Vacation Condos Mean There’s a New Destination Munzee in Town!

Planning on taking any trips? Luckily there is a new place for you to book your stay! Our latest Destination Munzee is here to offer available rooms to players, so please welcome the Vacation Condo Munzee to the map today at 10:00 MHQ time! You can pick up the Vacation Condo Munzee from the Freeze Tag Online Store for $5 each. There is NO limit on purchase quantity per player. We’ve also removed the monthly limits on resort purchases as of now. You can shop the entire Destination Collection HERE!

The Vacation Condo Munzee will be joining the Motel, Hotel, virtual Resort, and Timeshare as the latest Destination Munzee.  For those that don’t know, in the US and Canada a condominium (condo for short) is an independently sellable living space that is otherwise similar to an apartment building. The difference is condominiums can be leased for shorter terms and are often used as vacation or rental properties. Like its predecessors, the virtual Vacation Condo will be a more complex Munzee type that offers the benefits of multiple munzees in one location without additional stickers by allowing players to “rent” out available “rooms.” Ready to hear about the Vacation Condo details?

Vacation Condo Details

The virtual item will appear as coral colored (above left) for the primary icon and mint colored (above right) for the room icon. This new Munzee type is like a mix of the Timeshare Munzee and Virtual Resort Munzee. This virtual features 5 rooms, so the first 5 players to cap the Vacation Condo get a room deployed*. Here’s the kicker though, rooms only stay deployed for 30 days.

At the end of 30 days the rented room is archived and a new room is then available for the first player to cap the Vacation Condo. This new room will be available for any player, including the person who just had their room archived, which means after 30 days you can recap to earn another room! This becomes an endless capping and deploying option as you travel, or within your hometown.

Proximity: A Vacation Condo must be at least 2,500 feet (762 meters) away from any other Vacation Condos and 500 feet (152.4 meters) away from Virtual Resort Munzees.

Rooms: There are 5 rooms available in the Vacation Condo. After 30 days a rented room will be archived and a new room will become available.

Deploy: 100 points, 10 points for room owner

Capture Radius: 500 feet (same as Resort), not blastable

Capture: 40 points, then 20 points per room rented (a full condo = 140 points)

CapOn: 80 points for Vacation Condo owner, 40 points per owner of a room.

Please keep in mind that the Vacation Condo must be deployed in-app and you must be at the location you want it to be deployed. It cannot be deployed online. To access the Vacation Condo, turn on your “Virtual – Destination” filter or select the “Premium – All Vacant Rooms” filter. For more information on how to deploy a Vacation Condo (or Virtual Resort), you can check out our Help Guide article

Destination Points Updates

The launch of the Vacation Condo today at 10:00 MHQ time also corresponds with a point update for ALL physical Destination Munzees! The point values for the Motel, Hotel, and Timeshare will all be doubled, while the points for virtual Resorts will remain the same. If you’re interested in earning these new deploy points, don’t forget about the SWAP feature on your OLD motels and hotels! That means tons of Clan Wars points for swapping, since this creates a NEW deploy!

The points for Motels will now be updated as follows:

  • Capture: 20 points per Motel, 20 points per room
  • CapOn for the owner: 10 points per room filled + 10 points for Motel, 100 points if full
  • CapOn for room owner: 50 – 10 depending on which room is owned. Here is some detailed math if you are interested. ((# of rooms filled + 1) – (room number)) x 10
  • Deploy: Motel 100 points, Room- 50 points

The points for Hotels will now be updated as follows:

  • Capture: 40 points per Hotel, 16 points per room
  • CapOn for the owner: 10 points per room filled + 10 points for Hotel, 150 points if full
  • CapOn for room owner: 100 – 10 depending on which room is owned. Here is some detailed math if you are interested. ((# of rooms filled + 1) – (room number)) x 10
  • Deploy: Hotel 150 points, Room- 100 points

The points for Timeshares will now be updated as follows:

  • Capture: 50 points for Timeshare, 25 points per room
  • CapOn: 100 points for Timeshare owner, 40 points for the owner of a room
  • Deploy: Timeshare 100 points, 10 deploy points for room owner when a room is deployed

The points for Resorts will remain the same: 

  • Capture: 15 points per Resort, 5 points per room — Total ranges from 15 points (no rooms filled yet) to 90 (all 15 rooms filled)
  • CapOn for the owner: 3 points per room filled + 3 points for Resort, 50 points if full
  • CapOn for room owner: 45 – 3 depending on which room is owned. Here is some detailed math if you are interested. ((# of rooms filled + 1) – (room number)) x 3
  • Deploy: 50 points

