    Special thanks to @xxMineSheepxx for writing this month's news!

    [​IMG]

    New Cosmetics - style to CTF and War flag banners
    Thanks to our diligent developer, @redslime, we bring you new designs that you can purchase, in place of the plain colored design when carrying the flag. VIPs, MVPs, and ELITEs get free access to one banner each (VIP = 1, MVP = 2, ELITE = 3). Some of the banners can be simply unlocked in-game using tokens, others can be bought at our store. Check them out yourself in-game by doing /banners or via the cosmetic menu. More info here.

    Preliminary testing for Engineer2, Scout, and Pyro tweaks
    The CTF committee has been working hard to bring you new updates, a revamped class, AND an entirely new class. Check out this thread for more information, and make sure to catch the trailer that premiered on Sunday at 4pm EST. If you have any feedback for these new updates, make sure to input them here.

    Targeting Protocol
    A new protocol has been put in place that punishes people who target others, and has been effective since Sunday, March 24th 2019. As targeting ruins gameplay, hopefully this will encourage a less toxic environment. Punishment varies from gamemode to gamemode. For more information, see this thread.

    Media Team Applications
    Media team applications are open now! We are looking for content creators in videos, graphics, and more. You get ELITE plus a fancy MEDIA tag ingame, on the forums, and on discord. Interested? If you think you have what it takes, check out this thread and apply here.

    KitBrawl - New Backend and Bug Fixes
    KitBrawl is now on the new backend, running more smoothly than ever! However, you may notice that the gun FFA has been removed as it cannot be ported to the new backend (press F to pay respects). On the bright side, GApple duels' kit armor no longer have unbreaking on the first set.

    Friend Notifications are BACK
    Friend notifications that alert you whenever a friend logs in or joins a server are back, in case you want to stalk somebody. Feel free to turn them off in /prefs.

    Miscellaneous
    BUILD: Fixed minecraft updates. Leaves no longer decay, ice does not melt anymore, and blocks don't catch fire near lava. Farmland no longer destroyable, grass/mycelium no longer spreading.
    CTF: Stat tracking fixed.
    WAR: War Fun Sundays (WFS) now held biweekly, and one hour earlier. (2PM EST on Sundays)
    KITBRAWL: Ideas thread here.
    CTF/PARTY/WAR: The end of each game will automatically send you to another server.

    [​IMG]

    CTF Reverse Event
    Just as the name suggests, the flags are reversed! The blue flag will be on red side, and the red flag will be on blue side. Hope you don't get bogged down in confusion. Make sure to join in on the 14th of April at 3pm EST. More information in this thread.

    KitBrawl Last Man Standing Event
    Fight until you're the last man standing on the 21st of April at 2pm EST! Winner of each round wins one week of global ELITE! Sound simple enough? Sign up here, and find out more information here.

    Build Competition X: The 4 Elements
    Build competitions are now hosted quarterly, and the first one this year, is the 4 Elements! Earth, wind, fire, water, build the core of existence and this earth. Submissions are now accepted until May 1st. More information here.

    Featured Brawler
    The featured brawler of this month is someone who is very special to the Raid community, frequently contributing on the forums by voicing his own ideas in threads, and opinions in discussions. His doing so stirs up conversation in staff discussions, and have raised valid points, influencing the actions that may be happening next. Not only this, he makes ample contributions to the server by frequently purchasing on the store. Give it up for this month's featured brawler, @EinfacheSpur14! Congratulations, and thank you for all your contributions.

    If you'd like your opinions to be heard, feel free to post on the forums as well!

    Trivia Question
    Last month's question was: how many kills have there been in total on War 2.0?
    The answer is an astonishing 9,490,572. @thesquook answer was the closest, with 5.5 million kills, and earned a forums trophy!

    This month's question is: What is the total number of gamemodes Brawl has released?
    The answer will be revealed along with the winner in the next edition of The Brawl News.

    Not sure if SG and SG /w Guns are different from HG and fpsHG, but judging from the news of January 2017 (which had the same trivia questions as this one) I came to the conclusion that they are not the same.

    Also, I know I’m late :c

    Survival and Raid are apparently the same thing (altough idk if a name change ”makes” a new gamemode by their standards or not). You also listed Kitbrawl and KitBrawl, and idk if you did it on accident, or if you meant the original one and then the 2.0 version.

    Additionally, you forgot two pretty obvious gamemodes: War 2.0 and WarZ 2.0. You also missed one more that I’m not going to tell.
