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.
First off, huge thank you to all of our VIP players & YouTubers who took the opportunity to help test out our new Skyblock game mode while it was still in beta. We hope you enjoyed helping us in addition to familiarising yourself with the game before the general public!
We're happy to announce that the full public release of the Skyblock game will occur at 9PM AEST tonight (Wednesday 5th August). This time all players will be allowed to join and play the game.
In an effort to ensure that everyone is starting off on a level playing field, all islands and progress will be reset. This is due to the fact that there have been game-breaking exploits discovered and patched during the VIP beta testing period and because we feel that it would not be fair for VIP players to get a head start on their islands on top of their Skyblock game perks (i.e. kits). We apologize if we did not make this abundantly clear in our initial announcement.
