    Hello!
    We're announcing a rather large project we've been working on for the past few weeks. This announcement post is not intended to reveal any specific information about our project, however, we are intending the inform all of our players that there are some major updates in the works.
    Our recent advertisements have been great, and we hope to keep a lot of our new players around.
    What I can reveal - we're adding a brand new server to the Hub. This won't be Skyblock like previously (We've learnt twice how ineffective it is on our network)
    Feel free to guess what we're adding, however, no staff member will confirm incorrect/correct guesses :p

    You can expect a trailer for this server in the coming week, and expect the release within a few weeks. Until then, I don't wish to reveal any more information than I already have :)

    Quick Questions:
    Q: How do I know this gamemode will stick around (unlike Skyblock)?
    A: Skyblock was introduced as a hasty decision back in June 2016 when we had a (relatively ineffective) advertising slot. We believed at the time that the gamemode would bring in more traffic, however, this wasn't the case.
    Over Christmas and January we've received a lot of purchases through the store and have appropriate funding the ensure that this gamemode is fully advertised (like our success earlier this month) along with the rest of the server. We will be encouraging users to re-upload the trailer, too in exchange for some in-game content. Not only does our upcoming gamemode appeal to many players, it can also be monetized relatively well (A major issue with Skyblock and its lack of donations)

    Q: Will my prison rank transfer over to this new server?
    A: No, we intend to keep the ranks separate like we done with Skyblock. This is purely because we don't have the sort of playerbase to succeed from a global rank system.

    Q: Will there be a different IP?
    A: No, the gamemode will be added to the server selector and our hub will be our default server.


    Apologies this post has no specific content available right now, but we hope you're excited for the changes to come :)
    Aaron

    I am going to guess sky wars

    Edit: Will any past purchases from skyblock carry over in some way?

    I'm unsure.
    If we do grow to the point we can comfortably add skyblock, then it'd be super messy if we did end up transferring them to this new server.

    I'd imagine for the first week it will be pretty dead, but we will have ads during this, so expect even traffic on both servers.
