Hello, hello, Desteria! Sensational news for all brave fighters out there. Our beloved gamemode, Free For All, has been made live on our network - players can access it anytime from the realm hubs.
Foreword
At the behest of the production team - and myself, I'd like to make one last sincere apology to the community. This is long overdue. There were unforeseen factors, of course. We didn't intentionally sit around twiddling our thumbs and playing darts while the network crumbled around us, but it is still our responsibility to provide quality content on time - a responsibility that had not been adequately met this update.

Onto the actual update: next to nothing had been kept from the previous versions of FFA - this has been a complete re-haul. Therefore, I strongly recommend all players preparing to take part in this blood-fest to give this announcement a good read-through, even old FFA veterans. Let's begin!

Special thanks to @OhBlihv, our fantastical developer, for working so hard under pressure and producing exactly what was needed.

New Map
Starting with aesthetic...

Hello everyone. I know it has been a while since I have made a post, however I decided that todays announcement should be made by me. And yes, I know this post is very well overdue, but it is finally time to tell you what our plans are for completionist, and why it isn't here yet.

Before I Begin
I would like to start by saying that there will be no comment winner on this post. I know many of you are angry, but I am going to say nice and clear right now, that any negative behaviour caused by this post will not be tolerated. If any player reads this post, then starts to bust a spleen about how hard their life is without Completionist, they can be restricted and removed without warning.

The Explanation
Now, time to explain why it isn't here yet. Since the very beginning of 5.0, we planned on opening up completionist. It was going to be different, new and it was meant to be on-time, but it wasn't. What we weren't prepared for was the rush of issues and bugs that followed after the initial release of 5.0 - I know many of you don't understand and never will, but 5.0 changed 50% of the back-end of all the...

Hello, hello, Desteria! A couple of small updates in this week's announcement, but rest assured: our frequent meetings have come to fruition and, if all goes well, tremendous things will be coming to us before this eventful year comes to an end.

Aura Re-haul
No more bewildered "how do I turn it ons", no more miserable players wondering if their purchase didn't work, no more having to memorize several different lines of command just to look pretty. It's no secret that the aura plugin utilized an odd system, requiring an entirely different command for every aura. However, as of last night, a new plugin has been put into our systems - now, all you have to do is type "/aura" and you'll be greeted with a lovely and maneuverable GUI that will make it much easier to look all nice and sparkly in front of your friends and enemies!

Hello hello, Desteria! As the month of September draws to a close and the festival of spooksies creeps near, it's my pleasure to bring you another sated announcement of good things to come.

Aesthetic Changes
If you've paid our forests a visit tonight, you might have already seen a few small changes that we've put together to enhance the aesthetic pleasure of Desteria. For one, the hubs have been meticulously decorated by our delightful team. From little pumpkins and mushrooms to the very big, slightly hungry skull that has replaced our realm portal, the forests of Desteria are in full preparation for the scariest festival of the year. Our server icon has also been updated to fit the part. From all of us at Desteria, we wish the community a happy October and a very joyous Halloween!

Hello hello Desteria, I'm here again once more tonight to bring great tidings! Not only has our efforts to freshen the our battle arena come to fruit, but we've also opened a huge opportunity for all and everyone to bring home huge goodies from our online store.

PvP Arena Update
As many have noticed already, the PvP arena has been given a massive makeover.
Firstly, the bothersome pieces of land that hinder movement have been removed entirely, allowing battles to progress without the occasional someone getting caught on a piece of dirt. On the same note, all trees except those bordering the field have also been cut down, leaving more space for fighting and less for tripping.

[​IMG]

The spawn building has been raised greatly, to prevent those pesky bow-hoppers from escaping the deaths they deserve, and a few enchantment tables have been added to it for easier gear enhancement. Glowstone also now speckles the floor for easier fighting past sunset.

Last but not least, all water pools have been drained and replaced with glittering glass, so that battles do not unexpectedly, and unpleasantly turn...
