Whats up crafters? I know some of you are dying to get back on the server, so I'm going to release the dates on which we are reopening (which is very soon). I'll try be as concise as possible and I'm certain that everyone will get the jist of what is going to be different and new about the server (and most importantly the same).
The core of our community has always been Factions, this is why when we reopen we will only have the faction server up. I don't expect to make some massive return, with hundreds of players on in the first few hours but I do expect that we will still have a functional player-base. As I stated earlier there are going to be some major changes to how the "Community" works, now I say the word "community" since I mean something quite different to the server itself. Partly a mistake on my part, there has always been those members who disrupt the community and create a negative environment on the server. To a certain extent these players can sometimes create some enjoyable PvP experience because it feels good when you kill them, but when there is certain members who are constantly pickering and creating a negative environment on the server we are going to pretty much straight up perma-ban you. This means that "RULES" will be pretty clear and you will know what and what can't you do, we are also introducing a vote ban type setup. Where the community can rally together and vote for someone to be banned and in most cases (unless the reason is complete nonsense) we will be willing to hear your voices and ban them.
As far as the gameplay goes, it's pretty much going to be standard. I'm going to be focussed "HEAVILY" on creating a non-lag and professional environment. This means from the moment you jump on the server when it opens there is going to be NO LAG, A full shop and no glitches. This is why I have set a far enough date for me to get all this together and ready. I'll be releasing more spoilers and news as we get closer to the date of opening thanks for your time!
TL;DR Reopening 20th April, New Rules (No grace for hackers and people who cause trouble) and only Factions is reopening (for now).
