  BLACK FRIDAY UPDATE!
Posted by: Stef - 11-19-2018, 06:19 PM - Forum: Announcements - Replies (5)

Hello people!

Today I am announcing the BLACK FRIDAY update! The BlazeVortex 2.0 update was released around 2 months ago and we can say that there is still a lot of work to do before we can work ourselves up to the tops again! So here are the changes coming this weekend:

Warzone will be changing to KitPvP with the old kits. The menu’s and style has been improved and will fit with the new network colors. Performance and other issues have been patched.

Prison will finally be released and I want to apologize for the huge delays it has had. The server will be tested in all possible areas the week before the release to make sure everything is going to be smooth Smile

EVENTS:
As of now, our events have been a bit unorganized and just straight up buggy. I have now created a system that works for everyone and fits the need of the server. We now have a lobby and multiple world systems to protect events interfering with each other. This makes us able to create and prepare events more efficiently!

The event this weekend will be TNTRUN and I just wanna let everyone know that all events in the future will be tested and prepared as it should be.

We will have a sale of 50% the entire weekend on https://store.blazevortex.com/

DATES:
Sale (23/11/2018-26/11/2018)
Event (25/11/2018)
Update (23/11/2018 16:00 GMT+1)

After this weekend I will be working on small updates and new features across the entire network to make the server more enjoyable and unique. Once these features are introduced we will start new advertising campaigns to get high player counts once again.

It mostly speaks for itself, you will all be released at the same time in an arena, with your only and main task being killing to survive.

Posted by: Gatesway - 10-21-2018, 12:19 AM - Forum: Announcements - No Replies

Hello there!

It's time for our second weekly event, this week we'll be doing a typical vanilla event.

As this might require some explaining to do;

- You will be let loose in a vanilla world for about an hour. Your goal will be to acquire the most of handy items to PvP. 
- After that hour expires, you will all be teleported into the end world, where the first one to kill the dragon and bring me the egg, wins.

Notes:

- PvP will be disabled in the vanilla world; in the end however you may be attacked by your fellow members.

Practical:

The event will take place Sunday the 21st at 16:00 CEST.

Hope everyone will enjoy.

Hello everyone,

I am here to announce the first weekly event which is UHC!

The event will be hosted and created by me. I may be playing myself for a YouTube video if another staff member takes the spectator role. Next weeks event will probably be hosted by someone else and it will be a different type of event. Weekly there will be a different type of events and prices to get more players online on the weekend and have the promotion for the server! Some more details about the UHC game and what it all has included with features will be added tomorrow.

UHC will be on Sunday 14:00 CEST (Time based on player stats)

The server will be open for player selection etc one hour before the event. You will be able to join the event with /event on all servers. Everything will be announced ingame and on discord with countdowns etc.

Hope you all like the new weekly events!

Hello people!

It is time to reveal the update! I have worked for 4 months on this update and a lot has changed. I decided to start on this update to get this network to a new level and give myself a new challenge with making servers.

The FORUMS & INGAME development is still in full progress and can still change! Please give feedback on our suggestion & bugs section. Prison will delay due to some problems with the builds and the release date will be released as soon as possible.

I found myself spending more time on solving issues with bugs that were on the server due to systems that were installed from ages ago. Since BlazeVortex was always online and running 24/7 I could never really fix these and needed hours of downtime. This update contains a lot of major changes to fix that I don't have to focus on development and that I can have more free time for being online and doing management. This server just started on a new journey to be better than it has ever been. So here I introduce... the BlazeVortex 2.0 update!

  Modification List
Posted by: Stef - 09-16-2018, 05:12 PM - Forum: Announcements - No Replies

Modification List
The following list of approved and disapproved modifications are heavily enforced by our staff team.

Allowed Modifications

Optifine
Optifine is a client that has the main purpose of improving FPS (Frames Per Second) client side. Although Optifine has some flaws, the main objective of this modification is to allow a player to have an improved experience whilst playing Minecraft.

Shaders
The shader’s mod attempts to make the game look more aesthetically pleasing by adding more details to things, primarily shadows, such as from clouds or people. Side effects may include animated, transparent water or flowing tree leaves. This mod is purely aesthetic and only affects the client side.

Armor Status / Effect Status
These 2 mods present themselves by providing more things on the GUI (Graphical User Interface) they appear as armor and potion effects on the screen saving the player from looking into their inventory.

Rei's Minimap
Rei’s minimap provides a player with an on-screen map in the corner of their choice, as long as this mod doesn’t have entity tracking (Radar) enabled it gives no advantage.

F3 + B
Pressing F3+B in the game will show a hitbox around players and is available in vanilla Minecraft.

Damage Indicators
Damage Indicators show when a player is taken damage, how much damage they’ve taken as well as providing a portrait showing their health.

Toggle Sprint and Sneak
This is a client-side only mod that allows a player to toggle sneak and sprint. When ToggleSneak is active, the player can press the sneak button to turn sneaking on/off.
With the Toggle Sprint option on, simply holding the forward button makes you sprint.

Disapproved Modifications

Hacked Clients
Hacked clients attract a ban as per the rules on our forums.

AutoClickers etc.
Anything which can give you an unfair advantage or adapts your hardware/software will result in a hacked client ban.

LabyMod 2.5 and below (LabyMod 2.6 and up is allowed):
The reason why LabyMod is disabled is due to the fact that you can Gapple Hit and Has a mini-map with Radar.

World Downloader
World Downloader is prohibited.

If you have any further questions please contact a staff member.
