Hello everyone,

I'm making this announcement finally after many months I've been waiting to make it.
Few days ago, the former owner, aXed, finally replied to my contact attempts, and finally transferred
the rest of the things I needed in order to truly become full owner of GuildCraft.

Before I continue, I would like to take this opportunity to thank aXed, for everything he has done on this wonderful network.
He worked long and hard on it, for years, to make the best possible content and make the community grow. He made a new standard in Minecraft servers, and that's something not a lot of people can do. Yes, at some point he lost interest and everything started going downhill, but before that, GuildCraft became
an amazing place to play, to find friends, even relationships, and for quite some people, also a place to call home.

Thank you aXed, for everything. I will do my very best to keep it up and maintain the standard you created for Minecraft servers.

I would also like to thank a few more people, that without them I wouldn't have survived this long journey up until now:

3DGx - my close friend and loyal advisor, without your support I would've never managed to go through everything, you've been there for me, and I adore you for that. as soon as corona is over, I'm coming for a visit. thank you.

NickyfromNL - My sister, always there to support me and help me in tough times, I appreciate you more than you think and I love you very much, you're the best 3rd sister I could ask for. Thank you.

WitheredToast - Mr HeadDeveloper, That take ages to work on anni 4.0, I appreciate everything you've done for gc and for all the help you give me when I randomly shout 'HOW TO FIX THAT OMG', thank you.

Aevox - My bigass manager, I know you and I __often__ fight a lot and have some awesome drama, but you don't have the slightest clue on how much I love you like a brother and how much I appreciate what you've done for GC and for me, even if it doesn't seem like it. Thank you.

tpg01 - As soon as corona is over, I'm booking a flight to the Netherlands to finally meet you, I wanna thank you in person for everything you've done for me and helped me with. I told you few days ago how much I trust you, and I meant it, thank you.

Rew - I was super suspicious when you wanted to come back, but decided to give it a try, and hell I was lucky to do that. You were there for me many times, and you proved yourself more times than I can count. You truly want the best for GC and I can see that, and you are truly someone I can talk to when I need a to spill my thoughts out, thank you.

I would also like to thank the entire staff team, for doing their job to the fullest, and devoting their personal free time to make our network a better place, thank you!

And now after all the emotional shit is done, let's continue -
Starting today, we are entering a new era for the GuildCraft network, an era of new things, new style, in combination of the old and familiar things you're all used to and like.

What we have in store? Here is a little glimpse of what's coming:

Annihilation 4.0: The new complete recode of the most beloved minigame on GuildCraft, with new features, new kits and MANY bug fixes! I also think it's time to tell everyone who plays Annihilation: the new update will be based on Minecraft 1.12! We have thought a long time about this, and came to a decision to switch to 1.12 as it will allow us to make better and more stable content. Don't worry, the PvP will still be purely 1.8, with proper hit detection!
Our BETA Testing Program will also commence soon, and applicants will start getting answers starting next week! If you haven't applied, go apply now, the application form will be closed next weekend!

EggWars: As you might have guessed already, the winning gamemode of the survey we made recently was EggWars. We are going to commence the work on the gamemode to bring it back to GuildCraft, in a much better and more stable version. Stay tuned for more information soon!

Factions: Factions will be back as well, with better mechanics, new features, and of course everyone will have their ranks back when it's out! Hardcore Factions will follow soon after!

Minigames: We have started working on a huge minigames server, unlike anything you've seen before on GuildCraft. Stay tuned for more information soon!

New forums: Our forums will go offline starting tomorrow in order for us to update and upgrade everything in it, including a whole new style and new systems.

Total rebranding: Now that are entering a new era for GuildCraft, we are going to initiate a full total rebrand process of our network! That includes new logo, new icon, new forum style, new hub, and new discord arrangements. Stay tuned, it's coming really soon!

Before I end this announcement, I would also like to massively thank you, our community, for sticking to our network for so long, and for the continuous support you give us. Without you, we would've never gotten to this point, and with you, I know we will reach new heights, together. So from the bottom of my heart, thank you.

"GuildCraft 3" confirmed. XPH can resurrect the dead gamemodes.
Also "after the emotional shit" so the server would see swearing 100% allowed in the same way LGBT is allowed 100% in the Western World's countries.

1.12 ;D;D;D;D;D;D look at what happened to shotbow
Not quite sure if you should compare a version with an entire server. Either way, it's just giving us the opportunity to push way more and better updates in the future, plus the version difference shouldn't be that big of a deal.

You obviously don't understand what I'm saying.

Shotbow Anni was 1.8 they moved it to 1.9 and it died

Your doing the exact same thing but it's 1.12?

And there are many issues with it the main two being
FPS and then PVP, I know your gonna say it's 1.8 PvP mechanics but it's not the same it still feels shit.

I'll be there but moving it to 1.12 was probably the worst thing that could of been done but if it's good then good job on it hopefully it turns out alright mate

I mean, to be honest your previous message didn't give me that much text to understand . Anyways, I do understand that the PvP Community does not prefer any version over 1.8 (or 1.7), but we can't just stick to a version that old forever especially when a newer version allows us to prevent a lot of bugs and add way more features.

I do know that PvP feels different, but honestly, it should be fine. FPS shouldn't be an issue at all since performance is still fine in every version <1.13.

Glad you're going to give it a chance anyways and I'm hoping that it will not disappoint you or anyone else, and we can convince people not thinking too bad about newer versions and those things.

Also changing the version to 1.12 doesn't quite mean we're doing the same as another server. I wouldn't quite call their Annihilation dead either, but it might just not be purely related to the fact that they switched to 1.12.

Either way, as I said I hope that you won't be too disappointed and give us all the feedback and suggestions you have post release.

And yeah 1.7 is the best for PvP by far for loads of reasons but ye. And the FPS thing I still get weird drops but isnt a big deal but I know how much u worked on it practically alone so we appreciate the effort to even make a new anni tbh.
