Since the launch of Savage Games, we've been committed to providing weekly updates to our servers. Now, we're doing it with the launch of a brand new server type under our umbrella. Introducing... MONEY WARS Money Wars is based off well-known games such as Bed Wars and Egg Wars, but with the twist of added TNT and explosions! So what's included in this new update? NEW GAME LOBBY: THE MONEY WARS LOBBY This new lobby is accessible from the current Skybounds hub. Click the new Money Wars icon in your hotbar to be teleported here. The Money Wars lobby includes a sign wall for joining games, a room of the current kits, and a layout for each of our Kit Crates. (Explained below!) Oh, and there's parkour too. THE OBJECTIVE: TRIGGER THE ACTIVATORS The primary goal in Money Wars is to travel to other players' islands and trigger their activators. When all the activators on an island have been triggered, their ability to respawn is removed and their island erupts with TNT everywhere. Your sidebar acts as a heads-up-display to let you know how many Activators you have remaining vs how many have been hit. It'll also make it very clear when you no longer respawn. You can view the remaining activators for other players in the player list when you press TAB. If you're unfortunate enough to have all your activators triggered... I have some bad news for you.... Gathering Resources Scattered around our maps are resource generators. These generators produce the listed resource every few seconds. The higher the level, the faster they generate. Some generators may start disabled, which could require you to venture to the map center to get the resources required to enable it. The Shopkeeper Trade your found resources with The Shopkeeper for food, building blocks, tools, armor, and weapons. There are many powerful items that can be achieved for those that save up their resources. Your Island is valuable, PROTECT IT! If your activators are triggered and your island explodes, not only will you lose the ability to respawn, but you'll also lose your shopkeeper. This will require you to venture to other player islands to do your shopping. Dangerous! THE KITS: 15 NEW KITS FOR MONEY WARS EXCLUSIVELY Money Wars is launching with 15 kits to start off. We plan on adding many more with each update as we go. What are the kits? ARCHER includes a bow and 10 arrows TELEPORTER includes an ender pearl SHIELD includes 10 obsidian BUILDER includes a stack of endstone and 5 obsidian GRANNY includes a Knockback 2 stick and an ocelot egg KANGAROO includes a firework rocket that gives you a second leap PORTAL includes 2 portal runes, when placed allow you to teleport between the two TNT includes 8 TNT TROLL includes various redstone items RUNNER includes 2 speed II potions TURTLE receives less damage while sneaking (but also has their own attack damage reduced!) REAPER gains +4 hearts with every player kill (up to max HP) VIPER has a chance to poison players with every strike MINER has an Efficiency 10 Unbreaking 10 gold pickaxe COW includes full leather armor Kits that come with items are awarded both at the start of the game, and after every respawn! How do I unlock kits? Kits can be unlocked for FREE by opening Kit Crates (explained further below!) or purchased directly from our shop: Savage Games | Welcome It gets better then that! Every FRIDAY, we pick 3 kits at random and make them completely free for everyone for the next week! All kits have a chance at being selected to be free for the week. Once you unlock a kit (from a crate or purchase), you can use it any time... whether or not it's in the free cycle. KIT CRATES: UNLOCK NEW KITS Kit Crates can be earned as a chance from winning Money Wars games, or purchased with Money Wars Tokens! Every crate comes with 1 kit that gets unlocked FOREVER upon it coming from a crate. Should you ever receive a kit you already own, you'll receive Tokens equal to the value of the kit instead. Kit Crates can be opened in the Money Wars Lobby by clicking the physical chests or using your /kit menu. Premium Members have access to a free rank crate every week! The value of the crate is dependent on your rank. Thanks for your support! THE CROSSOVER: MONEY WARS TOKENS Money Wars Tokens can be spent on Kit Crates for Money Wars... but also serve another purpose. :) Coming with next update will be a new Vendor in all markets on Skybounds who takes these Tokens in exchange for rare and unique items. We're really excited to add him to our markets! This first interation of Money Wars only offers solo mode! Team games are coming NEXT WEEK with the new vendor in Skybounds! ...as well as some other cool content. ;) Other Noteable Changes Too many to list this week! We've made lots of backend changes to make this update possible. Skybounds-specific content resumes next week!
