Hi everyone,

Welcome back to another announcement! We are incredibly excited about the increased popularity in Skyblock lately, and the team would like to continue this positive trend by providing you guys with more frequent updates. Today, we are launching a set of new features on the server, and through this post I'd like to tell you more about them! Let's get started...

Mob Coin Generators
We have just launched Mob Coin Generators on the store and in-game mob coin shop. Generators are physical items which can be deployed on your island in order to generate mob coins. Each generator automatically generates a set amount of coins for every minute that the owner is online (depending on the tier)... and also include extra island levels whilst the generator is deployed. Each island can contain a maximum amount of 3 generators of each type, so that the levels bonus is not abused.

Pouches Update
Another Mob Coins update is the addition of Pouches. Players can now purchase Mob Coin pouches from the server store in a variety of different quantities (ranging from 0 to 3000 coins). These are great if you but don't want to go through the effort of killing mobs, or simply need a quick boost in coins to purchase new items from the mob coin shop.

New Super Items
We just launched 3 new super items on the store: The Trencher Pickaxe, Durable Pickaxe and Smasher Sword. Learn more about them below.
  • Trencher Pickaxe: This pickaxes allows you to mine at a much faster rate than usual, as it will destroy all blocks within a 3x3 area
  • Durable Pickaxe: This pickaxe allows you to mine for a much longer amount of time at once, as the item has a high level of durability
  • Smasher Sword: This sword allows you to kill an entire stack of stacked mobs at once, instead of killing them one a time
Island Top Update
The island top for this week and last week will be paid out today, our apologies for the delay as we were dealing with some technical issues. On the topic of island payouts, please take note the following rule change which was added as of today (but will not impact today's top payout).
  • Splitting Value/Island Wealth: Splitting Island Wealth in order to gain an advantage to win (multiple) payouts is prohibited. Participating in the island top competition is limited to one island per player. Giving out wealth to players, friends or alts to get a double position in the island top is not allowed and will result in your island being disqualified for one week. In addition, all value will be removed from the alt island and the players who are actively participating in the violation will be banned. Please note that using an alt island as a grinder is allowed, but will not count towards payouts and is not allowed to have more than 10.000 island levels on it. If found that you are receiving payments from a disqualified player, we will make a per-case decision to see if your island still qualifies.

sooo.. i just thought about this. You guys will lose money because people on an island on istop can't buy mobcoin generators for their own island, or else they'd be over the 10k limit.
