Who Are We?

We are a new semi-vanilla whitelisted server. Even though the server only opened on 19th of October last year, we already have 80+ active members from previous communities and friends! Our long-term plan is to create a friendly and active environment for everyone who wants to enjoy the game with other people, like it was meant to be played.

Our Ideology

• Never give pay to win or unfair advantages to donators.
• Never cheat any kind of item in. Make a way to get custom, fun items by playing.
• Never let any kind of drama evolve and deal with in a civil way, together.
• Never let individuals control the server. The community has to with the staff team.
• Encourage an active voicechat and interaction between members.
• No matter what happens, resetting or closing the server is never a solution.

Plugins & Addons

We have quite a few smaller addons to enhance performance and user experience as well as allow the staff team to work without issues! These tools also ensure players won’t ever have to worry about griefing, stealing, etc.
