    No, it will remain to be 1.8. No sense in updating the rest of the plugins on the server (as well as dealing with constantly switching versions just to play Skyblock) for Skyblock to be 1.12

    Wouldn't it be nicer to be able to utilize Shulkers though for better storage and trading methods? Also, will the ranking islands be redesigned too (VIP, Donator, Legend, etc.)?

    So you're saying there won't be any Special Islands for Donators, VIP, Legend, Herobrine, etc.?

    Based on the post I linked, at the very least the extra buyable islands will be removed, however I'm not sure about the donator islands.

    So it's just the regular old islands?

    Nards! Now they're even taking out donator features! This isn't cool or swift!

    They got removed due to people using them solely for the purpose of farming items out of the island / chest.

    Literally the only reason why SkyBlock 1 is so laggy is because a few people keep deleting / creating new islands just to get more spawn eggs. After the reset, island creation will be "asynchronous" and no longer cause lag. We're still removing the special islands though, as they're completely useless. No island has anything resembling the untouched special island remaining anyway after a week of playing.

    What about during the beginning of SkyBlock when everybody's rushing to make an island? Will there be some type of queue?

    wow, i think island farming was one of the features that our skyblock is different from other skyblocks... oh well, gonna be harder to get items now.

    Isn't it better that it is harder to get items now?

    Really, I just think it would make the game more enjoyable now that you actually have to WORK to get the items and expand your island.
    It doesn't seem fun that you can just /is create farm items and barely have to put any work into your island. Working while everyone started exactly where you started seems more of a competition.

    Everyone around here spending $50 on spawners and complaining, while I probably spent well over $200 on skyblock alone. I have 110 spawners on my island on Skyblock 3, and yes, its unfortunate that its resetting, but big deal, start again. Maybe this time, there might be an easier way to get spawners other than just buying them. AND since Chests seem to be a big thing atm in more gamemodes, we can expect to see it in Skyblock, with keys, maybe the challenges will contain keys are rewards, therefore, the possibility of free spawners.
    There's a lot that can happen, and the fact you guys are so deafened by the "amount" you guys spent, some over exaggerating, but some not. The end is near, but a new beginning will be awoken, take all your hard work and throw it into a new island, things that are easier to change.
    It'll be fun to restart.. I did it about 10 times on my own. It's always fun redoing the hard work you did before.

    Embrace the ending, and look forward to a renewed future.

    Although I respect this, I have a solution that might help. Put a timer on island creation so that players can't simply delete and recreate an island just to farm the resources, so that way, they would be stuck waiting for that timer to restart. I can see this having some potential issues, but it's better than removing them entirely and having the removal of donator features, seeing as we donated for them. Also, if you are in hopes of having your Skyblock server being more populated again, maybe try making some videos on there so it reaches a larger audience.

    I completely agree, because I remember back when I was on my older account that had Legend, and I used to think that 100k was such a high accomplishment. However, nowadays, the economy is completely messed up to the point where players have stacks on stacks of Diamond Blocks, Nether Stars, Spawners, etc. Hopefully they implement a Crate Key Feature where players can purchase keys for Crates that are themed differently to help them in their quest of creating an astounding island.

    I'm more concerned about what the new Donator perks will be, seeing as they are removing donator islands. Idk.

    So when I first read this I was like "noooooooooooooo" then I thought "hey even I bearly use it anymore, its probs for the best."
    I spent about $100 on skyblock stuff back in the day but the server player based died out. The price to upkeep the server is the same, The owners have to either A: make more money from the server or B: reduce the price of the server
