HAPPY NEW YEAR! I'm saying that now so I don't feel bad about not saying it tomorrow. Nobody can be mad at me now! Let's get into the new stuff. :D SMALL DISCLAIMER: This update is smaller than what we usually do since the Savage Games team has been away, spending the holidays with family and friends! Our usual large content patches will resume next Friday, so for now, you'll need to settle for what we have below. ;) NEW CUSTOM ENCHANTMENT: CONFETTI A celebratory enchantment for the new year! Confetti gives an extra bonus to players you kill, by allowing them to drop various colors of confetti! What better way to celebrate the end of 2016? Just right click a piece of confetti to reveal a random item! Confetti can contain spells, golden apples, various crates, and resource blocks! The higher the enchant level, the more Confetti you have a chance to receive with every kill. Go celebrate! NEW WEAPONS: BLASTERS Blasters are a brand new weapon type you'll start seeing throughout the warzone. Each type of blaster fires a fast travelling projectile that can go through players, and deal AOE effects. Each blaster has it's own ammunition requirement and reload times, so be prepared! With this update we're introducing 3 types of blasters: COMBUSTER: Fires a volatile beam that explodes on impact, dealing damage and minor knockback to enemies in the blast. The Combuster is most powerful against low armored players at high distance, allowing you to keep hem at bay. BLAST DRILL: Fires a high energy beam that pelts through enemy armor. The Blast Drill doesn't do much damage, but it packs a HUGE punch against opponent defenses. With only a half a second reload time, you don't want to stick around too long if your enemy brings out one of these. GRAVITY GUN: You can't flee this fight! The Gravity Gun allows you to pull or push enemies. This blaster works best on opponents who are moving, and not those standing still, as it uses their current movement against them! Blasters are only usable in PVP areas, and only on players who are in the warzone with you. (No pulling players out of safezones, sorry!) NEW IMMORTAL KIT: PARTY ANIMAL These kit holders sure do know how to party. The Party Animal comes with high powered armor, the new blaster, and a weapon with the Confetti enchantment. They're the most prepared for 2017 by far. Grab the new immortal shard from our shop: Savage Games | Welcome The new gear is also now added to warzone chests and ancient runes, so get hunting if you don't unlock the new kit! OH YEAH! The Executioner, Necromancer, and Lumberjack Fairy immortal kits disappear, (as well as our STILL GOING Holiday sale!) on January 2nd! Make sure to grab these up and enjoy some awesome deals before then! Savage Games | Welcome OTHER NOTEABLE CHANGES: So helpful! The /help menu has been updated with some of our newer commands. Condense it all! Legend+ players now have access to /condense, which instantly compacts all emeralds, diamonds, gold, and iron into their block forms, saving you a trip to the crafting table! Noob Boost The Noob Kit on ICE now includes 16 dirt in it. Bucket Restrictions Fixed a bug that allowed players to pick up liquids in some locations in the warzone. Buckets are now only usable on islands. New Campaign Challenges! 10 new campaign challenges have been added to help you reach level 30! Get grinding! Shuffle Ability Debuff! Hotbar items now have a chance at being swapped on a per-slot basis. Bugfixes and Optimizations! Maybe these will stay in 2016, too. Once again... sorry for the little amount of new content this week! We celebrate the holidays, too. :) The usual oversized, epic, and amazing updates return next week!