Badges

Lastly, the Vacation Condo Munzees will have their own line of badges that will be added to the Destination Munzee category. You will be able to earn badges for both capture and deploy for a total of 6 new badges! The first badge in both the capture and deploy lines will appear as follows:

Destination Designs

Once you have your Destination booked, you’ve got to travel in style! We have a new line of Personal Tags and Custom Luggage Tags featuring the different Destination Munzee types. You can find these in the Freeze Tag Online Store as well, but quantities are limited! Please note that the luggage tags do not come with a personal code on them, but instead feature your name and address. These details will be pulled directly from your shipping address in the order details.

Ready to rent some rooms or book your next 30 day stay? We’re so excited to see where everyone starts deploying their new Vacation Condos. A big thank you for helping grow the map in new and unique ways!

Munzee on!

*Please note that the advanced deploy circles on the website are not currently available for the Vacation Condo, but will be soon. We appreciate your patience.

Announcing Survey Results and Selected Winners!

Last month we released a poll requesting player feedback, and we’re happy to report that the responses were plentiful! Today we’re going to share some of the general consensuses gathered from the survey, as well as announce the participating survey players who were randomly selected to receive prizes. A big thank you goes out to everyone who took the time to send us your feedback in an effort to make Munzee the best player experience as possible! We’re excited to share with you what fellow players had to say about gameplay!

Survey Winners

Before we get into the survey feedback, let’s first announce the winners! Though players were able to submit the survey anonymously, those who entered their usernames were all submitted to a randomized prize drawing. We’re happy to announce that the following 10 players were all randomly selected to be awarded 2 Virtuals, 2 virtual colors, 1 virtual Joystick, and 1 Blast Cap! The lucky winners are:

  • ACCLanMan
  • gingercurlz
  • janzattic
  • jurikvandspol
  • madewell
  • OldSchoolSkater
  • SolWalk74
  • ufrie
  • xCrooksy
  • TX_Diva

Congratulations to these 10 players for being randomly selected! Your prizes have been added to your accounts!

Survey Feedback

The results are in! While we won’t be revealing all of our player feedback for the sake of brevity, we are excited to share several key things we learned from player responses. Due to a very large sample size, the following results have terrific projectability and a very low margin of error of only 1-2%. That means we are thrilled to place a confidence level of 95% on the following results.

Favorite Part of Gameplay

We asked players to reveal their favorite part of Munzee gameplay, and it turns out that the majority of players (66.6%) prefer both physical and virtual gameplay equally, striking a comfortable balance. 21.3% of players preferred strictly virtual play, while only 12.1% enjoyed just physical play. It appears that many players enjoy mastering the many aspects of Munzee. 

Rate of Release 

With different munzees released at a fairly consistent rate, we decided to see if players were overwhelmed or underwhelmed by any release rates.  It turns out that players reported the rate of release being “just right” for new Munzee Owned Bouncers (52.69%), Player Owned Bouncers (48.66%), and permanent Munzee types (54.03%). These statistics reveal that the majority of players are quite pleased with current gameplay release rates. 

Biggest Benefit of Munzee 

Here at Munzee, we’re all about playing your way, which led us to ask a very important question that yielded some pleasant results: what do you think is the biggest benefit of playing Munzee? Turns out that the most players enjoy keeping active (45.3%), followed by exploring new areas (27.6%), collecting different game pieces (10.3%), and meeting new people/players (9.7%).

Thanks again to all players who took the time to respond to the survey and provide feedback! We love hearing your ideas, suggestions, and feedback. We’ll keep all of these results in mind for future expansion and releases! 

Munzee on!

Munzee Toolkit Munzday: Slunicko

One of the best parts about Munzee is that you can play how you want. Everyone goes about playing a bit differently, and that leads to some very creative and innovative uses of objects. From containers to bags to maintenance, we always encounter something new when we meet players. We want to showcase your Munzee Toolkits to see how you play the game and possibly even inspire other players who may need help! This week’s featured Munzee Toolkit comes from Slunicko!

Today’s featured Munzee Toolkit is brought to us by international player Slunicko! A Munzee player for nearing 4 years, Slunicko has amassed over 11 million points thanks to her Munzee strategies. And when it comes to packing her toolkit, this frequently traveling player is all about keeping things light and easy, proving that quality over quantity is all you need sometimes!

