    Hello everyone!

    We managed to squeeze in a few small updates this week in between working on our upcoming SkyBlock server mentioned a few weeks ago! Here's the quick overview:

    Summer Sale Update

    [​IMG]
    Our Summer sale is slated to end on July 24th! Be sure to show us your support and get in on the best deals this year on the Good Gaming Store.

    Summer Crate

    The Summer crate is now available for opening! As promised, Block Frames have double the chance of dropping across all of our SkyBlock servers, as well as Block Frames and World Anchors being available for the first time on SkyBlock2! Prison also has an added chance of receiving a boss key.

    ► Gem Splitter
    [​IMG]

    The Enchantress has received a nifty little feature update this week! Now you can hold a gem in your hand and split it into two halves, for no cost! i.e. Split an AutoSell 40 into two AutoSell 20 gems, or a Crit 11 into a Crit 5 and Crit 6 gem. This feature will make it easier to do things like maxing certain gems, breaking gems up for reselling, or even creating multiple un-rerolled gems from a single one! :)

    ► Other Updates

    We've also added a number of key performance/balance updates and bug fixes this week, to all servers. Here's a quick overview:
    • Reduction Caps

      Miner Reduction gems cap at level 750. This grants a total Miner reduction of 75%. With Gem effectiveness upgrades, Miner Reduction could surpass 100%, which was un-intuitive and far over-tuned.

      Max Miner Reduction after Gem Effectiveness upgrades: 99.99% -> 99%

      Please keep in mind this is only a temporary fix, and should only affect P160+. We will continue to work on ways to make the Miner Reduction gem work better with gem effectiveness.

    • Don't Smite Me

      Picks on Prison can no longer be enchanted with Smite (DAMAGE_UNDEAD), or any other enchant not listed in /enchants.

    • Sub chat (isn't) broke!?

      Staff chat and Sub Chat have been completely re-coded to resolve an issue with these features breaking, and then causing massive lag to the server. TPS should now feel much, much more consistent. Additionally, these chats should no longer experience breaking issues.

      As an additional side effect to this, please note that /dlink will be down for a few days, as we are reworking it as well. /link is expected to be fixed sometime after the SkyBlock seasons release.

    • Pls Fix TPS

      This week, we've made important changes to other key features across the network, like voting, particles, and Prison backpacks. These changes should alleviate issues with /tps lag across the board, and we should be seeing much more green in there!
    And that about covers everything for this week! As always, let us know what you think of these updates and any other suggestions you have for us. We all want GGMC to be the best it can be! <3

    I like the splitting gem. And especially the part that says the miner reduction change is tenporary and being worked on. Because now its way too low

    That is sooo unfair @Fluxty ! how are you gonna let these big players keep their Smite on the pick they have, but now we can even get it? they already get 2+ gems every damn boss, when I rarely get any and im usually the one who starts them when they get gems.. If we cant get smite on OUR picks, they should NOT be able to use smite also! Disable it completely

    I love the nerf on miners but I think they were nerfed a bit too hard. Good thing it's still being looked into. Mining could go down to 1 tick instead of 2 ticks or add it so AutoSell is able to sell more blocks per as via gems or add more levels in /ecoins. Other then that thank you for taking the time to get this update out! :D

    Don't worry! The Smite should still be removed from their pick, it just has not been removed from the lore.
