Weekend Event 25/08 – Cubic Worlds Spleef Tournament IX!


Spleef – the original Minecraft contest of skill!
The crunch of steel slicing through snow. Fearless parkour across an arena littered with holes. Is now the time to strike? Should you attack directly or make a feint and try to take your opponent by surprise? Or should you wait for them to come to you?…

This intense and tactical PvP contest isn’t just a minigame – it’s a way to prove your true mastery of the shovel and become the Cubic Worlds Spleef Champion of 2019!

Across all the competitions of years past, only four people have succeeded in claiming ultimate victory in masternoj’s legendary tournaments. Their names and the tournaments they won are:


Many have come close, but do you have what it takes to claim a crown for yourself? There’s only one way to find out…

Join us this Sunday 25th August at 20:00 GMT to take part!

A Bunch of News for May

Greetings to you, gentle folk of Cubic Worlds!

It’s the start of May and I’ll shortly be getting to work on the weekend-long Egg Hunt for you all to enjoy.  Apologies again that it was late (real life sucks), but we got there eventually.  Hopefully the hunt will be as enjoyable as last year and the prizes will be shiny enough for your liking!

What else comes in May, though?  It’s a special month for our server, and I wanted to talk more about some things regarding the broader future of CW – the Minecraft 1.14 update, our 8th birthday, the Meepling appeal, and… other things.  Click below to read on!

Eggcellent Easter Events – Saturday 20th to Tuesday 23rd April!


Ssshhhh! Be vewy vewy quiet… farmyards everywhere are finding themselves mysteriously short of eggs as a seasonal plague of pilfering rabbits sweeps across the Six Faces! Join us in Cubic Worlds over this coming Easter weekend for not one but two events including:

Build That Thing!
CW’s original and best competitive build-em-up is much as you remember it, though it’s ringing in some changes. Based on your past suggestions you’ll be able to enjoy a rebuilt hosting area that supports not 4, not even 6, but up to 8 players or teams at once – and with more potential builders at once, expect new types of round too!

Date: Saturday 20th April
Time: 11:00 PDT / 14:00 EDT / 18:00 GMT / 19:00 BST / 20:00 CET

The Easter 2019 Egg Hunt
Following the tradition of the last couple of years, a portion of the Arcadia countryside has been claimed by mischievous rabbits where they’ve hidden away 25 eggs for you to hunt down. The more you find, the more special tokens you’ll receive to purchase a brand new selection of decorative heads. Missed last year’s hunt rewards? No problem – they’re returning too!

Date: Sunday 21st through to Tuesday 23rd April
Opening time: 06:00 PDT / 09:00 EDT / 13:00 GMT / 14:00 BST / 15:00 CET

Improvements to CW based on your feedback

Cubic Worlds always wants to make sure that you enjoy your time on the server, and occasionally we run surveys to get feedback from players in order to decide what are the best improvements we should make.

The most recent of these polls* produced a very interesting result – over 100% of people who responded felt that the main problem with playing on Cubic Worlds was that it simply wasn’t classy enough:

Fortunately, after a great deal of work and several constructive teabreaks, I’m delighted to be able to let you know that Smoke and I have fixed this problem and you’ll be able to enjoy a properly posh CW very soon!

Thanks to everyone who voted – you did a wonderful job, and helped us to do the same, if we do say so ourselves!

* Sadly, due to problems with our forum, the original post for the poll has become unavailable – this screenshot was taken shortly after it ended.

Weekend Event 23/03 – Skyblock Wars Classic


“Be extremely subtle, even to the point of formlessness. Be extremely mysterious, even to the point of soundlessness. Thereby you can be the director of the opponent’s fate.”

Unfortunately, Sun Tzu never fought any battles over an infinite void, so his wisdom in that regard might be a bit flaky…

Event: Skyblock Wars Classic
Date: Saturday 23rd March
Time: 12:00 PDT / 15:00 EDT / 19:00 GMT / 20:00 CET

Note: You fine people in the USA are probably on daylight savings time now, whereas the UK and Europe don’t put our clocks forward for another couple of weeks. Hopefully these times are right. Time zones are hard.