Slunicko Toolkit

This is my Munzee Toolkit. My munzee name is Slunicko, which means “sunshine” in Czech language. My civil name is Gina, and besides Munzeeing I am an international hospital planner.

I travel light through the whole world a lot. This means my travel kit must be light, ultralight. For my world travels, I use only a small plastic bag filled with generics, situated in the case of my phone (see below).  

The rest of my munzee resources are packed in the travel vanity bag I got from Air France (already searching for smaller, more colorful one🤣). It contains, besides all types of munzee stickers (sorted in small plastic bags again), a mini lamp (sometimes my phone rejects this function) and scissors (I even got them free for traveling from Vienna to Grenaa with my hand luggage from friendly customs).

However, I prefer cutting all I might need before travels, and the generics I order are peel-off, so there’s really no need for scissors. The majority of my munzees are credits nowadays anyhow. 

Munzee on!

Share Your Kit!

If you have a Munzee Toolkit that you’d like to show off, you can email us at iloveyou@munzee.com with the subject “Munzee Toolkit.” Make sure to include:

  • Your username and where you are from.
  • A few high quality photos.
  • A list of what each item is and how you use it.
  • What made you decide to use those items.
  • Any other relevant details.

Please feel free to include as much information about your gameplay as you wish to share! We want to see your creativity and learn how you play, so show us what you’ve got! And for Munzee tips and tricks, you can always check out our Help Guide articles!

A big Munzee thank you to Slunicko for sharing her Munzee Toolkit!

Munzee on!

MedZEEval Times Recap! Looking Back at MHQ Bash 2019

It’s officially been 2 weeks since players joined us for the start of MedZEEval Times weekend, and we’re still basking in the social success of MHQ Bash  6! Whether you’re already ready to take a trip down memory lane for this medieval-themed weekend, or you want to check out the fun we had in North Texas, this Bash recap is a wonderful way to showcase some Munzee memories!

If these pictures are making you feel left out because you weren’t able to join us this year, fear not! We announced at the end of Bash that next year’s MHQ Bash 7 will take place from Sept 25-27, 2020! That means it’s time to mark your calendars for some unforgettable future fun!

MHQ Bash Registration

Things started off on September 27 as we opened the doors to players for MHQ Bash Registration on Friday evening. Our first event of the weekend saw players meet up, check in, pick up purchases, shop our pop-up store, receive MHQ office tours, and earn prizes! The IRL Prize Wheel was present, with players earning a spin (for a maximum of 3 spins per player) for every 4 food items or 1 jar of peanut butter they brought as a part of our joint donation to the North Texas Food Bank.

Players were welcome to join us at all events for free with the Court Jester package, though there was the option to pre-order the King’s Court package. Players who purchased this package were able to pick up the following items:

  • Name Tag and Lanyard
  • Clan War Bag
  • T-Shirt
  • 2 Blast Caps
  • Munzee Magnet and Virtual Magnet
  • Special Edition Munzee Foam Sword commemorative item
  • A new in-game item that attendees will be the first to receive once released

While plenty of Texans joined us at MHQ for the festivities, we were thrilled to have players travel in from all parts of the country and world to celebrate Munzee with the international Freeze Tag Team. We concluded the night by drawing names for some additional IRL Prize Wheel spins, which saw the addition of two lucky players winning tickets to join us at Medieval Times in Dallas the following evening for dinner and a show, as well as a variety of other prizes being handed out. Players also had the opportunity to participate in an Eventzee photo scavenger hunt.

Knight’s Armor Eventzee Fun

Eventzee was in the spotlight on Saturday morning as players joined us in the Village at Fairview for an Eventzee hunt that saw players scouting out staff members holding various parts of the Knight’s Armor, as well as Clan Weapons, around the North Texas shopping center. Rob, Tamara, Craig, Mari, Guilherme, and Daniel spread out with pieces of the Knight’s Armor, while Louise, Mick, and Matt were stationed with Clan Weapons. Eventzee players traveled throughout the shopping center to snap photos for a fun morning of exercise and socialization that was followed by WallaBee‘s WallaBash afternoon celebration. And that was only half the fun for many Munzee players on day 2 of Bash!

