-2 new maps have been added for infected. "Jungle" and "Savanna" -A free for all Gamemode is being added on the map "Biohazard -New build competitions will be taking place tonight! 8pm EST in the creative world.
This is actually one of my favorite servers, it isn't too crowded, the players are really nice, and its just one of those servers where you can make lots of friends easily. New content for minigames and other stuff is added occasionally, and with skyblock, creative world, and survival, there sure is a lot to do! The new map "Savanna" was a map both Nick and I made, and I, along with everyone else from Sympul, hope to see you guys online, take care, and Cya on Sympul!
While I've personally gotten bored of survival for the most part, this server was actually one of the really fun ones to play on. The staff are nice and responsive, trolls, spammers, and griefers get banned/muted quickly, and it has plenty of useful plugins that just make for a more enjoyable experience. I've played on the server since near it's starting point (I think I missed like a couple weeks or something?), and though some of the plugins added have pushed me away, it's still fun to just come on and chat with the people on the server since they're mostly nice people. Mostly. With like one or two people as exceptions but that's more a personal thing I just don't like them hue. Anyways through it's iterations the server has become fairly clean as far as plugins go, none of the buggy/stupid ones that have made me leave before are in anymore, and the owner is being a little more careful about the glitchy ones.
The skyblock has plenty of challenges for users to do, and the shop is fairly balanced. (well now it is xD) You can even work in teams of four to an island if you so desire. And then there's the minigames and creative, my two favorite sections of the server at the moment. Minigames currently includes a mob arena that's completely screwed up because the mobs don't move and the staff should probably remove it or otherwise fix it already, a parkour course or two, a skylands battle simulator, and then a bunch of pvp games. Currently hyped up is the Infected game, probably because there's the most maps for that. The coolest thing about it is the maps were made by the players, like how Higuy said he made Savannah. I helped with Jungle, and did most of the work on Biohazard as well as working on a new mine/caves map for people to play infected on. The plots are fairly decently sized, about a hundred and twenty blocks square, and that's plenty of room for normal people to build. I however would love larger plots, since I like building gigantic arenas for people to kill each other on and that requires a lot of room. That said, you can get more plots by becoming a vip, which is also what currently gives access to world edit, though permissions are still kind of derpy and need to be finished at this time.
Overall it's a nice server and I'd give it a 9/10. The owner added a couple things I've hated in the past, like limiting experience, lessening ore spawn outside of caves, etc. Usually that results in me leaving the server for weeks or months at a time, though I'll come back now and then to check up on people and say hi to see if they've removed the plugin yet. But as I mentioned earlier all the negative aspects of the server have been basically ironed out, with few things left to complain about other than permissions being a little funky. But that's just because they were recently edited so that's to be expected for a short while, at least within the affected sections of the server. If creative is your thing, this is a great server to hang out on. If you're interested in minigames, it's got some but nothing too overwhelmingly spectacular, the minigames here are mostly for people to play now and then instead of survival/creative now and then. As for survival, unless you want to play skyblock I don't really think I can give you an accurate description of what it's like since I haven't played it since the last update. (skyblocks fun though, minus starting the cactus challenge)
Also look I'm in the picture yay I'm the derpy purple one on the left. Also the photobombing wither skele ghost hue.
