    Alongside these changes, we will be restructuring our server ranks (reducing from a 7-rank system to 3 ranks, as well as adding temporary/lifetime ranks). For those concerned about your current purchases, there is nothing to worry as we will make sure you won't lose anything you've previously bought. More information about these changed will be released later in the week as our next map approaches.

    Here are some awesome pictures of our builds for you to prepare yourself for the next map: http://imgur.com/a/hI1Nr/all

    We hope to see you on and hyped!

    Awesome, can't wait! Thanks Sainttx for the updates, and for everything in Map 16!

    To clarify on the "Kick and Killing" rule update, this does NOT mean that you can be kicked and killed. Because you get tped out of the claim when kicked (even if you're offline), the "Kick and Killing" rule is just simply not necessary anymore.
