Thought I would drop some official word on the future of WoM game servers.
As you all know, my vision since opening the doors in 2009 was to provide a 100% free gaming experience for minecraft players with an awesome community and have continued to do so for the whole time.
At this time, the game servers are shutdown and won't be returning for the foreseeable future. This is mainly due to myself having zero time to maintain and evolve the WoM gaming experience. (note: website will stay online)
This game server shutdown was going to happen a couple of years ago when it was requiring more of my very limited time, but the community staff stepped up and really pulled WoM into shape, providing players with years of entertainment.
WoM has always been a community run organisation which has worked amazingly well for the past 7 years.
One staff member that really sticks out and has kept the WoM engine firing on all cylinders, is MrSnowGlobe.
Onto the new chapter...
MrSnowGlobe and some staff have been working on a new exciting minecraft experience which I fully support and will be assisting where I can.
This will not be a WoM service, so no WoM data will be transferring over due to privacy reasons which I take very seriously.
MrSnowGlobe will provide further details when he is ready. As a side note: I will likely be frequenting this new service since I won't have the burden of being the Chief. I will actually be able to relax and play as a normal player!
So, to summarize the changes for WoM as a whole:
- WoM Web servers will be staying ONLINE
- WoM Game servers will be OFFLINE
- WoM Discord channel will be getting rebranded
- WoM IRC was abandoned a long time ago, why are you still using that?
- Anything else I missed will probably stay ONLINE
Thanks for playing on WoM for the past 7 years and who knows, maybe I'll spin a game server up again someday.
