    The Top player of the month is here! Through thick and thin, sickness and health -- you got it, this player made sure to be online no matter what it took to accomplish it. The Top Player of the month is an individual who has been online longer than all other community members server wide! If I don't call that dedication, then I don't know what that is!

    [​IMG]

    Congratulations to, WTFishy, for outlasting and outshining those around you with an absolutely insane playtime of: 3 Weeks and nearly 7 Days! Your hard work has paid off for you this month, because you are now officially crowned the Top Player of December 2018! With this accomplishment you will be rewarded with an exclusive forum prefix and some top quality in game loot! Please remember to comment below in order to claim your forum tag too!​

    Another month means another group of community members that have been nominated for Player of the Week! These individuals are members that we have seen around Skybounds helping out and overall bringing positivity to the server. This month we were graced with two individuals who stood out to myself and staffing as being helpful, positive and creative! Congratulations to those who were chosen and we hope you enjoyed your gifts!

    Every week you can find the NPC within HUB updated to match the new chosen Player of the Week. To those who wish to be an option for future Players of the Week, all you have to do is be activite on the server and reflect a well behaved and helping mindset!

    Some of you may not know this, but our staff actually work pretty dang hard behind the scenes! They sacrifice quite a bit to do what they do in return to deal with a lot of chaos and criticism from the community. I want to take the time to appreciate a member of the staffing community that has stood above all, dealt with the scary players and excelled at their position here, Uprising_Cj! As a thank you for your dedication to the server, you will be provided with an exclusive 'Staff of the Month' forum prefix to show off to those around you, along with a few other rewards in game!

    Island Trophies are a mysterious, highly desired and powerful item. Trophies can be won, and purchased in order to boost your Islands score on the leader boards.

See somebody with an outrageously high Island Score and wish to beat it? Best option for you is to join the next up and coming events we have planned!

    THE FIRST ISLANDS

Best of luck to you in the next coming month as hundreds of other players fight to overcome your high score and dominate the Island leader boards! Please comment below to obtain your Exclusive forum prefix and some in game loot as a reward for excelling in the development of your Island!

    Congrats to all this month!

    "Those who participated in Events this month should be seeing a spike in their Island scores due to those exclusive Event Trophies we passed out! " - where is my trophy for last month top island? this month's?

    However - Since being Top Player of the Month is something we strive for (being a competition and all) the decision to add Showdowns times to the Global Playtime on 12/30 was a shady move by devs/staff. Why didn't you wait until the new month started?? Many of us were trying for that top spot this month and monitor the playtime all month long. My screenshots show some of us at the top then all of a sudden on 12/30 after a restart WTFishy is top player? This is absolutely BS and just adds to the many reasons why people should no longer play on Skybounds with all the rules changing at whim by staff/devs. I am willing to bet this post will be removed because Staff (Lauren) may feel this is being toxic - its not toxic its the truth and I am not the only one who feels this way.

    I agree. Also, I think there should be a set time these playtimes end. The last 2 community updates ended the playtime at 2 weeks. Yet this one waited til nearly 4 weeks? A bit unfair that showdown was added so late. How was everyone to know what times we were up against? A bit of a let down to go from top playtime thinking you may have this month in the bag. Then poof there is WTFishy 2 days ahead of both Goddessofdawn and I. GG WTFishy.

    I think this next top playtime should not include afk. Then we'd see who is actually the most active and not just afking for top time. Also a set week these community updates happen would be nice. Just my 2 cents.

    Why would we leave out showdown playtime? Not fair to them either if they didn't get to join in on the competition, next time get a higher playtime and maybe you will beat the players on showdown.

    If Showdowns was part of the Global Playtime the entire month if would not have been such an issue but when you add them in on Dec 30th its not fair to the rest of us. I wasn't the only one upset about this!

    You bring drama everywhere you walk don't you?
    There was nothing sneaky about us adding players whom were EXCLUDED from a leaderboard out of error, regardless of the time in which we did it. This was a bug that was not intended, and those who were active on the servers yet not displayed for /top were added in order for it to be FAIR. Top Player is about those who are ACTIVE on the server, I am very sorry that you weren't able to sync your AFK time with the global top.

    I'm sorry you feel so privileged that only you should have been on top and not others who have worked JUST as hard to be there too. Why is it unfair to you, but not unfair to the other players excluded? With how you've been recently, you don't really deserve much of anything from me -- yet I still looked past your problem causing and illogical complaints and gave you your Island Top. Also, what I give out can change at any time, from month to month. You really need to get off your high horse.

    You should really start looking to others with more understanding / compassion and less envy / hostility. :)

    Your island will now be excluded from the Island Top in January.
