Before I get right into it, let me introduce myself. I'm Evadez, I've been with MineSuperior on and off since launch. At one time I became OPPrison Manager until I resigned and recently returned as a network developer, or plugin creator in simpler terms. I'm not new by any means.
Now for the meat of this post. Many of you long-time players remember paintball v1 either from RMC or from when it was on MineSuperior not too long ago. I'm here to tell you that Paintball is returning, in a re imagined form with hundreds of new features and improvements as well as a new feature-filled, dynamic map.
I know many of you probably are looking for a feature list. There isn't one. That's intentional, one of the reasons I'm making this post is to see what you want to see in paintball v2.
Q - What's the release date?
A - There currently isn't one.
Q - How Long will it take?
If you haven't been living under a rock, you may of noticed something. We've been going into maintenance mode (Or just going offline entirely) a lot of as recently.
This has resulted in several rumors being created that simply aren't true. So I'm making this post to explain why're going offline so much.
Over the last few months, this network has been slowly turning into a hacker infested network. And it's now starting to effect the staff team, literally...
To this point, we've had over 100 staff compromised. This is absolutely insane compared to other networks who only deal with 1-2 compromises a year with over 10+K players. We literally have 1-2 staff compromised everyday.
This has forced me to put the network into maintenance mode to prevent user data from being leaked and random players from being banned. And we plan on being maintenance mode for the majority of the night as well.
What are we doing you might be...
To start off with I wanna talk about support. Support is a pretty broad subject that can cover donation errors or just wanting to complain about something. We encourage users to use our forums, however you will not always get a quick response, if at all. With that said though you can contact our Twitter @MineSuperior for quick support. I myself have access to it as well as Ryan (TitanicFreak). Most of the time I will respond and responses are usually within 24 hours. Also, just in general we post small updates and milestones there so you can keep up to date.
Secondly, approximately 5 months ago (5-26-16) we did a survey to get some feedback from you guys and it's time for round two. We are doing the survey again with slightly different questions so we can see whether we have improved or not. All answers are anonymous so try to be as truthful as possible. Answering the survey will help us...
Wow, the summer has gone by fast! It seems like just yesterday the summer breaks from school started, but alas they've come to an end. However, I think this post may appease your back-to-school gloom for a bit because I'm here to announce the Opening of the Bending Server! You will no longer need a pass to login to the server and you can play for free! Some people have already taken use of the short open beta we held to help test things out at the last minute, but tomorrow ( August 28th ) we'll be launching the official opening of the bending server at 9:00 AM EST!
Now, before you start asking questions, please read through this short Q/A that will explain all the questions I could think of that you might have:
- Do we get to keep our donor ranks?
- Yes! Of course you can keep your donor ranks, and we already have several...
Today I'm here to announce a very awesome thing, we are adding a new game type to the network! We know it's been a while since we've released completely new content and we've heard your requests, so here it is! We're adding an gamemode called bending! On the bending server you can control the elements and battle with them.
However, unlike most server launches we're doing things a bit different this time. The server will be launched in a closed beta. What does this mean? Well, for the first two weeks you can log onto the server only if you've purchased a Beta Pass on the store. A beta pass will allow you to join the server while it is in beta, help us find bugs, and get to meet the staff and management team while we work to get the server ready for official launch....
You can now duel players now on KitPvP by simply typing the command /duel (IGN of the player you want to duel). You can accept/deny duels from other players by doing /duel [accept/deny] (IGN of the player dueling you). If players are spamming you, or you simply do not want to duel, you can toggle request by doing /toggle. If there is any bugs involving the dueling system, please post it on the forums.
For some other little info, the crates system and menu system are still being worked on. I am not happy with the way the crates system is turning out and i'm still trying to find the perfect way to use them without ruining the gameplay. On another note, here are some features the /menu system will have:
- Clickable warps (simply takes you to a warp instead of typing it out...
However it hasn't been easy, OPPrison v3 also turned out to be one of the most demanding servers on the network. Hitting upwards of 80% CPU during peak hours, which you can see below,
This is what has been plaguing us for the past week, and we're relieved that it is now solved. As you can quite easily see below when we did actually solve it,
That is a 65% cpu reduction, which has basically made OPPrison entirely lag free even with 130 players now. However this does mean one thing. We can host drop parties again.
So that is exactly what we're going to do. We're hosting a drop party on OPPrison tomorrow @ 4PM EDT (1PM PDT and like 8PM for the british) to test out the new optimizations. And...
This is just a quick announcement regarding some server maintenance.
Starting 9PM (EST) on July 2nd, we'll be taking Skyblock offline for bug fixes & updates. This process should take no longer than 2-3 hours, and should introduce some awesome new content we know you've been waiting for for a while.
Regarding this update, we have created a server feedback thread, which can be found by clicking here. In case there's anything you'd like to share with us, please don't hesitate to let us know and we'll look into your request!
All ranks were reset, including donator ranks. This means when you first login, you may not have your donator rank.
Getting this resolved has been streamlined for OPPrison v3's launch. In order to get your rank back, you simply go this page, http://store.minesuperior.com/category/709748, and repurchase your rank for free.
For example, if you bought Superior in the past 2 years, you simply purchase the "Superior Return" for free and when you next login to OPPrison. You will have your Superior rank.
We strongly recommend doing this before you login into OPPrison v3 later today, so you will have all your perks available to you instantly.
I should note that staff will not help you in regards to your donator rank, they will simply link you this thread.
With all that said, OPPrison v3 is still...
Dropping from ~200 players average all the way to 20~ players average. That has sent a clear message to us, and that message is that change is needed. A change in the direction of OPPrison v1.
And that's what OPPrison v3 is about. A compromise between OPPrison v1's stupidity and opness and OPPrison v2's stability and professionalism.
And with that said, here's a small changelog,
- Readded Vote Parties
- Readded mcMMO
- Readded OPPrison v1's economy (Prestiges, sell prices, multipliers, etc)
- Readded /pay
- Readded chestshop
- Readded Events (Yes drop parties are coming back)
- Created 5,000 bugs then fixed 5,000 bugs.
As you can clearly see, this is quite a drastic change, and thus we will be holding a private beta over the weekend to make sure we OPPrison v3 is what people actually want.
