World History


NetherSpawn of World 7, designed by gmxgeek.

The Alliance, an open group of players who agree to be peaceful to each other was established. Formed in the days leading up to World 7, the Alliance hopes to dampen the random violence and griefing rampant in previous worlds, without relying on a single group of good-aligned players. Players joining the Alliance agree to not attack or grief other members.

World 7 was severely griefed when a Minecraft login exploit found allowed anyone to log onto administrator accounts. The spawn was lost but the map was undamaged enough it completed it's 3 month run.

The end of world 7 marked the start of Black August
