Hello Minetimers! I am making this thread to clear up some confusion and explain a few changes to our lobby layout before this happens sometime this week. Before I say anything else, I'd like to explain what's going on with Skyblock. I originally stated that Skyblock would return by this weekend. Due to a crazy amount of work related to Empires, my mom's 50th birthday and other things, I was not able to get the new Skyblock up by this weekend. I apologize for this. Unless I run into some extreme issues, Skyblock will return this week (Saturday at the latest). Skyblock will be getting its rightful lobby portal back, too. About that... When the updated Skyblock server is released, it will get its portal back (and yes, the portal will change back to obsidian). Empires will then get its own portal front and center between the Skywars portals and the Survival portal. Those of you who know the lobby well enough are probably aware that this wouldn't be symmetrical and would look very ugly (especially to those with OCD). I am going to deal with this by consolidating the Skywars servers into one Skywars server so that the Skywars portal is 3 blocks wide (like the other servers) instead of the current 5. This will allow me to symmetrically implement an Empires portal alongside Skywars and Survival. I'm still working out the logistics of merging Skywars statistics, but the merge will work out nicely. Empires will then have its own, potentially plus-sized (and definitely shiny) portal front and center. The little creeperhead podium with links to Minetime's website will either be moved or removed as it is directly in front of where the Empires portal is going to be.
