Hey all! Time for an update.

Good to see some fresh faces pop up on the server logs! Sorry I can’t meet most of you in person yet. I work a night shift so I’m sleeping when most of you are playing.

Anywho

The chaos server will happen in the next week. The map will be up for 30 days and then wiped clean, including your items.

McMMO will be turned on and your stats will be carried over. (Note: Anytime we enable McMMO it shares your stats across all servers.) We’re going to get MobArena setup on the survival world so you can powerlevel your combat skills before diving into chaos.

In Other News..

I’m sure we’ve all heard our online privacy just got shot to shit by the U.S. government. While I’m livid, it was only a matter of time.

Something I’ve always wanted to do is setup a VPN for me and my friends to hide what we could. Well, it’s about time I make good on that.

Patreon donators who pledge $5 or more will get access to our own VPN network. This means you’ll be able to surf the internet without your home ISP invading on your privacy. There will be some restrictions to make sure no one abuses it. We only have so much bandwidth to go around.

More details will come later and I’ll update the Patreon page to reflect this change.

The Boat Got Bigger

Due to popular demand and a couple kind donators we are moving again. This time it isn’t a little upgrade or chasing a better deal. In the next couple days we will be moving to a fully dedicated bare-metal server!

What does this mean? Usually with game hosting you’re sharing a server with multiple people. If one too many people start hammering on the server it slows everyone else down. But we’re renting our own server that we don’t have to share with anyone! The possibilities are literally endless now.

For you computer nerds here are the specs:

CPU: Intel Xeon  E3-1240 (Ivy Bridge) @ 3.4GHz
Motherboard: SuperMicro X10SLM-F
Memory: 32GB DDR3 ECC
Hard Disks: 2x120GB SSD drives (RAID 1 I believe)
Uplink:  1GBps
Location: Buffalo, NY

The move is scheduled to be completed this evening (3/4).
