This arrow is pretty short as all of the developers are deep in 1.9 bug resolution. There's not much public we can say about progress, except that it is ongoing.
Please get out there onto the 1.9 beta and test! Look, if you don't help us test 1.9, you're not allowed to complain if we release a buggy 1.9.
Note: The links below are in US Central time by default. Check the Events page for a full list of events. The timezone of that list is then displayed on the lower left of the page, and should be the same timezone you've set for use on the forums.
Be aware! Scheduled Events are not our only events! Staff hold events constantly. The best way to be aware of current events? Keep an eye on our twitter account for event announcements!
Annihilation All Classes Unlocked Match
Every Saturday the Annihilation Team will be running a completely free-to-play match, where you can test out classes you don't have and find out what you might want - while enjoying some time with the Network Staff. Games will begin at 3pm Central Time. (US Central for us.shotbow.net and EU Central for eu.shotbow.net)

XP Code Goalposts
As the counts get higher, it gets more difficult to hit our goals. As such, I've decided to UP the amount of XP given out for each goal! (Even our tinier ones).
You'll learn the new number the next time we reach a goal - which is looking pretty good for YouTube

It's that time again! It has been quite a while since our last round of Annihilation Applications, and we have decided to reopen those to find some talent in the community.
Please note, when you apply for Annihilation Admin, it is important to take your time with it, and make sure you write it with sincerity and honesty.
While it is not an explicit requirement, we often encourage usage of proper grammar and punctuation to allow for an easier time to review applications.
If you have previously been banned on the network for any reason, this does not exempt you from applying. We do, however, ask that you be honest and tell us upfront if you have been banned previously. We have ways of verifying you are being honest!
Finally, I want everyone to know when they apply, there is no guarantee that you will be accepted. We factor in many things and reserve the right to accept/decline anyone for any reason. It is also for that same reason, that even if you are not accepted through these applications, this does not prevent you from having an opportunity later on.
Applications will close on September 24th at 12:00 PM CST. Please be sure to apply before then! Good luck!
