HEY GAMERS!
ITS BEEN A WHILE!


I would first like to start with a giant thank you to all you amazing players that have stuck with us. We recognize the current state of ArcadeWars is not good, and we want to change that. In order to do so we have the old management team back, and a new developer. We really want to change the server dramatically for you guys to enjoy again. So please, continue to stick with us!

Bug fixes
Due to the massive amount of bugs, we will be creating a long document of bugs that need attention. Since we don’t want to miss any bugs, please comment bugs here with the correct format!

New content coming
Once we have the bugs fixed we will begin adding new content as well as polling the players to see what you guys want. After looking at the current state of ArcadeWars and talking to the players, I’ve noticed a lot of people wanting the old ArcadeWars. But instead of jumping into conclusions we will be polling you guys for the best game-play experience. Just like the bugs section we also have created a content thread here for you guys to discuss what you guys want!

Rule changes
Racism, Discrimination, and Harassment: [] 30 Minute Mute [] 1 Hour Mute [] 24 Hour Mute
- Harassing another person or making inappropriate (vulgar) remarks. This is generally left up to the discretion of the staff member online at the time.

Encouraging Rule Breaking: [] Warning [] 15 Minute Mute[] 30 Minute Mute [] 1 Hour...

Hello, ArcadeWars!
My name, as I'm sure most of you know by now, is Reece. I'm the new manager that was brought onto the network by both @Evergreen and @Serayne92. Overall, the transition was smooth, and I went right to work learning about the staff team, the network as a whole, and what this network needs. As such, I've been trying to talk with a multitude of players, and staff alike to get their opinions, and concerns with the network as a whole and its future.

However, this is about who I am, and what I will be doing; so I'll be focusing on the more important parts for right now. I'm going to be mainly focusing on Factions, but that doesn't mean that I can't be on Skyblock, nor does it mean that Ever cannot assist in Factions. For all intensive purposes, we're going to be managing the entire network together. However, my job is to open a direct line of communication with the players who know far more about factions than Management could; and have them assist us in various ways. For more about myself, I enjoy being given the opportunity to nurture a network, and assisting it grow into something greater than it was when I arrived. I'd consider myself adept in my abilities of community, and staff management.

Don't get me wrong, I'm no beginner to server management, and I'm no beginner to factions. I've managed various other networks, some of them much smaller than this, but some of them much larger. I've never left a network in a worse state than I've started with it. However, some users have taken to "testing" my knowledge on factions. I was never a "hardcore" factions player, but I know enough from what people have taught me to manage a factions network, and listen to the community to know what direction the server needs to go in. I'm an extremely forward person, so I have no problem saying that I am not as adept in factions as I...

Our first giveaway just went up! -- retweet THIS POST & follow @ArcadewarsMC to enter!

Hello gamers, and welcome to the announcement thread for this Sonic reset!

I will be going over everything that's being added/changed in this thread.
But before I get into that, let it be known that the release date for the reset is..

Saturday, October 13th at 2 PM EST (11 AM PST, 7 PM GMT)

Kirby Merge

We have decided to merge the Kirby realm into the Sonic realm for this Sonic reset.
The main reasons behind this decision are the following:

  • Not enough players interested in the Kirby realm.
  • Lack of players results in us not generating enough revenue on the realm to justify the costs to maintain it, as well as do Island Top payouts on it.
  • Splitting the Skyblock community on the network across two realms seems counter productive.
If you had a rank, or any other permission based perks on Kirby, they will all be transferred to Sonic.


Island Top Information


We have decided to change up how we do Island Top prizes this map.
Instead of waiting until the very end of the map to pay out prizes in bulk, we will be paying out sections of the total prize weekly to the top Islands. Similar to how we do "weekly payouts" on factions.

The following prizes will be paid out weekly throughout the 8 week map:

  • 1st.) $50 PayPal + $50 Store Giftcard
  • 2nd.) $15 PayPal + $50 Store Giftcard
  • 3rd.) $50 Store Giftcard
  • 4th.) $25 Store Giftcard
  • 5th.) $10 Store Giftcard
So that means after the 8 week map is over, the total amounts paid out will be...

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!!
