    I'm sure the question in everyone's mind right now is what can Ryguy do as SMOD that he can't do as DEV why was their no news last month? Well, there's the straight answer the the long, official answer. So here's the long, official answer:
    If you're not bored enough to read that, we're going bimonthly to not make the news as repetitive and to make our lives easier.

    McPvP's Raid Updates
    Raid's beta map has been out for two months now and the official release and reset is coming shortly!
    Other than that, in August a bunch of changes were posted, like these:
    -XP Bottles have been disabled/removed.
    -You can now apply mending to your items again.
    -You can no longer breed villagers.
    -You can no longer use iron trackers in the nether (if you have an existing tracker in the nether, please DM me on discord (Leon#9397) and I'll get it moved into the overworld).
    -Youtuber mode (/yt) now hides your tracker coordinates when you do /track
    -Bug fixes, for a full list, join the discord.
    Learn how to build the three new trackers here: https://www.brawl.com/threads/76793/

    Kitbrawl update
    Roughly the same time as the Raid update, Kitbrawl received another overhaul, featuring WarZ guns, pasta, map rotations, kit customization, and more! If you ever want to practice WarZ fighting, head on over. See the picture, of the new map, that Yair stole from me here: https://www.brawl.com/threads/76789/

    Badlion Client Restricions
    Brawl has recently announced that if a player is suspected (that means there's some proof) of using a Ghost Client, they will be restricted. Being restricted means they may only login to Brawl if they are using the Badlion Client. Players who are autobanned 15 times in the period of 1 month will also receive this restriction. Learn more about getting yourself restricted here: https://www.brawl.com/threads/76820/

    Build Update
    This October, Build will see, arguably, its biggest update ever! Live features include the toolbox, inventory saving, map rollbacks, new nether and end maps, playmode, and a much more. Learn why you can't get away with griefing here: https://www.brawl.com/threads/76768/

    The October update promises 1.16, entity control, a ton of new options, that ginormous new lobby, amongst other fun features!

    Summer Draft Tournament Winners
    We here at The Brawl News would like to formally congratulate Choowie Force on their victory in the 2020 Summer Draft Tournament! If you missed the big game, and are out of football games to watch, have a look here:
    For those of you looking for more competitive CTF action, subscribe to the CMS YouTube channel, because there's something never seen before coming to competitive CTF, that we're not supposed to talk about.

    CTF Map Wave XVII
    Since map testing concluded on October 2nd, Wave XVII is pretty close!!!
    Ok, fine, the testing thread's here: https://www.brawl.com/threads/76887/

    Articles.png
    We here at the Brawl News want to highlight all of our big community contributors and content creators. We are looking to showcase everything from game ideas to videos to resource packs to memes! If you made something cool, PM it to Charlie_0014 so it can be featured next edition!

    MeDiC wEbS FaVoRiTiSm
    The greatest ongoing challenge in the CTF community is the balance of classes. See, in a perfect world, all of the classes would be completely balanced, so that MMR would not be necessary. In the past update, the use of abilities in spawn was disabled (that's why you see ninja's leaving spawn like everyone else), except for one. This crude ignorance of disabling medic webbing while in spawn has given medics a luxury that no other class has, and it needs to be removed, so we can continue down the progressive path to balance. I would like to thank @Zarpin for pointing out this uncalled for favoritism. Rant more here: https://www.brawl.com/threads/76856/

    Salmon Creek
    With the CTF map way right around the corner, we'd like to showcase one of the exceptional CTF maps that will be entering the new rotation. This Beaver Creek re-skin features a extraordinary waterfall, heavily detailed fortresses, and beautiful cliffs! Salmon Creek I will be in the next map wave and at /map 368417.

    Some shameless self promotion by yours truly.​

    Trivia Question
    Last edition's question was: How many posts have been made in the Brawl Staff Discord in 2020 (January 1st through August 1st)?
    The answer is 286,578. @crowmeme was the closest and earned a forums trophy!

    This edition's question is: How many bans were appealed since the last Brawl News (August 1st through October 1st)?
    The answer will be revealed along with the winner in the next edition of The Brawl News.

    New Event Cycle
    The Brawl News would like to introduce a brand-new event cycle, featuring a different event every edition! Some events you can expect to see in the future are caption contests, in-game and forum scavenger hunts, name the map, and best screenshots!

    Scavenger Hunt
    This month, you must brave the desert heat of the CTF lobby in search of a rare emerald block! But this is no ordinary emerald; this emerald block is stamped with the random signature :V
    [​IMG]
    To win the 2 months Global Elite prize, you must comment with a screenshot of the block, with coordinates in the screenshot (hit f3 before taking it).
    The winner will be awarded in the next edition of The Brawl News.

    Comment Giveaway
    Every edition of Brawl News now comes with the chance to win a month of global ELITE. To enter, just leave any kind of comment below. The winner will be announced in the next edition.

    Last edition's winner: @oofmonein, Congratulations!

    Due to our shop no longer supporting store-specific money, we are moving away from shop coupons, and giving out ranks to our top voters and reporters. Winners can expect a PM from me by next weekend.
    Top Reporters
    Here are the players who submitted the most valid rule breaker reports.
    August 2020
    Due to a system feature that we didn't previously know about, the August Top Reports were not retrievable. If you believe you qualify, please PM me.

    September 2020

    • Third: @shahariko (6 valid reports) - 7 day gamemode-specific Elite, 14 day gamemode-specific MVP, or 30 day gamemode-specific VIP!
