    Greetings all.

    We're back to the weekly updates schedule and this week we've got a lot of fantastic changes to present. First of all, we are pleased that you guys are thrilled with the new server-only ranks. It has taken a lot of effort to get them right and ensure that they are fully compatible across the network.

    [​IMG]
    In order to maintain a competitive and fair economy on Skyblock, we've spent several days working on an algorithm to allow new players to invest and grow whilst allowing harsh challenges for rich players to maintain their positions. We decided it would be the in server's interest to distribute this wealth and encourage new players to take risks - a good chunk of the taxes collected would be put into the lottery pot daily.

    Tax brackets:
    • $0 to $500,000: 0.05%
    • $500,000 to $5,000,000: 0.1%
    • $5,000,000 to $25,000,000: 0.25%
    • $25,000,000 to $100,000,000: 0.5%
    • $100,000,000 and above: 0.75%
    These tax brackets are subject to change but its fair to say we are pretty pleased with them.

    Following the success of a easy-to-use /buy on Skyblock, we decided to begin rolling it out across the network. OPPrison has been fitted with this system - it displays the perks you get with each ranks in a clear readable fashion.

    We're happy to present that we are adding two new ranks in-between Architect and Judge. These ranks are called Supreme and Master!​

    [​IMG][​IMG]
    We have added these ranks due to inflation in the Architect and Apprentice levels. We found that some people were at Architect's skill level but were not quite ready to achieve Judge. These ranks should help level the playing field, meaning that skilled builders have more to work towards and achieve.​

    This is something that has been requested for a long time and I'm happy to say that it has finally been implemented! The premise of this is simple; join a game, get given a theme and build that theme to your best ability. Once time is up, each player will be able to vote on each other's builds. The winner will be whoever receives the highest number of positive votes!​

    [​IMG]
    Prizes are also given out for the top three contestants! They are listed below:
    • 1st Place: 5 Coins
    • 2nd Place: 4 Coins
    • 3rd Place: 3 Coins
    You may have noticed that the prizes above are issued in "coins" rather than "tokens". This is because we found that tokens were very tedious to obtain and not beneficial to Creative at all. So, everyone's balance has been set to 200 Coins, in hopes of a better economy.​

    [​IMG]

    We're pretty proud to release new mini-games! We decided to add these games to add some little touches of fun in Creative. It's also something to do when you're in need of coins! The games we added are Battleship, Gem Crush, and Sudoku.​

    I'm proud to say we have selected @xLockinq to be in charge of donations support - he has shown real commitment to the players. After launching the server only ranks, we heard your complaints that you didn't want to push out more money to obtain these luxuries therefore we've decided to allow you guys to take advantage of a limited time sale.

    For the next 2 weeks, we are allowing you to purchase the server-only ranks at a discount depending on your current global rank.
    • Premium: 10% off
    • Elite: 20% off
    • Superior: 30% off
    • King: 40% off
    • Emperor: 50% off
    To take advantage of this great deal, PM @xLockinq with your current username and your current rank. He will confirm it on our records and provide you with a voucher. If this voucher is not used by you within the 2 weeks, it will expire. If the voucher is used by another player, we will ban the player. It is only to be used to obtain a "rank up" per say, it is not used for trading or anything of the sort.

    WTF £315.95 for the highest rank on op fac as i said no kid is going to be able to save that much up in a reasonable amount of time this server is now officially shit now because of these server only ranks and also a breach of the MC eula it wasn't so bad before for a global rank but that is just major overkill Money begger and PAY TO WIN springs to mind

    Since most people only play one or two servers, then the specific ranks are much better, rather then causing inflation across the whole network.

    Yes I understand that I play on more than just one server creative,skywars,opfactions, make the prices more reasonable more like £150-200 not £300+ just think almost £1000 for just 3 servers I play no kid is going to be able to save that much within a reasonable amount of time it took me over a year just to save for what I have (off sale) that was over £200 ish
