VERATIC SKYBLOCK

After the initial success of our first ever Skyblock realm, ‘OPIA’, we have decided to introduce an additional realm named: ‘VERATIC!’

Owned by both ZMCNikolai and Mentally, this realm will be much more PvP orientated consisting of:
  • MCMMO
  • ENVOY DROPS
  • CUSTOM ENCHANTMENTS
  • A COMPETITIVE PLAYING FIELD
  • $500 CASH PRIZE POOL
It is a pleasure to be working with both Nikolai and Daniel as we embark on this new adventure!

BUT WAIT… WHAT ABOUT FACTIONS?!

Don’t worry! We haven’t forgotten about you faction players… We will have more information coming within the next couple of weeks, so stick with us and keep an eye out for announcements in the future!

STATEMENT RE: MICHAEL QUITTING YOUTUBE


Michael’s happiness and well-being has always been, and will always be, paramount to those he knows at OpiaNetwork. We will continue to provide our support and friendship as Michael transitions from his online persona. Consequently, however, his departure from YouTube also means a resignation from his role here as Owner. We would like to thank Michael for the contributions he made to the network and wish him the very best of luck in his future endeavours.

OpiaNetwork: Update #1… #2, #3, #4

Uh, oh. It’s been a while…

[​IMG]

It has been 64 days since our largely anticipated OPEN BETA release which happened way back on
October 14th. Can you believe it has been that long? This is when we released the mini-game aspect of our network, which included games such as: Castle Wars, Freeze Tag and Pickle. As much success as our mini-games first brought, it was unfortunately short lived. To add to that misfortune, external factors affected the promotion of these said mini-games and the hype, understandably, fizzled out.

Not to be beaten, the Management team recuperated and discussed strategies on how to get things back on track.

Thus, the creation of SKYBLOCK!

Skyblock was never something we initially considered; though, we’re really happy we chose to go down that route. We are in the process of building a solid community, generating players and you guys are genuinely having fun and that’s great!

Due to its success, we want to do more! Hypothetically, this could mean: releasing another Skyblock realm, perhaps Factions and returning back to our routes with mini-games! What we love most about this network is its potential. We have fantastic owners, endorsers, developers and both a talented staff and build team. Everything is in place to help this network grow and grow, I for one am looking forward to see it all unfold.

Braveheart speech over, let’s get onto some important news and updates!

We have been lucky enough...
Hi folks,

We would like to bring to your attention changes that have occurred to the way in which we review our Moderator applications.

Due to the large volumes of applications we were receiving, logistically it became inefficient to use the e-mailing system. Therefore, we have decided to go old-school and use the forums!

Please still use the template as provided here:

Official Rules

Created by @Liam
NO HACKED CLIENTS

OpiaNetwork has a zero tolerance attitude towards the use of hacked clients. The term "hacking" refers to the modifications of a vanilla Minecraft client. If these modifications allow users to perform actions that others cannot, giving a user an advantage, the user will be punished indefinitely.

If a staff member feels that a user is conducting such an act, and gains sufficient evidence, the user will be banned permanently.

N.B:- The length of punishments are set out in a ban guide, only available to our staff team. Nevertheless, staff members can use their discretion on a case-to-case basis if they believe a user deserves a more lengthy punishment.

RESPECT EVERY MEMBER OF THE COMMUNITY

We aim for our network to be a safe haven for players to escape the adversity of the real world. All members should feel welcome upon logging onto the network. Refrain from:

  • Harrasing
  • Abusing
  • Insulting
any users on our network.

NOTE: this rule extends to the staffing community.

Please show support and belief in our staffs' decision making. We always strive to have our members' best interests in mind when making decisions. If you disagree with a certain decision, we encourage to contest it in a mature, constructive manner. Being abusive and confrontational will not help the matter.

OPIA NETWORK DEVELOPMENT LOG #1
17/09/17

What is a “Development Log”?

A Development Log is a way of tracking our progress as a development team with both server-wide and internal updates. One member from the Research & Development team will post one of these articles every weekend with each log including multiple updates to our game modes, server back-end, as well as a few global updates should they occur.

Make sure to check out our development logs every week to see the changes that have been made to our network which may change how our games are played!

GLOBAL

  • Added /rejoin to go back to the previous server that you was in.
  • Fixed join priorities on all game modes.

FREEZE TAG

  • Added different types of "Ice Breaker" items which allow runners to free others faster.
  • Added blindness and slowness to all taggers before the round begins.
  • Added a knock-back stick to send taggers flying backwards.
  • Fixed bug with spawn protection which disallowed runners freeing other runners in certain areas.

CASTLE WARS

  • Added team chat! You can use “/teamchat <msg>” or “/tc <msg>” to communicate with your teammates during a game. Be careful though, moderators and above can still see your messages in team chat, so be appropriate!
  • Added the ability for players, who have previously left the game, to rejoin games.
  • Added a team selector.
  • Increased the blast radius and damage from TNT.
  • Changed the sidebar scoreboard to display a percentage (%) of how much core health is left as well as how many players are currently alive on each team.
  • Changed all shop prices for balancing purposes.
  • Fixed dead...

Introducing the Kyuzi Realm...

Our first realm to be added to the OpiaMC network will be the "Kyuzi Realm".

  • Factions have a limit of 25 members - each member having 100 power.
  • Alt accounts are not kicked from factions due to inactivity (this means if you wish to have a faction filled with alts for higher power, you can!)
