Kingdom now released!

Shicking Forums-AdminOwnerCSG posted Oct 27, 16

Hello Everyone!

We recently released the Kingdom server. The point of the server is to give power to the people to decide how the kingdom will be run; a roleplaying server. 

The default rank is the peasant. The peasant has to toil and gain money in the dangerous world. PVP is enabled everywhere so without order all peasants would kill each other. To gain more power and to lower the tax rate (taxable blocks disappear and get converted into money for the king, for peasants the max tax rate is 50%) the peasant can rankup to resident for $10,000 at spawn. The area outside of spawn and away from the roads has building enabled.

The resident can be upgraded to a higher rank by the king and has a lower tax rate (a max of 25%). They can also rent protected land in the castle. 

There is one player who is a king. The king has a lot of power over the other players of the server. In particular the king can set the taxrate for peasants and residents. He can also activate server wide bonuses, set builders (to improve the area around spawn) and set knights to enforce the rules and to maintain his own power. Both the king and the knights have more health. The king and the knights can also make normal players wanted - on death a wanted player will be sent to prison, where they have to mine a certain amount of diamonds to get out.

If a player is against the king or doesn't want to pay the tax rate they can desert the kingdom via /desert. By doing so the player gets a red name and on death will be sent to the prison with the maximum reward. The current standing king can pardon anyone in the prison (/unwant).

 The Church is the only area in the entire map with no pvp (/coords). The Town (/coords) has goods that you can buy low and sell high at the spawn castle. The town is near the rebel base so it is fairly dangerous to go there (rebels are usually not nice). However a good trek and up front investment can lead to $15,000 in profit per trip. 

There are no rules on Kingdom; only the rules set by the king. If the king wants to enforce them he has to send the knights to do his bidding. However, if players dislike the reign of the king, they can take matters into their own hands and fight for the throne. There is a KOTH at the coordinates 0,0, in the center of the castle, that lasts for 15 minutes. If a player manages to stay on the throne for that long they will become the new king and all previous knights, builders and bonuses will be reset. In this way there is a balance of power.

Have fun! We don't know what the server will lead to yet but it will be interesting to watch. If you have any suggestions / bugs, please let us know!

Fireball71101 If you could fix the throne that'd be great :(
ScarTheScarab The thing about kingdom and its tax system, is that its practically reflecting on the cruel system of taxes. The poor pa...

H And G District Release

Shicking Forums-AdminOwnerCSG posted Oct 19, 16

Hello Everyone!

Today we released two new districts on the prison server. The H District costs $65,000,000 and provides an exciting improved mine as well as a massive parkour with a special prize at the end! The G District is the best mine yet and features an expansive custom map. In both districts we decided to do something new - pvp is enabled everywhere except the actual mine. This means that pvp is even enabled in the shop. While the mines are the most profitable ones yet, getting there and selling your goods is very dangerous.

Both districts were made possible through the work done by ImagineFox, Riddeh, and the staff team. If you haven't had the chance yet, please do thank them. If you found any bugs/glitches in the new districts, please let us know!

We have something exciting coming in the next week or two wink Have fun!

zZKingShadowZz New staff????? hopefully i get it Lol #Shadow4Helper
bruiser7297 Thanks for doing everything you do Shicking/Staff.

Muto3 Woah, until now, I've never been a big fan of prison servers, but I'm actually enjoying this!
MrEs oh trust me Shicking, this prison is by far the best yet. The new economy basically removes any inflation that was once ...
Wreckaqe You work wonders Shicking, I'm actually coming on to check this revamp out, love you

Server Progress + Staff & Players

Shicking Forums-AdminOwnerCSG posted Jul 31, 16

Hello Everyone!

I wanted to continue summer with disclosing what we are working on adding to the server. At the moment we are working on finishing up the HG lobby conversion. We decided to temporarily remove the following arenas in order to not split our HG traffic: 1, 2, 5, 7, 11, 14 and 16. As the traffic on the HG lobby increases we will be releasing new custom arenas and possibly reinstating these closed arenas. I would like to take this opportunity to announce the release date – August 5th.On August 6th we are going to be holding a tournament at 1 PM PST. The prizes for this tournament are:

1st place:   $40 coupon
2nd place:  $25 coupon
3rd place:   $15 coupon

You may have noticed that the HG lobby is now being released before the Gun map and reset. This is due to an unforeseen event, however do not despair! Gun is the main priority after the release of the HG lobby. We are also hard at work on releasing the Kingdoms server. It will replace SkyGrid and will be ready sometime around the time Gun is released.

The staff is also planning a new Factions reset. While we cannot give out any more information as of yet, we can say that it will be a more “OP” version of the current factions - similar to what our factions used to be.

All of this is going on with another focus - advertisement. I'm going to be advertising the server on several different outlets in an attempt to attract and retain new players.

We are continuing with an update to staff. The updated staff team is as follows.

Promotions:

Ridder -> Creator

ImagineFox -> Jr. Mod

Limae -> Mod

Demotions & Resignations:

Munkei - Inactive

SpikeHike - Resignation

Bertus - Inactive

PVTheChosenOne - Resignation

I would like to take this opportunity to personally thank the demoted members for everything they did for the server. They were all a positive contribution to the staff team. The server truly wouldn’t have been the same without them.

Have fun!

BajanLucas I only met PV a few times, but every time I met him he was nice, polite, funny, and at the same time the best moderator ...
Muto3 I loved PV ;-; (Not in a gay way)
ExtremeTG pv was the best staff member imo, i will miss him
