    Hey bees,

    A few months ago, we posted a thread about the fantastic upcoming updates we have. Right now it's time to get sp00py! Here is the short version:

    [​IMG]
    Remember to thank Team Nectar for their excellent work!

    Halloween Hub
    As always, and with the help from Team Nectar, we've brought back our festive Halloween hub! It's had some changes, including but not limited to:
    • New "Ghost Hunt" - Can you find all the ghosts and claim the prize?
    • Circus
    • Tent Coaster
    • + other small tweaks we're sure you'll love!
    To keep everything fun, we ask that players not reveal the ghost locations on the forums until the 21st (That's next Monday!). Any threads exposing them will be moved.

    What's your favourite Halloween game?

    Seasonal Games, Maps & More
    We've brought back our much loved Halloween games, Survive the Night and Pumpkinfection! Statistics have been reset from both games. However, players will keep their achievement trophies from last year (if you had them!)

    We've also pinned the following maps as they fit the Halloween/spooky theme. These maps will be unpinned when Halloween is over, so don't worry if they're not your favourite maps in the world:
    • DeathRun
      • Crystal Night
    • BedWars
      • Haunted (Duos)
      • Sleepy Hollow (Duos)
      • Hell (Fours)
    • Trouble in Mineville
      • FunFair
      • Spectral
    • Murder in Mineville
      • Misty Manor
    • SkyWars
      • Spoopy
    • SkyGiants
      • Witch's Lair
    Think we missed a map? Feel free to post below, and we'll get it pinned depending on the game and map!

    BlockParty players can also join in with the spooky festivities, as "Spooky Scary Skeletons" is now available to vote for in the song vote menu. Listen quick, though! Only available for Halloween.

    "Bat Wings" from the Ultimate Store Bundle
    LuckyCrates & Sale
    The Halloween Loot Set for LuckyCrates is now active. This means while Halloween is active, any LuckyCrate you open will give you high-quality cosmetics themed on Halloween. Why not grab some while they're on sale, or even save them up for Christmas?!

    As we've been trying to do with all seasonal updates, we've got some awesome bundles available on the store for super good value! Purchase a bundle to receive crates, ranks + impressive and exclusive cosmetics.

    Thanks, bees!
    We hope you enjoy the games, cosmetics and the hub changes + additions. We've got so much planned, and a lot of that relies on Java 2 which is making significant progress. We can't wait to show you more!

    Stay awesome,
    The (Spooky) Hive Team

    Y’all can’t believe how long I’ve been waiting for these games.. probably a year lmao
    Now see me not joining the server because school likes to be busy!
    I swear if that happens —
    Okay see you soon, games.

    Just because you've submitted a map, it doesn't mean we have to accept it, the same with suggestions. That being said, we haven't added any new maps for Halloween (even from Team Nectar) as they take time to configure, and that is time we'd rather be putting into the Java 2 rewrite. Map submissions and suggestions will be looked through once that is released, as then we can actually implement them.
