The Future of Skyblock

Hey everyone! The other week we put up a poll on our Discord asking if you, the community, would rather us reset Skyblock and update it to 1.16.4 with all the new Nether related features or don't reset it (which also comes with no 1.16.4 update).

Once the poll had ended the results were 430 votes for the Skyblock 1.16.4 reset and 136 votes for no reset, so it was clear to us that you did want a reset with the new 1.16.4 features!

In this blog post we'll go over all of our plans for 1.16.4 Skyblock and how we plan to handle it going into the future. We'll also go over some changes that'll happen to our current Skyblock towards the end of this post.

Before we get into it though I'd just like to clarify that Skyblock will be resetting for quite some time, we plan to have this new Skyblock out at the start of 2021, so you've all got time!

| A Never Ending Skyblock

Every Skyblock server that Chasecraft has had since it launched on May 30th 2019 has had a reset. However, we understand that resets aren't always favoured by our community, we understand that we don't all really want Skyblock to reset for 1.16.4 but unfortunately it has to happen due to our current setup.

For this 1.16.4 update we want to create a Skyblock that'll never, ever reset and continue adding new content to keep the experience fresh and fun.

We are aiming to release 1.16.4 Skyblock around the start of 2021! This new Skyblock will not only feature 1.16.4 but also a lot of cool new features. We can't wait to share what we have in mind!

| What happens to Builders, Enchanters, Grinders and PvPers?

Our Skyblock Builders and Grinders servers are doing quite well! Both servers have active communities, however, our Enchanters and PvPers servers are almost averaging 0 to 5 players.

In order to free up some time and resources from our team we feel it is best to get rid of the Enchanters and PvPers servers so we'll be able to focus more resources on other areas of the network such as Minigames.

What happens to my island on Enchanters and PvPers?

Your island, a long with everything else (excluding some store purchases - more explained below) will be gone. We're going to dedicate a section to what exactly happens, this section can be found at the bottom of this blog post.

When will Enchanters and PvPers be deleted?

We will be deleting only the Enchanters and PvPers Skyblock servers on the 29th of November at 1 AM EST. During this time we'll also be performing maintenance on all Skyblock servers as we do some major backend updates.

| What will happen to my stuff?

As we reset Skyblock Builders and Grinders and merge them together this means that most of the things you have on both servers will be gone. This is the same for the Skyblock PvPers and Enchanters servers that we are deleting. However, most of the store related purchases will be kept.

Below we've created two sections, one for what you will lose and one for what you will keep. Please read them carefully!

What will I lose?

  • Your Skyblock island and everything in it
  • All items in your inventory and ender chest
  • Any currencies such as money and mob coins
  • Anything you won from crates
  • Anything you bought from the mob coins shop
  • Purchased Powerups, Bundles, Crate Keys and Monthly Crates
  • Anything you recieved from Bundles and Monthly Crates

What will I keep?

  • Purchased Ranks & Rank Upgrades
  • Purchased Perks
  • Purchased Tags and Trail Packs

Anyway, that's it for this blog post! We're super, super excited to share more information on the new, never resetting Skyblock server we plan to release! Just remember that we're aiming to release it around the beginning of 2021.
