Rainbow Road Venue
The Event Server is used for hosting network wide games and competitions. Events are similar to minigames. They are created and hosted by ManaCube staff rather than being an automated game. Events are free and winners typically receive prizes, such as in game titles. Prizes are not transferable, but if you have already have the title you may ask for it on another server. If you win a title in an event, you are still able to participate but can not win another title again in the same type of event for the rest of the week.
TIP: The recommended MineCraft version is 1.16.1 unless otherwise specified. Using other versions increases the risk of glitches and bugs.
Events are typically held twice a week: Saturday events take place at 2pm EST/EDT whilst Wednesday events at 9pm AEST/AEDT. Event times and dates can change due to server resets or other staffing obligations.
TIP: You can "follow" the #events channel and have event announcements sent directly to your own server.
Events are open to the entire server and most are held on our Event Server. Alerts are made in game when the Event server is about to open. Most events allow all who attend to participate; however, in some cases participation must be limited. When practical, most events have multiple rounds so that more than one person may win each weekend.
TIP: Don’t want to participate? Most events allow for spectators (

Staff reserve the right to disqualify players for past rule violations in-game, on the forums or on our community discord. Breaking event rules or abusing exploits during events will also result in disqualification. Disrupting events in any way may result in a temporary or permanent ban from the Event server. These bans may be appealed on the forums.
Contestants compete using bow and arrows to hit 4 targets of increasing difficulty. When all targets are hit, fireworks are lit to show who has finished. The winners are determined by who has the most arrows remaining after hitting all targets. Top finishers get the ArchEnemy title and are given a chance to make a difficult shot for a valued prize to be determined prior to each event. Participation is limited to the number of available archery lanes. However, multiple rounds are usually held, so stick around for more chances to enter.
Contestants are placed in “kitchens” and race to cook, craft or brew three items. The required items are written in a book. The book and all supplies are also provided either in chests or within the room itself. As each required item is crafted, place it in an item frame near the front of your booth. When all three items are crafted and in the item frames, press the FINISH button. Participation is limited to the number of available “kitchens”. However, multiple rounds are usually held, so stick around for more chances to enter.

Players fight to the finish in a snowy, multi-level, arena. Each player has a shovel to remove snow beneath their opponents while trying not to fall themselves.

If you aren't chosen for a round, stick around as multiple rounds are run each Event.

Members of the community discord have the chance to show their singing skills in this Karaoke show!
Contestants will have to sign up previous the start of the karaoke by displaying the song they are going to sing, as well as any additional help and specifying whether it is going to be solo, duo or groupal. Do not worry if you didn’t get to sign up in time, usually players that did not have time to do so have the opportunity to unmute themselves or mention that they want to sing!
The Events Team typically hosts seasonal events throughout the year. Fireworks displays, pictures with santa, pumpkin carving and other holiday themed events are held and often have special tags as prizes.
All of our events have started out as suggestions from staff or players and we are always interested in more ideas. If you have an idea for an event, submit it on the Ideas and Feedback section of the forums and contact an Events SrMod with a link. You may also contact any staff member. If your idea is implemented it will most likely take a while to prepare but you'll get credit provided it's a unique idea.
The eventful tag is most commonly given to staff who assist with events. Staff volunteer their time to design, build, test and host events. They are often not able to partake due to their staffing duties. The Eventful tag is given in appreciation of their efforts. Players may rarely earn the tag, most often for building an event venue.
