    Hi all. I'd like to address the rumors about SkyWars being added to the server.

    We are currently exploring adding new game modes to our server. One of the potential game modes is SkyWars. We have not, however, made a decision about it, nor do we currently have any information to share about the process.

    Some people are sharing that they use /find to see me or Nick on a server named "SkyWars". This is not an active server despite it being seen by using the /find command or the /glist command. This was a error Nick made, not knowing that the everyone would be able to see it when they did /glist.

    I can say that we are using that area to test different plugins. We may or may not choose to use one of those we have tried or we may choose to create our own. When we have something definite to share we will.

    We do not want you all to be waiting for us to open up a game when we are not sure if or when we are adding it.

    I can say that we will be adding more game modes and we are working on a few right now. Since they are still in development there is little to say about them now. Our current ideas are morphing and changing as we work together to make the games more enjoyable for our players.

    The only definite we have, at this time, to share is that we are working to change Invasion to be a very different style of play. The new Invasion (Invasion 3.0 I like to call it), will be much less reliant on items for each class, and instead will take advantage of the new 1.9 pvp style (Think exploding pig cannons....), super powers not super weapons.

    Nick is working on getting Invasion 2.1 back online and hopefully it will be up on line this weekend...hint hint @SirNickParks...but we will let you know when it is ready. Invasion 2.1 will have no hit delay as it does have a huge impact on the game as it stands. This is not just a matter of an annoyance as it is on SkyRealms, or Factions, it is a hinderance to the game style which was built on the aspects of the pvp that were around when it was designed. The speed of play that is necessary can not be accomplished with the hit delay as the game is currently designed. The hit delay will return with Invasion 3.0.

    NoHitDelay is already on factions aka one of about 1,000 reasons why no one plays it u just spam click someone and its just a way for eZ kids to brag about how they won.

    like i totally get this thread, but if you didn't want any "rumors" to be spread about the on going skywars server (when it's not even necessarily just skywars, but instead a place to test plugins or whatever), why call it "skywars"? lol

    yea it's just a sluggish ping war that annoying kids will brag "OH I WON EZ" where in 1.7/1.8 they just suck.

    it was an accident. Nick didn't realize that it would show up on glist and create this kind of issue. He is now aware and won't do it again.
