    This week in Skybounds, we’re bringing you a ranked combat update!

    [​IMG]

    When first entering the Warzone this week, you’ll be tasked with completing 15 fights (win or lose).

    Based on your win ratio from your first 15 fights, you will be assigned your "combat level". Players will only be able to engage in combat if they are within 100 combat levels of each other.

    [​IMG]

    If players are within combat level range of each other, their name-plates will appear green in the warzone and their levels will be displayed below them (Showing levels can be disabled if you like!). If players are outside of combat rank range of each other, their name-plates will appear as red and will display [High Level] or [Low Level] respectively. (If you don't want to see other player's levels, you can always turn off their visibility in the toggles menu.)

    [​IMG]

    For every bout you take part in you’ll either gain or lose levels accordingly, with the amounts scaling dependent on the level difference of the two participants. Winning fights will raise your combat level and losing fights will result in a drop in combat level.

    [​IMG]

    Alongside our combat updates, we also have some modifications to kill-tracking. The player rewarded a kill is now based off of overall damage dealt, rather than last hit.

    For those of you unlucky enough to be slain, you’ll now be shown a death recap in your chat & sidebar (Sidebars displaying is now a toggleable option!). This recap includes who was rewarded for downing you, the levels you lost as a result as well as an option to view a death snapshot. The winner of the battle will be told how many levels they have gained from you at the end of combat.

    Players with the highest combat rankings will receive more benefits in the future within the Warzone, in the form of new perks, exclusive islands and more! So get battling and improve your rank!

    We hope this update will come as a welcome change for those players being targeted constantly, as well as a new challenge for those seeking to make their claim in the warzone.
    _ __ ___ _____ ___ __ _

    Alongside this combat update we’ve given Mining World new loot worth uncovering, runes! Available in both PvP (More common) and PvE (Less common). Now among your meteor chases and battles against enemy hoards, you’ll have a chance at finding the following:

    Ancient Rune, Legendary Relic, Immortal Stone,
    Buried Treasure & Pot of Gold
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    _ __ ___ _____ ___ __ _

    [​IMG]

    Fishing has once again received some changes, and we hope they’ll be to your liking. Fishing times have been buffed overall, and there is also the addition of the new fishing "action bar". Now when fishing an action bar will appear, once the bar has filled green you’ll see the particles indicating you’ve gotten a bite. Reel in your haul and enjoy the food/loot you’re able to hook!
    [​IMG] [​IMG]
    The Chumming ability has received a longer cool-down (15 minutes), but its duration has also been increased to a full minute. You’ll be able to cycle through all your fishing abilities now via “Shift + Punch”, which will be useful for the new ability under the Treasure Hunter upgrade tree “Big Haul”. This ability will enable you to catch 5-10 “loot” simultaneously on your next reel, the cool-down for this ability is 5 minutes.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    the combat thing is dumb
    if you have a lot of kills and need to do a killing challenge you wont be able to do it, also if you need to kill players but they are too low on the ranking you wont be able to kill them which makes the challenge harder to do. Another thing if you say put on other armor and go into the warzone to get the kills what if you have a big bounty on you and don't want to die then you wont be able to complete the challenge. I bet it is because all of the players without gear complain too much about the people with good gear killing them Wakeup call its Minecraft your supposed to kill other people

    I personally dont agree with this approach to protecting new players :/ instead why not just have a daily redeemable kit for players under player level 20 or so which gives three 20 minute immunity orbs that are soul bound, only redeemable by the player that redeems them, and expire if not used within a day? This gives new players a combined total of an hour of protected mining in the war zone every day and allows them to choose to fight if they want to instead of being restricted by the combat system.
