KitPvP saw the return of everyone’s favorite Halloween map made by @Hi_Im_Mikey, as well as the minor spooky update with ender chests spawning randomly around the map. While KitPvP has been quiet otherwise, we’re hoping the next few months bring some more substantiaal news.

Prison map 7 will be coming to an end shortly, so this month I asked all of the prison staff members some questions to reflect on the map!
Click on the questions to view their answers.
“What was your favourite rare item from map 7?”
“It’s really close between Santa Sack and Resurrection Stone, I like the convenience that the Santa Sack gives you, but also the Resurrection Stone has been underrated this whole map until late game and I don’t know why, it essentially guarantees you immunity outside.”
“Hands down has to be the Gemino Cursed Bow, being able to blast your friends or enemys more than 35 blocks has to be the best item.”
“My favorite rare item would definitely be either the Santa Sack or the Tom Riddle’s Pickaxe. Mostly the Tom Riddle’s Pickaxe because it was a unique mining mythical, compared to last map’s mining mythical which was just a fortune pick. The Santa Sack would be my second choice because it is really satisfying to loot with it.”
“The legendary fishing rod”
“my favorite item is the mafia bat because I like to hit people”
“My favorite item from map 7 is probably Newt Ankles”
“My favourite rare item from map 7 must be the Easter Egg! It allowed you to use it in slots every 4 hour giving you a high chance of getting an ultra and small chance of getting a legendary! And as if that was not enough you could collect a bunch of Easter Eggs and use all of them in the slots because they have a cooldown based on each individual item and not based on the player using them! This way it actually made sense to collect multiple of the same rare item which I think is great for game where collection plays such a big part as prison!”
“Fav rare was the draco hair”
“Would have to be the Phoenix Wings. It’s really fun to pick someone up and drop them; especially in prisonbreaks!”
“Pickpocket eyes, looking in cells is fun”
“Bellatrix boots take the cake this map. It’s just really fun to fly around the outside world on trolls.”
What was your favourite feature introduced in map 7?"
“My favorite (favourite for you CA/EU/AU lames) feature introduced in map 7 is easily the /stats command. I like being able to see my progression in chests looted, ultras/legendaries/mythicals found, and also just checking out other player’s progession.”
“Fishing. Fishing was a great way to just chill and relax, also yielding great rewards when you get to the higher levels. With the addition of dumbledore reels, fishing became the main way of making crazy amounts of money if you combo it with farming. Plus if you’re lucky enough with the donator crates you can get from fishing. you can make some serious money.”
“My favorite feature is probably being able to see the leaderboard in-game and the /stats outside system. I like being able to see the chests I’ve looted and how many rares I’ve found.”
“my favorite feature was the fishing. It is a very unique and easy way to make money and obtain items.”
“My favorite feature introduced in map 7 is fishing”
“My favourite feature introduced in map 7 was without doubt the fishing feature! I love the idea about fishing in minecraft and it finally makes sense to spend time fishing in prison! It also opens up for multiple ways of making your fortune which I think is very important so it is not all about mining and looting! I also think the farming feature does this which is why I also loved the addition of farms and farming to the prison!!”
“Fav feature was the reintroduction of prison break even though I never played a game of it, I loved watching the community play!”
“Definitely the new farming system. The process of obtaining higher tier drugs was much more enjoyable and rewarding than the farming system introduced in map 6 (where farming was effortless free money). I had loads of fun designing efficient farm cells to reap the most benefits from farming, and upgrading my farm based on new rares.”
“New farming system - The one last map eventually turned into just walking around a cell of cocoa beans and making bank, so I think making the system more dynamic with having to harvest different tiers of crops was an improvement.”
"Definitely prison break returning. I know it made it’s premier in map 4, but I think the new updated version is amazing and much better than it’s original. "
“What are you most excited about for map 8?”
“Of course not every new feature has been announced for map 8, but I’m definitely most excited for the start of the map. The start of the maps are always my favorite time when everyone is grinding their hardest to get the best items and become the richest on the server, and I like how competitive it is between rival gangs.”
“THE NEW THEME AND RAREAS”
“Looting. Very interested in how looting is going to function next map as its completely different to how map 7 worked! With the newly teased gang level system and the allied and enemies feature being teased I’m VERY excited to see what else is added and levelling up our gang!”
“I am most excited for the new prestige system that’s going to be introduced, and the theme :)”
“The new prestige points system!”
“I am excited to be able to start from scratch and build up my collection again.”
“I am most excited about hopefully more movement rares”
“I am always excited when a new map comes out but if I had to say just one thing then I really look forward to the new prestige system! Being able to choose the perks that fits you the best is definitely one of the best features introduced to prison in a while and I really look forward to hearing which perks people are choosing and how balanced they are!! Huge thanks to RedVelvet and Varmetek for making all of this possible! ”
“I am most excited to see our new JMod Saladbutter in action ”
“I’m looking forward to the fresh start from new, with everyone beginning at the same level again. The start of the map is always the most fun where everyone gets excited over ultras being found and figuring out what each item does!”
“The new features being added that I can’t talk about!”
“I’m extremely excited for a new looting feature that’s being added to this map. It’s something that’ll add a challenge to looting for even the most experienced of players, and those that master it will get heavily rewarded.”
There’s not long left until reset! Keep an eye out on the forums for new information about map 8.

Official MunchyMC WoolWars Events Server
Similar to the Survival Games discord server, we’ve decided to rebrand the WoolWars Clan Tournament discord server into the Official WoolWars Events Server!
This means that from now on, apart from event announcements on the forums, everything event-related will be handled in this discord server.
This discord server will serve as an easy way to connect between players and staff in the WoolWars community, talk about WoolWars related topics, announcing new events, advertise your own non-Munchy official events, and to find quick support regarding WoolWars events.
