Hello everyone! Today we’re announcing our exciting 5 Year Anniversary Update! Mineplex officially came to be in 2013 after a merge between 2 servers, in the years after we have continued building onto that foundation. In those 5 years since, we have reached over 23 million unique players and we've gotten to release some amazing games, cosmetics, features, ranks and even partnered up with Microsoft to create an official server for the Bedrock platform.
But of course none of this would exist without you, our players. That’s why this update is chock full of stuff for you! Feeling nostalgic? We’ve got some old games making a temporary comeback! Want something more overpowered? For short periods of time we’re replacing some of our most popular gamemodes with OP versions. Are you a Bedrock player and have you been craving a new game? We’ve got you covered! Want to earn more XP? How about double? And we’re topping all of that off with an exclusive Particle Effect and Title which you will only be able to get during this special event. Check the changelog below for more information!
5 Year Anniversary Update
Exclusive Title and Particle
During this event you’ll be able to get an exclusive particle effect and title. Keep in mind that you can only get these during our Anniversary Event so make sure to log onto the server before the event ends and head over to Sam the Slime for more info on how to get these cosmetics!
Retro Games and Hub
We’re temporarily re-releasing some old games during this event. You’ll be able to find these under the featured ‘Retro Games’ NPC in the main lobby. These servers are set to rotate through some of our old (remastered) games. You’ll also notice that the pre-game lobby in these servers is our old 2014 Tree Hub, which I’m sure will make some of you happy. The games you’ll find in this rotation are as follows:
- Milk The Cow
- Squid Shooters
- Tug of Wool
- Dragons Teams
Over the next few weeks you’ll notice that some games might be replaced by their OP variant. These will switch up every couple of days. OP games are what you think they are, they’re extravagant and over-powered versions of their originals. We’re starting off with OP Bridges and eventually Survival Games and Cake Wars will have their turn too, definitely keep an eye out if you’re interested. Keep in mind that the OP variants will not count towards your statistics.
This one shouldn’t need much explanation. During the entire Anniversary Event you will earn double the amount of XP on both our Java and Bedrock servers. So if you’ve always wanted to achieve a certain level, grind, grind, grind!
Bedrock Dragons Release
And to end it all off we’ve released one of our classic Java gamemodes on our Bedrock servers. Survive the assault of the Ender Dragons the longest and come out on top! Dragons is now playable on xbox, windows 10 and mobile devices.
We hope you all enjoy this update as much as we’ve enjoyed making it for you. Thank you all so much for making 5 years of Mineplex possible, we couldn’t have done it without you. Here’s to another 5!
