Greetings Desterians!

Boy have we got changes for you today. Over the last month, the Staff and Management Teams have been working tirelessly to modernize the server and update what has been left untouched for far too long. With today’s post I’m excited to announce that as of the time of this post being released, we will be releasing a completely re-written version of the rules, changes to the Staff Team, a new Staff wave, changes to the Forums, and much more! Rather than keeping you waiting, let’s get right into it.

Rules Rewritten
We’ve completely re-written the rules from the ground up! We’ve removed old and outdated rules. Added new rules. Rephrased existing rules so that they’re more clear. Finally, we’ve condensed a handful of official documentation threads that previously were scattered around the forums to now be centralized into one main rules post. You shouldn’t have to go hunting around the forums for tons of official threads to understand all the rules now, it’ll all be in one place. Remember, these new rules will be taking effect as of the time of this thread's being posted. So, as of the...

Greetings Desterians!

The time has come to announce the winners of the F-Top contest on the Ceira realm. Thank you all for your participation in the contest, and we hope that you enjoyed the Ceira realm. If you enjoyed the style of gameplay that Ceira offered I'd recommend you check out the brand-new-Caden realm! It mirrors the features of Ceira quite similarly with a few changes. Beyond that though, without further ado, let's get to why you're all here!

The top faction leaders of each realm will be receiving tweaked rewards from those originally advertised as the map has been cut short by a rather significant degree. The rewards earned by the winning factions will be listed below:

Top Factions Rewards
The top 3 factions of the Caden realm will be rewarded with the following goods:

1st Place: $150.00 Store Gift Card
  • Global Title of their Faction's Name
  • New Gold Aura
2nd Place: $75.00 Store Gift Card
3rd Place: $50.00 Store Gift Card

With all this said, here are your leader boards of...

Usually changelogs are released selectively on Wednesdays. Seeing as Caden is releasing today, and the amount of changes we've made to it and the rest of the realms in the last few days, we figured we'd go ahead and give you an early changelog! Let's get right into it! There may be some overlap between changelogs as we're constantly implementing changes, but everything will be listed at the end of the day.


May 24th
  • Voting has been fixed on /cannon.
  • FFA has been made playable again. Staff have regained their permissions and the realm now correctly functions with regards to inter-realm communication.
May 25th
  • World border has been changed again to ensure cannons can't use it as a backboard. Sand now despawns upon hitting the ground if stacked against the world border, and TnT explosions are muffled and don't effect nearby blocks. Confirmed working with testing.
  • /f warp and /tpahere now correctly have delay timers before sending the user to their destination.
  • Name changes have returned to the Forums. Go into the 'personal details' of your profile, and you may...

Greetings Desterians!

I'm here with a quick post to announce that we'll be performing a host migration in the early hours of the morning.

We're expecting no longer than 10 minutes of downtime while we transfer the realms to new machines.

We'll begin this at approximately 5 am EST.
