    Three Years Strong. More than, really. It's always been a little confusing when the Anniversary of "The Shotbow Network" is. Is it the launch of HCFactions? The launch of MineZ? GhostCraft? LMS? When we changed our name to "The Shotbow Network?" When we decided to change our name to "The Shotbow Network?" There are too many possibilities so we've settled on one - July 5th, 2012 - The incorporation date of the company: HCGaming, LLC.
    We didn't have much time to plan this year, but we do have a very fun present for you all! With the help of the newly founded Graphics Team, and Seegercraft in particular, we've put together a Wallpaper Pack! Including some never before-seen renders for some of our minigames.

    It's been an amazing three+ years, and we certainly can't wait for the next three! Make us proud, Shotbow!

    Scheduled Events
    Annihilation Map Testing
    The Annihilation Team plans to test out maps every week on Tuesday! This week we're introducing a new early morning map test, specifically for our Asia/Australia/Oceania players!

    XP Code Goalposts

    Congrulations Twitter for hitting 16,000 followers! Redeem the XP code: TWTR16K

    This week showed amazing progress for Player.me which more than doubled its follower count! No doubt due to the new feature we're experimenting with on it. What's really strange is how much the YouTube count has stagnated, especially now that we're releasing more and more videos on it!

    That typo

    Too hype for me.

    I would love if when starting a match you could make a 2v2 specifically (the sign itself) so more people play/know about it, but overall great update.
