I currently push most of the small changes, alerts, and additions to our Discord channel.
However, not everyone uses Discord, so I have decided to post all of those updates here as well.​

NOTE: Unless it's urgent, anything I post may not take effect until the scheduled reboots at 5:00 AM Eastern. Please wait for reporting any bugs related to something that was mentioned until then.

The long awaited events have finally returned! As a little excitement before the network revamp, we have a couple events planned for you. They will be spaced a couple hours apart to try and allow multiple time zones to participate. The events will take place on Saturday, January 28th.

Event 1: TnT Run
Time: 1pm EST

One of the first events ever done on GlacialRealms is coming back. There will be three rounds played, each with their own winner. For those that don't know how TNT Run works, the goal is to be the last player alive. As you run around the map, blocks will fall beneath you leading to levels below. There are three levels for you to fall through until you fall into the void. Once you die you will not be able to participate until the next round.

Event 2: Free-for-All
Time: 3pm EST

Another GlacialRealms classic, free for all PotPvP. There will be three rounds done if time allows. Teaming will NOT be allowed. Any players caught teaming will be kicked and disqualified from the PvP event. You will have Diamond Armor, with protection 1 and unbreaking 1, with a sharpness 1 sword. Item drops will be enabled, however there will not be any health potion signs- be conservative with your potions!

Event 3: Hide and Seek
Time: 5pm EST

Now, for our final event, we've decided to go for something we haven't done before, Hide and Seek! Everyone will have 45 seconds to hide along with a knockback 2 stick which will be used for protection against the seekers, once you have been killed by a seeker you will respawn as one yourself with diamond armor, a sword and speed potions! Everyone participating will be a hider, one of the event managers will be the first seeker!

Essay:

Have you ever thought about how when it's Christmas time and snow is falling? Well here's some reasons why Christmas is the best.

First off, Christmas is a time of hanging out with family and wearing scratchy sweaters, no doubt. But think of all the activities that you can do or that are available. I'll start off with Ice Skating and Skiing. Yeah if you play hockey your going to skate a lot but isn't it fun grouping up with your family and cousins and having some fun on the rink? Once you get the hang of it it's pretty fun! Now, don't like being able to slip or fall on hard ice? What about soft snow! Skiing is a almost tradition for our family and it's one of the traditions I like the most. Going up somewhere like troll hogging or another skiing "resort".

Second, the food! Have you ever had a Christmas party or been to one? If so you'll know what I'm talking about. Even though you may have to wear one of grandmas ugly knitted sweaters that itch you have a big reward. Food. Whether it be Christmas cookies or warm pie from the oven. Now don't get me wrong, not saying that the regular food isn't good either.

Lastly, you can't forget the gifts. I know Christmas for many is about Jesus' birthday and all but you can't forget about the gifts! After you open your gifts don't you spend the rest of the night playing with them? Come on, tell me you DON'T. Finding ways to incorporate everyone in playing with their toys.

All in all, Christmas is very special for everyone who...
