Hello XYZ Community!

Today I am VERY excited to announce a huge addition to our server.

Later this month we will be releasing a whole new sister server and renaming X!

I am very pleased to present Lunar and Solar as the next dual servers in XYZ History!

These servers are much like the past servers you have known and loved, both the same but very different.
Below I will list the differences and changes.
I am so excited to be a part in bringing you these new servers, I only hope you are all just as excited as myself and the staff team too!

Skyblock Solar (Currently X server):

  • This server is not being reset, nothing major is being changed or added! We are simply refacing it to match a theme! You keep your ranks, islands, perks, money, EVERYTHING! :)
  • Adding a real black market where players can rent booths to sell items at a “mall”. More information will be available on this feature in the coming weeks
  • Adding the ability to sell everything. Note: These prices will be very low and will be added throughout the month of April as I have a lot of work to be doing.

Skyblock Lunar:

  • Welcome to a new way of play, taking a step back from OP skyblock and making it harder to get rich! In this server although you can buy and sell everything you will need to build semi auto farms to make it! This means wheat, carrot, potato farms will rule.
  • New ranks! Although ranks DO NOT transfer from Solar (X) we still want you to be assured that the ranks and their prices will mirror that of Solar and also be well worth it.
  • Spawners! I know you just peed your pants! We are adding spawners back, all of them. To the /buy and ways to get them in game as...

Hello wonderful Xyz players!

You can connect to our server in Minecraft using the IP: Skyblock.Xyz

Here is a list of things that have been added and removed from the server, web store and website:


1. Removed Y server due to low player count (Mid February, 2017)

2. Reset X server (Early February, 2017)

3. Added BedWars Beta: /bed or /server bed (Early March)

4. Added Island Expansions to the web store.

5. Added VoteFly (Early March)

A bit about our server:

- The server is now running in 1.8.8 with 1.9+ Support! This means that you can play in all versions of minecraft over 1.8. While you will still see duel hand ability, shields and so on, you will not be able to use these things.

- Our server is newly young from doing a recent Eco and Island reset, the economy is more stable and in balance with the current player base and we ask that you understand our economy decisions as they were all chosen carefully to keep our economy running at its best ability.

- As I said we have added BedWars! Though this new feature to our server is still in very early beta, we encourage you to branch out and play a few games while giving any suggestions that you may want to add! We are having a plugin custom coded for BedWars and we ask that you bare with us during the time we don't have it!

- We are so happy to have a community like the one we have and for this I am VERY happy to announce that regular event will be making a return. With at least some sort of event each month! They can range from Build Contest to Pvp Events! Keep an eye on the forums or the board at /spawn for updated dates and events!

Before I close this out, I want to thank all of you (the players) for making this an amazing and fun place to play! You make everything all of us staff do for the server worth it, and I believe I can speak for the whole staff team when I say you guys are amazing!

If you...

April Fool’s Day PvP Event – Last Man Standing

Greetings community,

We will be holding a Last Man Standing tournament on Saturday, April 1, at 11:00 EST (UTC – 5:00) to herald in our newest PvP arena. Depending on the number of players signing up, it will likely be only one round, one death each.

As the server is on 1.8, the PvP will be 1.8 as well. A custom kit will be supplied for the fight, so you do not need to worry about supplying your own gear.

The winner gets a special, OP PvP kit (Details not yet released) and a custom “Champion” tag that only they will have access to.

Second place gets a free Emerald kit.

To sign up, post your username and your best April Fool’s prank below.

Any further questions, feel free to ask MamaBeau.

Sign up's close March 25th!

Good luck!

Skyblock XYZ – The End of an Era // Y Closing



Greetings community,

We the Staff team have had many discussions regarding what we feel are the best options to take our server and community forward. We feel that at the current point in time, we want to encourage community and togetherness, rather than continue to create disconnects between the two servers.

Thus, we have decided to permanently close Skyblock Y.

We know many of you enjoy the competitive spirit that two semi-parallel servers creates, so we may be bringing back a second server (To create a scenario reminiscent of Magma vs Aqua) in the future.

---

“What about my rank!?”

All ranks on Y will be shifted over to their appropriate counterparts on Skyblock X.

“And my island?”

Unfortunately, your islands on Skyblock Y will not transfer over to Skyblock X. We apologize for the inconvenience, but it is simply unrealistic to transfer everyone’s island over. We encourage you to take the opportunity to start fresh—or if you already have an island on X, to build that into something great.

Hello Community,

As we are sure many of you are aware, we have been having issues with Skyblock X crashing repeatedly recently. We believe the crashes to be happening largely due to corruption of islands—which is why some islands have been disappearing after resets. Our best guess is Slime spawners were causing these corruptions.

Also, in the past we have had significant issues with players duplicating items due to different glitches they were abusing. This has made balance increasingly unfair, and thrown the entire Economy into an unhealthy spiral—with players becoming incredibly rich by profiting off other players’ misconduct.

These issues have created an unhealthy environment for new and returning players, where they struggle to gain a foothold because the prices of even cheap spawners are outrageous. Our Staff team has spent much time together brainstorming the best solutions to these issues, and for the benefit of everyone involved, we have chosen to reset Skyblock X, and release a newly updated version of the server.

We are aware that you all had islands you were very proud of, as well as other accomplishments you do not want to see being lost, but we feel these current issues are only going to continue to occur until we do a complete reset. We ask you to be understanding and accepting of this sudden change, and encourage you to enjoy the new features we have been working to add.

Our planned date for the reset and relaunch is February 5, 2017. We hope to see you there.

What Will Not Change:

- Once Skyblock X, always Skyblock X. We are not implementing radical gameplay changes such as those on Skyblock Y. Skyblock X is still the classic, basic, OP Skyblock that everyone loves.

- What once was, will remain to be. Ranks are not going to be reset. Everyone will keep their ranks and permissions that they have already purchased.

- Who am I? You will be keeping current tags, so your...

Hello Community,

Please note a full server reset has had to be enforced to allow future development ideas, that would not be possible without the reset.

I'd just like to notify you all, since the release of Skyblock Y there has been many bugs and issues with the server and plugins. This was due to us not having the correct contact with the official developer and creator of the Skyblock Y server (LetsGo).

The Skyblock Administration team has been working very hard on fixing all the issues and exploits within Skyblock Y.

When coming along all of the issues, we also noticed that the server may have to undergo a full reset. This was the best option for us because the economy was already unbalanced but has been fixed since.

Added:
  • Head Hunter & Purifier Minions.
  • Stone Miner will now drop coal & iron ore randomly.
  • Minions will lose hunger if the chest-linked chest is full.
  • Playershops can no longer be placed in protected regions.
  • Playershops can now be used.
  • /pshop locate finds your current playershop.
  • Emerald Blocks now boost island level /emeraldshop
  • Spawner purchase cost will increase the more times you purchase that spawner.
  • Manipulator slot machine has been added.
  • Slot Keys have been implemented and will spin any slot for free.
  • AFK Detector has been added.
  • Shop Multipliers have now been added.
  • Island Fly has been added.
  • New Spawn
  • Weekly Server Events [Last Man Standing] [King Of The Hill]
  • Sky Pouches have been implemented!
