SkyWars Changelog 19/05

We've just started rolling out a new version of SkyWars, focusing on fixing some minor gameplay issues and bugs. You'll see this version appear on games over the next few hours.

Gameplay

  • Ender Pearls will no longer cause death, but instead, leave you with half a heart of health
  • Added play area enforcement, with minimum play height activating 3 minutes into livegame
  • Decreased rate of "unlucky TNT" when mining lucky (gold) ores

Bugs

  • Fixed "Ores Mined" lobby stat hologram
  • Fixed an issue when breaking blocks outside of your island border would result in item drops even though the block remained
  • Fixed an issue where right-click (interacting) to equip armor could cause enchantments to be lost
  • Fixed "0 hearts left" when being killed by a player with a half a heart
  • Fixed an issue where ghost boom boxes could be seen in the void
  • Fixed fire turning invisible when destroying a block beneath it

There are some other issues we're currently researching and hope to have updates soon! As always thank you to anyone who reported bugs on our forums.

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.

Platform: Block Placement Fix

Alongside todays Quest Master preview, we're happy to announce that we've pushed fixes to block placement on The Hive.

This means placing blocks, particularly when bridging in Treasure Wars, should be much more predictable.

If you are still experiencing issues, please report them on our forums.

Version Support Update

We've released a patch for the 1.12 water rendering on our EU region. This patch will be released on the other regions at a later time.

Once this patch is released worldwide, we will be disabling 1.10 support.

We have no updates to share about our support for beta 1.13 at this time.
