Hello!

I'm happy to announce a few promised updates here, as well as some new updates based on community feedback. Overall there's a lot of changes to take in, however, off the bat I want to regretfully say that Supply Drops are not a part of this update, but it is still being actively developed and will be coming soon. With that said, I'm proud to announce the following changes:
Castle
  • Neutralizing can now only be paused by the castle holder or capturer. This basically means that multiple factions can now be on the control point neutralizing it.
  • When a captured castle is being neutralized and the control point becomes empty, it slowly starts to re-capture itself. This automatic re-capture speed has been slowed in half. Instead, re-capturing will go faster if the castle holder is on the control point.
  • The warm-up duration when using...

Hello, Minelink! It's that time of the map!

No, no. Not that time of the map. It's time for ChanchoBowl XIII, or the 13th 1v1 tournament that I've hosted. Over the last 12 ChanchoBowls, 179 individual players have competed and only 8 of those players have ever won. ChanchoBowl XII was the biggest ChanchoBowl ever and I hope this one can be even bigger.

This tournament is for all players who want to be in it, but entering twice will result in disqualification of both of the accounts you enter with. The kit is supplied by me and the arena is in Warzone. The tournament has a limit of 64 players. ChanchoBowls typically last a few days, so don't expect it to be over within a few hours. To enter, leave your name below. Any comments on this thread that aren't either entries or questions will be DELETED.

When it starts: July 5 at 12:00 PM (noon) EST

Kit:
  • Protection IV diamond armor
  • Sharpness V diamond sword
  • Sharpness IV diamond axe
  • 1 20-minute Strength...

Hello Minelink!

It's been a week since Season 5 went live, I've been hard at work and having a lot of fun with the continuing development of this season and I hope everyone is enjoying it so far as much as I am ;)

Just so everyone knows, as with our past resets, this is about the time TNT gets enabled in the map. So, in keeping up with that tradition, TNT will be enabled starting at 4 PM EST TODAY.

The purpose of this post is to try and clarify some confusing aspects of this reset as well as reveal any unannounced changes that slipped through.

The Castle event finally went live yesterday and there's a bit of confusion surrounding the mechanics, so I'll start with a detailed explanation of how it works.

Castle

The Castle is an unending event that takes place in WarZone located at the south side of spawn. You can reach that side of spawn by teleporting with the command /warp castle. You...

Greetings, Minelink!

It's about that time again. Season 4 is finally over and now it's time to prepare for Season 5!

For information on Season 4 winners, please see the end of this post for details. As usual, leaders of the top 3 factions can reach out to admins over the forums for their rewards.

Minelink builders, admins and myself have been tirelessly working to bring you some awesome, major new changes for this upcoming season and we think you'll be pleased to hear just what sort of new things we have planned.

Before I go any further with this, I want to throw a shoutout to a few people in particular who have been especially engaged in Season 5's preparation and development.

Thanks to the following people:
