Why the old ranks, hungergames kits, avatar ranks, etc were removed Every day now I get asked: "why did you remove the old ranks" "when are the old ranks coming back" and the answer is very simple: Mojang (the company that made minecraft) will blacklist the server which prevents anyone from joining it if I sell anything that gives an advantage over another player. So this is why I cannot bring them back! Its not my choice! Now as for why Mojang actually has this policy no one really knows I even asked them directly in a email and didn't get a reply, most people think they want to kill off servers to sell more realms... but anyways if you see people asking please link them here so they can see an official statement from me and not be confused. The new ranks available on the store offer really cool cosmetics pets particle trails etc, and are global as well. I really hope as long as people continue to purchase those the server will be able to continue to stay open, so far it has been going well, but I am worried as it has been less and less purchases recently.
