Cake Wars is a minigame that was released to Mineplex on November 9, 2017. The main goal is to eat the other team's cake and be the last team alive. Cake Wars Standard is played with four teams of four players, Cake wars Duos is played with eight teams of two players.

Goal Edit

The goal is to eat the other team's cakes and eliminate enemies to win.

Gameplay Edit

16 players split up into 4 teams (or 2 players over 8 teams in duos) spawn on a floating island. Each of them has a spawner which generates Bricks, Emeralds and Nether Stars. These resources are used to buy items at the 3 villager shops. At the start of the game, the generator only produces Bricks, with the teams having to capture and hold different beacons (working similarly to the Control Points in Dominate) to generate Emeralds and Nether Stars. There are 4 Emerald Beacons on the right and left sides of each team's spawn island (or in duos, between Red and Green, Cyan and Orange, Pink and Blue, and Yellow and Purple islands). In the center of the map, there is a larger island with one Nether Star Beacon. After some time, smaller so-called cake islands will start spawning which contain loot. After they have been looted, they slowly disappear. The goal is to eat the enemies' cakes to make them unable to respawn and then eliminate any remaining members. Cakes also rot after 20 minutes to force the game into a final "deathmatch" phase. You win if you are a member of the last team standing.

Shop Edit

There are 3 villagers that trade various helpful items for their respective currencies. First is the Brick Shop, where players can purchase commonly used items as well as Emeralds for Bricks. Second is Emerald Shop which sells better, but more expensive items in exchange for emeralds. The final store is the Nether Star shop, sometimes referred to as the "team shop," because it sells upgrades that give the entire team a boost in the form of permanent potion effects or enchantments on tools.
