The Announcement Stage is a location that frequently appears in ExplodingTNT's videos.
AppearanceThe Announcement Stage changed the way it looks over time, from being a covered up podium to smaller structures. In recent videos, the announcement stage has the appearance of a small structure made of sandstone, smooth stone slabs and red clay. There is a microphone on the front, and a red wall behind the stage for any explanation signs or pictures. There is a fenced off plot in front of it, where the audience can stand.
The Announcement Stage is usually used in the pre-title card scenes, when Notch uses it to announce that a new update was added (eg Expert Mode). There are usually quite a few people in the audience, with Superidiot55 being common in the crowd, along with Noob 53918 and many random players.
