    Twelve Days of Christmas Sale
    Today is the first day of our annual "Twelve Days of Christmas" sale. Almost every item on our buycraft is up to 80% off! The sale begins twelve days before Christmas Eve, featuring an extra, huge discount on a different item/category every day, until Christmas. The sale will continue after Christmas, but the flash sales on certain items will only be until then. As well as huge discounts and savings, each item bought through our webstore will give you a Christmas Cracker. The Christmas cracker can be opened by right clicking it to receive cool prizes.

    Another addition for the Holiday Sale are the Mystery Presents. This is an item you can buy for $5 on our Buycraft, which you then give to Santa at spawn to be "unwrapped". This will give you a random item from our webstore, ranging from /craft, worth $1.50, to a fully upgraded pre-built base with all the modules (including a spawner creeper grinder), worth over $120. You can choose to be generous and send this directly to someone else when buying, or give it to yourself. You also get 3 Holiday Gift Exchange presents to give away!


    Gift Exchange

    The Holiday Gift exchange is similar to something you may have seen if you have played Team Fortress 2 or Counter Strike: Global Offensive. You can purchase a gift for $1.00 on our store, or for 200 points ingame using /shop. Upon receiving this gift, you can right click with it to give it away. This gives a random reward from the list of Holiday-themed items to a random person on the server. The person giving the gifts also receives an item called "The Gift of Giving", and their amount of gifts given is added to their score (/santa top). The person with the most gifts given at the end of the Gift Exchange (a random day between January 1-7) wins huge prizes. For those who do not win the grand prize, each "The Gift of Giving" can be exchanged for prizes and items after the Gift Exchange is over!!

    The person who gives the most gifts this holiday season will receive:
    • Their own NPC at spawn, any spot they choose (within reason) until the next map reset.
    • Their name on a sign in the spawn building, as the "Most Generous Player"
    • A permanent Factions power boost of 12 power.
    • A 50% off coupon with 4 uses that can be used on any item in our donation shop. (Can not be used during other sales!)
    • A private drop party - with better items than normal drop parties - for them and their friends, or if they're feeling generous, everyone on the server!
    • More rewards coming soon, depending on how close the race for first is!

    Second Place will receive:
    • Their name on a sign in the spawn building, as the "Second Most Generous Player"
    • A permanent Factions power boost of 5 power.
    • A 25% off coupon with 3 uses that can be used on any item in our donation shop.
    Third Place will receive:
    • Their name on a sign in the spawn building, as the "Third Most Generous Player"
    • A 10% off coupon with 3 uses that can be used on any item in our donation shop.

    Present Hunt
    The Present Hunt is a fun "minigame" that we are trying for the first time this year. 100 Presents (Player heads with present skins) are hidden around spawn. The first one can be found in the spawn building (/spawn). Every 5 presents you find, you will earn a reward! These rewards get better every 5 presents you find. Anyone who can find every present will receive a huge reward, but this feat will become much harder when, on December 12, 100 more presents will be added around spawn!



    More Holiday content, like the Holiday Crate Key and Holiday Sale, as well as some new gameplay features, will be arriving mid December, so keep an eye out for those!


    Holiday Content
    We have been working on a lot of content for this holiday season! Many things have been added to the server over the last couple weeks, including:

    Holiday Crate Key
    The holiday themed crate is here! The crate includes 14 exclusive, holiday themed items that can only be obtained from opening the crate. You can get a key for the crate from our Buycraft, or for 250 points ingame (/shop).

    Drug Price Boosters
    Drug price boosters are now available on our Buycraft. You are able to purchase either random or all boosters. Random boosters multiply the price of one drug, at random. All boosters multiply the price of all drugs, but not by as much. These boosters last 1 hour, and multiple random boosters can be activated at the same time. This price boost is for all players, not just the person who activated the booster.

    Present Hunt Update
    Many players found all 100 presents within a day of being hidden, so last weekend we added 200 more. These are found everywhere in the spawn world, but also in every Easy difficulty parkour (/warp parkour). The new presents look slightly different from the old ones, so you are able to tell them apart. Anyone who finds a total of 100 presents before the end of December will receive a prize, but anyone who finds all 300 will get their head and a sign dedicated to them in spawn.

    VIP Player Markets
    After much request, we have added 16 new player markets that are rentable by VIP or any higher donator rank. These are located under the main markets, the staircase to them can be found at the beginning of the middle row of markets. They are a bit pricier ($7500 per day), but look much nicer than the above ground markets.

    Mini Boardgames

    If you get bored on the server, try out the new mini boardgames. These are 12 GUI boardgames, including favourites like Uno, Connect4, Checkers, and Apples to Apples, that can be played simply by doing the command "/games". Seven of these games support multiple players, so you can invite your friends, too.
