Dentril's New Moon - April 2022
  1. Mistri Network Lead


    Happy April, Shotbow! This month's edition of Dentril's New Moon is full of exciting updates. Let's jump right into it!

    Network Updates
    Monetization & Voting Updates
    If you've been with Shotbow for a while, you'll know that Shotbow disabled individual XP voting rewards, and stopped selling XP, due to a change in the Minecraft EULA that restricted us. The Shotbow team has recently re-reviewed the latest revision of the Minecraft EULA, and realized that we can make some adjustments to monetization strategies relating to Shotbow XP.

    To begin, we are re-instating per-user voting rewards! Each time you vote for Shotbow, you will receive 50 XP immediately! You can vote on each of the 6 voting sites per day, which will give you up to 300 XP per day, which is over 9,000 XP per month.

    These rewards are added in addition to the voting milestones, which will release a 2,500 XP code for every 2,500 votes!

    Go vote now to get these awesome rewards on vote.shotbow.net!

    We'll be releasing more monetization changes coming soon. Keep your eyes peeled for the future!

    Team Updates
    The Shotbow team is creating a new rank called the Helper rank! While the details are still being finalized, Helpers will be responsible for duties that don't fall into the categories of banning hackers, building, or developing; think game design, player support, and much more! There will be two variations, Mini Helper and Helper. We will be onboarding our first Helpers very soon, so keep an eye out for the future!

    Localization Updates
    We apologize for the delays in getting back to Localization applicants. We are experiencing internal issues and will respond to all Localization team applications as soon as we can. Thanks for your patience!

    Gamemode Updates

    4 months into 2022 and still no marketing plan, still the same shitty 2014 banning/unbanning system, less than 300 players per game (currently 21 people playing anni lmfao), game updates are okay but most class are useless and need to be revamped.

    I've seen countless posts of members of the community trying to help with ideas for fixing the classes, the game, marketing, how to properly ban and unban people and ditch the awful outdated system you guys use and I've NEVER see one admin or staff commenting, its almost like the admins here don't give a shit about the community ideas and do whatever pleases them.

    Axyy did this INCREDIBLE post (posted in december 2021) and theres ZERO comments from any staff or admin, clearly shows how much the staff cares about great ideas.


    Been playing this since 2014 and it has turned into such a joke.
