    As of what i heard, Mojang started blacklisting servers starting from 1.9.3 , i'm guessing HC could be one of them, what will HC do about this?

    I think they are not blacklisting servers that are fresh or new orr if we can manage the server to be a little bit stable (old I mean like servers that date back to 2011-2014)

    As of 1.9.3-pre2 there are around 23 servers in the blacklist, Hollandcraft isn't blocked yet.
    But i am pretty sure they will put more servers in the blacklist sooner or later.

    If Hollandcraft gets put on the blacklist, we will most likely stay below 1.9.3 or someone must be creative enough to still make the ranks worth the money without breaking the rules of EULA.

    If you are curious about whether the server is blocked you can use this website:

    The suspense was killing me XD ... The thing that violates the EULA is the pay 2 win servers (i mean like you have to buy stuff in real money to win)

    So your saying Hollandcraft Will Die? ;-; But the most "pay2win" rank here is probably... All the Max Ranks? Like MVP+, Emperor, and Ultra. I would like to see HC flourish on within a few years. So that we can try newer versions of Mc on the server with amazing plugins. I don't want to see my favorite server die, please consider the EULA.

    The decision is yet to be made by @MichelDeStar about what will happen, but again we are not on the blacklist as of pre2 so no worries for now :).

    I never believe Mojang would build such thing inside their clients, probably it's just a test. If this isn't a test, only the large servers will continue because of their sponsorship's with large companies and their solid player base who are willing to pay for some cosmetics.

    Many minecraft servers are based on sort of pay2win, if you pay for a rank, you get a little easier gameplay, and so it becomes more appealing for a player to buy a rank. Servers can't grow with the principe of selling some cosmetics.

    However I can understand the choice of Mojang for adding an EULA to the game, several servers were, and still are, selling ranks for a few hundreds of euros, and after a few months they quit and have earned massive amounts of money.

    Hollandcraft won't die because of this, definitely not. Hollandcraft isn't on the black list (yet), but we won't comply with the EULA.

    We'll see what will happen, but Mojang can expect some resistance from the server owners. But still it's their game, and they can decide what to do with it. Look at Blizzard, they are suing some private servers from their game for not being EULA compliant.

    HC is still fun as always. But plugins will start getting outdated maybe if we stay on one version.

    I think michel will announce in the forums if hc is dead cus I read reddit mojang will send an email to the owner to let them know that their server will be terminate.Also I think that the "blacklisted servers are also blacklisted in older versions" thing is still a possibillity...... Also the blacklist will NEVER stop blacklisting more servers. ;-;

    Some servers were smart enough to avoid the blacklist is they did cosmetics you know like boosts and gadgets.... So HC has a chance if we add cosmetics and removing some pay2win stuff
    (its what I heard)

    It's not just pay 2 win stuff, ALL stuff that enhances the gameplay for money (even giving extra choises like balanced kits, extra plots etc) are NOT allowed
