The third season of Cube SMP was announced on March 5th, 2016 and officially began on March 12, 2016. The season ended around December 2016, due to both members and viewers losing interest. Most members of the Cube SMP are part of the Cube UHC roster. The Cube SMP is a private, white-listed, invite only server, therefore players can't join at their own accord.
In this season of the Cube SMP, there are two teams, North Side and South Side. North Side has 8 players, while South Side has 7 players, West side has 3. As well as North and South Side, there is a separate island where former North Side leader Bee resides, since she wasn't able to decide which team to join.
CreeperFarts betrayed North Side at the beginning of the first war! After Bee had done their intro, he sailed across to South Side and his name changed from yellow to red. Graser noticed prior to the war that Ant had stolen his best set of armor, so he suspected something.
In the closing hours of the first war, Kiingtong approached Graser and Bee, saying he wanted to join North Side, but to do it undercover. This way, he could set up traps for his team members without them knowing. He later explained that this was because he felt kind of bad for North Side, as they didn't necessarily have a fair chance in the first war!
In order to continue the Mafia roleplay, either Poke or Joe would have to switch sides, so they are on the same side. A random dispensed item from a dispenser would decide if Poke or Joe would leave. Poke got 3 of the same dispensed item, and so had to leave South Side.
After a search for an elytra, the South Side offered Bee that if she joins their side they will give her an elytra. Bee did not join their side, giving the reason that they killed her in the war, but didn't want to go back to North Side. Because of this, she made her own side, with her pet pig Ralph.
Mitch created his own side, West Side, & eventually recruited both HBomb94 & NoBoom. Although they needed some time to think about it, the choice was made to balance it.

South side held a 'Capture the Wool' game with each other. It was like the game from Season 2 of the Cube SMP, where there were two teams, and you had to try and get the other team's wool to your side. The two teams were StrauberryJam and Grapeapplesauce and TYBZI and PrivateFearless. Straub and Grape won the game.
The first prank was by South Side to North Side. They wanted to get revenge since a member from North Side blew up their secret underground vault and so flooded the whole North Side spawn.
The second prank was by Parker to South Side. Parker set an AFK death trap for himself, and accumulated approximately 800 Parker heads. Along with NoBoom and HBomb, they placed all the heads on South Side, and challenged them to a prank war.
Kiingtong tried to start a war by stealing the heads off of the South Side wall, but it failed when CreeperFarts was exploring North Side and uncovered the heads. North Side did manage to retrieve the heads, though.
North Side members Kiingtong, Graser10, and MrMitch361 blew up a section of New South City on South Side, which South Side responded to with a spam of obsidian all over North Side.
When Graser10 went missing, Hbomb94 didn't know if he was getting pranked so he decided to prank the whole server by building tons of Graser heads around the sever and putting signs on the heads asking if anybody has seen him.

This season has been getting a lot of hate and drama from the viewers, who are saying that the war is a complete failure and that Cube is dead. Graser addressed these issues in a video , as well as replying to reddit posts.
