“The only literate tribe deserves the best in information and entertainment” January 17th, 2021

Today we packed together all the information gathered by our reporters: Espark, Druid, and Doom. After finishing their writing, they put the text into the hands of our editors, Espark and Dust. Once finished, they published this beautiful newspaper at ArcticFox’s website.

Polytopia News:

Polaris week By Espark

January 11th marked the start of the first ever Polaris week. In addition to the usual merch discounts, a full length version of the Polaris theme and a Polaris ringtone was released.

Current and former members of the Polaris tribe were pleased to finally get a spotlight on their tribe. Cade, a former tribe leader of Polaris, said, “We’ve been wanting a tribe week for a very long time and to be able to have one this year has been great. We are a very proud tribe and to finally let the square know it is rather nice.” Gaami of the High Council said, “Polaris week is the COOLest. It is so nICE that we are able to have an entire week. I love it! Polaris is so cool, and the new song and ringtone are fun! Also, Polaris Week ends on my birthday, making it all the better!” ChexxMixx, a former tribe leader of Polaris said, “I was pushing for a Polaris day back when I was a TL and now they have a whole week! It's a great step to getting special tribes the visibility they deserve and hopefully it will bring new players in.”

Others expressed concerns for the imbalance between the Polaris tribe week and other tribe celebrations. The twelve regular tribes each get a full month in the spotlight, typically with at least one server-wide contest or event. Daone asked, “How come Aqua only gets a day? It's a bit unfair.”

Last year, Polaris did not get a special tribe time and Aquarion got a single day. However, since Polaris got a full week, can we expect Aquarion and Elyrion to get an entire week later this year? A mod said that “Yes, definitely there will be week-long celebration [for the other special tribes.]” An admin concurred saying, “Elyrion and Aquarion will get weeks as well, unless something changes.”

Bedwars, new and improved By Espark and DoomGamerHam

After a day of maintenance, the PolyCraft bedwars minigame is back with new tribes, materials, fireballs, and more. The goal of the minigame remains the same - destroy your enemy's bed to prevent them from respawning when they are killed. Jusnip, one of the PolyCraft mods, explained, “It’s similar to hypixel (it’s an add on that literally tries to copy it), but you can now get new items. Starting items are different, you can get team upgrades, and there is a slightly changed money system.”

DeclearBear didn’t like the new version of bedwars. He said, “New bedwars is much worse. Axes are too cheap (12 gold for the best weapon in the game!?). Fireballs do too much damage (even though I just learned you can knock them back which is nice). Obsidian is annoying. You have to unlock the gold generator. Removed shields. Less bow variety. Tools are too expensive…”

However, Doom liked the bedwars update. “It's more balanced with more generators and different types of items for those generators. You can upgrade your protection to protection 4 and sharpness to sharpness 4. It's amazing. And fireball spamming is fun.”

In a recent PolyCraft voice chat, Zoythrus did mention they planned to make a new minigame, although no details or timeline was given.

Ai-Mo News:

by Druid and Espark Although it has been a rather uneventful week for the Ai-Mo. Still, there is good news to report.

Two new champion roles were awarded to Ai-Mo members. Mantis won the Concordance Day Contest 8 days ago and JackKuni (More commonly known as dragon or Ai-Mion dragon) has won 3rd place with 91 votes. Also, Ai-Mo had three submissions for the grand bazaar art contest. Ai-Mo is proud of our talented members.

In preparation for the Ai-Mo Tribe Moon, I ask that you rile up anyone you know from Ai-Mo who you haven't seen in awhile and to prepare some free time. We are planning many things for the coming month and would love to see everyone participate in game competitions and art events. If you have any ideas on events or other ways to celebrate February and the Ai-Mo Tribe Moon, let us know.
