Hello everyone! As 2016 draws to an end, I think I should let you guys know what we currently have in store for 2017. This has been a unique year for us for sure, Omega has changed from every extreme possible from the beginning of this year to the end, we've had ups, we've had downs; but we're more than grateful that you guys have stuck around through it. We have nothing but great things planned for the coming year, here's some of them: Punishment System Overhaul We've heard your complaints (very loud and clear, may I add) that the current punishment system is too harsh on you guys. Because of this feedback I will be completely overhauling the way we enforce the rules over the coming month to eliminate cases of people being warned & punished for minor things. You'll hear about this early next year, but rest assured good things are coming. 1.11 Based Servers Over the next few months we will be undergoing the tasks of moving all of our servers to be 1.11 based, meaning you guys will have access to all the new features of Minecraft. We have stagnated on 1.8 based servers for far too long, it's time for things to move on. The way we will be doing this will still allow people with older clients to join, however the best experience of the server will be of course be experienced through playing a 1.11 client. Should you be worrying about map resets yet? No. We will give you guys plenty of advance notice before we even consider resetting any of the maps. ZexyZek Videos As we all know, Zek has taken some time away from Minecraft on YouTube in the past months to rediscover what he's been wanting to do with the future of his channel. I'm happy to let you know that he's coming back to Omega very very soon! We plan to get a video series launched on the server as soon as possible, we're just implementing some cool new features to make it possible first Keep an eye out for it! Holiday Sale! Now I know this isn't something in the pipeline, but I should let you guys know of it anyhow. We are currently running a 50% sale on EVERYTHING in our store, and have also added a LIMITED TIME "Holiday Crate" on the Factions server. You can view all of the perks that come with this crate here: http://shop.omegarealm.com/category/742314 That's all I want to let you guys know for now, we'll be posting various news posts over the coming months detailing all these new changes and what to expect with them and when they're coming. Thanks for reading!
