MCGamer Premium Ranks and Legacy Ranks Revised

  • 839
  • 4
Hello Tributes,

We have taken your feedback to heart and reviewed our options as far as the recent feedback with our premium ranks going forward. Just giving you a little back story, this topic was one of the hardest items to figure out for this place as we wanted to achieve some balance over the legacy supporters and still encouraging upgrades to continue any funding this community needs to get through our development and release phases. We released ranks last Sunday and we have had some heated, yet valid debates over this topic and wanted to let you know we put some though into our ranking structure again. After a more days with additional feedback, effective immediately after 3.2.3 update for open beta I have decided to allow Disguise (Mask) to be a legacy feature adding to the unique color (Legacy Gold, Diamond...

Patch 3.2.3 is available on all servers now, with some fixes and additions based on community request.

New Features
Introducing /sidebar style

As promised, we're delivering a way to change the sidebar style with this patch. 4 styles are currently available and can be switched between using /sidebar style.
Please note that due to operational requirements, the styles may not be an exact match to ye olden' days; however, they are meant to be faithful recreations of the older styles.

Pictured below (from top to bottom): "default", "2014", and "2015" styles, all peacefully coexisting.



/mask: now available in a Legacy Rank near you!
PLS HELP, I'M GETTING TARGETED BECAUSE OF MY SPECIAL RANK!

Patch 3.2 - 3.2.2 (Open Beta) - 22 November 2019

banner website.jpg


Patch 3.2
is finally here, marking the release of MCGamer's Open Beta phase! In this phase, anyone can join the network to play while we continue to make fixes and changes. In addition, as the transition to a new development phase, stats have been reset, to give everyone a fair chance to climb the Beta leaderboards.

This update brings a few quality of life changes, among other fixes and breakage.

Some highlights of this patch:
New Lobby System
We've heard your complaints - "I spend more time in lobby than in a game!" - and we've answered. The SG lobby timer has been revamped for a better user experience.
The lobby timer now will start when the game reaches the minimum number of players, and decrease more rapidly as the server fills up (down to 45 seconds when the server is 75% full, and 15 seconds when the server is 90% full). In addition, the base lobby timer has been cut in...

Goodbye Alpha, Hello Beta!

G'day Tributes! (insert wave emoji here...later)

It's time we bid Alpha farewell and ride our way into the long awaited beauty that is Open Beta, allowing the rest of the world to enter the creation that we've brought back from the dead. It wasn't an easy task, but thanks to the entire MCGamer team from moderators all the way up to Chad and Col, as well as everyone that has participated in our "closed" alpha, have helped shape the server into what it is today and what it will be moving forward.

It's been a long few months with several hundreds of hours of development time (and still rolling! Sorry not sorry, Chad! :kappa:) since the end of August, but it's been time well spent making tweaks, improvements, and overall updates to the entirety of MCGamer. We've upgraded a various number of internal tools, updated backend software/libraries, fixed old standing bugs, introduced new bugs, added some new features... you get the point. It's 2019 -- MCGamer was stuck in...

    • It's possible that some of the changes made may have fixed this scenario, but it is expected that there are still vanilla lobbies being shown periodically. If you encounter this, please report this issue via /bugreport so we may investigate the exact scenario that is causing this issue.
  • We're still tweaking some various aspects of the anti-cheat and do need additional feedback. If...

(Okay, but who left me in charge of graphic design?)
G'day tributes,

We're pleased to announce our first major content patch for the MCGamer Network Alpha, Patch 3.1: To the Battlegrounds!
As the name would suggest, the major addition in this patch is the return of our Battlegrounds game type in an alpha state.

If you'd like a refresher on the content of the game, you can click here to see the game's page on our website, or just join a Battlegrounds server on our network today!

How to Join
As servers update across the network, you should be able to join them with the hub compass, or with /join bg (note: this command will not work on hubs/servers that have yet to update). An update to the hub with a Battlegrounds area will be coming soon as well.

Known Issues in Patch 3.1

MCGamer Closed Beta Test Information

  • 4,525
  • 10
MCGamer is excited to announce its launch in a Beta development state (AKA the MCGamer Beta Test). This phase of server testing takes place after the Alpha test and will help us further refine the user experience in preparation for MCGamer’s full release.

The Beta test is expected to begin shortly after the closure of the Alpha testing. For the most up to date information as to the estimated date for the Closed Beta Test, please join our MCGamer Discord at https://discord.gg/MCGamer.

An Important Note about Beta:
Please keep in mind that, just like the Alpha test, this Beta release is meant primarily for testing and bug-fixing purposes, so please keep in mind that your experience may not be representative of the final release.
Furthermore, please note that any serious punishments (notably hacking) that are incurred during the Beta will carry over into the final release. So please do not break the rules, since the punishment may stick...

Please take the time to fill out a survey for future Alpha testing!

Hello Tributes,

Thank you for the overwhelming support with the recent tweet as we miss you as well! We are indeed involved in early planning to start this community back up due to popular demand. It’s been way too long and we want to bring back the good old days when MCSG® was at it’s prime. We have no ETAs right this second however we need your feedback to help us pick the correct direction we will go with reopening our community. Please note, we are just going to focus for now ONLY on MCSG® as we want to make sure we get this done right. We have ideas for new flavors of the game that may enjoy but will also keep the classic intact for how you remember it back in the day. Minecraft has changed so much where we need to do some work building this up to the latest version. Lastly this website will remain in archive mode while a new site is being created.

More details to come in the coming months but please...
