    Good evening Corbacrafters!

    I am going to do my best to keep this straight to the point. :) We are finally updating to 1.13! Woooo!

    Below will be hopefully be most if not all information needed for any questions and just overall info about the update.​

    Date of release: January 9th at 1:00PM EST

    The plan:
    Recently player count and our available staffing has been lower then the normal. With the being said we have decided to downsize the server a bit to make staffing a lot easier and to ensure a higher quality server is provided. The server will be going to a single server rather then the classic hub style. This means when you log into the new server you will be straight into the survival world. That means that the entire community will be on one server rather then spread out this will give the players and the staff to get familiar with all players and have a chance to play survival there-selves (myself included).

    Because of the new system being put into place we are also going to have a new way we do the server release. Instead of releasing a 100% Complete server we are going to release just the basics and add things as we go, for example the list of items below will be included and other things will added as we update.

    • Player Shops
    • Warp Hall (Survival warps only, others will come in updates)
    • Basic Admin shop (Basic Items not the extensive one)
    • Crate Area (2 Main Crates, and a seasonal/theme crate comes in updates)
    • Spawn PVP Area with no item drop
    • Donator ranks
    Below are a list of the updates coming first with some more features thrown in as they come. These are not in a specific order.
    • Auction House
    • Quest
    • Catalog
    • More PVP Arenas (Some with and without item drop)
    • Leaderboard stats with bi-monthly rewards.
    • Mob arena
    • Disguises
    • Personal worlds (If you already bought one of these you will get your new one.)
    • Special and Event warps
    • Themed gameplay
    • Server events (ran by the event team)
    • Player ranks (or alternative)
    One of the most important features I want to embrace is the unique and ever changing theme gameplay which will make more sense as it comes and ill explain more when the time comes also.

    Donator Information:
    Anyone that has previously donated will have their donator rank as soon as they log in. Most if not all donator features will be on the server right away if the feature your looking for isnt expect to come in an update.
    Donator crate keys as per usual reset on the reset.

    Special Teams:
    Members of the build and or event team will have the single tag that applies to them as soon as they join either an "E" for event or "B" for builder. The event team will not be active until we are ready to introduce events into the new server (There will be a meeting before this). Builders will not be put in creative or opped until the builder world is introduced unless under DIRECT supervision of the build manager or an admin.

    Staff Members:
    All current helpers will be placed as helpers on the new server and all current cmods will be placed as mods on the new server. All T-Helpers will be helpers.

    Player Ranks:
    The player rank system is removed for now we are going to try to use a standard "Player" tag and possibly make a new player ranking system or a similar system in place of it just to make things a bit more interesting and possibly included more uses of CorbaCash.

    Any questions should be directed here and only should be responded to once by a staff member if a staff member doesn't know the answer forward the question to me.

    FAQ's
    1. Will the server be resetting?
    Yes
    2. Will my donator rank transfer?
    Yes
    3. Why are we resetting?
    1.13 pretty much requires it.

    @ergology
    Question: Why not wait to reset until all additional features are implemented? Also, aren't Personal Worlds reset safe?

    Lots of questions can be found in the comments of this video.

    Questions not in the comments:
    What is going to happen to Skyblock? Is it just going to be no more?

    "The player rank system is removed for now we are going to try to use a
    standard "Player" tag and possibly make a new player ranking system or a similar system in place of it just to make things a bit more interesting and possibly included more uses of CorbaCash."
    What does this exactly entail? Does that mean there is no way for players to earn /fly? ( Pay to win EULA ;-; )
    We already use a system that uses corbacash to get fly
    ( even though it is broken)

    As for the comment questions... Please answer as many as you can =)
    (Also I was wondering if the time can be adjusted to maybe at like 10:00 or something) ;-; or maybe later or something <3

    Skyblock for now is going to be a later project we are simply to busy at the moment. We plan to somehow incorporate it into the new server though.

    Fly will most likely be earnable through ccash but we are unsure its one of those problems that requires us to be creative ill keep u updated on that.

    Ill answer those question in the next post.

    Thanks Ergo, Matt and Rose. CC needed a reconfigure given staff and player numbers. All the cool stuff players want, and more, I'm sure will be added back in as time and staffing allow. The key will be rebuilding the CC community which will take the commitment of the owner, the staff and the players. If you are an old player get back in the game. If you are a new player check it out, nothing ventured nothing gained. If you are a current player your commitment can lead to s a staff position. If you are current staff, there is lots of room to progress as the server grows. If you are the owner stay visible and involved but most importantly communicate and discuss on a daily basis. That will make a huge difference to the health of the community. All the best in the New Year.

    I really like what you said here Celtic. I think it is SUPER important that the owner connects with their community. There was a previous community server that I was on that had around 100 players on the weekends, 60 on weekdays. I really liked it, but the owner stopped doings his weekly things such as streams for a free rank competition and all of that such. I think that was the main reason why the server closed. The server was amazing as it is, but with no interaction or anything "special" to add flavor to the server, it was kind-of just there.

    Thanks Ergo! Hope to hear your answer soon!
    P.S: Will the time stay the same? I was hoping it could be at a time where a lot of the server is not in school <3
    P.P.S: Skyblock rewards?! What will happen to the people who have skyblock ranks?
    P.P.P.S: Will there be a "beta"? I know sophus was whack because of spawners.. and I would really like something to change with that. Will there even be spawners anymore?

    My hypothesis is that it will be an entitely different world name... I'd support faster crop going and mob spawning.. as long as it doesn't break the economy

    Guessing you are on your phone.. everything will be cleared out. If you purchased a rank or keys, those will be reimbursed to you and things.

    Items in your inventory? nope.

    Ergo said : Donator crate keys as per usual reset on the reset.
    Flash said : If you purchased a rank or keys, those will be reimbursed to you and things.

    I'm not sure I understand. Will we get keys if we purchased some in the old servers ?

    Hey @Az,

    seperate keys you have bought will not be reimbursed. Keys that you get with your rank on the other hand are a different matter, it's possible that you will get those. I'm sure an admin will be able to tell you more on this matter specifically.

    Changes can always be scary at first but with time I'm sure everyone will get used to the new way the server is now set up. Reworks/resers can allow everyone to rebuild and make changes come more natural. Cant wait to see how everything plays out.

    Will every item we gathered be gone? Will our builds be gone as well? Are donor Worlds also going to be wiped with this reset, or the items and builds there will be safe? How can I save the house I built in the main world? Can it be moved or copied to my DW?

    What will be kept in my account? Money gathered so far? Ranks? Keys from voting? The chosen DW? Anything?

    @Shiyvah
    The world is being reset, so all of your items, money, builds, EC, etc. will be gone. If you have a rank, you will receive the Voting Keys and CorbaCash it comes with. As for Donor Worlds, I'm not completely sure. I've always assumed that they were Reset Safe, but @ergology is yet to confirm that with me.
