Murdery Mystery Game Update

It's time for a Murdery Mystery game update!

New maps

  • Witch School
  • Eso Hotel

AFK Prevention

To prevent players farming XP by being AFK, you will now be removed from the game if you don't participate.

Innocent Detector

To help Murderers find hiding Innocents, the Innocent Detector will help them find remaining Innocents in the last minute of the game.

Enjoy!

Custom Servers: role & team selection, invite all friends

We're constantly releasing improvements and fixes for Custom Servers. Here's 2 much-requested features, releasing today.

Role and Team Selection

Gain full control over your lobby and manually set the role (or team) for each player! 

Invite All Friends

Got a lot of friends you want to invite? Simply invite every online friend with one button.

A toggle to turn off incoming invites is coming soon.


These features are now live on Treasure Wars and Murder Mystery custom servers, and soon on all games.

In-Game (Monthly) Leaderboards - Update 2

More leaderboard goodness!

  • You can now view detailed (monthly & all-time) statistics for a player. Pick a game, select Friend or Search Username, and their statistics will be shown. If the player has 10 or more victories in the current month, their leaderboard placing will be shown.
  • Loading times have been improved for those with many friends. However, we may show less placings on your Friend Leaderboard in certain scenarios. You can always load a friends placing (if they have above 10 victories) by viewing their statistics directly using Select Friend (see above).
  • "Go Back" buttons have been added to most menus so you can easily browse the leaderboards without having to re-run the command.
  • Resolved most issues causing certain leaderboards placings to load in as 'unset' with a default avatar.
  • Resolved timestamps showing up in the 'raw' format - they are now formatted relatively, for example, "Last Played: 2 hours ago".

You can open the in-game leaderboards with the following command:

/leaderboard

More updates, including visual improvements to this system, coming soonTM.

Some of the above changes are thanks to the feedback left on Update 1! If you have any suggestions, leave them as a comment on this post. Here's some answers to common questions:

  • Q: Will there be an item/NPC so I can open the leaderboards quicker?
    A: Yes, in the future.
  • Q: Will previous monthly leaderboards become available?
    A: We are looking into realistic ways to make this possible. We plan to, at the very least, make the top 1000 of each previous month available in a future update.
  • Q: What do you call a wasp?
    A: A wanna-bee!



In-Game (Monthly) Leaderboards - Update 1

Additional functionality is now available with the in-game (monthly) leaderboards:

  • You can now view the all-time leaderboards
  • You can now view a subset of the monthly leaderboards, showing you and your friends. Both their standing in 'your' leaderboard, as well as their actual monthly standing, will be shown.
  • You can now click through on a leaderboard entry to view all their stats, such as kills, deaths and more.

You can access these leaderboards with

/leaderboard

(why does a pizza have a corn as their avatar? Please tells us!)

In-Game Monthly Leaderboards

This is a tech-demo and may be unavailable at times.

You can now view the monthly leaderboards in-game! Simply load into the Hive and run the following command:

/leaderboard

You can retrieve your own standings, as well as viewing the current top 100 for supported games. Keep in mind that leaderboards reset monthly!

We're aware that, at times, player names load in as 'unset'. This is an issue we will fix before this feature will become more prominently available. For now, simply request the same leaderboard again, and it will load fine.

Just Build: more voting options & in-game reporting

This update is currently only available on our EUROPE and North America regions.

We've added two much requested features to Just Build!

NEW VOTE OPTIONS: Two new vote options are now available: "Okay" and "Great"

IN-GAME REPORTING: Whether inappropriate or off-topic, you can now report builds that don't follow the rules or theme.

We will closely monitor the reporting feature to make sure it achieves it goals without any side effects.

NEW Game: Just Build

Show off your building skills in our brand new minigame: Just Build!

Available in both solos and duos variants, Just Build is a Build-Battle style minigame. When the game starts, a theme will be picked. You have 5 minutes to build your best interpretation of this theme, after which the voting phase starts. Pick from 'Meh', 'Good' or 'Love' for each competing build. The team that receives the best ratings wins!

Level up to unlock brand new cosmetics, both in-game and global ones, including a free costume for reaching maximum level 20. Want to get there a bit faster, as well as receiving many other perks? Consider getting Hive+, our premium rank.
