  1. Hello everyone, As you may or may not know, I am Tarquin and I founded Abyssal Gaming on the heels of a sour partnership with 2G1M many years ago. We eventually found and partnered with the great LDShadowlady who allowed us to act as an 'official' fan server for her - in turn allowing us to meet many of you amazing people! This has become more than a community for most of us staff, it has become a family. Many of us have been significant others, including Myself, Kilias, Ankcta, Gunta, Loki, Blue, Luna and many more... it really has been one of the best chapters I have had the pleasure of being apart of in my online 'career'. Alas, Minecraft isnt what it used to be. Those who still play it enjoy the pace of mini-games far more than of survival, and attempts to make survival more intense is often met with resistance - as such finding the balance has been difficult. Top that off with much fewer resources than most of our 'competition' has access to and we just cant survive. At this stage less than 30% of the monthly costs are made up from premium subscriptions and store purchases, the remainder of that bill has been paid by the dedicated staff... the dedicated family of ABGN. Unfortunately as time has gone by, most of the staff have earned more and more obligations outside of the community and are around less, as such it is unfair to burden them with a cost that I personally cannot cover either. All of this leads to the following regretful announcement... Today we say goodbye to our dedicated servers and worlds/maps that we have enjoyed for a long time. This doesn't come easy, but it does have to come at last. We will still be around on discord (http://www.abgn.net/discord) and hope to continue to hang out, however we will (at least in the near future) no longer have an official minecraft server. I'd like to personally take this moment to thank the entire team, current and past, who have not only financially supported the community but have helped make it into what it was at its height and what it can still be proud of today. Without each and every one of these people, the server just wasnt a good place to be. Mickket: Honestly became a major cornerstone of the community. 85% of the special and cool features over the past 5 years have probably come from him. I will forever be in his debt. Kilias: We became brothers very quickly and that relationship has persisted and will last forever. HernV and Hellefleur: You guys were always so alike - honestly two of the most honest and sincere people I have met. Just truly decent individuals. Loki & Gunta: You are honestly one of my favorite accomplishments - I am so glad I could push you guys to talk to each other. Blue, Luna, Sed, Drifter: Thanks to this community I have extended my friends to the southern area of the USA, so glad to have gotten to meet most of you Ankcta: Awww... cmon... do I even need to? There are many premiums, VIPs and members that we became close friends with also, I truly hope that you pop on discord and we can hang out again in the future, but if not, Thank you to all of you. Financially supportive or otherwise, each of you were equally important. Farewell friends and family, I hope I get to play with all of you again, dont forget... www.abgn.net/discord. We'll still be there and we may even find something else to start up, which would eventually be announced there and here on the forum. Thank You. An administrative note: Anybody who paid money during June has been refunded. I have also tried to remove all billing agreements so that payments stop coming through automatically. Thank you to all of you for your support over the years.
  2. Public Server Reset Coming Soon

    It's official, the reset will occur this weekend. We plan to continue adding additional features to the server over time, however gradual difficulty and a new custom world type have been introduced from day one, so keep your eyes out for them! Plus a creative world! See you soon!
  3. Public Server Reset Coming Soon

    Calling VIP Members! We are happy to announce that the new spawn will have plots that VIP's can 'dibs' over the first few weeks. Keeping with the basic theme of the city, you may build whatever you think fits. It will be a first come first serve so when the server goes live, find the plot # you want, the code on the sign and send me a PM here on the forums with the number, the code and your in game name. Ensure you give a second and third preference so that if you dont get the one you want, you get the 2nd choice or 3rd choice. All allocations are STRICTLY first come first serve, there are a few different terrains to build with (We expect you to, for the most part, build WITH the terrain and not just flatten it) and a few different sizes. Allocations will be based on the timestamp in your PM to me down to the seconds. P.S. Remember that bigger isnt always better, you need to be able to produce enough supplies to build in the whole space you select!
  4. 2018 Apocalypse

    What is the apocalypse? The apocalypse is how we celebrate years of building and adventuring on the current map. We begin with the fall of perpetual night as the world slowly turns in on itself. No... seriously... end portals start to spawn around giant pillars of Lava and magma, mobs start spawning in increased numbers and rates and withers begin to form in the deep and dark caverns. That's just stage one! Stage two is an array of attacks on major towns and cities around the server where NOTHING is safe. Withers start to appear with ghast and Blaze armies along side. Town(y) protection starts to fall and builds are longer safe from mobs. Stage Three is a much more coordinated attack resulting in the end of all you know on the server, finishing with a black screen. This is when we switch off the server and prepare the new map for launch. Stay tuned for more information on what and when everything is happening! See you soon!
  5. Public Server Reset Coming Soon

    The team is proud to provide you a sneak peak of the new spawn/lobby that is under construction. The entire staff has been busy carefully coordinating and constructing the new server and we hope that everyone enjoys it. More information and maybe even screenshots to follow. Maybe even an opening night Fireworks show
  6. 2018 Apocalypse

    The end has arrived... The apocalypse has officially begun. As you read this, minions of evil venture their way into the world with the sole intention of torturing your souls! Be ready for a fight if you dare! Take up your arms and defend your homes! WARNING: No town is safe, this is NOT an Opt-In event. For more information on the reset, see our previous thread. The following cities have been attacked: Argenta The following cities have been Destroyed: TBA
  7. This is a quick announcement that yes, the rumors are true, after several years we are finally revamping the public server. Not alot of information has been prepped for release to the public, however we are working on a few ideas we hope you all love and some extra fun perks for the premium and VIP members. But Tarquin, you haven't told us anything?! You're right, well I can tell you a couple of things; The first you won't like but it has to happen. Your inventory nor any chests or items of ANY KIND will be coming over. So have fun with them while they last. We will possibly run an apocolypse like normal, so feel free to gather and prepare your Diamond armor and Swords, although it usually doesn't help against my mighty horde of Withers. There will be a new rank available, exact details haven't been finalized. That is Builder. Builder's will be approached by management (You cannot apply for it) based on the quality of your builds as well as your community reputation. Builders will be involved in server builds whenever we are doing them (We hope to be more frequent) We are no longer taking applications for staff, much like builder we will be approaching trusted members with a positive community reputation. We ARE taking suggestions (Nothing is guaranteed), you may reply to this topic with a suggestion. All suggestions should follow the rules below. The date of the reset is not yet confirmed, we are currently working to build certain aspects of the new server before we set a date. Stay tuned. More information will follow once we finalize the features and details. Also stay tuned for this! Suggestion Guidelines First and foremost, serious suggestions only. Don't reply with "me too" responses, simply click the like button (Bottom right of posts) to add your support. Reply if you have your own suggestion or a similar but different one to an existing one. No debates or arguments in this topic. Tell your friends to come have their say also. We are remaining survival multiplayer, not creative.
