First server that comes across as an actual community instead of a chat spam of mods who are cliquey. It was great to feel welcomed and instantly make a friend. I like that everyone seems involved with eachother in what they're doing and everyone is really easy going compared to other servers where you get soft muted and temp banned for even the slightest miss-step. I am very picky about survival pve servers in general because my old server I played on (for 8 years) had everyone I wanted apart from that the community disbanded and the server player count dropped dramatically. So it is nice to finally find a very similar server in terms of rules, plugins, and advertised gameplay with the plus of a nice welcoming community.
i like how friendly the community is and the people on this server are ever so helpful and willing to lend to hand. another thing it like is how this server isnt pay to win. even more because i dont have the funds to invest money. cant wait to invest more hours into this server
The server is an amazing collection of people who have a passion for the game. Now is a great time to join the server as they are having there spring event, which means people have a chance to get cool loot through events such as egg decorating and egg hunts. =D
Hello. This server is a great server to play on. Everyone is friendly and kind and anyone who isn't, is dealt with. The staff on this server never abuse their power and are so friendly. Greif is not allowed by players or mobs. This means that creepers can't blow up your wonderful builds. (they can still kill you tho)
Any greif done by player can be fixed and always is fixed quickly. Also the player greifing can be tracked down and punished. Now please trust me when I say this. There is a slight issue with some people. They will just not accept free stuff. They say people on this server are too nice. I agree. But thats an even better reason to join. There is no PvP so you cant be killed by other players. Its just a friendly solo survival. But it doesn't have to be solo. You can live and build with friends. When you place down a chest it automatically locks so other players can open it and take your stuff. If you want a player to be able to take stuff then you simply do /cmodify "playername". Its just a really fun and very friendly servers. Oh and one more thing. If you die don;t worry. you can get your stuff back pretty easy. When you die a chest with all of your loot in it appears. This chest lasts 24 hours and you are able to get to it buy using $10 of in game currency. You can get this money by voting, setting up shops, selling stuff, and doing quests. If you decide to come and join out lovely WinterCrest Community than you are welcome.
*** Please Read, new players opinion on Wintercrest***
If you are looking for a new server, let me give you an insight into Wintercrest from a new player having only been here for approx 30 days.
I can give you an honest review from someone with a fresh perspective.
This server really is a community, organised to an impressive level which is extrapolated if you consider this is a free server with a relatively small (but growing fast) player base, max I have seen in my 30 days is 100 concurrent players on at one time.
So lets start, you join the server.. Now what? Well, you are truly welcomed at the start, and not just at the start, every single time you login someone will welcome you.
Firstly, you arrive in the hub and are greeted by the server rules, you may think this is a lot of information and you just want to start hunting for diamonds, but it is 5 mins of your time and will help you get up to speed quicker. Not to mention save the sanity of the admins and active players who answer the same questions over and over.
One thing is made clear in the rules, the server is trust based and setup to be a friendly environment with zero tolerance to bullying. In a world full opinions and platforms to cast them, I cannot tell you how refreshing this is to see.
There is a clear ranking system in place on the server, as you progress up you will receive more and more privileges. To rank up, it's simple, have fun, be nice, join in and learn about Wintercrest.
Just a survival server? Nope.. You can just hop on and start to build your latest project, but if you look in the active discord server, you will see the latest events being announced, in my short time here I seen more events happen then I could participate in. How do they do it? They have their own dedicated events team to plan and execute.
On all servers you will get players that will break rules resulting in a ban from the server, most admins may leave it at that. Not here, there is a predefined appeal process to go through to ensure you have your voice and that a fair decision is reached.
To summarise, if you are looking for an active server, ran by a team that are organised, fair and up for fun, you can do a lot worse than Wintercrest. It is a hidden gem for sure.
