    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 the situation (Replies can take from 1 Day to several weeks, though due to limited communication).

    The Website:

    As some of you may have noticed, the Forums have had some new sections created such as the Help Section and the Suggestions Section. We have also completely revamped some permissions for Members on the Forums as well as repaired Staff Permissions. We also cleaned up some cracked plug-ins which were sadly used on the Forums by previous management.

    Skyblock:

    Skyblock has had numerous bug fixes made to it which is sure to satisfy the players as well as severely reduce Lag which may have been faced by the players, however, we will not reveal to you the specifics but we can guarantee that you will be sure to notice the difference. Skyblock has also had its economy repaired and structured to assure that you will both face a challenge but enjoy yourself.

    Have you ever looked into the night sky from a view on your island and just stared at a star, well I would suggest you keep staring as a star might come and greet you on your island sooner than you think. There are more plugins to come but we will be sure to not reveal too much just yet.

    Factions:

    Factions have always been a personal favourite to many Warriors on Glacial Realms and have undergone extensive revamps to the Economy as well as the Factions Core itself. We understand that last season of Factions had an unbalanced economy and only a select few people found it possible to play. But this season, we're back with a fully upgraded economy so get ready for the competition! Alongside that, we have included a bunch of new fun and exciting plugins that will help you raid/build a base but we'll leave that a secret for now!

    Prison:

    We've noticed that Prisons hype seemed to die really fast upon release but this season we hope to change that. We have a new hub and we have also redone all the mines. The best part is...new custom enchants! We've had the same old enchants for a while but we've finally added new interesting custom enchants for you to max out!

    The Server Overall:

    We have new maps for you! That's right. Skyblock, Factions, Creative and more all have new maps! Upon joining the server, you'll notice that we have a new hub as well. We also have new Prison mines and Factions KoTH's. Not only that but we've included a new server that we're sure you Faction players will love. Other than new maps, you probably saw earlier that I was commenting about us also have added a new rank. Well, that rumour is true! The new rank is called Snowfall and it is the next rank after Arctic. We've also switched Avalanche and Glacial so Glacial is now the highest rank which makes complete sense! You will have to re-purchase Glacial though.

    Change Log:

    Everything highlighted Blue, is a custom plugin by our developers, many of the plugins listed below and could be highlighted, Glacial has had in the past or have used free/premium plugins that we deemed to not be stable enough on GlacialRealms for its release, so here it goes:

      RIP Plugin support for basic/essential plugins if we did though :/ We will still be accepting 1.7-1.12 clients on 1.8.8 Servers though.
