For those of you who haven’t read this month’s newsletter (you totally should by the way), you wouldn’t know that Community Management has planned out an event season that’ll last for the next 3 months! We'll be hosting 3-4 events a month that are a mix of Bedrock, Java & Forums so that everyone can be included in the fun. This new season started off with the Mineplex Oscars and will last until the end of October, tournaments will also be sprinkled in along the way! Down below, you'll find a list of events planned for the next few months, keep in mind some of them don't have set dates yet due to our busy schedules so make sure you keep an eye out for announcements! August Speed Builders Tournament [Bedrock] Are you good at building? Come join us for our first ever Bedrock Speed Builders Tournament.

Date: September 3rd Blast to the Past [Java] Over the years the event team has created a lot of awesome maps, fun storylines, and whacky game mode combinations.

Date: October 29th This is our plan for right now, but we have more coming! Don’t worry Bedrock players, more events for you guys will be announced soon*. We’re so excited to be hosting again and we hope to see a ton of you at our upcoming events! *Bedrock has very limited event hosting resources compared to Java. This makes it super difficult for us to plan unique events but we're planning on doing at least one lobby hangout event per month, as well as trying to sprinkle in more unique ideas when they come. Keep an eye out on the events channel in MPD & also the events section on the forums for event announcements.
