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
