The event server’s museum update is live! Players can now warp to the Museum world, where many memorable MunchyMC exclusive builds will be showcased such as old lobbies and Prison maps. Take a look at this post for more information, hope you all enjoy!

Valentines Day Spawn


A group of players, builders, and staff members came together earlier this month to remake our Event server’s Winter spawn into this beautiful Valentine’s Day themed map!


Staff Applications - Continued

Our first staff application season of the year has continued throughout February, as of March 1st they are now closed and the application review phase has begun. We have received a lot of applications this season, thank you all for showing interest in helping out our server and best of luck to the applicants! We look forward to seeing the new faces joining our staff team.

Applicant count: 139


Valentines Day Tags Update

This month we saw the return of the limited time Valentines Day tags in the store. Last year’s Colored Heart, Lovestruck, and Cutie tags have appeared again this year with the brand new BeMine, Kiss, and Cupid tags created by pillowplow, smeru, and infernalfae!

Along with that, we’ve started to retire some old and unpopular tags on the store. These tags will no longer be available to purchase but those who owned them already will always be able to use them in-game.


MunchyMC Championship

On Sunday the 27th of February the first ever MunchyMC Championship event was hosted on KitPvP and WoolWars! Players competed in a series of 8 events to earn rank prizes as well as the exclusive tag for the 1st place winner. Here are the results:

Have you ever wished that woolwars was more challenging? No? Well too bad, buddy. The challenge update has officially been released! Click the tnt block in your hotbar to enable them, and have fun trying to win the game while also EXPLODING EVERY TIME YOU JUMP OMG WHY DID THEY THINK THIS WAS A GOOD IDEA.

The update is still in its early stages, so make sure to report any bugs you find!

Omg mom look I'm 47th on the games leaderboard!!!

The woolwars lobby now has a dedicated island for displaying the leaderboard! Challenges also have their own place now, next to all of the regular stats. Season one has just begun, so make sure to drop in to lobby and check up on your positions!

Can I please work for Badboyhalo

No, you can’t. Staff applications have closed this past week, and the reviewing process has begun. All applications will be evaluated within a week, so keep an eye out for some new pink and purple names!

Amazing Newsletter!

2 Likes

cool guy

This newsletter has been an especially good one.
The reason I say this is because of the community art highlights, instead of just results from an art competition. I feel like many share my opinion when I say that artists are an incredibly talented and under-appreciated group of kind hearted friendly people, and I’d like to see more of these art highlights to showcase how amazing these people are. (Might’ve been the first time I’ve seen this but it’s really cool)

Besides that the newsletter was fairly standard in terms of comparison to the other ones, nothing too special.

However, this brings me to my point: I challenge the munchymc newsletter to make creative, groundbreaking reflections for each newsletter. Make this monthly event special, rather than just a commitment you have that you do last minute. (Not saying you do, just what it looks like) Maybe get the bug and idea team thinking, just blow everyone’s minds with something.

Please note: this is not meant to be hurtful criticism. This is me taking something and going: “Now make it better.” I am in no way attempting to be disrespectful, just voicing my opinion.

Now that I’ve gotten that out of the way, I want to laugh at “SombieBot1”’s humour

It’s interesting for you to bring that up, because it’s something I’ve been pondering recently as well. I think it might be helpful for me to share my experience as an editor.

When I write the newsletter, I use a style that reflects the gamemode I’m writing for. Woolwars is a chaotic, funny place, and so I try to mirror that environment when I compose the newsletter. From the kiss cam, to the emojis(:weary:), to the running joke of changing my name a tiny bit each edition, I try to capture the spirit of woolwars with my writing. I can’t speak for the other editors, but I do see similar attempts in the rest of the sections. Prison reflects its focus on grinding by including a snapshot of the leaderboard in its section. Likewise, survival showcases its friendly community with the out of context quote in each issue. The newsletter is more than a simple rehash of the month, and I think that’s something that all the editors understand.

That being said, there are still many constraints that make it difficult to reach such a high standard. For one, there’s the gamemode itself. As an editor, I can only cover as much content as I’m given. My two best newsletters in my opinion(August and December) both came after major gamemode updates that gave me lots to talk about. Conversely, my worse newsletters are usually during dry spells where little to no content is added. There’s also the time commitment. Would it surprise you to know that I spent five hours on this newsletter? I went through two different drafts, and at one point even fell asleep while typing. Keep in mind that I would consider this month’s edition to be the weakest section I’ve written so far. In no way am I complaining about the workload; it’s what I signed up for, and I definitely don’t help myself by procrastinating. I’m just trying to help illustrate that being an editor isn’t as simple as sitting down and recapping the events of the month.

The newsletter is a great opportunity for creativity, but it’s also important to recognize the constraints we work with.

(Usually when someone types three paragraphs it’s because they’re passionate about something or rebuking someone else. Rest assured I actually have very little emotional attachment to this, despite the length of my response)
