Hello Internet peoples!

The last competition for the factions spawn build went so well that im thinking it would be a great idea to do more things where im giving out prizes and getting the whole community are more involved in things. City life V4 will be coming this summer (still a while away yet) and right now im not sure where to go with it. Im not sure if it would be good to make it more realistic, or make it less realistic but more user friendly. This gave me the idea for this post.

I would like to get ideas from the community for things to add/change for City Life V4. Please post your ideas in this forum:

Any ideas that we do use will receive a reward so please feel free to post anything that you think would be a great add-on.

As a community we should be proud of City Life. It is such a unuqie and original game mode, founded by Blockdrop and has been a success for much of Blockdrops life. Lets make V4 even better!

Im looking forward to hearing your ideas!

Hello Internet!

As you may know, we had a build competition so that the community could get their chance to submit their ideas for the factions spawn. I know building is a lot of work, it takes so much time so I didn't expect more than 2 or 3 people to apply. I was wrong.

A lot of people applied, with a lot of really good builds. The original offer was for a $50 prize for the winner but I wanna make that a bigger prize, because I feel like I want to show more support and appreciation for our community and the effort that people put into it so I am going to add runner up prizes. So the new prizes are:

1st place: $50
2nd place: $25
3rd place: $10
Everyone who did a (full and complete) build submission: A crate key

The problem is that I have a tie between 1st and 2nd place. It is between Baycruse119 and .蛸焼Earl_. So please both of you, could you add me on discord and send me the world file for the maps. I think the way to decide the winner from those 2 is to actually go on the builds and see them from a MC perspective.

3rd place is KeihinFCB so please pm me to let me know what you would like as your $10 prize. Anyone else who submitted a build please pm me to let me know which server you would like your crate key on!

Thank you to everyone that submitted builds and thank you to everyone that plays Blockdrop and supports our great community!

Summer updates will be coming extremely soon and I can't wait to have our 5th busy and fun summer. I am excited to see how everyone likes the new updates and just wanna thank everyone for being such an amazing community. What makes a great server is not the plugins or features, the main thing that effects gamleplace are the other players. That is why it is the community that makes Blockdrop great. The way that you all are, so friendly and you make the games so fun. That is what makes new people want to stay and that is what is helping Blockdrop be 1 of the longest lasting Minecraft servers ever!

Hello Blockdrop!

Its updates time and sadly I must start on a negative note. Some of you may notice that the staff manager (Im not naming names) has been demoted. The reason for this is that a staff member in Skyblock was abusing his role and was getting away with it because he was friends with the staff manager. Obviously this is not acceptable so they have both been removed. I am 100% against staff abuse and take it very seriously. My main responsibility when hiring staff is to make sure they treat you fairly and with respect.

The good news is that I have a few ideas for a new staff manager who will create a more friendly staff team and I will be releasing info and updates on this soon.

Another important thing to update you on is that the mini games (Skywars, Bedwars and Eggwars) are now all changed to allow pvp hacks. The reason for this is that it is impossible to have staff checking every single arena in all the mini games so in the interest of fairness, we will allow anyone to use pvp hacks on these mini games and this will free up staff time to focus more on removing hacks from the other game modes. To be clear, all other game modes are NOT allowing hacks.


For the new factions spawn (Don't worry its not resetting yet) we decided, instead of getting a professional builder that it might be more fun to have a competition. We decided to hold a competition to see who can build the best factions spawn. The winning spawn build will be used on the live server and the builder will receive $50 (you can have the money either in Paypal or as credit on the donation store).

The only requirements are that it has a layout similar to how it is now (with the pvp arena joined and the shop underneath etc) but obviously a different theme. The sizes do have to be specific. It needs to be the same footprint size as the current one (96X64 blocks with the pvp arena part 32X32 blocks)

Once you have build it. Please take screenshots (you can upload them to and post the pictures in this forum:

A winner will be drawn on the 1st June. I am so excited to everyones builds! If you see a build that you like then please comment on that post as peoples opinions on the post will make a difference when deciding the winner!

Good look!

Thanks for reading and thanks for playing!
