    Important Notices
    Premium members no longer have a discount for the XP shop. The existence of the discount alongwith a premium-only multiplier was an overlooked mistake from changes made late last year. Thusly, in order to properly balance our games, we have found it necessary to remove the discount. Premium members will, however, continue to get their individual XP multiplier when playing games.

    In addition to this, most items in the XP shop have been reduced in cost by 20%! Making it just a little bit easier to grab a new class for Annihilation or some spawn items to help you get north quicker in MineZ Classic!

    Scheduled Events
    Weekly Developer Stream

    Every week we plan to stream Shotbow Network Development - whether it's a gamemode, the website, or something else. The stream will start, as always, at 6pm CDT on Wednesday. If you'd like to be reminded, you can watch our twitter or RSVP on your favorite social network:

    Annihilation Map Testing
    The Annihilation Team plans to test out maps every week on Tuesday! These map tests will run from midnight-1am BST for US, and 7-8pm BST for EU.

    Annihilation All Classes Unlocked Match
    Every Saturday the Annihilation Team will be running a completely free-to-play match, where you can test out classes you don't have and find out what you might want - while enjoying some time with the Network Staff. Games will begin at 3pm Central Time. (US Central for us.shotbow.net and EU Central for eu.shotbow.net)

    It's unfortunate that we have yet to surpass it. We've got some exciting updates in the pipeline that should help drive player activity, though!

    XP Code Goalposts

    Good movement on Facebook and Twitter again this week. Those two continuously slowly crawl towards their goals. The rest, not so well, despite perhaps having the largest amount of room to hit their goals. Isn't it easier for player.me to hit their goal than Facebook?

    More advertising is needed for more players. Just saying.

    and this is the 2nd week ive missed Free class game on anni, can you add two games? One at 3pm and one at 6pm? (Shotbow time is two hours ahead of me: 1pm and 4pm)
  8. MOAB4leader Platinum

    For the screen shot btw....
    I HATED THAT PLACE! Like I want there once with a team and it took us so long to get back together

    Would It be possible to update the PMC page a little? It is rather outdated, and we could put in all these nice screenshots that people have made, rather than pictures of the lobby and a couple of old gamemodes.

    This is not where suggestions belong. It is a project we're working on
  13. Superbob1000 Retired Staff

    I liked this one especially for some reason. :lmao:

    But vampire_toothy is not a graphic artist. He is an Anni Admin. o_O

    Those crafty, crafty bombs... (Small typo in that sentence btw)

    I never actually got to play Control, so maybe I'll give it a shot. :)

    You forgot to include all of the admins that left! There were tons, and they have done so much for the Network, why not commemorate them?

    I don't think any left in the last week? We also only mention leaving admins when they are okay with it. We don't want people to hassle them

    "We've got some exciting updates in the pipeline that should help drive player activity, though!"

    Sure hope so...
