    The first week of March is finally here, and that means it is officially time for us to release one of our big ongoing projects! This new game mode that we are introducing comes fully packed with leader boards to keep track of your PVP statistics, and a fun new alternative to PVPing cross world. All players from around the globe, will be able to access the new Combat World and battle against the nine other islands in the Skybounds Universe. We are excited to introduce this new feature and we are sure your competitive side will surely shine. Along with the big update, we are introducing to you all the Monlthy Crate of March and a Double Drops Token for the new combat world! This Months crate has a brand new player trail, along with some exclusive prefixes. Mob arena has since seen more tweaks and changes this week, bug fixes have been made and a new update day has been decided upon! Read more to learn about the specifics of this weeks update.

    This is something that we have been contemplating and finally decided on, instead of having updates every Friday we will be rolling updates out during the middle of the week. This will allow us to add small updates such as gameplay tweaks more often, especially with the new combat world described below, and give us the ability to push bug fixes more often rather than waiting for Friday.

    For those of you who may not know what our Monthly Crates are all about, I'll be happy to explain! Our Monthly crates are loot crates that can be purchased once a month by users in the community. These crates are limited to their specific month of release, and the exclusive loot inside can only be obtained that month! Every month is guaranteed to have something new and exclusive for you to find! This month we are offering you a brand new player attack trail called FORTUNE. Upon hitting your opponent in battle, this trail will display a variety of ingots, diamonds, emeralds dropping as if you were truly stealing ones resources!

    [​IMG]
    [Here]

    Each Monthly crate contains up to 13 items upon opening. How many items you obtain, is determined by your in game rank. So for those who have supported our community through purchasing a donation rank, can receive up to three extra gifts per Monthly Crate opening. So want more from your crate -- Check out our lifetime ranks in our donation store today!

    Last week we saw a Mob Arena revamp, this week we've tweaked the revamp a little bit. After hearing the suggestions of speeding up the early waves and that you were not feeling rewarded we have bumped both of those, now you will more properly get rewarded for your time in the mob arena and the mobs will not take as long to spawn early on.



    [​IMG]

    The large update for last month/beginning of this month is the Combat World! Many of you have been guessing what this update is based on the teasers that we have given over the past couple of weeks, I will admit that a lot of you were very close to guessing what it is… But oh, its so much more than just Island Wars! The initial thought of The Combat World was to bring together every island and have them wage war in a PvP onslaught JUST like how I remember the SkyBounds warzone was when SkyBounds first launched. But as time went on I discovered the possibility of The Combat World and how much better it could become… Not only will you be fighting and gathering resources for your SkyBounds Island but you will also be doing it for yourself against your SkyBounds Island!


    [​IMG]

    The combat in the Combat World is a different breed of combat than what we have on the normal SkyBounds islands, instead of rolling around in custom enchanted god sets with op set bonuses everyone will start with leather and slowly get better gear with the best gear being “enhanced” diamond armor. HOWEVER we have also created a custom “Armor Points” system, where each piece of a type of armor has an amount of “Armor Points”. This allowed us to make a purpose for upgrading your helmet between golden, iron and chain. You will see the armor points that someone has above their head in game. The simplest explanation for the armor points is that having 50 armor points means 50% damage reduced. BUT instead of making it a boring hey you upgraded to a chain helmet now you always have the chain helmet on, we are allowing you to completely organize your inventory how YOU want to. Which means you can pull sneak attacks and hide your armor before attacking someone, but that may make you more vulnerable to attack if something extra large were to appear in the world randomly! Now if you are to die you will be reset back to the leather armor and wooden tools, BUT if you have upgraded to a certain type of armor already then you can just purchase that type of armor straight away, i.e. you do not have to purchase enhanced leather and then chain just to get to enhanced chain.​

    Apart from PvP in the Combat World there is also the gathering of resources at launch, more to come throughout the upcoming days. The primary source of gathering materials is through mining, however the mining has changed a little bit. Now the mining is based on a vein system, a vein is simply a cluster of 1 ore, each vein requires a certain tool or higher to mine and will give you a specific item upon each mine. An ore vein also has a durability, or more simply put you can only mine them a certain amount of times before the vein is depleted. However due to the limitations of Minecraft we had to use the same block for multiple ores. So if you happen to cross a coal ore that you cant mine with your Wooden Pickaxe then it probable contains Magnetite which requires an Iron Pickaxe to mine! As for the mobs at launch there will be 2 groups through Zone 1, more will come as time goes on, this is to test some of the basic mechanics that they will have.

    TIP: Right click on a block to see if you can mine it with your current pickaxe that you are holding, if you can mine it then it will say this vein contains “something”.


    [​IMG]


    The Combat World isn’t just about mining and PvPing though, its about becoming the top of the leaderboards, whether that be the daily, weekly or monthly. You will be fighting for yourself and your Favorite SkyBounds island for PvP Kills, Killstreaks, and EXFIL. EXFIL is the amount of money you make from extracting resources from the Zones. But this is only the beginnings of the leaderboards, there is much more to come!​


    [​IMG]


    This update is a different style than any we have done before! Instead of dropping this large update that gets played through in a couple of hours by all the hardcore players and then we must push an update to “nerf” all the hardcore players, we are going to pushing this update out slowly. Starting with the initial combat world you will be able to fight and gather resources along with keeping track of your stats and climbing the leader boards, however not all resources/mobs/gear/items/activities will be available at launch. Instead we will be pushing out updates every day/every other day to bring new stuff to the Combat World, which is why we have switched over to the new Update Schedule. Things coming throughout the weekend and next week include; 4 New Areas, New Mobs, Items to be Purchased for your PREFERRED SkyBounds world, Upgraded Gear, Special Items and Clue Scrolls. Lets just say we have A LOT planned for this and you should always be hyped for the next day in the Combat World!​

    Which world will sit ontop of the leaderboards! :D
    And who will be the first to mine Lava Rock!

    Coming this weekend after the initial launch of the Combat World will be the ability to purchase double drops from mining and mobs.

    Already I see lots of problems with this,people can attack anyone,not good because of all the people Gatekeeping sector 1 it makes it hard to participate. No moderators are watching the Combat world chat and therefore there is lots of cussing and nasty language going on. Think our combat levels need to apply to the combat world too to help clean this up and make it more fun for all.
