    Welcome back everyone! If you made it this far, I want to say a big thank-you for sticking around and checking in - we really appreciate it! Today is a rather special day, as we’re finally announcing our plans, timeline and upcoming events that you can participate in. So, without further ado, sit back and enjoy the update!

    Community Discord
    Firstly, I would like to announce the release of our Discord server! This might not seem like a whole lot, however, Discord is going to be a major key to the success in this community, as it will work as a platform for us to get together, have discussions and create relationships while the server is in its beginning stages. In this Discord, our team plans to remain incredibly active, and constantly stay in touch with this community for the benefit of everyone! So, you can expect to see things like Community Meetings, Staff Interviews and some awesome Events for everyone to participate in. To join our Discord and become a part of this incredible platform, simply visit the Discord widget on the home page and click "Connect" - We can’t wait to see you all there!

    Now, before I begin discussing our BETA plans and dates, I want to clarify some things for everyone. This upcoming BETA will be the absolute first time anyone has entered the server, other than those working on it. Because of this, you can certainly expect to see some minor bugs and changes to be made - after all, that’s the whole point! The purpose of this first BETA is to test the core of our Skyblock system, and gather general opinions from the community, so please make sure you use the suggestions forum. As mentioned above, the CORE is our main focus for this upcoming event, and because of that, a very large amount of features will be out of reach or disabled. The server will feel like it’s missing things, and it may even feel slightly empty, but that’s the point, so please don’t be discouraged - we will have more events to test other features in the very near future!

    BETA Times
    Time for the good stuff, right? Once again just to clarify, any of the following dates are due to change if necessary, so please keep posted that way you’re always up to date. After some discussion with our team, we have come to the conclusion that our first BETA period will begin on Monday the 21st at 5 pm CST, and will finish on Saturday the 26th at 11:59 pm CST. This gives everyone a full 5 days to experience what we have created, and play as much as possible to help us filter any bugs, issues or changes that need to be made. Like I said above, this also gives everyone the opportunity to share their ideas, propose changes or additions and generally give an opinion. We value the opinion of everyone in this community, and we really look forward to what you have to hear! To simplify the time-zone situation, here are some countdowns to help everyone make sure they’re on time! Starting time: Finishing time:

    Signing Up

    You’re probably wondering, how do I sign up? Good question. This period will technically be a “Closed BETA”, meaning anyone who wishes to participate in the event needs to put their name down. In the comments, simply write your In-game name and a short reason as to why you wish to participate (for fun). If you have any questions regarding this, simply shoot us a PM or a comment below and we’ll be sure to answer!

    Thank-you once again for reading, and we hope you’re as excited as we are! We can’t wait to see you all online, and we’ll speak with you soon!

    I would love to join the beta as this seems like a very special and table turning event, as it is the first ever beta of the server. In addition, I would love to get a feel of the gameplay and to see what is in store!