A Night with Knights

In addition to the free Court Jester package and priced King’s Court package, players were also able to pre-purchase the package add-on of A Night with Knights. This granted them full access to joining us at Medieval Times in Dallas for a medieval times themed dinner and show that featured horse riding, jousting, and medieval immersion fun. A four-course meal was also included with purchase, which wrapped up day 2 of MedZEEval Times weekend.

Storm the Castle Eventzee Fun

Our final event took place on Sunday morning as we hosted our second Eventzee hunt of the weekend with our Storm the Castle fun run. Players enjoyed a sunny day in Russel Creek Park in Plano as they traveled around to the Eventzee Battlements (Tamara), WallaBee Wall (Robbie), Munzee Castle (Daniel), and Freeze Tag Fortress (Mari) for some photo hunt fun. Thankfully the Texas heat was a bit more forgiving, and players and staff alike were able to close out a successful weekend with sunshine, exercise, and smiles.

In addition to the scheduled events, players had the opportunity to meet up, socialize, and explore the area to earn an enormous amount of points. Thanks to the placement of special gardens, such as the Pink Peony, players from around the world were able to join in on the fun and earn CapOn points, as well as shop our worldwide weekend sale and enjoy the Knight’s Armor specials on the map!

Thanks again to everyone who came out to join in on the fun! We can’t wait to see what fun 2020 has in store for Bash in addition to all the events and fun along the way. In the meantime, players can get in on some scary fun socialization by enjoying the Halloween Event Packages!

Munzee on!

10/10 Means Time for 10 Pieces of Gameplay Advice!

It’s 10/10 today, which means no matter which part of the world you live in, we can all agree on the ordering of the date! And speaking of unity, we recently asked for players to send us their best gameplay tips via Facebook. After examining the many wonderful tips, we’re happy to compile 10 pieces of advice to help facilitate smooth gameplay for players who might be new to the game or are simply interested in hearing some friendly feedback!

The following advice has been compiled with the help of player feedback to assist in navigating all things Munzee. Enjoy!

1. Play it YOUR way. Munzee is all about playing exactly how you want to.

(Reart) – Play it your way. Don’t let anyone tell you you need to have so many points a day, be in a clan, do ZeeOps, or deploy lots of munzees. First get comfortable with capping and deploying a few (your free beginners pack) before you do all the other stuff. It will be less stressful. 

2. Take advantage of the Munzee community. There are many player groups and resources eager to help you out.

(MetteS) – First 0f all: Have fun! 🙂 Second: Don’t be afraid to ask more experienced players for help and advice. Most of us don’t bite 😉 Events and Facebook groups are great for this.

3. Attend a Munzee Event. Connecting to players in real life is a wonderful element of the game that provides more than just special badges and extra points. Make new friends who share a similar interest and learn invaluable advice.

(mobility) – Go to an event and meet experienced Munzee players and feel free to ask them about their experience.

4. Think before you deploy. Consider the best spot to deploy your munzees.

(PelicanRouge) – If deploying locally, remember your munzee may attract specials which you will want to cap in the future. It is perhaps not the best idea to deploy your munzee underneath a bench in a very busy area, as you can guarantee someone will be sitting on it when you need to cap it! (Trust me, I’m speaking from experience 🤣). Think before you deploy!

5. Consider a Munzee strategy. While how you play is entirely up to you, a strategy will help facilitate future progress.

(gruenthaler) – Start with deploying Greenies in your homezone and reserve places for future specials between these Greenies for Elemental stickers (Fire, Water, Ice, Earth) and for other specials, you may get in the future. Try getting those badges that may be harder to earn as a player who gets a lot of capture on points (for example the Pi badge), and last but not least: capture and deploy at least one munzee a day. A munzee a day keeps the doctor away 🙂

6. Be prepared. Many players carry Munzee Toolkits with them to facilitate easy access to deploys and gameplay.

(Prmarks1391) – Buy a battery pack, it’ll make playing the game so much more fun and less frustrating when your phone goes flat. But also take a look at the badges you could earn. Get some of them out of the way before you purchase some of the bouncers that may be sold, because they’ll get harder to achieve when you own a player owned bouncing special.

7. Help keep the map clean. Many players are a part of ZeeQRew or QRew in order to help keep the map clean and fun for everyone.

(LVBuccsFan) – Log everything. Don’t feel ashamed if you didn’t find a munzee. Lots of munzees go missing. Logging a munzee you did not find helps clear the map for other players. I myself replace munzees that haven’t been found by a few others just to keep the map fresh.

