    So some of you know me as Brick_Master_Raj, but some of you know me as RogerPlaysMC. My question: What makes you come back to Desteria after each reset?

    The Factions community has been dwindling for years due to the increased toxicity coupled with being stuck in a three and a half year old Minecraft version (which makes getting new players to the game very challenging). New Factions servers die out quickly without massive PayPal rewards, and old ones without the payouts have only a fraction of their past player count.

    So why do you come back to Desteria, or any Factions server in general? Is it that you already have a rank here, so why not? Is it the community? Is it the server setup? I’m truly wondering.

    This post is simply to get a feel for how the community is retained, nothing else.

    Aren't you the dev for iPinto's server that rocks a towering playerbase of 3?

    Has she seen this yet?

    Yes I am. But that’s not the topic of this post.

    I have my ranks here and I don't want to spend any money on Minecraft again, but the main reason I stay here is because of the community on Desteria.

    Cheap gym rates. My local YMCA recognizes our server's status as a christian organization and offers its volunteers a discount.

    Curiosity on what isn't happening.. honestly, it used to be the community but it isn't even that anymore. I'm just lurking and waiting for some actual content updates and.. maybe some staff changes.

    Mainly to tell new players that I demand their respect because I'm a legend of the game and then they proceed to call me a random, that or either just to trigger people cos it's funny how angry some people get on a Minecraft forum
