    Good morning the MineSuperior Community! It's been awhile since we've had our last newsletter, so I decided to wrap up all of the important changes in the last few weeks and organize them into the post you are reading today. Mainly focusing on recent updates to Towny Abyss, an update on the future of Factions, and what's been going on with game nights. Let's get into it.
    [​IMG]
    Starting with Towny Abyss, for anyone not aware already we have updated it to 1.15.2 which means that everything added in 1.14 all the way through 1.15.2 is now available on Towny Abyss for everyone to enjoy. This means new villages, a bunch of new types of villagers, bees, pandas, and more are now added to the server. To ensure people actually get to experience all the new content that was added, we've reset all of the resource worlds (Nether, The End, and the actual Resource World) as well as release a 1.15.2 themed crate that contains highly requested spawners and items from the community. For those curious as to what the 1.15.2 crate includes and looks like, here's a quick screenshot of it taken by @Pebbles.

    No other way to put it, one of the best crates we have done on Towny Abyss and will definitely be one of the more popular ones going forward. It'll be on the store for around a month for those wondering how much time they have to purchase one of these. Of course in the event you don't have cash to spare you can simply utilize any of the resource worlds as all of them have been reset as we updated to 1.15.2. Allowing you to be able to scavenge for bee hives, bees, and any village you might find along the way. As of the time we are writing this less than 25% of the resource world has been explored so there are still plenty of opportunities to find a bee hive.

    Going forward we of course aren't stopping here with just 1.15.2 support. We have plans to fully update Towny Abyss to 1.16 once we feel it's stable and optimized enough. Given 1.16 is just around the corner, launching on the 23rd of June, we will be able to give everyone a full roadmap very soon about how we plan to go about updating Towny Abyss to 1.16. That's all we got for Towny Abyss, now how about Factions?

    Factions is obviously resetting this weekend, however the upcoming season won't be the last one as we previously have stated. Recently the MineSuperior management team has decided to continue forward with Factions seasons as we feel it was a mistake to stop development of them given Mojang still has yet to present any meaningful changes to EULA enforcement. Given that our competition also seems to be keeping payouts on their own Factions servers, we once again feel it's the right choice to continue Factions as normal. This means the upcoming 13th season of Factions won't be the last season and everyone can rest easily knowing competitive MineSuperior Factions isn't going to disappear overnight.

    Speaking of which, let's talk about EOTW of the current season. That is happening 4 hours from now at 4PM EDT where we will log the final F-TOP leaderboard of the season and begin handing out payouts to the winners of this season of Factions. All missing payouts will be sent out before the launch of the next season to ensure everyone has a fair start and has access to all of their financial resources.

    Following the EOTW later today, the 13th season of Factions Mystic will be launching tomorrow, Saturday, at 3PM EDT for those curious. We will have a post out detailing the changes of the season before launch to ensure people are aware of the changes. So keep a lookout for that.

    We will be keeping this short given how long this newsletter already is. While we ultimately love game nights on MineSuperior, we feel currently we can't continue them given the crazy schedule of most of our staff and especially LT. So we are suspending them for the next two weeks to sort out the scheduling issues and to bring everyone new content such as Minigames (Bedwars, UHC, etc) that more people can enjoy.
