    Hello everyone!

    As some of you may have read from the previous announcement, Mythcraft has recently changed ownership.

    We had the opportunity to purchase the server as we have been friends with the previous owner, Vpipes, for many years. While many of you may not know this, a couple years ago we worked for him as developers back when the server peaked in the hundreds of players. We were responsible for the development of a large amount of the unique content on the server and fixing most of the performance issues that the larger servers had.

    Our goal in taking ownership of the server is to completely revamp the network from the ground up. It is no secret that Mythcraft has been lacking updates and new features for quite some time now, which has contributed to a substantial decline in players. We hope to change this by fixing all the current issues with the servers, adding new servers, new content and more!

    In order to help us start this process, we will be working to update the plugins running on the servers to our new versions over the next few weeks. You may notice some features and commands changing as we make this transition, but it is nothing to be worried about! If you find anything is broken or not working correctly, please report it to us on the forums or tell a staff member so that we can get it fixed as quickly as possible.

    At this time our primary focus is on Skyblock and Factions. While we will continue to support KitPvP and Creative for the foreseeable future, we may eventually turn these into legacy servers once we have released updated servers to replace them. We have a lot of content ideas for Skyblock and Factions and as of right now we can see that Skyblock is the most popular server on the network. The state that the Mythcraft backend was in before we took over was not the best and it was not designed for maintainability. It is running code that was written over two years ago, which we do not have the source code to.

    While we are doing this, Ashmeedel and Luddrago will be working to form a new staff team that consists of active members that play on the server. We have given previous staff members the opportunity to remain on the team, however, this is up to them to decide on an individual basis.

    At some point in the near future, we will be switching from Enjin to XenForo for the forums. We will send out a mass email when that change happens so that all of you can re-register on the forums. Unfortunately we will not be able to transfer any data or posts and it will be a fresh start, however, we feel that XenForo is far superior to Enjin and will allow us to offer custom integrations and much more user-friendly forums.

    I would also like to note that all purchases made on the server prior to the revamp will continue to be supported and nobody will lose any ranks, items or perks. We are however not responsible for any payments made prior to us taking over. In addition to this, we are continuing to hold the limited 70% off sale on the newly redesigned server store located at http://buy.mythcraftpvp.com/. All purchases made will help us to complete the revamp and will be reinvested in the server throughout the next few months.

    On a final note, I would like to thank you all for continuing to support the server, we hope you love the changes that are coming!​

    Well, we're hoping that this updated forum will be something new and positive for the community.
    Note;
    - The looks and graphic design may be updated in the future.
    - We are currently working on adding the neccesary items, such as the staff application system.
