    Hey all!

    There have been a number of discussions and threads and people requesting for Skyblock to be reset. Many of those threads talk about Skyblock 1 and how much they enjoyed it, but most of that discussion revolved around the economy, amount of players, and general nostalgia, which made it hard to gauge on how much we should lean on those opinions.

    The way we see it is that with a couple of changes to the economy and a few small tweaks, we don't need to do a reversion to Skyblock 1, OR, we can do the reversion and aim to bring back something like that.

    Instead of making a decision, we thought we'd confront the community with a poll and see what the average thoughts are.

    Do we revert to 1.8 and make it like Skyblock 1?
    Do we stay with 1.16 and just make the changes that would improve the economy and stop the breakdown of what happened this season?
    Or do we push for new boundaries and update to 1.17, bringing the economy balances and improvements to the newest era of minecraft and try again?

    Vote for the version you think you would enjoy the most and let us know what you think the future of Skyblock should look like.

    Regards,

    This sounds nice to me, I know a lot of people from the Turkish community has been talking about this. But I'm personally down for whatever

    They're talking about it being 1.8 or talking about what they liked in skyblock 1? Asking because I've had this convo with yyou and many others and the only thing they seem to talk about is the economy, there being 5 servers and the population. 1.8 has no impact on any of that, lol.

    Not determined. For now, we just want to know what the player base is interested in for us to consider what changes should come to skyblock

    I wouldn't want to go back to sb1. The changes made for season 3 were good, but as said before they need tweaking (some more than others). It would be unfortunate to just remove those features all together.

    Either 1.16 or 1.17 would be fine to me. I like using the blocks of 1.16, and of course the blocks in 1.17 would also be nice. I would be satisfied if it was just 1.16, if implementing 1.17 would be too much effort. If there are plans of making the next season long term, then maybe updating to 1.17 would be great, so there is no need for that later.

    Lol, they're talking about how it used to be like the grinding/trading system, and the accessibility was harder so you spent more time grinding than afking

    No point in playing 1.8 when you lose half the blocks, the new islands, the new mobs all because people liked the old days with the multiple servers. I mean you could have a 1.16/17 world and a 1.8 world ,though I don't ever see that happening.

    1.17 all the way, didn't play S1, but I played this season before payout, and yes it wasn't 10/10, but I don't think going to 1.8 would fix that, eco just needs work

    @Skillz ?

    The old skyblock required more effort and time for us to develop it. Now you make 1-2 systems in skyblock and you develop easily and skyblock ends. People get bored in a short time and they don't play skyblock anymore.

    I loved playing skyblock in 1.16 but after some point, it just got boring because changing between Minecraft versions for a minigame kinda kills my desire to play skyblock. It might be the same for almost everyone too because now, skyblock only has 5-10 players in general. I'd make it 1.8 and bring back the old features, that might wake up the old player base. Some of my friends and I loved the old spawn and all the events that were happening in spawn (ranked people throwing heads, iron, gold, etc.) so I'd love the old spawn back. I wouldn't make spawners easy accessible because everyone just places spawners and doesn't build systems and it kinda kills the point of the minigame which is in my opinion building systems and earning your stuff and money. In conclusion; I say, bring back the skyblock 1 in 1.8 and make it hard.

    This isn't even a question to be asked. It should update to 1.17, or stay on 1.16 if updating to 1.17 isn't feasible. Reverting to 1.8 would be removing perfectly good features like Shulker Boxes and the /bsb commands (backpack system) and numerous other features. As simple as this sounds, it clearly needs to be said. Skyblock doesn't need negative progress. I don't understand how people are still being ignorant when this has been addressed to many times already.

    I'd like to challenge all players who voted in favor of reverting to 1.8. Bring your best arguments and I'll bring them all down one by one. Reverting to 1.8 isn't the solution to most of the issues you guys are bringing up. I'll respond to some of the things that have been said so far:
    Simply because of nostalgia? Or are there other valid reasons the server should revert back to 1.8? Also, tell the friends you've mentioned to bring their best arguments in favor of reverting back to 1.8 to this thread.
    What? There are no "miners and stuff" on Skyblock? Feel free to respond with the features/plugins you're attempting to refer to, because what you've just mentioned doesn't exist. As for wanting the old Skyblock in 2016 where people did drop parties at spawn on top of the shop building, reverting to 1.8 isn't necessary for that. There's a whole drop-party system currently which is far better than a few random guys dropping heads in spawn for no-ranks. Anywho, people can still do this on the current Skyblock, people can still drop heads and do whatever fun stuff they want to. Your only reason here is really just the nostalgia from your experiences in the old Skyblock spawn, which can be replicated, and in fact are replicated in the current one already.
    Well then, clearly their reasons for reverting to 1.8 are invalid. Reverting back to 1.8 isn't necessary for that, changes to the economy can achieve that.
    Changes to the economy can fix this issue and require players to put more time and effort into developing their islands just like the old Skyblock. Therefore reverting to 1.8 isn't necessary, and anybody who has the same reasoning really just means to say that they want changes made to the economy.
    So you want to revert all the hard work, great changes, perfectly good features and positive progress just because you're too lazy to switch verisons? Come on man. Reverting to 1.8 is not the solution for this at all lol. You do realize that Skyblock has backwards combability with 1.8 right? Other J&H minigames and many other Minecraft servers you might be playing also have forwards compatibility with 1.16, so you don't have to switch versions. If you're really keen on switching versions to get the best experience though, just spend that small amount of time switching versions or finding ways to do so more quickly. Another thing to note is that the 5-10 players online nowadays isn't a direct result of this at all lol. To be brutally honest, this is a very weak argument and petty reason to want to revert back to 1.8.

    Like I mentioned previously in my response to Bloody, drop parties and a pvp arena exist now. There are more features/potential for spawn events now than there were back then. Regardless, people can still choose to do those events if they want to, you don't have to be on version 1.8 or the old spawn to do those things. This is yet again just nostalgia and wanting the older and larger player-base back which is an unachievable vision in 2021.

    The accessibility of spawners and the economy can by adjusted to make Skyblock hard again, where people have to put time and effort into playing just like they did on Skyblock 1. Reverting back to 1.8 is unnecessary.

    not really, it's just a small portion of my argument. IMO they tried 1.16 and it failed.
    And it just feels like skyblock is a whole different server.

    Failed sure, but that isn't because it's 1.16, they just need some eco work

    In my opinion it being 1.16 had a big impact

    Simply expressing your opinion that 1.16 failed and that they should revert back to 1.8 isn't an argument. What new additions from 1.16 do you think failed?
    What about the current Skyblock season makes it feel like a different server? The fact that is isn't the old Skyblock from 5+ years ago and doesn't feel nostalgic? Or something else?
