During the month of October, we will be working on migrating the majority of the TechCraft Network to a new host. We're doing this for many reasons, such as better server hardware, better features, and just better value for money in general. While we're doing this, we also have a good opportunity to implement new features, rewrite some of our core systems, and slightly improve how the network works as a whole. This work has already started and should be finished sometime during October. This also means that we get to have a bit of fun on the old server, as the new server will be a complete replica which we can switch over to pretty much instantly. Because of this, it means that we can have fun completely destroying the server with no real side effects. If you want to get involved in this, be sure to join our Discord server (https://techcraftmc.com/discord) and check the "Events" menu for a date and time (unconfirmed as of right now, however, expected to be anytime from the 10th - 15th).
What will migration mean for players? To be perfectly honest, pretty much nothing apart from slightly better server performance, and slightly different ping. However, in the big picture, quite a lot will change. We will be introducing new processes for staff to make punishments and moderation more consistent on the network, as well as improving other automated systems around the network to improve security, and player experience. We will also be completely resetting bans, mutes, warnings, and all other punishment history meaning that you can have a clean slate to start again with. Furthermore, we will be resetting Warzone as well as introducing some quality of life changes such as item shop updates, cooldown updates, and client integration updates. We will also be releasing the long-awaited Practice update which will contain bot fights, ranked games, duels, and much, much more. And finally, the events update: We will be rolling out beta tester access to the event server to test out our new event core ready for its full release at a later date. There's a lot to look forward to after migration, trust me.
Final Notes And now for the stuff that I still like to mention, but nobody really cares about. Don't worry, I'll try and gloss over all of this fairly quickly.
