I've only been playing on this server for about a month, but I can say with confidence that it is one of the best multiplayer worlds I have ever joined. The player base and community is always so nice and welcoming, and there is always someone on to help you with any questions or problems you have. If you're looking for a server with an amazing community around it that isn't pay to win, this is the server. Anyone can rank up by simply voting on the servers they list. The more votes you have, the higher your rank gets. They also host events where you can get items that are only available on the donations store. Many of the items on the store are cosmetic and those that aren't are just quality of life options, like permanent /fly or /feed, which helps in making sure there isn't a huge gap between people who can and can't donate.
What's my favorite thing about the server? The people, you guys are amazing.
