    Hey everyone,

    I ran a small poll on Survival today where we gauged the interests of what new servers or gametypes you want to see on the network. The winning results:
    • Economy survival (52% voted)
    • Skywars (42% voted)
    • HCF (3% voted)
    • Skyblock revamp (3% voted)
    And that's a winner for economy survival and skywars! Skywars will basically be more of a reboot from our past skywars setup, with the major changes being teamed skywars, spectating, parties, chest refilling, massively improved kits, map voting, etc. We'll be sure to make it insanely additive and fun as it always was :)

    As for economy survival, as the name suggests it is your oldschool SMP survival server with Towny, jobs, player markets, and everything you'd come to expect from an economy survival server. As a past owner of a survival server for nearly 2 years (2011-2013) we'd be sure to make it an awesome experience.

    This would essentially be a secondary Survival server on our network, when you join the portal in the hub you would get a GUI where you can select between joining roleplay survival (our current one) or economy survival.

    I look forward to bringing these gametypes to the network, we have some big advertisements underway :D

    Skywars would also be cool if you could include like achievements one must complete, and after each is completed, you get prizes such as more points that may be spent on in-game kits. Etc.

    I'll be the one to ask the most important questions:
    -Estimated time for release?
    -Ranks return to buyers for skywars?

    Since the release is in a short(ish) amount of time;
    Do you plan ahead and hope for the voting to aim for the server(s) you've already built/working on?
    Or have builders that are fast enough to build within that time period?
    Sorry for all the questions, been curious about this
    :p

    Our builders have once done 2 spawns with 18 hours notice to the deadline (current creative + skyblock spawn), 1 week is nothing to them :p

    Our current hub was done in 48h

    I build for an hour or two, get discourage when I have to leave, then wait forever to return...
    Once I return, and complete a significant amount, I always stop and never work on it again .-.

    Economy Survival ( aka Towny) ≠ Roleplay survival

    New set of ranks (ranks from Survival do not transfer)

    Nope. Since this is economy survival, the economy itself will be heavily controlled.

    Dang it! I was sorta hoping we could have a rank that would carry over to both of these servers. Also will the prison server get its changes and stuff added before the new servers are brought in?
