Another week, another shipped feature.
This week, we released a major Metaverse update packed with improvements and bug fixes. We also welcomed a new ambassador, published a marketing update, and more. Let’s dive in.
🎮 Metaverse Updates
We released a major ICE Poker Metaverse update that includes:
- Assigned Seating V3
- Quality of life improvements
- Various bug fixes
Assigned Seating V3
Our goal with Stage 1 of Assigned Seating V3 is to keep venues as full as possible to keep the active tables filled and make colluding more difficult.
To kick things off, only servers DG, Artemis, and Baldr will be available for Challenge Mode gameplay. If you’re in a closed server, you’ll be prompted to go to an active server.
To see all the updates, check out the patch notes.
👑 Ambassador EmpressRaeon

🏴☠️ ICE Pirate & Chip
This week, we got a glimpse into how the ICE Pirate and Chip arrived in Decentraland.
Watch the video to get a peek into their backstory.
Thank you for giving Chip a warm welcome and showing him a good time around Decentraland. He appreciates the love.
Recently, he’s been going on adventures with MikeyZee at the Stronghold, Dollhouse, and other locations. Follow along below.
