The UrbanMC Olympics are starting in less than a week and we’re kicking off the Olympics with the Opening Ceremony. We invite all members of the community to attend, with towns and nations interested in attending to comment down below their town name/nation name. ProfessorUtonium and EmmyChewy will be going around this week collecting all the banners of participating towns and nations so if you haven’t made one yet, make sure to start coming up with a design so you can cheer on with your town/nation spirit!
And of course, here are the dates of all the events:
This week, some shop changes, which you probably already know about:
Netherstars can no longer be sold. This is going to be temporary while we determine a new sell price.
Gunpowder can now be bought and sold at the Dungeon Master.
Prismarine crystals' and shards' buy prices have been halved.
Also, we're tentatively planning for some downtime tomorrow during the day while we update to 1.15. This may change, but we're hoping to be operational again before the evening rush. Your patience is appreciated.
This week, 3 events have been announced. In order of scheduled date(s):
Hyperion Open PvP Tournament - Sat. Feb. 15, @ 8:00PM EST
Strike PvP Event - Sat. Feb. 22
2020 UrbanMC Olympics - Various dates in March.
Development continues on 1.15, most notably with exploring the idea of altering some of the world's biomes and possibly adding some more structures. This is still in early testing and its success is as of yet uncertain.
What is a global event which is broadcasted all over the world, bringing thousands of competitors every four years with countries cheering on their competitors as they race to victory? Is it the World Cup? Is it the Asia Games? Is it the Commonwealth Game? Nope, it is the Olympics!
Welcome to the 2020 UrbanMC Olympics, an event aimed at uniting the server in a series of sporting events in celebration of the 2020 Summer Olympic Games in Tokyo. The UrbanMC Olympics will be held throughout the month of March, allowing everyone to have the opportunity to participate in at least one event.
Individual towns will be allowed to enter the Olympics, representing their nations as they challenge each other to bring home the Gold, Silver and Bronze. Every nation will be allowed to enter 4 towns PER EVENT to ensure there is a chance for every nation/town to bring home a medal. Are you a part of a town who is not part of a nation? Do not fear! You will be instead representing your own...
February is a month of passion - be it for love, or in the case of UrbanMC, bitter fights to the death. On February 22nd, we will welcome you to the first Strike PvP tournament. In Strike PvP, there are five different PvP categories that you will have to be ready to play in.
The Five Categories to be Used in the First Event
This category is your normal PvP set. You will walk in with full god gear, god sword (with optional Knockback 2), god bow (or optional Crossbow), One fire resistance potion, three strength splash, three speed splash, and the rest as instant health. This requires potion management and normal combat.
Iron PvP requires aiming, survival, and outthinking your opponent. You walk into the arena with ONLY Iron Armor, an Iron Sword, Iron Axe, and 3 Gold Apples.
Debuff PvP is the same gear as Pot PvP except you will also receive splash potions of weakness, slowness, and poison...
