Battles Beta
Status: OPEN

We're now opening up the Shadowblockz Battles server to the community to help test and develop it! Why Beta? We're calling it a beta because this server isn't 100% finished, we're still adding content to it but instead of waiting till everything's finished we're going to release it as a beta so everyone can still play it.

What is Battles?
The battles server is a PvP focused server where players can battle each other in various arenas with various kits. You can play either UnRanked Battles, or Ranked Battles. Ranked battles are 1v1 battles which affect the global leaderboards and are limited to the amount of games you can play per day. UnRanked battles do not affect the global leaderboard, but includes party gametypes including Party vs Party and Party FFA and are not limited in terms of how many games you can play per day.

What about combat mechanics?
The battles server is built upon Minecraft 1.8, so it will be using the 1.8 combat mechanics. It's also compatible with Minecraft 1.8, 1.9 and 1.10. Shields have been removed from the battles server to improve combat.

Everyone is aware that there will be bugs with the battles server, hence why it's in beta. However, we'll be rolling out patches as quickly as possible to fix any bugs that may arise. Please report any bugs you're encountering in the comments section below.

We will be publishing new features for the battles server over the upcoming weeks, including more features for premium players (VIP/VIP+/MVP).

Network Changes
Now that Battles Beta is open, we'll be releasing network alterations across all servers. This includes a more efficient /profile system and achievements for ALL servers. Additionally, there will be the return of the censorship system which will block any profanity on the server.
