    Anything new with WiR, Wasted: Control, Flappy Chick, UHC, etc.? I've been waiting for you to mention something with them (especially Flappy Chick... NOT)

    Is there somewhere where this week's dev stream is archived? I missed the first ten or so minutes. :(
  6. Fluffoon Retired Staff

    I wonder if you missed to mention Darn's leaving intentionally....
    Though he was considered by a lot as a jerk, noone can ignore his contribution to the community: either by testing maps or running events.
    Personally, I will miss him...

    Yee Qubion Contest hype! No one? Alright. :stuck_out_tongue:

    As always, nice weekly arrow. I myself have not really been able to play Assault yet, probably going to try it somewhere next week.

    I bet so, but if they said so they'd have to kill us. :wink:
    It oughta be on the Shotbow official YT channel; they usually are.
    I will too -- he sure did a lot for us. Who's going to take his place? Not many can...

    Is there somewhere where I can re watch the beginning of last week's since I missed it?
  17. Navarr Councilor


    Not yet. I don't have a recording of it at this moment in time.
  18. Jeroenhero Retired Developer

    I live in an EU timezone and watching the streams isn't really possible for me.
    So will they come on YouTube again? They are pretty interesting and educational :wink:
  19. KittensZ Platinum

    Gold Rush
    Resource packs?
    Crafting Mama?
    Cheers? (i.e. friends plugin)
    Such Majicou, much MineZ
    Expansion of one of the MineZ maps? (Since it is such a long-term thing :lmao:)

    So, I'd like to explain The Shotbow Network's logic in creating this new game, but before that let's go back some months ago.

    "We are removing Shotbow Games because it was unoriginal and imbalanced because of Hulk"

    Then comes this game, "Assault" which is a BLATANT copy of Starwars Battlefront 2. So what Shotbow is saying is that Shotbow Games was unoriginal but this obvious copy of SBF 2 isn't? Please explain to me why you couldn't just remove Hulk kit and keep your best game in my opinion...
    Thanks for listening!
