    So 1.11 Releases tomorrow and it Comes with these EXACT THINGS:

    Llamas

    By far the fan favourite announcement of the whole convention, the revelation that llamas would be coming to Minecraft is, bizarrely, huge news. Apart from looking like llamas, the new mobs will have a number of bespoke features to make them stand out. For starters, they’ll be able to spit, which despite being incredibly rude and obnoxious is also an effective means of ranged attack.

    Jens also said the player would be able to “swag them out with carpets,” which are essentially saddles but with some added visual flair. You can also attach satchels to llamas in order to use them like pack mules. Better still, if you use a lead on a llama, all nearby llamas will automatically form a caravan behind the llama you’re leading.

    Woodland Mansion

    New places for treasure and dungeon crawling are always welcome among the Minecraft community, and the addition of incredibly difficult, procedurally-generated mansions should give players plenty more to do when they reach the end of the game. The Woodland Mansion dungeon type will be very rare, but will offer some intriguing rewards courtesy of its three new hostile mobs: Evoker, Vex and Vindicator. As menacing as those names are, the mobs are actually just...

    The CraftBlock Weekly!
    Issue #37 - New and Exciting!
    He left me on yellow and I'm not going to blind everyone with that.


    Hiya people, so I know Lking had just started the weeky back up, but it’s now transferred over to me. And I’ll be honest I don’t know what I’m doing, but it seems simple enough. Anyways this weekly is going to be a bit short as there wasn't much happening in the world of craftblock this week. But let me cover what did go on.


    New and Old staff members

    We’ve said goodbye to quite a few staff this last week, some over disagreements, others having just moved on from Minecraft. Whichever the case we wish them well on their future adventures. So with such farwells we’ve moved a few notable members up to staff to try and bulk our numbers back up, congrats guys~!

    Hey guys, as I'm sure you've heard from the weekly I'm now running all our social media.

    Now I don't know if you've seen these accounts or not but just a quick peek will show that they're in desperate need of some love and the first thing I'd like to do is update them with some cool builds by our players. But instead of hopping into game and leaving signs on random builds and hoping people get back to me I figured a nice post here would be a little more organized.

    So you can either post the pictures of your builds yourself here, and I'll be happy to throw them onto our social media, or you can leave the cords for me to go and take the pictures myself. Either way works for me.

    There really isn't much criteria for making the cut, just the things you've built that you're proud of on the server that are complete please. :haha!:

    Also be sure you've removed the toolbar and cross-hairs by using F1

    Just did a huge batch of changes to the server that may or may not help the server perform better.

    Can you guys help us by playing on the server and tell us if anything broke?

    Some events that can happen:

    • More lag.
    • Slow chunk updates (loading the map)
    • Less to no animals/monsters spawning (We decreased the limits, but was it too much?)
    • Plugins/Commands not working.
    • Entities despawning.
    • Generally weird events.

    Did we make the server perform better or worst? post here! Thanks.

    R.I.P. Autorank
    You heard that right, folks. We've made the popular decision to remove the pure Autorank system in exchange for something more similar to what we used to...
