Today, December 30, get ready to enjoy a brand new Arenas 1.8 experience! Arenas? We already have that. What's the big deal? Arenas is a popular server where people go to play minigames like Capture the Flag and 1v1 with their friends. There's also a shop where you can buy new weapons and armor and have a free for all PvP match. Not only is the Arena server being updated to version 1.8, but we are adding awesome new minigames and a much larger spawn area! All of these new features have been tested by our awesome helpers, but they are only a small group of people. There may be unforeseen issues that arise when we release this new server to everyone, so continue reading but keep in mind that we may need to adjust or disable some or all of these new features. Bomb Arena We have a new arena game called Bomb Arena. In this game, there are two teams that try to take a bomb to the other team's base and plant it. If your team plants the bomb and it goes off, you win! There is also a bomb gauntlet game where the bombers have to run through an obstacle course while avoiding the arrows of the enemy team. It's a lot of fun! Build Battle! Yes, you heard me right! Build Battle is being added to The Sandlot. This is a game that many of you have asked for. You go head to head with up to 15 other players to build a representation of a word that you are given at the start of the round. After the build time is up, everyone votes on everyone's build. The player with the most votes wins! The plugin is, unfortunately, somewhat glitchy, but hopefully we can get it stable soon. Hide and Seek! Yes, you heard me right again! Hide and Seek is being added to The Sandlot. In this game you spawn as a random block if you are a hider, and you have to find a place to hide that looks inconspicuous. You get 30 seconds to hide, then the seekers go out and try to find you! The game has an economy system, and the more you play, the more upgrades you can buy! Get better gear or the ability to choose specific blocks to hide as! Oyster Stadium PvP The free for all PvP area is now in Oyster Stadium. This is where you go to battle with the gear you purchased from the Dunces and Dragons shop. Remember, if you die, you'll have to go play more mini-games to earn money to buy more gear! Slap Happy and King of the Ladders PvP Slap Happy is a boxing ring where you PvP without any armor or weapons. Once you enter the boxing ring, your inventory and armor is cleared, so make sure all your valuables go into an enderchest before you play! The same rules apply to King of the Ladder. How long can you stay at the top?! Hunger Games Lobby The Arena server is now going to be home for all our minigames. This means to play the Hunger Games, you will now connect from Arenas instead of the Lobby. There are gates made out of water near spawn. When you walk in a gate, you will be instantly teleported to the selected game! Using /lobby in Hunger Games will now bring you back to Arenas so you can play over and over without going through the lobby every time. Thank you to all the moderators and helpers for all your testing and support. It is greatly appreciated! I hope you all enjoy the new Arenas!
