    Recently I have heard multiple complaints about the new update. Tbh I can't agree with the people saying the update was a great thing. This update like any major cubecraft updates make it worse. After the EULA was put in place I understand why there was one but now out of all times? Then we have all the people defending the developer saying that it is not his fault that there are many bugs and that in time it will get better it is not his fault. Yes it is, it is his responsibility to take care of the server and I do think that for him Cubecraft is a full time job. This server can contain 17000 people and should be considered as a part time job, the owners can definitely make a living out of this server seen how well it is going... Then idk maybe before updating a WHOLE server make sure you don't do it when you have exams, is this not commun sense? Summer vacation is coming soon, I'm sure he could found some spare time then. Then once again NO ONE asked for a new update, some people were asking for a factions reset if I'm not mistaking but nooooo, they will manage to reset the server but can't reset the factions server. Secondly, donators were FULLY aware that the name color would have been different before donating... But Cubecraft decided to change it because they were getting complaints by donators, hmm I don't know what is more stupid, the staff obeying certain donators or the staff being blinded. Anyone who donated already played on the server at least once. Then again there are major bugs on some arcade games such as TNT Run where the blocks disappearing don't happen close to instantly, I mean come on this is a server with 17000 players on it, problems like this shouldn't occur. Plus once you donate you will be able to get SOOO MANY things, like vanity... vanity ... Vanity and yes and some minor gadgets that can also be used in the lobby. The only server where donating is worth, is in creative.... Now you can't have multiple set home in factions... Idk why but they took off the reserved slots for Skywars games, even though it didn't affect gameplay AT ALL. All in all this update was EXCELLENT, I thought cubecraft couldn't get worse, but as usual they managed to suprise me, ahhh cubecraft ;). Now I'm guessing they will lock this thread because "it is mean".

    I do agree with a few things such as being able to have multiple /sethome's in factions or having the colored nametag above your head to be more noticed. However, when that happens you do tend to get targeted more often. Maybe there should be an ability to turn that on or off? Any time a server comes out with a new update, there are always some bugs. It's normal.

    Yes there are bound to be some, but I think that it could have been handled better :)

    You are correct, which is why you don't get to decide whether you update the server or not. This update was meant to make things more entertaining. Of course, there will be people who like it and people who don't. And yes, it's understandable that some people don't want any changes. People don't normally like changes, but I guess that's too bad for you and everyone else who can't adapt to them. So as a tip, you can do the following:

    - Deal with it

    Rubik is the only developer (that I'm aware of) that develops plugins for cubecraft, one person coding all of this without any bugs is nearly impossible, it was tested by a few people too, it would be easier to publish the plugin and let the community identify the bugs, after the huge 2.0 update, the server was bug-free after a short while.

    As a Developer you are excited when you´ve coded something and you want players to try it out. That is why they wanted to update it. He is still going to school which is why he can´t do it full time yet.
    I have to agree with a lot of your points though which I won´t name in specific. Noone in staff is obeying donators or anyone else by the way. We make our own decisions. If a suggestion is good we take it in consideration. No matter if it was made by a stone, donator or staff member.

    He still goes to school and does his exams, so 1. It's not a full-time job.
    2. I doubt he'd get paid enough for it to be his job.

    I'm not so sure
    It's just you. Blocks go instantly for me, even at the start, which is where most people complain the game is unfair. The only place I have problems is the other bigger servers than us, which lag like hell.

    1. You don't have to be rude by calling the staff blind - It makes sense that they want to cater to their players. Why do you assume that only donators wanted the updates? I joined dozens of games on day one with stone ranks claiming this to be a fantastic update.
    2. That doesn't make any sense at all. With an update as big as this and with an audience of 17,000 players, obviously some of those players were going to find bugs. That's how the developers learn from their mistakes, and fix the bugs that players report. :)

    1) I never said only donators wanted an update, no one demanded an update... If you managed to read my post, you might be able to understand that I said that donators wanted to stop being targeted because of their colorful names... But nowhere did I mention that they wanted the WHOLE server to update, that would be absurd to update the server for just a little tweak.
    (The staff aren't the only one who is blind apparently)

    2) I conclude that you are not a long time player, but before there was an arcade section just like now, and in both versions the TNT game wasn't the most fluid. Instead of fixing it, they just updated the whole server, not fixing the problem...

    We didn't update the whole server for just a "tweak". It was a tweak that was included in a whole update. And like I said, you are not part of staff, therefore you can't decide whether you want the server to be updated or not. (Oh and insulting staff along with other members won't get you far)

    Lol, @superxsnap has been on this server much longer than you have. As for the bugs, they will be fixed. I know this is a new concept, but people have "lives" and won't stay up all night fixing bugs that need to be fixed. Also, this update was not to meant to fix every bug, it was meant to include new things. Of course, there will be bugs in every update, so please stop being arrogant and wait patiently for the bugs to be fixed like everyone else is.

    You didn't update the server for a small tweak, but it gave the owners to update the server. Like I said, I am in no way part of staff. Do staff really have anything in CCG except builds? Sarabadashi doesn't have any permissions or knowledge about Skyblock... And legend says that there is Sgtkuzey who is the admin of factions, however I've barely seen on factions, and tbh he is totally useless, he hasn't done anything yet for factions, people manage to abuse bugs when he is online, how pathetic...ly awesome. If the staff is like this please tell me I won't be joining it, I wouldn't want to join such a good staff. I'm not sure that you know but without the players CCG is nothing... If the community don't have a say or disagree in what the owner is doing, the server won't be going far. I'm not sure you are aware but Factions in CCG 1 was excellent so as Skyblock, they always had 50-120 players. Now days none of them can reach higher than 10. That seems like real progress, don't you think?

