To those not on the BNMC Discord server, you would be unaware of what has been going on with the Blockade Network Minecraft server. So, I think that it is finally time to discuss the future of the unpopular server.
I will first start off by saying that like many people, I don't have a lot of free time anymore since the USA is starting to finally come back to normal where I live. Because of this, I have been unable to put enough time and effort as I did back in March through July. I will say that those months were the peak of the server because that was when people had time to actually play some Minecraft, and back then we actually had many server options from people to choose from. I was originally starting this ambitious Minecraft network with a group of 4 other friends of mine, but since then, they have not had any response in regards to the Minecraft network. Because of this, no one was willing to pay the bills and I was the one stuck with it. It wasn't entirely their fault since I was the one who had to manage the backend and I did make some server upgrades with the intention of more players, but the player activity on the servers never really increased as much as I hoped.
As I have already said on the forum, I have shut down the KitPVP 2.0 launch, along with shutting down SkyBlocks, Anarchy, and Mysterious Survival. However, since then, I have shut down Factions and am only keeping the Creative server online, because that was the most voted server on the Discord server. This is the only way that I can still keep working on something that I really would like to keep alive, but can also keep me alive and providing for myself, as I have no stable income. I am not old enough yet to get a real job.
The Creative server will at least remain online for the next three months and I have the intention of remaining to pay for it after, as I have already renewed the annual payment for this domain as well. The name of the server will not change, but will further be referred to as Blockade Creative, and not so much as Blockade Network/Blockade Networks. All "network" names will only refer to the origins of the server but will mean the creative server.
I truly am sorry for letting people who were actually excited (and yes, there were people) down. I really never thought it would come to this so soon. It is close to being a year since I originally came up with the idea for a Minecraft network. I am very devastated by the outcome and I really don't want to be doing this.
More updates on the way, but I am always appreciating any support that I can get. Anyone interested in helping out can join our Discord server and open a ticket mentioning that you are able to help out. I will then initialize the proper procedures for getting you ready.
Once again, thank you to the people out there that really believe in the server. I am sorry that I let it get to this.
Unfortunately, due to high server costs and the lack of players, our least popular servers, which happened to be SkyBlocks, survival, mysterious survival, and KitPVP are now shut down. The GitHub pages with world files are listed down below for your pleasure.
I hate to do this, but I didn't have much of a choice. If you would like to help bring back the servers and fund Blockade Network, consider donating to our Patreon page or server store.
After a few hours of work, you can now vote on any platform listed on our voting page in the forum. If you want to earn more BlockBux in Factions and soon KitPVP, you can earn 25 BlockBux by voting and you can earn the BlockBux each day! So, let's help grow the community! We've already grown to be ranked currently as Number 4 on https://www.minecraft-servers-list.org/ and I wish that we grow even further.
Share us with other players, mention us in forums, help us grow to an extent that makes the experience enjoyable for many players! That's our main goal. We want an experience like no other with a strong community and you are part of the foundation. I thank you for your support so far in our network and I hope that you can have an even better experience in the future!
While Blockade Network has been on Planet Minecraft ever since it was released, I've finally updated it to be more informational and have a lot more updated information about the network! You can even share it with your friends as the Planet Minecraft listing has a voting system that will soon give you free BlockBux each time you vote! Below, you'll find a quick snapshot of the page and what you can share to others.
Use the link listed below to check out the listing yourself!
By checking out the Planet Minecraft listing, you'll even get a glimpse at what you can expect BNMC to be soon. We want to branch off and by doing that, we want to make more game modes that will be even more enjoyable to our players. By spreading the word, you can help the server grow and you can rise to the top by voting, promoting, and chatting.
I hope that you are all doing great and I hope to be keeping you up-to-date on Discord, Planet Minecraft, and here, our forum.
