    Hello all! I am sure that you're all aware but Mojang has made changes to the EULA that governs how people can monetise their server. Whilst this is very "dictator" esque this is neither the time nor the place to discuss the issue, I will be releasing a blog post on my personal site on the 1st of August so if you wish to read that I will link it here when it is available.

    So let's get the bad news out of the way. As I have mentioned the EULA affects ALL Minecraft servers that accept donations etc. This means that we have had to modify some of our games to make them compliant with the new rules. Here are the games/areas that have had certain features changed:
    - Removed daily points for donators.
    - Removed donator kits from Hide and Seek, Survival Games and Skywars and SCB. (Ender-Pearl etc.)
    - KitPVP kits are now the same level for everyone.
    - Removed random item at spawn for donors in Assassination.
    - Removed WorldEdit from Creative.
    - Removed more plots for donors in creative (Plots that are already claimed will stay).

    Now for the good news! We will be adding features back in to our server over the coming months that will enhance games (but not change them because Mojang won't let us), things like vanity items will be coming soon (coloured Armour, names etc).

    Cube Craft is only possible because of the community that we have around the server. This is not just the donations but the people that play on the server and the staff that help us keep the server on the straight and narrow. The changes that we have made are so that we are compliant with the new EULA, our hands are tied.

    We had options on what we could do and whilst we would have loved to not change anything and let Mojang have to deal with us we feel it easier to comply.

    We would encourage you to email Mojang and explain that you are unhappy with the changes that they have made with the EULA and that it makes you stop wanting to play Minecraft. You can email them here: https://help.mojang.com/customer/portal/emails/new

    Thank you for all your support and we hope to be bringing you new games and features for a long time to come! If you have any questions please leave a post below and we will try and respond.

    TO CLARIFY: There will be future updates which will bring back most features in the form of in-game purchases via coins and tokens, also, please avoid raging.

    As a Gold donor and long-time member of Cubecraft, I really don't mind that you guys are doing this. I hope the rest of the community is as understanding. Cubecraft is a great server and I fully believe that it can survive this EULA stupidity. Long Live Cubecraft!

    If Only Mojang Never thought about Realms. I Think this is a attempt to Make Money Off of realms. Good Luck CCG, we shouldn't let this stop us. (though i will miss W/E and More Plots alot though.)

    We'd appreciate it if you didn't comment like that, I've warned you ingame about comments like that.

    Its something they force us to do, we don't want to remove all of these features, but if we don't they will likely do something against us, such as shutting us down, or suing us.

    Guys, donating is to help the server, not get good items. You should think before donating before actually doing it. CubeCraft gave perks out because people DID donate, not so people donate for the perks only. Think about how your money will effect the server, not think about the perks. Do you want the server to be better? Well, it seems like you did, because you donated.

    This is completely unfair to all servers. Mojang is clearly just treating any servers that aren't realms differently. This happens in many ways such as the new EULA and it seems that regular login sessions are always timing out whereas mojangs realms are always up 99.878% of the time. I wish Cubecraft the best of luck in dealing with mojangs idiocy and you have my ongoing support.

    And as Jinjo said, it won't be a COMPLETE waste of money.
