    Chaos - Season 2

    Greetings Everyone,

    Around two months ago, we launched Season 1 of Chaos, our final Skyblock aimed at providing a competitive environment for our players. Honestly, the release went a lot better than expected, with us hitting around 200 players on launch (We expected around 40), and constantly maintaining over 100 players throughout the season. Obviously, there were some ups and downs, especially when it came to gameplay mechanics and server performance. Throughout the season, we’ve worked hard to improve TPS and performance by a significant margin, and I’ve worked with staff behind the scenes to change the ruleset to fit the “competitive environment” that we’re aiming for.

    Season 2 of Chaos will release on:
    Saturday, July 27th at 3:00 PM ET

    Season 2 will last for a period of 5 weeks, with there being $3,250 in potential prizes this Season. The reason why we’re shortening the Season is to allow us to push changes that would normally require a full reset quicker than normal. Once we get to a point where we feel comfortable with Chaos’ performance, we’ll extend the season length and/or Island Top rewards.

    As for Season 1, the final payout will be on July 26th at 3:00 PM ET, with the server going down shortly after for us to switch to Season 2.

    ISLAND TOP REWARDS:
    #1 - $150 PayPal + $150 Buycraft GC
    #2 - $100 PayPal + $100 Buycraft GC
    #3 - $50 PayPal + $50 Buycraft GC
    #4 - $35 Buycraft GC
    #5 - $15 Buycraft GC​

    WHAT YOU WILL KEEP
    - Ranks (Purchased Ranks only)
    - Island Expansions

    SCAMMING + INSIDING
    Starting from Season 2 onwards, scamming and insiding will be allowed on Chaos. This change was made primarily to add to the competitive atmosphere of Chaos, as it adds more risk to the game, and makes it so that you now need to trust your own island members alongside all the other players on the server. The only exception to this is that we do not allow any scam pertaining to IRL deals.

    HOW WE VIEW ISLANDS
    Some of you guys have asked us how we view Islands, and the answer is that the owner of the Island is its sole representative. The Island Leader is responsible for all members on his/her island, and can be held responsible (or caught in the crossfire) in certain situations, such as a player using Schematica Printer and getting the entire island disqualified for the season. As for co-oped players, any sort of destruction/theft from the Island that the player is co-oped to will be considered griefing and theft, and punishments will be delivered as needed.

    CHANGELOG:
    • Reduced the maximum team size from 15 to 10
      • The new limit progression is: 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10
    • Added limitations to certain blocks on Islands (Susceptible to Change)
      • Observer Limit -> 50
      • Piston Limit -> 300
      • Sticky Piston Limit -> 100
      • Redstone Limit -> 1000
      • Redstone Torch Limit -> 200
      • Redstone Repeater Limit -> 150
      • Redstone Comparator Limit -> 20
    • Reduced sell prices for ores
    • Implemented v1 of Plutus
      • Added weekly lotteries to Chaos
        • There are two main pots for the lotteries, a regular one and a highroller pot. Each pot will have a different ticket price and a different cap for how many tickets one player can hold at once. At the end of the timer, winners will be auto-selected and prizes will be distributed accordingly (Though a % of the pot will be burned)
      • Added RPS to Chaos
        • Play the popular game “Rock, Paper, Scissors” against other players
      • Added CoinFlip to Chaos
        • Wager your chances on a 50/50 coin flip against other players
      • Added Connect 4 to Chaos
        • Wager your chances to win a Connect 4 game against other players.
    • Changed the rates of spawner progression
      • The exponential multipliers have been modified for both progression-dependent spawners and regular spawners
      • Skull drop rate has been changed to 15%
      • Reduced skull sell prices
      • Skull limits have changed
        • Mooshroom - 300 Zombie Skulls
        • Wolf - 625 Mooshroom Skulls
        • Guardian (FORMERLY OCELOT) - 1000 Wolf Skulls
        • Cave Spider - 2250 Guardian Skulls
        • Ocelot (FORMERLY GUARDIAN) - 3000 Cave Spider Skulls
        • Pigman (FORMERLY MAGMA CUBE) - 4250 Ocelot Skulls
        • Squid - 6000 Pigman Skulls
        • Blaze - 8000 Squid Skulls
        • Witch - 15000 Blaze Skulls
        • Magma Cube (FORMERLY PIGMAN) - 22500 Witch Skulls
        • Iron Golem - 35000 Magma Cube Skulls

    Please note that all of these changes are susceptible to change, and are not necessarily permanent. Additionally, please check the Skyblock Rules Page every now and then to check whether any sort of rule has been added, changed, or removed. Other than that, we hope that you all enjoy the season, and we hope to see you guys on release.

    Regards,
    Raj & Martijn

    I'd really love to see more building blocks in the shop. Snow, leaves, various endcity blocks, actual mob skulls that CAN be used in banner customization. An option to enable explosions in island's menu would be great aswell. I know it is supposed to be "competetive" but having few more blocks and decorations wouldn't hurt anyone.
