    Hey guys, I just thought I'll make a thread for all the Freebuild Thoughts, Concerns, and Questions just if you have any of them and just post it in one big thread.
    From what I have gathered Freebuild to be is 3 classic Minecraft servers in one update package (Creative, Skyblock, Factions).

    Thoughts: Personally, I like the 3 servers in Freebuild. Creative is soothing and calming just building builds that impresses the server. Factions is a fun base builder, and PVP game, dominating other people is always fun. And Skyblock is basically building the best island to impress other people or to complete challenges, whatever you prefer to spend your Skyblock doing. A great idea in terms of gameplay.

    Concerns: From my experience, Factions take a lot of fine-tuning, bug fixing, and in general management. I am afraid that the Cubecraft team will be spending too much time tuning Factions instead of other Minigames or even tiny bugs and glitches in Cubecraft nowadays (Daily Challenges, Anti-Knockback Kick, Breaking Blocks too fast, Hide and Seek, etc.). Creative is quite easy to pull of (compared to factions), unless they have something special in mind for it and Skyblock shouldn't take too long unless they code the whole thing from ground up.

    Question: Will Factions be in 1.9 PvP or 1.8 PvP? In my opinion, 1.8 PvP would suit the server better because Prot4 in 1.9 is crazy powerful that it's close to impossible to kill (as well as the full hunger regen).

    I would wish that factions would have 2 modes: 1 is 1.8 pvp and the other one is 1.9 pvp.

    Most likely 1.9 pvp as that is what cubecraft is about really :p 1.8 may come later though. Prot IV is not that powerful if you have a strong weapon to counter it like a sharpness V sword.

    I believe that CubeCraft is a dedicated server and is also a network (like Bungee or whatever), so getting servers for them only depends on the RAM being applied to one server.

    For the Freebuild Server, I think it should be called something else because it doesn't have a really exciting name it should. Names such as "Classic" or maybe just "Survival" would do it. For the game mechanics, I actually love Skyblock and Factions. And I wish that it would use the 1.9 Pvp because as impenetrable as Protection 4 is in 1.9, it still is part of Minecraft, which means that Prot. 4 was meant to be a little OP. Besides, there are other Pvp factors such as Golden Apples and TNTs and even more powerful swords.

    I don't think you get it, but CCG hosts its servers, and they mantain them all.
    Also why should freebuild called "Survival" When it contains creative? o_O
    Bruh

    Lol, because it was just a suggestion and I didn't really know what to suggest. I guess Survival just gives the feeling of Minecraft single player.

    I am really excited for factions as I have never seen 1.9 factions and I would love to play it! I think it will be entirely different and I am sure there will be an absolute BUNCH of long fights! Also, I have a chance for being added into good factions as well, where I trust people like @HackersDontWin, I applied for his faction, and there are a few other people having their own faction as I have heard, and I know they are great players who will be good faction members as well.

    Don't get too hyped for Factions though. Creative is the first Freebuild gamemode to come out. I wouldn't be surprised if the developers haven't started on Factions or Skyblock yet.

    I don't know what you want to accomplish with this thread. You won't get official answers from staff because they don't know, they aren't allow to leak information nor are they allowed to talk about it to players. All the replies on this thread will be suggestions and opinions of us, the community itself.

    It does, yes. That's the reason why Factions and Skyblock won't be released along with Creative.

    Just like always, developers work on different projects at the same time. It's not that all the developers work on the same thing, but instead, they work alone or in group. For example, the Survival Games overhaul was, as far as I know, completely made by only one developer (which is truly impressive, in my opinion).
    While I didn't play on Freebuild when it was still open, I know that Skyblock frequently crashed due to spawners and other in-game features. To prevent this from happening again, I heard they will redo the whole code...

    Right now, I believe that CCG's Dev team is primarily working on Freebuild, considering that it has been down for almost a year now.
