    Hey everyone!

    Welcome to the third potato news!

    I hope everyone likes the new additions that we've made over the last couple of weeks, if anyone has any questions please feel free to post them on this thread.



    Mob Arena

    This event was highly suggested since we've opened, and we have now finally added it!

    At least every day, I will be hosting a Mob Arena event. I'm sure most of you already know what Mob Arena is, but in-case some of you don't, I'll explain it briefly.

    Mob Arena is an event where you fight off waves of mobs in an arena - the longer you last, the stronger the mobs get. Once the event begins, you will have to type /ma join arena to join. Once you're in the arena, you'll have to select a class (Knight, Tank or Archer). Once you've selected a class, right click the iron block in the lobby to ready up, and wait for the event to begin.

    The last 3 people alive will receive prizes that can range anywhere from in-game money to crate keys, It really depends on what I decide to hand out.

    There's no set schedule as to when these events will take place, but I'm going to try to do one every day (don't hold me to that :p)



    Supply Crates


    Every 6 hours, 20 supply crates will be dropped at /warp pvp.

    You can receive one of the following prizes for each supply crate you open:
    • 8 Gapples
    • 1x Diamond Helmet | Protection 4, Unbreaking 3
    • 1x Diamond Chestplate | Protection 4, Unbreaking 3
    • 1x Diamond Leggings | Protection 4, Unbreaking 3
    • 1x Diamond Boots | Protection 4, Unbreaking 3
    • 1x Diamond Sword | Sharpness 5, Knockback 2, Fire 2, Unbreaking 3
    • $75,000
    • $100,000
    • $250,000
    • 1x Rare Crate Key
    • 1x Mythical Crate Key
    • 1x Ultra Crate Key
    • 1x Blaze Spawner
    • 1x Cave Spider Spawner
    • 1x Creeper Spawner
    You'll have to come prepared to fight if you want a chance at getting these crates, and you'll have to be fast.

    You can use /supplycrates time to see when the crates are dropping. You can also use /supplycrates drops to see the locations of the crates after they're dropped.



    Chat Games

    We have added interactive chat games!

    Every 10 minutes, a math equation will be posted in chat (Ex: 428 + 922).
    The first person to solve the equation and post the correct answer in main chat, will receive $50,000!

    There's also a reaction chat game that will announce every 10 minutes.
    You will need to be the first person to say the word that is posted in chat to receive 1 Rare Key!

    So let's hope you're fast at typing!



    The Mall

    We have added a player operated marketplace!

    You can now rent stores in our server owned Mall at /warp mall.
    Currently stores go for $75,000 per week.

    There are a total of 42 available stores in the Mall, so grab one fast before they're all gone!



    Lucky Crates

    This is our version of the very popular mod, Lucky Blocks.

    From now on, whenever you are mining or excavating in the main survival world, you have a chance at finding a Lucky Crate.

    Typically Lucky Crates are found every 2000~ blocks you mine. You can only receive Lucky Crates in the overworld, they can't be found in the Nether or End world.

    You can receive one of the following prizes from each Lucky Crate you find:
    • $25,000
    • $50,000
    • $100,000
    • 1x Rare Crate Key
    • 1x Mythical Crate Key
    • 1x Ultra Crate Key
    • 32x Diamond Block, 32x Emerald Block, 64x Iron Block, 64x Gold Block
    • Hero Kit
    • Legend Kit
    • Potato Kit
    Good luck, get mining!



    3x3 Infusion Pickaxe

    We have added the 3x3 Infusion Pickaxe to our store!

    Purchasing this will give you an Infusion Tool Menu item that can be redeemed on any pickaxe.
    Once you redeem it, your pickaxe will have the Infusion I enchantment.

    This enchantment will break a 3x3 cube around wherever you mine.

    My suggestion is for the mob arena to start at a set time with its own separate crates.

    So you don't have to be on the exact time Amazing gets on.

    These are some really cool updates. First, I wanted to say this for myself and for anyone who is still playing in 1.11. I can no longer play on the potatomc server because i'm playing in an outdated version of mc. Originally you were able to use 1.12 and 1.11 and now its only 1.12. I'm sure other people want to to be changed to both versions again but if that isn't possible, thats fine.

    Also, second, when you are able to pick up bob spawners, were did you get that plugin/command? I would like to be able to use it in my single player world.

    I agree with carl, compatibility would be nice with both versions considering i can only play in 1.11 and not 1.12. Also, the mob spawners plugin or were you got it would be cool to use in a single player world.
