    Build January Update
    Aside from a quick Build Community Discord plug, *cough* https://discord.gg/YfggJm9 *cough*, the January Update brought several of the long-awaited new features on Test 28 to the 1.8 servers. (Builds 1 and 2).
    • /back will send you the map you were last on (also /lastmap)
    • /rollback reverts your map to the previous /save (or automatic upload that occurs when no one's on the map)
    • /elytra (only on the test server)
    Gui Changes
    • Modern glass pane borders (that someone complained about in staff chat)
    • Recently Visited Maps Gui (see all of the maps you spent like 5 seconds on)
    • Redesigned map options layout (good luck changing the map's time now)
    • New Options: chest locking, projectiles, block update prevention, and visitor interaction prevention
    • New Custom Terrains (thanks @xxMineSheepxx)
    New Entity Controls
    • Entity Manager Gui (tp to any entity or remove it)
    • Toggle Mob Spawning (read the next line)
    • Animals and Mobs (yeah, you don't need an admin to spawn in animals and mobs anymore!)
    And remember, ALL MAPS ARE KEPT AND SAVED, NO MAP WILL BE DELETED HERE: https://www.brawl.com/threads/77286/

    Now accepting Warz build submissions!
    Speaking of building things... Ever wonder why so many of WarZ's players have been on Build recently? Well... I really have no clue, but WarZ is accepting build submissions! Yep, that's right, for the low price of
    • Nether, hellish environments.
    • Military builds themed for snow environments.
    • Wild-west type builds.
    • Desert builds. (notably red sand desert)
    • City/towns, nothing insanely massive.
    • Industrial/factory themed builds.
    • Random detailed structures. (Planes in the air, boats, crates, debris, broken or misc. structures that can be added anywhere)
    (ye it was a stretch) you can play WarZ in your build, amazing! Read more about the new map coming to WarZ here: https://www.brawl.com/threads/77282/

    Hello, Raiders,
    Raid is out of Beta! After slightly discussing this in the previous news (https://www.brawl.com/threads/77126/) (yes, I just plugged a Brawl News, deal with it), we are pleased to bring you the full details of MCPVP Raid Map #1! Now we know the thread's out, but we here at The Brawl News wanted to bring you the most important updates from the reset thread: https://www.brawl.com/threads/77193/.
    • You can now run/build on top of the nether. (most important feature on this list)
    • The "shop-glitch" and 1.7 enchanting have been reintroduced. (also pretty important)
    • Ancient debris now drops a Netherrite ingot instead of an ancient debris block.
    • Netherrite crafting recipe has been changed, you now need the diamond equivalent in order to create a Netherrite piece - you still need a smithing table.
    • Notch-apples will function like they did in 1.8, and are now also craftable in the same way.
    • There's a new AFK-reward system - every hour you get a crate reward key, you need 12 crate keys to open a crate.
    • Shields and Kits were removed.
    • Gold, Phantom, Elytra, and Shulker spawning was removed.
    • The End Event has been removed, you can now build in the End instead. The End is now open for exploration.
    • Team points are now obtainable through events and daily challenges!
    • The KOTH will be in a new world, in order to enter the KOTH, you need to go through a portal at spawn.
    • There will no longer be any restrictions at KOTHs.
    • KOTH will now be using a points system, which will be displayed as a boss bar (instead of a scoreboard)
    • There will be two daily feasts, which spawn at random coordinates on the map.
    • There will be three new crates:
      • Playtime crate
      • Team challenges crate
      • KOTH/Weekly crate
    (tl;dr: Raid has new features!)
