Beyond The Bowl

Lets start off with the staff changes. There are no staff changes on Survival this week! However Skyblock had a busy week with 4 new trial mods. A huge welcome to KingGodfrey, xLocox, bearnecssity and Spleggie for joining and congratulations to TashaRashVest and Vandareth for passing their trial becoming ful-fledged moderators!

Remember, if you have the time and you think you got what it takes to help out our amazing community, you can go to the Staff Section on the Fruitservers page to apply for a position as a Moderator , Builder or Event Co-ordinator!

Good news for the more inventive players who like to frolick over on our creative server; More perks are being added! Not only that, we're looking into making some existing perks more worthwhile. To start with, the Armour Stand tools perk has been added which allows you to experiment with more customisable armour stands. We've also revisited the world edit brush perk and made it several times more useful - you'll need to read the description on the store for that one because there's a little too much to mention here! Players who have already purchased brushes will need to wait a little for us to update your existing perk as it is a time consuming process. More will be added to the creative store in coming days, get excited!

Dont forget to check out the store! There are new Rain trails, tears, warts (lolzzz), blood diamonds, gold and even a rain builder! Be sure to ask in chat if you need a preview from players who already have them. There are also some snazzy block trails from glass, flowers and even ores. These make a fun addition to the game! We also have a few new Disguises: shulker box. pictures, etc. You can ask Goldsta if he can show you a few as i am sure he would quite happy turn players into shulker boxes for you to see!!

Also Dont forget to take a look at the forums, which has recently undergone a  few new minor changes.

Regarding Pets, i have spoken with H1N9 and hopefully pets will be Sorted soon. Woohoo!!!


Events

Survival

This week we had a TnT Run and an Ice Boat Race. The TnT run on Wednesday had 6 Rounds. Gratz to QueerumLeghan, dababychicken, Lagoona, Pinto, Glacie and IRblu3z! There was one more winner (H1N9) but I'm yet to be pursuaded he didnt cheat!!! Friday was the Ice Boat race. What an amazing build this event is! Amazing job from the builders. This is my personal favorite by far! There were 5 rounds in total and the winners were Gingerbreed_man, Xiphias88, yarrum00, Naayilly and aussietacos. Hope you fruitloops didn't get too wet!

Skyblock

This week there were two events. A Trivia Quiz and a Musical Chairs event. Starting with the Trivia Quiz there were a few winners. Jadieee topped the leaderboard with three wins followed by Zazabwe and AlwxGPTB with two wins. Matrix360, Shruuub and justoon finish the list with one win each. Gratzz to you all! On Thursday we played a few cheeky rounds of musical chairs with many players doing the notorious walk of shame after losing, but gratz to wizard9802, topgearfreshy and crunch312 who managed to grab their chairs the quickest!

Don't forget to check out the Event calander for upcoming events!

Build Competition
Rejoice, we've decided to bring back the build competition for 2018! January's theme will be something a little simpler, we hope to receive dozens of entries! The theme we've chosen is mediterranean, an example image should give you an idea of what sort of build we're after if you're not so sure what it's about. Remember there won't be any prizes distributed unless we get at least 5 entries. 


Competition Rules
- Build must be finished by 31st January.
- Players are restricted to working individually.
- Build must be completed on the Creative Server.
- Do not build chestrooms, spawners, massive farms etc. We want creativity, not everyday things.
- Only one entry per individual.
- No pixel art!
- Keep redstone minimal if you must use it.
- Do NOT copy anyone else's builds, not even ones you find on Google images!
- Minimum 5 entries. There will be no winners announced if we don't get at least 5 entries!
- Builds need to be started and completed within the same month. You cannot use assets from previous entries.
- Completed entries that don't earn a top 3 place will net the builder a token on the server of their choice. 

Still plenty of time to enter, get those creative fluids going and get building.


Thats me done for another week, hope you all enjoy the  read. This is Captain Dank Signing out.

We'll start with the staff roster, Survival has two great new additions to the staff team with SimpleDF and Seadog joining our wonderful team, we wish them the best, and be sure to make them welcome and ask them any questions you have.  

Along with this we've got some great creative store stuff happening, here's the low down from Goldsta.

Good news for the more inventive players who like to frolick over on our creative server - more perks are being added! Not only that, we're looking into making some existing perks more worthwhile. To start with, the Armour Stand tools perk has been added which allows you to experiment with more customisable armour stands. We've also revisited the world edit brush perk and made it several times more useful - you'll need to read the description on the store for that one because there's a little too much to mention here! Players who have already purchased brushes will need to wait a little for us to update your existing perk as it is a time consuming process. More will be added to the creative store in coming days, get excited!

Along with this I also have some extra special news.  Not one, not two, but THREE events will be held weekly, with Wednesday and Friday being event days as per usual, but I will be hosting small mini-games on Sunday to help us all cool down and relax.  Our first one will be next Sunday, where we'll be playing family feud, so get those thinking caps on and game faces ready, I hope to see you there.  To keep you interested I will however give you a taste of what's to come.

Final point is staff positions are available as always.  We've got a lot of big things coming and a lot of players around and we're always in need of more of you. If you are willing to donate some time and have the skills, head on down to the staff page and apply!

As usual I have a little event chat.  This one is brief, in simple I'd love to give you the best events, more of the best events, new events to quench your thirst and so forth.  So I have a request from all of you.  It's when participating in events give any feedback, be it for the map, the running of the event or how much you like it, and please make it serious.  The other thing is a quick poll, comment your favourite event that we currently run, I'd love to see what everyone else's favourite events are.

