5 Games Up!

AntVenom a posted Mar 24, 14


Hey all! Sorry for not making a post right when the server went up, but as you can imagine, things have been a bit hectic around here lately. Thankfully, the HARDEST part of setting up the server is done. It gets easier from here on out.

Before I go any further, I need to thank MCProHosting.com for not only hosting this server, but for doing the development work on it all! That's right. I'm not in the actual coding process at all. I let them know how I want things done, and they roll with that. They've all been absolute bosses lately, pulling late nights (to my dismay) just to get things done for you all! So definitely go check MCProHosting.com out, because for the rest of March, they're doing a 75% off sale for the first month of any server you buy, even the Bedrock Plan!

Anyways, We now have Leaderboard Survival, Party Time, Deadly Descent, Rocket Rumble, & Color Zone Paintball up! Next on the list of things to do are bug fixing, making every game look more aesthetically identical through the boss bar, scoreboard, etc...and finishing Survival Bingo & Hungry Games!
Hey everyone. Been a while since I've posted here. I just wanted to let you all know, that myself & the MCProHosting Development team have been working on preparing, and releasing a Minecraft server that will raise the bar of quality to a level only reached by a few.

In this post, I will be explaining how the "Stress Test" phase is going to work, so when the server goes down, you know what's going on.

So, on Friday, at 6pm EST, mc.antvenom.com will go live in a "Stress Test" phase. What this means is, the server will be up and closely monitored by myself and the entire development team to document any and all bugs that are found. Sometime on Monday the 24th, the server will go down, and remain down until Friday the 28th, at 6pm EST again. 

We're taking the server down during that time to have uninterrupted time to fix the bugs that were found, and to test those fixes. Then, on March 28th, we will put the server back up for another round of stress testing. This will be the same routine as before, and on March 31st, the server will go down again for another round of bug fixing.

However, on April 4th, the server will hit "Alpha" phase, and remain up from 6pm EST onward, and won't go down for maintenance again. But understand that "Alpha" does mean that some bugs will be anticipated, though hopefully will be HEAVILY minimized by the stress tests.

What is the main difference between "Alpha" and "Beta"? We will NOT be selling ranks during the Alpha phase. This is to allow us to see how our in-game currency system is going to work, and to make any adjustments required. This will also give us some time to polish any chat notifications, and just make everything feel much cleaner.

After the "Alpha" period ends (Likely sometime in early May), we will WIPE all collected currencies and ranks, and begin selling ranks. Stats will not be reset from the "Beta" phase onward. We just don't want to sell ranks during Alpha, and have people angry that they lost their well earned coins, or lost coins that they bought.

"Beta" will be a VERY stable state of the server, the only real thing setting it apart from a "Final" state is we will have EVERY planned Mini-Game finished, release, and polished, as well as make sure that EVERY map for EVERY game is completely original.

That's it for now! Hope you enjoy, and I hope this post hasn't been too long!
