As those of you that have attempted to join survival will know, it will be resetting on Friday!
I wanted to make this post just to highlight the reasons for this and let you know what to expect from the new update.
As you may know, we updated to the 1.14 version when it was last released. After a few days, we started to notice that 1.14 was slightly laggy. This was inbuilt into Minecraft (its to do with the way that new chunks of the map are generated). The 1.15 Minecraft release contains many optimizations for chunk loading and therefore we decided that it would be a priority to update.
As well as being a much more responsive server we decided to add a shop. The shop is designed specifically for survival. The prices adjust based on the quantities of items being purchased and sold. This will result in the prices changing over time and reflecting the rarity of items in-game (I.e. dirt will become cheap but a diamond will get more expensive as time goes on)...
First off I want to say that this is about Christmas but we are an open community that accepts all religions. Whatever you choose to believe, You are a valued member of our community and are welcome to come and win a special holiday prize!
It’s that time of year again. This year we are going to be doing a giveaway as our way to give back to the Blockdrop community. Blockdrop has been a thriving community all year round and we think that this is a great way to add some extra excitement to 12 lucky people’s Christmas!
Each day on the lead up to Christmas (December 13th - 24th) We will broadcast a prize code in chat (in game) at a random time between 10am and 6pm EST. All you have to do to win is be the first person to say that prize code in the ’12 days of Christmas’ text channel on the Blockdrop discord!
Its that easy! We will have 1 winner per day for the whole 12 days. The winner will be able to choose from either:
I am proud to announce that, at the end of our TeamTrees event, we raised a total of $196. As promise, I will double that, using my own money, making the total from Blockdrop to be $392. That is 392 Trees planted!
I think we should be extremely proud that out community can contribute so much to such a worthy cause. To imagine how many 392 trees is, in real life and to then think that those came from our little corner of the internet, is truly great.
Thank you all for helping towards this goal.
As promised, the top 3 donators towards this get a free tag for life. Those users are:
