40th Kings of Spun & Spunland Updates...

Spun Salutations dear reader! Uncle Spun here to avail you of all the latest Spunland news and herald our latest Kings of Spun; Imhokh (EU) and SoulReaver_444 (NA) the 40th Mighty Monarchs of Spunland! All Hail!

Warning! We have just jumped into Spunland to check that everything is tickety-boo and it turns out that it is not quite... There seems to be a crash caused if you visit the Shop Maze, 'Inspect' an item, then leave the Shop - you will find yourself in an unspun empty Spunland. Uncle Spun will look into this as soon as possible, in the meantime avoid inspecting items in the shop - note this means that you will be unable to use the shop bonus until fixed. Big Spun apologies! Anyway...

Today sees the release of new Spunland Commerce in the form of the Spunland Rocket LMO, and the Uncle Spun Head - a full body suit modelled on one's very own spuntastic visage - it even has it's own Uncle Spun animation! For those with a nose for bargains, peruse these details of the 2 new Spunland Mega Bundles, one of which even includes The Spunland Cottage! Finally we have some substantially spun updates to Spunland and the Spunland Cottage, for ease of use one will simply list:

  1. The Hopper Kill Bonus. Once a player reaches the Spun Point threshold of 2500 Spun Points the Hopper Kill Bonus will become active. This takes the form of a Spun Imp which bounces above your head tracking the position of The Spun Hopper. Should you get close enough to the Hopper the Imp will become agitated and eventually spring forth to kill the Hopper earning you the Spun Points indicated on the HUD. If you avoid the Hopper and score another 2500 points the Imp will respawn in another Spun colour worth more points... Note, the Imp will never attack the Hopper whilst you have the Spun Crown, also no one but you will see your Imp and only your local Hopper will be attacked by it (for now).
  2. The Spunflowers should hopefully always die during a Spun Storm at last. If they don't Uncle Spun will be most displeased, but would appreciate if you could let us know if you spot any further unspun floral problems...
  3. Whilst in Underspun the Lumino will now be able to continue to illuminate Spun during Spun Storms. I'm sure you don't need Uncle Spun to tell you that this means Underspun should yield you considerably more points than before.
  4. Three new rewards have been added to Spunland; the Spun Balls companion and 2 Spunner Posters...
  5. 6 Collectable Spunner posters. If you manage to collect all 6 of these posters you will receive an illuminating reward the next time you enter The Spunland Cottage. As #4 above two of the Posters can be purchased as rewards in Spunland, a couple are in the Spunland cottage, one is 'event' based (for the time being) and another is hmm really quite... hidden. Uncle Spun will say no more for now, and would be spuntastically pleased if anyone who manages to find them all would send us a missive via facebook, twitter, the forums or by email. Perhaps we will create a special spun certificate for any such intrepid treasure hunters who communicate their success to us! Please avoid spoilers if you do so!
  6. 3 more Picture Hooks have been added to the Spunland Cottage to take it to the maximum number (15 - sorry smokingpistol this seems to be the measly maximum!)
And so to the Coronations. Spunland EU was a little quieter than usual, perhaps as we had changed the time to 9pm BST, which is where we will keep it unless we face objections (it was moved simply by request). The prettily named PixiePirate laid the first claim to the crown as the Spun Storm raged, then lost out to MAXMALO. Nena__bcn became Harvest King on the passing of the storm, her first of many regal forays, indeed not only did she hold the Spun Crown for longer than any other but Uncle Spun was sure she would win the day. MAXMALO snatched the crown from Nena__bcn then lost it to the mighty sam_reynolds01 in his customary Spunling Ghost costume, a costume also worn by another of our 40th coronation contenders; JohnPlayer67. lola_25 managed a brief stint in a contest otherwise dominated by MAXMALO and Nena__bcn, but none seemed prepared for Imhokh's successful gambit in the final minutes sweeping him to victory on 20,355 Spun Points - winning him a justly earned Spuno'ween Crown! Special mention must be made of CoubiaK on his orange Spunland Hopper who reminded Uncle Spun how linguistically retarded he frequently feels in Europe with just one language in his Spun Head.

Spunland NA was significantly busier than its EU sibling and the contest seemed to beat out a singular rhythm; SuperMacho69 took the Spun Crown first to lose it to q7u7tool, then took it back to lose it once more to q7u7tool before managing to regain possession before the first harvest! The_Wiz_1 became our first Harvest King but not for long as the ever attentive SuperMacho69 swept in once more and kept claim for the remainder of that Spun Cycle. Following the second harvest the competitive beat of the first returned, this time between dxkills16 and SuperMacho69, reclaim followed claim up until the third harvest when it seemed that dxkills16 had best SuperMacho69 and dominated until the sudden challenge of SoulReaver_444 left her standing. The clarion call of the contest's end struck with the final Spun Harvest - Uncle Spun has never seen so many gathered around the Spun Pipe in eager anticipation of the Spun Crown's spawning. A flurry of names flashed above the pipe before SoulReaver_444 settled the contest on a spuntastic 43,180 Spun Points! All Hail!

Next week the 41st Coronation will take place on Tuesday the 5th of August. Spunland EU: 9-9.30pm BST, Spunland NA: 4-4.30pm PDT/7-7.30pm EDT. Until then stay Spun!

p.s. In August Spuno'ween will fall on Sundays...
