The holidays are here! The Grand Theft Minecart team would like to wish all of our players and staff a very Joyful Christmas and a Happy Holidays! Anyways, this recent Patch was focused around the Christmas Event. However, we also released the long-awaited Epic weapon's skin as well as added support for 1.15.x clients. OHH YEAH. And there might be something about a sale too . Keep reading to find out more! CHRISTMAS EVENT This event will run until December 31st 11:59:59pm EST. This year's Christmas Event much like our previous involves giant presents dropping around the map about every 1 hour. During this event, a boss bar will appear to players in the warzone pointing towards the location of the present drop. This present will explode dropping candy canes that players can collect to redeem exclusives in the Christmas Shop! Players can also start Santa Drops themselves by purchasing Nice Lists off of the GTM store. These Santa's Supply Drop will then throw out up to 25 "Candy Canes". More information in the below video! Tip: Log in every day for free candy canes! With this event come some Christmas related items. Talking of... CANDY CANE Candy canes are a rare item dropped by the Santa Supply Drops mentioned above. This item can be used as a currency in the Christmas Store. The Christmas Store is opened by right-clicking this item. Tip: Candy canes can be traded on the Black Market! SANTA'S NAUGHTY LIST The Santa's Naughty List is a rare item that can be used to set a bounty of candy canes on a specified player. Simply Right-clicking to use the item! On right-clicking the list, you will be asked to name the naughty you want to teach a lesson to. Upon confirmation, a bounty will be created and announced to the server! JK, I don't feel bad for him at all... muahahaha! When a player is targetted, they are marked as naughty and will leave a trail of Blaze Powder behind them. As mentioned in the above message, kill the target for a juicy reward of 5 candy canes. Those that use a naughty list will get an Event Tag called Naughty. Tip: Have some moron who you want to teach a lesson to? Buy a naughty list off our Store and add those motherfuckers to the naughty list! SANTA'S NICE LIST The Santa's Nice List will allow players to spawn a Santa Supply Drop at their current location. This is the same present drop that occurs hourly in the warzone, and all players will be notified and can show up to it. *These presents have been buffed this year just a little bit ... EVENT TAGS This year we have FIVE new colorful and festive event tags, which all will be purchasable in the Christmas Store (which again are accessed via Candy Canes). THE KRAMPUS TAG THE MISTLETOE TAG THE COALEATER TAG THE JOLLY TAG THE BLIZZARD TAG BLACK MARKET CHANGES When we introduced the Black Market, there was initial interest in the new feature but died after a day. We've made changes to it so it's worth for players to put up offers before they log off for the day. We've now reduced the tax on Black Market offers: - 8 hr offers reduced from $500/3% to $0/0%. - 16 hr offers reduced from $1000/5% to $500/1%. - 24 hr offers reduced from $1500/7% to $1000/1%. NEW CHEATCODE We wanted to buff the SUPREME rank a little bit, so we added the /bm command , allowing SUPREME players to access the Black Market in their house or at spawn. Those that really like to trade might want to take advantage of the new cheatcode. The Black Market cheatcode is available on our store at store.grandtheftmc.net! This cheatcode will also be available on the in-game Christmas Store that is accessible through Candy Canes. This cheatcode will allow players to use the /bm command in spawn and in houses. The Black Market cheatcode also unlocks ALL offer slots so you can trade as many as you can. Moreover, all Black Market offers will have a 0% tax rate for all durations. WEAPONS SKIN We've made some changes to Weapon Skins! We've finally added the EPIC skin set to all weapons! You can get EPIC weapon skins in SKIN CRATES located at spawn, or check out the Black Market in-game to see if another player is selling them. If you keep an eye out during the Christmas Event, you might find some EPIC skins in the /voteshop so make sure to vote regularly ! We decided to buff the reward chances for skins to the following: COMMON SKINS: 87.5% to 70%. RARE SKINS: 12.5% to 20%. EPIC SKINS: 10% MONTHLY REWARDS Monthly donor rewards will now start rotating to new rewards (like /voteshop). These can either be buffed or nerfed month-to-month but will likely have a theme associated with them! Talking of, this month's theme is... you guessed it, CHRISTMAS! This month's rewards are: VIP -> $50k Premium -> $100k Elite -> $75k and 3 Candy Canes Sponsor -> $50k and 5 Candy Canes Supreme -> $100k and 10 Candy Canes General Changes Other general changes we have made include: The increasing use of statistical analysis by logging reasons for deaths, warp locations, usages of weapons and etc with the intention of using this data going forward to determine patch buffs/nerfs. We've identified some of the lag issues and have taken measures to tackle the lag. ** We've started to add support for delayed messages, so the join message of GTM does not block important notifications. GTM has been updated to support 1.15 and 1.15.1 Gary the Anticheat has continued to receive updates providing patches to bypasses, false positives, and more! The anticheat has continued to become better at its job insuring fair gameplay for all players. SALE Where is the Christmas joy without a decent sale? Starting now, we have activated a global 20% discount on everything! Take advantage of this sale now at https://store.grandtheftmc.net/! The sale ends on January 4th at 11:59 PM EST.
