I am excited to be bringing you another great update to the Blockdrop Network. Opening tomorrow will be the 1st release of the new Arcade style mini games system. But what does this mean? read below!
Is this just the old mini games but with their own lobby?
No! We think that every game has to have some kind of progression. Most servers have smaller games (SkyWars, bedwars etc) with no prizes, no real reason for actually winning a game. Most of the time even if they offer prizes, they are either pointless, or only useable on that specific game mode. We noticed this and decided to make these smaller games a whole lot more fun. We have added back the Enderdust merchant and customised it to work great with the Arcade games. This means that every time you win a game In any of the arcade games, you will win Enderdust. This Enderdust can be used to purchase gadgets/suits/emotes etc in the lobby and those items can also be used across the whole network of Arcade games. We think that this bring all of the Arcade games together greatly as-well as adding some purpose and goals to these game modes.
Will it be the same game modes?
No. Over time we will be updating the game modes to more modern and less pvp based game modes. Starting on Friday with 'Murder Mystery' (I know a lot of people are going to be hyped for that!) and then continuing into the future. If you have any ideas for great new Arcade games then please comment them on this thread!
Can I still buy a rank?
No. Ranks have gone off sale and the only items you can get are the cosmetic items. These cosmetic items do not effect game play and this means that you won't be getting killed by a donator because they have better items than you. We think that keeping everything fair and even is important for Arcade games.
