Hey, everyone!

My name is Gaurav, and I’m the new owner of PartyZone. I wanted to make this announcement to introduce myself, and to answer some questions that I’m sure you all have. I want to assure you all that I’m not just some random that has no idea what he’s doing -- I own another network, NemeGaming, which has been around for a few years now, and has been pretty successful. The management team from NemeGaming (myself included) will be working with the PartyZone team moving forward.

Now, to answer the most important question you all have: What’s happening to PartyZone? PartyZone is going to remain independent -- we have no plans to merge it with NemeGaming or any other network. All the staff will remain unless they wish to leave. We will also make no major changes to gameplay because we’re not dumb, and we are not trying to kill the network.

We will still be making improvements to the network, though. Here’s a list of the major improvements we look to make to the network in the near future:
  • Upgrade to a premium network blend to decrease latency for almost all players. This should especially help players from Europe, who have been connecting all the way to Chicago (and still stuck with it, you guys are awesome). We will be adding network points in the following locations:
    • Ashburn, Virginia
    • San Francisco, California
    • Frankfurt, Germany
    • London, UK
    • Sydney, Australia
  • Upgrade the backends -- we plan to upgrade the servers that run PartyZone to premium overclocked dedicated servers. This should help with reported issues of lag on creative (and ideally we won’t have to reboot Creative as often as we do)
  • Anti-Cheat -- at NemeGaming we’ve taken the time to develop a very sophisticated Anti-Cheat that we call “SARAH”. We will begin testing SARAH on PartyZone soon and make sure that she’s fine-tuned to her new environment before implementation....

▶ INTRODUCING OUR NEWEST GAME, SPLATTER!
Over the last few months we've been working somewhat secretly to bring you guys some awesome new content on the network. We're now proud to fully release our first full-sized game since Downgrade, Splatter!

Splatter is a fast pace, teams based, PvP game focused on painting the most blocks in the map with your teams color. You can, of course, sabotage the other team by splatting them all to death. There are plenty of different weapon packs to choose from, with more to be unlocked with coins! Whether you want to roll paint around the floor with the 'Painter' pack or shoot cute baby slimes that paint the floor in your color as they glide across the map with the 'Ambush' pack, I'm sure you'll enjoy them all.

This game also includes plenty of cosmetics such as hats, win effects and more which will all be able to get through the upcoming Goodie Bags (releasing soon). Be sure to check them out when they all release!

2 Splatter Maps released
The first two maps we're starting off with for this game consists of "Underpass" and "Copter" which are specially designed to be covered in the paint of your team. There'll be more maps to come in the future, but we think they're pretty cute!

The maps are flipped identically so there's no advantage to either team that spawns on the opposite sides, and filled with different routes to get around and paint the most blocks easier!
