Well hey ZincBox! It is finally happening: in just 2 days, ZincBox will be reduced to 1v1 and FFA. As many of you know by now we are merging, which means we are moving over to a different server, CoveMC.net. Survival Games as well as Survival Games Brawl are being released along with the new Zincbox/Cove collaborative hub. Grapeapplesauce and BeastCoder thought it would be a great idea to have a smooth transition rather than us just moving on over to Cove, so we decided that it might be a good idea to collaborate between the two servers to bring you something that involves and represents both communities!
What you can expect on the 30th:
-Survival Games and Surivial Games Brawl release
- LOTS of new maps!
- Added "Cove Crate" (once per game, a tier 3 chest spawns!)
- Tiering has been nerfed to mimic MCSG tiers
- ALL maps tiered
- New lobbies!
- NCP bugs patched!
- Tons more details that you will have to see for yourself!
-ZincBox/Cove collaborative hub
-New and improved War Sword
-Holograms are back!
-Vanity huts! (wardrobe in hub)
-Click in-game NPCs to open gamemodes!
-Release of forums (hopefully!)
-Complete retire of gems (now called Coins)
-Parkour with a reward!
-Many more things you may notice when playing for yourself!
-Introduction to Viking rank!
What exactly will be taking place on the 30th? Well, SGB will be removed from ZincBox. Prison and Factions have already been removed. ZincBox will remain as a 1v1/FFA server until BeastCoder finishes their full development! Staff will also be transfered over as well as remaining staff on ZincBox until we implement 1v1/FFA onto cove (which will be very soon).
What else can we expect to see on Cove? Here is what you can expect (I cant give away too much)
- New maps! (still including the good old ZincBox map!)
- New killstreaks! (yes we are keeping killstreaks! However, we are getting rid of the OP ones and replacing them)
- Glitches fixed
- Stats added
- /save added (to save your hotbar setup!)
- Flint and Steel
- TONS more!
- Brand new 1v1 lobby!
- New maps! (including some old ones)
- No-cheat bugs fixed
- Flint and Steel
- TONS more!
- New map!
- Beautiful new mines!
- Upgraded plugin!
- There has been talk of a lot of brand new minigames and sadly I can not give you guys info on this!
- Adding loads of things around the server
- Can't give you guys more info or i will be in big trouble!
Will I keep my Factions/Prison/Global donor rank that purchased on ZincBox? Yes of course! Only paid for ranks will be transferred over, so if you won a rank or were handed a rank it will not transfer. NOTE: PLEASE BE PATIENT AS WE HAVE A LOT OF RANKS TO SORT THROUGH. WE WILL GET TO YOU.
What about stats? Will they transfer too? No. Sadly, we will not be transferring stats. We have decided that it would be impossible for Cove players to rank up in stats if we are hogging the leaderboards, so we all have to work extra hard to show that we can stay at the top and compete with them!
What about our small community? How are the players over there? There will be tons more players on Cove than ZincBox. Sure they have some of the rude players, but we have that on Zinc as well. Overall, it will be a great expierience for all of us!
A lot of you are very uneasy when it comes to this merge. There were a lot of memories made on here and I admit I am also made uneasy when it comes to this. Some of us made some powerful friendships, some of us lost some great friends, and some of us made our existing friendships stronger. Some of us climbed the leaderboards spending countless hours trying to be the best, some of us would come on just to mess around and have fun. Whatever your reason is for coming on ZincBox, I want you to comment it below, right now, whether it be a person, gamemode, or whatever.
A note from your old owner Ian
Just spent the entire College Speaking 120 period running through this, weeding out the grammatical errors.
Aside from that, you guys are gonna love it over there. Honestly, it's a fantastic network, and I wish you all the best. The servers are maintained pretty well (here's to hoping Cole gets his priorities in the right places) and the management is superb. I couldn't have left you guys in better hands. Probably the last you'll be hearing of me for a while.
We'll see you around.
