Here's the poll to vote on what gamemode you think we should add to the server! Feel free to comment or debate in the replies if you feel the need. The winning vote is no guarantee that that is what will be instated into the server, but it does help us gauge what the community as a whole is thinking and what they want.\
Thanks for helping us out!
We are looking to swap out Hunger Games on the server for a new gamemode, and we were wondering what you guys were interested in seeing. Post your opinions and what you want in this thread and then I will make a poll thread later this week with your suggestions. Feel free to debate the various options that other people suggest as well.
Also, remaking Hunger Games into something that works is an option as well if anyone is interested in it.
So it has come to my attention that some of the YT$'s would like their chat color changed? I have posted this poll to gather your thoughts and opinions on the change, please take the time to answer the poll, Thanks in advance.
As many of you may be aware, 1.9 has now been released and some of you may be wanting to just stick to 1.8, simply because of Sparkade being in 1.8. If you are unsure on how to do this, then I'm here to let you know in just 3 simple steps.
1. Open Minecraft, and once the LAUNCHER is shown, click on 'Edit Profile' at the bottom left.
2. About a third of the way down on the following screen is a drop down menu labelled 'Use Version', of which you should open that and select whichever 1.8 version is best for you.
3. After that ensure that the correct profile is selected at the bottom left and then hit Play. Now you can head back over to Sparkade .
(Some players may find it best to create a new profile with 1.9 and 1.8 being on each; all you would do is click 'New Profile' and go from step 2.)
I wasn't really sure where to put this post, but I figured here is as good as anywhere. Anyway, if you didn't guess it from the title, this is my 1000th post on the forums! I thought I should do something special and memorable for the post, seeing as it's a pretty notable mark. If you don't care about anything else I have to say, now is a good time to stop, the rest of the post is just me rambling on. With that being said, I just wanted to talk about my experience being a member (and a moderator) with the Sparkade Community as a whole so far, and maybe a bit of sappy reminiscing in there as well.
I first joined Sparkade a day after it had its first beta launch way back two years ago in February of 2014. I mostly stuck to creative during the opening days of the server, building whatever came to my mind and even drawing the attention of Tucker a couple of times with it (even though looking back at what I built, I'm kind of embarrassed). I effortlessly no-lifed the first week of the server, and I couldn't really understand why until I looked back upon it a while later. I found myself drowning hours and hours into the server, something that I hadn't done with Minecraft for several years, thinking that surely it was just as boring as it used to be. I couldn't understand why I kept coming back, until I realized that there was something special about Sparkade: the people. Everybody that played on Sparkade in the first few weeks shared a common interest; Tucker. We all knew about the server because of him, and we all wanted to play on the server to support him. It allowed everyone in the community to instantly bond and have something in common. That, coupled with the fact that the community was, and still is, an awesome group of people made me realize that I could really see myself fitting in here. I made it my own personal interest to try to help out new players to the server feel as at home as I did, tried to make sure they were enjoying everything as much as I was. I would welcome everyone, show them how to get started, offer my (very meager at the time) building advice, and even try to help out if there was any conflict (which there wasn't much of, creative people are great <3). Anyway, my efforts appeared to not go...
The 1v1 tournament will be held on Factions on the 27th of February (which is a Saturday) at 2 PM EST. The event will last roughly an hour to two hours, but do not be surprised if it lasts longer than that.
The general gist is there will be a 32-slot tournament bracket set up and we will move through the bracket using a single elimination format, meaning if you lose a match, you are out.
The winner receives the prestigious 1v1 tag as well as server renown as being the best 1v1er, and also a series of other rewards that will be announced closer to the event.
All participants will be given a set of diamond armor and a diamond sword for use in the tournament.
DO NOT BRING ANYTHING WITH YOU TO YOUR MATCH!
Please ensure you arrive at the beginning of the tournament to ensure you are present for your match. If you are late or otherwise do not attend your match, YOU WILL BE IMMEDIATELY DISQUALIFIED AND BANNED FROM ALL FUTURE 1V1 TOURNAMENTS!
There will be a separate thread posted shortly where you can sign up for the tournament. All participants must sign up and by signing up, you agree to your obligation to attend the event.
If you have any questions, post them on this thread.
The following are banned from this and all future 1v1 Tournaments due to their failure to arrive on-time to their events. This is non-negotiable: iamfatpizza09

During launch day today we had some unforeseen issues that didn't seem to want to show themselves during the BETA. Because of this some people lost money, items, etc. We had to take the server down so Froody and I can work on it. We should have it back up sometime tomorrow night. I wanted to make sure you all knew about this and that we are working hard to fix it. I would also like to make sure you know that if you bought anything like in-game money since reset and it was lost that it will be given to you again.
