    Announcing UNION MC: Prison 3.0

    Hello community!
    I'm writing this announcing that we'll be performing a prison revamp and reset by the 12th of August!
    This will result in all data being wiped, including plots, inventories, PVs, A-Z rank, prestiges... everything (excluding donor packages which I shall explain shortly)

    What time is the reset?
    The reset will be between 12 noon - 1pm on Friday the 12th of August. Delays may follow, however hopefully things go to plan this time.

    Why is this a good thing?
    Many users have been complaining about how they stand no chance against longer-playing users in PvP, ranking up, etc. A reset would be a viable solution in order for all users to start equally again.
    Not only does it reset stats, however opens up much more opportunities for us to improve the prison, such as adding new features, remove redundant ones, regain our old players, advertise the server and overall keep everything fresh and interesting.

    What can I expect?
    I won't be posting a whole changelog here yet, that'll be announced shortly before the reset. We wish to keep everything hyped.
    However you can expect the following:
    • A brand new spawn
    • A brand new set of A-Z mines
    • A brand new set of donor mines
    • Changes to store pricing
    • Changes to donor ranks
    • KoTH & PvP improvements
    • Much much more which will be revealed closer to the update
    Will I keep my donor ranks/items?
    This is a subject which is always delicate and many users have different views about this.
    Firstly, all users who have purchased donor ranks on Prison will receive their corresponding donor rank.
    Note: We are making changes to the donor ranks, however users will still receive the equivalent to what they have paid for.
    Morphs will be removed entirely as they haven't had any sales in months. We feel this is our best option as they also pose as a huge unfair advantage in PvP.

    We won't be adding Personal Mines after we reset, hence these won't be reimbursed. We may try find other ways to refund players for these purchases. This decision was made in order to keep the economy sane.
    (They may be reintroduced in the future, and users could have them reimbursed that way)

    Zeus and Apollo pickaxes will be severely nerfed (Sheet cooldown, fortune amount). We apologise for users who have also purchased these premium items (and we greatly appreciate your support for Union MC), however we have plans to give buyers these [adjusted] items 2-4 weeks after we reset (to ensure the economy is stable before we start introducing more OP pickaxes.

    1-time-use items like spawners, tokens, crate keys etc will not be carried over into Union MC 3.0

    Users who have changed their name after purchasing may not receive their items! We will be manually sorting this once we reset through thread submissions in the Purchase Help category.


    What can I do from now to the reset?
    We understand players may see no incentive to play currently, however on Wednesday the 10th of August we will be enabling PvP in the plotworld until the reset commences.
    You could gear up, build bases, traps, etc.
    (We may also consider enabling TnT damage in plots and spawn)
    All users will have access to /kit Immortal in order to PvP

    Well it is sad to say but prisons needed a reset. I know that people will be upset with this decision but I think it will be worth it in the end.

    I can't believe your actually doing this... **** my time getting prestige 10. Sure New updates I get it, but this time I'm not going to like this reset particularly. The only thing I will like is this Damn economy fix.

    BUT,

    I will tell the truth. The server is trashy right now and deserves this update. LETS DO THIS THING

    So what you are saying here is that I will not get my immortal rank just because I had a different name when i bought it...

    What about event items such as xmas or halloween? Or other limited crates. I forgot if there were any.


    What I find rediculous is that some people spent ALOT on stuff within these items stated. It would have been a huge waste of money if they are gonna lose everything they got from it.


    ALSO. One small thing. Tags?

    You'll get the items, just not automatically. We'll have to do it ourselves
    We may be refunding those collector items however we're not sure as of yet.

    Which items? Ones you paid for?
    You'll get your ranks automatically when you log in to the new server. (Unless you changed your name, we'll need to do it for you)

    We might release the plotworld for you to explore.
    I doubt we'd release the mines and spawn as people would use them for their own servers lol.
    We may also do timecapsule events where we go back 2.0

    Speaking of time capsule, destroy the middle of spawn and place chests where we can write books with a message or something xD
    As for tags, aaron's up to something :D
