Many players have been asking about the server reset and speculating what may and may not happen. Time to set the record straight so if you see someone asking you can direct them to this article.
When is the reset?
At this time we have no exact date but it will be in early 2020. So sometime between January and June. We will inform players with a server announcement 6 weeks prior with a reset date. Until then don’t panic and continue playing as normal.
WE ARE NOT RESETTING FOR 1.15!
We will update but not reset.
What is getting reset?
Shorter list is what doesn’t get reset, the creative world and player ranks. So say goodbye to the survival world, your balances, inventories, enderchests etc. They will all be reset so everyone starts off on the same even playing field.
Can we keep our builds?
You are welcome to build it in the creative world but do not ask staff to copy it for you. They are all busy enough.
What happens to the donator regions and perks?
Donator regions, warps and player perks will be reset so donators will get a whole new 200×200 region and their 2 warps. Same with the fly command, players who paid for this perk keep it.
Whats the theme for the next map?
That will be decided with a public vote when we announce the date for the reset. We will put out a call for theme suggestions and from there a public poll will be set up. Top voted theme will become the 2020 Cooee spawn theme
What about the plugins? Whats changing?
Not a lot of changes with the plugins, mainly how money will be made. Jobs will be replaced with a quests based plugin. You can also make money with the shop.
Will the server go into chaos mode before the reset?
Yes, 2 weeks before the server goes down for reset maintenance players will be allowed to grief other players, blow up builds etc. Donators can use their regions to stop it happening to their base if they wish. We may even include meteor strikes for this time period.
TL/DR – Server will reset next year, everything but creative and ranks is reset. Don’t panic until then.
