EscapeRestart

Premier Gaming Community

 
Sadly, Legacies of Primordia is coming to an end.

We don’t feel like it has the player base to be worth the amount of resources it uses, and we feel like those resources could be used for better things. A lot of things went wrong with the server, I feel like this thread could explain it far better than I could. Regardless me and hopefully many others still had fun playing on the server for it’s brief life.

I send a big thank you to Ogarci and the orginal team for making this server a reality. I’d also like to thank the player base for making this server what is it and the staff team for dealing with the problems that the server had.

We feel like it’d be best if the server went out with a bang. On the 21st of April, the map will be backed up and released to the public and the Anarchy event will begin. (more details to follow)

We hope you all had fun, and rest assured this is not the end of EscapeRestart SMP servers.

Thank you.

This week for the movie night we'll follow another one of Leonardo DiCaprio's wild adventures-- a thief, who steals corporate secrets through use of dream-sharing technology, is giving the inverse task of planting an idea into the mind of a CEO. Great director, great composer, great story, great cast!

We will also be doing another meeting this Saturday at 20:00 GMT, so one hour before the movie.​


What is a meeting?
Every Saturday, staff members of the community gather together to announce global news, server news, promotions/demotions and always answer any questions that people in the community to answer. Typically the recap of each meeting is posted on the forums.

Why attend a meeting?
By no means do you have to attend meetings, many attend them both to be up to date with the latest news and because its seen as a nice social gathering. And many times (like this saturday) we run an event such as a movie or game afterwards. If you have nothing better to do on your saturday night then we offer you to tag along. Which brings me to...

How do i attend a meeting?
This time, we will be doing the meeting on Discord. Attending the meeting is quite simple: Just join the appropriate voice channel when the meeting begins. You can chat in #voice-chat.

When are the meetings?
Meetings are held every two weeks on a saturday, currently at 8pm GMT. To see when this is held in your local time, simply click this link. It'll typically last 15-30 minutes.
Hi,

Thank you for responding to the survey we put out a while back. In total, we got 53 responses, only 3 of which were stupid, which was way better than I expected, and we appreciate it. After the survey closed, instead of just giving each server their results and letting that be that, I instead decided to get each server to write a response to the survey, to show that your feedback is important and will be listened to. These are the responses got. This is going to be a long one.

Community
Donor Perks
The survey found that the community was in favour of implementing donor perks. People largely preferred cosmetics only, though, so we will be looking at whether this will be worth implementing and finding good ways to implement this.

A new Community Admin
This was something that got mentioned a lot in the Community Admin team question. People obviously want more from us, and we want to deliver more, so this is something we will be discussing.

Future of the Community
This was quite a mixed one. Mainly, people want us to stay with Minecraft, and from there, there have been some calls to expand, and some calls to stay put and advertise - we’ll have to figure out what to do here. More events will probably come into play, though, both with temporary gameservers likely involving modpacks, and temporary servers on other games, such as Terraria and Starbound. Clans on the bigger MMO games like League was something that was mentioned too, so we’ll look into that as well. There is quite a lot we can do with this.

Advertising
I’ve done a pretty awful job with it, and it is important, so for now, this will be disbanded and brought up with the admins if needed, because they were primarily who was in the team in the end. If this will be resurrected, it will be with a different admin - potentially a new CA, or a server admin. Sign-ups were low for the team, motivation was often not there, and I will take responsibility...
CTF has now been added to the server.
You will find the flag in the middle of the map, at 137, 55, -50

[​IMG]

Each family will have to fight for the flag, in bring it back to their bases for a reward!
Aeres: 1693, 55, 918
Primus: -1927, 53, 1380
Dagon: -1594, 62, -1214
Gaia: 813, 54, -2159
These locations are right outside each clans respective gates.

The rewards given will be a postive potion effect, one for each capture.
If a clan manages to get all 5 before they run out they will start stacking to tier II!

Current respawn time for flag is 30 min, current timer for potions is 4 hours.

AoD has been doing much better as a server these past few weeks - we've had better player counts and more maps submitted. However, this has affected both myself and the player emotionally more than you would expect. Let me explain.

One only has to turn on the nearest news station to see the mess the world is in - from the London attack last week, the mass shooting in a Florida nightclub to the Boston bombings in 2013. When I saw this video last weekend, it reminded me that we can be better than that! We should be promoting Love not violence.

Therefore, myself and staff agree, that we need to put AoD into a new direction. This lovely image from Arelic demonstrates the exact direction we feel that as a server we should be going:

[​IMG]

Therefore, we are announcing the following changes to the server:

General:
  • Everyone has access to /hug and /highfive - Spread the love!
  • Modified the chat colour scheme to be a bit more pink!
  • Server name changed to "Army of Love"
Mob:
  • Mobs are now super friendy!
Infection and Zombie:
  • Removed the Hunters and Zombies - we realised that these represented fear and death. Therefore, they have be renamed to "Friends", and are now all cuddly!
  • Similarly, Survivors and Humans have been replaced. On discussion with staff, we decided that the Friends now need more friends to spread the love to, and so they have been renamed to the "Meanies" as they do not want to be friends
  • The new primary goal of these game modes is to become friends with as many people as possible!
Capture the flag Love flag:
  • Guns have been replaced with...
Hi - I'm just going to relay what was posted on Discord (with my small edits) by our Discord Admin, Kaoffie, here because it is essential this gets maximum attention. We have not had any reports of this on our Discord server, and it is very unlikely that this will happen, although it is important we relay this information to you regardless.

Recently there has been rumours of a group of people who have been joining servers and sending child pornography through private messages. Either way, we would like to advise you to block any suspicious messages and links from anyone you don't know. To further prevent this, you may choose to disable direct messages from servers. You can find this by clicking on the server name on the left sidebar and selecting Privacy Settings.

[​IMG]

If you would like to report any cases of abuse, please contact both server staff and discord. You may do so by sharing as much information as possible to abuse@discordapp.com. Discord will route any reports to the correct federal agencies - you should not try to route things directly to government agencies yourself without proper legal advice. Do not distribute any of the links which you suspect have child pornography. Distribution of child pornography is highly illegal and may cause authorities to be contacted. This includes sending the actual link to the abuse email of Discord. Instead, please send the Message ID only. The following is a list of information that should be provided:
  • User DiscordTag (With 4-digit discriminant after # symbol)
  • User ID (Right Click User ID → Copy ID)
  • Server Name...
As we are a community, we feel it is important we get your opinions, so we can continue to improve how you all want. We are therefore releasing a relatively large survey, covering the community and all our gameservers, to allow us to gather everyone's thoughts on the server.

The survey will be open for 1-2 weeks, and none of the questions apart from the initial username question are required. Your username will not be used to identify you against your answers, and the raw survey data will only be seen by the Community Admins. We do request you are completely honest with your survey answers - the only way we can improve is if you say what you genuinely think.

Take the survey at:

Oh, and the next Community News will be next week instead of this week due to reasons. Also, come to the RoF spleef tournament tomorrow. Find more details in the RoF subforum!

Thank you!
Spring is right around the corner (or so we want to think) and so in honor of this we want to find out who is the best among us!

This competition will be a spleefing competition with multiple different rounds until the last person is left standing. The event will take place on Saturday 25th March at 8pm GMT.

The competition itself will be a 4 player free for all spleef on this arena
[​IMG]
Any players that are not currently participating will be able to spectate above it to see who will win.

Now what is the reward for being the last man standing? For the entirety of the spring season that player will be able to hold the "Spring Champion" title which will look like this.
[​IMG]
This title will be held until the next competition occurs and the winner receives their title

Now get out there and start practicing your spleefing!
