Double XP Weekend
Well Ladies and Pomegranates, our first Double XP weekend was a massive success, we are happy to announce that similar special events will be spawned in the coming weeks...
"Cool story, needs more dragons."
Welcome back reader. Well if you've made it to this page then you must have noticed the recent website changes and addition of the new Events Page. This was the first change on the website in a long time, and it's only the beginning. Prepare to see the a whole array of new updates and overdue polishes on the site. The following images are of the current Top Players for this month. They have been beautifully taken by our one and only xStarryDusk, and will be showcased on the upcoming Gallery Page. Here one will also find artistic fruitabulous shots, informative images, and advertisment material for new plugins and sale items.
The introduction of the new staff application has been an enormous success, I'd like to personally thank every one of you who took the time to submit an application and offer support to the team, we really appreciate it! In saying that, it makes it was harder to select those to make it through to Trial, all entries were very well written and flaunted an impressive arsenal of maturity and experience. The new Trial(s) will be promoted by the middle of this week, so be sure to congratulate them!
This week has seen the promotion of MOD Pebbles, who has successfully completed her trial and is now a moderator. She has shown she is just the girl for the position, and we couldn’t be more excited to have her as part of the team.
Okay, if you think you have what it takes to write a post like this one at the end of every week, then you may be considering the role of Event Manager. Firstly, however, be warned; you will be in the spotlight and players on the server will to towards you as the fun, interactive Games Host. As fun as it is, it is also very time consuming and requires much mental power. Sorry if I'm being blunt, but it is not a 'cruisy' role managing events. If I haven't made you soil your pants yet, and you are still interested, splendid! AUZombie will be messaging all current applicants about organising a Teampseak interview throughout the week. We love the interest, and let's raise the bar!
The Hall of Fame
Here-ye FruitNuggets to the fabled Hall of Fame. Let's congratulate the newest promotions in the famous fruitabulous hall!
Are you single? Fear not, Minecraft is scientifically proven to be one of the best ways to meet your soul-mate. Which is why FruitServers have the Marriage plugin. Simply sniff around for people you think may be your type, and ask a staff member to be the priest for your very own wedding! Here are some notable weddings that went down this week:
3teve - jacobfrybones
Blocker06 - Dark_Fade
Eraze - JedPlaysMC
Nathisttic - Carabella41
TheGnomeNinja - XRainbownerd18X
The HighRoller i$ the highe$t donator on the $erver, here i$ where we acknowledge their effort$ and $upport and publically $tate any runner-up$ that may be threatening the HighRoller. For a long time our Goldsta from the fi$htank ha$ held tightly on that HighRoller tag, although only thi$ week ha$ he ea$ed his gra$p. Blocker06 $natched the Golden Snitch for a preciou$ 3 minutes before Goldsta triumphed and won back the crown.
We are preparing big bonuses for the HighRoller through a number of plugins shortly, so it will be well worth it to fight for the crown in the hopes that Goldsta will let up.
Note: The HighRoller has a '$' before their username in-game
Feast your eyes on the highlights of our community forum!
