Hey all, just wanted to introduce myself formally and share a little idea I had. I've been on the server for a couple days now, and it's the first time in about 4 years that I've played multiplayer. So far I've still had the single player mindset, as I've not teamed with anyone and all my builds have been solo. I am however enjoying the ability to chat and trade, so if I have something that someone needs, I'll be sure to offer. I've also left bases that I've abandoned intact, in case anyone newer than me comes along and gets lucky with a wild command. (One of them has a fully built zombie grinder.)
Now for my idea. I've been fortunate enough that I have yet to die on the server. When i checked my ticks yesterday i was at around 2.5 million. I've basically made my time on the server into a hardcore run. So i'm going to set a goal of making it to 10 million ticks without dying. I saw that 10 mil is the limit to apply for staff, so i figured that was a good number to try and reach. If i die before then, I will openly give coords to my current base in chat (and it would hurt a lot to do so, I'm loving what I've built so far) so that anyone can come and take what they please. And since I mentioned hardcore, I will also empty my ender chest, and truly give up everything to start over fresh. I know this is going to put a huge target on my back, but i consider it part of the fun.
I'm not in a position to donate to the server, otherwise I would. I'm hoping that this becomes a fun alternative, and who knows, since I put up stakes for losing, maybe the staff will consider a prize for me actually making it ;)
