Français, Русский, 日本語, Español, Türkçe, Deutsch Hey everyone! My name is Mistri and I'll be your host for this month's edition of Dentril's New Moon. Without further ado, let's jump right into the updates! Updates Network Updates As a result of the non-stop efforts of lazertester and aet2505, we have fully transitioned our backend to Kubernetes, a new cutting-edge technology. If you're interested about the technical aspect of this update, or about our legacy server deployment system, check out this awesome write-up about the transition! With this update comes better reliability and stability, and also better tools for our developers to diagnose and patch issues as soon as possible. While you may not notice it at first, we will gradually be able to handle stability and lag issues faster starting now. Let us know if you notice any differences in the comments below. Annihilation Updates A new Annihilation update, Nifty Boron, was released early this month. It included many class changes, balance changes, bug fixes, and a lot more! You can read all about it here, and check out its teaser trailer here. Community Events The community-run Annihilation Clan War has continued, with staff commentary available for your pleasure. This month, we premiered match 16, which can be viewed here: (Writer's note: the ending of this Clan War had me on the edge of my seat. It was a fantastic game and I highly recommend you watch it!) MineZ Updates This month, we released an awesome update for MineZ, called First Steps. It includes new mobs, legendary item changes, and much more. It's jam-packed with fantastic content — if you haven't already read about it, you can find the full thread here. As usual, work continues on MineZ, so expect to see some updates in the next few days! SMASH Updates This month, we announced an official tournament for SMASH, complete with a bracket and prizes.
