Hi everyone,

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.

It's been a great run. WoM was the only Minecraft server that I kept playing on. Thanks for creating such an amazing server. I'm sure all of us miss it.

Lets hope the successor is at least as amazing.

Also look forward to seeing you on the new server, H4X!

I dun changed my username back. Due to popular demand (Not really), and because I felt like it. Watch me videos here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC4DCIYa2lHEG2FzsGj2ZLjQ

I was wondering why I

I was wondering why I couldn't log on. I didn't get to play all that often because of work, but I still played whenever I could. I'm going to miss WoM. It gave me many years of entertainment.

A long long time ago...

I can still remember how that music... Used to make me smile... And I knew if I had my chance, that I could make those people dance, and maybe they'd be happy for a while...

It's been my pleasure to play a part in WoMs history (:

You taught me everything I know H4X, I can't express my gratitude enough.

I hope to make you proud with our next chapter.

Man...

I was just thinking about giving WOM another go and all. I used to play the Classic server back in 2011

Many feelings.

It has been a good run. Been on the hunt ever since the closing of WoM, still no server comes close. I never thought a Minecraft server would become so important to me, and for that (with all the love in the world) I hate you, H4X. Because I hate being wrong. Anyways. Thanks to all those that made this community irreplicable. Looking forward to the things to come. Hope I'm still around.

And of course, if the administration needs me, someone will know how to find me. 

Goodbye, for now. 

 

Oh, and, merry Christmas everyone!

The only kind of stoned I get is redstoned

RIP WOM

I'm now just a college student who thought what the hell I'll leave my Xbox at home so I can make sure I study for finals harder. Boy has that been the saddest thing that has happened to me, I have been forced to watch netflix on my laptop, when I had a perfectly good tv sitting in front of me. So just messing around I decided what the heck, i'll dl minecraft and mess around and lets see the new updates, since I, nor any of my friends have played in the past 4-5 years. I played singleplayer for 20 minutes before I realized what I really wanted to come back to was the community that I felt a part of. This server is what minecraft was for me. I played a game with some irl friends and we could meet other people in the same situation. I miss the old times now and again, and I miss most of all this community. Though me and wertyman789 are real life friends, I honestly feel like I left that part of our friendship in this server. Me and wertyman789 were the head of the group SPQR Rome, Not the spinoff ones, we were the legit rulers of the server at a point in time. I remember the humble beginnings where we were grief by Oceans over and over and we could never move on. But then me and wert started getting more of our friends into the game and grew to eventually destroy Oceans from the inside under my lead. But again this isn't a bragging story it's an informative one where I remember a part of my best friend being left behind on that mushroom island that got destroyed and started the end of SPQR as we knew it. We both still communicate but I really do miss the community. I miss you all, I miss the days of running home off the middle school bus to get on the server with all of you. I didn't forget about mr crimley either, or SWKineo, or bruins, or any of the others. Thanks H4X
Sincerely, CoFounder of SPQR, colbyvillani

I would love to see this old server backup again, and I'll do anything to make that happen.

Thank you so much.

Thank you so much for the hours of entertainment you all have brought me, for the past 4+ years. I've never been this dedicated to a game, much less a gaming community. Thank you for all the good times. It will no doubt be missed.

I want a single player only client.

I realize that WoM is no longer playable, however I was hoping that someone could offer me a single player only game client built off WoM as it's source. As long as it has everything but multiplayer, I will be happy. I never got a chance to try out the single player portion of WoM nor did I get to play it before the Minecraft 0.30 servers were taken down. All I ask is that I at least have a single player version of the WoM client with the hacks and survival from old versions.

Boy oh boy.

Hey there, everyone!
Decided to hop back on to the website and I learn that what was quite easily the best Minecraft server this side o' Canada is now down. But on the bright side, the lads are bringing back something else that the WoM we loved did not have. Oh sign me up for this I want to be able to help wherever I can.
