So, I'm here to talk about the upgrade to 1.9. I personally don't like the 1.9 updates so much. Because of CCGN only being compatible with 1.9 I have recently quitted or, given up on CCGN. I do have Gold rank but I don't have anything to do with it right now when I don't play on the server. I think that you should do like Hypixel and be both 1.8 and 1.9 compatible. Both I and many of my friends left the Cubecraft community and moved over to Hypixel because of this. But bare in mind. This is only my own thoughts.
