Hi everyone,

It's been a hell of a ride these few months and certainly for me and I'm sure for many of you as well that it is hard to believe that already half a year has passed and we are well into 2020. It has also been a few months of great changes here at NetherGames and the server has grown in ways that none of us on the Executive Team could have imagined at the start of the year.

A big part of NetherGames is certainly the large community that we have and I think that it is very important that we are transparent with the considerations & decisions and the work that we are doing to improve the server for all players. This post will address a couple of topics.

First off, I want to talk about server growth and our network infrastructure. At the start of the year when we were averaging around 300 players, we were running only two nodes - 1 in Germany mainly catering to players in the EU and 1 in the US mainly catering to players in the Americas. Initially towards the end of...

This week's updates include:
  • New node servers in Germany and the US (2.5x more powerful) to host proxy and server lobbies
  • 2nd US proxy scrapped
  • Minor bug fixes to all game modes
  • Only final deaths are now counted in Bedwars game statistics

Our entire team work hard to bring new updates every week to our network to make the best possible experience for our players.
Thank you to any players who have reported bugs or issues! If you do see a bug, please report it to us - ngmc.co/lc or to #bugs on our Discord server - ngmc.co/d

Voter Rank Tag Discontinued

  • 1,770
  • 30
Hello everyone!

Today we are announcing that rank tags for Voters will no longer be shown.

First issued in 2016 when we were a smaller server, we feel as though now is the right time to discontinue the Voter rank tag.

While the same benefits will continue to be granted to players who vote for NetherGames and claim their rewards, a VOTER rank in name tags and chat will no longer exist.

At the time of writing, the perks offered to voters include:
  • x1.25 personal XP boost (unlike VIP rank game-wide boosts)
  • 5 credits per vote
  • 100 XP per vote
  • Access to Mega Creative on the Creative server (2 plots)

Let us know if you have any questions by replying to this thread.
