Hello!

Long time no update. It's a new month and we still haven't announced the top voters from July so I'm here to quickly do that as well as announce some other small updates and one regrettable piece of news, but first, I'm proud to announce the top voters for July 2017:

Thanks to everyone who voted, especially to all of you who vote on a daily basis. As our appreciation, the top voters for July will receive the usual compensation in Buycraft credit:
  1. $50
  2. $35

All the remaining top voters will receive $10 in Buycraft credit.

If you are one of the top voters mentioned above, please send me a PM on the forums to redeem your credit. Please remember that all Buycraft credit from voting applies only to the full price and not the sale price.

Hello, Minelink it's that time of the month! No no... not that time of the month. I know you guys haven't had that many events this reset, and we apologize for that. We have just been busy with a number of things but better late than never! I chose a raid event as I felt the cannoning and raiding aspect of this map is little dry and thought this will spice it up a little. Just because your faction are not the ones to breach the base, doesn't mean you can't snag the loot, so even if you don't have a cannon, don't be shy to turn up and contest!

When?: This event will take place at 9 PM GMT / 4 PM EST on the 6th of August

Where?: This event will take place in another world on /factions that you will have access to warp to.

Extra Information: The base will consist of 60 walls in total, varying from filters to sand walls. There will be the main base, and 4 smaller loot vaults around the...

Hello!

Just checking in with another update. I'm proud to finally announce the release of Supply Drop, some long overdue Token Shop updates and a bunch of welcoming changes to our rules :)

Supply Drop

So, first off, Supply Drop. You've all been waiting for this for a lot longer than you should have been, but it's finally here. I wanted to make sure our version of this event wasn't something boring you can find on most other servers, so we put a lot of work into realizing our own vision of Supply Drop.

Supply Drop runs once every 4 hours and broadcasts a 15 minute countdown announcement which includes the coordinates to the location of where the drop will be. The Supply Drop spawns as a chest item at a random location in wilderness, somewhere between y100-200. This item, like any other item, will fall to the ground unless there's someone or something there to catch it.

Claiming in the Supply Drop chunk or any...

Good evening Minelink!

First things first, thank you to all of those who voted for the month of June. Seeing consistent top voters back this month, along with some new names is always refreshing to see. To those who did not make the top 10 list, we hope the revamped vote rewards are motivation enough to climb to the top of the list. Without each and every vote, Minelink would not be where it is today and it's all thanks to your dedication.

Without further ado, here are the top voters for:

Hello!

I'm happy to announce a few promised updates here, as well as some new updates based on community feedback. Overall there's a lot of changes to take in, however, off the bat I want to regretfully say that Supply Drops are not a part of this update, but it is still being actively developed and will be coming soon. With that said, I'm proud to announce the following changes:
Castle
  • Neutralizing can now only be paused by the castle holder or capturer. This basically means that multiple factions can now be on the control point neutralizing it.
  • When a captured castle is being neutralized and the control point becomes empty, it slowly starts to re-capture itself. This automatic re-capture speed has been slowed in half. Instead, re-capturing will go faster if the castle holder is on the control point.
  • The warm-up duration when using...
