We have made slight changes to YouTube ranks and the applications process. This update affects existing rank holders as well as new applicants.
The YT rank (dark aqua colour) made available last year to all users with over 500 subscribers has unfortunately been discontinued. If you successfully applied for the rank in the past, it has been removed from your account today both in-game and on Discord.
Any players with an existing YouTube rank (red colour) who do not have an email address associated with their in-game account, or have not joined in the past 2 years and as such have no XUID on record, have had their ranks revoked.
New applicants will be required to provide their email address as contact information regarding their application. They will receive an email notifying them whether their application was successful or unsuccessful, as opposed to in the past where applicants were not contacted. The email address will also be used for contact if their rank...
Statement from the Executive Team 4th September 2020
On Wednesday September 2nd, the YouTube channel PocketGaming uploaded a video to their channel regarding the supposed loss of YouTube channel rank. The video was riddled with factual errors and inconsistencies and it is important that we present the facts to set the record straight.
First of all, it is crucial to note that this YouTuber at no point made an application for their YT rank, nor did they make any attempts to get in touch with our team. It was manually issued at the request of a NetherGames developer as a courtesy, subject to the requirements of the rank granted.
Should a player wish to have their YouTube channel rank (YT or YouTube, in this case the former) transferred to a different username, they are required to contact us via our live chat support platform - as have many YouTubers done in the past. The YouTuber in question did not contact us prior to the...
Statement from the Executive Team 20th August 2020
It has come to our attention that in recent times, there has been a lot of misconceptions circulating around regarding the staff team and the operations of the network. We'd like to take a moment to set the record straight.
In all of our years operating a Minecraft server network, we always put our players as our first priority. After all, without any players, there would be no server. We constantly try to listen to the community and what new games or features are highly requested, and then try to meet that public demand. Our investment into new development projects is at an all-time high. It is also important to note that none of us work at NetherGames full-time. Most of us simply work on the server as a side-project and hobby. We have lives outside of Minecraft and managing a large server network. It takes an enormous amount of time and effort to develop...

You can now purchase items using a credit or debit card without a PayPal account (click "Pay with Card" at the checkout), however you can still use your PayPal balance for purchases if you wish. If you're using an iOS device, you can also use Apple Pay, and if on a Chrome browser or Android device, you will be able to use Google Pay (select "Pay with Card" for these two options as well).
The Titan rank is now also available for purchase! Please note that this is a monthly subscription rank unlike our other 3 VIP ranks. If you are paying by card without a PayPal account, this will auto-renew every period you selected (i.e. if you bought Titan for 3 months, it will charge you again every 3 months until you cancel on the Titan page). You also must have the Legend rank in order to be able to subscribe to Titan.
