Discord - How to Join and News
Due to the recent spam we have disabled normal users to create invite links on JR, If you want a friend to join JR Discord please get them to go to https://discord.jrnetwork.net

While they are required to sign up to the JR website this will stop a lot of this silly advertising DM spam we are getting. 

We recommend not doing this back to the server in question that is causing this spam, we just want the spam to stop and NOT to cause a war between communities.

Also don't forget we are still here, While our website is not as active our Discord is always busy. I watch the website on a daily basis if an issue comes up but if you want a quicker response our Discord chat may get you a community member quicker.


Enjoy your gaming, Game On!

JR has started to host Valheim servers for our members. So far our main Valheim server has been rather popular, due to the small size of the servers we will be setting up a few more for our community.

We once started working on Quests years ago, but this never surfaced. Contrary to that we now have started working on quests which you can find around spawn. Only a few are setup due to testing, but it's something we are working on.

In the last few days the following updates have taken place:

Updated Spigot and Waterfall

Installed Quests, Quests GUI

Changed the way mob's are leveling, they now become harder as you leave spawn.

Updated additional plugins we use.

MobArena Returns!
Guess what! We have just re-released mob arena. A big shout out to The original Collessum creator (its an old JR build) Bluemoonredsun and Nerve for helping to pull this off.

Take a look at /warp mobarena to play  

Mob arena is back!

Spawn work was undertaken today

You can now switch off PVP if you do not want to fight with the community (PVP is off by default to switch it on do /pvp) PVP will automatically switch on when you enter duel arenas. Please note there is a cooldown, if you switch on PVP you will need to wait 60 seconds to switch it off, this is to prevent misuse of the command.

Team Fortress 2 MVM
Due to the continued success of our MVM TF2 server we have setup a second server so more players can get in on the action.

While looking at stats I can see that nearly every day the server becomes full. I have also noticed on the logs that during these times people attempt to join the servers while full.

As of this article and posting the server 2 minutes ago, the new server is nearly full already:


Hopefully this helps! You can see all our servers at https://servers.jrnetwork.net/ If we see more demand for TF2 we will boot up more servers.

Servers List, Website and Minecraft
A few updates have been happening as you may have seen recently.

I'll run through them quickly so you are aware of everything that has happened:

New look: This was supposed to be released some time this year after I had finished development, due to issues with our forum on our old theme I had no choice but to switch to the new look. This new look is still under construction so be aware things may change or be buggy during this time.

Mobile: If you noticed mobile was messing around and looked terrible this has been resolved now.

Server list: We have removed unused servers on our server list during our tidy up. This also required a reset of player stats. Next time this happens we will not have to reset player stats but unfortunately due to a bug on our servers list / app this was required.

Clans: We have changed clubs to become clans. This allows you to create a group / community within our JR community, you can create a blog / news feed / a community discussion / gallery and more. Soon there will be support for paid for clans where community members can purchase a membership to keep your clan running smoothly. Check it out here: https://jrnetwork.net/clubs/

Dev updates on website: These update logs will be posted when ever I get a chance and are public. You can find dev updates on the dev blog listed here: 

Minecraft updates: I have just enabled dynmap found here: http://quigon.jrnetwork.net:1888/ This is to showcase our communitys progress on the minecraft server. More updates will happen soon to minecraft, we have not forgotten one of our many roots.


There will be more information soon, including new prizes, events and more servers. We are JR, we are still standing, we will game on together.

Recent Development
I haven't posted much in this blog in recent time. But now due to many changes around JR I feel we must.

Well there will be some change around here soon, be prepared for updates and more stuff soon. 

Any ideas? PM me, I'm listening

Due to many issues with the ARK server software, server usage and the constant hand holding ARK requires I am sad to announce we have discontinued ARK for other future projects.

As a team we want to provide you good gaming servers that run correctly without us having to intervene and fix things all the time. We run linux servers and ARK's server does not work well with linux and it won't ever due to the way Wildcard is.

I'm sorry that we have to close ARK like this but it's not worth the amount of money we are putting in for hosting the servers.

Expect different servers to take over ARK!

24/07/2019 tf2 event - winner
I would like to thank all those who joined in for the event. It was definitely a blast. All that craziness, confusion and laughter, I'm definitely going to be looking for more of that. 


Now as promised I did say that the best would get rewarded, as such I'd like to announce that the winner for this event is @Drake,Spyshit06.

Played well with every single class, both offensively & defensively, was capable of pushing forward and assisting his team, while having fun with the rest of us.


Thanks again & Congrats.

Hey all, 

I just wanted to make a short post to update you all that although it may seem that most items have been lost in ARK, don't worry! we're currently working to resolve this. 

It seems that following from the recent Ark update, all server configurations have been wiped. However, we do have backups and will be reloading these later this evening. Until then, the server has been closed.


Sorry for the inconvenience which this has caused and we'll update you once this has been resolved!
