After a long, long, looooong wait, and a shameful amount of sweat, we can proudly announce that the server has been updated to 1.14.4!
You will be able to join with any 1.14.X client. Even with 1.13.X! Although we can't recommend it, unless you want your crossbows to become stone.
We haven't just updated to 1.14, we have updated a ton of stuff!:
No more walls of text explaining the rules and how to play. Now we've got custom commands! use /help to get started.
Goodbye old ugly spawn, hello new spawn! (also for survival and nether!).
We now have a dynmap! Dynmap is a web-based real time map of our server. You can check it out by clickin on the Dynmap icon in the navigation bar. You can also get a link to it by saying "!dynmap" on discord. Our bot will give you the link!.
Talking about discord, you might see in chat sometimes people who have a | D | at the start of their name. This indicates the message is being sent through Discord. Yep, we now have cross-chat between Discord and Minecraft!.
We also have polls on Discord now! Want to help the server change? Your opinion matters! Simply join us and vote on the polls.
The shop is being re-worked. We want a thriving, player-based market. Admin shop will still be around to buy and sell basic items like stone, dirt, enemy drops, etc. There will be a zone for players to build their own shops and sell items to other players, as well as the /auctionhouse which is already available.
More plugins! We're almost at 80 plugins now. After rigurous testing and configuring we're proud to say the server runs smoothly with all of them.
Custom particle effects, night skip voting and linking items in chat are only some of the new ones. Come and take a look!.
This doesn't mean we're gonna stop here. More changes are coming in the future. Our first priority will be Quality of Life plugins (those that make your life easier) and reworking ranks. Now, don't panic, this doesn't mean you're going to lose your rank or perks. Some might be slightly changed to balance everything more, but most importantly, we're adding stuff to every single rank. We'll keep you updated on this.
For now, this is everything. But we will have more news soon.
If you want to know the latest news, join us on discord! We'll welcome you with open arms.
Times change, and so must we. Moving to 1.14 has proven to be very difficult: Plugins that aren't updated, corrupted worlds, broken mechanics...
All that is finally over.
We've finally moved the almost 80 plugins now on the server to 1.14. It has been a lot of work, but it has paid off. There are a lot of open doors for us now: Dungeons, minigames, pets, custom particles, duels, new rankup system, custom items...the list is endless.
When can we expect the move? in about 2 weeks. Exact day will be posted both here and on Discord once known.
As part of the update, and since the world generation has changed in 1.14, to avoid problems we're gonna have a world reset. That means your buildings will disappear (If you don't want this to happen, please send me a message either here on the forums, on Discord or at email@example.com before the reset with your in-game name as well as the coordinates to your base).
Another thing that will reset is the economy. Since there are going to be a lot of changes to prices, everyone's money will be reset.
Not everything is lost, though. You can keep your items, except for some. Here's a list of items that will NOT be allowed, and will be removed:
- Mob Egg (any kind)
- Dragon Head
- End Crystal
- Name Tag
- Iron Horse Armor
- Golden Horse Armor
- Diamond Horse Armor
- Music Disc
- Nether Star
- Elite Items
So, how do you save your items? It's really simple. All you have to do go through the water portal next to the creative plots portal. Claim a plot, place some chests and put ALL your items in those chests before the update (remember you also have a /backpack and /echest. After the update, that world will still be available, so you can go there, grab everything and take it to your new home.
In order to avoid problems with new players, please contact me with your in-game name to give you access to this world before the update!!
This is the ONLY way to save your items!!
Thank you again for your continuous support. I was going to say this later, but since we're updating, I'll say it now. When the server is out of beta, everyone will be promoted to the next rank. Memberplus will be promoted to Elite, Elite will be promoted to Samurai, etc, as part of the reward for helping us shape the server.
If someone is Emperor (the last rank) before the beta is over, I will personally talk with them to give them a unique reward that will NOT be available to anyone else, ever.
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask in Discord's general or support channels, or send me a PM.

Secondary plugins are plugins that expand your experience in the server. They're not required to play in the server, but you'll have a much better understanding of it, and you'll enjoy it a lot more.
AreaShop is a plugin that allows players to rent shops. To get there, just go to /spawn and follow the Player Shop sign.
Next, find an empty area that hasn't been rented yet. You'll see a sign like this one:
If it has been already rented, this is how it will look like:
After finding a place that you like, simply right click the sign to rent it for the time and price specified. All you need to do now is build your shop and wait for players to come! To learn how to actually create the shops, please read about the plugin UltimateShops.
If your shop is unrented or expires, everything inside the shop will be deleted!
Keep this in mind!.
Minepacks is a plugin that allows you to have a backpack! You can easily access it by using /backpack.
Your backpack's size will be bigger or smaller depending on your rank, up to 54 extra slots.
If you're Member+ or higher, your backpack will automatically grab items when your inventory is full.
If you're Shogun or higher, your inventory, as well as backpack items won't be dropped on death.
If you're lower than Shogun, you can always use /back to retrieve your items, unless you fall off the world or fall in lava.
Blackjack is a simple card game where the player plays against the dealer (server), and the objective is to draw cards where, in total, add a value as close to 21 (or 21), but without going over. To win, you must have a higher value than the dealer's cards, but never going over 21.
All you have to do to play is write the command /blackjack (amount) , and a GUI will appear.
You can then see your cards and the total amount they represent:
You can either hit (draw another card) or stand. Standing means you'll both show the results and, whoever was closest to 21, wins. This is shown in the chat, and it tells you if you won or if you lost.
