We're pleased to announce a huge update to Bedwars today!
Here's what's new:
Map selection updates: instead of selecting the map you wish to play on from the sign board, you will vote for a map when you hang out in the waiting lobby. Voting for maps is restricted to Voters (you can vote at ngmc.co/v) and VIP players.
In addition to solos and doubles, trios have been added! The more people in your team, the more fun the game becomes!
New custom waiting lobby: go and try your parkour skills while you wait
Generators in team matches: any player that is in the resource generator will now receive the items. No more hogging!
Fireballs! Purchase them from the shop for 40 iron and blow up your enemy's bridges
Traps: be notified when an opponent comes into your base
Heal pool upgrade: take a rest at your base when you're injured badly
In addition to these cool updates to Bedwars, we've also released other...
We've been pushing out many updates to the competitive and social aspect of the server recently! Today, we're excited to announce that another frequently suggested feature has been added - guilds!
Guilds may only be created by players with the Legend rank ($20 purchased from ngmc.co/store). Each guild may hold up to 50 players.
There is a competitive aspect to guilds - every time you win a game in Bedwars or SkyWars, you win 30 XP for your guild, in addition to 2 XP if you get 1-2 kills in that game, 5 XP if 3-5 kills and 10 XP if over 5 kills. Guild XP is separate to your individual player XP and level.
There are currently no rewards in which Guild XP can be used for, however a leaderboard on the stats engine will be released shortly and rewards will be introduced in the very near future, so stay tuned and start grinding to get a head start!
Other updates released around the network include:
We're excited to announce two big new updates to NetherGames today - the long-awaited friends feature and an update to leaderboards and stats!
You can utilise the new Friends feature in the Social Menu - the item in the 2nd last slot of your hotbar while you're in the lobby.
Currently there is a limit of 10 friends for unranked players, while Ultra players are able to add 15, Emerald 20 and Legend 50. You can purchase these VIP ranks on our store (ngmc.co/store)
With this new feature, you are able to easily check whether your friends are online, and if so, have the ability to invite them to your party without using the Party menu or transfer to their server directly so you can play together (if you're on a different region, you may have to request transfer twice). If they're offline, you'll be able to see what server they were last seen on.
To add friends, simply send them a friend request by using the Social Menu or hit them...
Are you an aspiring or veteran builder, or just average?
Whatever your expertise and experience level is, the NetherGamesBuild Team would love to offer you: (*)Volunteer builder position with

• comfortable workplace (no fuss, no rush)
• your preferred building hours and;
• helpful teammates
(*Provided that you pass the trainee builder phase+)
(+If you are accepted after the trial, you will either pass into the trainee builder phase or skip that and become an official NG builder right away, depending on the ratings given for your trial)
6 months ago, our tiers system was released. Upon releasing tiers, we warned that tiers would be reset at the end of the tier period (6 months). That time has now come!
All players have now been reset back to 0 credits. Due to an error with the tier reset processing system, lifetime tiers have not been set for those who have obtained them last season. More information about this matter is available in the #tiers-announcement channel on our Discord server and can be viewed by all players who previously claimed their tier rank on Discord.
Along with the reset, we have also made some changes as to how the tier system works. Credits are now issued to players at a flat rate per hour, with everyone receiving 5 credits every hour provided that they play 8 games within that hour (you must participate in a match). To clarify, playing on the Creative server does not count and you will not receive credits for building on your plot.
