Welcome one and all to the November recap! The festive season has arrived, Christmas decorations are being put up, and people have already begun singing carols. Your friendly neighbourhood Grinchsta enjoys none of these things so he's sitting here tonight writing up a monthly post for everyone's reading pleasure. If you also prefer reading and writing to singing and decorating, you should pull up a seat right next to mine and have a gander at our little recap.
The silly season is upon us again, and we have been busy little elves getting everything ready for FRUITMAS, and we are very excited to tell you all the fun stuff we have in store during December. To begin with starting today you can head to /warp advent to receive a daily present from our Fruitmas Advent Calendar, make sure you log in each day, as you can only claim one prize a day. We also have Christmas Mail during the month, visit the Elf at /warp mail to send a special Christmas message and gift to your friends, they will be able to collect their mail on Christmas day.
Make sure you join us on Friday at 8pm when we will have the grand opening of our amazing Christmas area! We have lots planned for the night, including taking a Selfie with H1N9 Claus, a Christmas Skin Contest, and a Christmas Drop Party. So come in your most festive skin, visit H1N9 Claus, and you may win a special prize. It's beginning to look a lot like Fruitmas! ~Ahtnamas80
Throughout December, FruitSkyblock will be hosting multiple special events. You'll have a chance to get your hands on tons of unique items during Skyblock's 12 Days of Christmas, starting on the 15th and ending on the 26th. There will also be plenty of unique events being hosted, some of which I'm told have never before been hosted on Skyblock! Get excited for a couple of new themed SkyWars maps as well! A sneaky elf named Ascacos also mentioned something special happening sometime during the month, the pesky bugger got away before I could ask him more questions...
The long awaited FruitPrison finally landed in November, we're proud to announce it was a huge success! This wouldn't have been possible without the dedicated staff team who committed many hours to ensuring launch went as smoothly as possible, and the wonderful players who've given FruitPrison another chance. There's much more planned for FruitPrison now, most of which won't be spoiled just yet, although you should keep an eye out for lots of quality of life changes in the coming weeks. There will also be one unique item available every day in the lead-up to Christmas starting December 1st as well as themed events being run throughout the month. Details will be posted on discord!
Is it just me or is it getting cold in here? FruitPixelmon's spawn has been inundated with snow giving us a small chance of spawning the fabled Kyurem! Get used to the Winter Wonderland for a little while, even our tournament area will be undergoing a little makeover to suit. Similar to FruitPrison, there will be one unique item available every single day starting December 1st in the lead-up to Christmas, as well as themed events and tournaments being hosted throughout the month. Keep an eye on discord for more details!
A massive thank you to everyone who came to the FruitSchoolies event on friday night! The Slice was a great 'hit' and everyone seemed to have a great time. Thank you to all of the staff who ran DJ sessions over the course of the weekend as well. It is one of our more unique events. A special thanks to benjabot as well who coded the DJ plugin. ~H1N9
November was phenomenally successfully across the Fruitservers network, a huge thank you to everyone who contributed to each server crushing their donation goals. We can't wait to unveil all of the special surprises our amazing teams have been working on!
Reminder to everyone that votes are tallied up for the post a few hours before the end of the month so sneaking in a couple of votes right at the end may not help. Props to everyone for keeping voting as competitive as it has been, looks like everyone is eager to win themselves a voucher! Great work Blank124 on 1st, Modestyy on 2nd, and Raqus on 3rd. Keep up the great work everyone, please message a Community-Manager or H1N9 to redeem your voucher.
Not nearly enough entries this time around, quite disappointing as we saw upwards of a dozen people beginning work on their builds in the first week of November. Fantastic work AidenMcG and MaeDaTigerMeow on your vouchers, please message a Community-Manager or H1N9 to redeem it. The build competition will be going on an indefinite hiatus until we figure out how to get more of you lazy fruit loops to participate. Clearly people don't like the massive participation prizes we hand out so it's back to the drawing board for us!
FruitServers is an amazing community because of the people that are a part of it. Every month one player and one staff member from Survival, Skyblock, Prison, and Pixelmon are selected and acknowledged for their contribution to the server, whether it be ingame or behind the scenes.
Player of the month Survival - _Panda14_. _Panda14_ was an easy choice for player of the month, he is always around chatting on discord, or hosting mini games in the game area he built, and his efforts during the end reset made the night a lot of fun for everyone who was there! Congratulations Panda, we have all had a blast spending time on the server with you. ~Ahtnamas80
Player of the month Skyblock - MaeDaTigerMeow. Spooky skins, musical genius, memes, a kind soul, and a wicked sense of humour; these are all things that describe MaeDaTigerMEOW. Since she joined us, people have had nothing but sweet things to say about this angel. Her presence is a gift and we are the lucky recipients! Yay Mae! ~Gylfmeister
Player of the month Prison - Rainbow_Kyurem. Young Rainbow was about as hyped as anyone for the revamp, he has very quickly become one of our most loyal players. He's also one of the few people who takes time out of his day to assist other players whenever they require help, your presence is certainly a welcome one Rainbow. Keep it up!
Player of the month Pixelmon - mropb. Although he's one of our quieter players, mropb quickly made a name for himself soon after he joined FruitPixelmon through his friendly personality and his affinity for interacting with players to assist them whenever they need help. He's also known for being friendly on our other servers, good stuff mropb!
Staff of the month Survival - Mrrandom287. A lot of work goes into organising things behind the scenes, and MrRandom spends countless hours working hard to make sure that everything runs as smoothly as possible. Our weekly events, Halloween events and the upcoming Fruitmas events would not be the same without all his hard work! Thank you MrRandom! ~Ahtnamas80
Staff of the month Skyblock - Ascacos. This sneaky elf has been busier than most realise, busy toiling away preparing some special surprises while juggling many other commitments that would undoubtedly limit any other staff member's playtime significantly. Ascacos is different, and his loyal team knows that. That's why they've chosen to acknowledge his herculean efforts this time around, well done Asc!
Staff of the month Prison - spleggeti. If there's a record for how many times this award has been won by an individual staff member, that honour would surely belong to spleggeti by now. His consistent efforts on FruitPrison have been a significant contributing factor in FruitPrison's newfound success. Keep up the great work spleggeti.
Staff of the month Pixelmon - Nebula_. Nebula_, more commonly known by his contemporaries as Probopass, has been one of FruitPixelmon's strongest proponents since it first launched over five months ago. Thankfully he has scaled back his 10-hour sessions to a much healthier routine, although his presence is impactful all the same. Fantastic work Noobula.
Survival, Skyblock, Prison and Pixelmon 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 always we 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!
This humble grinch thanks you for reading his Christmas preparation post, see you all online!
