Dentril's New Moon - November 2021
  1. MrJack Film Crew Co-Lead, Mini Admin


    Happy Fall Shotbow! The spooky season of October was lively with great content, such as MineZ Spookfest, Annihilation Clan Wars, the return of Ghostcraft, and so much more! This edition of Dentril's New Moon we'll look at all the festivities of the past month, and take a look into the future of Shotbow as we move into November!

    Gamemode Updates

    SMASH Updates
    SMASH is back again with another great update! The Pretty Spooky Update dropped just this past week, with a nice gallery of changes! With maps added to the rotation, new items, and changes to the weight distribution of items, SMASH should feel fresh with this latest update!

    We hope the usual bugfixes in addition with updates to the party and tip systems help keep SMASH lively! Keep an eye out for more work from BrendanLeeT, who helped make this update possible!

    MineZ Updates
    October and Spookfest is one of the biggest seasons for MineZ, and this year was no different! Featuring two headhunts and dozens of treat chests, MineZ was lively with lots of PvP, and tons of balance changes to boot. The highly requested buff to splash potions has finally landed on top of lots of bug fixes, dungeon tweaks, and so much more! To catch up on all the details, check out the MineZ Changelog and the Spookfest Announcement.

    As Spookfest comes to a close and the regular MineZ map returns, keep an eye out for more updates moving forwards as we continue to enjoy some of these changes post-spookfest!

    Ghostcraft Updates
    All month long we've been enjoying the resurgence of an old favorite gamemode - Ghostcraft! The community and staff both came together to enjoy some nostalgic memories from the earlier days of Shotbow! It helmed a great month of spooky Halloween themed content, and we'll enjoy it for the duration it's around! We'll look forward to continuing to play a few games of Ghostcraft with you all!

    Annihilation Updates
    The next update to Annihilation is on the horizon, Serious Gallium! Though the update itself is yet to launch, the very recent announcement from our dedicated crew contains a community vote! An important part of the near update, a touch-up of the Scout class, needs some input from our beloved community. Check out the timetable for test matches so you can have your say in the coming update!

    Closing Words
    There have been so many great events this past month, and seeing old and new players alike come together to enjoy Spookfest, Ghostcraft, and so much more has made for another great October season! I for one always look forward to the holiday seasons, and seeing the rest of the Network come together to share in those experiences has been wonderful. As we continue to trek into the holiday months, keep an eye out for continued updates to all your favorite gamemodes, as well as other changes to the Network as a whole(such as the new verification system to our discord - later bots!).

    I've been your host, MrJack O' Lantern, and as always, we'll see you next month with more updates. Thanks for flying Shotbow!
