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!
