Empire Minecraft News: November 2017

Discussion in 'Empire News' started by Krysyy, Nov 6, 2017.

  1. It's been a while since we did one of these, so I apologize if it's not as pretty as it used to be. Time has simply flown by this year, like a Turkey trying to escape someone after its Turkey Slicer *hint hint*
    So let's get started...;)

    No More Haunts and Spooks
    With the nightly update, Aikar disabled the holiday event for Halloween. You can no longer trade candy for points. The /hscore and /smpscore commands allow players to track the highest point earners overall and on each SMP. Top 10 winners of the GLOBAL competition only will receive 25,000r and 5,000 tokens each. Winners of each server will have their names displayed in the Empire Wiki with pride as their prize.

    The GLOBAL winners of the 2017 version are as follows:
    • 1/2: azoundria and Kikudusk (1255)
    • 3: VermiciousKid (1039)
    • 4: Lomax70 (957)

    Builders, Builders, Building Everywhere!
    As you may have seen, we've added a new build team member Jelle68 to the team. Please welcome them, as this may have been a tad delayed due to my second bit of news.

    As a result of her dedication to the build team projects, as well as just being plain amazing at what she does, I am pleased to announce that CDJS is now a Build Team Leader. Unlike other leaders, she is not a Staff member, but she does have a fancy title on the forums denoting her new rank. I look forward to the work that Simon and CDJS will produce as they work together as our Team Leads. If you enjoyed the Easter event, then you'll LOVE the Holiday event coming up in December. We're in planning stages now and already looking to get building this next week. #secrets

  12. Aikar didn't get the memo and can't restart it really, so it had to end early. That's why it stopped working overnight.

  13. yayyyy cd deserves it she puts in tons of work unlike *clears throat* some of the OTHER build team members
  14. Congrats to all, but Might i suggest some rules for the next Halloween type event? I had a few members spam my PM's and tell me to go give them candy after i have told them many times that I am not doing the event, and that i am busy. There where even those who sent messages in spam every hour for several hours to the point where i gave up, and did not log on during the Halloween event. So maybe in the future something like do not spam players pm's asking as there will be some penalty. I am sure many new players who just joined do not want to hear that as well.

    Anyways Congrats to all the Promotions, and to build team leader CD!
  15. Thanks everyone for the congratulations! I'm looking forward to working more with the team and taking on a bit more responsibility. Congratulations to all of the Halloween event winners!

    Leave my team alone, but also ty :p
