Hello Internet!

As you may know, we had a build competition so that the community could get their chance to submit their ideas for the factions spawn. I know building is a lot of work, it takes so much time so I didn't expect more than 2 or 3 people to apply. I was wrong.

A lot of people applied, with a lot of really good builds. The original offer was for a $50 prize for the winner but I wanna make that a bigger prize, because I feel like I want to show more support and appreciation for our community and the effort that people put into it so I am going to add runner up prizes. So the new prizes are:

1st place: $50
2nd place: $25
3rd place: $10
Everyone who did a (full and complete) build submission: A crate key

The problem is that I have a tie between 1st and 2nd place. It is between Baycruse119 and .蛸焼Earl_. So please both of you, could you add me on discord and send me the world file for the maps. I think the way to decide the winner from those 2 is to actually go on the builds and see them from a MC perspective.

3rd place is KeihinFCB so please pm me to let me know what you would like as your $10 prize. Anyone else who submitted a build please pm me to let me know which server you would like your crate key on!

Thank you to everyone that submitted builds and thank you to everyone that plays Blockdrop and supports our great community!

Summer updates will be coming extremely soon and I can't wait to have our 5th busy and fun summer. I am excited to see how everyone likes the new updates and just wanna thank everyone for being such an amazing community. What makes a great server is not the plugins or features, the main thing that effects gamleplace are the other players. That is why it is the community that makes Blockdrop great. The way that you all are, so friendly and you make the games so fun. That is what makes new people want to stay and that is what is helping Blockdrop be 1 of the longest lasting Minecraft servers ever!

Hello Blockdrop!

Its updates time and sadly I must start on a negative note. Some of you may notice that the staff manager (Im not naming names) has been demoted. The reason for this is that a staff member in Skyblock was abusing his role and was getting away with it because he was friends with the staff manager. Obviously this is not acceptable so they have both been removed. I am 100% against staff abuse and take it very seriously. My main responsibility when hiring staff is to make sure they treat you fairly and with respect.

The good news is that I have a few ideas for a new staff manager who will create a more friendly staff team and I will be releasing info and updates on this soon.

Another important thing to update you on is that the mini games (Skywars, Bedwars and Eggwars) are now all changed to allow pvp hacks. The reason for this is that it is impossible to have staff checking every single arena in all the mini games so in the interest of fairness, we will allow anyone to use pvp hacks on these mini games and this will free up staff time to focus more on removing hacks from the other game modes. To be clear, all other game modes are NOT allowing hacks.

Now for the fun part.... (SKIP TO HERE IF YOU WANT TO READ ABOUT THE GIVEAWAY)

For the new factions spawn (Don't worry its not resetting yet) we decided, instead of getting a professional builder that it might be more fun to have a competition. We decided to hold a competition to see who can build the best factions spawn. The winning spawn build will be used on the live server and the builder will receive $50 (you can have the money either in Paypal or as credit on the donation store).

The only requirements are that it has a layout similar to how it is now (with the pvp arena joined and the shop underneath etc) but obviously a different theme. The sizes do have to be specific. It needs to be the same footprint size as the current one (96X64 blocks with the pvp arena part 32X32 blocks)

Once you have build it. Please take screenshots (you can upload them to https://postimages.org and post the pictures in this forum: http://blockdrop.org/index.php?forums/factions-spawn-competition-submissions.52/

A winner will be drawn on the 1st June. I am so excited to everyones builds! If you see a build that you like then please comment on that post as peoples opinions on the post will make a difference when deciding the winner!

Good look!

Thanks for reading and thanks for playing!

Hello Blockdrop.

As I've not done an update for a while, I thought I would check in with everyone just to say hi.

Earlier today someone asked me if I remembered 'Plot Wars'. This made me think. Plot Wars was one of our 1st ever game modes, back in 2014. This means we have been a server now for almost 4 years.

Those that has been around for a while will know that I sometimes make updates to say how much I love the Blockdrop community and how its our strength together that makes Blockdrop so great and keeps us going day after day. I think the fact that we have been here for 4 years is because of this.

Most servers aren't long term things. Some get big quick and die fast, some fade away. But nearly all last less than a year. Mostly for various reasons, normally the owner neglects the server, or they just fail to keep up to date. But mostly its because these servers have a player base, not a community. There is a difference and we have a community, a great one.

Blockdrop is still going strong because its a great place to be. People stick around here for years, not because of the game modes, but because of the community. Its because of their friends and even enemies because they are the real key thing that make up a server experience.

So I just wanted to say thank you, to everyone, old and new, for being a part of this amazing community and helping us to forward into the future stronger than ever. Pulled forward by our desire for excitement and strengthened by our 4 years of strong heritage, I look forward to another 4 years of Blockdrop!

For those wondering if theres any news. The main thing I'm going to be working on is the anticheat. Im working on making it faster and more accurate, you should see some big improvements over the coming weeks.

When I started Blockdrop I was a player on a cracked server. I started Blockdrop because I noticed that cracked servers where a lot worse than Premium servers. I did not like this. I believe that someones wallet should not effect their access to a good game play. I wanted to make a cracked server that could be better than the expensive servers. We now have premium and custom plugins, builds and game modes that are better than most premium servers and a great community thats made us outlast most of them to. Thank you!
