in the inventory to nest in.


    Resourcepack:
    We've updated our official resourcepack to support Miniguns and RPGs as well as Minigun ammo!

    With the other additions we've also made some minor improvements and features!
    • You can now place traps anywhere.
    • Traps now break if the placed support is removed.
    • Optimised guns.
    • Fixed issues with guns not being able to shoot through non-full blocks.

    • Renamed the Poison trap "Toxic trap".
    • Renamed the Fire trap to "Ignition trap".
    • Renamed the "Electric trap" to "Shock trap".
    • Renamed the Wither trap to "Entropy trap".

    General Network Improvements and Fixes

    Global:
    -
    Fixed a bug where players wouldn't get their Stat related Achievements in most games.
    - Fixed daily challenges.

    - Added a team balancer to Team mode.

    Optimising the AR wasn't the best idea since it's so hard to hit with it now
