    New to Nexus? Read here: https://www.mineheroes.net/wiki/nexus/


    Official Launch
    Hey guys @McFluffinstein here to give you an update for our networks latest mini-game, Nexus. Since the first day of Beta (2 weeks ago), Nexus has surpassed our expectations in terms of player count, overall response and community dedication to help us resolve any bugs. We hope you are as excited as us for the future development of Nexus. If you are new to the game or have not played, read about it here and play a game using /server nexus anywhere on our network!


    Maps
    We have now introduced two new maps to Nexus - Canyon and Skylands. Both maps are strategically different, meaning some thinking is required to plan the best way to attack or defend.

    TIP: Try building a bridge in the sky using wood/cobblestone across to the enemy base then place a Transporter teleport pad. You will likely surprise your enemy as a wave of leather soldiers drop from the sky to attack their Nexus!

    TIP:
    Building paths across the canyons is a great way to reduce travel time to the enemy side of the map. Furthermore, tunneling is also a strong way to gain an advantage, as it allows you to bypass the enemy secretly into their territory.


    Classes
    As mentioned in the previous post, Classes are now all locked by default, meaning you're going to have to purchase them using gems grinded from playing our mini-games! You can view class prices and purchase a class using the /class command in a Nexus game. We have now introduced two new classes for you to enjoy, Lumberjack and Acrobat. You can read further about each class on the Nexus Wiki page.


    Map Submissions
    Since Nexus was first launched into Beta, we have had numerous questions asking if players submitting a map was possible. We are glad to announce that Nexus Map Submissions are now available and are being handled by @TeamFractal. To submit a map, please first read the rules and regulations posted by our build team.

    Nice updates Alex.
    *My philosophy says: When you merge The Bridge game with EggWars game, the result will be Nexus game.
    (Q) Do you agree with me?

    You need sheep...just random sheep walking around the map... :D (Or more passive mobs)...Then you could add a class that allows you to disguise yourself as a mob :p

    We check statistics when making a call like this. On peak time we average around ~30-40 1.7 clients connected. The other thousand or so are 1.8+. To get this gamemode to 1.7 would take alot of developer hours. In this case, Nexus will stay 1.8+.
