CHIEF I CAN'T FRIKKEN BUILD ANYTHING SINCE EVERYONE IS BLOWING UP MY SHIZ!!!1111!!!!111!
Fear not! Beginning Friday, April 18, 2014, a new creative world will be open to everyone on the serve where players may build to their hearts' content. The creative world is organized into 32 by 32 block plots in which players may purchase with Rupees. Any player ranked [Private] and higher may claim plots. Claiming one plot will cost 50 Rupees. This fee is nonrefundable should a plot be abandoned or condemned. Certain items may be prevented from being used in the creative world to prevent lagging, spamming, glitching, and griefing. Please note that the staff may close plots that have been neglected for an extended period of time, are innapropriate, or cause lag. This world is meant to be a nice getaway from the competitive atmosphere of the survival world, so that users may experiment with builds that will be protected or otherwise might not have been built in survival. Below is the maximum number of plots each rank will be able to purchase.
After much consideration, the server will complete it's full circle in its journey through multiple server formats and setting changes and return to the pre-July-2013-explosive nature that Judgment Realm once was. Ahhh the nostalgia. So, the only thing that will change from the server as it is now to the server that it will soon be is that explosions of any sort will cause its normal damage and the blocks destroyed WILL NOT regenerate.
Now a lot of you might be saying "Chief what the heck you were the biggest advocate against griefing by explosions and 'playing Minecraft how it was intended to be played'." My response is this: the amount of people that have been on the server on average at any given time as well as participation on the forums is noticeably lower than it was about 6 months ago. Due to this, it makes a lot of sense to change the server's format to how it was when it was most popular, when there were faction wars and epic raids and unions of soviet factions. Factions with actual raiding make for really exciting conflicts: the poetic cycle between being a powerful faction to being war torn.
Also, with this change will make the server an authentic factions server, instead of a towny-factions crossbreed. People either want a building server, or a raiding server...not both, which was what the server was trying to be (also, switching completely from Factions to Towny would be a hassle).
The official date this all will be changed is posted at the bottom of this post. From now until then, it is in your best interest to make a secure base, protect your valuables, and form a faction of people of whom you can trust. And as always, have a nice day.
FULL EXPLOSIONS WILL BE RE-IMPLEMENTED ON FRIDAY, APRIL 11, 2014 @ 9:11 PM CST.
