Greetings! Shotbow is happy to be switching hosts to Path, who is working with us closely to solve our lag issues.
However, this comes with some unfortunate news: we're going to have to bring all Shotbow services down for the transfer to the new host. During this process, we'll also be cleaning up our internal systems to ensure expandability in the future. For this reason, we have no timeframe for the downtime. It could be as short as a few hours, or as long as a week — we don't anticipate it to be longer than a week.
To reiterate, all games and web services will go down when the host transfer starts, and while we aim to get this transfer done as quickly as possible, we do not have a clear-cut end time for this.
Please bear with us while this is going on. Any updates will be posted to our Twitter and our Discord, so stay tuned by following us there!
We really hope that our efforts this week will lead to a better experience for all players. Thanks for flying Shotbow!
Hello survivors! Thanks to your input, the MineZ Spookfest is back for 2019. Starting tomorrow (Saturday, October 5), a treat chest will spawn at designated times, listed below! However, the mechanics are slightly different than in previous years, so please read carefully.
How it works
Every Saturday and Sunday, a treat chest will spawn at 12 PM CST (EU time) and 6 PM CST (US time) at a designated location on the MineZ map. In addition, the chests will spawn for the 3 days leading up to Halloween, at the same times: 12 PM CST and 6 PM CST on October 29, 30, and 31.
Each treat chest will consist of an assortment of Halloween goodies, rares, collectibles, useful items, and the traditional spooky pumpkin.
In the past, the MineZ Treat Chests have been unfairly advantaged towards players that have alternate accounts scattered across the map — effectively making it so that the person with the most map coverage with their alternate accounts gets the treat chest. We thought this was unfair, so this year, we’ve come up with a solution to alternate account abusing.
Rather than being hosted on a public server, the treat chest will be spawned on a private server with premium-only turned off. The premium-only filter will be turned off 30 minutes before the treat chest spawns. Players must be on the server before the treat chest spawns.
At the designated spawn time, the server will be whitelisted, the treat chest will be spawned, and the location will be announced.
While this plan lessens the chance of altnerate account abuse, it does not completely mitigate it. For this reason, if a single player has any alternate accounts on the private server, all accounts in question will be permanently banned. In addition, if we notice that alternate accounts are still being abused, we will shut down the Spookfest event for everyone.
We hope the community can collaborate with us to make sure that the Spookfest is as fair as possible for all players. Thanks for understanding!
