This month our Purgatory server received a major update and has become its own gamemode! The Adventurer feature was redone to give players the full banned player experience, and there are now lots more trolls and quests. Additionally, Purgatory now features a new 1.18 world and the rules have become more relaxed. Have a look at this post for more information. Have fun!
We’ve added 3 maps to the event server’s Museum this month! Join the event server and take a look at these relics of Munchy’s past:

On March 1st the staff application season came to an end. Throughout the month our staff and gamemode managers have been reviewing the applications, and we’ve seen several new faces join the staff team! Best of luck to all the applicants next season. :)
Unfortunately that’s all the news for KitPvP this month however, the button below should make up for it.

This month, the first sneak peak for prison map 9 was finally released!
You can read the complete post explaining all the new features here.
Soooo… What do we know so far?
In the first sneak peak of map 9, we released four new key changes that will take place next map.
Prison is changing from version 1.8 to version 1.18
We know. You’re freaking out.
But don’t worry; let us explain.
We intend to stay true to the 1.8.9 combat style. One of the major reasons why map 9 has taken a long time is because we have been hard at work to keep the pvp as true to 1.8.9. This means we have created a completely custom coded pvp system so that we can continue to enjoy 1.8.9 pvp with all the perks of upgrading to a newer version.
This means we will still have 1.8.9 hit speed (with no long waits between hits), the same 1.8.9 knockback and criticals, same potion-based pvp and no shields or offhand. We have done countless testing sessions with some of the best pvpers on Munchy to ensure that the differences are next-to-none so Prison will still have the 1.8.9 pvp feel.
By upgrading to 1.18, we’ll be able to introduce a tonne of new plants, weapons, effects, particles, mobs and blocks that will open up new opportunities to add interesting items, rares, farming/mining/pvp/etc. This includes things such as tridents, crossbows, spectral, levitation, slow falling and new mobs!
New enchanted chests in the outside world
Chests that you loot in the outside world will have a 1/50 chance to become enchanted with a color! he colors will correspond to the following boosted chances:
Red: 100x Ultra Chance
Yellow: 100x Legendary Chance
Blue: 100x Special Chance
Pink: 100x Mythical Chance
More difficult mobs and new creature rares
Mobs will become much more difficult to fight and run from, but also be much more rewarding to kill. There will be a number of new custom mobs with custom abilities that will add a new challenge to the outside world.
As you kill mobs, they will occasionally drop creatures crates when they die. These crates can contain a number of rare items (such as ultra rares, high value logs, and the all new *creature rares).
*Creature Rares will be a new rarity that is only obtainable from creature crates.
Changes to how farming works
Next map’s farming will have almost entirely new crops/drugs.
Crack will be the highest-tier drug and will now grow AMETHYST CRYSTALS on amethyst blocks! It will have different abilities when consumed, like nearly all drugs, and spiked hash and spiked shrooms will no longer exist.
The old unrefined weed, unrefined pills and unrefined hash are all replaced with new crops.
When is it being released?
Unfortunately we must leave you with the dreaded word;
Map 9 has been in development for a long time and everything is almost complete.
The big question… What is the theme???
Here is a challenge for all of you who complete your daily wordles!
The theme is:
We also know that the theme does not contain the letters V or O.
Too many options.
With map 9 soon to be released, now is the time to grind to the top of the 8R leaderboards.
- The #1 Top Rank player will have a Legendary in Map 9 named after them.
- The #1 Ultras Looted player will have an Ultra Rare in Map 9 named after them.
Below is how the current Map 8R leaderboard stands:
#1 - Napkin0fVembz - (XVIII)(D1)
#2 - Chance1337 - (XVIII)(New)
#3 - PilarSage260320 - (XVII)(New)
#4 - liambgames - (XVI)(A3)
#5 - Joedaboss - (XV)(B1)
#1 - TSUTT_ - 2,245
#2 - liambgames - 1,338

#5 - LeanLoverLeaf - 733

Those who know me know I love mapart, and I think we can all agree that it’s one of the most appreciated forms of well, art, on Survival, and so I’d love to showcase all of your wonderful maparts! Each month, a mapart creator can send me maparts they’ve made within that month and they will be featured in the Mapart Hall of Fame!
If you wish to submit a mapart to be featured in the Mapart Hall of Fame, please send me a screenshot of the mapart on Discord @ fae#4984 !
Unfortunately, as this is a new section, I haven’t been able to gather any screenshots for this month, however I look forward to seeing all your beautiful creations in April’s Newsletter!
Well. Couldn’t have a newsletter without it could we have? This months quote comes from what some may say a Legend in the community. The feared, respected, cahrypt.
Yeah lets remove the “feared” part, shall we?
Will we ever figure out who Crypt is referring to in this image? Probably not. But alas, it is called out of context for a reason. Hmm.
For next month’s Newsletter, if you have any ~suspicious~ quotes from your friends in Survival during that month, send them to me on Discord @ fae#4984 !
With that, we sadly reach the end of the Survival section. Which is always the saddest part of the Newsletter, I know. But do not fear, for hopefully we shall be back with fresh content next month! That’s all folks! (Am I legally allowed to say that? Oh well)
It’s your favourite white-haired woman seducer, and I’m here to tell youu about what happened this month. There’s a lot to cover, so let’s get started
I love Beanep and Zeepog and Zeenep and Beapog and Peanep and Geezop and Neapeg and Peagoz and
Have you ever wanted to fight your friends? Have you ever wanted to fight all of your friends? Have you ever wanted to fight all of your friends while playing on a map that bricks your PC whenever your render distance rises above two chunks? Oh boy, you missed out.
All jokes aside, the Woolwars Free for All was an amazing competition that pushed every player to their limits. Congrats to @TonyMax for winning, as well as the four runner-ups! This event marks yet another stellar project from our two hosts, Geanep and Neepog. Or was that Peagen and Geezop or Beanoz and Zognep or Neabez and Geenop or
I love woolwars more than I love my infant son
Woolwars recently introduced a levelling system! The more you play, the more prestige you gain. Hitting milestones along the way rewards you with crates containing cosmetics! Speaking of cosmetics…
Woolwars is continuing to add more cosmetics! Suggest any ideas you have to Fumaz and BFI01, and make sure to report whatever bugs you find.
This definitely happened in March
Do you love sand? Do you want to see sand? Do you want to feel sand? Do you want to eat sand? If you answered yes to any of the above questions, too bad. Sand wars was last week, and is never coming back again.
