We hope you guys are enjoying the Christmas/Winter break with family, friends and MineHeroes! The following is a list of updates featuring current/ongoing events, recent alerts/news, implemented community suggestions and most importantly notable bug fixes and changes that everyone should be aware of. Christmas Gifts! It's Christmas! Santa and his helpers have dropped off presents around the hubs for you to find and un-wrap! There are a total of 12 presents for everyone to find so get your friends on skype or teamspeak and start hunting for EPIC treasure like the limited edition XMAS tag, particles, disguises, tokens and more! When you find a present you will be awarded HERO EXP and notified of how many presents are left to find. You can find the presents on any hub (you don't have to stay on 1 hub). Santa will retire on the 30th and sleep until next Christmas which means you might want to collect your presents before they vanish! Christmas Tournaments Earlier this month we announced a wave of new tournaments and contests for everyone to participate in. All tournaments have now ended and the results will be announced after ALL the winners receive their rewards. This may take a few days. You can learn more about this years Christmas Tournaments here Pets Pets are back! The pets are a global and lifetime perk but you can currently only apply them on CREATIVE, SKYBLOCK, SURVIVAL and PRISON. You will be able to use them on the Lobbies soon. You can get a pet by upgrading your rank, each rank receives the following pets: Manos - Chicken Pet Gyra - Ocelot Pet Hero - Slime Pet Elite - Slime + Horse Pet Titan - Slime + Horse + CaveSpider Pet Legend - Slime + Horse + CaveSpider + Blaze Pet Ultimate - Slime + Horse + CaveSpider + Blaze + Enderman Pet Or you can purchase Pet Bundles (multiple pets at once) from the store: store.mineheroes.net We have given ALL players access to a FREE /pet pig on the servers with pets enabled to try the new pet feature out. Gen Buckets on Factions & OPFactions Placing lava on a block will now automatically generate cobblestone walls for you with a single bucket of lava. Account Limits As you may have been aware, with the release of MineHeroes v3, we removed our alternate account rule. This means that the use of alternate accounts are not punishable. However, there is a limit. The current account limit per IP is 5 accounts. On your 6th account you will not be able to join. 5 alternate accounts is more than enough but if for any reason you wish to have more, please submit a ticket at www.mineherores.net/support explaining why. (For example: having more than 5 siblings, accessing MineHeroes from school/public environment etc) Changes and Bug Fixes Change-log entries are in date order from oldest to newest [Dec 12 - 25]: [Survival] Fixed door faction permissions not working properly [Survival] Fixed being able to unclaimall even if faction permission was denied [Global] Removed FFS from the chat filter [Survival] Increased pig, cow, chicken and sheep spawner price [SWARM] Has been retired for the time being.
