ANNIVERSARY, NEW GAMES, AND HUB UPDATE -

Today is PartyZone's third year anniversary of our public release, and we have a lot of exciting new stuff to show you! First off, we'd like to thank every single community member and staff member, because without them we wouldn't be where we are today. As a small thank you we are doing an anniversary sale for 35% OFF EVERYTHING at http://store.mcpz.net, which is valid now through April 11. More exciting than a sale though, we have new content that we're excited to reveal that will be getting released today and over the next coming weeks!

∙ Redesign
PartyZone has been out for three years and hasn't seen any logo changes. We are definitely not the same network we were when we released three years ago, so we are releasing an all new logo to help show that. You'll be able to find our new logo on the forums, our store, and all of our social media pages, as well as in game in the server list!

∙ New server icon!

HUB ADDITIONS -

We've made multiple additions to the hub that allow us to better give you news and keep you up to date as well as a way to check up on your coins and network-wide stats. As well as adding bossbars and scoreboards, we've also made several additions to our hub map that you are able to explore right now at play.mcpz.net.


[​IMG]
∙ Hub boss-bars and scoreboard!
Stay updated with the boss-bar and track your data in the scoreboard.

∙ Smart Lobby Menu

Right click on the book in your inventory to select which lobby you would like to travel to and view which lobbies are most popular.

I have recently made some changes to Murder that I think you'll enjoy! These consist of:
  • New decreased Lobby waiting time
  • Added a scoreboard to the waiting Lobby displaying percentage chance of becoming a specific role in that game and also displays your statistics.
  • The server IP is now displayed in the sidebar, just in case you happen to forget.
  • You now get sent to a new game instead of the lobby when it restarts.
  • Spectators can now click the "New Game" redstone dust to bring them to a different Murder server instead of having to wait.
  • Your coins now have a shiny breakdown when you hover over them.
Want to see something else added? Suggest it here! Be sure to let me know what you think of these changes by responding to this thread.

Gigo's Christmas dinner has come to a close and we have found some great detectives from throughout the server! 187 different people have guessed BOTH of the murderers! We are so happy to have had so many people participate, but unfortunately only one of you could win. The winner of /warp havoc is.....

@JayTheBother
Make sure to congratulate her! Now, I'm sure you all are left wondering WHO the actual murderers are... Well, the murderous staff members, who have finally been caught and brought to justice by all of you amazing detectives are...
GamerGuts and SnowyKit/Asuyo!
@GamerGuts @Snuwy

Motives?

GamerGuts, as an original owner of PZ, wanted back her spot at the top. She decided she would sabotage Gigo's party to get back at him. She thought no one would suspect her because she's so popular, but she was wrong!

Asuyo, one of the quietest staff members, wanted to change that. After all of those years of silence and careful thinking, she came up with a plan and decided to work along with GamerGuts.

I wonder if they fooled any of you! They would've gotten away with it if it weren't for you meddling players! Thank you so much for playing, Sophie, I, and the rest of the Event Team are so happy that you guys took the time out of your Holiday season to come and participate in our event! Make...​

-Meanwhile at PartyZone's annual Christmas Party-
Staff members are disappearing left and right! It’s your job to find out which two crazy staff members are behind it all! It seems they have left behind clues- but wait! They may have given fake clues to throw you off! PartyZone's Christmas party is diving into complete chaos, and you’re the last hope we have! If the murderous staff members aren’t caught before the second week of January, then all will be lost and PartyZone as we know it will never be the same!

Log on to the Creative server and type /warp Havoc to search for clues.
The winners will be announced on January 7th.
Good luck to you all.

The next few days we will be working as hard as we can to find all the presents scattered about our lobby. Since you all have agreed to help us, we think we can get them all picked up by Friday (the 23rd) That gives us 7 days to get them all sorted into the right bags.

It'll be really easy, I promise.
