Hey guys,

I thought I'd just let you all know that we have since shut down the current live Factions server, this is only due to the reset of Factions 2.0 coming out soon, so we're putting it on to the main network under a whitelist mode while we do the final touches to prepare for the release. If you have any questions about this please let me know in the discussion section. There will be a post some time this week containing an exact time and date for the release, so stay tuned for that.

Thanks everyone,
AMinecraftDev.
Hey guys,

First of all I'd like to thank everyone for all the questions and suggestions in the past month towards Factions, and I'm delighted to give you all information based on that later on in this post, and I'd also like to remind everyone, if you haven't already joined our discord, then please feel free to do that because we will be/have been posting every single tiny update to our Discord server, however we will still post the big updates on the forums too. :)

FACTIONS
Now to get on to the exciting news about Factions, first of all I'd like to thank everyone for being so patient towards waiting for Factions to be released, and I'm very proud of how it's working out, I'm very excited for this upcoming season of Factions as it will unlock so many new never-seen before features on Minecraft. The reason that Factions is being delayed at the moment is just because the builds are not ready yet, but they'll be great so trust me, it'll be worth the wait. Also another reason for the delay on the release of Factions is because we are wanting to wait till we can find a YouTuber as we don't want to release Factions without one otherwise it'll either be a flop or majority of the people who play on Skyblock currently will play on Factions and then Skyblock will die. So we will have some exciting news on that later on, but until then if you have any suggestions on people we should look into doing a series on our server then hit us up with a PM on here. :) Now...
Hello all,

I'm sorry for this long delayed post, since either of @Herbi and I posted it was about the Skyblock 2.0 Reset, we were extremely happy with the turnout reaching nearly 200 players during the first few weeks, which has dropped off as expected. I will be from now on posting every single tiny update to Discord, so everyone can stay up to date, I will re-post the big updates here though :)

|Skyblock
What is happening with Skyblock, why is there so much lag?
Currently with Skyblock we've implemented as much as possible without involving custom plugins which takes time sadly, otherwise we'd have around 15 Brand new plugins in Skyblock right now, that is why we're currently looking to hire more developers, what about the lag? Sadly it's an issue which is fixable but is going to take time, up-time has actually increased dramatically over the past few days but isn't noticeable as when the server starts to lag there seems to be no admin online, which is why we're lowering the boss timer to 8 hours and going to look into having an auto restart every 8 hours and 30 minutes, whereas every other server will have a 24 hour restart timer. :)

|Factions
According to @AMinecraftDev 1st of June will be the latest reset date, yes we know that is still quite awhile away but it will be worth the wait, as it will be a game changing type of Factions, one that you have never seen or heard of before. It will still contain your usual features like Custom Enchants, and KoTHs and things like that, but there will be so much more on there that you'll never have seen on any other server. More to come on that later on, closer to the...
Hello all,

The time has come, to release Skyblock 2.0, Yes it has come sooner than we have expected but numerous amounts of players and staff have been asking for one, so we have ;) As most of you know Boosted has only been up for roughly five months, In the past five months we have gone through a lot, these problems which we went through helped us to grow as server owners and as a community together. Together Jack, the admins and I have been working on Skyblock 2.0 for over a month now and have already completed majority of Skyblock, the one week of beta will begin on the 3rd of March! Yes you heard right! You will only have to wait three days to check the new Skyblock :) Once this one week beta is done we estimate to have the full release on the 10th of march.

This is a small list of all the new features which will appear

Short Questions & Answers:
What will be reset?
Money balances, mcMMO levels, inventories, enderchest contents, playervault contents, islands, and everything along those lines.

What will happen to the current server?

The current server will stay up during the one week beta on the 3rd of March (Items in auction house will be cleared when beta starts) But once the beta Is over and the official release Is in place the current skyblock will be wiped :)

What about Buycraft purchases?
Everyone who has won an official Rankupgrade will keep there rank or if you have purchased your rank through Buycraft, they will stay, however only the last two weeks of Bosses, Crates, Care packages and boosters will be sent through

How will farms work?
You will not need to have a gap between the hoppers and the lava when creating an automatic farm as the items will not burn In the lava :)

What about bosses?
The bosses have been completely re done, There will only be 4 bosses to choose from, Goblin Prince, BloodFiend, Dread Lich and Valanir The Restless, Anyone that has purchased a boss in the past two week will be given a boss that is similar in price compared to the old version. Below is a gif with some more boss information :)

What happens to 1.11 items If I am In 1.8?
When it is advised to be In 1.11 for the awesome new mobs and blocks, You still will be able to play in 1.8, The only change there will be Is, If you see a 1.11 item when you are In a 1.8 minecraft you will see a different texture oppose to what someone In 1.11 will see. For example, Shulker boxes are new to 1.11, If you are In 1.8 you will see a furnace, But the item will not change. If you have a 1.11 Item in your inventory and you decide to switch to 1.8 the item will not disappear, You will just see a different block until you go back into 1.11 and vice versa.

When the beta Is released, If you find a bug of any type, You will be rewarded upon showing a staff member.

In the comments section put your In-game name & why you love BoostedNetwork, I will choose three people and you will be awarded with a rank upgrade. :)

Hello everyone,

Over the past few weeks Herbi and I have been working constantly to bring you new and interesting aspects into your Skyblock life, typically we don't normally make formal posts regarding to updates or implements instead we create a single post explaining what is needed to know about that update, I sincerely apologise as I prefer to do a formal post which goes into everything in depth, In this post I'm going to recap things we've previously released and made posts for as we're constantly editing our current plugins to optimise them and keep up with the current economy. I'd also like to thank everyone for helping us double our server goal and like to announce that we have released two more payment methods which are Paymentwall and PayGol. We will be picking the winner of the Razer item within 24 hours! don't forget to get your last minute entry: http://boostednetwork.org/forums/threads/razer-giveaway.553/

Bosses:
Currently every 12 hours either the Spindlekin or Dwarven Centurion will spawn at /Arena use /boss time to check when the next spawn will be, we've also released /bosses which shows you their health and tier level, we will be updating these to include there strengths and a backstory! If you wish to fight a low tier boss privately or a higher tier boss we're currently selling them in the Buycraft store, we're offering private and public boss fights!

I will no longer be on my PC much anymore, If anybody wants to chat feel free to add my skype: live:cslattery77, I am truly sorry It has come to this, Thank you to everyone who made BoostedNetwork what it has come to today, I will leave you all with a little bit of myself.

"Live your life, Don't waste your days on the negative energy of others, Remember you're not your house, You're not your car, And no matter how big your bank account is, Your grave is six feet under, Just like everybody else's, So enjoy the days you have, Right here in this moment is all you're guaranteed." -Neil DeGrasse Tyson.

I love you all, Goodbye.
