Following the news that Blizzard has banned "several thousand" Hearthstone bot accounts comes a more severe penalty for players engaging in the process known as 'win trading'. Win trading, as I understand it, is when players game the system in Ranked Play by having two accounts battle each other, in order to artificially move themselves up in the MMR (MatchMaking Rating) rankings. While botters were initially given a two-month ban (the penalty has since been upgraded to a permaban from here on out), win traders have seen their accounts banned permanently from the get-go, as explained in a statement by Blizzard here . Here's the relevant part:"We’ve recently banned Hearthstone accounts that were found to be participating in win trading. W...

Being honest, I really don't know the benefit or the cause of these constant attacks but we aren't going anywhere.
In other news we are on a better server, have a bit of a better backup policy, new servers are being added and we are getting further. We were going to switch to this server a little while back but we have been forced to move right away today due to issues with our previous host hetzner.... yeah not going back to that place.
Anyway, Minecraft will be back up sunday as im working tomorrow as I wasn't expecting to switch servers this quick.
Best Regards to all,

Hey everyone,The creative server has undergone a massive clear out. We have emptied out every single plot as the world did become a bit of a mess. The idea here is that we have nice fancy looking builds around the spawn, which will be selected by the staff team over the course of the worlds existence. This competition will run over the course of a month (8th September - 8th October). Each build should be confined to a plot, we will be picking 4 winners for this contest!The builds should fill up as much of the plot as possible.The builds are to be built on the creative server.The prizes are currently undecided but will be announced in the near future, once the staff team has decided upon them :)There are no restrictions on how many people...

We are rolling out a Store system across most of our steam based gaming servers atm (TF2 , CSS , CSGO , ND , etc). Its a work-in-progress, and not everything will work on each server as some are server specific. However the base/core features (earning credits for kills, capturing flags, staying on the servers, etc) should be fine, its just things like equipment/etc that may or may not work on some servers (eg because of valve's changes to tf2 we can't have some equipment on our characters, eg custom hats, etc). Unfortunately due to limitations or blocks in the actual games (valve rules/etc) theres nothing we can do about the things that don't/can't work.What this system is is basically a ingame credits and shop feature, wherein you gain...

It has come to our attention that there are people going on TeamSpeak 3 servers and deliberately abusing exploits to cause other users clients to crash and require log deletions or client re-installs to work again. Please note we will not put up with that on any of our servers and you will be PERMAMENTLY banned across ALL our gaming, voice, and site systems!For those of you who have been effected by this we apologize if it happened on our host, please report any such issues.The exploits being used will be fixed in TeamSpeak 3 clients 3.0.15 when officially released, but for now if you so wish you can update to the current BETA client which has the fixes apparently already in place and ready to go.To do this you simply create a "update.in...

For those of you unaware of what Watch Dogs is, it is a game where you are put in the point of view of Aiden Pearce, a brilliant hacker who is able to hack pretty much everything and anything in the game. While playing the character you will have much choice in how you use this power, you can help stop crime from occurring or do exactly the opposite to that...It seems like a totally unique concept although watching game footage it does seem to have a open world sort of experience similar to what you may have seen in other games (such as GTA ect.).Personally I'm very excited for this game it sounds like it will be one of Ubisoft's best games to date - you'd certainly hope so with the length of time they have taken with it :PIf you'd like...

What does the recent updates mean for JR? Well nothing really we have updated all our servers to support clients to join!.
There were no major changes in this update besides adding to be able to change your username, but we are not able to do so yet until mojang allows it (after 1.8 comes out by the sounds of it).
1.7.7 was released hours after 1.7.6 which included some bug fixes. The reason why players were not able to join yesterday as 1.7.6 included a protocol update, which we had to update all the servers to support.
Now it looks like 1.7.5, 1.7.6 and 1.7.7 clients can join our servers Correct me if i'm wrong, and can anyone confirm if 1.7.2 works? leave a comment below.
