Hello Blockdrop!

I hope everyone has had an amazing Christmas and new year. I am looking forward to an amazing 2018 on Blockdrop and I'm sure a lot of others feel the same!

Some of you may have noticed that Factions and City Life have been offline tonight, this has been caused by a hard drive fault on the actual server that these game modes are on. The hard drive corrupted and I have been awake all night trying to save the data (it is now 5 am for me right now). Obviously this is not something that could have been avoided. It is just bad luck that it happened to us but I will do the best I can to minimise the damage.

I managed to recover most of the factions data apart from some parts of the world map and some data about the members of different factions. For this reason I will have to reset the map and faction data. This will mean that you will need to build a new base and make a new faction again but it also means that any enderchest items and any balance will be kept. I tried really hard with the inventories an enderchests because I know this is where people keep their most important items and I'm pleased to say that these have been saved!

Obviously this isn't ideal and I wish it didn't have to happen but these kinds of problems can strike against anyone at any time, it is just 1 of the risks with computers. I hope that what I have managed to save will still be fun for everyone.

Factions is back up right now and city life will be up within around 1 hour hopefully.

Thanks for reading. If you have any issues with any donations that have been effected by this partial reset then please pm me on here and I will help you.


Hello Blockdrop!

Just a quick update to wish everyone a Merry Christmas!

I hope everyone has an amazing Christmas and gets everything that they want and I'm looking forward to another amazing year of Blockdrop!


Hello Blockdrop!

I am excited to announce that our main game mode is about to revamp!

This Friday December 1st Factions will re-launch!

We have amazing upgrades for factions, including:
- KoTH (king of the kill)
- Envoy drops
- A whole new and improved factions plugin
- Withdraw XP
- Bounties
- Updates to the way cannons work, we will be using the 1.7/1.8 system that people love so much.

We also kept a lot of things the same so don’t worry about it all being different. The aim was to keep it similar and keep all the things that work, but to also add in a bunch of new and exiting things that people would love and I think we got that mix perfectly right. I can’t wait to see what everyone thinks of it.

This of course means a reset. I know some people do not like resets and this is why I make each re-launch so much better than the last but please remember that this is just how Minecraft servers work. It is not possible to go on for ever and every server has to reset. You may notice that on Blockdrop I keep the time between resets as long as possible. Some things won’t reset and this includes ranks. Donator ranks are guaranteed for life but for this reset we decided to also let the in game ranks stay. In game rank data will be taken from TODAY. This is to stop people from spamming all of their remaining money into ranking up really high before the revamp. So any of the free /rankup ranks purchased with in game money after today will not be transferred to the revamp.

All ranks will be re-sent. All factions powerboosts will also be re-sent. The powerboosts may take a few days to get re-added so please bear with us. Any extra things (like fly commands, or the builder kit) are considered permanent and will also be re-sent. Normally Minecraft servers do not resend temporary donator items such as crate keys but I think it is unfair if people do not have long to use their rewards so I will be re-sending any Donator crate keys that have been purchased within 1 week of the reset. This does not apply to Premium keys as their rewards are permanent anyway.

On Thursday we will be marking the end of the current season with a purge. This means giving everyone in the gamemode access to force teleport to people. We will also be making a /kit purge available to help keep everyone equal during the purge.

I am so excited for everyone to see the new factions.
