Recent Unbans

by Shiphtur Wed Mar 22, 2017 1:17 pm

There were quite a few notorious players who got unbanned along with alot of other players recently in last few days.

We are revoking all those unbans as the players case was not properly studied. If you are getting the ban again, it might not be because you are one of those notorious players but because we are revoking all unbans. Please make another ban appeal in that case.

We apologize for any inconvenience caused due to this.

PvP Tournament

by Guitar_Strings Sat Mar 18, 2017 12:29 am

We decided to host another PvP Tournament after the failed one in October.
The tournament will be hosted on 21-23 April or on 28-30 April. Dates will be finalized as soon as possible. The tournament will be held over a whole weekend in an attempt to eliminate problems with time zones.

The winner of this tournament will win a FREE and unique [Champion] title and the top three players will receive a cash prize in a server of their choice. I'll be the main host of the tournament with a few staff members helping me. This tournament is more focused on the players who pvp on a regular basis and consider themselves as some of the top pvp'ers in their respective servers. I'll be hosting a different pvp tournament for players who are less serious about pvp. This does not prevent you from entering anyway just to see how far you could go.

How to sign up:
Send me a forum/discord pm with the following:
Discord ID:
PvP rating out of 10 (Compared to the average pvp'ers on EC):
Average ping while fighting:

You'll be invited to a discord server where any further information will be given and questions you have will be answered. Sign up deadline will be one week before the tournament(14 or 21 April, depending on the finalized date.)

Note: We reserve the power to decide if you may or may not participate in the tournament if your ping is higher than 240ms, or possibly 200ms depending on the entries, as it could give you an unfair advantage.
Note2: We reserve the power to decide if you may or may not participate in the tournament if you have been banned for a hacked client or illegal mods in the past three months.

New Website style!

Finally. It's here. Our new fancy and not-bad-looking-but-decent website is here! ;-)
It took tons of months, tons of complaints, tons of salty kids, tons of tons, but the result seems to be pretty nice.

And it also has that fancy header with those moving particles. I know you tried spam-clicking it already, everyone did.
It just feels good spam-clicking it making tons of particles and making everything lag.
Other than this we added the [Center] tag when you post so you can post your awesome content on forums!

This is just one of the several updates we're planning for our server such as:

[SPOILER ALERT]
  • New server logo (yes, that is taking a long time we know)
  • New server lobby (yes, you read it right, new lobby)
  • New fancy additions for SkyBlock
  • Revamped buycraft page (yes, it won't look like a scam-store anymore)
And new lobby will include fancy stuff such as:
  • Gadgets
  • Costumes
  • Hats
  • Mini-mini-games to earn coins
  • NPCs with kewl dialogues
  • A huge new map with tons of things to explore and discover
  • Collectibles
  • Music
  • Particles, lots of them. I probably over did that.
  • Mazes, dragons and islands. Tons of islands.
  • And your new girlfriend. Just kidding, you don't need that when you have gadgets.
So much stuff huh? And it's not even our final form.
Stay tuned for much more stuff @ ExtremeCraft, soon.

Skyblock Reset! - Announcement

Finally, we're going to reset Skyblock server this Friday, 3 March 2017.
We are planning some new and kewl features that you may like and on top of that the reset will bring a brand new spawn made by our builders team!

No, don't cry, I'll stop you there. You may wonder what could you do the whole day every day before the day of the reset... Well don't worry young boi (or gurl, depending), we are going to organize several TNT parties, FREE full enchanted sets, FREE gapps, FREE TNT, FREE dirt blocks at /shop!
Yea, your tears are not blurring your vision, I clearly wrote FREE.

If you want you can volunteer and offer your island for a TNT party, an admin will set a warp there and blow the hell out of it with WorldEdit and TNT, how cool is that?
Note: to offer your island you just need to call out an admin when we're hosting a TNT party


F.A.Q.
"Omg omg am I going to lose EVERYTHING like my island and my inventory?"
Yes.

"OH. Even my rank?"
Nope.

"What about the $1000000000 and 10k legendary keys I just bought from the store?"
If you bought them in a time reasonably close to the reset day then you'll get your stuff back after the reset, if this doesn't happen automatically please open a support ticket.

"But... Why reset?"
Skyblock server is around 50+ months old, usually servers reset their worlds after 6 or 12 months. It's time, no need to cry. We want it to be fair for everyone, even new players.

"Will ender chest reset too? And vaults? And can i get my money back after reset?"
Yes, yes, no.

Laby Mod

by Shiphtur Wed Feb 08, 2017 2:27 pm

Due to recent banning of players using LabyMod, I have been getting alot of questions as to why exactly is a mod that some PvPer's use is banned.


The mod sends your Login session token to their private server first. This one only concerns the premium users, as their login tokens can be used some where else on another server.
We are not accusing the creators of LabyMod to have done this on purpose to sell premium accounts or use it for their own, Its just a possibility and sending the login session tokens to their own server is just wrong.

The famous block hit animation of 1.7 in 1.8 is the main reason most of the players use this mod, but it does not only change the visual effects, but also changes how your client sends the data to the server. Any modification of how your client sends the data to server is basically hacks as it gives you certain advantage over the other player.

PS. if you thought you were good at block hitting, it was most probably the mod giving you the extra help.

PPS. LabyMod is considered a security threat for premium users and a hack on ExtremeCraft. Any players caught using that will be banned under the category of hacked client
