    Hello everyone, today we have a brand new update for Skywars.

    Skywars Changes:

    • Removed old Skywars Elemental kits
    • The elemental items can now be found in chests.
    • Added the "Pumpkin Pie" item which grants players Speed 1 for 5 seconds.
    • Added the "Zombie Guardian Egg" which spawns a zombie guardian where the egg lands to fight for you.
    • Knockback has been changed to be the same as Cake Wars.
    • Chest loot has been adjusted.
    • Chests can no longer be broken.
    • Increased the ore count in Solo, reduced the ore count in Teams.
    • Enchanting is now capped at Level 2.
    • Removed the Zombie Guardians in the centre of the map.
    • Throwable TNT can now direct hit.
    • Removed kit levels, players will be refunded during an update next week.
    • Changed the corruption block palette to look a lot nicer.
    • Added corruption back to the scoreboard.
    • Skywars Teams stats now count towards achievements.
    Kit levels will be refunded to all players as part of an update next week.
    These changes were suggested by the Game Insights team.

    Other Changes:
    • Fixed an issue where the item name would appear instead of the ability in the "killed player with weapon" message.
    • Tracking Compasses now appear when you first get teleported into the game.
    • Friends are no longer placed on the same team.
    • Party members are now shuffled when being placed on a team. To clarify, parties are still placed on the same team however, the order it attempts to place members of the party on a team is now randomised.
    • Removed spawn protection in One in the Quiver.
    • Fixed an issue where no back button would appear in the MPS game selection menu.
    • Fixed an issue where players would spawn in "invisible chunks".
    • Fixed an issue where gadgets like Melon Launcher, Flesh Hooks, wouldn't work in Game Lobbies.
    • Skyfall is no longer playable in MPS.
    • Water now only flows downwards in Bridges.
    • Fixed an issue in Bridges where Bombers would be able to duplicate their TNT.
    • Fixed an issue in Bridges where the bridges would spawn partially when the game started.
    • Fixed an issue in Bridges where crafting tables were unusable by other players.
    • Fixed an issue with "Kill players with fists" achievements would count if you switched item slots.
    • Fixed several issues in Speed Builders related to players quitting at unexpected times, causing rounds to skip or builds/holograms to remain.
    • Fixed an issue in Speed Builders where players could fall through the world in spectator mode.
    • Added the "pong" sound back to when the game is about the start.
    Let us know what you think, we're already working on the next update so stay tuned!

  11. pog (not for sw tho)

    Next update: "we're adding a kit to Speed Builders that allows you to skip builds because new players have it so hard that it's not fair. People who spend countless hours learning how to play shouldn't have a better chance of winning that randos."

  12. What are the tiers for each level of the tiered achievements? I maxed them out automatically. Also not pleased with the loot pool changes. I like a lot of the changes, but some of them just ruin the game for me.

  13. Interesting update. Skywars has been in need of an update for a while, so it's great to see this! I haven't played it too much yet, but I do like that you can still get some of the old kit abilities in chests instead of removing them completely. The addition of things like the speed pumpkin pie are interesting and provide a unique aspect. I used to play Skywars a lot, however I don't as much as I used to, so this will be a great way to get back into the game again.

  14. Ayy, Skywars update is now live! Thanks everyone for helping about that update especially to GI for creating plan for that update and to QAT as well as to GI for testing that.

    I hope it will be liked by players since it's actually almost rebranding of Skywars and first update for that game since 2018. Make sure to thank Sam aka Moppletop for creating all that. I'm so excited about what we are going to get in the near future, so be prepared.

  18. If it would be possible could you give some feedback on how it could be better? For example, what you would want to be modified from the current state, added from the current and old state and added back from the old state, that would be helpful for them to take away as we are listening to player feedback!

    I honestly think it's a nice update, hopefully we see these more regularly and with regular feedback and regular updates, hopefully, more updates will get more positive community reaction. I know people are upset about the SkyWars change but give it a few days, change is hard and I remember people were somewhat upset about the Butch queuing system but now people seem to like it as a feature so give it a chance.

    And one more thing, parties have not been "removed" in a sense that you can't get on the same team anymore, that simply means that if you're in a group of say 10 people in Cake Wars but the teams are only 4, the people that get on the same team in the party are randomized each time.
