Hello I never intended on making this type of thread, usually @Vojkea would do the honours and I'd just agree with him but, how much longer will this be going on? This is an open letter to aXed, that the rest of the GC community can have a say on. So, what's wrong @aXed ? It's February 2016, and this happens Everything is going to plan, server's alive, you're making a good profit and everyone is happy. And then you decide to IPban a whole country, thinking this will stop the issues the server was facing then. But along with the overwhelming majority of those 3100 players, you made hundreds more quit. You see, when you ban that many players, you don't just prohibit them from playing, you prohibit the rest from getting full games, and therefore actually playing the server. Moving on, you are fine with the new playercount. It's not that bad, you're still making profit, so all good. You can see the playercount dwindling every day, there has not been A SINGLE day since then that the playercount has increased, but you still don't implement any drastic changes. Fast forward some time, and your dev team is starting to fall apart(e.x Tibo resigning, Arjen completely losing motivation to code anything etc), so what do you do? You hire whoever is willing to help out, while giving them 0 tangible motive to work for you. You never saw Developers as investments. You thought <Oh, minion will take care of that, Elise will take care of that, short will do that one>. And what do they get? Nothing. Every major(And even a lot of smaller ones) server has at least 1 knowledgeable Developer that works for the server with deadlines, a stable salary and most importantly, a schedule It has been years that you have been procastinating everything. From the famous Prison reset that was announced in August and executed half a year later(Literally executed, the document that the COMMUNITY had voted on during the community meeting was completely disregarded even though you and Elise both had it for months), to simple things such as simply responding to a Head-Admin's direct message. You just let everything crumble and eventually fall apart. Everything. UHC, Survival Games, Minigames, Eggwars, Skywars, KitPvP. As soon as a server that does not make you the profit that you desire comes across a bug you give up on it, completely. No matter how much the community beggs you to put some effort into those Gamemodes you either ignore them, or completely refuse to get down to it. Then, there are the Youtubers. Somehow, you're under the illusion that a 100k Youtuber will come on a white horse and record on a Cracked server that has 0 unique features to it for some pennies. That's not how it works. You gave me the task of finding you a Youtuber twice. And I did. First time, it was https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC9urQN4FYDPzjxcz9A475zg and https://www.youtube.com/user/AcespadsMinecraft . You completely procastinated the PracticePvP reset(That you still, to this day do, leaving short to just do everything), which was what had to be advertised, resulting in them never receiving the <Go> for the recordings. Second time, I went ahead and got to a deal with this guy https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCr1JdBrwlkyVyvDPLvY2V9Q for a 2h Stream in exchange for 50$. Of course, you never saw this as an investment, telling me you wanted an English Youtuber, I suppose you meant DanTDM, he's quite a realistic goal to record on a 200 player Cracked server. And even without a big Youtuber, you have still had chances to promote the server via the Content Creator rank that you refused to implement for small Youtubers, leaving this guy without a motive to record on your server The list of reasons to the server's downfall goes on, and it's long enough for 5 Threads to be made on it. But I want to believe you know your mistakes, and how to fix them. You may think to yourself <Why does he care, he's just a corrupt ex Head-Admin who promised a nerd a Staff promotion in exchange for a 1 dollar rank>. But alongside me there is a fed up ex Head-Admin who's tired of making posts like these, around one hundred 12 year olds who have fun on your server, some 13 year olds, some 14's etc.. You know who those are? Those people are GC's community. And they've been expecting a change to happen. An ACTUAL CHANGE. Not a newspaper that repeats the same stuff over and over. An ACTUAL CHANGE. They want their favourite minigames back. https://www.guildcraft.org/threads/revivesurvivalgames.62035/#post-357789 https://www.guildcraft.org/threads/uhc.80133/ We want GC back. The server is FALLING APART. From 3100, to 200. 200. And in a mere of months, there will be 30 players left to the server and you'll still be fine with it because they'll still be donating for the Pay2Win Titan ranks. And in the slight chance you do not know what <Change> I'm reffering to, I'd be more than glad to post another rant/Suggestion thread, but there are already plenty of those, I'm sure of it.
