Hi everyone!

We have some great, and a little bit of bad news.
Firstly I would like to do a little write up of RSAcraft, where it came from and how we got to where we are now!

RSAcraft started out as a family / friend vpn lan server in November 2014 running on my pc, hosted with a somewhat predictable 2mbps 3G and 1GB Ram.
Some of the builds from the early days can still be found: NickyB's Magic Forest House, Nevermore's random region posts and slave camp, Panzer's clay house etc.

We started out playing with around 3 plugins loaded on the server, all default configs and no idea how it really works.
The idea of having random players join was an exciting concept, but with limited resources and knowledge this plan was put on hold.
By the end of July 2015 we had acquired an acceptable hosting solution, a self managed server provisioned with enough capacity for backups and a total of 4GB usable ram xD.

By this time we had won and lost battles with the various plugins, there was only one thing left to do for us.
That is how RSAcraft was born.

Soon enough we learnt some very valuable lessons in server scalability, and thanks to the donations we have received it was possible to get the server on a platform where everything from connectivity, expansion to power backup is on fully redundant systems.
RSAcraft has definitely grown beyond our expectations very quickly, and as such many of us have had to adapt and many changes have to be made to make future growth possible.

It is our goal to make RSAcraft the best place to play our favorite game with our awesome community, and this is a sustainable goal going forward with all the thanks to every single one of you.
Every vote, referring a friend, every staff member and donation adds to the contributions we need to move forward!



As mentioned above, some changes will need to be made in the server's structure going forward!
Choose Great news or Bad news in your preferred order, but please read both xD

            • Paintball ( Lots of arenas , Arena voting , TDM , CTF , Elimination , Kits , Killstreaks , Stats ) ( Launch Is Delayed )
              • RFTB ( A parkour style game where one player is chosen as the beast and you must escape death or kill the beast ) ( Launch Is Delayed )
                • Hide And Seek ( More arenas and blocks to disguise as ) ( Launch Is Delayed )
More game modes planned for the future!

Schedule:
The move is scheduled for Sunday, 31 July 2016, between 08:00 - 11:30
This day marks RSAcraft's 1 year anniversary!
During this time the server might restart many times.
An update will be made here once all systems are stable.

For all intensive purposes time suddenly went past by 20 days and the new server is up *everyone cheers and parties*

Can't wait for the new server where all will be well and everyone will be filled with love and laughter.

Hope everything goes well
