First of all, I want to sincerely apologize for missing last update. I was on vacation. We went to the Grand Canyon, Las Vegas, and Phoenix Arizona.

On to the updates.

Between when I left, and the last update Tokens was released. It feels like it was a while ago, but it wasn’t :) You can claim tokens weekly, and daily in the Hub. Then, tokens can be used to buy keys for the numerous servers. This has been a long-awaited thing and is working wonderfully now that it is here.

With the introduction of the new keys and crates however, this means old “legacy” crates were removed. All those old voting keys are now useless :(

In the time that has passed, we had four new people added to the staff team, and two new promotions. @AhVeryNice and @GummieBear047 were both promoted to admin. The former is the head of the Build Team, while the latter is the head of bans, who replaces @Stevenbf3 as he decided to resign. @NaoRiko, @instinct , @AstroPizza, and @xSilencers. Nao, Instinct and xSilencers are helpers, while Pizza is now admin. His admin position is event manager, meaning he is the one now doing events.

On the topic of events, a KitPvP event happened, and currently happening is a building event called King’s Castles! You can find a link to the page about it here: YOU CAN STILL ENTER!

That is all I have to report. See you all again in two weeks!

(PS: I was gone for a long time. If I missed anything, tell me down below. :))

*You find a scroll. It reads as follows*


This scroll is an official message from the King of The Land of Shadowblockz!

He is calling out to all architects, builders, and dreamers to construct a new castle design for him! He is asking that you do it on a plot gives FREE to each citizen in the build of creativity!

To acquire a plot, you can either do /plot claim to get the plot you are currently standing on, or you can do /plot auto to claim a random plot. Do /plot help claiming for more information

You must sign up on the royal sheet of information for it to be judged. A magical passage to it can be found here (or here:

He expects all building to begin on Saturday the 25th. The King expects the best work from all, and as so he gives FIVE DAYS to complete all buildings. Because the King expects members from all the lands to attend, he leaves a list of zones of time, it is as follows;

CST ~ Saturday the 25th, 2pm ~Wednesday the 29th, 2pm.

EST ~ Saturday the 25th 3pm ~ Wednesday the 29th, 3pm.

GMT ~ Saturday the 25th, 7pm ~ Wednesday the 29th, 7pm.

If your time is not listed, the King offers a wonderful magic source to find your specific time, which can be found here (or here:

The King only lists three rules!

  • Building must be made out of NO 1.9+ blocks. (King ain’t like these)
  • Building must follow the rules of the land!
  • Building must be of, or related to a castle.
The King has put together a judging party, and has instructed them to look for these things;

  • Interior decoration
  • Exterior decoration
  • Landscaping

The King is willing to issue these prizes to the top three castles his judging party likes the most!

1st: 3000 Tokens (Split evenly by amount of people in group)

2nd: 2000 Tokens (Split evenly by amount of people in group)

3rd 1000 Tokens (Split evenly by amount of people in group)

Other then this, there is nothing else to be said! The King wishes the best of luck to all, and cannot wait to see whom the winner shall be!

  • The King’s royal assistant, speaking in for the King of Shadowblockz.

(PS: The entire plot can be used. There is no height limit, but you can only use the one plot. Ask any other questions below, and they will be answered.)

After 2 hours of action-packed fun, the day must draw to a close.

Thank you to all that participated today.
The tournament ran very smoothly and I thank you all for allowing that to happen. Without your brilliant cooperation, none of this would have been possible.
No matter If that be from playing to watching - you all helped make today amazing!
Of course a huge congratulations to our winner, Punishermatty!
Very Honourable mentions go to both Sgt (2nd) and CommunistSnake (3rd)

You're all absolute legends.
I can't properly put into words how happy I am - finally, I feel like a proper part of this community.
Arguably the most fun I've ever had on the server, (and this is coming from the guy who didn't even play!)
Your joy fills me with joy. I hope you all also had a great day; at the end of it all, that's exactly what it's about... you! It doesn't matter if we never had money problems again (although that would be nice.) When you simply break it down to why this server is really here it's so we can all enjoy ourselves - as one big happy community!
This has been a learning experience for me, one that will hopefully benefit all of us.
Here to many more events to come!

If you want to leave any feedback regarding the tournament, please do so here:

You guys are awesome!

Tokens, have been on Shadowblockz for a long time. However, they have never been utilised to their full potential. Crates were added to Shadowblockz a while back, however overtime their contents have become less valuable and the whole system was rather inefficient. Daily Rewards has been rumoured ever since we introduced our new Hub. Today, all becomes clear.

Today we introduce three new features to the Shadowblockz network. Updates that will intern affect the entire network as a whole. Crates, Daily Rewards and the new Tokens!

Instead of having crates on each server and instead of having to earn keys on each server, keys are now universal. You can now either buy crates keys in the server store or buy them with the tokens you earn. You can then choose which server you want to redeem the keys on.

There are four tiers of crates: Common, Rare, Epic, Legendary.
Each tier holds rewards that match the tier. The common crate will hold rewards that are common, and are rated common in value. Whereas the Legendary crate will hold Legendary items that are much more valuable and rare.

You can view how many crates you have, and you can redeem the crates you have on a specific server, by executing the /crates command. You can also access the token shop via this menu.

Once you have redeemed a crate on one of the servers you'll be given a physical key (just like before) which you'll be able to use to open up one of the crates at /warp crates.

Please note:

Rewards inside of crates are not set in stone. They will be tweaked and balanced all the time, however we will notify you of these updates and tweaks on the forums so you can keep up to date with what you can win from crates. We will not let server economies become ruined by unbalanced crates.

Skyblock and Factions players please note:
You will still be able to use the old (legacy) crate keys for up to 2 WEEKS! You will be able to find the old crates at /warp LegacyCrates. Please try to claim your rewards from these crates as soon as you can before they're removed permanently.

Daily Rewards
The long awaited Daily Rewards have been added to Shadowblockz, and they will be supporting the new Token System! EVERYONE will be able to earn token rewards daily just by logging into Shadowblockz!

The rewards are the following:
Everyone can earn 100 Tokens Daily
VIPs can earn a bonus 200 Tokens Weekly
VIP+s can earn a bonus 400 Tokens weekly
MVPs can earn a bonus 800 Tokens Weekly!

You can claim your daily and weekly rewards by visiting the Daily Rewards NPC in the Hub!

Tokens has been something on Shadowblockz that never really kicked off. It was first added when we launched Egg-Em-All, Capture The Cow and WizardRumble. However, since the MiniGames were removed Tokens were rather pointless.

However, this isn't the case anymore! Tokens can now be used to purchase crate keys and many more perks in the near future!

To spend your tokens you can either visit the Token Shop NPC in the Hub or execute the command /Token Shop. You can view how many tokens you have by typing /Token.
