Hey, everyone! Check it out - this month's build contest theme is...
We thought we would take a break from the Halloween theme we do every year, but that's not to say your builds can't be spooky scary! All standard Build Contest rules apply: builds must contain at least 1000 blocks, must be built in survival, and no pixel art unless your build meets the block requirement without it. Upload 2 screenshots of your build to the Gallery by October 24th at 12am EST, and voting will take place the following week. These prizes may look a bit familiar:
1st place - $50 credit to spend on anything in the Donation Shop
2nd place - $25 to spend in the Donation Shop
3rd place - $15 to spend in the Donation Shop
We're definitely getting into the spirt of Halloween this month. Speaking of the Donation Shop, if you head on over there, you'll see we've added some very special heads. This month only, exclusive Halloween heads will be available for purchase with credits or real money. Anyone who donates $25 or more during this month (doesn't have to be on heads) will receive an exclusive custom item: the "Hades" scythe!
Additionally, you can also join in on the spooky scary festivities in game by collecting Halloween tokens, which you can obtain by killing Nether mobs. You can walk around and hunt mobs as normal, or you can check out the special arena at /warp token to gain tokens faster -- however, it is dangerous there and keep-inventory is NOT on! Use at your own risk. You can trade in Halloween tokens at spawn for items, including another Halloween exclusive custom item: the Poltergust 3000 from Luigi's Mansion!
Finally, regarding the 1.11 update announced last weekend: we know you all have lots of questions but as of now, we are still undecided on what will be happening regarding the world. We will continue to look into it as the update gets closer/releases, but for now, we don't have answers for you quite yet!
One more thing. We had a blast at Minecon and we hope that some new faces we met there will stick around, and if you couldn't make it to Minecon, don't worry -- keep an eye out for announcements regarding the Minecon 2016 Cape Giveaway!
That's all for now! Have a spooky, scary, and safe month!
