The new world opens on 2017 March 04. The old world closes on 2017 March 18. Additional info about what worlds are affected, what the border sizes are, and Overlord vaults can be found here! What is a soft reset? A soft reset is when we load up another world at the same time as the current one. This will allow you move your items across the worlds. In short, it is a new world with the ability to move your items to the new world for two weeks. Why are we doing a soft reset? After much deliberation and comments from players, the staff team has come to the conclusion to open a new world at the same time as our current world, and to connect them together for two weeks. The current world will be removed once players have moved into the new world within the given time frame. This also allows the new structures and blocks from recent Minecraft updates to generate in a new world too. How can you move items across worlds? You can move your items across worlds in various ways. There will be a portal at spawn that will teleport you into the new world. We currently have two options. Self-moving: You, the player, will bring all of your items through the portal at spawn and bring them to your new base. A side note: if you have more than one set home you can use that as an advantage for easier travel convenience. Base copy: This method has been used in previous years and we are happy to bring it back, but we have changed it a little bit. A base copy is when an Administrator takes a copy of your base then brings it over to the new world with all of its components. Your base in the old world will be nuked and destroyed after your base is successfully pasted in the new world with all of its components. This year we have decided not to charge players real money. Instead, we are using vote streaks! Every player is entitled to this “deal,” ONE TIME. Another side note: we will measure to the EXACT block there will be no exceptions for an extra 2 or 3 blocks. *Please mark out the area that you want to be copied with wool or other block that stands out* 2-4 Vote streak = 15x15x15 5-8 Vote streak = 25x25x25 9-12 Vote streak = 50x50x50 13+ Vote streak = 125x125x125 Personal portal: Currently undecided. Please check this post later for more information. FAQ What will the world size be? We are making the world smaller. The new size is 100,000. If the server’s player base increase, the world border might increase. Will there be a new spawn? Yes! Will I keep my paid rank? All ranks will transfer over with the appropriate amount of time left on their durations. Since there is an option to move your items, no refreshes will be made. Will banned players be allowed in the new world? No, same as every other soft/hard reset. Server difficulty? The server difficulty will remain at hard. Will I keep my bedrock vault? All current holders of bedrock vaults will still get to keep them in the new world. There may be a special offer to current vault holders to trade their vault for a set of items or a teleport. More details will be announced in the future. If you have any other questions feel free to ask.
