    I've been wondering what happened between 2015 to now. I have left this community and jumped back at random times never finding the same appeal as before as my friends have moved on.
    So those who were still active here when I left in 2018 what really happened to this server to cause it being this low on players?

    Interest & Time.

    People lose interest quickly these days; pretty much sums it up.

    hmm... let me see...
    • People growing up to realize being (staff) on a dying minecraft community is utterly useless and a waste of personal time
    • The owners have progressively stopped caring about the server and just letting it die. The main focus of the server now is the little profit that's being generated from it. It was kind of a red flag when they announced they were offering players to pay for unmutes and unbans...
    • There are literally no (competent) staff left (bet this will be removed because the staff get offended and think I'm "targeting" them when really it's just the utter truth)
    • No updates are being made, which kind of ties back to the second point of just letting the server die. Literally, saying "it will just die again" is like saying you don't want to work because eventually you're gonna be fired, or you don't want to drink because you're just gonna get thirsty again. Like what kind of mindset is that?? If it fails then it fails, you never know if you don't fucking try
    • Did I also mention the tremendous amounts of desperation for staff to monitor the 85 people still playing on Skyblock and Factions
    you probably gonna say "StOp beInG tOxIc pRoGTrAsh!11" but this is literally the brutal truth. the server is dead and i witnessed it die first hand. if you're a staff member and you actually take being a moderator on a server is less than 100 players on a weekend seriously, you need to go outside. get a job, get a girlfriend, do something with your life and get off minecraft. at this point,

    i'm not even trying to be toxic, so don't get your panties in a wad, i just want people to understand just a FEW of the reasons behind why this server is now the way it is

    Oh, Alright thanks. It's just sad to see one of the best moments of my life just laying on the ground gasping for air. I gotta still thank this server for making me learn english and improve my grammar, tons of friends made over the years and stuff. Hearing this I am not suprised if it will close down soon.

    Lack of interest is probably the biggest factor. Just this single thing results in:
    • Players leaving
    • Players losing friends and losing even more interest
    • Players/Staff/Owners not wanting to invest time into development of new Suggestions/features/games/updates (this is also why we will likely never see a non 1.8 game on here)
    • Removal of games (because they aren't interesting anyone to have players)
    • Updates being made only on games that benefit the small remaining portion of the server
    Without interest, there is no motivation. Just continue to do things out of obligation until eventually there is not enough interest left to maintain that.
    I'm glad you got some benefits to your life from the server.

    you know you guys updated factions not to long ago right? factions and skyblock are what is keeping this server barely alive. i wouldn't say that updates are being made only on games that have a small player base, it's just all the servers have no players or just die again eventually

    and with the rest of your points, you're not wrong at all, i actually agree with them. they literally refuse to update the server and that plays a huge role in why it's dying so fast

    I didn't say updates are being made where there is a small player base. I said the server is so small now that only a couple of game modes even get updates. For example, I don't predict OITC, HC, Parkour, FarmKing of even Skyblock ever getting another update. Factions and Kitpvp are the only ones that people expect updates on and honestly, I'm not sure how long this is maintainable.
