    Greetings Desterians!

    Back in what we labeled "9.0", the economy was slightly different because mobs that died from fall damage (usually Creepers and Endermen) dropped their stacked worth of loot. In this update, drop grinders were greatly nerfed and mobs that died from fall damage only dropped one mob's worth of loot.

    Please discuss and vote on whether or not YOU think that this should be reverted or stay nerfed.

    The poll will be open for 48 hours. I look forward to sharing our next update and future plans with you this weekend :sneaky:

    This is needed for 12.0 so that Pigman,Creeper and Enderman are useful again

    Much needed. Will diversify the economy greatly, and allow of bigger and better bases.

    @iLemon Can you explain why it was nerfed in the first place? Was it because of the cow situation?

    Never hurts to get community input, though you have a point. I'm surprised it hasn't been mentioned like an uproar since it's been 2 resets now that they've stayed weak.

    I'm sad to hear that. Hope this'll bring some joy back. I'd like to have those grinders again.

    I'm well aware of what the outcome is most likely going to be. As you may know, we're preparing an update which we'll soon announce. Many players have the impression that community input goes unnoticed, but I can ensure you that this is false. While we may not necessarily respond to suggestions, we do read them and appreciate them. The probably stands with the frequency that updates are released. We aim to solve this, beginning next season.

    I'm excited to share our new update and continue to see suggestions for weekly update releases - more on this will be part of our next announcement.

    • Add b-claiming
    • Make insiding bannable
    • Add chunk busters
    • Add trench pickaxes
    • Make nether and end a playable world
    • Add the basics that make Desteria a step behind everyone else.

    Stop being so fixated on originality as we lack the basics every server has, making this server less desirable to new players who are looking for a new server.

    Lets be real. There is no way players would miss out on an opportunity like this to "Buff" a spawner. Also make cows and Mooshrooms better man if not then get them outta token shop..

    +1 @iLemon you need to try more and start taking risks, if you keep the updates lack luster you are going to have to sell the server off, if you make good updates and be on the pace as other faction servers you acn generate more revenue and keep the server going.
