For those that are not aware, the server has transitioned to a Creative style server. For those that have listened to me over the months, took some time to think and consider, and discussed with me, this is not a surprise. For those that are new or that have no paid any attention to me whatsoever, this is a shocker.
First off, why did we change to Creative?
1. Players are dicks. Especially when you create a server that attracts dicks. Titan was based on griefing, which meant no holds barred PVP. But there is a slippery slope when it comes to enforcing a baseline of etiquette, which basically became impossible to balance without people thinking that we were being unfair to certain people. It’s hard to base a gamestyle that promotes destruction of other peoples’ things and still foster any form of community or inter player relationships. Everyone suspects everyone of stealing, griefing, revealing base and stash secrets, and general asshattery.
2. The game makes it very easy to destroy and ruin what takes hours to build. When you get down to it, after a while no one builds anything remotely nice on the server, as everyone expects everything to be destroyed instantly. Which was true.Nothing looked nice, nothing looked well thought out, and everything was build to maximize uptime and survivability, prolong the time needed to raid, and basically doused and housed everything in lava and obsidian. It was not a nice server.
3. Catering to people that like griefing and PVP to an extent, invited all manners of undesirables and ill mannered. Players that insulted, berated, taunted, and jeered at everyone else for playing that game as it really is – a construction game based on imagination and creativity.
So in short, I am saying a big **** YOU to all the people that made Titan a hostile server filled with annoying people and disrespectful asshats.
For those that stick around, yes, we will have PVP, but we want to focus on the nicer parts about Minecraft – building.
For example, we never did finish the minecart system on the old map because people kept griefing it, to the point where we gave up.
To those of you who may think this server is all PvP; it actually isn't. There are several unofficial factions established by the community of players on BloodBath, and the play-style seems to imitate The MMORPG Server except without the constant crashing, and downtime! If you're looking for a server that allows you to do whatever you want (Except for speaking in severely offensive tone, spawn killing, and hacking) then BloodBath is for you!

its a good server. alot of people collaborate unofficially, so it seems to be taking on some trends of factions... ive built some good stuff, and no douche bags have destroyed it for the sake of destroying iT!
I'm gonna be real here. This server is the bomb. Play it everyday. I had (until I fell into a lava pit) full diamond gear and diamond swords. Me and my faction would destroy everyone we came across and raided several areas. There's a starting zone with hundreds of trees and a few caves where you can get your stuff up without dealing with the PVP. Then you can head out and make a real base. It's very organized in a way, but it's chaos in the fact that you never know what's going to happen to you.
I was playing on this server for a few days, and the speed is great, and I love the no rules/minimal mods way of play. However I was eventually drawn away as I lost my entire diamond armor set and a couple diamond tools due to one of the admins TNT experiments, in which he/she clearly uses mods to be able to fly around and uses /give to create stuff. He was making huge craters, and apparently had created a huge TNT trap which I fell into. Pretty lame.
