We have decided to add an arena FFA server, capped at only 20 players at the end of our server compass on datpixel. FFA is one big arena with constant pvp and respawning. The unique idea behind this is it's fully automated to change kits every few hours to appeal to everyone's liking (randomly). It also features a full ELO (scoring) system based on your kill to death ratio as featured on most competitive pvp servers. This server is full out pvp (no teaming, will be moderated) and will be considered our first hardcore competitive pvp based server. We will be adding this Saturday night.

@ItemMeta is our bug fixer upper and new content manager! We will be posting a changelog whenever there's more than around 5 updates and it will appear on our front page just like announcements. This means we will be listening to you guys and finally making some bug fixing changes.

Saturday Stream & Events
Saturday is the biggest advertising DatPixel has ever done. The best part about this stream is it marks the beginning of our summer advertising; you're going to see quite the amount of YouTubers on these next few months. There will be three somewhat known YouTubers (HeyImBee, StrauberryJam, PecketPlays) and their manager who will be creating a new channel with them. They will be going from some of our servers doing events and some game-play. If all goes well, they will return. They will be doing a survival drop-party guaranteed with 3 King & 2 Hero ranks (plus many great perks) given out. We will be expecting a MASSIVE overload of players (don't worry, we have the lag covered), with max slots at 1000. We are prepared for servers to...

Today we have come to the conclusion we will be hosting a public building event after realizing the amazing builders we have. Fifteen MAX people will be selected for this and must be very active (at least 2 hours a day). This event will go on for 1 week after we begin on a private datpixel hosted server with creative mode, worldedit, and voxelsniper.

Please leave us your homes, warps, and pictures of your best builds below. Please also let us know what you're good at in building (interior, exterior, all-around) and your favorite themes (forest, modern, medieval).

Don't fake anything. Be totally honest. We will check intensely and accept only those who are honest. Good luck to all!

Builders receive: Heads on the build as credit and perks in our store.

What staff is like now
There are many players that have been banned improperly, dislike the immaturity of our staff, and some that have even left for various reasons due to specific staff members. Since I have joined DatPixel last month, and quite frankly I'm here to make this a better place, we have to start at making staff better at their job so DatPixel can be fully operational for the player to enjoy their experience to the highest extent.

Some of you may be asking yourselves "Well, irLaz, aren't you a pretty bad role model in-game yourself?" The answer is yes. I think we can all agree a vast majority of the staff here at DatPixel, including administration, likes to purely fool around to the point players don't find it funny at all. This is all going to end, and it is going to end rapidly so we can begin making DatPixel a better and more professional server.

Staff training is going to be a vigorous, multi-step, and boot camp-like server for all...

Hello everyone,

This post is to let everyone know we have been unblocked by Mojang!

We would like to thank Mojang for their speedy resolution and attention to our blacklist. You are now able to join our network with 1.9.2 or lower, and we will be updating to 1.9.4 later today. :)

Why you cannot connect/Introduction
Some of you had seen that we recently announced Mojang has blocked us from letting users join. This is because of the noncompliance towards the EULA, which is now enforced and required to agree upon on behalf of having a server.

This is our faults, and with full responsibility taken, we have hit some bumps. Not to mention how this hurt our release towards Factions and Skyblock resets, but we now have to change a lot of the gameplay to fit all users equally, (non cosmetically, or perks that have an effect upon game play). This will now be done this week, and until then our shop shall remain closed.

When we will be back up (accessible via regular Minecraft)/Store & Game play Changes
Quite frankly, we aren't sure when you will be able to play (the exact date). Although, Mojang said in a "few" days, we...

Over the past month, 32 servers including DatPixel have been contacted by Mojang requesting them to comply with the EULA.

What is the EULA?
The EULA is essentially a document created by Mojang that sets out rules and guidelines for what servers can and cannot sell in their store. Specifically, Mojang only allows the selling of cosmetics, and non game-changing donor perks.

What steps is DatPixel doing?
This week, we will be releasing three new global ranks. These ranks are King, Royal, and Hero. You are able to use these ranks across all servers, and are fully EULA compliant. Players who have donor ranks already (such as Legend, VIP, or Myth) will keep their current ranks as is. However, future donors will be unable to purchase these "Legacy" ranks in our store once we make the switch.

Will I lose my rank? Will things reset?
Nope! Once we release these new ranks, you the player will be able to use your Legacy rank, and your global EULA compliant rank...

Introduction (Who am I?)
Let's begin this massive update off with a basic as to who I am. Some of you may know there was a server named Lazle, a Skyblock server run under DatPixel, which was owned by me and redfrosting since late 2015. This server is the reason me and redfrosting had met each other, and well, upon that we worked out a deal to do a partnership on it. Prior to that, we became really good friends and we both came to the conclusion I'll be joining DatPixel. This position will include management among the network, new advertising, and as an overall right-hand-man to redfrosting. This means massive updates and merging between the two networks (Lazle).

This marks the future of DatPixel; we're doing updates now daily and events more often. We will be redoing many configurations and updating the server to the best of...
