As of Saturday the 21st the server will be in a staff only lockdown to finish up reset corrections and bugs reported by active players.
As many of you are aware we will be having a server reset on Monday the 23rd of October. I am aware this community hates resets happening every month and I can assure that I will not let that happen again. I would like this server to have a reset atleast once a year. Allowing players to work together in events or faction raids.
When I arrived back to surreal a few weeks ago I saw inactivity and bugs..... I never wanted anything bad happen to this server especially since its been active and running for so many years now. I want the best for this server and its community.
I have fixed the economy by making things harder to achieve. You will now need to upgrade spawners via exp which involves you actually playing and not afking on the server to get ahead of other factions :o. I know a lot of players criticize the server for being "dead" or not good enough, but we all need to help out to bring what we loved so much about this server back!
Here is a list of everything I patched/will do/nerfed/and buffed.
Economy- As said before you will need to upgrade your spawners via exp earned by killing mobs from your grinders. You can still use money to buy these spawners from shop however they will be way more expensive to prevent afking all day for factions top.
Shop- Along with the economy prices will be changed. Farming and mining is always a good way of making money to achieve your first spawner! I fixed creeper eggs that weren't showing up in the raiding tab and balanced prices between mob drops.
Duel- Once the reset is running smoothly for you guys Vrixirion and I will be introducing new duels maps and kits for you all to use!
Mob Arena- Killing mobs and the boss is now fixed. There are now better rewards for mob arena and it is a good way to level up your mcmmo stats. The gear is buffed aswell so you don't die on round 10.
Sellwand- Sellwand is now updated with the shopgui economy and not the essentialseco. Basically you can't exploit it anymore for better prices.
World border- You can no longer enderpearl out of the world barrier.
Quests- Quests will be implemented for exp and money.
Rules- Insiding is allowed again. Please read them I hate banning people /rules
Combat- You can not cheese out of combat anymore with commands not listed on config such as /mob arena join or spectate.
SongPlugin- For events and major holidays I will have noteblock music playing in the background. You can turn it off with /mboff or turn jukebox off in game sounds.
Crates- New roulette crates and rewards for them. Each crate now has specific armor related to them instead of the op God armor in every crate.
/exp- every rank can now check how much exp they have to upgrade spawners.
Reset- The reset will be a full end/nether/world/mcmmo/and player reset.
Ban Reset- Everyone will be unbanned. Don't get yourself banned it's not hard!
Ftop- Plugin has been updated with economy and spawners.
Events will be in place for something to not just do yourself, but with your entire faction. When you all come back this Monday I will have a halloween scavenger hunt set up with a prize at the end of it! Everything will be in spawn and warzone so check around to start it up!
I hope you all have an awesome Halloween and will hope to see you all back and prepared for Surreals future!

I'd like to include that due to financial issues, we're going back to just a single Factions server. That's how I originally created the server and I know I made many promises that I never fulfilled however I take full blame for the Skyblock launch failing. It was due to poor timing and it was completely rushed, which I don't want to do with this map and that's why we've waited. We might have the hub still however the only server to join will be Factions unless there's enough support to add other servers. If there is anything at all that you'd like to see as a part of the new map, please let me know because I'd like to make this map more fun than the prior.
Since coming I have noticed a multitude of problems with the server. The first being the small player base. This has led me and Mystic to make the critical decision of restarting the map. The player had a small player base of 5-10 players which is unhealthy for a community which wishes to grow and thrive.
By the time of the restart we will have a lot of advertisement in place from various youtubers :playing and actively recording/streaming this next map. We hope this will grow the player base significantly.
The Owner of the Faction at the top of '/f top' by the end of the map will receive a $250 buycraft token! We hope this will increase the competitivity on the server and reward our most loyal, dedicated players.
For the time being you can play our sky block server.
The release will be on the Saturday the 2nd of September.
Another problem was the toxic community that factions had. This as a result of weak punishments. I have set up a new punishment system which you can view below. Our staff should be enforcing these punishments from now on.
Cheating - Self explanatory, no cheats are allowed on the server.
Ban Evading - When someone logs onto another account if they are banned on one already.
Xray - Using X Ray to find ores or see people.
Toxicity - Being excessively horrible to people in chat (covers homophobia,sexism,etc)
Racism - Use of any racism.
DDOS/DOX - DDosing is intentionally taking someone's ability to access the internet, DOXing is releasing someone's personal information.
Server Disrespect - When someone is abusively critical of the network.
Abusing a Glitch - If something is not meant to be in the game and someone uses it to obtain an advantage.
Staff Disrespect - If a player excessively and abusively criticises a staff member.
In all honesty I don't want to see the server's end yet, but I don't personally have time to run it anymore because I'm too busy with my academics in college. The server costs around $100 a month altogether and if someone from the community
Wow. I'm DEMENTEDGUN77. Been here since the beginning, now I'm seeing the end. It's sad.
Wow it’s been a long time I have been on this server. It has finally died. Thank you all for the years of fun I had here. From Sweg to dankcell and so on. It’s been great! -The_Emperor14, Kevinchase11, Polarexpresso
I love how someone actually wants to help after months of doing nothing and then one kid shuts him down. This is why the server went down hill I didnt know what to fix because none of you told me what to fix until last minute
