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 Surivival Games Brawl are being released along with the new Zincbox/Cove colab hub, the hub basically shows a clash of ZincBox and CoveMC coming together as one. Grapeapplesauce and BeastCoder thought it would be a great idea to have a smooth transition rather than us just moving on over to Cove, the new hub is very inviting to us Zincsters, it is nice that we are being welcomed into such a bigger and more diverse community.
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 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 colab hub
-New and Improved War Sword
-Holograms are back!
-Vanity huts! (Wardrobe in hub)
-NCP click 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 has 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 really 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
- and TONS more!
- Brand new 1v1 lobby!
- New maps! (including some old ones)
- No cheat bugs fixed
- Flint and Steel
- And TONS more!
- New map!
- Beautiful new mines!
- Upgraded plugin!
- Prison will be our last prioriy as we have a lot of work to do on it
- 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, and how are the players over there? There will be tons more players on Cove then ZincBox. We will have a more diverse community but from what i have seen from my time as admin on Cove, that i have observed, are very considerate and nice. Sure you 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!
Alot of you, i know, 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, wether it be a person, gamemode, or whatever.
