Português, Español, 日本語, Русский, Français, Deutsch Hello Shotbow! My name is Mistri, and I'll be your host for this month's edition of Dentril's New Moon, Shotbow's monthly newsletter. This month was full of awesome updates, and I can't wait to share them with you. Without further ado, let's jump right into it! Updates Network Updates We have posted clarifications about our stance on Lunar Client and Cosmic Client. You can read the full statement here. In summary, we have found ways that these clients can be used to gain an unfair advantage, but we are not outright banning people for using these clients. This message was just a warning to let you know that you may be gaining an unfair advantage by using these clients, and we will use the same punishments as we normally do if you are caught cheating with them. We are currently in talks with the Lunar Client team in hopes to resolve these advantages that we have uncovered. More information may be announced in the future. Slaughter Updates This month, we released a brand-new, much-needed re-vamp of Slaughter. It features a ton of bugfixes, mob changes, gameplay features, and more! You can view the announcement and full changelog here. MineZ Updates The MineZ Team released a statement in early January about a recap of 2020 and future plans for 2021, which can be found here. In addition, the PTR for the MineZ Bank is finally here! The long-awaited persistent inventory has been released for public testing. You can read all about it here.
