  1. 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.
  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. 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

  13. Upgraded Website Today I am posting to officially announce that the website has undergone some fairly major upgrades, as you can probably see. As of this post, we are still waiting for the upgrade of our own look and feel to be completed for the new software, however most of the functionality has been restored already. In addition we have some nice new features such as the Member Map and new Support System. All punishment appeals will now be run through the support system to better streamline the responsiveness of moderators and other team members. We hope this will ensure faster and more efficient responses from the team overall. In addition you will ALSO see that suggestions and bugs can be posted through here too. We prefer them posted there but if you want community input, you are welcome to use the existing forum to nut out your idea before posting it officially via the Suggestion Submission system. Hopefully we will all notice some performance improvements with this upgrade as well as a much much higher compatibility with Mobile and Tablet Devices! Server Status We are currently finished the prep work required to reset the server. There is a temporary Ancient World that has been put up to allow users to play around during this time. We expect the entire process to be completed before the end of this weekend. As far as towns and emeralds are concerned, we HAVE calculated how much each town Mayor will be given. All recorded town mayors will be receiving a partial refund to allow them to establish towns of reasonable size after the reset. The number was built upon how many users each town had at the time our original announcement was made... NOT how many plots or outposts the town had. Why can't we just get a full refund? Villagers spawned at huge rates due to the way that towns were spawning. This resulted in a massive influx of ill-gotten emeralds that should not have existed. As mentioned in the previous topic there were towns with hundreds upon hundreds of emeralds and even a few with thousands... all within 2 weeks. As such we felt it unfair to take them all away as at least some would have been obtained legitimatly. Partial refund calculations have been saved and will be issued within the next week to mayors. For all other members: look to your mayor for a re-invitiation or to otherwise negotiate your share of the refund. The Mayor has discretion at this time and we will not be stepping in to divvy up the spoils. Premium Users Over the coming weeks I will be organising 2 week passes for Premium users to reimburse for the past 2 weeks. We sincerly apologize that the plugin failure has caused such a mess. We hope to rectify it and leave it be after this final set of fixes rolls out. We hope that you can all understand the reasons behind the reset (Even though the members voted for it) Web Store Along with the server and website upgrades, the webstore has been updated to reflect both sets of changes. This includes the new currency and new discounts offered for Premium and VIP members. View the new store here. We are still accepting suggestions for new items and even entire kits via the new suggestion system. While we try to take every suggestion seriously, we certainly can't guarantee that your idea will make it to live. You may suggest names, text colours, item stats and even the price we sell them at. If sold, you will be given the first created one (free of charge) and your name will be displayed in the store as 'Designed By: ' SIDENOTE: The TeamSpeak server has also received a minor codec upgrade which should improve the voice quality. Please let us know if there is anything wrong and we can rollback to the previous config. Thank you for reading my Text-Wall. We sincerly welcome feedback and are thankful that you are all here to enjoy the new features with us. Kind Regards, The Abyssal Gaming Network Team
