Well would you look at that – it seems that this month marks the server’s birthday! Wowzers! The image says it all, really…
Such a landmark naturally deserves some celebration and events to go with it! I’m pleased to say that alongside the piles of cake, there’ll be an event running the likes of which hasn’t been seen before! Or at least, not in a very long time. 😀
Besides other things, one event of the evening will be Whack-a-Meep, a family-friendly game of hockey using our good friend Meepling as the puck! This should start at around 18:30 GMT on Saturday.
But truth be told, this weekend only marks the start of things – be sure to stay tuned here and on the forum for more details over the coming days, as there’ll be more to take your attention!
This weekend sees that start of not just one but two events! There’s something for everyone, as long as you have a calculating mind and steady hands…
Kicking things off on 14th March is the beginnning of Kanzaki_Nao’s Chess Tournament – although signups are now closed, you can still cheer the players on as the tournament unfolds. Plan for checkmate and see the full match schedule on this thread of our forum.
Opening to everyone on 15th March and running for two weeks is the Super Build Contest 2: Marble Division, brainchild of OminousFire! Throwing the typical building contest on its head, you must carefully sculpt an interesting design from one of the pristine marble-quartz pillars. The twist? You can’t place blocks, so you’ll have to work around any mistakes! Again, the full details are on our forum.
Good luck and have fun!
“Third time’s the charm!”
Another event that we’ve tried to run in the past has been Capture the Tower, a competitive PvP capture-the-flag style game created by Macpants. For various reasons things just haven’t worked out in the past, but now we hope to give it the proper outing that it deserves!
Join us on Saturday 13th December at around 18:00 GMT to take part in some sweet tower-capturing fun! As always, more information is on our forum in this ‘ere thread.
“Ain’t no server downtime gonna stop the fish this time!”
Technical problems during October sadly meant we couldn’t host Stomp when we first advertised it, but we’re now finally able to announce that new dates have been set and you’ll be able to fishslap your enemies on two days over this coming weekend – Friday 5th and Sunday 7th at around 19:00 GMT!
Hope you’ll join us there for a PvP event that is guaranteed to be unique! Learn more on the official thread on our forum.
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!
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.
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!
