    Hi Applecrafters!

    I've made a bunch of changes to the server this weekend which should in theory reduce lag! I'll be doing some checks over the next few days to see if this works for us, but you should see a noticeable difference on the server.

    Also, get excited! On March 1st the EPIC chest at spawn will finally be available. The EPIC chest contains a bunch of legendary gear. When you use an EPIC key, you will receive a random item from the chest. More items will be added to the EPIC chest before it is released, so keep an eye out!

    There should be a few more things happening over the next few weeks - I'll post updates closer to the date!

    Sounds awesome.
    I built something for the first time in ages last night (first stage of my giant base), and I hope that I will be more active now - at least on the weekends.

    Quick question - how do we aquire the epic keys? Only through the donation shop or will they be available for vote dollars?

    Will the keys cost 64Diamond Blocks like the old chests? Or will there be a new method of obtaining them?

    Id rather have the keys stay at 64 db so the items dont get fucked in their prices.

    Really excited to see these new lag fixes (I did my part) and the new items that will be added into the server.

    Okay, explain to me, you can buy certain keys for 64 db, but where do I find these keys? And do you have to be the Epic rank, or above? Even then, could somebody give you the key(s)?

    Some of the Epic Chest items have been added now! Some additional ones (e.g. the Ender Bow) are being fixed up and will be made available over the coming weeks.

    The items will only be available via voting at the moment, as I'm trying to encourage voting this month - but other ways to get them (e.g. diamond blocks) will be made available in the future depending on how the chest goes.

    apple, can you include the heart particles as vote reward for march again? I realize you only do it for february, but I don't want to reach one more year without getting one lol. I've barely been online for February so I did not get the vote reward.

    The epic crate key... a bout of genius... But is it luck to get the key? Or is it still 10 days? Or is it both? I'm just slightly peeved cause some newbie got 2 epic crate keys on his first two votes. On his third vote was "first vote." A glitch? Or am I just being unreasonable?

    They need to raise it the requirement:

    Ranger or above can get the epic crate key

    Not exactly what I was saying. And some of us don't get ranger. Or at least, I never got ranger before I got master. Other then that, yeah, from what I can see, I don't think it would be bad if only the hire ranks could get the key. It would promote even more voting among lesser ranks. I think. Or is my logic incorrect?

    You don't want a Newbie get a epic crate on his first vote

    Example:
    No IGN mentioned
    [VOTE] Player C did his First Vote!
    [VOTE] Player C voted and got [Epic Crate Key]
    Newbie - Player C : Yay
    Elite - Player B : D:
    Players, Donors, Staff and Architects: GG

    You don't want that happens, Right?

    That's what happened. Except he got two epic crate keys before he even got his first vote. It did provide a sudden two minutes of entertainment on chat though.