8. Consider competitive gameplay. When you feel ready to flex your Munzee muscles, look into Clan Wars for competitive group gameplay or ZeeOps for personal competition.

(Aukush) – Get into Clan Wars as soon as you can. It’s easy to reach higher levels in Clan Wars when you haven’t already capped a huge part of the munzees in your city. From Clan Wars, you can get credits to build up your city and make it more appealing for visitors.

9. Grow the map by planning your travels. Consider how you can expand the map and earn big when you’re out of town. Along the way you’ll find an added element of adventure and exploration that will help you discover new places!

(Littlethrower) – My advice is if you’re going to be traveling use the Munzee website to see if there are available munzees in that area. Helps you to plan ahead if that is something you’re planning on doing while there 🙂 or may even help you find a really cool place you wouldn’t have thought to check out!

10. Go at your own pace. In line with play it your way, don’t push yourself to master the game in a limited timeframe. Munzee is a multi-layered game that will take time, patience, and experience to learn. Consult the Help Guide to learn about new types, and enjoy the game every step of the way!

(Billykaren) – Take it slow! Read tips and tricks and any info you can gleam from Munzee and ask questions in the Facebook pages. Do not cap everything around you… save some for each day if you have limited deploys around you. Learn what and where to deploy your own to attract Mythologicals, Pouch Creatures, and more!

For more helpful tips and to stay in the loop with all things Munzee, be sure to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, and check our our Tips & Tricks Help Guide! Thanks to all players who took the time to send us their tips! You can always e-mail any tips to iloveyou@munzee.com to share your gameplay wisdom.

Munzee on!

Munzee Toolkit MunzDay: food & thefoods

One of the best parts about Munzee is that you can play how you want. Everyone goes about playing a bit differently, and that leads to some very creative and innovative uses of objects. From containers to bags to maintenance, we always encounter something new when we meet players. We want to showcase your Munzee Toolkits to see how you play the game and possibly even inspire other players who may need help! This week’s featured Munzee Toolkit comes from Munzee power couple food and thefoods!

This week’s featured Munzee Toolkit comes from food and thefoods. This couple has played Munzee together for years, each earning over 4 million points on their respective accounts! And judging by their Munzee Toolkit contents, the key to their shared success is always being prepared for any type of Munzee adventure!

Food & thefoods Toolkit

In the words of thefoods, the car is our toolkit… we have rigged it to have everything within reach.

Explanations left to right: 

  • The tablet goes on this magnet for directions
  • Zees waiting to be used
  • There is a clip attached to keep cords untangled
  • The phone hangs here when not in use

The Munzee-fied car includes the following:

  • 2 magnetic phone holders— one for the tablet to use for directions (left of pic) and one for the scissors when we are playing
  • Clip securely holding cords to keep them from tangling
  • Fishing Box (see below) to keep everything sorted and together (labels make it a quick grab)
  • New munzee stickers waiting to be used being held in the clip with the cords
  • A hook attached to hold the phone when not being used
  • Unicorn attached to the charging cord— because we could 🙂

Here is a quick view of the main pieces we use on each trip:

Also included in Munzee travels is the fishing box with stickers. Pro Tip: Fishing boxes make great storage for munzees!

Unveiling the All New Clan Wars System Changes!

NOTE: There are currently Clans created for testing purposes listed on the leaderboard in the app. These test clans will be removed at 00:01 on 10/3/2019. Please do not join these clans as they will not be active for the next Clan War battle. 

We’ve been hinting at our Clan Wars system update for a while, with the launch of our Beta testing, the revelation of new badges, and the unveiling of our new Clan Wars logo. But the day has finally arrived that our Clan Wars update is ready to officially launch! While there are many exciting changes to explore, we’d like to warn players that there is a lot to process. So before you feel overwhelmed, know that we have extensively mapped out all aspects of Clan Wars on our Help Guide for comprehensive reference!

These updates are all implemented to support our goal of making Clan Wars more accessible and flexible to a wider variety of players. Our aim is to create a Clan Wars experience that is in line with our Munzee mission to “Play Your Way!” These Clan Wars updates now make it easier for more players to join in on the fun and participate, while current Clan Wars players can still compete at their own pace.

That means that low level and elite clans alike both have the opportunity to reap the benefits of our updates, with the ability to earn all new badges and customize the way you play! Ready to get started?

