Hello Warriors,

I'm first here to apologise once again for the delayed official release of Glacial, the main reasons are because both @AMinecraftDev and myself, are completing our final year of schooling at the moment, while he has roughly two weeks left, I don't officially finish my studies and exams until November 10th, but I've only got another 17 days of actual school left over a course of two months nearly. What does this mean for Glacial? Well, over the coming weeks you will actually be able to see a bigger impact with changes and updates, this delay hasn't meant we've just forgotten or dropped Glacial, but that we're still continuously working together AMinecraftDev and I, every single day messaging each over with new ideas, asking each over to test this and that, and give our input into what we reckon would work on Glacial and how the players would react.

If anyone has any questions just ask down below, there is no release date (ETA) at the moment due to our studies, and we don't want to release Glacial and then drop it as the school has suddenly impacted us. That is the last thing we want to do, as then the server will just die before it's even started to live like it has in the past. Many of you keep saying the server is dead and that continuously postponing it will force the players away, however by releasing a server which is full of bugs, and when the owners aren't going to be available I see as a worse scenario, the dedicated players will stick with the server through thick and thin, plus we're still actively looking for Youtubers interested in recording on Glacial, as they will be our main source of Advertisement.

We haven't forgotten about Glacial and never will! The community is wonderful and we're still so joyful that many of you have stuck around through this long process, which is coming to an end thankfully. It won't be too long till Glacial is back up and running, and it will stand out with all its custom features.

Warriors of Glacial Realms!
The beta has officially begun and of course, there will be bugs and issues which will need to fix as soon as possible to satisfy you, the players. Please be sure to report all bugs and issues regarding the beta Here.

We are sincerely sorry for the delay of the release as for the 100 or so of you who logged in will know it didn't work out as intended, and we found a few major issues that have set us back. We have decided to delay the official beta launch, and crunch all these bugs that we've found upon release, as in the end isn't that what the beta test is for?
Finding and fixing bugs!

On a brighter note, we are going to be giving away a free rank and "Beta" title to who comment Here. This is purely cosmetic to show your dedication to Glacial Realms. We are also giving away a free rank during our Beta as well, please note that if you are already above this rank it does not mean that you get an upgrade, or can share it to someone else once the beta has closed.

Glacial Realms Beta should be back within the next hour or much less!

Warriors of Glacial Realms!

The Revamp of Glacial Realms is now at our doorstep. Over the course of about two months, we have been put to work to create a new revamped server to satisfy our Warriors so they can once again continue and battle on as they once did before. We are going to provide you right now with some insight of what we have in stock, including release dates.

Beta:

How does the beta work? Okay so this is a public 7-21 Day beta, starting on the 18Th August, Countdown: https://countingdownto.com/countdown/glacialrealms-2-0-release-18-august-2017-countdown-clock-0 When it hits zero, we will be opening the server to the public, after the 6-7 days, we will shut down the server and reset everything, this beta is to test out the new economies and the new custom plugins, as there are so many of them. What are the benefits of playing Beta? Well simply it's just to help out the server, a majority of the suggestions that we get at beta release will be deeply thought over and passed onto our developers, who have been working constantly to produce such a unique server. However, if you find a game breaking glitch, you will receive a Buycraft GiftCard. Due to such a heavy overhaul of the current system, we're unsure if Prison, KitMap or Cannon will be ready for Beta or Release, as we've been heavily working on Glacial's main servers which are Factions and Skyblock.

Ranks:
Due to recent revelations, we've been forced to use Buycraft as our location to find peoples ranks not a Pex File, like Swift used, so if you ever purchased a rank upgrade or a rank through /buy you will receive that like normal on the release. We will not be accepting screenshots of old ranks and perks, if you believe you purchased a rank but you did not receive it, private message me your receipt number and I'll contact SwiftSwamp on behalf of you, to try sort of...

As mentioned above this will be the last announcement for some time as we begin preparations to place the server into Whitelist Mode and we will forward the IP to our other network, Boosted Network. We have been reviewing replies to the thread and we have seen an uproar of players that are unhappy that they will not be able to hold onto their rank through the changes, sadly there is nothing we can do about this issue. All we can ask is that you, the player, try to bare with us through these changes as we try our very hardest to save the Community that we know and love, Glacial Realms.

Be patient Warriors, we will not forget about you and we shall provide...

Player Vote!
Sadly before I can get started into this Revamp, we've estimated it would launch August 15th, which is as we all know, two months and 5 days away. How-ever I'm allowing you the players to choose what we can do, keep in mind, that currently I am only one man, working on five other projects plus completing my final year of schooling along with my head developer. The choices are:
Option 1: Re-direct GlacialRealms to my second Network BoostedNetwork, for the release of our Custom Factions server on their until GlacialRealms is finished.

Positives:
  • Active player base on BoostedNetwork for months, reaching close to 200 players some weekends.
  • Two high profile Youtubers one Greek and one English, which have been playing for several months.
  • Brand new custom factions release, with planned Youtubers to be released with, non-broken economy.
  • Keeps GlacialRealms players together as we're all still together on Boosted.
  • You will be testing and seeing some plugins and ideas which will be implemented to Glacial, therefore you can have your opinion on what you like and dislike, so we can make adjustments for Glacial's revamp.
  • We will be rewarding for /f top, /is top and /vote top how-ever the /f top and /is top prizes will be reduced to:
  1. 150USD Buycraft Voucher
  2. 100USD Buycraft Voucher
  3. 75USD Buycraft Voucher
  • These vouchers can either be redeemed on BoostedNetwork or GlacialRealms on release.
  • With this revamp, it will allow my developers and myself to spend time on Glacial without accidentally breaking things on a live server, or over-loading the server itself by overheating the CPU with more servers. Plus we plan to release GlacialRealms with two Faction Youtubers, two Skyblock...
