Hey everyone,

I'm pleased to announce that I am back after I have been settling into my new place. This is a big announcement, so I would appreciate if you read it all!

Since the server launched, the number of player joins has been poor compared to what it should be, and this has then resulted in poor performance across the board. This is due to multiple reasons, but one of the more obvious reasons is because the server is named "HCSurvival" - the name alone puts casual players off joining because it sounds too hard (even though we all know it isn't ;)). This made lots of advertising campaigns unsuccessful for the price they cost. Furthermore, we are trying to compete with servers that have a plethora of games, and as such they are much more successful in getting new players.

As we only advertise to survival players, we are only getting say 1/4 of the player joins (compared to a network with 4 games). This, you guessed it, leads to less advertising performance and stops us from growing. Sure, I could start lots of advertisements and get the server back to where it was in a couple of weeks, but it would not be sustainable. Due to this, we are going to be rebranding the server and adding more games (+ more fun!).

The server will be rebranded to "MC Ages" and will contain various games (decided by you). The name is much more open and allows us to expand. You will choose the age (e.g. Survival) that you want to play! We will have lots of cool features such as global tribes and global chat, so there will still be the community feel. Furthermore, advertising campaigns will attract many more players, and as a result we will be able to produce lots MORE content!

Not only will there be more games, but we will also be simplifying a lot of things. I am going to try to automate a lot of staff tasks, and there will only be two staff roles (Admin and Moderator). There will be much more to come, which I hope will mostly come from you! Please take the time to answer this...
Hi,

This is a quick announcement because we are changing our rules so that they are more suited to what you have asked for. Read more at https://www.hcsurvival.com/threads/big-changes-to-our-rules.1175/ As highlighted in that post, there is also a 50% sale on pouches: https://store.hcsurvival.com/category/900670!

A few players have been asking what has happened to the server. I've previously mentioned that I am currently in the process of moving, and we are also trying to make lots of positive changes to the server before we advertise again. Advertising costs anywhere from $400-$20000, which we simply can't afford to continuesly do. Our results from advertising haven't been great either, which is another reason why we want to make changes before we launch new campaigns.

Thanks
