    UPDATE - Season 3 now begins 11th March 1PM CET

    Hello Everyone!

    I know it’s been a long time since you’ve received news about updates but we can finally announce the next chapter of SkyMetro, Season 3!

    On Saturday 10th March 1PM EST we will start closing cities and officially start Season 3. All progress will be reset, including items purchased from the store (ranks and kits will remain). We have some long-awaited content coming with the new season, which we’ll get into shortly. Island Top winners will be announced on the day of the reset.

    The Nether

    We’re kicking off the new season with our biggest update ever. Citizens of SkyMetro have become too comfortable in their cities and need a new adventure. Players will now be able to travel to the Nether, which contains two automated events:
    • King of the Hill
    • Boss fights

    KoTH

    The KoTH gives players a new objective to fight for and is only available at specific times throughout the day. The first player to enter the KoTH arena will start capturing the hill, they will need to hold it for 5 minutes to win the KoTH. It is the job of other players to try their hardest you knock you out of the hill to reset the capture timer. If you manage to hold your enemies off for the 5 minutes required, you will earn a KoTH exclusive supply drop. You will be notified in the chat when KoTHs are starting or already underway.

    Boss fights

    Boss fights give players a new way to obtain loot. Bosses will spawn throughout the day and will take a lot of damage before going down. Killing bosses will drop exclusive supply drops depending on how many players are involved. Remember that PvP is enabled throughout the Nether so other players can kill you during the boss fight. Once the boss has died you will then need to fight for the supply drops if you want to take the rewards.

    Ore veins

    Like the current warzone, the Nether will have ore veins scattered around the map. However, these ore veins are enhanced, with double experience gained from mining blocks and the ability to mine cryptos.

    Levelling

    In Season 3 levels will be essential for progressing your island and as a player. Various server features will now require a specific level to be unlocked. Island expansions, computer generated blueprints and the crypto shop will have to be unlocked by reaching various levels. The vanilla tier of enchantments will be unlocked from the start, but to generate better enchantments you will need to level up. The initial levelling structure shouldn’t be too difficult, provided you put some time into completing challenges. We’ll monitor how players deal with this system and tweak it accordingly to ensure it’s challenging but not tedious.

    There will also be rewards for reaching certain levels, including various donator crates and an exclusive “Level” crate for reaching level 60.

    Marketplace

    We’re happy to announce the release of the long-awaited marketplace. Players will take part in auctions to gain temporary ownership of market stalls. Owning a stall allows you to set up a shop in which you can buy/sell items. They function similarly to chest shops, except these stalls are featured in spawn. There are a limited amount of stalls so you’ll have to out-bid other players for a chance to own a stall. Stall owners can also customize their shop with a custom title and description so you can appropriately advertise your products!

    Drop-ins


    Drop-ins give players more opportunities to PvP for awesome rewards. You can enter a drop-in with /pvp, which will teleport you to an arena to fight other players once the drop-in begins. Supply drops will fall during the drop-in and players who survive rounds with kills will be rewarded with bonus crypto shards. If you die or leave the drop-in you will not be able to return until the next round. Drop-ins and the other events listed will be the only way to obtain supply drops as they will no longer drop in the already existing warzone.

    Economy


    Our goal with the economy is to try and find a sweet spot between Season 1 and Season 2’s economy. This will include:
    • Making IG spawners viable
    • Lowering buy prices of some redstone items
    • Lowering buy prices of island expansions
    Final notes

    We hope you guys will enjoy these new features and will join us for the release of Season 3. We will have a new YouTuber livestreaming the release of Season 3 so you should be seeing some new faces around the server.

    We have decided to shut down the Golden city and Luck as we head in to Season 3, leaving just Crimson and Ivory. Purchases that carry over between seasons (ranks and kits) will be transferred to the Ivory city. However, you can make a purchase support thread and request your package on a different city, provided you come to us within the first two weeks of the season. Tax will be moved to Ivory, but the effects will be significantly reduced compared to the current tax percentages. Lucky blocks will be added to both remaining cities.

    Upon the release of Season 3, we will be adding a vote shop in which players can spend their vote currency. Instead of earning a vote crate, you will now earn a vote token, which you can spend however you like. You can purchase lots of lower tier crates or save up for a much bigger reward. This shop can be found next to the crypto shop. We will also be adding top voter rewards, meaning the top 5 voters each month will receive prizes.

    As most of you have already noticed, peraldon is no longer working for SkyMetro, meaning small and I have taken over his responsibilities. We’d like to thank him for all his contributions to SkyMetro.
