    We are excited about the new update and would love to be one of the first to make the change to 1.9. Many of our players, however, have recently expressed concerns about the changes this update will bring. Well, we heard your concerns.

    For that reason we are going to open up a special test server this weekend. This will give our players a chance to actually see how these changes will impact their game play on our network. Even if you don’t love the update, once you’ve played on it you will have a better idea of things that might need to be tweaked. We think though that once you see the changes you will actually want to update to 1.9.

    Of course if our players still don’t want 1.9, even after giving it a fair chance, we will stick with 1.8, for now. At this time there is no pressing need to update so we can put it off for a little while.

    We think there is a lot of value in being one of the first to update to 1.9 but our loyal players are even more important to us. We appreciate your continued support and all the effort you put into letting us know how you feel.

    Btw there's a 1.9 Spigot hack that will make the server easier to connect to for 1.9 users :p

    YOU SPOKE, SIR!!!!!

    @MoonlessMidnight I am excited for the update, but timid of the player count drop.

    @drtshock what will happen to the sword cooldown? How will you adapt the classes on invasion. (If it gets far enough, past testing)

    Is it possible to keep invasion 1.8 still?

    EDIT: The reason why you want to update is to attract players saying that this server is one of the only 1.9 servers out there...I like it. But we need unique features, such as mods, for the players to stay and keep coming back, to untimely buy ranks. You may loose many OG players, but get a lot of new players...

    I'm exited and nervous. I'd like to try it out, but I'm nervous about how many people will leave because of it. :grimacing:

    Thank you for listening to our concerns. The test server is an awesome idea. If Mojang put this much time into 1.9, it's worth trying it out.

    From the little bit of 1.9 I've played...I didn't like it, but I'm definitely willing to give it a shot. However, I don't think we should rush to update after a simple test server.

    Can't wait to see how 1.9 will affect the server, bad or good. Whatever happens I'll still be here!

    If you guys ever update to 1.9 please be smart and only update skyrealms & creative to 1.9 please, do it for the server.

    PS: make Factions & Invasion 1.7/1.8 at the same time.

    -3 people make form thread asking people to vote for 1.8 or 1.9. 29+ people vote for 1.8
    -admin asks people on skyrealms and faction "do u want 1.8 or 1.9" everyone spams 1.8
    -people with $100+ rank say they will charge back if server updates to 1.9
    -50+ people say they will quit shock if it updates
