Hello Fruitsters, Ahtnamas80 here bringing you all the latest news from around the Fruitbowl. With the end of August we can finally say goodbye to Winter! Time to cast off those fluffy jumpers and woolly scarves and time to get out the sun block, sunnies and hats. We had a lot of fun around the servers during August, and it was really great to see everyone getting involved in the build comp and book week activities! This Sunday is Father’s Day, so to celebrate we will be running Dad themed events this weekend across the servers, so make sure you jump on to check those out. We have lots of other news to catch up on, so lets get into started…
Token Shop Update
Once again, B0GGSY has been hard at work bring exciting new content to the token shop:
Howdy once again fruitsters, B0GGSY here with some cool info on tokens! You may have seen me building a new room below warp token for a little bit now. Whilst some of you guessed it correctly and others still awaiting, I am releasing a new token armour set! Whilst exploring the nether you fell into lava, your gear became infused with the magma and resulted in a big increase in strength. Pick up the magma set before it cools down and disappears! Check out /warp token! (At the moment, when you purchase a piece of the magma set you will need to contact me (B0GGSY) to get the armour trim applied)
On another note, we have some more news! The next season of token tools have been launched as well! The third iteration of the colour series. Head on down to take a look and grab a few new flashy tools!
That's it from me! Stay fruity,
Custom Death Messages Perk
A long awaited perk has finally been updated! If you own the custom death messages perk on Survival, Skyblock or Prison. You are now able to customise even more types of deaths from falling into lava or being struck from the gods above from lightning! Big thanks to FreyCake for updating the perk for us!
August Build Comp
Fruity Builders, the August Build Competition has finally come to a close.
The build comp was a big hit this time around, gaining twelve incredible builds from both players and staff that blew all of our expectations out of the water.
Each submission fought tirelessly until the end, taking in consideration from every thoughtfully placed block and flower, each build gained over 100 points each. Well done!
We could sit here forever and talk about how lovely everyone’s builds are but this is still a competition! After hours of meticulous voting, our nine judges inspected every inch of the builds to give the fairest set of points they could based on a criteria of four; Creativity, Originality, Cohesiveness and Detail. The winning submissions seemed to hit each of these spot on with ease. It is clear to see hours of effort and thought went into every aspect of their builds and are incredibly deserving of their places.
In first place, having gained 318 points is Shivelry with their “Hideaway of the Kitsune Spirits,” a beautiful lush valley hideaway matched by the giant foxes who reside in the peaceful mountain top.
In second place with 247 points, is ettercap_ with “The Psychedelic Forests.” This magical biome is painted with colourful flora, colossal mushrooms and trees that hide the vibrant beauty hidden beneath.
In third place with a very close 246 points is AllSignsPoint2 with their “Caldera Redwood Forest,” a beautiful redwood forest that has mysteriously grown from the remnants of an ancient volcano.
Our top three will receive a special Build Competition Winner Chattag as well as little goodies for them to enjoy on the server.
While these three builders came out on top, all of our entrants will receive a prize in their respective brackets. The places for these submissions were very close, with most only having a 1 point difference from one another!
From 4th to 10th place we have Poshkid, Z0mb11_, starwolf2728, KawaGuardian, beescuit_, FlynnCake and Xoguap who will each gain 10k in-game cash, 1 token and 1 party key for the server of their choice.
And last but certainly not least, we have Dex in 11th place and MeekCoffee07 in 12th who will receive 5k in-game cash and 1 party key for the server of their choice.
We thank everyone who entered and took their time to create a beautiful submission for us to look through. No matter what you placed, please be proud of your efforts! They were incredible! We also thank our judges who took time out of their busy lives to help us in voting, we couldn’t have done it without you!
Until next time,
Ron and Madi
