The Summer Festival was a huge success, with the bonus XP multiplier, sale, custom pet, custom Annihilation lobby and map, and more! Fun fact: over the entire week, a total of 17,904,086 Shotbow XP was earned!
The SMASH team has introduced a new system which allows Media Partners and Creators to host their own events on an exclusive map which they can customise to their own liking. This feature can be accessed using the small YouTube block which is located near the big fountain in the SMASH lobby. Stay tuned for broadcasts that signal when these fun events are starting!
The upcoming Annihilation update has been going really well and you can expect it soon. If you want to stay updated with what's going on, be sure to check the Twitter for updates!
The current phase is getting to an end and there will be a new phase within the next month. The rought timeframe is around 2 weeks until someone wins, and then 1 week of downtime (where the server will still be up). After this, Civ-War will release its second beta (with a lot of new features), open to the public. Until then, all premiums can still join the server!
This month, once again, the MineZ team has been hard at work to bring some new updates that are coming soon, as well as work to fix the lag. Lots more is on its way, so stay tuned!
Qubion has recently announced that they have completely terminated all operations. Read about it here.
The summer season ends on October 1st, so be sure to climb up the leaderboards for ranked matches! Current standings are:
- 1st place: BigGiantKing with 1263 ELO
- 2nd place: InvernalAngel with 1195 ELO
- 3rd place: _BrightDarkness_ with 1173 ELO
- Catsage was promoted to full admin
- DJ_Pedro, JTGangsterLP6, Lomrun_, and Mistri joined the MineZ Mini Admin team
- There were 1,502 players banned in the last month
- This month we achieved a peak playercount of 880 on August 19.
This month, we're bringing back Player Peak, but in a slightly different way. As you can see above, our highest playercount was 880 people, which is amazing. However, if we can hit over 1,000 players online at one time during the next month, we will do a Platinum rank giveaway on the Twitter!

What is Civ-War?
Civ-War is a game about building civilizations set in a large, persisent world filled with players. Players start out as nomads, gathering resources and making allies until they can build a camp. Gather more resources and allies and found a civilization! Research technology! Build structures! Conquer the world!
Venture outward from spawn into the wild and find a spot to settle. You may encounter trade resources, and other player towns which will influence your decision on where to settle. Different biomes generate different resources.
Resources and Materials
Civ-War contains many new custom items. These items are crafted using a crafting bench and combining many more normal Minecraft items into higher tier items. Certain items like iron, gold, diamonds, and emeralds can be exchanged for Coins at the Bank structures. Coins can be traded for materials at the Market.
Towns can be created by players to protect areas from outsiders. Inside a town the owners are free to build creatively without interference from griefers. Towns cost materials to create and Coins to maintain. Towns can build functional structures which allow its residents access to more features. Towns can only be built inside of a civilization.
Civilizations are collections of towns. All towns inside of the civilization share technology which is researched by the civ. Many items and structures in Civ-War are only obtainable through the use of technology. Founding your own civ is a lot of work, you must be a natural leader and bring people together in order for your civ to survive and flourish.
War allows civilizations to settle their differences. Normally, all structures inside a civilization are protected from damage. However, civs have the option to declare war on each other and do damage to each other's structures, and even capture towns from each other. Each weekend, WarTime is enabled for two hours during which players at war must defend their civ and conquer their enemies.
How Can I Play?
If you're a premium, you automatically have access to Civ-War, so just join our hub and find "Civ-War" in the server selector. Not a premium?