    LOL "they will be fixed" biggest joke on earth... It's like politicians proposing things that they will do, but end up destroying the country and not even able to keep its original promise. I am not a player that spend my whole day on CCG, I have a life and don't spend several weeks just to build on a plot. In my very limited time playing CCG, if my friends and I encounter bugs, and having the server restart every 2 min, and having items being lost with warps being magically opened you might understand where my frustration comes from. I don't have time to waste on waiting for a server to restart 5 times in the span of 10min. Yes you are right, the new update didn't fix the bugs but added new ones.

    Exactly, your point just collapsed on itself, You barely come on the network at all and you've never been on long enough to judge our staff and how this network is run by the owners and the staff.
    We've had bigger updates in the past, all the bugs were fixed and we barely had any bug reports at all and most of them weren't minor bugs, just short time bugs that could be fix by a simple line of code or by placing a few blocks.
    The server restarts once a day, how can you expect a server with 16k people to stay stable and lag-free all the time, it's almost impossible and it doesn't affect gameplay that bad at all, I've learned a lot from this Network, things that you'll clearly never experience based on your quick judgement and lack of optimism.

    If you don't like the way this network runs or the staff on it, we aren't forcing you stay, but those other 16,000 people are staying with us and the future updates yet to come.

    Good day.

    I have to say you are increadibly rude towards our staff.
    I'm sorry but
    1) She is Oped on skyblock meaning she has all perms.
    2) She has a lot of knowledge about this game mode and how to run it.

    No. It's not a legend it's a strait up fact that he is the factions admin. From what I gather in calls with him he actually works his butt off thinking of ways he can make factions 20x better. There are always bugs and people who will abuse them but if they are caught they will be in deep *beep*.

    could you just stop making insults and being rude to our staff before you at least know what on earth you are talking about. All of cube crafts staff are very dedicated people in finding ways to help the server and make it better in anyways possible. That's my rant over. Now is there anyone else you would like to insult because it seems like you love insulting staff and long term members.

    I have known this server since a very long time but I didn't really pay attention to it since I was already playing on an other server. I occasionally joined it several times in the last year, and in those times I never really saw any bugs even after the big updates. If you call the bugs ont the past updates big, these bugs now are 10x worst. You seem to be a long time player and tell me, do Factions and Skyblock have less players than nowadays than it had in the first CCG, where there were 5000 players? I am sorry but Skyblock had been lately unplayable, every time I join, in under 5min the Skyblock server would restart. So if I listen to your reasoning that in CCG, the major bugs took very little time to repair so why couldn't they have repaired the minor bugs before updating which they knew would have created even more? I am not saying that this server is horrible, I had one of my best video-game moment in this server, and shared a lot of memories with my friends. However if it wasn't for all the youtubers, the server would have probably been stuck at less than 16000 players. You are right, I haven't seen a lot of staff, but so far I have seen two admins Sgtkuzey and Sarabadashi, one is almost never online and the other one can't help me with my in game issues. What image do you think that gives out? I don't fancy creative so I don't go into that server therefore I won't judge the creative admin. I believe that those two admins in particular don't meet the standards, they aren't online as much as they should be and can't answer essential questions any veteran Skyblock player should know. However they might have been different in their past, probably better but now I don't think they are.

    I am sorry if you take offense when I share my opinions. Yes I have to admit Sgtkuzey has made factions so much better by proposing a reset. So far that is the only concrete thing he has done in the past few months for factions. There are always bugs, but before people used to fix them now what do they do? Nothing, that is where I have a problem, they might have great ideas but I want action. People who use the bugs in factions can't be caught, and what is done to prevent it nothing... Since he has been coming up with great stuff tell me what are those new ideas, I would like to hear it.
    Last time I asked about a slime or iron farm, she was clueless... Couldn't help me at all.
    I talked to her not long ago and she told me that she couldn't use certaine things becaus she didn't have the permissions. @Saradabaschi . Sara could you please confirm if you are Op'ed :D

    First, your obnoxious behavior won't get you anywhere. Second, you don't have any idea what admins do. You only imagine them AFK all day because they won't tell the arrogant princess how to make a farm. If you're so concerned about how to do something simple, then look it up. The admins don't have time to answer all of your questions. They actually have things to do and it's far more important than your farm. As for bugs that you complain every living second of your life, record them and report them. That's why there's a bug section where you can report bugs and such. Also, your "opinions" are not offensive, it's the attitude you decide to give. And so far, you're not a very kind and warm type of person. If you were patient and report the bugs instead of complaining, things would get done a whole lot faster.
    CCG has 17,000+ players, if you haven't noticed. I also think you haven't noticed that without the updates, CCG would still be at 5,000 users. So, if the number is increasing, that must mean people actually like the server and their updates with all the bugs it may bring.
    Restarts do indeed occur often, but without them you would be swimming in an ocean of bugs and lag, so instead of being rude, you could at least be thankful something is being done to fix things. But as always, you don't see past the barrier. You just decide to sit down and complain why the world isn't doing anything. So, instead of being ignorant about what staff is doing wrong, look deeper into what they're doing to maintain the server. I know it's hard, but with the correct amount of intelligence, it's possible.
    Now, as for your next post, think about what you write very carefully. We have enough useless comments from you already.

    Factions is less popular at the moment because the reset's coming soon, and theres no point raiding or building if it's just going to be reset. SkyBlock has been restarting like crazy lately because they are fixing bugs, now it does say it is open in the SkyBlock spawn, but it is still quite buggy. The bugs will be fixed soon. You say you have a life. Exactly! So does the developer. So he can't do everything right after it's been reported can he? Rant over
