Hello Blockdrop!

As the people who have been here a while will know, I always think of this server as a community server. I think of myself more of a care-taker than the owner and I think of it as my job to make sure that the server runs how the general Blockdrop community would like it.

I have noticed a few people commenting on the anti-cheat and it not doing what its meant to do, so I decided to take action! I have done the following things:

  • - Ban lengths extended (1 Week, 2 Weeks & 1 Month)
  • - Watchdog now ip bans instead of normal bans
  • - Staff will be given extra powers to take care of hackers
  • - It will become an offence to use a VPN

We will also be soon adding anti-vpn software that will auto ban people who use a vpn instantly. This is to stop people ban evading.

I hope that this is the crack down on hackers that everyone was hoping for. I think we will soon be one of the least hack-friendly servers.

Also: Some may have noticed that City Prisons has now been removed from the selector. The reason for this was that it is not a popular server. We have a lot of new people joining Blockdrop and we want to show them just how vibrant and fun Blockdrop is by letting them join our good game modes. For this reason, City Prison is removed from the selector as it generally gets less than 5 people online.

Obviously we care about the community and the people who already have made progress on there. We would never just delete a game mode and leave everyone with losses so you can still access City Prison by going to the normal Prison game mode and doing /cityprison

Hello Blockdrop!

As many of you may have noticed, factions has reset. You may be wondering why and why we did not give much notice.

As most people know, we try to leave it as long as possible between game mode resets, specially on things like factions. We like to give people time to really put effort into making great bases and building up big factions.

The last time we reset factions was last year, in September. It has been so long since the last reset that a lot of bugs and errors started to show. With so much saved playerdata and information in the server, it started to cause lag, bugs and issues. This is why we had to reset.

I never confirm when the next reset is due but I can confirm that it will most likely not be until at least 2020 now.

Some players may wonder if we are getting a new spawn and new features for this reset. The answer is yes but due to the fact that this reset was due to corrupted files and was not planned, I did not have anything readily planned. Instead we will add new features without resetting throughout the year so you may log in and notice new amazing things every week!

Hello Blockdrop!

As you may know, I do not use this updates thread often as I reserve it for big updates and today, we have a gigantic update!

Apart from mini games, we have not had a new game mode since the introduction of survival in 2017 so this is a big deal. I am please to announced that, coming this Friday (February 29th), a completely new game mode!

The new game mode is a prison style game mode that is completely different to any prison you will have played before!

It is based around xp levels instead of rank levels. We have 6 different mines and up to 500 levels that you can achieve. The twist is that it is set amongst the city map from City Life. This means that you can rent apartments and explore the city!

We have coins, satchels, ore generators and even apartment/cell raiding!

This new game mode is guaranteed to be a big success so check by on Friday to take a look and experience the biggest new thing on Blockdrop in over 2 years!

(Just to be clear, this will not effect City Life or the original Prison and both game modes will stay on Blockdrop)
