Searching for a classic Prison server that rewards hard work while keeping up with some of the modern server features? Then look no further, we feel this is the server for you! On our prison server, we have custom and fun pickaxe enchantments but keep combat/pvp enchantments strictly vanilla in order to keep things fair and balanced. We have ranks and prestiges that gradually get more challenging but rewarding as you progress. We don't believe ranking up should be impossible straight from the start, but instead should be strategic and fun. We look to revive the grind aspect that classic prison servers used to have by not coddling the player straight away, instead allowing them to work their way up the ranks getting stronger as they go.
Once you connect to the server, you will be greeted by a short but informative tutorial showcasing some of the main features we have to offer, however here is a more in-depth list:
Hi guys! Visa here, one of the first lucky players to have visited the BlueJay Network. After approximately a week of grinding I thought it was about time to write something resembling a server review. Keep in my that I'm just a member and do not represent the management of the server in anyway. With that being said, let us begin.
First off I want to begin by saying: wow. This is an amazing server with a committed owner who likes to plan ahead. In my time playing Minecraft, it has been a long long time since I last encountered a server with so much pure potential as this one. An experienced owner who knows what he's doing is what I consider "key" to success.
Secondly while the server community is still in it's earlier phases, it already has a foundation filled to the brim with kind and intelligent people. Some are wacky, some are a bit mental (I'm talking about you Nom, y-you crazy grinder!), and some are just lurking in the background while soaking in the general cheerfulness. Their contribution mainly consisting of a desolate "gg" or "congrats" whenever someone /rankup or /prestige.
Thirdly, despite being a new server, the map reeks of ancient tales and legends, being a heritage from the old Omega Network from 2014. Easter eggs are hidden throughout spawn making the server seem alive and worthy to invest your time in.
Finally, without prolonging this review too much, I just want to say: try the server out. The server isn't without fault, but then again - what server is? It might not be what you expect, it might be worse, or better. But what's special about this server is its constant growth and management. Lastly, it might be your first time playing on a "Prison" server. Heck, you might not even know what a "Prison" server is! (I sure didn't know the first time I joined). But if you like nice people, grinding, contributing to a growing community, and being a part of something new and amazing, then this server is for you.
Hope to see you in-game, and be sure to say Hi if you do.
Edit: posted this a 2nd time due to format corruption...
After a busy few months, we've made the move from server version 1.8 to 1.16.4! We will still permit logins from 1.8 clients, however you can now enjoy the latest features of the game. Come check it out and let us know what you think.
So far, the server's actually quite decent, albeit I haven't gotten very far. As I'm new to prison servers, I don't really know as to what could be improved at the moment or not, but that will come with time
Just an idea i have: add something like pickaxe leveling and make it so the higher level ur pickaxe is the higher level enchants can be for example at pickaxe lvl 1 u can only have keyfinder at lvl 5 max and then when its lvl 10 it can be like keyfinder lvl 25 max.
Hi BlueJay, wanted to point out that the setup of this server is fantastic and I look forward to seeing where this server goes. I've been playing on prison servers since late 2012, and I respect the direction you all have taken with this. I look forward to seeing y'all around! Feel free to shoot me a message if you want to chat!