Selfie of the Week

Not only is this a great way to share your love of fruit servers and to share your happenings with the community but it's a great way to earn a free token!  All you have to do is post your selfies in game into the forum thread for the chance to win!  This has to be my favourite way to win a token, and my favourite way to keep up to date with all your goofy stuff you do as I can't be everywhere at once :(

I think this one speaks for itself GOLDSTA


Congratulations to Cupid and Naneek_Mot, your tokens will be coming around shortly!  Keep sending in those selfies fruitsters!

On behalf of the staff I hope you had a wonderful Christmas holiday and we hope you are prepared for a great 2018.  We know we're gonna have the best year on fruit, and we want to pass that onto you and let's help each other out to create the best 2018 for all of us.  Cherish what we've got and improve on our 2017 experiences.  Yes I'm tired and I love you all fruitsters, keep on keeping on and big hugs from Bulk_llama.

2017 Recap

Goldsta COMMUNITY-Mo posted Jan 1, 18


Hello beautiful people, welcome to the much awaited yearly recap!
2017 has been our biggest year so far. It's been a year full of incredible milestones and unprecedented growth for our humble community. As usual, December happened to be our busiest month and there's loads for people to catch up on if they missed out on server shenanigans. Without any further ado, let's begin our little journey through the yearly recap! 


Fruitbowl News

FruitPrison Finally Announced
Only a few weeks ago we had the next addition to the Fruitservers Network announced, and it's safe to say everyone is pretty excited for it! FruitPrison is slated for release sometime in 2018, although I'm not really going to reveal a whole lot more than that. Not because I've been censored by anyone, I just don't want to spoil anything! 

Donations
Every month I tend to do a little spiel about how amazing everyone's support for the server has been since we seem to be regularly crushing our donation goals. This month is a little different though. If you'll look at the image below, you'll notice some really jaw-dropping figures. This has been by far the most successful month Fruitservers has ever experienced, with survival accumulating nearly $8000 in donations and skyblock accumulating $2000. Needless to say, we are so incredibly grateful for everyone's support and it just means we'll get to see exciting new things much sooner than expected. Thank you Fruitsters. 



Fruitmas Competition 
Santa decided to drop by Fruitservers for a couple of weeks this month and following tradition, everyone had to feed the big-bellied man a bunch of special recipes in exchange for nifty little goodies! The players with the most points on survival and skyblock would earn themselves a Razer Ornata Chroma Membrane Mechanical Gaming Keyboard. Great effort from everyone and congratulations to these winners! 



Voting Competition
Reminder to everyone that votes are tallied up for the post a few hours before the end of the month so sneaking in a couple of votes right at the end may not help. Thanks to everyone for voting as often as possible, and congratulations to these winners who've nabbed a voucher for themselves! (The votes had to be tallied up earlier than normal so we had time to prepare for other things throughout the night).




Build Competition
Rejoice, we've decided to bring back the build competition for 2018! January's theme will be something a little simpler, we hope to receive dozens of entries! The theme we've chosen is mediterranean, an example image should give you an idea of what sort of build we're after if you're not so sure what it's about. Remember there won't be any prizes distributed unless we get at least 5 entries.

Top Players

FruitServers is an amazing community because of the people that are a part of it. Every month one player and one staff memberfrom both Survival and Skyblock are selected and acknowledged for their contribution to the server, whether it be ingame or behind the scenes.


Player of the month Survival - Sleepy_Ninja. A player who represents everything Fruitservers is about; friendliness, approachability, and is always keen to tackle whatever events we host. Sleepy_Ninja also showed maturity and understanding during a time when many others chose to complain and rant, this did not go unnoticed. Well earned Sleepy_Ninja. 


Staff of the month Survival - Survival Team! Looking back at how incredible this year has been, it's only fitting to acknowledge the entire team for their efforts throughout each and every month. This isn't just a shoutout to the veterans who stuck by the entire time, it's also recognizing the newer staff who joined and gave their role everything they had. Team, you've been stellar this year. Thank you! 


Player of the month Skyblock - spleggeti. Another player who embodies what our beautiful server is about, spleggeti's generosity towards others is being acknowledged this month. Spleggeti's kindness is something other players should aim to replicate, well done spleggeti!


Staff of the month Skyblock - WittyQuip & lilshortyrae. Skyblock's christmas events simply would not have run as smoothly as they did without the steadfast presence of these two. Their dedication and support throughout 2017 earns them a shoutout in the biggest monthly post of the year. Thank you Witty and Rae! 


Survival and Skyblock are lucky to have such strong moderating and build teams, however we are always accepting applications for both of these roles. Mister Bulk_Bogan happens to look quite lonely being the sole member of the Event-Coordination team so if you'd like to help alleviate some of his burden, consider looking into his role. Think you have what it takes to join one of these fantastic teams? Submit an application at www.fruitservers.net/staff

As mentioned last month we always look forward to hearing feedback from you guys about possible improvements. If you have ideas, please share them with us either through the website, in-game, or via discord. We want to know what you think! 

Finally, we're going to end this post a little differently. I want you to leave a comment describing your favourite memory from Fruitservers in 2017. Who knows, you might even get a little reward for taking the time to share your memories! 


Thank you for joining Fruitservers in our journey through 2017.

Fruitservers wishes you a stellar 2018, happy new year fruitsters!
