    Dear players,

    After some time working on the server, we finally have some news to share with all of you.

    We have been working very hard last week on updating and finishing the different gamemodes, and we want to announce which gamemodes will immediately update to 1.10. And which gamemodes will be left behind for a while. The following gamemodes will be available immediately when the update has been released: Creative, Survival, Skyblock, Factions, Skywars, KitPvP and Hide and Seek.

    We are aware that Survival Games, Escape from the Beast and Prison won't be released instantly. We are making sure that Prison and Survival Games will be available in a foreseeable period of time, with Prison coming first and then Survival Games. Escape from the Beast won't be making a return, since we have -in our opinion- a much more enjoyable gamemode available to us, and will be releasing that one first. Also, there is no functioning Escape from the Beast 1.10 plugin available, so we would have to develop something ourselves.

    If we wanted to update these gamemodes as well, we would have to stall the update even more, which we don't want at all.

    RESET
    The gamemode-servers Creative, Survival and Factions, will get a complete reset, but Skyblock WON'T. This won't matter too much for Factions, since many of our players found that this gamemode was configured poorly, and we hope that this update will solve all of those problems. Creative is one of the oldest servers still available, and that's only because of the fact that it has been working almost perfectly for almost 2 years, but it hasn't received many updates in those 2 years, so it is quite behind on the latest and greatest. Also, there's a much better plot management system plugin, which gives players much more options and freedom. For donators was Creative always a bit on the boring side, WorldEdit and more plots. This update will fix that too, and more donator exclusive features will be available.
    All of our minigame-servers will be reset. We have built every single one of them from scratch for 1.10, with the new style and many more new features. KitPvP has been fully rebuilt with a new map, Skywars is renewed with new maps and new functions, and that's just the tip of the iceberg. We have made the minigames more interactive with each other, so the minigames will all be complimenting each other, and there's a new shared economy system, so that you could use your Coins that you earned by winning a game in Skywars for kits in KitPvP or perks in Hide and Seek, same way around.

    NAMES

    Creative, Survival, Factions en Skyblock will be named 'Gamemodes' instead of 'Regular'. Skywars, KitPvP, Hide and Seek, Survival Games et cetera will be called 'Minigames' instead of the current name 'Arcade'. Prison is not part of this, and will be named 'Prison'.

    RANKS
    All current ranks will remain the same, but will be better configured than ever before, with many new permissions added. At release, the categories Gamemodes and Minigames will be available, and the Minigame ranks will be also used for features in the lobbies, like your rank name in front of your username.
    We are aware that people have bought a Prison rank, and won't be useable on release. This is very annoying, and we understand, so that's why we will release this gamemode as soon as possible, this is our highest priority after the release. This category won't be available in the Store, until we have released Prison.

    RELEASE
    We need to finish up a few more things this week, all gamemodes we mentioned before are ready, they only need to be set in sync together. The current server also needs to be offline for a while to complete the update, this will probably be one day from the morning until we are done.

    The release will take place the weekend of 8 and 9 October, this will be in line with our 5 year anniversary. If the update will be going as we planned, we will most certainly hold a giveaway, sale, or something else.

    Kind regards,
    Michel

    Will prison still be joinable on 1.8 or is the lobby only 1.10 compatible?

    The server will be 1.10 only, so there is no Prison version 1.8 I'm afraid.

    No compatibility for 1.8-1.10 in the lobby? Like there is now, you will be able to join with 1.9 only in the lobby.

    The whole server will be 1.10. If we wanted to have 1.8-1.10 support, a lot of features would have to be dropped. :/

    I really mean this: http://prntscr.com/cq9sq4

    I can join with 1.9 but every server is outdated.

    So if the 1.10 server is released and the 1.10 lobby is compatible with 1.8 you can join prison :)

    We understand, and will be put in consideration, but don't expect much since we are building the new lobby on 1.10, so that means that we have to rebuild it for 1.8. :p

    I don't know why, but I can already feel the lag I'll have in the lobbies. Putting that aside, I'm very excited for all the new features and general style this update gives to the server! I hope everything will go well with the timing, you already know people don't like to wait!

    Is TNT allowed in the new factions? And spawners? Or is it a secret and do we have to wait till this weekend? And is there an Halloween sale coming?

    Like you already said, we won't give any other information than that has already been given in the first topic about the 1.10 update.
    I can tell you there will happen something at our 5 year anniversary.
