    Hello there! We’re back again very soon after the Bridges update with another game update! This time we’re changing up Survival Games a little bit. Once again this update has been made possible by you, all because everything has been inspired by your feedback and suggestions!

    I’d like to give a special shout-out to our community teams that helped us with the development, Game Insights, and Ideas Team as well as Community Management. So what's this update all about?. Well, this update is once again full of balance changes to kits but there are also some major gameplay changes. Chest refill is making a comeback, the border now does a little bit less damage and players who leave mid-game will now drop their items! And let us not forget about the bug fixes, ever had a supply drop stuck in a tree? Those times are now over! For a full list of changes check out the change-log below.​

    - Decreased the spawn rate of arrows by 50%

  2. First!

    Another really cool update. I'm glad to see that they're starting to roll out super quick now. A bridges and SG update within the same month is insane. Shoutout to GI, CoM and Production for this update, and hopefully this will be a sign of many more to come in the future :)

    Champions update next? ;)

    If we screwed anything up balance-wise I'll take that fall. Definitely hope we didn't though.

  9. Wow! I'm honestly so happy to see yet another game update so soon after one was just released! Honestly, I really like the way these updates are being pulled off by involving almost all of the subteams like IT, GI, and even CoM! SG is one of those games that didn't receive an update in a very long time and I'm glad developers are actively looking into games that haven't been touched in a long time and making updates for them! If we can expect to see this type of schedule happening for the rest of the year then I'm not worried about any of the games lacking updates anytime soon! Once again, fantastic job to everyone who's been involved!! Can't wait to see what game gets updated next! :D

    I'm super happy that we have gotten two new game updates recently! I'm also really happy with the fact that Game Insights's document was taken into account when creating the update. Huuuuuuge shoutout to Sobki for working on these updates, as they are greatly appreciated by the entire community. However, the real question is, when are new going to see a Champions, the best game on Mineplex, update? :eyes:

  11. It's great to see another game update so soon after the Bridges update! I'm glad to see the changes, most of them look good and I'm excited to try them out.

  12. I like the idea of more frequent updates, even though they're balancing instead of adding new content. Good job guys.
    Posted Mar 22, 2020
  13. Finally, this update was released after a long enough time of testing! Thanks for everyone who made this update possible, mostly GI & QA/T teams. I hope people will enjoy that as SG was one of the games which haven't got any updates for more than a year and which is popular enough game.

  15. I'm happy but was the invis horseman glitch fixed? Not on the list but feel like that should have been a pretty high priority.
