Hello you wonderful people, I thought it was time for a small news update on what will
be happening over the next month if nothing blows up.
First off I want to start September off with a bang, and
what better way than adding 20 new kits to the Survival Games Servers (The name
and what they do will be posted below). They should be implemented along with a
few small updates within 48 hours. (Still not 1st of September, can’t
sue me bros)
The second major thing will be the addition of a new Mini Games server(s) by the end of
the month, I along with a few other talented staff members have been working on
this for a few weeks now and we are just finishing up a map and some final
As much as I would like to spill the beans on what it is, you guys will just
have to wait and see, I am sure you can
battle the need to know. Maybe throw around a ball with friends in a field
whilst you wait?
We will also be updating the spawn in Creative server, the new spawn will be a
little smaller but contain more area’s for you guys to PvP as well as a small
re-vamp of the Kit’s.
We also be increasing the plots everyone gets by 1.
As you may know, 1.8 is coming out soon, we would appreciate it if you guys did
not spam posts about when the network will be 1.8, we will update as soon as it
is possible. If we’re lucky there will be a 1.8 protocol patch within the first
48 hours, this will allow 1.8 clients to connect to the network but nothing 1.8
related will work.
There is no ETA on how long things will take to update, Mojang them self’s will
be apparently updating Bukkit to 1.8 this time.
I want to say a special thank you to our staff members, I appreciate
all their help as well as their tolerance to stay with the network through
thick and thin.
I also want to also say a special thank you to all the new and old VIP’s, we appreciate
that you continue to support the development of our network.
Last, but not least a special thanks to all you guys that play our network. It
means a lot to us that you’re here playing on our network and we hope you continue
to enjoy it.

[Network] All essentials user files have been wiped, so if you log in at the spawn and not where you logged out don't worry. The wipe was due to no longer needing the files due to a cross server eco. This may become a monthly thing. Although not truly a network update this effects all servers. (Will effect the /seen command to staff, instead go to the gateway server and use the authentication systems last login)

[Lobby] Changed a few settings to help with the crashes.
[Network] Added a new setting to help combat the proxy crashes caused buy the multiversion/1.7 update. You guys (The players are actually causing them due to no connection throttling in multiversion/1.7. This results in players somehow massively spamming their connections to the proxy until it can't handle any more (Talking 1000's (87k in 2 hours))) This is only a temp "fix" for the moment. We do apologize for the crashes.
