This announcement is long overdue but let me get the boring stuff out of the way. Sale We are having a 30% off sale through the rest of the weekend! Network Updates Our host is not a typical Minecraft host so they didn't have certain settings setup initially to be ideal for a Minecraft network. They've since made some adjustments and put us on some new upstream rules as well as on a stronger network. We had issues with 'port saturation' where servers on our block would be having too much traffic through one port causing all users to suffer. Ideally, the switch we made last night should resolve all lag and connection issues people have been having. Factions After a lot of hard work, we're finally ready to release our reset! The reset brings some new plugins, Faction updates, and tons of other fixes and builds. To highlight a few: New spawn from our build team New warzone by Deathsnake New crate keys for purchase and for voting Mcmmo no longer has a purchase limit and is much, much cheaper. No more mob arena (had too many people abusing it) New /warp schematics Disguises working again! New sell prices in shop New kits Votes now give you crate keys that can have items, money, mcmmo, and even rank kits MVP and above have /nv which toggles unlimited night vision on and off More playervaults per rank! Size updates automatically as you rank up. New pretty messages! Items As always, all items, vaults, enderchests, money, mcmmo, exp, factions, claims, worlds, and everything else except for ranks reset. When you join the server again for the first time, you will get your mcmmo and money for your rank exactly 3 seconds after you join. If you log off right away, you will not get your money and mcmmo so make sure to stay! Bans Bans reset as well. The only people that were kept banned are our globally banned players as well as the people that duped before the reset. Those players have a 7 day ban from today. Voting We're becoming huge proponents of voting. Our server has risen in the rankings a ton with the addition of voting keys on Skyrealms. We are now bringing them to Factions (again) with some great rewards! Each time you vote, you have a chance to get an assortment of items from the following list: 32 Diamonds 32 Obsidian 32 TNT Premium Kit VIP Kit MVP Kit 2 Gapples 5 ShockApples 64 Cookies 1 Fusion Key 1 Plasma Key You can still vote twice a day to get rewarded on all servers. We are currently ranked #80 on minecraftservers.org, lets see how high this can bring us Future Updates We are currently working on a new 1v1 system that will be used on Factions and Skyrealms. After that update is out, our focus will be on a new game mode. The plan is to have the first new game ready to test by early June and then released early-mid June. We won't have many new features coming to the servers during that time but we will be fixing bugs that come up as always.