Clan Wars Changes

In our mission to create a Clan Wars experience that our players can customize to suit their gameplay goals, clans with less than 10 members can now earn rewards in battle! This is one of our biggest gameplay changes that allows for a wider variety of clans to enter the battle and receive rewards. Requirements for smaller clans will be the same as 10 person clans, so smaller clans will need to do more work to complete each level.

Another significant change is that players can now join a clan at anytime during the battle. As  part of our newly updated system, all aspects of gameplay will move to mobile devices, and only the Clan Leaderboard will be available online. Though players can now join a clan at any time, players are still unable to leave a clan once the battle starts.

Any activity a player has done during the battle period will count towards the clan challenges once a player joins a clan, so any previous efforts were not in vain. However, if a player joins a clan that is at a higher level than they are, the clan will not be able to level up again until the new player has achieved all individual challenges to catch up.

Another exciting update is that rewards can now be collected immediately after your clan reaches the next level, instead of waiting until midnight for them to be sent. So, if a player joins a clan mid-battle, they will receive rewards for any levels achieved through their previous activity during the battle period. If the new player is at a lower level than their fellow clan mates, then the rest of the clan will still retain their rewards and simply have to wait for the newest clan member to catch up before leveling up.

In-App Updates

As we mentioned, the Clan Wars experience is now moving in-app, where clan members will have comprehensive access to the Clan Wars experience. This is an over-the-air update, meaning that players will not have to download any newer version of the app to gain access to the Clan Wars features. However, players might have to force quit and restart the app if they do not see the new Clan Wars features. It is also essential to make sure that you are playing on the latest version of the Munzee app.

The following features are now available in-app for Clan Wars in the new Clan Wars Hub:

The Roster Tab, which contains the following:

  • View total points for current clan battle across all members
  • Ability for clan leaders to manage their clan by editing the clan information, inviting players to join, approving/rejecting requests to join, promoting/demoting other members as leaders
  • Ability for clan leaders to edit the clan name, photo, tagline, level goal and privacy settings at anytime

The Challenges Tab, which contains the following:

  • Requirements and rewards displayed for each level of the clan battle
  • Progress is tracked and updated approximately every 10 minutes
  • View the entire clan’s progress on both individual and group challenges

The Clan Chat Tab, which contains the following:

  • The ability to coordinate with clan members using the new integrated clan chat area

The Leaderboard Tab, which contains the following:

  • See where your clan ranks against the top 100 clans

New Clan Settings

Another aspect on the in-app Clan Wars update is the new clan settings. Clans can now set a publicly visible goal to indicate what level their clan is aiming for each month. In general we believe there are two different types of clans:

  • Casual Clan – These clans may not have a specific level goal and may focus on just having fun, learning the game together and playing with family and friends
  • Level 1 to 5 – These clans are aiming for a specific level

Clans can also now choose a privacy level that will make their clan public, private, or hidden for those who are using the app to search for a clan they want to join. These different settings are as follows:

  • Public – Anyone can find and join your clan at anytime
  • Private – Anyone can find your clan, but can only request to join and must be approved by a clan leader from the Roster tab
  • Hidden – These clans will not appear in the search list, but clan leaders can still invite players to join from the Roster tab

When joining a clan, players can browse for clans to join using the app and can sort them by which level they are aiming for that month. They can use the search option to find specific clans by name or tagline or use the randomizer to browse through clans to join. If you want to recruit more local players to join your clan, putting the city/state/country in your tagline will help them find you when searching. For more information about this process, you can access our article for How to Join a Clan.

Additionally we have updated the Clan Leader System. Moving forward with the new system, the player who creates the clan will be assigned as the Leader. Leaders can then promote other members to help manage the clan. Note that anyone can be promoted to Leader, even players who don’t have a Premium Membership.

This also means that all existing clans have been transferred to the new system. Since the old system made any Premium Member an admin, and did not track when players joined, all current admins will be assigned as Leaders in the new system. Clans can then decide who to keep as leaders and demote the others to members.

New Badges & Clan Borders

In addition to these new updates, there is now the opportunity to earn badges for achieving certain ranks on the Clan Leaderboard. As we revealed in our October 2019 Clan Requirements blog, there are also badges you can earn each month for every level you reach with your clan. Additionally, new themed borders will now appear around your clan image, with a number of stars to indicate and show off the current level of your clan. They appear as follows:

Help Guide Access

Once again, we know that these updates might seem overwhelming at first, but our new Clan Wars section of the Help Guide contains comprehensive information expanding upon each aspect of Clan Wars gameplay. In the Help Guide, you can access articles on Clan Wars FAQs, Intro to Clan Wars, How to Join a Clan, How to Complete Challenges, How to Create a Clan, How to Manage Your Clan, and Clan Wars Hub.

