What does that mean?As of now, all HallOfFame seasons have finished, except on Factions servers. With exception of Factions servers, we will be changing all ExtremeCraft servers into non-competitive servers, as such most of the perks being sold on those game modes are already compliant with the new EULA. Instead of focusing on making our servers competitive, we will be focusing on catching up on updates, yes 1.17 is coming to ExtremeCraft real soon, with new blocks, new mobs, new features, and more.
What about Factions and OpFactions?We're not planning on changing our global ranks but they will be removed from the store and replaced with new ranks and perks. Furthermore, we will not be adding back any ranks or perks on Factions and OpFactions servers, that would provide players with unfair advantages. For now Factions and OpFactions will be the only competitive servers left on ExtremeCraft.
Bans? Unbans? Unban all?Following the new EULA, we also proceeded to remove Unbans from our store. We've recently revised our rules and updated our AI handling ban appeals so that ban appeals won't be auto-closed anymore if you had too many offenses. We're NOT doing "unban all", blindly unbanning all players left and right as we've tried that in the past and it didn't really work out, but you are welcomed to submit a ban appeal if you're banned.
HallOfFame changesWith all those changes in mind, HallOfFame rewards are now BiWeekly and only on Factions and OpFactions servers.
AcidIslandHall Of Fame season running on AcidIsland server just ended, mainly because players were just leveraging it to farm free vouchers while there were not actually that many players playing AcidIsland. At this point, we're unable to confirm when the next AcidIsland server reset will come or if Hall Of Fame will still be a thing on AcidIsland - this mainly depends on the amount of players who are interested in actually playing AcidIsland server.
Store and VouchersWe're planning to remove some P2W items from the store and changing Hall Of Fame Vouchers a bit within the next few days, to prevent players from hijacking whole HOF seasons making it difficult if not impossible for others to play.
MineCarsYou can now race against others on our new MineCars! To use them you need to /vote or be a Hero+ rank. Any minecart is a MineCar, just ride it and drive away
MarriagesWe're stepping up our roleplay here, you can now marry other players with /marry!
Spawn and PvPOur builders provided us with a brand new Spawn and a brand new PvP arena
VotingVoting is now worth more! Each vote will grant you 1 hour of WorldEdit, 1 hour of /ase (more on this below), 1 hour of MineCars usage as well as the usual heads and money.
ParkourProve your worth at /parkour, we prepared for you
New Rank ColorsWe are working on a load of changes and updates, among others we would also like to change the colors of our donor ranks so that each rank could have its own unique color, for this we would like your opinion so vote here which color combination you like the most https://www.extremecraft.net/polls/
Chat GamesThis one has been requested since quite a bit of time, you will start seeing chat games now every hour or so, the classics "Unscramble the word", "Math question" and "Type the following" (we're open to suggestions for more games you'd like to see)
Video Editor ApplicationsWe are looking for Video Editors! You can apply for the position here
New PvP KnockbackThis is also something a lot of you have been suggesting since a while, we now changed the knockback values on all the gamemodes based on your valuable feedback provided on /go pvp, the changes are effective everywhere starting from now
1.17 PlansYes, 1.17 when. We are waiting for 1.17 Minecraft (set to release around mid year), after that it will be a couple of weeks wait time for the server version to be released and once that's out we'll try to reset and update SurvivalPlus to that
Anvil Color PreviewReally minor quality of life update but, if you have a rank that lets you, when you try to color items in anvil you will see the live preview of what the name will be instead of seeing the ugly & everywhere
Rules Less StrictWe're trying to correct our aim and improve our rules and punishments, for this reason we slightly changed the punishments issued in some cases and we will also be less strict when it comes to handling ban appeals.
Party LimitsWe're trying to address the issue of big parties in PvP without also affecting everyone else so from now on friendly fire will be automatically toggled on when there are 30 or more party members online
Did you know...?This section is for the forgotten features that we never announced that I come across and that I feel deserve their own mention
Tomorrow there will be a surprise for all the Creative players... Not 1.17, not yet sorry.

New Levelling System
We came up with a solution that would let you level up and at the same time give you enough space to build a nice looking island with no compromises.
You now have /is addlevels, this will open an inventory in which you drop in Coal, Iron, Gold, Emerald, Redstone, Lapis, Quartz or Diamond blocks and they will be consumed and turned into points.
New Spawn and PvPOur builders provided us with a brand new Spawn and PvP arena (Credits: BlueberryDaFloor, PlotChat and DaddyOmer)
ScoreboardSkyBlock will now have a sidebar showing useful info. You can toggle it in /sett if you like.
New EconomyWe tried to come up with a new economy that hopefully will keep things a bit more interesting and aim for a less AFK-focused gameplay.
New Starter IslandsYou can select from a wide range of new starter islands based on different biomes when you start playing now.
The old lottery was obviously too difficult, nobody would ever win so we reworked it entirely, we got rid of numbers and combinations and a winner is guaranteed to be selected twice a day.
Server NPCs and SpawnFollowing the lead of some other servers we also added NPCs that will connect you to all our gamemodes, this will make it easier for newcomers to have an overview of what we offer without going through the selector menu. Also they just look cool. (Thanks to Ivri22 for the edits and improvements to the spawn area)
Collectibles and ResetWe decided to rework the core of our lobby plugin and took the chance to start fresh and reset all the data of the past years so we could also apply some balance changes and fix some exploits that gave people infinite coins
So collectibles got reset too, we also changed locations so don't worry about the old coords you saved somewhere as they won't help you.
To spice up things a little bit this time the reward will be a little more fulfilling, in fact you will unlock the exclusive [LobbyExplorer] title that you will be able to use anywhere on the server, the title cannot be bought.
Snake TrainsWe found and fixed the Snake Trains that never made it to the public lobby, you can ride them and they'll show you the entire map.
Bug FixesSeveral bugs affecting the lobby since its release were also fixed as well as some false kicks from the anticheat.
BuildBattle, Pixel Art?
This is a side announcement regarding the latest BuildBattle, this time around the theme is Pixel Art.
We feel like we never gave enough love to all the players with skills in this building style and this will be an interesting change of pace.
