    [​IMG] Sssssssssss....
    Hello, SGM Community! Today, I am very happy to announce the third addition to our server roster, Serious Minecraft! This has been in the works for quite some time and will go live on Tuesday, January 24th at 3PM PST!

    What is Minecraft?
    Minecraft, as many of you know (and love) is a widely popular, sandbox based game involving building, farming, PvP, as well as other awesome aspects. The server we will be hosting is a Vanilla-based Survival Experience with a slew of custom minigames and plugins to enhance the already solid base game Mojang has created! The additions will not only add replayability, but also friendly competition between those who strive to be at the top of the leaderboards. More information about specific plugins, custom game mechanics, and anything related to Serious Minecraft can be found in our Upcoming Minecraft Subforum!

    How will the Premium Ranks Work?
    Much like Deathrun, Minecraft will have its own unique ranks that can be purchased from the SeriousGmod Store here on the website. To purchase a rank, you'll need to associate your Minecraft username to the forums. To do so, follow the steps below:

    Step One:
    Click on the Store link at the top of the website:

    Step Two:
    One the left sidebar, you will see a textbox where you can input your Minecraft Username. Once you have assigned your username, it cannot be changed/disassociated.

    Step Three:
    Ensure that your Minecraft Account Username has successfully registered on our Store:

    The Minecraft ranks along with their prices can be found below. More information about these ranks can be found at the SGM Store
    Iron - $10 – One Time
    Emerald - $20 – One time
    Diamond - $10 – Monthly

    Obsidian - $100 – Yearly
    Elite - $20 – Monthly (Global)
    Legendary - $200 – Yearly (Global)

    **** If you purchase a monthly rank and do not continue to renew it, you will have no rank if you do not have a preexisting permanent rank.****

    Notable Changes to the SGM Store:
    • Global Ranks (Elite and Legendary) apply to both GMod as well as Minecraft. If you already have a preexisting Legendary Rank and wish to use it on the Minecraft Server, all you need to do is add your Minecraft Username and it will automatically apply the rank.
    • Much like linking your Steam Account to the forums, once you link your Minecraft Username, you cannot change it once it has been assigned. Also, since our system is based on UUID, if you decide to change your Username through Mojang’s website, your rank will not be affected on the Serious Minecraft Server.
    • A new feature that will be exclusive to the Minecraft Store are purchasable in game SeriousCrates Keys, which can be used to open chests in game, which contain unique/cosmetic items. These keys are purely optional and none of the contents are unattainable in Vanilla Minecraft or will give any advantage in PvP Scenarios. More information about SeriousCrates can be found in the Serious Minecraft Subforum.
    How will the Staff Team Change?
    Disruptionz - Owner
    Over the past 2 ½ years, Disruptionz has helped me shape and grow the community to what it is today. From helping design and launch Deathrun to being a Lead Admin/Advisor, Disruptionz has been an integral factor in this community’s success. Due to Disruptionz’ heading the Minecraft Division, he will become a Community Owner alongside me, meaning he will be an Owner on both GMod as well as Minecraft, so that he can continue to weigh in on GMod affairs. This has been a long, thought-out decision by myself and I feel this change is one that will benefit the community overall.

    Deathbyrussian - Developer
    Deathbyrussian is a name many of you have never seen in this community but as of now he is the newest addition to our Minecraft Development team! Deahtbyrussian has quite the history of running Minecraft servers; as he owned and operated a server named ClearCraft with Disruptionz back in 2013/2014. Their server averaged ~60 players at peak, but was closed due to personal reasons. Now, we have brought him in to work alongside Disruptionz and Irritatingness. From designing a fully custom map to configuring permissions, plugins, etc, Death has worked tirelessly to create an enjoyable and over-the-top Minecraft Server for our community, and as such, he will be an ongoing developer for the Minecraft division of SGM.

    Irritatingness - Developer
    During the creation and development of the Serious Minecraft Server, Irritatingness has helped out tremendously and has made the process work smoothly. From developing custom plugins to running endless amounts of tests, Disruptionz and I cannot thank him enough for his help. As such, he will be an ongoing Developer for the Minecraft division of SGM.

    Moderators/Administrators
    Minecraft will follow the same staff structure that we have standardized on our GMod servers. There will be a total of:
    • Three - Administrators
    • Nine - Moderators
    We will soon open up the apllication forum to accept Moderator Applications, as we would like to fill the Staff Team for Minecraft as soon as possible. An announcement will be made once Applications have been opened. For the time being, there will be no Lead Admins for the Minecraft Division.

    Bugs/Bug Reporting
    Our Minecraft Server has been in the development phase for over a month now, being worked on a daily basis since its inception, but due to the nature of the server, how many variables there are, we do expect to see bugs/unintended features arise during the first few launch weeks. If you discover any bugs/glitches/exploits, please report file a report in the Bug Report Minecraft Subforum.

    I am nothing but excited to grow this community and expand its horizons, and I cannot thank you all enough for continuing to support the SGM Community! :)

    Considering this:
    Source: https://mojang.com/2014/06/lets-talk-server-monetisation/

    It sounds like at the baselevel they're following the rules / are aware of them considering the wording from from the SeriousCrates quote. So I'd imagine the donator roles are setup in a way as they don't breach the EULA.

    It's so weird to think back to 2014 when this place only had the 4 main modded servers and vanilla server for ttt, and now see how far it has expanded in almost 3 years. Feels good to be a part of it.

    All I need is the game now.

    NeverEnding It's Never going to end. Trust me on this. VIP

    I thought this was illegal in Minecraft that Mojang started blacklisting server who treat the game as Pay2Win?

    As it says in his original post they contain unique or cosmetic items (which to be fair "unique" could include something that helps you "win"). Nothing I would consider "pay2win" though.
