Recently, @JonNub and I have been working hard on two more server resets, Skyblock and Freelance!
I'm really excited to present Skyblock to you. It's the first server I've made entirely on my own, and I think it's a big improvement from our current version. It features 35 new challenges, 8 new custom enchants, and 9 different starter islands for you to choose from! There will be 3 new mob arenas, a new pvp arena, and a new spawn as well. Due to popular interest, I have added ore generators to Skyblock too. Global ranks and SkyOverlord/SkyBoss have increasingly higher chances of getting valuable ores. Any Skyblock ranks below that have chances equivalent to Swabbie.
The Freelance reset will present several new features and many bug fixes, including a fix for broken plot merging. Hopefully it'll increase activity on the server!
We have tentatively set a release date as next Saturday,...
"NOOOOOOOOO NIKKKK" "PLZ NO RESET" "PLZZZZZZ". Sorry fam, it's time for a reset. Though we will get these reactions throughout the weekend, most of you wanted resets on these servers for many reasons. Over inflated economies, destroyed worlds, and how over powered the servers were becoming. We've been working very hard on these new servers to ensure a long lifespan of competition. These two servers will reset February 4, 2017 at 7 AM EST.
A couple things to note about factions: TNT will be disabled for the first week so allow everyone to build bases, all players will have permissions to fly in there bases, the shop will be entirely GUI based, and the spawn is swag.
A nice, fresh new map and spawn, new crates, leaderboards for almost everything you can think of, everyone can buy large amounts of claim blocks, pvp arena, wall shop, and more. We are not resetting TOWNY! Been hearing this from a lot of...
Today we released a brand new gamemode called Trenches. @Jonthespartan29 has been working very hard these last few days to create a pretty awesome game. Trenches is a Red vs Blue game. The first team to 150 kills wins. This has been a super fun game so far and a lot of you have been enjoying it. Every kill you will receive one token, in which you can use in the in-game chest shop to purchase explosives, better gear, and more! Please report any bugs or suggestions for the gamemode on this thread and we will highly consider adding/fixing!
During our birthday week, I noticed how much everyone loved the Team SkyWars events, so we've decided to make them a regular thing!
When: Every single Saturday at 1 PM Eastern Standard Time. Why: Uh, you love it. Who: 100 player limit per weekend. How: Come to the lobby 10 minutes before the game. Use /signup
PRIZE: Rank Upgrade for the last people alive!
Yes, that's right, a free rank upgrade to the last people standing! This will be an automated tournament, with staff moderating player activity including hacking and any other rule breaking while in game. We've implemented a NoCheat system as well to ensure a fair tournament! If this goes well, we may extend this to two tournaments per week or have larger slot capacity. Thanks for your support everyone!
Today was a special day for ParadiseMC, as we turned 5 years old. Back in 2012, I would have never thought that ParadiseMC would grow to be one of the largest, and one of the best minecraft communities around. You've all truly inspired me and made this network what it is today. During our live event, the community gathered to celebrate. We did a few giveaways of coupon codes and tshirts. It was a lot of fun, even when I died in the first five seconds of every skywars round (click here if you want to see what happened lol).
We've decided to extend the sale into the weekend for 75% off almost everything. Make sure you check out the store before it ends.
Last but not least, I put together a small thank you video... I know it doesn't mean much but I appreciate each and every one of you. I hope you all have a fantastic rest of your day,...
Hellooooo everyone! This Thursday is a very special day for Paradise - it's our 5th birthday!
On January 12, 2012, @SaintNickGamez founded the server we all know and love. It's crazy that it's been 5 years already, and we're going to celebrate with a party!
At about 6:30pm EST* on the 12th, we're going to be doing a staff stream. We'll be playing Skywars with all of you guys, and there will be a special giveaway too! There will be an exclusive one-day 75% off sale, as well. So clear your schedules and join us for an evening of fun!
The stream and a special thank-you video will be held/posted on Nick's channel, so stay tuned! Announcements in-game will tell you when the stream is starting.
In preparation for this event, we are also selling limited edition paradise shirts to celebrate the birth of ParadiseMC! Below are a front and back example of what the long...
Hey guys. Today, I'm sure you've noticed that our servers have been experiencing quite a lot more downtime than usual. This is due to corruption of some of the player data files. Anyone who was online around 4:30pm EST/1:30pmPST/10:30pm GMT probably has experienced some degree of data loss on Skyblock and/or Survival, such as lost balances, lost sethomes, or lost island ownership.
The Essentials data (balances, sethomes) is not able to be restored, and so those affected will have lost those permanently. Our deepest apologies about that
Island ownership was able to be restored, to a point. If you had any banned users on your island, or any members on your island other than you, they were likely removed. Also, your challenges may have been reset. Only about 50 players lost their islands, though, so it may not have affected you! If your island is still missing, please comment (include your username!) or message a...
Hey everyone! Welcome to 2017, and I hope you had a great New Year's! I have some good news and some bad news. In case you're feeling really optimistic about 2017 and don't want anything to ruin your mood, I put the bad news in a spoiler box.
We have a new CnR map! It's larger than the one before, but not nearly as complicated. Global ranks each have their own offices, which have different themes. Overall, it's a huge improvement from the last map we had. Check it out sometime!
Also, we reverted to the KitPvP map from 2 resets ago, the volcano map. Players seemed to like that one a lot better, since the cherry blossom one we were using ended up being pretty laggy. It was pretty, though. So hopefully you all can enjoy KitPvP a lot more now!
One last thing - today is the last day to enter the rank giveaway! I will be choosing the winner via a random...
Hey everyone! I hope you're all enjoying your break from school or work, if you get one. Hopefully you haven't turned into an ice cube yet! (I have :c)
I'd like to take the time to wish you all a happy holiday season on behalf of the staff team here at PMC. We hope you have a good time with your family and friends.
I would also like to thank each and every one of you for a wonderful year. I'm excited for what 2017 will bring to paradise, and I hope you are too! Our team isn't perfect, myself included, but I can say that I'm proud of the improvements we've made this year. We still have a long way to go, but thank you for sticking with us as long as you have.
To the staff, thank you for dealing with me as your manager. I hope you haven't thought of punching me in the face more than once. I'm proud to be the leader of the team and I hope you all are as proud to represent PMC as I am.
If you celebrate Christmas, comment what you want the most this year! If you...
Sorry everyone, but the event has been pushed back to tomorrow, December 18th, at 1:30pm EST. Some last minute failures on our end caused us not to be ready on time, and for that I apologize. Hopefully you're all still able to attend!
