    Team Updates
    Monthly Feedback Threads
    Every month the Leads of our games will be posting Feedback/Update threads. These threads were designed as part of the 2016 Shotbow Roadmap, and their purpose is to make sure that the Leadership is aware of all major user-facing problems, as well as the direction that our community would like to see our games head in. While we won't be designing our games by committee anytime soon, keeping an ear close to the ground and an open mind should definitely improve our process and lead to better and more enjoyable games for everyone.
    Below you'll find links to the feedback threads for all of our current playable games - each manned by someone responsible for hearing your feedback and getting it implemented. Please be sure to click through and participate in the discussion!

    4 more weeks until the end of 2016. I'll be patiently waiting for the 1.9 update.

    I bet a new major combat update will come before 1.9 gets rolled in here.

    I doubt that 1.9 will come before 2016 and I can promise that a least of few of the developers have Christmas.

    Our plan is to launch 1.9 this year. That's a pretty tight deadline, and we might not meet it if we encounter some unforeseen difficulties.

    But we're going for it.

    Also... I think the reason the player peak is dying is because Minecraft is losing popularity. 1.9 absolutely killed it, and ever since Mojang/Microsoft/whoever's doing updates has basically been implementing mods. R.I.P. Minecraft 2011-2016.
    And where's this week's banner? :stuck_out_tongue:
    Edit: Meant to say Arrow, not banner. The Arrow itself is what matters.

    Oh, and by the way... is there not much going on within Shotbow, or is there just so much happening that you don't have time to share? Just asking.

    Still Shotbow is in 1.8, so it wouldn't make sense why players would leave. Besides even if Shotbow updates to 1.9 they've set it up so many of Minecraft's changes won't be implemented.
