Originally I wanted to create a post where I would announce Elise as Co-Owner but something has been brought to my attention resulting in this post instead.
As most of you know by now yesterday a large part of the staff team wanted to leave/ had left the server due to the lack of management from my side. I’ve been struggling with my mental health and was seeking escape in roleplay on GTA 5 (I will explain on this further later in the post). This was the final straw for them since my mental health and thus my work on the server has been going up and down for a long time now.
I completely understand players and staff alike to get fed up with this since the only thing they see is me playing a game while the server needs work. Combine this with earlier situations where Elise/ staff was fed up and you get a mass leaving of staff. At this point, I was not yet aware of what was been happening behind my back.
Apparently, they were planning on creating their own server. Which again I do not blame them for, Elise deserves her own server and if she had left yesterday with the people who wanted to join her there would be no hate. If I put myself in their shoes I also would want to start my own server.
Anyway, I kinda shut down at first when this happened not knowing what to do and even went on a rampage saying that I don’t care about the staff leaving and that I don’t trust them. I had a feeling something was going on. (Funnily enough, my point got proven since they were already planning behind my back) I also knew something was wrong since there were constant leaks from head admin DMS and well I went full retard, never go full retard.
At this point, I really wanted to keep Elise since she is the backbone of GuildCraft so I offered her Co-Ownership. To be precise I wanted her to take over Bedwars and let her be free to create her own new servers under GuildCraft. So she would host those servers and earn their income. Looking back at the offer not that great but it gave her the opportunity to actually do her own thing hoping that it would make her happy.
She was kinda vague on if she wanted it but kind of agreed to it. Some of the people who had left also wanted to come back and I kind of hoped that this would be a new beginning.
It wasn’t. Her plan for starting her own server which would have been fine if she left. Instead, she altered her plan for her own server. Now I’m gonna leave it up to you the reader to decide for yourself. It is at least pretty clear they were planning to fully take Annihilation and eventually split off to their own server. But it would most likely have been much worse.
Decide for yourself, here is the proof of this all: https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachme...f_-_general-chit-chat_647248977414062081.html
No need to say that they all have been demoted and banned (With the exception for shortr1der who is the only fair person in this entire story) for the protection of the server.
Now on how to move further? Well, I have to say I’m still not sure. I have however decided to demote most staff to mod since I have no idea who is involved at this point and who is not. The staff team will be rebuild.
Now to the part of why all of this happened. Most of the people involved in this story kind of knew what was going on with me but especially Elise knew. This makes this entire thing so hearth breaking because I saw her as a friend. I’ve been having a hard time with my mental health.
To give a short explanation standing up from bed is hard for me, feeding myself, cleaning myself, cleaning basically anything and of course the server. I’m lacking in every part of my life for a long time with better and worse periods. Lately, I’ve been seeking some escape in roleplay on GTA which improves my mood a bit actually and I will keep playing that. However, I’ve been doing it way too much lacking even harder with the server.
This most likely was the last straw for them and if they did indeed just left and created their own server then I wouldn’t actually have been so heartbroken by all of this. But anyway I’ve been getting help for my issues and I hope it will help to get the server back on its track.
I do not want GuildCraft to become big as before but rather a nice and friendly community with good and quality servers. This is why we have closed: SkyWars, SkyGrid, Eggwars and Op-Prison. This does make it easier to manage which is already a huge plus point and I promise you I will do my best. I hope my best is enough for the time to come, at least I’m currently fueled by anger instead of sadness.
