We will be restarting all instances today in order to patch the major server crash exploit that was released yesterday, affecting all MC versions.

Restarts may come periodically as we isolate any issues from the upgrade. If anybody cares about the technical details, we're moving from Spigot to PaperSpigot.

Edit: Done for now

Hey all!

We've been impressed with the Factions release. We hit 120 players at one time, which is a record for Factions on Vikkcraft!

Quick reminder, @macreddin is hosting an SG tournament this Saturday at 11 AM EST (4 PM GMT).

However, with new things, comes a lot of feedback, some good and some bad. We've recognized the issues and have dealt with them swiftly. As always if you have any feedback/bugs then report them to a member of staff, or in the bug reports section HERE. I thought instead of answering each question individually over and over again, I would create an FAQ and hopefully it will clear some information up.

Will spawners be able to buy with in game money?
Right now there are no plans for this. The current system is designed so that people will buy the spawners and then they will generate their own economy. There is also the option to use silk touch on spawners as well.

YOU'VE...

Participants
The first 144 who signed up for the tournament are listed at THIS LINK. Don't see your name? Do not worry! The backup list is based on a first come first serve basis, and as long as you show up on tournament day you will be able to take the place of a competitor who doesn't show up.

Tournament Streaming
The entire tournament will be streamed over on my twitch, found HERE. You'll be able to watch all the games live on tournament day!

Scoring
Many of you have been wondering how scoring will work for the preliminary games. Below is how we have decided on it.

Winner - 10 pts

We are very happy to announce the first Survival Games Tournament! All the information needed can be found below!

When
The tournament will take place on Saturday April the 18th at 11 AM EST (4 PM GMT). You must be online at that time to participate!

Tournament Structure
There will be 6 preliminary games of 24 players each. The top 4 players from each preliminary game will go on to compete in the final game.

Top 4 for the preliminaries will be calculated using a scoring system that combines victory points with kill points. This means you won't be able to just go and hide in order to get in the last 4 tributes.

Prizes
Prizes are still being determined, but we can assure you that they will be super awesome!

Rules
All normal VikkCraft rules apply. In addition no teaming will be allowed. Anyone caught teaming during the tournament will be instantly disqualified.

How to Sign...

Hey guys,

I need your help with something:

Myself along with some friends are going to be doing a 24hr continuous livestream for the British Lung Foundation. This is very much a personal thing for me as my dad suffers from COPD. I got to see the difference British Lung Foundation really make for people who have lung conditions. Before my dad started going he did feel isolated, like nobody else could understand what he is going through. Now every time he returns from the sessions he feels far more positive and far less isolated as he can talk with others who understand. It's very difficult for me to explain how vital I feel this support is for him, but I hope you can agree with me that It's a worthy charity. Without fund-raising however, none of this would be possible.

So I'd very much appreciate it if you could come and join in the fun and share it with your friends. The stream starts on: SAT 28th at 4PM GMT and if you hit FOLLOW you will get a notification so you won't...

Changes:
  • Revised our frontend infrastructure. This should make us more resilient against DDoS attacks like the large one we experienced last Sunday.
  • Minor performance tweaks to SG and hubs.
  • Upgraded forum software to XenForo 1.4.5.
Notes:
  • We're making good progress on the 1.8 update and new Factions.
  • Congrats to everyone for helping VikkCraft hit 1k players! You may have noticed the lack of lag :p
