Good Morning folks,

Before I get into this weeks post I would like to formally thank you all for the amazing turn out we had this past weekend. We peaked at a total of 1,560 players which is very hard to achieve nowadays. Kits had a consistent 300 players upon launch, Infernal had 1,000 in queue on SOTW, and Royale also had 1,000 in queue on SOTW. Our team has worked extremely hard to provide an exciting update for you all and we hope we delivered. With that being said, thank you for your constant love, trust and support you show us day in and day out. 💙

There were a few areas where we went wrong however. Royale did have crates that had contents above map kit, there were some features that were too over powered, and there were a decent amount of bugs we encountered with all the new features we introduced. We believe we have pin pointed everything and with that being said a list of everything can be found below, however before you read that I would just like to reiterate the following: Royale and Reforged will never have items for purchase above map kit. We started Royale and Reforged that way and that is exactly how we plan to continue. Enough rambling - all information you need to know for this week can be found below!


New Partner Packages
Available for purchase starting this Friday, October 25th at midnight.


It's finally here! New, unique items for you to enjoy in combat with friends and enemies. A list of all items can be found below. Heads up that we are using a new plugin for Partner Packages. We've thoroughly tested it for bugs, however if you find something that we missed report it to us on our forums for a prize! All old Partner Package items have been considered "retired" - select items have been added to our exclusive monthly crate. See the New Halloween Crate section for more details.

MeeZoid's Freeze Gun
Upon right clicking the diamond hoe, snowballs will be shot out of the hoe. When a player is hit by the snowball they will receive Slowness IV for 5 seconds. If you miss 3 out of 3 shots you will be put on a 10 second cooldown. If you land your shot you will be put on a 1 minute cooldown.

PatroxWarez's Egg
Upon throwing the egg and hitting a player with it within a 10 block radius, the player won't be able to place or break blocks for 15 seconds. If you miss your shot you will be put on a 10 second cooldown. If you hit your shot you will be put on a 2 minute cooldown.

Laserlightshot's Backpack
Upon right clicking the ender chest, you will be presented with an additional 9 inventory slots. Perfect for invis raiding, carrying extra potions, an extra set of armor, tools and more. No cooldown in between uses.

Br0's Invisibility
Upon right clicking the Ink Sac, your character and armor (if equipped) will become invisible. Once you are attacked the invisibility will disappear. Invisibility will last for a total of 3 minutes with a 2 minute cooldown in between uses. Perfect way to invis raid without having to be naked.

HateFoo's Second Chance
Upon clicking the feather, your ender pearl timer will be set to 0. There is a 2 minute cooldown between uses. Perfect for getting out of sticky situations.

Zigy's Swapper
Upon hitting a player once with the golden axe, one piece of the players' armor will be put in a random, vacant inventory slot of theirs. If they don't have a vacant slot open the player will receive Slowness 4 for 5 seconds instead. There is a 30 second cooldown in between uses.

Stepphen's Ninja Ability
Upon right clicking the nether star, you will be teleported to the last person that hit you within a 10 second time frame. If you don't make the 10 second window the ability will not work. 2 minute cooldown in between uses.


New Halloween Crate
Available for purchase starting this Friday, October 25th at midnight.


Our Halloween crate is only here for the next 2 weeks! The crate will consist of retired Partner Package items such as the Teleportation Balls, Grappling Hook, and Short Pearls followed by a ton of never seen, brand new items. The crate will be visible in Spawn starting this Friday and Saturday.


/kits on Royale and Reforged
Available for purchase now at
https://store.vipermc.net.

We needed to figure out a way we could implement /kits to Royale and Reforged without making them over powered for the players without /kits. This is what we came up with.

• No items above map kit in all kits
• No potions in all kits
• No effects (sugar, feathers, etc) in all kits
• No food in all kits other than the Starter kit
• Cannot use /kits for the first 30 minutes of SOTW
• 24 hours cooldown in between uses

Royale and Reforged are meant to be more difficult than Infernal and like I stated at the beginning of the post that's exactly how we want to keep it. We think /kits can be a convenient feature when regulated accordingly. We hope you all enjoy what we came up with.
