This thread is a bit of extra information about the events on the server, so you better understand how we do them, etc.

We run a public server, the one you play on daily. It's 1moreblock.com on the default port. 25565

The public server can have monthly events, this does mean we might not have an event every single month, but, it's what we aim for.

Events range from a fun game, a new feature, to a completely new world with creative mode, xp contest, etc.

Not all the events are daily, or on the public server. We might have private events, unannounced ones, or events specific for usergroups. We do this to create variety, reward legacy or vip players, or just because we're all online and an admin goes 'lets do this or that tonight?' and invites the online players.

Most events will be announced in-game, or at least the invited players will get an in-game message. We will also announce upcoming events on the events forums here.

The events will have a prefix to indicate if they are upcoming, active, or over. Keep an eye on the green active ones, and see if you can/want to participate.

Most events are just for fun, to improve gameplay and build a community of friends. Most events will come with rewards. Upcoming events that are announced ahead of time usually come with prizes and rewards. If an events like an adventure map is on a separate whitelisted server, the items can not be carried over. Any prize/reward paid out will be paid out on the public server (and you get to keep those). The reason for this is that if we have a creative build contest, that someone could obviously spawn in an inventory of diamond blocks, and take it to the main server - that would be a bit unfair hehe.

Okay, prizes, these are the fun part. Some events will have small ones, others will have big ones. Prizes range from in-game items, in-game currency, unique items, temporary access to cool features like flying, access to play around on the /test map in creative mode for a while. Or to get on the list for the next private event list. Who knows! Prizes change per event, obviously.

Basically, we aim to have a monthly event to keep things interesting, on the public server. This way there's something that everybody can participate in as long as they are an active member.

On top of that, we might have little xp-events for mcMMO, where you can double, triple, or in a rare case even quadruple your mcMMO skills gains. XP events can last 5 minutes to 5 days. Keep an eye out.

Additionally, we aim to have an event that is 'extra', such as the adventure map for February. It won't be there every day, but one or two weekends in the month. And only open to active players who respond to the in-game advertisement of the event. These events can be, but aren't always announced as upcoming. For example, the January hardcore event was spontaneous, and lasted for the night. (And something we will definitely do again, it was pretty awesome).

How to make the most of it all? Keep an eye on the events forums, the changelog thread, and of course be active in-game as that's probably the best place to see events being announced.

Have any ideas for an event? Excellent! Contact mrfloris in-game in private, and maybe I can consider it for the next month.

The game now has a command called: /event
This (unless I forget to update it) should inform you of an active event, if any (and otherwise it will tell you so) or any upcoming event.
The 2018 events are all over.
The next official 1MB event is Valentines. It will be a small one, and from the 13th to 15th of February 2019.

Small reminder that on the 18th the monthly mcMMO event takes place, and that this weekend's halloween event is a quad-boss fight.
