News from H1N9

Some amazing new disguises have been added to the donor store this week! Evoker Fangs, Llama Spit, Shulker Bullet, Arrow Disguises and Wither Skull can now all be purchased. Many staff might be showing them off ingame as well.

Beyond the Bowl

It has been a busy week with the staff this week, the first big difference is the change to the staff ranks, gone are the old V-Mod and V-Admin labels, and now those ranks will be called Mod+ and Admin+, it is the same staff in the same ranks, these new names are designed to help newer players understand the ranks on the server.  On the survival server we saw Koszmar being promoted to trial-mod, so make sure you congratulate him when you see him online.  The skyblock server saw a lot of action this week, firstly on a sader note we said goodbye to Syrus and Los_Corruptos, who had to step down from their staff positions to focus on things in their real life, we thank them for all their hard work, and wish them the very best for the future!  On a more happier note we saw Witty and Abstrxt earn a promotion to moderator, and Verlisper and Deadly_Arachnid earn promotions to Mod+, congratulations to everyone on their hard work and dedication to the server, don't forget to congratulate them in game.  Now for a secret surprise promotion!!  Congratulations to Dusty_Tornado for earning the promotion to Admin+, Dusty helped with the testing of the new rank tags, and thought his tag was left as an oversight, but I am happy to announce he has officially gained the rank of Admin+


We had a lot of fun this week playing Prop Hunt on Wednesday, with players searching in the wild for all the ingredients to make one of each coloured wool.  On Friday we got together for five nail biting rounds of bingo, congrats to all the winners!  Coming up next week we are playing TntRun on Wednesday on our BRAND NEW arena built by RedDeadFlame31 and on Friday we will see the return of another fun event - musical chairs!  Make sure you come online to join in the fun, events start at 8pm AEDT (Sydney Time)

Build Competition

The build competition theme for the month of March will be PvP Arenas! Players were very excited at the thought of their build being featured at spawn during November's build competition so we're letting you know from now that if your build is spectacular enough, we will be happy to host events on it! Your builds must be built individually (only one entry allowed per person) and finished by the 31st of March on the Creative Server. Please do not build any forms of chestrooms, pixel arts, spawners etc. We would love to see your creative side of building! If redstone is needed please keep it to a minimal! Happy Building, enjoy!

PLEASE NOTE: To enter this build competition, please find the competition on the forums and post you IGN and your plot coordinates on it… Or else you will not be entered into the competition.

Competition Rules
- Build must be finished by 31st March.
- Players are restricted to working individually.
- Build must be completed in the Creative Server.
- Do not build chestrooms, spawners, massive farms etc. We want creativity, not everyday things.
- Only one entry per individual.
- No pixel art!
- Keep redstone minimal if you have to use it.
- Do NOT copy anyone else's builds, not even ones you find on Google images!

That's a Rap!

And we have reached the end of another weekly post, so may the luck of the Irish be with you this week, and I look forward to seeing you all in the fruitbowl!
