NEWS February Update
The passing on January marks a proper month that GlacialRealms 2.0 has been online for. This has been a bumpy ride as we predicted, but sadly the player count has declined which wasn't expected to happen so heavily, especially with the amount of money we poured into Youtube advertisements. At the moment, we're reaching out to more well-known English Youtubers who have experience in bringing players to servers like GlacialRealms. Our current plans for February include bug fixes and content updates, with a massive patch arriving onto the servers within the coming days. Now lets get down to business with Top Donor and Top Voter of the month. Sadly, /votetop was messed up this season with Voting link 1 being reset by the website and us changing Voting link 5 at the start of the month, however every statistic we're using was grabbed directly from the website by @CombatWombat010.
Important Event Information:
Event: Factions Raid Event
Date: Saturday, January 27th
Time: 9 AM Eastern Time
Reward: You'll have to be the first into the base to find out
Hope you have all been enjoying your time on GlacialRealms thus far.
Finally, after a long wait we are bringing you the the first event of GlacialRealms 2.0! This event is targeted towards all of our diehard factions players out there, as it is a raid event. For all who do not know what that is, it is a base we have created, that is full of OP items for the first team who is able to cannon into the base. For more details on what you will find inside, you better be the first ones in, as we want it to be a big surprise for those who can be the fastest to raid this base. We hope you will all join us for this event, whether you are an active factions player on Glacial or not, and have an amazing time. The base's location has not been announced yet, and will be released closer to the time of the actual event.
What does this mean for those of you who do not play factions?
Just because you do not play factions does not mean there will not be any events for you to partake in on Glacial, it just means you will have to hold on tight while we continue to work on other events (which will come sooner than you think ). Our last event manager WolfiezRawr had started an event for you all, but due to her resignation events were put on the back burner until now where I along with other members of the staff team have begun to work on events for you all to enjoy. Just a hint for all of you wondering, our next event may or may not include aspects of building
Hope to see you all there!
GlacialRealms Staff Team
I hope you have all had a fantastic Christmas and celebrated your New Years in style! Now let us get right down to it, we will be processing all applications for Free Build (Creative), DJ (Discord) and Staff Applications on Friday 5th (US).

The main question we're being asked at the moment is when is Cannon, KitMap, HCF, and Prison, the answer is they will be rolling out over the coming months after we revamp our other Network BoostedNetwork on February 2nd. Currently, we're focusing on providing bug fixes and updates to our cores, which includes the implementation of new plugins, which will enhance your gameplay. Currently, we have over 50+ plugins on our to-do list, along with creating five new cores which will handle a bunch of new plugins.
Advertising + Donations |
We're very thankful for the large support you the players have shown over Christmas allowing us to reach 100% of our Server Donation goal in less than two weeks. With this large support we will be emailing a bunch of Top Youtubers ranging from 5k to 250k Subscribers seeing if any of them will be willing to record on Glacial this season, plus we will be using this money to revamp GlacialRealms forums, which includes implementing over 24 XenForo add-ons, to link your forums account to Discord, Twitch, Steam plus your Minecraft Account, to sync your rank. We are also going to use those donations to extend our contract with our builders so they can finish off the rest of the maps for us to use on Glacial.

As you all know, it has been several months since the last update regarding GlacialRealms’ 2.0 release, and that our previous beta session unfortunately failed. Since then, we have continued to pour countless hours into building up Glacial’s reservoir of custom plugins. The predominant reason for our delay is due to having to make significant changes and deviate from our original plan. While we sincerely regret having to keep you in the dark, we would like to officially state that we have almost completed our redevelopment of the server’s core.
In essence, we are ready for a full release.
A fresh start means that we can add almost anything we want to - sky’s the limit! With never before seen versions of Skyblock, Factions, Creative and more, and a staff team working round-the-clock to provide us with nothing but the best, you’re sure to find something that was worth this wait.
Before we get into the new elements of the network, we would like to take a moment to formally and sincerely apologise for the long wait and lack of communication. We did not handle this aspect as well as we should’ve done, and didn’t realise just how much we were taking on when we took over the network. If we could go back and change our decisions, we would’ve made sure that you were far more informed than you were. Please bear with us while we strive for a new, stable, transparent future.

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.
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.
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...
