    Today the Bedrock server turns 5 years old. To celebrate this milestone, GI and I are introducing a big Cake Wars update along with the return of Bomb Lobbers. Additionally, double XP has been temporarily turned on and the treasure hunt in the lobby has now been changed to be Cake Wars themed.

  7. Wooo! I loved testing this update - there are so many new changes, especially QOL, that I love. It's unfortunate that the Sweet Tooth kit didn't make the cut, but I'm super content with the update overall. I feel as if CW on Bedrock now looks way more polished than in the beginning. :)

    It felt so nice having my little notes appreciated and applied as well to make the update better. Gyro is truly carrying. Thank you to all of GI, the rest of QA/T and anybody else that helped make this happen!

  10. Wooo happy birthday Bedrock! The timing of this update is spot on. I haven't played Cake Wars on Bedrock in a while but I've been keeping up with all the changes and suggestions that Bedrock GI have been putting forward, so it's great to see them finally become reality! CW seems a lot more consistent now and I'm sure this update will make for better gameplay and enjoyment overall.

    Thank you and well done to gyro, Bedrock GI, and all those who may have had a role in producing or testing this update. Enjoy everyone, guaranteed I'll be hopping on Bedrock to try it out :)

  13. Happy 5th birthday to Bedrock! This is amazing, I loved Bomb Lobbers and it's nice to see it return. The Cake Wars update is something everyone's been wanting. The double XP is a nice little bonus. We all knew that a big update would come soon, and this is fantastic! Thanks to Gyro and Game Insights for planning this wonderful update, I'm so excited!

    Happy 5th Birthday to the Bedrock Platform! I’m so happy to be apart of the Platform as a Community Member and Staff Member. <3
    This update is really epic, and I know it’s been something a lot of players have been waiting for. I cannot express how EXCITED I am to see this QOL update for Bedrock! I cannot wait to play both Bomb Lobbers and the new Cake Wars Update. I would certainly agree with Mae, CakeWars is definitely more polished than it ever has been on the Bedrock Platform, and I am just so thankful to everyone who worked on this update. Not to mention, the double XP is like the sprinkles on top of the cake! Again, huge thank you to the Development Team and GI Team for working on this update, and I think I know what I’ll be doing today.

  16. Happy birthday to Bedrock! This update is super exciting, I know during the Christmas event I thoroughly enjoyed playing Bomb Lobbers when it made its return then and I'm super excited that it's back permanently. It's a super fun game mode to play, and I can't wait to play it once I hop on.

    Although I don't play Cake Wars too often, I'm still excited to see all of the changes to the game with this update. Personally, my favorite change has to be the addition of HP above player's heads as I know a lot of the time when I'm fighting someone it's hard to tell if they're low or not but this will be extremely useful for that. Overall though, I'm extremely excited about this update and can't wait to hop on and experience everything new as well as get some Double XP!

  17. Yay! Thanks for everything you do gyro and everyone who helped with this update! You guys are actually amazing :))

  19. Ayyy, another fantastic update from gyro and the gi team! Glad to see this update out, many players will enjoy it. Keep up the great work.

  20. The time has finally come! Cake Wars desperately needed an update and it finally got it! Great update but I was hoping we would get new maps with it or even Solo Cake Wars LTM. Double XP though, its awesome. I guess the maps were not ready for launch and would come at a later date?
