Hello again Fruitsters, it feels good to be back in the driver's seat after what we can only describe as another chaotic month. Props to young H1 for crafting up a stellar post while I was busy - he's actually quite helpful when he isn't spending his time harassing demski or threatening to lick staff members. Anywho, let's move onto all the exciting things that happened this month!
As always, Survival continues to boast impressive numbers since the reset and the brand new FruitTrees has been hugely successful - a lot of work has gone into this so we're glad players are enjoying it. Over the course of the month we've also seen solutions to lag implemented and important places like warp pvp open up for some of the more bloodthirsty players. Another reason to celebrate - The End will be opened next Friday!
We were able to witness the much anticipated return of SkyWars, Vixxiie won't let me spoil much more but I'd say there's going to be some fun things to look forward to in March!
The Pursuit for Perfection on Prison continues - tonight we introduce planet 10 to the equation! Drop by and experience the beauty for yourself. Our humble Moderator team (which has been growing steadily) has been hard at work producing beautiful builds for each of the remaining unseen planets. Another much needed addition - players will now be able to sell mob drops! Young Opalz has also been working on a parkour course!
Our seasonal event for February was an absolute hit this year - congratulations to the small batch of winners who fought hard to come out on top!
A huge thank you to everyone who has contributed throughout February - special mention to Survival and Skyblock for another incredibly successful month. Our humble Prison server didn't quite make it there in the end, maybe next time!
Due to the number of winners this month, we're going to be running things a little differently using an idea suggested by H1. All of the top voters for February will go into a raffle and the winner will get a prize! This will be done while I'm in a discord channel sometime on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday. Those being entered into the raffle are: stockers, chuz, euphoriella, angarang, ndrbond, rutashi20, avalon03, opalz, and elrosecroize. Reminder that votes are tallied up prior to the post being written so some last minute votes may not get counted.
Take it away Rav!
It's time for you all to head over to the creative server as Build Competitions are back!!! It's been a while but you can finally dust the cobwebs off of your world edit tools and get that creativity flowing! For the return of our monthly build competition we are asking you to build us a TREEHOUSE !!! We are so excited to see all of your entries so please enter for your chance to win!
- The build must be a Maximum of a 80 x 80 blocks. To stay within this boundary, we suggest creating a border to work within.
- The build must have some sort of tree and some sort of house!
- Build must be completed by March 30th 8pm AEDST.
- You must work alone, if you do not you will be disqualified.
- All entries must be built on the creative server.
- As cool as pixel art is, this isn’t the place for it.
- Don’t copy another person’s work, whether it be from in or outside of the server. BE ORIGINAL!
- We need at LEAST 5 people to participate to hand out prizes, so spread the word!
- This build needs to have been started and completed within the month of March.
- Completed entries that don't earn a prize will net the builder a token on their server of choice.
FruitServers is an amazing community because of the people that are a part of it. Every month one player and one staff member from both Survival and Skyblock are selected and acknowledged for their contribution to the server, whether it be ingame or behind the scenes.
Player of the month Survival - ExpressoYourself. When she's online, you'll find her spending just about all of her time welcoming players back or helping others resolve issues. (I solemnly swear there was no bias in this vote)
Player of the month Skyblock - KeeDiggity. Described as kind, funny, and tolerant of the staff he's accidentally adopted (???) - KeeDiggity is everything we look for in players. Except for that adoption part. That part is a little weird.
Player of the month Prison - AutexCore. Active and always willing to engage in FruitPrison shenanigans, Autex has also been exemplary in assisting new players with anything they need help with.
Staff of the month Survival - Pixerative. When he isn't getting bullied by his fellow staff, Pix does a pretty good job over on Survival. He's also been busy grinding away at the wiki (while he isn't getting bullied by players) so let's make sure we thank Pix the next time we see him.
Staff of the month Skyblock -Gylfmeister. Stepping up and taking a leading role while others may be busy, Gylf has outdone herself throughout February and caught everyone's eye with her stellar performance.
Staff of the month Prison - Opalz. In all honesty the entire team deserves props this month , however Opalz will get a special mention for taking on his new role with such vigour and welcoming everyone with such warmth.
Survival, Prison, and Skyblock are lucky to have such strong moderating teams, however we are always accepting applications for all of our staff roles. Our wonderful Event and Build Teams in particular are still looking to grow so if you'd like to be a part of something special do consider looking into these roles. Think you have what it takes to join one of these fantastic teams? Submit an application at www.fruitservers.net/staff
As mentioned in previous months we always look forward to hearing feedback from you guys about possible improvements. If you have ideas, please share them with us either through the website, in-game, or via discord. We want to know what you think!
Help me spread awareness for Pix - #SavePixie
I look forward to seeing you all in-game!
End of Post.
