Introduction to Desteria Plus
It's time to get the ball rolling!

Desteria has become one of the longest-running Minecraft factions servers since it was first released in February 2014 by Ambushment. In total, we’ve welcomed over 1.5 million players to our server over the years. We’ve released dozens of x.0 updates; successful ones, and some less liked ones — we all have a favorite map whether it’s 3.0, 5.0, 9.0, ‘11.0’ or any of our other releases.

Almost five years later, and still running the same five-year-old Minecraft version due to unpopular 1.9 combat changes, we sat down and designed a truly different factions experience. This includes various measures to encourage raiding, discourage f top ‘cheating’, add more world corners, bring new features but also reintroduce much-loved features like the NEX boss.

As this update focuses on the core concept of Factions, we’ve changed some features and rules which impact the gamemode. This includes; changes to the world’s shape, revisited third-party mods we allow, anything that affects the duration of maps, and changes to improve the balance between new and experienced...

Greetings Desterians
First and foremost, let me tell you that I'm excited about our progress. I understand it's been much longer than we had originally anticipated, but here is proof of concept for everyone as we are fast approaching our Beta phase for Desteria Plus' Season 1. As always, we will be hosting a 24-hour Purge event right before we begin Beta so everyone can enjoy the last day of the map.

'Plus' Beta Testing
We're running 5-6 days of public beta testing
Beta starts at the following date and time:

Monday 14th January 2019

A separate Beta realm will be opened and you'll be able to connect through an NPC in the center of the hubs.

The Purge Event
If you are unfamiliar with how Purge events work, I'll give a brief description. Purge events are when we remove most of the protected areas of the map such...

Greetings Desterians!
You have all been patiently waiting for Desteria Plus to release, and while this isn't the post for that, it is a huge step forward for progress updates. I wanted to make sure that we were well on our way to releasing before I gave out anymore information in the unlikely event that we missed our estimate again. That being said, this STILL isn't set in stone, so please take it with a grain of salt - but we're making pretty good progress so I'm fairly confident with our schedule.

Please understand that I'm releasing all of this in the hopes that you understand we aren't just doing nothing and while it may not seem like it, I am trying to keep communication open as much as I can without also breaking the NDA I've signed. We're working hard in the background to make sure this content is enjoyable for all of you. I understand that we'll probably release later than a lot of people will like, but it's because I want to make sure that when we DO release....it's actually good content instead of some half-assed slapped together batch of content that is full of bugs and just makes it all a horrible experience. That's...

Hi Desteria,

Behind the scenes, we've been working on a big global reset coming soon. We'll soon be announcing our plans for beta testing as we approach the release of this reset.

In the meantime, enjoy #leakz of the new map: https://twitter.com/DesteriaMC/status/1071460813175693312