Welcome to a brand new era of Clan Wars! We’re excited to see a wider variety of clans compete, and as always, feel free to play YOUR way!

Munzee on!

Celebrating September POTM and GOTM Winners!

Fall is settling in here in Texas, and we’re officially reaching the conclusion of Bash month. We’ve had an awesome 30 days filled with MedZEEval celebrations worldwide! Looking back at this festive month, we’re happy to award our appropriately themed winners of September Garden of the Month (GOTM) and Player of the Month (POTM), as well as announce the criteria for October POTM! Ready to find out which players battled their way to the top this month?!

September GOTM

It’s time to recognize some outstanding Virtual Garden builders! In honor of our MedZEEval themed Bash month, we selected winning gardens that are steeped in history. As always, all winning GOTM organizers and all players who deployed in the winning gardens will be awarded special badges for their contribution to growing the map. This month we’re happy to award Casa de Santana, organized by Cidinho, and Diezer Grafenschloss, organized by T72! The winning September GOTM gardens appear as follows:

Casa de Santana by Cidinho in the Madeira Islands

The Casa de Santana garden (left) is based on the typical houses of Santana (right), located in the Madeira Islands. 

This garden showcases one of the typical houses of Santana, a beautiful village located in the North Coast of the Madeira Islands. The small houses are composed of natural stone and thatched with straw, serving the locals for centuries as stables and dwellings. Now the area provides a tourist attraction. The region is comprised of 6 parishes, and the people essentially live from agriculture, craftwork, and tradition. In the words of garden creator Cidinho, the mountainous landscapes are dominated by the lush green that characterises the Laurissilva Forest, which was classified as “World Heritage” by the UNESCO, encouraging locals even more to do everything to maintain its beauty, which this garden does its best to show off. 

Diezer Grafenschloss by T72 in Diez, Germany

The Diezer Grafenschloss garden (left) is based on the Grafenschloss castle (right), located in Diez, Germany. 

This garden reached its completion in early August in time for the town of Diez to enjoy a double weekend event. Located in the little town of Diez is the Grafenschloss castle built in 1073. T72 created the garden in order to showcase the town for Munzee players worldwide and invite them to check out the castle. This fits right into Munzee’s spirit of adventure, and we love how he used his garden building skills to showcase what makes his area special. T72 tried to copy the original castle as much as he could in his design in order to make it recognizable for players. The green and blue bar under the castle indicate the Lahnwiesen and the river Lahn.

All players who deployed in the respective winning gardens will receive the following special badges:

Do you know a garden that is worthy of the October GOTM title? We’re asking for players to submit already created gardens for the chance to win any of our upcoming Garden(s) of the Month! Just be sure to follow the rules!

Rules for GOTM nominations:

  1. Garden must feature non-licensed character designs.
  2. The garden must feature a Garden Places Pin.
  3. The garden must be built using a publicly available spreadsheet which we will ask to be locked after being 100% deployed.

September POTM

In honor of Bash month, we created a special badge for our September POTM winners! This unique POTM badge is eligible for any player to earn regardless of previous wins:

This badge will be awarded at 00:01 MHQ time on Tuesday, October 1 to all players who earned at least 5,000 points from any Clan Weapons activity. That means you still have a few hours left to finish earning your points if you want to pick up this all new badge! Congratulations to all players who battled their way to earning this custom badge, but if you didn’t quite make the cut, then  there is still hope for next month!

October POTM Criteria

Do you use a third party app or website to make your Munzee experience even better? Do you have a favorite reseller who always has what you’re looking for? Well let us know, because this October’s POTM nominations are for those who go the extra mile for the good of the game. We’re looking for you to email nominations to iloveyou@munzee.com for QRazy Contributors!

Although the Freeze Tag Team is always hard at work making the game as great as possible, there are a number of external tools that our players have put together themselves, and we couldn’t be more proud! This is a wide open nomination theme, but we do request that in your nomination emails you include a link to a website, app, etc. so we can confirm the greatness of these players!

A final congratulations to all of our winning GOTM and POTM September players! Bash month has been one for the books, and it’s been a pleasure to get in the MedZEEval spirit with many of you!

Munzee on!
