To start off, we’d like to apologize to everyone for the late notice on canceling Minecraft Monday this week. Tonya and I were experiencing one of those days we’ve been occasionally wrapped up in for the last several months and we really needed to prepare for the next morning. The good news is, the next morning went reasonably well. There’s potentially more coming in the next month, and I don’t want to jinx us, but it appears to be getting close to some sort of resolution. Our fingers are crossed anyway.
To make up for it, we’d like to mix things up a bit and have this week’s stream tomorrow night; same Bat-time, same Bat-channel. If you can’t make it, we totally understand, and maybe there are some folks who normally can’t attend who will be able to this week, so let’s give it a shot and see what shakes out.
New Akumoticon Birthday Plan
Two Mondays ago we launched our first week of the Zelda Birthday Gift Donation Twitch Emoji System GO! which had some hiccups since I hadn’t realized that the Akumo emoticon was only available for subscribers. We amended this to include any emoticon posted in the stream instead, but I wanted to offer a new angle that will help boost our final donation to Akumo’s sweet little lady.
So the new plan is this: Any player that posts any emoticon in the Twitch chat during any Minecraft stream (including tomorrow’s) will effectively be donating $1. This is limited to players on the whitelist only, and only once per stream (same as before). However, if you are subscribed to our channel on Twitch, and you use the Akumo emoticon, we will up the amount donated to $5.
Hopefully we see you there tomorrow night!
Patreon Pledges Processed Presently
I like illiteration.
Just a friendly reminder that Saturday is the last day that you can update your Patreon pledge if you need to. Tonya and I will be taking care of rewards on Sunday and Monday, provided the hurricane doesn’t knock our power out. So be on the lookout for those, I’ll make a post in the Facebook group when they’re in.
Another update we’ll be making to Patreon is we’ll be adding FlightPlus access to the Silver Tier. The flight time costs will remain the same, but access to the plugin itself will be limited to patrons on this tier. The reason for this is merely one of practicality and costs. Access to untethered flight means more people traveling quickly over long distances (which impacts the server) and loading more chunks (which we try to mitigate for obvious reasons) so it’s honestly an issue that needs to be addressed before it scales up beyond our control. If it’s any consolation, pledging to the Silver Tier affords you a good amount of points on SomeAwesome.com which you can then convert to SAMCoin that lends to more time you can purchase through FlightPlus.
And I mean hey, write a review for the site and you can earn up to 5000 points per review ?
Every other year or so around my birthday I like to throw up the alt server and have a good old few rounds of DefenderCraft. If you’ve never been privy to a DefenderCraft event, here’s a video of the shenanigans we get up to during a typical go.
Since my birthday falls right between the days of the week we normally have events on anyway, it seemed appropriate to schedule it that way again. So we’ll be looking at doing DefenderCraft on both Saturday the 7th of September around 3pm EST as well as Monday night, September 9th at 9:30pm EST. We will stream both events and yes, the emoticon donation system will also be in effect on the 7th too.
If you’re interested, fill out the form below and sign up for a date for DefenderCraft. As per usual, if you’re on Awesome Tier, you are free to attend both events if you’d like.
- We’ll be doing an update on Spigot and plugin versions Saturday night
- Command of the Week Sunday night will be TreeFeller
- Coming Soon: Use command zone to purchase flight ability on your land
- I’m too sexy for my shirt, too sexy for my shirt, so sexy it hurts
