Today i am excited to bring you big news of the long awaited Skyblock reset and update.
Skyblock Sonic was originally added at the start of the Coronavirus pandemic when most countries went onto lockdown and the player-count increased. It was intended as a temporary game mode to help create more space for players during this lockdown. As the player count seems to have settled now, i think today would be a good time to announce that both Skyblock Sonic and Astra will merge together to create 1 Skyblock. The new Skyblock will use the ranks/economy etc from Astra but with some extras from Sonic (Like island upgrades). We think that this will be a great combination, brining the best of both worlds and bringing once split friend groups back together in 1 main Skyblock server.
As you may know already, both game modes have closed now in order for us to prepare. Everything will completely reset (apart from paid ranks obviously as these are for life) and the opening day...
Today I am proud to announce the Youtuber outreach programme.
Youtube is a great way for communities to grow and I think that having a network of Youtube creators making content for Blockdrop will be a positive and community orientated direction for us to take.
To apply, you do not need thousands of subscribers. I think that a large network of smaller content creators would benefit everyone in the server. The players would be able to have quicker and better access to tips, tricks and gameplay in an easy to digest video format and Youtube creators will have a great way to help grow their channel on a server that is much bigger than most that would be willing to work with smaller creators.
So what does it take to apply? Well, we do have some requirements.
At least 500 views.
Only Blockdrop videos on your channel (you can have other content, just not other MC servers for obvious reasons)
Your video titles contain Blockdrop name/ip/domains
