    Brand New Additions
    • Prestige Top
      You can now earn buycraft giftcards for being one of the players with the highest prestige at the end of the first month! The following prizes will be given out one month after V5's release. Note: You can use /ptop in-game to see the top prestiged players.
      • 1st - $250 Buycraft Giftcard
      • 2nd - $100 Buycraft Giftcard
      • 3rd - $50 Buycraft Giftcard
    • Pet Backpacks
      You can now store items in your pets backpack! If you have a pet, all you need to do is shift + right click to open it's backpack. You can store items in it, and automatically sell items from it to the mine vendors! Pet backpacks are automatically full size, so they don't need to be upgraded.
    • Sumo
      We have added a brand new mini-game called Sumo. The objective of this mini-game is to knock your opponent off of the platform into the water, the first person to do this three times in a single match will win. We have 3 beautiful arenas and an ELO system set up for this mini-game, and prizes will be rewarded to the top 3 players with the most elo every month. Click here to watch StimpyPvP play this mini-game on a different server.
    • Luck Enchant
      We have added a brand new custom enchant for pickaxes, called Luck. This enchant has a chance of turning the blocks that you mine into lucky blocks automatically. The higher the level, the higher chance to turn blocks into Lucky Blocks. The cost for this enchant at Lv 1 is 100 ETokens. We have more new pickaxe enchants coming soon as well.
    • mcMMO
      We have decided to add a very limited version of mcMMO to the server. The only skills that you can level up is Mining and Fishing, so it will not effect pvp or anything else whatsoever.
    • Fishing Rewards
      You can now get rewards from fishing and leveling up your mcMMO fishing level! Depending on your fishing level, you can get Candy, ETokens, Crate Keys and money all from fishing! A pond has been added to every mine, so you can fish anywhere.
    • Lucky Crates
      You can now find Lucky Crates in the free worlds! These crates will spawn whenever you mine a certain amount of blocks, and can only be spawned in the free worlds. You can get ETokens, Money, Crate Keys, Candy and sometimes even ranks :eek:
    • Candy Party
      A Candy Party is event that is hosted every 3 hours at /warp candyparty. At this event, money falls from the sky for several minutes in the form of bank notes.

      Each bank note is worth 2% of whatever the current balance of the candy party is. The balance increases whenever someone purchases something at the virtual /shop, and the balance is reset after the candy party is over.

      You can use /candyparty in game for an explanation if you ever forget how it works, and you can go to /warp candyparty to see how long until the next party starts.
    • Supply Crates
      Supply crates will now drop in the pvp arena every 3 hours. These supply crates will contain exclusive gear, ETokens, Crate Keys, mine bombs, candy & more! A total of 25 supply crates will spawn, and you can use /supplycrates drops to see their coordinates. You can also use /supplycrates time to see when the next drop will be.
    • King of the Hill
      We have finally added a King of the Hill event! Every 6 hours, a KOTH will start in the main Free World. Whoever captures this KOTH will receive a reward chest with extremely rare, exclusive and valuable items in it. You can use /koth in-game to see when the next KOTH will start.

    First xd

    Stick pistons and slime blocks yay xd
    For the better or worse? (Guessing worse)
    Again, worse or better?
    Whats the point of mining? We already have like eff 70 fortune 70 pickaxes and OP custom enchants.
    Why is it called a candy party if it's money? I was expecting candy to drop from the sky, name should be moneyparty or something lol
    So is pvp enabled in free world now?
    How do you get to the arena? (for example to duel someone you do /duel)
    So when you get to a certain amount of blocks mined, a crate spawns in the free world randomly and anyone can find it? And for people without freeworld, will a chest still spawn if they reach the amount of blocks mined even though they don't have access to freeworld?
    Is it a FFA sort or thing or can you take it over with your gang? And if with your gang, does only one person get the chest?
    Just some comments on what I read, no hate or anything here xd
    Glad to see some updates coming out and hope they continue c:

    Question: Will the KOTH be limited to only people that have the freeworld?

    Yes, you will need access to the free world to participate.

    If you bought it with irl money yes, you should keep that, but if you won it from a crate or something then probably not.

    oh just realized you said you bought it in V2. You will keep it just like you did in V3 and V4.

    @Amazing is the RPS made so it's not a guaranteed profit if you play long enough? I remember it being that way in v2 or v3 (I forget which) and I grinded up billions leaving a bot doing the command

    You're playing against other players, and there's a 5% tax on each game. So no this will not be an issue.

    I would like to say thank you for actually using the document I spent forever typing up. It's nice to see a lot of the things I suggested get added/fixed. Looks great. :3

    Really nice to see these added in.

    Nerf means worse, buff means better.

    It's called a candy party because it sounds better :p

    PvP will only be enabled around the KOTH, not the entire free world.

    You can /duel your friends with sumo, or just do /sumo and join a queue to find a random match.

    No, you mine in the free world and once you reach a certain amount of blocks broken a lucky chest will spawn near you.

    And only the person that captures the KOTH will receive the reward chest.

    I guess it sounds better but it's misleading.
    Whats the point of mining in free world in the first place lol, to collect cobblestone?
