I'd like to take a minute to remind old and new players alike that Saturday nights are Events Nights!
This completely optional event, which starts at around 9pm Eastern time every Saturday, is the perfect opportunity for our players to do something besides mining and crafting. PvP, pig racing, parkour, mazes and more are on the menu!
Two new locations have been added recently to the rotation: Chicking by iKatze and Isle of Carnage by WindRider739. Chicking, playable by up to four players at the same time, involves using fishing rods to catch falling chicken. The first person to get five wins! Isle of Carnage is a large area (400x200 blocks) dedicated to PvP battles. It's sheer size makes it especially suitable for large groups of players, potentially regrouped in two factions: red and blue.
Want to have some fun? Something different than the usual Minecraft gameplay? Then join us on Events Nights!
UPDATE: Something came up and I might be showing up late tonight. I'll do my best to be there to start this up, but it might be delayed. Sorry about that!
First things first, thank you everyone who applied for a position. We had a great turnaround, and it's always good to see that people from the community want to get involved on a deeper level!
Several names were received, many were considered, but we could only accept a few! As such, please welcome iKatze as server op, and AleXxXfry and mormonmoo as helpers! Congratulations! All three of you will be getting shortly a private message on the forums with more detailed information.
For those who do not know, Kusorai recently stepped down on his own accord from his Op status. He will remain around as Helper to assist the player base.
As an aside, Krodane, AshaLina and itsthesherf have all inherited the new Media status, as they handle our YouTube, Tumblr/Facebook and Twitter accounts respectively! This new status doesn't come with any special abilities, but will allow players to have a clue to the special role they're playing around here.
Hot on the heels of last week's 1.5.2 update, the server is now running the latest version of Minecraft with some bug fixes. Please update and keep on playing!
Minecraft 1.5.2 is expected to be released soon to fix some bugs. Unfortunately, 1.5.1 servers and 1.5.2 clients are NOT compatible. This means that, in order to keep on playing with us, you must wait before upgrading!
The jump to the new version should happen faster than the 1.5 update as fewer changes have been done to the game. Please be patient until then!
