    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.

    I’m new here, but my son is driving me nuts asking for Avatar abilities. He’s deeply upset that others have these and he can’t!

    Is there any other pass to get what others have historically?

    Though on the flip side I’ve had the whole “life is not fair” discussion which was helpful if traumatic.

    You can get these old ranks one way, legendary keys, 1 legendary key= $1 towards the old ranks, so with this he can get avatar :)

    But in the KitPvP people already have an advantage over other player by having sharpness 1 or sharpness 2 or even Portection 1 armor. Which gives an advantage in a 1v1, eventhough they payed is there any way you can take it away but also give the players (who payed) something in return that wont affect the balance over the players in kitpvp or Bending

    My point was to give them something in return that might be better so the balance in the kitpvp is better and people have a nicer time, just trying to improve the server. But your the boss, boss

    Old ranks and New ranks are totally different. Old ranks are only applied to one server but then New ranks are global which means you can use it on every server. There are more cool cosmetics on New ranks so why dont you just get one ;)
