1.7 Support and Top Voters Changes
Posted: Fri Nov 02, 2018 11:57 am
Out of nowhere, when nobody was expecting it, here it is for you. We are currently supporting clients on Minecraft version 1.7
Beware, the server version is still 1.8, we simply allow 1.7 clients to join and play but that comes at a cost which includes:
- Missing spectator mode
- Not working enchantment table (because of missing lapis)
- Missing 1.8 blocks such as sealantern/sponges/several brick types/etc
- Possible bugs and glitches caused by protocol conversion 1.8 -> 1.7
If you find bugs, issues or glitches do not report them unless they might be harmful to the server or other players!
We only truly support 1.8.x
Regarding updating to newer versions we're still working on it, at the moment the drawbacks are still too high compared to the gains we'd have.
Top Voters Changes
We applied a couple of changes to the algorithm accepting votes and deciding top voters of the month to make it more fair and balanced.
We're now considering only votes 12h after GMT+1 (first day of the month) and 12h before GMT+1 (last day of the month).
This will prevent people exploiting the fact the reset happened at different time zones.
Also if multiple players will reach the top 5 with the same amount of votes the winners will be picked randomly.
If you don't know what I'm talking about don't worry and keep voting as you always did
