At long last, Survival has been reset! Here's what's new:

New spawn map and warp locations

    • [​IMG]
    • Re-enabled oceans but reduced how often they generate
    • Public mob farms (2 separate farms)
    • Public enchanting and anvil station
    • Tutorial sections
Player Warps
    • Players can now set warp locations to their claims with the command: /pwarp set
    • This will cost you $5,000 and add your warp to a public warps NPC at spawn or with the /pwarps command.

As you all know, I've been fairly inactive lately. It's been a rough couple of months with regards to server activity and I apologize for leaving you all in the dark. Many of you probably saw this coming: I am resigning as owner of Minelink and Origin effective immediately.

The first thing I want to say is: don't panic. I am not leaving. I am just not going to be the owner anymore. I will be remaining on board as a full-time developer working for the new owner, @Aigar.

I am resigning as owner because I can't do everything on my own. We are small networks with very limited resources and it's hard for me to manage every aspect of the server and shoulder the burden of developing new content as well.

Aigar runs a network known as DREAM-MC, some of you may even know him from MineHeroes under a different name. I've worked with him in the past and he is the only person I trust to carry us in the right direction.

For the last couple of weeks I've been teasing you all about the new upcoming ranks. Now I'm proud to release them to you and I wanted to take this opportunity to go over them and explain the idea around adding these new ranks.

The following new ranks have been added to both the Buycraft store and in-game crates:
  • Skirmisher
  • Duelist
  • Predator
  • Juggernaut
  • Conqueror
  • Warlord
These ranks are specific to the factions server and do not transfer to the cannon server.

The intended design of these new ranks is to provide more utility for factions players at a lower cost than the global ranks. The amount of homes, vault rows and the quality of kits are all increased by comparison.

All of your homes and vault rows will...

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

No, no. Not that time of the map. It's time for ChanchoBowl XIV, or the fourteenth 1v1 tournament that I've hosted. I've been hosting these tournaments for nearly three years. In those three years, 206 participants have been in ChanchoBowl. 9 of those participants have won one or more tournaments.

Any players that want to be in this tournament can enter. The participant limit is 64 players. Do not enter on two accounts. Doing so will result in both accounts being disqualified. I supply the kit. As with every tournament, we have a custom arena made by our WONDERFUL build team. @Sav made this tournament's arena. Unlike last tournament, mcMMO will be disabled. ChanchoBowl usually lasts a few days, so don't expect it to be done in a few hours.

It starts at 6:00 pm EST on Saturday 9/30.
If this time doesn't work for you, since you're in a different timezone or have complications, there will still be some...
