This year’s Christmas Island, a stunningly beautiful winter holiday paradise, is now open for all players on the server to explore! Several hidden secrets and easter eggs (or should that be Christmas eggs?) are scattered around the snowy landscape. How many can you find?
All of the info you’ll ever need about the island, including how to get there, can be found on this thread in our forum. Enjoy!
After much hand-wringing, wailing, raging, and general despair, I’m very happy to say that Cubic Worlds will be back online later today!
The downtime over the past month was due to our previous host, HostBlaze, being bought out by MCProHosting. I hope that we’ll be running smoothly again as we head towards a holiday season that’s full of cake, marmots, creepers, and most importantly, cubes!
One important note: Please remove the server’s old address from your Minecraft bookmarks. It’s under new ownership and is most definitely not family safe.
Our new addresses are:
- IP: 188.8.131.52:31879
- Shortcut: play.cubicworlds.net:31879
Thank you all for your patience! See you online soon, and meanwhile, join our IRC channel for news on the cutting edge.
Get your enchanted kippers out of the fridge and prepare yourselves for the craziest PvP event you’ve ever seen!
In Stomp you must fishslap your enemies before they do the same to you – become the last man standing in one of four masterfully built arenas! Magical fish not enough to get the job done? There’s more weird and wonderful equipment that you can take three picks from to help you become king of the hill, so join us on Friday 3rd October and Sunday 5th October at around 19:00 GMT to take part!
Also coming up during this week and over the weekend is PSTIM #5 where we’ll be playing Prop Hunt in Garry’s Mod. The server will be up for a test session on Thursday 2nd October at around 19:00 GMT, with two main events happening on Saturday 4th October at 09:00 and 18:00 GMT.
“Whoa. It’s, like, totally green, man…”
This weekend will also see us paint green the names of some new Citizens – it’s been slightly longer than the usual fortnight gap between promotions so there are quite a few names on the list…
You can see a full list of Citizens-to-be over on our forum, here. As always, expect there to be plenty of cake!
Though we’ve not mentioned them yet on our blog, over the last month or so we have been picking out a selection of different games to play together as part of our PSTIM events. Learn more here!
This time around we’ve decided to play Terraria. A Cubic Worlds server will be running for it throughout the coming weekend. You’ll be able to dig your way to victory starting at around 08:30 GMT on Saturday 13th – I wonder how many bosses we’ll be able to kill?
The server will be reset for closing event at around 19:00 GMT on Sunday 14th. Two teams will compete in the Oresome Finale to see who can mine (or steal!) the most ores and store them safely in their fort! It’s guaranteed to be something different and it may even run without some unexpected problem… *innocent whistle* See you there!
Following the recent appointment of three new Mods for the server – Koads, SmokeAndMirrors, and brickviking, this weekend it’s time for some more promotions as we hold our second Citizen Day! New Citizens have been listed on our forum here and the green paint will be splattered around throughout the weekend. Congratulations to all involved!
Also taking place tomorrow, Saturday the 19th, will be the third Voxellian Rules Leaf Spleef Tournament. Perhaps you’ll be able to wrestle the champion’s crown from a field of zealous contenders – but only if you attend from around 18:00 GMT!
See you there!
“I never knew trees could start wars…”
In a parallel dimension, a small collection of islands floating amidst the void are engulfed in perpetual conflict. The great Order of Birch and the noble House Spruce seek to end once and for all their bitter feud. Whose side will you choose?
The leaves will start to fall at around 19:00 GMT on Saturday 28th June. Pick your side carefully…
But that’s not all! Following the Skyblock Wars event will be the server’s first official Citizen Day when some of our Members will be painted green and enjoy Citizenship under our recently revised rules. You can find a list of names due for promotion on this thread of our forum, and promotions will start happening at around 20:30 GMT and throughout the weekend for anyone on that list who can’t attend. Come celebrate the occasion with us – see you there!
“Dude, do you even DROP?”
Somehow, our event that goes by the name of “The DROP” has grown in strength! It seeks to obliterate anyone who is foolish enough to test their mettle against it. Will that person be you? Do you have what it takes to survive the increasingly difficult falls into a field of razor-sharp glass?
This infernal machine has new tricks up its sleeve to ensure no-one can achieve a flawless victory! Show it who’s boss tonight at around 18:00 GMT and earn some niftybeans prizes while you’re at it!
Break out the shovels!
After a long hiatus it’s time once again to see who can claim the crown of Cubic Worlds Grandmaster Spleefer. There’s already a fearsome list of opponents who have signed up, and you can add your name to the list by posting on the event’s forum thread! Be sure to get in while there’s still room!
You can keep an eye on the brackets as they stand over here on Challonge, though things will likely change before the tournament actually happens on Saturday 7th June from 18:00 GMT onwards.
Get ready to punch your opponent straight out of the ring!
Our Ice Sumo event is a timeless classic and perfect for folks who might not otherwise enjoy PvP. Contenders will step into the circular field of magical ice and attempt to knock their enemy out of the arena before they have chance to do the same to you!
I’m reasonably sure there will be prizes, and if enough people attend, there could even be a proper tournament! Put on your best sumo suit and psyche yourself up. It should be a blast.
The event will begin at around 18:30 GMT tomorrow, Saturday the 31st of May.
