1. Hey guys, just wanted to make a thread updating you all on the progress of introducing the new pregame system to the network. Many of you have been wondering when x game will be moved over to the new pregame system, so this thread will let you know exactly which modes use the new system, and will update you when new modes are added to the system.

    You can read more about what exactly the new pregame system is HERE in the update thread for UHC.

    I will be updating this thread when we introduce more games to the new system, so look out for when I update the thread! :)

    Modes which are using the new pregame system:

    • UHC ✓ All modes
    • SkyWars ✓ Mega Doubles
    • Duels ✓ Tournament Modes
    • TNT Games ✓ All Modes
    • Build Battle ✓ Pro and Guess the Build
    • Arcade ✓ All Modes excluding Zombies
    • Classic Games ✓ All Modes
    • SkyClash ✓ All Modes
    • Blitz ✓ All Modes
    • Mega Walls ✓ Standard and Faceoff
    • Cops vs Crims ✓ TDM and Defusal
    • Crazy Walls ✓ All Modes
    • Warlords ✓ All Modes
    • Speed UHC ✓ All Modes
    • Smash Heroes
    This list will be updated as we implement the new pregame changes into more modes.

    Recent Updates:

    INFO: Update UHC to new pregame system
    The goal is to help the UHC modes have a more consistent player count and help the modes that have trouble starting at off peak times to start with less players, as oppose to not start at all.

    Improve lobby announcements
    To improve the flow of players for the lobby to games utilizing the new pregame system, we have updated how we alert the lobbies of games which are starting soon by sending more useful announcements, e.g. when the game is going to start in x seconds, or if the game is currently available to join and filling up.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    INFO: Update Mega Walls to the new pregame system
    To improve how often games start and how many players the game starts with on average, we have updated Mega Walls to the new pregame system. From the data of using the new system for 1000 games, Mega Walls now starts with on average 70 player, up from 60, and on average games start every 7 minutes. In the 1000 games which have used the new pregame system, only 2% of games have failed to start.

  3. I've noticed duels and I really like it so far. The idea is really amazing and allows for games to fill up quicker, so thank you. Looking forward to more games c:

    Bedwars not on the list. Bedwars fans are outraged their game isn't getting more attention.
