    Hello everyone!

    For a while, we've noticed that the majority of Build Battle players play using the latest Minecraft version (currently 1.14.4) so we decided to add support for these blocks into Solo Normal. There are over 50 new blocks added that can be used! Please note that this mode is in beta and not all newer blocks are supported currently, some blocks either add complex mechanics or are more problematic to implement at this time.

    Continue reading for more information!

    What about 1.8-1.13 players?
    Players using older versions can still play without any issues. If you join in an older Minecraft version you will be put in a game with other players also on an older version and you will be limited to all the blocks available in Minecraft 1.8 and older.

    Why only Solo Normal?
    Because this adds an extra layer to matchmaking we wanted to be sure everything works as expected first without any major issues. Once we are comfortable with the feature we'll look into expanding into other modes.

    What about the upcoming 1.15?
    When 1.15 releases players in that version will still be able to join and play with 1.9-1.14 blocks. As we monitor adoption we'll consider adding support for newer 1.15 blocks and change the requirement of the feature to match.

    Note: [Even though we have added support for blocks from Minecraft 1.9 up to 1.14 this does not mean we can support other features from these versions. This includes things such as dual-wielding, new mobs, new biomes etc. Implementing these would be a lot more work and a lot more changes to our core server which just wouldn't be easily possible to also maintain support for Minecraft 1.8.]
    We can't wait to see what creations you all make with all these new blocks! :D

    Good job, now it’s time to convert the whole server to 1.14!


    Edit: I like how people are giving this positive ratings as they haven't hit 100 posts yet, *sigh*

  5. Will blocks be replaced with similar looking blocks or just appear as air (for 1.8.8 clients when viewing 1.14.4 builds)?

    Edit: Before you quote the thread, yes I read it: I meant in private parties where 1.8.8 and 1.14.4 players are likely to be together.

    I like this compromise to implementing newer versions, and am pretty surprised you guys haven’t done this sooner. Hope to see this method used to bring things like elytras to other games in the future!

  14. It's a separate mode, people in 1.8 will be together with people in 1.8 and people in 1.14 will be playing with others in 1.14 so there is no unfair advantage there. :)

  20. Sounds like it's going to kill build battle (or at least make 1.8.8 players struggle to get games). Are parties supported?

    If so: will people in parties be able to see placed blocks?
