    The time has arrived! It has taken months of work and planning to be able to provide a stable product that we’re comfortable with. We’ve mixed various aspects of other game modes into this season in hopes of offering more content for users who are unable to afford various ranks, and features. As well as implementing features that were well-received from our first season we’ve taken various suggestions that didn’t make it into season two and introduced them into season three.

    So here goes!

    New Features

    New Codebase

    Although this might not appeal to most, changing how we handle common operations and monitor various data was a huge issue for us in the previous season. Due to using the pre-existing code from season 1 and the rush we were in to launch it caused immense difficulty to properly implement new features without essentially sacrificing another working piece in its place. So by doing this, we’ve updated all of our internals to the platform and in return allows us and any newcomers to easily understand the operations and limits any bottleneck when it comes to developing new features whether it’s skyblock related or not.

    Free to Play Ranks
    As mentioned earlier, not all players can afford to purchase a rank, and they end up leaving as a result. This is a known issue in many servers, and our plan to help aide the situation was in adding a “F2P” rankup system. Similar to what you see the various Prison game modes except each rank aside from various perks, they also unlock unseen abilities that allow you to increase your productivity and overall wealth while active. Granted, this won’t fully resemble the value and support of purchasing from our store, it is definitely the step in the right direction.

    Season Rewards
    It’s clear that we’ve let seasons run far past their date. So as mentioned in various places, seasons will run shorter and offer a better list of rewards in return. (eg Top Island will receive X amount via store voucher or money direct) This not only offers a place for player who wish to play for a reward, but also allows player who like the grind but maybe not the competitive nature to also receive some sort of reward for their active involvement on the server.

    End Game Items
    The “End Game” of skyblock goes to be unknown, or it’s defined when a season has ended. Well, for this season we’ve decided to change that by offering rare and unique “end game” items that’ll reflect various other aspect that relate to your time spent on the server. Whether it be dragon eggs that can welcome and show customized holograms to your visitors, or you the ultimate party hat that’ll make you the life of the party the items are endless and are considered something of the utmost value.


    Quality of Life Updates


    After seeing the response from Season 2, and Season 1 which we should’ve done a long time ago we’ve improved and implemented a few things that have been requested over the past few months!
    • Nicknames no longer are limited only changing your color. (Yup! Fully custom nicks are back!)
    • Brand new way of voting, and automatic voting promotions. (Double rewards weeks have returned!)
    • Season 1 type of spawn with a mix of npcs, and a few hideouts.
    • User-friendly scoreboard layout.
    • Season 1 type of crate rewards.
    • STACKABLE SPAWNERS?! Along with spawner tiers to increase value and productivity.
    • A separate pvp arena, with a few throwback that some players might recognize.
    • Ability to view all the enchants and their information quickly and easily.
    • Few new enchants based on accumulated suggestions. (Decapitation, Grind, and Debuff)
    • Ability to list more than one item in the Auction House.
    • Trackers now show more detailed data. (Block Tracker, Mob Tracker, etc)
    • Chat Games have made a comeback. (With trivia)
    • Ability to manage individual players on your island. (Previously could only manage preset teams/ranks)
    • Re-allowing AFK, but applying a nerf in AFK type of mob grinders and farms.
    • An economy more focused on player farms more than spawner based.
    • Players are now properly sorted by their rank in the tab list.
    • Replaced banknotes with an ability to bottle exp. (Due to season rewards and players stashing cash)
    • Removal of various unused/unliked enchants.
    • Removal of scrolls. (Sorry about that :eek: )
    • AuctionHouse expired items can be retrieved and don’t randomly poof.
    • Ignoring a player will now resemble in you not seeing their public chat.
    • Cobblestone Generators now scale based on your island’s level.

    Questions & Answers
    Q: When is the reset?
    A: December 27-28th, 2017. (Official time will be announced after Christmas)

    Q: What items will I keep from the reset?
    A: Ranks, Island Expansions, Collectibles, and any Cosmetics already applied to your account.

    Q: How long will the new seasons last?
    A: The goal is to last up to 3 – 4 months, but we’ll evaluate that when the time comes.

    Q: What are the rewards for the new seasons?
    A: Depending on what factors we decided to reward on, they can be anywhere from $250 Store Voucher to $250 Money Direct in total accumulated value.


    I know it’s been a long season, and it’s directly impacted the server as a result. However, there’s still plenty to be done and I don’t have any intent of stopping!

    So I thank you for your patience for those who stuck around and I hope to see you on the server!

    Have a Merry Christmas!
