Hello!

I'll start my first forums announcement off by thanking everyone for the warm welcome. I'm excited to get to know all of you in the coming months. If anyone has questions about me, why I'm here, what I'll be doing, or really anything, feel free to shoot me a message here or on Discord (Evergreen#7184). I generally reply within 24 hours.

-
Second up for today's announcement: congratulations to all of the new staff, and all staff who were recently promoted! You can see our current staff list here.

We are looking for new staff members, and the requirements and guide have been updated. Remember activity in-game is a must, and you're also expected to be mature, kind, and professional. You need to be in good standing with the community to become staff.

I am currently going through the standing staff applications with help from the admins (thank you!) so decisions on those are being made and will continue coming. We'll be welcoming some more new staff very soon!

-
All purchase help requests will be responded to within the next few days. If you've made a purchase and it hasn't arrived within, at most, 3 days, message me.

-
Now, for the rules! All updated rules go into affect today (6.14.18) at 5:00 PM EST. The main guidelines are the same, however some punishment times have been changed and rules have a new format.
RULES

Official Discord rules have also been posted, but there's nothing different from the current Discord rules - only a rules page on forums.

Cheers to a bright future here !
Kindest Regards,
- Evergreen​
Mario + Zelda are being merged and Mario is resetting come June 22nd 2pm EDT.

We will be doing a $2500 FTOP Paypal payout for the top 3 factions.
It will be a 6 week season with the 1st week being building and the following 5 weeks being TNT enabled.
1. $1250 - $250 a week.
2. $750 - $150 a week.
3. $500 - $100 a week.
Payments will be sent out weekly and the Faction leader will be able to set their Paypal email by using the command /f setpaypal

We will be releasing custom enchants and the system will be as follows:

There are three tiers of enchantments available, Uncommon, Rare and Mythic. You can obtain an enchantment by successfully applying an enchantment book containing the enchantment to an item by dragging and dropping it on to the item in your inventory.
Every enchantment book has two chances, a success rate and a destroy rate. The success rate is the chance that the book will apply to the item successfully and the destroy rate is the chance that the item will be destroyed if the enchantment fails to apply. The enchantment book will always be destroyed when attempting to enchant regardless of if the success or destroy rate is met.
You can purchase enchantment books via the Enchanter NPC at spawn or by using the /enchanter command. This will allow you to buy generic enchantment tier books for XP that you can uncover to reveal a random enchantment in that tier. Each tier book costs a different amount of XP.
If you want to apply a rare enchantment book to an item that has a high destroy rate but don’t want to risk your item being destroyed, you can protect your item with a White Scroll. The protection will remain until you attempt to apply an enchantment and hit the destroy rate, in which case the item will not be destroyed however the protected status will be removed. White Scrolls are available in crates and for a small fee on the server store....
HEY GUYS!
WE HAVE THE WINNERS!!


After the long competitive season of Zelda its finally come time to announce winners. Thank you all for your support! If your Faction didn't make the cut then I would try a bit harder next time we have rewards like these.

JADE KOTH??!!?!?
Yes. As you may have already seen from our Twitter we have brought a fresh new build to ArcadeWars yet again. JADE KOTH! This koth is similar to our older koth setups. It's a PVP oriented KOTH (King Of The Hill) which players have to capture in order to win the grand prize. But it's not as easy as it sounds. There will only be one winner, and one winner ONLY! However its not just that, we added a little twist on this one.
NOTE: Teaming is not allowed and will result in disqualification!

HOW'S IT DIFFERENT THEN A REGULAR KOTH??
We now will have 50+ loot chests randomly spawned around the koth. These chests will offer different kinds of loot. It could be something like Custom Potions to something insanely OP like a Sharpness 8 Shovel!!! Lets take a look at the random chests that will be scattered around the koth!

Common Chests (White):
5 chests contain > Diamond Helmet with Protection 4, Unbreaking 4
5 chests contain > Diamond Chestplate with Protection 4,...
