Staff Member of the Month
I would like to remind all of you to submit suggestions as to who should be the next month’s nominee by sending me a dm. I will take all messages into consideration when choosing the next Staff Member of the Month! Take this as an opportunity to point out the people you think are underappreciated or did something remarkable recently. Thank you!
Now, let’s go into this month’s nomination!
To anyone involved with Munchy recently, our second pick for the Staff Member of the Month should come as no surprise. @DarkKnights22 has had a phenomenal start into 2021. He’s made improvements and pushed updates to virtually every individual server, as well as global changes both inside and outside of the game. He has quickly established himself as one of our best and most important developers and the amount he has been able to accomplish in just under 2 months is really astonishing. Keep it up, Dark!
A list of all the past Staff Members of the Month can be found here.

$50 Math Quiz
As a MunchyMC player, there are many things and items you may want to possess. But not all of us have the skill or time to pvp and grind ourselves to that stuff. And not all of you will be able or willing to spend a lot of money on the store. Therefore, we are hosting a math quiz this month and the winner will take home a buycraft reward worth roughly $50. Now before I scare you guys off with the math, let’s first get excited about the rewards!
The first person to reply with the correct answer and a sufficient explanation or calculation will receive one of the following prizes:
|60 swamp crates||30 winter crate keys||every kit||every kit||3 months of Legend|
Click here to see the quiz for a chance of winning!
- Post your answer to the quiz in the comments below. Give a short reasoning or calculation to back it up.
- Staff members are allowed and encouraged to participate.
- If you have an academic background in maths or a related subject, please give everyone else a chance first and do not participate right away.
- Newsletter editors, admins, and Smods may not participate in the quiz.
- You only have one attempt. Editing your response or submitting a second one will not be allowed. So be careful.
If no one manages to find the solution, I may update the post with a hint or two.

February was a big month for KitPvP! Season V was released, as well as new kits, a new map, and a clans season starting! For more information on each, I’ve hyperlinked below.
Written by Mikeal.
There have been sightings of a new villain around the prison, and his smile is not very pretty… You can now suit yourself up as the Joker with the new Joker set! Furthermore, there is now also a new mythical… Will you be lucky enough to find it? There are also two new ultra legendary upgrades; the Magneto Pickaxe and the Green Goblin Pickaxe!
The beloved prisonbreak is finally back! We have a whole new map called ‘Helicarrier’, a new deathmatch arena, and players can finally experiment with a whole bunch of items that they can’t quite properly get their hands on in the prison! The winner of prisonbreak will also receive 4 prisonbreak crates, which can give you a multitude of valuable prizes such as an ultra boost, mining boost, 5x donator crates, 5x epic tickets, 1x ultra legendary crate, mega event pass, event party pass and much more! So… when is it? Prisonbreak will occur on a daily schedule at 8am, 2pm and 8pm EST every single day! There will also be a quick prisonbreak at 5pm EST every day.
This month prison also got some new crates, and they’re called Swamp Crates! Dabble with your luck and try to pull some of the new special rares that are exclusive to swamp crates such as Shrek Ears, Crocodile Tail or Frog Feet!
As per usual, there were many item buffs and nerfs. You can view the full list of updates and item balancing by typing /changelog in game.

This month, Survival was filled with love! How’s so? Well let me tell you all about it!
I. Survival event
It is a well known, not subjective at all fact that survival is the best gamemode ever, so for all players the staff prepared a special surprise this month!
First of all, the spawn has been redecorated, only for this month, to suit the theme of February, Valentine’s day!
This special spawn update also brought us Cupid ! Paying her a visit with an empty slot in your inventory would grant you a rose, rose that you could then share with someone special!
You don’t have a valentine? It’s fine, this rose is a rose of friendship, so don’t be afraid to give it to someone you love, even as a friend!
Cupid and the spawn decorations were available only from the 14th to the 21th of February, but the roses are permanent! Best of all, they can be used as a decoration block if you place them of the ground, and the description to not disappear when you mine them back!
We hope you all enjoyed this Valentine’s event!
II. General Survival updates
This month also brought us an exciting update. A new command, available to everyone, that allows you to show off one of your item. Very useful if you want to discuss prices with someone, show a book before putting it in the auction, or just flexing your maxed items!
We all hope you like it, just keep in mind that there is two cooldowns associated with this command, one global cooldown of 1mn and a personal cooldown of 5mn!
a. [RESULTS] Skin competition
All the participants did an amazing job, but our big winners are QUEENRIM/Aetherim and igotchu!
- 1x Rainbow Rose Trophy
- 3x Winter Crate Keys
Congratulations to them!
b. [PENDING RESULTS] MapArt competition
The MapArt competition closed the 28th of February! The entries were all amazing, thank you everyone for participating. The results will be out in a few days!
IV. Survival quote of the month
Sometimes, the survival chat gets filled with funny quotes and gets overlooked… But not to everyone
So the survival quote of the month award goes to… @MiuThePufferfish !
But let’s admit it, pufferfishes do be a little tasty
This is it for survival folks, thank you for yet another amazing month in survival and I’ll see you all in game!
