    With the recent acquisition of the AoD1 plugin, we're hosting a temporary 1.8 event server, complete with 120 AoD1 maps, the old lobby, messages, and bugs! Check the spoiler below for a full list of maps. (Though, unfortunately, we do not have the old player data)

    The server opens on 2nd September at 12 PM GMT

    seems like fun.
    kind of funny we'd get this the day after I finally decide to be a cat for the first time in 4-5 years.

    Oh wait, it's actually 1.8

    that's highly problematic for me because specifically that version tends to wipe my client's server list for no explainable reason, and this issue has survived a factory reset.

    I admire the persistence, but you guys do remember what happened to the previous nostalgia events, right?

    You do know events aren't meant to last forever, right? Nostalgia events works fine if you space them out - the community has fun and once people are bored the event is over.

    It goes with any event, the 7DTD event was the exact same way. This isn't meant to be a permanent solution, or a permanent server. It's meant as a fun activity to get players together for a while, and thats all it is.

    this event will probably have better reception than, say, the cTNT event because it's traditional Minecraft pvp as we've done it instead of awkwardly trying to hit people with pyrokinetic blocks.

    Events may be nice once in awhile, but so far this Community hasn't created any long term, solid servers for quite some time. It's becoming a cyclical process with events that last a minute then we're stuck with the same old shit. Any new updates to the current servers take months to be released, then another damn nostalgia event happens.

    Cant fucking wait
    also what the fuck is this? o.o

    Event servers are ment to be a short event. I want to play on this server, plenty of others want to too. I do not see the issue with having events that people like.

    If you want to bitch about nothing happening on our current servers go, to their respective server forum, or talk to the staff of those servers. If you want new servers and events, feel free to make a suggestion about it in a constructive thread. If you have issues with the way things are run, I am sure the CA's are happy to listen to you in a PM.

    The AoD team has put a lot of work into this server, this constant negativity from you, has no place here, and is very disrespectful to the staff that has worked hard to make this server possible.

    Sorry for being negative and voicing my opinion here, but my issue was solely based on the constant nostalgia that this Community is clinging onto, not toward AoD Staff.

    Then again, it would be nice if their efforts were focused on further improving and updating the current AoD server and trying to make it ten times better than it is right now. The same can be said for the other minecraft servers where content and player retention are probably lacking still.

    Also, I'm certain that the CA's are fed up with my bullshit, especially with what Hex did to me yesterday.

    Honestly though, I want to see this Community become even more successful and my passion for that is probably stronger than some on here.
    Right now though, I don't think that this Community is all rainbows and fucking unicorns.

    I can personally attest that the AoD staff is active and works on AoD quite a lot, as I got access to their chats, so I wouldnt worry too much about that.

    Neither of the other servers are currently in a bad spot, and while there is always room for improvement, improvements are currently being made on both of them.

    If you want to improve our community, you need to stop with these negative posts that you keep making. Go make a suggestion thread if you get one, complaining in various of threads were it is not relvant derails the thread and is unnecessary.
