This is a quick announcement post to fill everyone in on what has been going on behind the scenes at Glowstone. As I stated in previous posts, our initial plans for Glowstone were disrupted by a major lack of understanding about the state of content and the community - as in, not many community members were happy with the state of Glowstone and the content/server wasn't very attractive. Our initial plans focused on small updates and management of Glowstone's community until a new Massive PVP concept server had been developed (that Glowstone would be merged with). Because of the current state of Glowstone, our initial plans have been scrapped. We are focused on developing a major update/revamp, as mentioned in previous posts. Development has been coming along well. The new GlowstonePVP server is being released on 1st June, this is 2 weeks later than the estimated date, but is due to a major change in plans - Glowstone is merging with another server. I've explained what is happening in detail below. Glowstone Merge GlowstonePVP is merging with Dancraft. I want to preface by saying that this change is not necessarily permanent and can be reversed if the community does not like it. That said, there are many positives to this merge: The biggest positive is that it will allow Glowstone to grow faster. Dancraft has a much larger playerbase and has a big marketing campaign coming up). Everyone on Glowstone has access to more servers (Factions, Kit PVP, etc). There are more resources (builders, developers, time, etc) to dedicate to the server (as previously they were shared). Below is a list of what will be happening on the day of the merge: The GlowstonePVP server addresses (e.g. mc.glowstonepvp.com) will be pointed towards Dancraft's Massive PVP server (Ulti), which will happen as Dancraft's Massive PVP server (Ulti) has an update and reset. This update/reset has all of the GlowstonePVP content promised in previous posts - the only difference is that it will be on Dancraft's network, rather than on Glowstone. Your rank on GlowstonePVP will be converted to an equivalent on Dancraft - this rank is shared across all of Dancraft's servers, so you will have a rank on Factions, Skyblock, KitPVP/OP PVP, DanGames, Creative, Prison and all of the other Dancraft servers. We have spoken to several members of the community, and have found that for many of you, Glowstone isn't just a server, but a (large) group of friends. For this reason, we are also making sure that: The GlowstonePVP forums remain online indefinitely (forever). The GlowstonePVP statistics, website, etc will remain online. The GlowstonePVP Discord will continue to be managed for at least 3 months after the merge (you will be encouraged to use Dancraft's Discord, however). GlowstonePVP will have a legacy server (the current GlowstonePVP server) open up at legacy.glowstonepvp.com 1 month after the merge (if the community requests it). The date of this update/merge is officially 1st June 2018 (in 2 weeks time). We are really excited about this update and merge, and will be making a post next week with images/more plans for the new Massive PVP server. This post will focus on asking for feedback from you about what will be changing. There is also likely to be a joint beta test of the server with both Glowstone's community and Dancraft's community. Let us know what you think in the comments!
